Teeth will naturally lose their brightness over time. Drinking coffee or tea, or using tobacco, as well as certain childhood medications can cause teeth to discolor or darken even faster than normal. Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth. We can provide at-home whiteners to help you achieve a whiter smile.

Dental sealants are made of a safe resin material which is applied to the surfaces of teeth (commonly permanent molars) to prevent cavities.

Fillings and Bonding
Cavities (tooth decay) can be the result of a variety of factors. Unfortunately, they don’t heal themselves or go away over time. They usually only get worse with time unless treated by a dentist. A dental filling repairs the damage that has already been done to a tooth. In other cases, tooth-colored filling material can be bonded to a tooth allowing cosmetic dental applications (cosmetic bonding).

Dr. Tyler, as a restorative specialist (prosthodontist), is committed to saving teeth whenever possible. Through root canals and crowns, teeth can be saved that you may think can only be removed. Consult Dr. Tyler before having any teeth removed. When a tooth is deemed non-restorable, dental extraction is necessary.

Bone grafting (socket preservation) can provide a framework for maintenance of the blood clot in a socket and aids in the healing process after an extraction. Bone loss occurs in and around the socket after a tooth is removed. Therefore, if replacement of the tooth with a dental implant is desired, then preserving the bone is often indicated.

Root canals are most often necessary when decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has become infected. Soon after the root canal is performed, the tooth is restored with a dental crown or filling to protect the tooth and restore normal tooth function.

Invisalign® and Retainers
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life.
An orthodontic retainer is given to a patient after treatment to keep the teeth from returning to their prior position or simply to prevent them from shifting.
