Traditional metal fillings are often composed of mercury, which can create a black or grey appearance.For this reason, at teeth and gums we use only composite, or tooth-colored fillings. White fillings are also virtually undetectable which makes your smile healthy and beautiful at the same time.

Regular care for children is extremely important for setting a great foundation for a lifetime of good oral hygiene and a healthy smile. At teeth and gums, we provide dental care for the entire family, including infants, children and adolescents. As a pediatric dentist, Our Doctors are experienced in providing dental care for infants and children and strives to make these special patients feel comfortable during their examinations and treatments. Your child should have his or her first dental appointment after the first tooth appears and before his or her first birthday. While children do lose their “baby” teeth, or primary teeth, these teeth are instrumental in helping children speak and chew properly. Additionally, these primary teeth create a path for their permanent adult teeth to follow when they erupt. Dental check-ups are also important opportunities to create a good foundation for ongoing oral hygiene and give parents the chance to ask any questions they have about a child’s oral health.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that our doctor can use to cover stains or mask flaws such as cracked, broken, or misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics” because they can also be applied to straighten the appearance of a crooked smile.
We at teeth and gums believe that each of our patients deserve a smile they can be proud to show off. We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions to correct such common aesthetic flaws as stained teeth, broken teeth, or teeth that are chipped, cracked, misshapen, or crooked.
By applying a thin coating of a tooth-colored resin composite material to teeth, we can improve the appearance of a number of cosmetic flaws. In many cases, cosmetic bonding is more affordable and just as effective as porcelain veneers, though results will not last as long.
When a person’s gums extend too far onto the tooth surface, he or she is said to have a “gummy” smile. We at Teeth and Gums gently sculpt the gum line into a more pleasing proportion, making teeth appear larger and the smile more brilliant.
When a tooth has been damaged by a cavity, the doctor will most likely perform a root canal to remove the infected tooth pulp. To restore functionality and appearance, and to seal the tooth from further damage, a dental crown will then be placed over the entire tooth surface.
This is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth .Advanced ceramics can create full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. Their main advantage is superior aesthetics …looks like the natural tooth itself.
If a patient is missing one or more teeth but is not necessarily a good candidate for dentures or dental implants, he or she may be fitted with a dental bridge. A bridge is an artificial tooth that is held in place by a dental crown on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth.
At Teeth and Gums, we offer both full and partial dentures to our patients. Unlike dental bridges or dental implants, dentures are removable replacement teeth. Our doctors use the most modern materials and methods to create our patients’ dentures, so they can always be assured of a comfortable fit and the most realistic appearance.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into a patient’s jawbone to support permanent replacement teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants never need to be removed for cleaning, and they allow for more comfortable eating and speaking.
We combine a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve the ultimate in smile design. For example, a patient may choose to eliminate the “gummy” appearance of his or her smile with gum recontouring, and then enhance the results with a tooth whitening session. To learn more about the smile makeover or smile design opportunities available to our patients, we encourage you to make an appointment for consultation.

The initial stage of treatment for periodontal disease OR A GUM DISEASE is usually a thorough teeth cleaning that may include scaling or root planing. The objective of these non-surgical procedures is to remove etiologic agents such as dental plaque and tartar, or calculus, which cause gingival inflammation and disease. Scaling and root planing can be used as a stand-alone treatment, or a preventative measure. They are commonly preformed on cases of gingivitis and moderate to severe periodontal disease.
Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.To avoid these complications, in most cases,Our Doctor will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
