White Tooth Fillings:
The latest dental materials and techniques allow for beautiful, long-lasting fillings. Dr. Shimizu uses composite and porcelain to restore teeth to their natural color and strength.
Porcelain Dental Crowns:
Teeth that have been fractured or chipped are susceptible to further damage. Dental crowns are used to restore both front and back teeth that have been broken or are at high risk of doing so. We use the latest materials to restore teeth to their natural strength, look, and feel.
Porcelain Dental Veneers:
Porcelain Dental Veneers are a thin covering of porcelain used to enhance the appearance and function of teeth. This is one of the most exciting and rewarding techniques in dentistry today. We are able to produce brilliant smiles by whitening teeth, closing spaces, and by straightening rotated teeth. You can achieve the smile of your dreams in two visits.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most gratifying techniques available today. We treat our patients with in-office whitening and take-home kits depending on the current status of the teeth and desired outcome. The in-office procedure is safe and produces immediate results.
Teeth Cleaning & Exam:
Dental health begins with healthy gums and establishing good hygiene habits. We customize your treatment to ensure specific periodontal (gums and bone) needs are met. Our highly trained dental hygienists provide the best treatment while making sure you understand how to take care of your teeth at home. Non-surgical periodontal treatment is often possible.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Implant dentistry works by mimicking the structure of natural teeth and like natural teeth, dental implants are secured in the jawbone. Successful dental implants become firmly embedded in the jaw, providing a chewing surface like that of natural teeth. Implants can replace one tooth or multiple teeth depending on the circumstance. Please ask Dr. Shimizu about this exciting procedure.
A dental bridge is utilized to replace one or more missing teeth. Teeth on both sides of a space are used to anchor the bridge in order to restore function and esthetics.
Dentures & Partials:
If you have several missing teeth, a complete or partial denture may be necessary. We take the time to help patients regain chewing function and a healthy looking smile.
Conscious Sedation & Relaxation:
Your comfort is extremely important to us and we take special care to make your dental experience a pleasant one. We offer a number of relaxation solutions including Nitrous oxide, conscious sedation which uses prescription medication, and you can listen to music while your teeth are being restored.
