What’s What: Dental Services

Do you find that there are certain types of dental services that you are already quite familiar with – and then there are those that you have heard of but you don’t really know what to make of them? For patients interested in learning about the diverse array of smile protection and improvement options they have available to them, we suggest becoming more familiar with what patients may achieve with each type of dentistry. The more you know, the more comfortable you will feel asking questions and seeking our help when you need it most.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry includes dental services that allow you to beautify your smile. This might include whitening your teeth with teeth whitening. You may wish to address minor imperfections like chips, cracks, tooth length, or gaps with bonding or contouring. Or, you may desire a smile makeover with porcelain veneers.

What Is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry addresses all of your family’s dental needs, which begins with preventive care like dental cleanings and checkups. We offer dental services customized to the needs of each patient, whether you’re an adult, teen, or child. We also offer treatment for bruxism (teeth grinding) and sleep apnea.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is just how it sounds – we will restore your oral health once it becomes compromised. Break a tooth? Develop a cavity? Our dental services will fix the problem.

What Is Laser Dentistry?

With this type of dental care, we rely on the use of specialized lasers rather than manual instruments. This is particularly helpful in cases like gum contouring because it allows us to make precise changes, while speeding up the healing process.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry gives patients the chance to enjoy relaxing dental care, rather than stressful or anxiety-ridden appointments. We offer nitrous oxide – also called laughing gas – to take the edge off of your nerves.
