We believe that good dentistry should come with value. Dr. Martin, Dr. Peng, and Dr. Parson provide value in our services in many ways, one of which is by using metal-free dentistry whenever possible. Contemporary restorative dentistry, like fillings and crowns, should return optimal oral health and beauty. With white fillings and crowns, your restored smile will look natural and attractive.
The best way to avoid needing fillings, crowns, root canals, and periodontal therapy is by attending regular checkups and cleanings. At a checkup, the dentist will evaluate every tooth in your mouth looking for signs of damage, decay, and faulty dental work. We’ll assess your occlusion (how upper and lower teeth fit together), screen for gum disease and oral cancer, and take digital X-rays if necessary. The hygienist will clean your teeth and answer your questions about brushing, flossing, and caring for your teeth at home. Preventive dentistry also includes nightguards to end grinding and clenching, a condition known as bruxism that can cause significant tooth wear and lead to TMJ pain.
Our dentists also provide oral surgery, orthodontics, TMJ therapy, and many general dentistry procedures to ensure optimal oral health, comfort, and function. Learn about some of our general and restorative dentistry procedures here:
