We offer composite fillings, veneers, and ceramic crowns, metal free for a beautiful smile.
Dental veneers are thin layer of material, usually porcelain, covering the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length after minimally preparing the surface of the teeth being treated.
Small restorations are best treated conservatively with composite (tooth colored) fillings. No silver (amalgam) fillings are done in our office. Large restorations are ceramic inlays, onlays or crowns, which match to your natural teeth appearance.
When extensive tooth decay or damage occur, a dental crown can restore function, beauty, and form to a structurally unsound tooth. The types of dental crowns range from porcelain crowns to porcelain fused to metal crowns to gold crowns. Most often, our image conscious patients choose all porcelain/ceramic crowns to maintain a gorgeous smile while restoring optimal function and strength.
Complete denture is a removable prosthetic device. It is a convenient way to replace all your missing teeth.

Every tooth extraction is different. Some are simple and some are more extensive procedures, possible surgical extractions. Surgical extraction is required whenever the tooth extraction becomes difficult. Conditions that warrant surgical removal would include cracked teeth, impacted teeth, severely decayed teeth, or any condition that makes the extraction a bit difficult. Third molars known as wisdom teeth can become painful, difficult to clean and in most people are not necessary to hold on to. Extractions are done by qualified, experienced doctors who will try to provide the least traumatic experience possible.
A dental implant is a small "anchor" made of titanium. It is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. When surrounding bone has attached to the implant, a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant. The new tooth looks, feels, and performs just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations, replacing a single missing tooth or many teeth. They can even be used to replace a full denture as anchor points, implants can also securely attach a partial denture or bridge.
We love kids! Parents are encouraged to bring your child after his/her first birthday.
Oral health is important for a child's growth and development, overall health and wellbeing, and self-esteem. Tooth decay and bleeding gums can lead to pain, infection, malnutrition, poor growth, and premature loss of teeth -- which can affect the development of permanent teeth. Good oral health habits -- started at an early age at home -- increase the chance for a healthy mouth during your child's young life and carry on through adulthood.
Our office has two Registered Dental Hygienists who attain to the regulations of the Washington State Board of Dental Examiners, including CPR and consistent continuing education seminars.
An estimated 80 percent of American adults currently have some form of the disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
Gum disease is a threat to your oral health. Research is also pointing to possible health effects of periodontal diseases that go well beyond your mouth. Whether it is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.
We are here to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Nitrous Oxide or oral sedation are available to make you relaxed and awake.
There are 3 types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central and mixed. Out of the three types, obstructive is the most common. While each type has differences, they do share one common trait: sleep apnea causes people to stop breathing throughout the night. These breathing interruptions can last for a minute and lead to a poor quality of sleep. Sleep apnea, if untreated, can lead to heart attacks, stroke, cancer. It is treated either with CPAP device, oral device, or surgery.
