Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers, often alternatively termed dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain which are bonded onto the front side of teeth so to make a cosmetic improvement in their appearance. Porcelain veneers are routinely used to idealize teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned.

Ceramic Crowns

Long lasting, beautiful restorations that can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth. Our crowns are custom made for you using porcelain to match your natural teeth.

 

Bridges

If a tooth cannot be saved or has already been lost a fixed bridge may be the next best thing. Everyone was meant to have their teeth for a lifetime. If a tooth is lost, and not replaced, the other teeth will start to move, the area will be harder to clean, and your whole mouth will be affected.

Our bridges are custom made and very natural looking. Bridges are permanently cemented in and rely on adjacent teeth to hold crowns which support the bridge. Much like crowns, bridges come in a variety of materials which will be matched with your needs to come up with the best solution for you.

Dental Implants

Implants are a way of replacing single or multiple teeth without utilizing adjacent teeth. Implants are titanium screws which are impregnated with bone regeneration. Which are placed in the area where your missing tooth’s root used to be. This implant is then to integrate or fuse to your bone. A crown/crowns are then placed on top of the implant/implants.

Implants can also attach to dentures to help those with little bone levels, keeping their dentures from "floating around", and can drastically improve quality of life in seniors.

In certain circumstances when not enough bone is present, bone grafting is performed to enhance the thickness of bone. Bone material is packed at the donor site and covered with a membrane, and allowed to grow with your body to allow future implant placement.

Endodontics

When a cavity (decay) has reached the sensitive part of your tooth (the pulp), we can comfortably remove the infected tissue and replace it with a plastic filling material. This material is injected down in the root and prevents future infection. These teeth then can be restored with a tooth colored filling or crown depending on how much tooth structure is remaining.

Six-Month Smiles

This new advance in adult orthodontics allows clear brackets and wires to straighten teeth in as little as six months.

Same-Day Crowns

This latest advance allows a computer scan to mill out a ceramic crown. This eliminates the need for those unpleasant impressions, or having to wear temporary crowns. These crowns are made from E-Max ceramic blocks and produce crowns that are up to 20 times stronger than porcelain fused to metal crowns.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Today’s dentistry includes composite (tooth colored fillings), which replace the old silver amalgam. These fillings are now bonded to your teeth, and match your tooth’s natural shape and color. These restorations are limited by the amount of tooth structure missing. When over half of your tooth is lost to decay or fracture, an inlay or crown is needed.

Crowns & Onlays

When too much of the tooth has been lost for a composite restoration (filling), a crown or onlay may be needed. After the decay and or old filling is removed if over half of your tooth structure has been lost, material called Core is placed in the center of your tooth and we remove tooth structure 360 degrees around build up, which allows the crown to use your entire circumference of tooth to create a long lasting restoration.

Crowns can be all ceramic (porcelain), metal on the bottom and porcelain on the top, or all metal. Which one we use depends not only on your cosmetic demands, but on such factors as your bite and certain habits (bruxism). Together my staff and I will help you decide which is best for you.

KOR Deep Bleaching

The latest and most effective whitening treatment available. This whitening system is the only recognized system that whitens even tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time (previously thought to be impossible). KöR Whitening results are typically achieved with little to no sensitivity.

Gentle Cleanings with Complete Exams

We strive to give our patients complete oral health. In order to do this, in many cases, full mouth xrays and a comprehensive exam are required to fully diagnose all the problem areas and offer several different treatment options.

Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film), and calculus (tartar) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. The dental hygienist uses specialized instruments to gently remove these deposits without harming the teeth.

Recall Visits

We hope you share our belief that regular preventive dental health care is a sound investment. While the responsibility for returning to our office for this preventative treatment rests primarily with you, we would like to help by scheduling your next recall appointment when you are here for your initial appointment.

You will receive a confirmation call one week prior to your scheduled appointment time.

Anesthetic

We cater to cowards, Dr. Lister uses the latest anesthetic to provide painless dentistry. We have several different methods to allow all of our patients to experience profound numbness.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Dr. Lister uses digital dental X-Rays to provide even better dental care and more accurate diagnoses.
The process of digitally capturing an image is much faster, safer and more comfortable for the patient.
