Now you can experience painless general dentistry and enhance your appearance while still maintaining the health of your teeth.
All dentists are trained to perform all facets of dental patient treatment! Some dentist chose not to perform certain dental services because they were time consuming, or tedious, not particularly difficult. These dental services were “referred out” for the convenience of the dentist, not the patient.
General dentistry besides being more convenient for you, is also in the best interest of your health to be treated in one dental office with one trusted practitioner responsible for all your dental care.
Referrals from our general dentist to specialty dental offices are rare, and occur when the patient’s dental anatomy or treatment is so complex that a dental specialist is required.
You deserve the best dental care. When you look and feel good, you’re experiencing the best life has to offer.

YOUR FIRST VISIT AT OUR OFFICE IS VERY IMPORTANT IN ESTABLISHING YOUR ORAL HEALTH BASELINE. WE WILL PERFORM A COMPLETE ORAL EXAMINATION WHICH INCLUDES AN ORAL CANCER SCREENING, PERIODONTAL EVALUATION, AN ANALYSIS OF YOUR BITE, AND A THOROUGH EXAMINATION OF YOUR TEETH, THEIR SUPPORTING STRUCTURES AND OF THE ORAL ANATOMY.
A CROWN IS USED TO ENTIRELY COVER OR “CAP” A DAMAGED TOOTH. WHETHER YOU HAVE A WEAK TOOTH THAT NEEDS PROTECTION OR WANT TO REPLACE AN OLD METAL RESTORATION, TOOTH-COLORED PORCELAIN CROWNS CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE. PORCELAIN OR CERAMIC CROWNS CAN BE MATCHED TO THE COLOR OF YOUR NATURAL TEETH ENHANCING YOUR SMILE. AT 212 SMILING, WE CAN OFFER AS FAST AS SAME-DAY CROWN USING CAD/CAM DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS.
MOST DENTISTS RECOMMEND HAVING YOUR TEETH PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED EVERY 6 MONTHS TO REDUCE THE LIKELIHOOD OF PERIODONTAL DISEASE PROGRESSING. WE OFFER A PROFESSIONAL TEETH CLEANING BY A CERTIFIED DENTAL HYGIENIST WHO IS AIM TO REMOVE PLAQUE, TARTAR AND STAINS THAT HAVE ACCUMULATED ON THE TEETH. EVEN WITH ROUTINE BRUSHING AND FLOSSING OF YOUR TEETH AND GUMS, TARTAR CAN STILL DEVELOP.
A BRIDGE IS A REPLACEMENT TOOTH OR TEETH THAT FILL THE SPACE WHERE ONE OR MORE TEETH ARE MISSING. IT HELPS SUPPORT YOUR LIPS AND CHEEKS. THE LOSS OF A BACK TOOTH MAY CAUSE YOUR MOUTH TO SINK AND YOUR FACE TO LOOK OLDER. MISSING TEETH CAN NOT ONLY INCREASE THE RISK OF GUM DISEASES BUT ALSO CAN CAUSE SPEECH DISORDERS AS THEY ARE USED TO MAKE MANY OF THE SOUNDS WE USE TO SPEAK CLEARLY.
GRINDING TEETH AND CLENCHING CAN CAUSE MAJOR TOOTH PROBLEMS. GRINDING CAUSES TEMPERATURE SENSITIVITY, PAIN BECAUSE THE WEAR GETS DOWN TO THE NERVE, CRACKS IN THE TEETH, RECEDING GUMS AND EVENTUALLY LOSS OF TEETH. WORN DOWN TEETH IS NOT ONLY A COSMETIC PROBLEM BUT CAN CAUSE MIGRAINE HEADACHE AND PAIN IN THE JAW, SHOULDER, NECK AND EARS. AT 212 SMILING, WE OFFER THOROUGH EXTRA AND INTRAORAL EXAMINATION WITH PROFESSIONALLY MADE,CUSTOM MOUTH GUARDS THAT FIT YOUR TEETH EXACTLY DIRECTLY FROM OUR IN-HOUSE LAB. IT COULD TAKE ONLY ONE HOUR.
