Tooth whitening is an inexpensive cosmetic procedure that can have dramatic lasting effects on your smile. By whitening your teeth, you can change your smile from a dull, plain look to a bright, vibrant look in just a short period of time. It is important to note however, that your teeth and gums must be healthy prior to bleaching your teeth.
Achieving healthy smiles requires excellent oral hygiene and regular oral health visits with our dental hygienists. Our dental hygienist not only reviews your health and cleans your teeth, but also can detect early signs of disease in your mouth. From there she can show you the proper way to promote a healthy environment for your teeth and gums. Your treatment is specifically tailored to your specific situation as everybody has different needs.
Dental implants are a modern day miracle for people needing replacement of diseased, hopeless or missing teeth. Those teeth can now be replaced with strong, natural looking teeth that even your closest friends and family will not be able to detect them up close. In addition, for those patients who are struggling with a loose lower denture, implants can be used to secure the denture so that you can chew your food more comfortably.
The first step in planning a cosmetic makeover is excellent communication with you. We must discuss your current smile and determine what changes need to be made for your new smile. Our part in this initial process it to understand your situation along with your expectations and offer you suggestions, possibilities, and options for a new, more desirable smile. At this time we will also discuss limitations if they are present in your particular case so that we are both very clear on what to expect in the final outcome. Remember that we are here for you, and we want to make certain that your expectations are exceeded.
Pain-Free Laser Treatment
Affordable New Laser Treatment for Herpes Labialis (cold sores) and Aphthous Ulcers (canker sores)! “We use our laser as a healing device for eliminating pain and shortening healing times associated with cold sores,” explains Dr Jim. “Removing them is a painless procedure that takes 30 seconds to 2 minutes. You will only feel a warming sensation on the skin during the procedure. The pain will be gone immediately and they disappear in 1-2 days after the laser procedure.” Similarly, the laser treats aphthous ulcers (canker sores) the same way. Pain is eliminated immediately after the laser treatment and healing of the ulcer follows quickly.
