Hygiene services range from traditional “cleanings” to the treatment of periodontal disease. A diagnosis is necessary to determine the type of cleaning an individual may need. Most insurance companies will provide for dental prophylaxis (traditional cleaning) twice a year. Many will pay towards the more advanced cleanings necessary for patients with periodontal disease.
Dental sealants are a preventive measure. Placed on newly erupted adult teeth, sealants attempt to prevent damage from cavities starting on the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
Diet & Nutrition Counseling
The foods and drinks we consume dramatically affect the health of our mouth. We like to educate our patients both for themselves and their children on how to keep their diets from negatively impacting their teeth and gums.
Mouth guards are used to protect teeth from traumatic damage. That damage may occur through participation in sporting events, or through clenching and teeth grinding habits that may occur at night or during the day.
Our x-rays are a wireless comfortable option that allow us to provide excellent imaging quality with a decrease in radiation exposure to our patients.
Restorative & cosmetic
Restorations on broken, damaged or decayed teeth are done with metal free or cosmetic porcelain options whenever possible.
A crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, is generally performed to rebuild a heavily damaged tooth. Some of these teeth may have had root canal procedures. Crowns can be fabricated from different materials. Dr. Lehman will discuss with you options for a crown that may include all porcelain cosmetic choices.
Bridges replace missing teeth. They can be placed using either natural teeth or implants as support.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Dentures and partial denture impressions are performed in our office. Advancements in partial denture design allow us to use nearly invisible clasps where it may affect the smile.
Endodontic procedures (root canals) are often completed in our office. However, if the tooth requiring root canal therapy is complex it may be referred out to a specialist.
The majority of extractions required by our patients are completed in our office. Those requiring additional surgery may be referred to a specialist.
Dental Implant Restoration
Implant dentistry has allowed us to restore multiple or single teeth. They can also be used to stabilize and retain a full denture. Although implant dentistry often comes with a high price tag, for some it provides a life-changing rehabilitation.
Porcelain Veneers & Bonding
For those of our patients who want a “Hollywood” smile or only enhancement, we offer dental veneers. Veneers allow us to change the shape and shade of the teeth. Utilizing different dental materials, we have the potential to dramatically alter your smile.
Whitening & Botox Cosmetic
Whitening (dental bleaching) can be performed with a one-stop visit at our office, or in the comfort of your own home. Both systems provide a brightening addition to your oral care. The administration of Botox Cosmetic can be utilized to reduce crow’s feet, “H” lines between the eyes and forehead wrinkles.
