|Professional Tooth Whitening
This is a safe and effective way to lighten yellowed, discolored teeth. We have had great results with teeth that have absorbed stain throughout the years from smoking, coffee or tea. Precision fitting bleaching trays made in our office from dental moulds of your teeth, hold a safe Ph balanced, highly effective bleaching material directly to the tooth surface for maximum results. Treat yourself to a whiter, brighter smile! For those of you who have quit smoking, this is a great reward for a job well done!
Protective Mouthguards for all ages and activities
It's heartbreaking when we see a child or adult with a preventable sports or activity related injury to their teeth. Teeth, unlike bones, cannot repair themselves, and once chipped or broken must be repaired and maintained periodically throughout life. It is best to prevent these injuries from occurring in the first place through the use of a protective mouth-guard. A custom made mouthguard made at our dental office, uses professional materials and forming techniques to produce a guard with superior fit and protection, as compared to a "boil & bite" guard purchased from the store. Because the custom made guard fits so precisely to the teeth, it will not inhibit breathing or hinder speech. Comfort and playing performance are thus enhanced. For football, soccer, baseball, racquetball, basketball, wrestling, hockey, rollerblading, skateboarding, mountain biking, MOUTHGUARDS are a MUST! If you would like further information on custom mouthguards, please contact our office.
A dental implant, the most recent tooth replacement alternative, can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that along with connectors, is again restored into a functioning tooth. Replacement of single or multiple teeth can be accomplished without involving adjacent teeth as does a bridge or having something removable in ones mouth. For the person who wears full dentures, implants can anchor a denture and restore chewing ability and confidence. Dental implants offer many exciting alternatives not previously possible in the replacement of missing teeth.
