The Importance of Hygiene Visits

Having your teeth cleaned on a regular basis by a professional hygienist may do more than save your teeth. Research has proven a link between advanced gum disease and life-threatening conditions of stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. Even with regular brushing and flossing, all the plaque may not be removed and eventually will harden into tartar. When tartar starts to accumulate below the gumline, a bacterial infection of the gums will begin. If it reaches an advanced stage, the infection can worsen other health conditions. Have your teeth cleaned regularly to help keep your good health!

Don’t Hide Your Smile – Remake It!

Veneers are a small miracle that corrects the problems of misshapen teeth, severe discoloration, or gaps that you thought could not be changed. They are thin porcelain coverings that are made to fit over and bond to your natural teeth. They will give you a beautiful smile that will last, as they are made from the most advanced dental ceramic.

Will You Need a Crown?

If a tooth is broken or very worn down, a filling would not be a good choice due to the extent of the tooth structure replacement. A crown would then be your best option. We use quality materials for your crown to save and strengthen your tooth. It will look so natural you won’t be able to tell it apart from a real tooth.

Teeth Whitening – Dazzling Results!

You can easily have a dazzling bright smile with a professional bleaching process. Dr. Stinson
makes custom whitening trays in his lab for a procedure that is effective and safe. We give you supplies and instructions to continue the process at home. This whitening technique usually takes about 1 – 14 days.

Missing Teeth? Why Not ‘Grow’ New Ones?

If you have been unhappy because of the appearance of missing teeth, we have a great solution for you! Dental implants are replacements that look just like real teeth as they come up through the gums. Not only do they look real, but they also function as well as natural teeth. You will be able to chew all types of food and recapture your previous smile. Implants can replace as many missing teeth as needed. They are a big help to denture wearers, as they add stability to keep dentures from moving when eating or talking and they do not have to be removed each night. We make it easy for you to obtain implants, as the complete process is handled in our office. Please contact us for a no-obligation consultation today.

Immediate Load Implants – Another Option

We are pleased to have traditional implants as well as All-on-4™ immediate load implants for our patients. These four implants permanently secure your dentures so you will no longer have to be frustrated or embarrassed from slipping or wandering dentures. You can even leave your dentures in overnight. The process is easier than you may think – in only one visit you can have the strong support of immediate load implants. Best of all, there is no waiting time for healing around the bone, as this type of implant holds up immediately to any pressure from chewing.

In the past, when a patient needed implants, they were referred to an oral surgeon. A surgeon would place the implants and then the patients would go back to the dentist for teeth to be positioned on the implants. Today, there is no longer a six-month waiting time for healing, and we can take care of the whole process in our office in just one visit.

Tired of Dentures Slipping?

If you need dentures, you can be assured we can design a set that will be very natural looking and fit so well they won’t slip. With advancements in dental technology, the denture plate can be anchored securely, so you no longer will have to worry about slipping or shifting when eating or speaking. Please ask us about this to make your life easier

Filling Choices to Fit Every Need

For years, the silver-mercury amalgam has been the standard filling material used in dental practices. They are effective, affordable, and covered by insurance in most situations. Our practice also offers modern, state-of-the-art restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth. The biggest reason many of our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with the way they look – nearly invisible, compared to the metal filling. They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth to decrease the chance of future decay. We are proud to offer both alternatives, and will be happy to discuss which option is best for you.
