Teeth cleaning, oral exam and preventive dental care
Good oral hygiene is very important and begins with an oral exam, dental cleaning and preventive care. Teeth cleaning (also known as a prophylaxis) is part of oral hygiene and involves removal of dental plaque and tartar from teeth to prevent dental cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. We offer dental care for your entire family and are often able to schedule families together. Preventive dental care helps avoid potentially serious oral health problems which can also lead to overall health problems.

Dental fillings - composite fillings, sedative fillings, and replace failing amalgam fillings
Dental fillings are used to repair a tooth which has a cavity. At our Lakewood dental office, we offer composite resin fillings which have a natural color to match your tooth. We also offer amalgam silver fillings for longevity and stability on molars. Please click here to find out more about our dental fillings services and replacing failing amalgam fillings.
A dental bridge is used to fill gap between missing teeth. We first remove any decay from your teeth and prepare your teeth to receive a crown and bridge. We take impression of your teeth to make a model of your teeth. This ensures that your bridge and crown will fit precisely in your mouth.

Crowns are used to protect and restore the natural look of your teeth. Porcelain crowns offer many advantages including being strong and durable. Crowns are used on your teeth to restore the natural shape of your teeth weakened with large fillings or root canal therapy. Please click here to find out more about our dental crown services.

Fluoride varnish is a highly concentrated form of fluoride which is applied to the surface of your teeth. This adheres to your tooth and is able to stay on your tooth surface for several hours or even days. It is applied to your tooth to remineralize the tooth surface and to treat dentin hypersensitivity. Fluoride varnish is used to help prevent tooth decay.
