Most common causes of dental veneer chips

  • Accidentally biting of a fork
  • Accidentally hitting tooth with a glass or bottle
  • Biting on a non-food item (nails, tags on clothing, fishing line)
  • Nighttime tooth grinding (bruxism) or daytime clenching
  • Problems with the bite (often because veneers are too long)
  • Problems with the material or technique used in making the veneers

Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning)

A prophylaxis dental appointment provides preventive treatment to thoroughly clean the teeth. Attending your regular prophylaxis appointment will keep your mouth healthy.

Oral Cancer Screening

During our regular checkups, we perform an oral cancer screening to evaluate your mouth, tongue, and neck for lumps and other abnormalities.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Composite fillings use a tooth-colored resin to fill in cavities. As a result, fillings blend in naturally with the rest of your mouth.

Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal treatment (deep cleaning) removes tartar (buildup) from the pockets around the teeth, helping prevent bone loss and restoring healthy gums.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Being one of the most common dental procedures, we recommend this outpatient surgery when wisdom teeth may be causing pain, infection, or are expected to cause future dental issues. Extraction involves the removal of a tooth due to decay, gum disease, or trauma.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealant is applied onto the tooth enamel to protect teeth from plaque, decay, and subsequent cavities for up to ten years with normal chewing.

Sedation Dentistry

To help patients relax and rest easy during treatment, we offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide.

Tooth Extractions

A simple tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth due to decay, disease, or trauma.
