Our Dental Services

One of the easiest ways to maintain a healthy smile is through proper brushing and flossing and regular professional maintenance. Scheduling two professional cleanings with Dr. White each year is a simple way to keep teeth free of tartar and plaque, and allows us to do a quick inspection of your teeth and gums to look for the early onset of any issues you may have.
There are many ways we can give you a youthful, attractive, natural looking smile! We can brighten your smile with our powerful whitening treatments that lighten discolorations caused by coffee, cigarettes, medication, or aging. A dazzling smile isn’t just for celebrities any more. It’s for you, because you’re worth it. Contact Dr. White’s office today to schedule a consultation and find out which treatment is best for you.
When you have a cavity, a filling is used to seal the empty space and prevent the cavity from getting larger. Fillings can be made from several materials that last for a relatively long period of time.
Composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling. They are sometimes referred to as composites or filled resins. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this may result in a smaller filling than that of older types of fillings. Composites can also be “bonded” or adhesively held in a cavity, often allowing the dentist to make a more conservative repair to the tooth
A bridge is one option that can be used to replace missing teeth. They literally “bridge the gap” between your natural tooth and those that are missing. They help you maintain equal amounts of stress on each side of your bite, and can assist in regular chewing and talking. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and are bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist. An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Depending on which type of bridge is recommended for you, its success depends on its foundation. So it’s very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong with regular exams and cleanings.
Crowns are used to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to cover a dental implant. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and the more natural looking porcelain. A consultation with Dr. White will help you decide which type of material is best for you.
The purpose of root canal treatment is to create a protective barrier to encapsulate the tissues (nerves) that surround a tooth’s root once they have degenerated. The process ensures that the tooth will maintain a healthy status despite the fact that the tooth’s nerve has undergone degenerative changes. The process of root canal treatment removes (as thoroughly as possible) bacteria, nerve tissue and organic debris left over from the breakdown of nerve tissue, as well as bacterial toxins. Once this space has been cleansed, we fill in and seal up the interior of the tooth. A majority of the time, once a tooth has undergone root canal therapy, a crown must be placed to further strengthen the tooth and protect against breakage.
Dentures are used if you’ve lost all or most of your natural teeth. With so many advances in modern dentistry fewer people need to wear full dentures. If you have older dentures or think you may need dentures, you are in luck!!! Denture technology has never been better. We can replace worn out dentures with custom made, state-of-the-art dentures that will look as natural as possible, even down to the fillings.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you’ll want replacements that are as natural and functional as possible. If dentures don’t work for you, you may consider dental implants. Unlike dentures, which can be removed, implants are permanently anchored into the jaw. Your dentist and oral surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. With implants, you get a perfect fit, and they will look and feel as good as (or better than!) your original teeth.
