BracesAffordable Braces At Summit Dental. My daughter has been with Summit Dental Center for a year now and experienced nothing but the best. I was nervous to hear that she needed braces because we don’t have dental insurance and I’ve heard they can be costly. But to my surprise her braces were affordable at Summit, not only is it a relief to know that my daughter’s teeth will be straightened out but it’s a relief on my pocket book. I know I could have probably not been able to afford the dentistry quality and braces anywhere else.

Restorative DentistryIn dentistry, crown and bridge refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. This is otherwise known as restorative dentistry. Once we have examined your teeth and has evaluated your dental and medical history, we will be ready to provide a diagnosis and treatment options.
Resin CompositeThe dentist removes the decay and fills the hole left with a filling. There are a variety of options for fillings, such as gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored plastics called composite resin filling that are healthy, safe, and durable and blend naturally with the white enamel of your own tooth.
CrownsWhen treatment is necessary, the pulp will be removed and a replacement crown made. The procedure may require multiple visits performed under anesthesia. An opening may be drilled into the tooth’s crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp removed, and the nerve canal reshaped. Then the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored enamel.
Root Canal TreatmentThough teeth are made of tough enamel on the outside, there is a chamber inside every tooth filled with soft tissue called the “pulp.” Endodontics is one of the dental specialties that treat the thin strands of this dental pulp extending through the root of the tooth that pass through nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue from beneath the tooth into the inner chamber.
DenturesWhether from disease, malnutrition or genetic disorders, sometimes it is necessary for us to extract all of a patient’s lower or upper teeth. While this can be devastating, dentures can provide a second chance at a beautiful smile.
Tooth WhiteningTooth whitening is a simple process with lasting effects used to lighten a patient’s enamel color. Food and beverages, as well as discoloration associated with aging, can be eliminated to restore and enhance your smile. Stained or discolored teeth are very common among adults of all ages, and come from a variety of sources, such as...

Teeth CleaningSPRING IS HERE! The longer daylight hours and warmer weather mean spring cleaning.... So why wouldn’t you take one hour out of your cleaning and dusting and throwing out the old and take care of one of your most important assets your teeth... HERE ARE THE TOP 3 REASONS TO GET REGULAR DENTAL CLEANINGS.
Fluoride TreatmentTalk to your dentist about your child’s fluoride needs. Sources of fluoride in addition to toothpaste include tap water, supplements and special fluoride treatments at the dentist. Check your water component to see if your local water contains fluoride. If it does, and your child drinks tap water, that should be plenty. If you choose to give your child bottled water, look for those with fluoride added.
Dental SealantsA dental sealant is an acrylic-like material that helps shield out decay-causing bacteria from the chewing surface of back teeth. We base our diagnosis and recommendation for dental sealants on the patient’s susceptibility to tooth decay and how the teeth were shaped when they originally formed below the gum. Though there is no specific age at which sealants are indicated, often we will recommend that the best time to apply them is when the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear.
X-raysDental x-rays in their early stages of decay. By the time a child has mouth pain associated with these types of cavities, the teeth require more extensive treatment or even removal. Another problem our Pediatric Dentist see’s is gum disease. About 40% of children two to three years old have at least mild inflammation of gum tissues. Oral habits such as thumb-sucking should also be checked. Other oral diseases such as canker sores can be treated before they become advanced and cause unnecessary pain for your child. The earlier the dental visit, the better the chances of preventing problems. Strong, healthy teeth help your Child’s mouth develop properly, chew food easily, speak clearly and feel good about their appearance and especially their smile.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral SurgeryThrobbing oral pain, odd discoloration of the tooth and surrounding area, or extreme sensitivity to hot or cold fluid could be serious indications of oral trauma that may require root canal therapy. Relax. You are probably in enough discomfort already. Our dentists here in Houston, will provide you with the treatment you need to assure that these infections could even spread to the jawbone and rot the cavity that holds the tooth in position requiring oral surgery.
Jaw SurgeryOral Surgery Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery providing procedures such as wisdom teeth removal, dental implants and jaw surgery.
Tooth ExtractionsA dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
