General Dentistry 

Composite fillings
Replace decayed sections of a tooth or replace older fillings with tooth colored resin.

Root canals
Save your natural tooth by removing the injured or diseased pulp and nerve. The canals are cleaned and sealed.

Crowns
Placed over the tooth after a root canal to help protect the tooth from cracks. A crown can be used if a tooth is misshapen or broken to restore natural function and aesthetics. Crowns can also relieve pain in hairline cracks.

Bridges
Used to replace missing teeth. The device attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth and are permanently attached.

Dentures
These replace missing teeth, but are removable. Over time dentures and partials wear and may need to be replaced.

Tooth Extraction
The removal of teeth that can be due to many factors including periodontal disease, decay, or injury.

Dental Sealants
A coating that “seals” the deep grooves in teeth which acts as a barrier from plaque and acid.

TMJ Mouthpieces
These devices work to align the jaw and prevent tooth grinding or other unwanted symptoms.

Snoring Devices
Reduce snoring by holding your lower jaw slightly forward of its normal position while you sleep.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Bonding
In essence a tooth colored filling that can conservatively restore chipped, cracked, or misaligned teeth.

Porcelain veneers
Ceramics that bond directly to the front surface of the teeth. They are highly resistant to coffee, tea, or cigarette stains.

Inlays and Onlays
Similar to a filling. Porcelain is the material of choice because they are strong and can be matched to the natural color the surrounding teeth.

Teeth Whitening
Safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just tell us when you call or are at the appointment. We can do the whitening trays for you to pick up in a day or two along with the bleaching agents to correct moderate staining. If there is extreme staining or discoloration of teeth veneers or crowns may be a better or only option.

Zoom Whitening
Zoom Whitening is in house whitening that takes about 1 hour to complete, but the results are immediate if discoloration or stains are moderate. If stains are extreme veneers or crowns may be a better option.

Laser Smiles
Laser therapy in dentistry provides patients with a more comfortable dental treatment experience. Using laser dentistry, your dentist is able to deliver a precise treatment that is more comfortable, quicker, and provides more stunning results.

Invisalign
Straightens teeth with a series of alignment trays that are changed at each appointment. Invisalign is a great option for those not wanting to get braces and are good candidates for Invisalign treatment.

 

Home Care

After dental treatment, cosmetic reconstruction, or crown replacement, it is normal to experience hot and cold sensitivity and your gums may be sore for a few days. Warm salty water rinses three times a day will reduce pain and swelling. Mix one teaspoon of salt to eight ounces of water for the rinse. Ibuprofen may ease discomfort as well.

Temporary crowns may come off. Call our office or the emergence number, 334-294-9079, if this occurs. Bring the temporary to the office and it can be recemented.

After tooth extractions follow the list of instructions given to you at your appointment. Make sure to continue antibiotics that were prescribed until they are gone. If swelling occurs, place ice pack to the swollen area and if needed call the office or the emergency number, 334-294-9079.
