When Should My Child Visit the Dentist For the First Time?
We recommend waiting until your child is able to sit and participate in their dental appointment by following directions and cooperating with the hygienist and dentist. For most kids, this happens around the same time they begin school. We are happy to see kids over 5 years old. If you have a question about your child’s smile, give us a call, and we will help you find the best way forward.
How Can I Close Gaps Between My Teeth?
Depending on how much your teeth need to be adjusted, we offer several options. Traditional braces are a good solution for teeth that have severe gaps. ClearCorrect works great to minimize gaps between the teeth that show when you smile. For small gaps or minor alignment issues, dental veneers work beautifully to hide the gaps without using orthodontics.
How Can I Improve the Look of My Dull Smile?
The easiest and most affordable way to brighten a dull smile is with professional teeth whitening. We offer KӧR deep bleaching, which delivers stunning results – even for darkly stained teeth. To cover a stained or otherwise unattractive tooth, we can also place a dental veneer or cover the tooth completely with a porcelain dental crown.
How Can I Replace Missing Teeth?
Dental implants are the tooth replacements that will look and feel the most like your natural teeth. Using implants with dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or full dentures, we can replace anywhere from one tooth to a whole mouthful of teeth.
How Can I Straighten My Teeth?
What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?
A knocked-out tooth, or any injury to your teeth or soft tissues in your mouth, is a dental emergency. Tooth pain and abscesses can worsen quickly and spread, so they also require immediate care. If you lose a restoration like a filling or a dental crown, your tooth is vulnerable to infection and needs to be repaired right away. Call us for a same-day appointment or next-day appointment if you call after hours.
