Comprehensive dentistry involves the diagnosis and treatment of general conditions affecting the teeth, gums, and jaw. Our doctors take a comprehensive approach to dentistry because it enables them to catch problems early and utilize more conservative treatment plans. Early diagnosis also reduces your risk of needing more extensive–and often expensive–treatment in the future.

Many of the things that we take for granted with natural teeth–including smiling, talking, and eating the foods we love–can all become easier again with restorative dentistry. We offer a variety of restorative dental treatments that can help you get your smile back and better than ever.
Restorative Dental Treatments

- Porcelain Crowns & Fixed Bridges
- Dentures & Fixed Bridges
- Dental Implant Restorations
- Root Canal Therapy
Crowns restore teeth to their appropriate shape and size after they have been damaged by decay, fractures, or bruxism (grinding). Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants, repair a discolored or misshapen tooth, and even protect a weak tooth in danger of breaking.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of a mercury-free composite material that can be closely matched to your other healthy teeth. They are virtually undetectable to the eye, and because they can be bonded directly to the surface of your teeth, they often leave behind more healthy tooth structure than traditional silver fillings.
An attractive smile can enhance your self-esteem, boost your confidence, and help you make better first impressions. Even subtle treatments like teeth whitening and tooth-colored fillings can make a BIG difference in the health and appearance of your smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening
Whitening your teeth can take years off your smile and make you look brighter and more youthful. We offer custom take-home tray whitening kits that give you the dramatic results you want in the comfort of your own home.
Periodontal (Gum) Care
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over the age of 35. If your gums feel tender, look red and swollen, or bleed every time you floss, you could be at risk for gum disease. Untreated gum disease has been linked to other serious health problems, so it’s important to keep your gums healthy with proper home care and biannual professional dental cleanings.
Gum disease used to require surgery more often than not. While surgery is still sometimes the best option, we can now treat many cases with less invasive techniques, including local antibiotics, deep cleanings, and medicated rinses.
- Diagnosis of Gum Disease
- Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)
- Arestin® Local Antibiotic Treatment
- Long-Term Maintenance Plans
Have you been told that you have or are at risk of developing gum disease? Ask us about Arestin®, an antibiotic powder that can stop the infection right where it starts. After your deep cleaning, our dentists simply apply Arestin to the small space between your tooth and gum tissue (known as the “perio-pocket”). The procedure is painless and has been proven to fight infection for up to 21 days.
