Forms

Our Solutions

Our dental office provides comprehensive family and cosmetic dental services at our convenient Seattle location.

Stop by for a visit that will leave you with a bright, white smile on your face!

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth.

They are a very popular choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.

Whitening

Teeth whitening is a hugely popular cosmetic dentistry treatment and can be used to correct tooth discoloration.

Discolorations can be caused by stains, aging, or chemical damage to teeth.

Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful smile.

In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the best choice, but because of the cost difference, we always encourage our patients to give whitening a try!

Porcelain crowns

Crowns are used to cover a tooth and restore it to its original 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.

Invisalign

Invisalign aligners are the invisible alternative to metal braces. These clear aligners are virtually invisible as well as removable.

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom made series of aligners created for you.

These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear on top of your teeth.

Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place.

There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten, you simply pop them in.

The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.

Extractions

A tooth may need to be extracted for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired.

Other teeth may have to be removed because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (like impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

Fillings

We are a mercury-free practice. Tooth colored fillings (composites) are not only unnoticeable, they also add strength to weakened teeth.

These restorations are aesthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.

Implants

Dental implants are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing.

The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Implants can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime.

They require the same maintenance as natural teeth; this includes brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.

Nightguards

A night guard is a horseshoe shaped retainer like appliance made of hard plastic that is worn between the top and bottom teeth, which absorbs the force of the clenching and grinding to reduce joint irritation and inflammation.

A night guard also protects the teeth from wear and fracture of people that grind their teeth. There are also sports guards that protect teeth during contact sports.

Periodontal treatment

We use the latest techniques to prevent, diagnose, and treat periodontal disease (gum and bone disease). Conventional periodontal therapy, or non-surgical periodontal therapy, is performed to remove or eliminate the etiologic agents which cause inflammation such as dental plaque, and calculus, in the coronal part of the tooth as well in the root surfaces, helping to establish gums and bone that are free of disease.

Root canals

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a toot that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

Some root canals can be complicated due to the shape of the roots, calcification’s in the canals, or access.

Those cases are usually referred to a root canal specialist, known as an Endodontist.

TMJ disorders

TMJ disorders are problems or symptoms associated with the chewing muscles and joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull.

Many TMJ-related symptoms are caused by the effects of physical stress on the structures around the joint: cartilage disk at the joint, muscles of the jaw, face, and neck, nearby ligaments, blood vessels, nerves, and teeth.

Some causes for this condition include: bad bite (malocclusion), stress, teeth grinding, bad posture, lack of sleep, arthritis, fractures, dislocations, and structural defects.

Most TMJ disorders can be treated with stretching exercises, postural changes, short term use medications (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, muscle relaxants, or low-dose anti depressants), or use of a night guard.
