With today's high esthetic standards, tooth-colored fillings have become the standard of care. These modern resin restorations blend right in with the natural color of your teeth. The flexibility of these materials means less drilling is required which allows for more preservation of tooth structure. Keep your pearly whites white!
Crown and Bridge
Crowns and bridges are a fixed solution for the repair of damaged or missing teeth. Crowns are used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Bridges are used to fill in missing teeth. Materials chosen, such as ceramic or gold, are based on function, location of missing teeth, esthetics, and patient wants.
The next best thing to a natural tooth is a crown supported by a dental implant. An implant is a titanium post that acts like a tooth root and is surgically positioned into the jaw bone by an oral surgeon. This allows for a replacement tooth to be mounted into this area via a screw or resin cement. Implant crowns can be fabricated from ceramic or precious metals, with ceramic being the most esthetic.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. This can be caused by deep decay, repeated dental procedures, or a cracked tooth. No need to worry if you need this procedure, it is Dr. Nick's fave! The patient experience is similar to a routine filling, though admittedly longer. The biggest advantage to this procedure is being able to save your natural tooth.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partials are removable appliances that replace some or all of your missing teeth and help restore your smile. Dentures can improve the quality of life by helping you enjoy more foods, improving your speech, and enhancing your appearance. Whether you lost your teeth due to gum disease, tooth decay, or tooth injury, we can help boost your confidence with a natural looking smile.

Botox for Cosmetics
Botox is used cosmetically to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin used in these injections is inactive and non-toxic. Botox is most often used to treat forehead lines, crow's feet, frown lines, and lip lines. Getting botox only takes a few minutes and doesn't require anesthesia. It is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. Results can be seen 2-10 days following injection and last between 3-4 months depending on the patient. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. Lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax. The most common side effect is temporary bruising. Botox does not make you look like a different person, it makes you look like a better version of yourself. So what are you waiting for?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth wrinkles, enhance facial contours, or plump thin lips. Fillers used in our office contain hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. Filler is delivered using either a needle or cannula depending on the area being treated. To minimize discomfort, fillers can be placed using topical or local anesthetic depending on patient preference. Profound anesthesia can be achieved with routine dental injections, making the dental office an ideal place to receive these treatments. HA filler results are temporary, lasting 6-18 months, depending on area injected and type of filler used. The most common side effects include but are not limited to bruising and swelling. This procedure should be done at least 2 weeks before a major event giving adequate time for the body to heal in case complications do occur. Dermal fillers can help you look and feel your very best. If you are ready to "Juvederm It!" call our office to set up a free consultation.
