A professional dental cleaning and dental exams every six months is recommended in order to keep your teeth clean, your gums healthy, and your breath fresh.
Fluoride treatments help strengthen your teeth and combat against tooth decay. Most of the time, you and your children will receive enough fluoride from your diet and your drinking water; however, if Dr. Lee feels you or your child is at risk for tooth decay, he may recommend supplemental fluoride treatments.
Dental sealants do exactly what their name suggests: they “seal” off your tooth from decay. Most of the time, we place dental sealants on the back molars where plaque is hard to reach. It is recommended that children have their molars sealed as soon as they erupt.
We create custom-fitted athletic mouthguards that can be worn during sporting events. These mouthguards protect your teeth, jaw, and face from trauma that can occur during athletics.
We also create custom nightguards that help minimize the headaches and jaw pain associated with night grinding or jaw clenching.
Oral cancer is one of the most curable types of cancer when it is caught early. Dr. Lee screens for any signs of oral cancer during every routine dental exam because early detection can save your smile and your life.
As we age, the dental needs for our smile change. If you are concerned about the health or appearance of your smile, Dr. Lee can recommend a restorative treatment plan that will help you feel proud to show off your smile again.
We always practice conservative care and will do everything we can to save or repair your natural teeth. If you are suffering from tooth pain or Dr. Lee determines a tooth is decayed, he may recommend a tooth extraction.
If you are suffering from pain that feels like it is in your gums or deep in your jaw, you may have a damaged or diseased nerve. The best course of action is a root canal. Dr. Lee will carefully remove all the diseased tissue and nerve and then clean and seal the root canal. Afterwards, he will place a crown over the tooth to restore the tooth.
Both crowns and bridges are created out of porcelain materials to restore imperfect or damaged teeth and replace missing teeth.
Many people with removable dentures think that slipping, clicking, and messy adhesives are just a fact of life—think again! Dentistry has come a long way in the past few years and now modern dentures are versatile and customizable. Whether you need a partial denture, a full denture, or a reline of your existing set, we will make sure your dentures are as comfortable, natural, and affordable as possible.
A confident smile can open up a world of possibilities. Whether you’re meeting up with a new client, interviewing for a new job, or catching up with an old friend, you feel more confident and make a better first impression when you are proud of your smile. If you find yourself hiding your teeth or covering your smile because of gaps or imperfections, cosmetic dentistry may be the solution for you!
Six Month Smiles® is completely reinventing braces for adults and older teens. Gone are the years of frequent office visits for adjustments and wire changes—with Six Month Smiles, you could have a straight new smile before your next dental cleaning!
Six Month Smiles uses a combination of traditional orthodontic methods and revolutionary materials to move your teeth in an average of six months. The secret lies in the revolutionary “shape memory” arch wires, which require fewer adjustments to move your teeth to their proper positions. Six Month Smiles braces also feature clear brackets, so they’re less noticeable for the short period of time you’ll be wearing them.
A lot of things can change in six months. With Six Month Smiles, your smile could be one of them!
It’s not uncommon for teeth to lose their luster as we age, especially for us coffee drinkers and wine connoisseurs. If you’re ready to regain your bright, white smile with teeth whitening, our take-home professional whitening kits are just what you need.
Dr. Lee will create custom-fitted trays for both the top and bottom teeth and send you home with a supply of whitening gel. You simply insert the gel into the tray, and then pop the trays on your teeth. After about 30 minutes, you will notice a more vibrant smile.
Dental bonding allows patients to once again smile with confidence. This cosemtic dental treatment can be complete in just one visit.
Can you imagine what it would be like to have a smile with straight, beautifully-shaped white teeth? This is possible with porcelain veneers! Veneers are thin, tooth-colored coverings custom-made in a dental laboratory that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are often used to perfect your smile by fixing minor flaws and unevenness, as well as discolorations that cannot be solved with teeth whitening alone.
We only use composite (white) material for all of our dental filling restorations. These natural-looking fillings not only look and feel just like your other teeth, but they also last a lifetime.
Your gums are the foundation of your teeth: they hold them in place, support the roots, and even protect the underlying bone.
According to the National Institutes of Health, 8–10% of American adults currently have some degree of gum disease. The mild stage, known as gingivitis, is characterized by red, swollen gums that bleed every time you floss. If it’s caught early enough, gingivitis is completely reversible with in-office treatments and proper home care. Left undiagnosed, it can progress to periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss, infections, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
Dr. Lee can treat many cases of gingivitis and gum disease with medicated rinses and local antibiotics. The sooner we can diagnose potential problems, the quicker we can get you back on the road to good oral health.
