Dental ImplantsImplants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
BridgesPorcelain Fixed Bridges can improve chewing and aesthetic appearance, restoring the smile with a more permanent solution than dentures. Bridges replace missing teeth with artificial teeth. Your dentist will take a mold of the gap where a tooth is missing, and then send it to a laboratory to prepare a customized bridge. Before inserting the bridge, the surrounding teeth are prepared. The bridge is set into place and the artificial tooth is securely cemented to the adjacent teeth, restoring the attractive natural appearance and functionality of the tooth that was lost. If a resin-bonded bridge is chosen, the artificial tooth is secured by means of a metal appliance that attaches to the backs of adjacent teeth.
Restorative DentistryAlmost everyone will experience tooth decay at some point in his or her life. Swift detection and correction of tooth decay can minimize the significant expenses and inconveniences associated with more serious problems caused by tooth decay. Restorative dentistry treats all phases of tooth decay, from simple cavity fillings to entire tooth replacements.
Resin CompositeFillings. We will remove all areas of decay, and replace with a filling made of silver (amalgam) or composite resin. Composite resin fillings have surged in popularity because their appearance perfectly matches the natural appearance of teeth.
VeneersCustomized, wafer-thin veneers (also called porcelain laminates) are cemented directly onto the front of the tooth, resulting in a natural appearance that covers any irregularities or aesthetic concerns.
CrownsPorcelain Crowns maintain the aesthetic appearance of teeth by covering the entire visible surface of the tooth, while adding significant reinforcement and protection to the tooth. After removing all areas of decay, your dentist will take an impression of the tooth to be crowned and send it to a dental laboratory to create the crown. Crowns can be made of porcelain or gold. Porcelain crowns are extremely natural looking; virtually indistinguishable from other teeth, making them an ideal choice for visible teeth. Gold crowns pose no risk of chipping, and therefore are useful when crowning back teeth.
Root Canal TreatmentDr. Norman's areas of interest include Complex Restorative Treatment, Implant Restorations, TMD Therapy, Cosmetic Dentistry, Root Canals, and Invisalign Orthodontics. Dr. Norman is committed to excellence through Dental Continuing Education and has completed the core continuum at the renowned L.D. Pankey Institute. He's also a member of the Big Sky Tanner Study Group which deals with treating complex biting issues and is a member of the R.V. Tucker Cast Gold Study Club.
DenturesIll fitting, loose dentures. While dentures that are loose and ill fitting make eating difficult, they can cause painful sore spots on the gums as they slide around while chewing.
Tooth WhiteningCustomized trays are filled with a whitening gel and worn in the mouth for as little as 1 hour per day. In as little as one week, this process can erase most stains from coffee drinking and tobacco, as well as tooth yellowing associated with aging, producing a brilliant, bright white smile.
Cosmetic DentistryEnhancing the smile's aesthetic appearance can lead to increased self-confidence, improved social skills, and even a more positive outlook on life. Modern cosmetic dentistry merges advanced technology with fine art, and can often produce amazing results in less time than you would expect.
General DentistryDr. Summerville enjoys many different aspects of general dentistry, and, instead of focusing on one specialty, takes pride in offering many services. He is currently working toward attaining Fellowship status with the Academy of General Dentistry which indicates his strong commitment to furthering his dental education.
Teeth CleaningRegular dental cleanings, performed by a registered dental hygienist, are a crucial part of preventive dental care. By removing plaque and tartar, your oral health is enhanced and your risk of gingivitis and periodontal disease are minimized. Your dental hygienist will utilize manual instruments to remove moderate plaque and tartar buildup, or an ultrasonic device to scale away heavier buildup. The cleaning is finished with polishing, a pleasant procedure that cleans the surface of teeth, removes stains, and leaves the mouth feeling clean and refreshed.
Dental SealantsIn a root canal, your dentist will remove the infected pulp and replace it with a rubber sealant. The tooth is then covered with a protective cap, which reinforces the tooth against future fractures and enhances the tooth's appearance. Root canals have an extremely high success rate in saving teeth that would otherwise be lost to infection.
Dental ExaminationThe answer to this question depends on each individual patient's oral health. For patients with healthy gums, little or no history of decay, good homecare and no significant medical conditions, we can usually help you maintain optimal health by scheduling cleanings and check-ups twice a year. Not all patients fall under this category however. After performing a comprehensive exam, we will develop a plan together. It is our job to inform and educate you. We will discuss all of your treatment options, giving you the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure. You will never be pressured into making a decision. We customize each treatment plan to fit our patient's needs and wishes.

Tooth ExtractionsModern dentistry makes routine tooth extractions relatively comfortable, painless procedures. For seven days after the extraction, your tooth socket will require some care. You will be instructed to steer clear of the empty tooth socket when brushing your teeth. Some bleeding can be expected, and pain medication may be prescribed for residual discomfort.
