Bleaching - Teeth
Whitening is one of
the simplest and least expensive techniques and it can give you a
brilliant smile youíll be proud of. Our custom made whitening kits to
use at home are comfortable, easy to use, and deliver a great result.
For those who want a faster start, we offer Zoom whitening, the in-
office process that whitens your teeth in about an hour. For teeth with
dark stubborn stains we offer Deep Bleaching which is a combination of
both in-office and at-home techniques.
Porcelain veneers are
top line in cosmetic dentistry.
If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, porcelain
veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your
teeth. A porcelain veneer is a covering over the tooth that
gives natural color and bridges small gaps. Veneers can be a
great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and
provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time. The results are simply gorgeous!
Dental bonding can
produce amazing improvements by fixing chips in your teeth.
Bonding is covering the front surface of teeth with durable
plastic to either change the tooth's color or shape, or the
rebuild broken teeth. Bonding is similar to veneers, but not as
strong, but it is a low-cost way to improve your smile. Bonding
is great for children who have chipped front teeth and for
adults who need an alternative for veneers and understand the
Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth.
The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may
have seen next to the gumline on older crowns.
Even if you have lost
your teeth we can help you get the smile you want with our beautiful
custom designed dentures. Dental manufacturers are now making denture
teeth in modern white shades. While we wish no one would
ever need dentures, sometimes they are the most reasonable option. In the past
wearing dentures was the only form of dentistry available to improve a personís
smile. When they are indicated we take the time necessary to create attractive,
well fitting dentures. They canít beat a set of your own teeth when they are
healthy and straight, but when natural teeth canít be restored dentures look
great and chew well.
If a person has lost too much of their
jawbone to steady their dentures, implants can be placed. The dentures are
attached to the implants to hold them firmly in place. If you have this problem,
call us for a consultation appointment.
Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used
in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back
teeth. This approach has become very popular because silver
(mercury) fillings are not safe and are less attractive.
Implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. They have many advantages, including their
natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience.
If you are considering implants, we can discuss the
considerations and help you make the decision that is right for
Keeping Your Mouth Healthy
Dr. Lane and his team
can help you keep your mouth healthy and feeling great.
Our hygienists are
great. They are both thorough and gentle. They can help you create a
custom preventive maintenance routine to keep healthy. If you have gum
problems, we offer both non-surgical and surgical gum therapies.
Many people damage
their teeth or give themselves headaches by grinding or clenching their
teeth during their sleep. We offer the
NTI device to control clenching
and grinding. It is also FDA approved for treating migraine headaches.
Some people develop jaw joint ( TMJ )pain. We offer nightguard type
splints to help with this.
Cavity prevention and
We use a laser cavity
scanner called the
Diagnodent along with dental xrays to detect cavities
when they are small. The dental pick misses about 74% of these common
cavities. Finding them when they are small allows you to have them fixed
with the least amount of trouble or pain. We also offer adult fluoride
treatments with your cleaning appointments. We have found this to be the
best way to prevent cavities that form on the root surface that gets
exposed if you have some gum recession. The root surface is about 700
times softer and more vulnerable to cavities than the toothís enamel.
These type cavities are becoming common because through our other
preventive measures people are able to keep their teeth through their
lifetime and gum recession is common as we age.
Our office is OSHA compliant, and follows the same OSHA
sterilization recommendations for hospitals.
