Common Problems

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay, also known as caries or cavities, is preventable. Carbohydrate-rich foods, such as candy, cookies, soft drinks and even fruit juices, leave deposits on your teeth. Those deposits bond with the bacteria that normally survive in your mouth and form plaque. The combination of deposits and plaque forms acids that can damage the mineral structure of teeth and eat away at tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay.

Sensitive Teeth

Your teeth expand and contract in reaction to changes in temperature. Hot and cold foods and beverages can cause pain or irritation to people with sensitive teeth. Over time, tooth enamel can be worn down, gums may recede or teeth may develop microscopic cracks, exposing the interior of the tooth and irritating nerve endings. Simply breathing cold air can be painful for those with extremely sensitive teeth.

Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth are common among adults who didn't have orthodontic treatment as a child. We offer an instant solution for crooked teeth without depending on traditional orthodontic treatment. We use porcelain veneers to give you the beautiful, straight smile you've always wanted.

Gaps Between Teeth

Porcelain veneers and dental bonding procedures can be used to eliminate gaps between your teeth, leaving you with a more beautiful, attractive smile.

Cracks and Chips

Cracks and chips in teeth can occur for various reasons, including eating sticky candy or hard foods, suffering from trauma and teeth grinding. Some of the services available to fix cracked or chipped teeth include porcelain veneers, bonded fillings or porcelain inlays and onlays.

Mercury Fillings

While traditional metal-mercury amalgam fillings offer a strong, durable solution for filling cavities, their dark, dull appearance is very unattractive. We offer tooth-colored fillings as a more attractive solution for filling cavities. We can replace mercury fillings with more natural looking, tooth-colored fillings.

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth is a serious problem, both aesthetically and functionally. A missing tooth causes the whole structure of the mouth to change, resulting in shifting teeth, periodontal problems and deterioration of the chewing function. We offer dental implants to replace missing teeth. Whether you are missing one, several, or all of your natural teeth, dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your own.
