Our doctors and staff are committed to providing excellent dental service that is appropriate to your situation, is reasonably affordable, and is delivered in a pain free state as much as possible. Great care and deliberation go into oral diagnosis and into your treatment plan.
Below are some of the services we offer. Please check with us for any additional available services, questions, or suggestions that you may have.
Preventive Care and Treatment
Procedures used to maintain the optimum health of the dental structure, such as prophylaxis and fluoride treatment, sealants, space maintainers, etc. Our dental hygiene program will keep your gums healthy with regularly scheduled checkups and cleanings.
We perform all aspects of general dentistry including , crown and bridge work, tooth colored fillings, extractions, dentures (partial, full or implant assisted), and root canals. We also manage gum disease with custom periodontal plans to best address your individual needs.
We do rely on a strong working relationship with select local specialists if the need arises for such intervention.
Our dental office takes pride in providing a friendly and suitable environment for the little ones in need of dental services. Dr. Leigh and her staff love working with children. We ensure that parents are completely aware and fully understand the dental treatment necessary for their children.
When a tooth is lost, the implant restoration is most like having your natural tooth. Implants are titanium posts or frames that act as artificial tooth roots for support of prostheses. Replacement teeth such as crown, bridge, or denture are placed onto the implant.
Using Computer Aided Design, perfectly fitted restorations are designed in three dimensions, and a ceramic restoration is milled from a solid block of ceramic right in the office. You can watch us design your new restoration on a full-color computer monitor right before your eyes. With CEREC®, we can restore decayed teeth, design and place crowns, replace amalgam fillings, place inlays, onlays and dental veneers in just one appointment, usually in 60 to 90 minutes. The final result is a beautiful, natural-colored tooth restoration that is much stronger than before.
Tooth discoloration is caused by aging, trauma, tetracycline, excessive fluoride, and nerve degeneration. Consumption of coffee, teas, colas, and tobacco also causes teeth to darken. Tooth whitening lightens discoloration and removes stains from unrestored teeth. Take-home tooth whitening uses a custom-fitted tray that is worn over your teeth. The custom tray is made by taking an impression of your teeth and gives optimum results. The tooth whitening gel is placed in these custom trays and fitted over the teeth.
An alternative to take-home trays, Zoom!® is an in office bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin in less than an hour.
Nothing proclaims health and success like a smile from a beautiful set of healthy teeth. Porcelain veneering of teeth will help with a multitude of cosmetic issues ranging from discoloration due to deep tetracycline staining, to irregular shaped or sized teeth, to minor crowding or spacing of teeth. Porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays are the most natural-looking restorations available today.
