BracesWe understand that you may desire a more attractive smile. With orthodontic treatment tailored to your specific needs, your smile can become more cohesive, and your oral health improved. Perhaps you have long desired a better smile, but you feel apprehensive about treatment due to the look of traditional braces. Most people would prefer to avoid sporting a "metal mouth," and today there is a solution.
OrthodonticsOrthodontics. Maybe your teeth are healthy and white, but are not aligned evenly. Invisalign brings them into uniform position quickly. Since the aligners are crystal clear, you look great while you straighten. Our objective is to see that you find the smile of your dreams and share it with the world. We accept Medicaid, most insurance plans, and all major credit cards. Or talk to us about affordable CareCredit monthly payment plans.
Invisalign OrthodonticsAt Washington Street Dentistry, you can improve your smile and even correct certain bite issues without anyone noticing you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. By using Invisalign, we provide personalized orthodontic treatment that is both comfortable and discreet. Our patients from Indianapolis and surrounding areas like Lawrence and Anderson can straighten their teeth with Invisalign, improving oral health and increasing confidence.
Dental ImplantsOur smiles are impacted by several factors. These factors affect not only the look of the smile, but its level of health, as well. When we are young, our baby teeth are lost to make room for permanent teeth, which should last us the remainder of our lives. Just how long permanent teeth remain intact and functional is in our own hands. The dental team at Washington Street Dentistry is backed by many years of practical experience, as well as specific training in the area of preventative dentistry. With our experience, we do all that we can to help our patients avoid the pitfalls of poor oral health. In so doing, we are able to reduce the possible need for dental surgery, such as dental implants, in our Indianapolis, IN practice.
BridgesPatients are shown how to care for their dental bridge after treatment has been completed. Because the artificial tooth sits on top of the gums, flossing habits will change. Regular, proper flossing under the artificial tooth is a very important step towards controlling oral health. Failing to clean this area means that bacteria can collect beneath the bridge, weakening gum tissue and the bridge itself.
Dental BondingBonding can be used to cover permanently stained teeth, reshape teeth that are broken or chipped, or to repair spaces between natural teeth.
VeneersNumerous cosmetic dental solutions can give the smile a boost. One of them is veneers, wafer thin shells. From improving one to all the teeth that show when you smile, veneers serve multiple purposes. Washington Street Dentistry provides this cosmetic solution to patients in Indianapolis and surrounding areas.
CrownsDental crowns are quite versatile, but they are most commonly used to repair a tooth that has a large area of decay, or is cracked or broken. In that context, the crown restores appearance and functionality. It adds strength and protects the tooth from further damage. Imagine it as a tiny hard hat for a compromised tooth.
Root Canal TreatmentRoot canal therapy is a necessary, beneficial form of restorative care that many people view with great anxiety. This treatment has developed a bad reputation over the years, being the topic of horror stories. Most people assume that the procedure or its subsequent "recovery" is painful. The truth is that any pain associated with the root canal is the intense toothache that comes before treatment.
DenturesFor several decades, dentures have been a standard form of tooth replacement. These appliances are designed to replicate your natural oral structure, and are removable for daily cleaning. Depending on your unique needs, a denture may be partial, to replace some but not all teeth, or full, for total restoration.

Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic dentistry describes any procedure intended to improve the appearance of your smile. Patients in Indianapolis, IN and nearby areas quickly discover that at Washington Street Dentistry, nearly every treatment involves artistry and aesthetics.
General DentistryGeneral dentistry and oral surgery – You can trust the team at Washington Street Dentistry to care for all of your family's dental concerns over the years, such as...
Teeth CleaningPediatric dentistry – Children should begin a dental routine as early as one year old. Although primary teeth are not permanent, they require regular examination and diligent care. Children who are familiar with their surroundings and the process of teeth cleaning will be less likely to find visits to the dentist threatening or stressful. Dr. Matthew Church and his staff make dental visits fun and anxiety-free, building the foundation for lifelong oral hygiene. Annual or twice per year appointments can help a child avoid cavities or infections and ensure healthy jaw development. Services for our youngest patients can involve...
Fluoride TreatmentFluoride – This naturally occurring element stops bacterial production of acids in the mouth that eat tooth enamel. Most kids get enough fluoride from public water and fluoridated toothpaste. However, if your child might be deficient, talk with your dentist about fluoride treatments or supplements to aid in reversing low levels of decay and keeping new cavities at bay.
Dental SealantsSealants – These thin coatings of plastic are applied to grooves on back teeth to keep food particles and germs out, deterring tooth decay. We recommend sealants as soon as the permanent molars come in at about age five.
Dental ExaminationOne of the best ways to guard the health of the mouth and the body is to be mindful of gum health. During routine dental examinations, we provide a thorough assessment of gum health, watching for the earliest signs of gum disease. Because gum disease is difficult to detect in the early state of gingivitis, regular visits with your dentist are the best way to avoid the progression of this condition.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral SurgeryThe goal of dentistry has always been to preserve natural tooth structure as much as possible. For children, losing a tooth is somewhat exciting, a sort of rite of passage to being a “big kid.” Losing a tooth in adulthood is not nearly as thrilling an event. Losing a permanent tooth has consequences that, without proper tooth replacement, can affect the look and the health of the smile. Although tooth extraction through dental oral surgery in our Indianapolis, IN practice is something we make every attempt to avoid, there are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth.
Tooth ExtractionsSome patients are concerned about the recovery period after wisdom teeth extraction. By following the tips provided by your dentist, you can experience optimal healing after your procedure.
