Root Canal TreatmentCrowns A crown, also referred to as a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but it can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment. Crowns may be used to replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining, restore a fractured tooth or protect a weak tooth from fracturing, or cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
Teeth CleaningDental Cleanings During your visit to our hygienist, you will receive a professional dental cleaning to remove the buildup of plaque (a bacterial film that can cause decay) and tartar (hardened plaque). Your cleaning will include scaling (removing plaque and tartar by manual and electronic means), root planing (a process of cleaning pockets to treat and prevent gum problems) and polishing (finishing the surface of the teeth to make them shiny and clean). Regular professional cleanings help you maintain your beautiful smile.
Dental SealantsSealants Sealants are used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. In some cases, the tooth structure has fine grooves or pits which accumulate plaque which will develop cavities over time. We apply a coating that seals the grooves and pits, making it possible to prevent decay. We recommend that all children should have sealants.

Resin CompositeBonding Bonding is performed to close spaces between your teeth, alter the alignment of your teeth, fill chipped teeth or for cosmetic purposes in order to help you achieve a stunning smile. Bonding involves adhering a composite resin material matched to the color of your tooth to the front of the tooth. A primer or bond agent is applied so the bonding material adheres to the surface. The composite resin material is placed on the tooth and hardened with a special light. Finally, the composite resin material is shaped and polished to a fabulous finish.
CrownsSometimes, pulp therapy comes in the form of a special medicament that is placed on tooth structure very close to the nerve. This allows the pulp to heal quickly. Other times, portion of the damaged or diseased pulp tissue needs to be removed and agents to prevent bacterial growth are placed. These procedures are more invasive and suggest that the health status of the pulp is poor. Often, teeth that require pulp therapy will need to have a stainless steel crown to prevent tooth fracture and re-infection. Alternative treatment for teeth that require pulp therapy is extraction (tooth removal).
