Diverse Care for Your Every Need

Routine Dental Cleaning

Generally, patients should receive a dental cleaning and routine exam every six months, or as recommended by Steve Peters and his staff. During the cleaning, we will remove any plaque or bacteria from your teeth and leave behind a bright and polished smile. While we perform thorough care, an occasional diagnostic radiograph (x-ray) needs to be taken to help detect possible cavities in between teeth that cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Endodontic Therapy (Root Canals)

When a cavity has reached the pulp of a tooth, causing an infection of the nerve, or when severe trauma has affected the tooth, endodontic therapy (a root canal) is necessary. Once the pulp has become infected, it must be treated to avoid further issues since it cannot heal by itself. When endodontic therapy is performed, Steve Peters and his staff will clean out the infected pulp and disinfect the canals of the tooth. Once the area is disinfected, the canals of the tooth will be filled with a special material to prevent from further infections and help the tooth to heal. Regular checkups with Steve Peters and his staff help to avoid and prevent the need for endodontic therapy.

Cosmetic Restorations (White Bonded Fillings)

If you’re unhappy with the unsightliness of old, silver fillings that were used to fill your teeth years ago, come to Steve Peters and his staff. We’ll use tooth-colored fillings, which will result in a natural smile you can be proud of. White fillings are bonded to the natural tooth structure, which increases the overall strength of the tooth, unlike silver (amalgam) fillings that have no bonding properties.

Crowns (Caps)

Crowns are required when a tooth is severely damaged and cannot be fixed with bonded filling material. Crowns cover the whole remaining tooth and restore its function, strength and esthetics. Steve Peters and his staff will discuss what crown material options are available and what area of your mouth needs restoration.

Bridges

Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay or injury. The loss of the tooth can create greater problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move and result in pain, discomfort, and an unsightly appearance. With bridges, Steve Peters and his staff will close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge will look and act just like a natural tooth, which is permanently cemented, and help to maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.

Dental Implants

If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the perfect solution for you. It is important to replace missing teeth, because if left with spaces, your teeth can shift and cause a variety of dental problems. Dental implants are natural-looking and are permanently anchored into the patient’s jawbone. Steve Peters and his team have extensive experience in treatment planning and designing implant solutions that are custom tailored for each individual patient. When your dental implants are placed, your jaw will bond and attach to the implant, making them very strong and functional. Implants can also be used to help secure and stabilize full dentures with special attachments. To see if you’re a candidate for dental implants, call us today at 360-427-1784 and make an appointment!

Dentures and Partial Dentures

Through the years, new advancements have allowed dentures to be more comfortable than ever. Partial dentures are used when a patient still has some natural teeth. Filling in any missing gaps with partial dentures prevents your remaining teeth from shifting.

Complete dentures are used when all natural teeth are missing. Regular visits to the dentist are still necessary, so we can keep your natural teeth in good shape.
