Dental cleanings are the best way to prevent any control any damage done to teeth over time. In most cases, two cleanings are done per year, in six month intervals, but the hygienists and dentists will decide the most suitable schedule for patients needs. The surfaces of the teeth are cleaned, instructions are given on how to best take care of the mouth and teeth, and treatment is diagnosed and discussed.
Fillings – Crowns - Bridges - Partials and Dentures: Fillings art utilized when tooth decay is present but the structure of the tooth is still intact. Any decay will be removed and a composite will be added into the tooth. Crowns – A “cap” placed over a tooth when a tooth has significant damage or fracture. Bridges – Gaps from missing teeth can result in shifting of the current teeth. When multiple teeth are missing or extracted, bridges are usually recommended. Partials, Dentures – Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-like base.
We offer various, safe ways to bleach teeth to help eliminate the appearance of surface stains. ZOOM treatment and bleaching trays that are made in-office are the most popular forms of dental professional whitening. Internal bleaching of single teeth is sometimes done if surface bleaching is not effective. We provide take-home bleach so that patients can continue to keep their teeth their whitest. We also offer Invisalign braces - clear aligner trays that are worn over teeth that gradually shift teeth into place to create an atheistic appeal and a healthy bite. Dr. Kennedy will determine if this is the best fit for your dental needs.
