All Your Dental Needs at One Place
From subtle changes to major repairs, your dentist can perform a variety of procedures to improve your smile. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. Your dentist can reshape your teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of your teeth. Common procedures include bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring.
Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. We will evaluate your progression of periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment. Periodontal disease progresses as the sulcus (pocket or space) between the tooth and gums gets filled with bacteria, plaque, and tartar causing irritation to the surrounding tissues.
When these irritants remain in the pocket, they cause infection and damage to the gums and eventually, the bone that supports the teeth. If the disease is caught in the early stages (known as Gingivitis) and no damage has been done, one to two regular cleanings may be recommended. You will also be given instructions on improving your daily oral hygiene habits and having regular dental cleanings. However, if the disease has progressed to a more advanced stage, where the infection has caused bone loss and diseased pockets have formed, your treatment options may include scaling and root planing or bone surgery
Our state-of-the-art in-office bleaching system will make your teeth whiter and brighter in one 1 hour visit.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. Symptoms of the infection are generally acute dental pain or sensitivity to hot, cold or percussion.
A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been.
To design a bridge, a dentist must reshape the teeth to make room for the crowns and then make a mold of the teeth. This mold is then sent off to a laboratory, where the actual crowns and bridge are made. With proper oral hygiene, bridges can last up to ten years. However, improper or infrequent brushing and flossing, irregular dental visits, and excessive sugar and starch intake can all bring untimely damage to the bridge.

Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. We will be happy to discuss whether Invisalign would be an appropriate treatment for you.
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. These retainers are worn 22 hours a day and are changed every two weeks. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective in treating many orthodontic cases that previously required braces.
Crowding, overbites, underbites and spacing are unsightly problems associated with beautiful oral design. At dental bright we can help diminish and eliminate these problems through correction of mouth and facial irregularities through proper alignment

The dental implant treatment involves an explanation of the dental implant placement procedure, if there is enough bone or is bone grafting needed and the type of teeth that will be placed on the dental implants after healing.
Single Tooth Dental Implant
A single tooth implant is an ideal long term solution when you have your adjacent teeth because the implant crown is not connected to any other teeth. The dental implant is placed between two natural teeth and is allowed to osseointegrate for 3-6 months depending on the dental implant site. Sometimes a bone grafting procedure is needed to help place the implant in the optimal position.
The advantages over other tooth replacements are:
- No need to grind down adjacent teeth.
- You don’t have to remove it.
- You floss and clean it like your natural teeth.
- It looks and feel like your natural teeth.
- It is a quick and relatively painless procedure.
Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth
When more than one tooth is missing, there are three common treatment options: 1) The traditional tooth supported dental bridge 2) An uncomfortable removable partial denture or 3) A dental implant supported bridge. In this situation the benefits of dental implant supported teeth are even more obvious. A removable prosthesis, such as a partial denture, actually accelerates the bone melting process, resulting in more rapid bone deterioration. In addition, the clasps which hold the partial denture in place put extreme pressure on the natural teeth they hook onto, loosening them and in many cases, eventually leading to the loss of those teeth. Most patients with partial dentures state that they are uncomfortable and that they rarely wear them.
The advantages of replacing multiple missing teeth with dental implant supported bridges include the following:
- They look feel and function like natural teeth.
- They are much more comfortable and stable than partial dentures.
- Natural biting and chewing ability is restored.
- They virtually stop the bone resorption process (deterioration).
- Facial esthetics are maintained with a youthful appearance.
- Adjacent natural teeth are not compromised (ground down to stumps or loosened).
Missing All the Teeth Full Mouth Dental Implants
In the past, people missing all of their teeth had no option but dentures. A Denture has numerous disadvantages, such as:
- Dentures are uncomfortable and often painful
- Dentures do not look natural, especially when eating
- As the bone continues to melt away, the dentures become loose, and can fall out when laughing, sneezing, or coughing without the use of adhesives
- People without their teeth and supporting bone visibly age much faster
- Wearing dentures usually undermines a person’s self confidence (they have missing body parts and do not feel complete or natural)
- People with dentures cannot eat certain foods, such as steak, corn on the cob and apples
- People with dentures generally have bad breath
These problems can be solved with dental implant supported replacement teeth, which are stable (securely fastened to the implants) and maintain the integrity of the facial structures by preserving the bone. Some of the many advantages of dental implant supported teeth include the following:
- They are more comfortable and stable than traditional dentures
- They virtually stop the bone resorption process (deterioration)
- Integrity of the facial structures is maintained
- Appearance is improved
- It is not necessary to cover the roof of the mouth, so food can be tasted
- Relines and repairs are infrequent compared to traditional dentures.
- Natural biting and chewing capacity is restored with several options that exist to replace the teeth that missing such as overdentures.
