Expert Services StarWhite Dental is a multi-specialty practice providing every patient with the oral care services required to achieve and maintain optimal oral health and a perfect smile. We proudly offer preventive care, restoration, cosmetic dentistry, tooth extraction, and specialty care, including the following expert services:
· Preventive Care
Maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile is the best way to ensure lasting function and confidence in your appearance. Preventive care, including regular cleaning and examination, gum treatments, sealants, and even night guards, is the best way to avoid oral health concerns like cavities, gingivitis, periodontal disease, damaged teeth, and tooth loss.
By scheduling regular visits with StarWhite Dental for cleaning, examination, and x-rays, you can catch potential problems early and treat them accordingly to maintain oral health and a perfect smile. If you come to our office with gum disease, we can offer treatment options to address the condition, reverse damage, and restore oral health. We can seal teeth to reduce risks of bacterial infiltration, and we can create customized night guards to prevent damage from common conditions like bruxism (grinding).
Even with a perfect record of ongoing dental care, issues like heredity, age, diet, and accident or illness can impact your oral health. At StarWhite Dental, we are pleased to provide a range of restorative treatments, including fillings, inlays/onlays, and crowns.
Our dental professionals are adept at providing a pain-free experience with any restoration, and our options for fillings, inlays/onlays, and crowns ensure you get the natural look you want. With the CEREC machine, we’re able to conveniently fabricate porcelain crowns same-day, so that patients don’t have to wear a temporary crown and return for a follow-up visit. In a single visit, you can receive the permanent restoration you need to regain function and appearance.
· Cosmetic Dentistry
Unsightly gaps, crowding, cracks, chips, discoloration, and broken or missing teeth can severely impact the function of your mouth and your ability to smile with confidence. The skilled and experienced specialists at StarWhite Dental offer several procedures designed to correct cosmetic concerns and help you regain oral function and appearance.
We offer in-office and at-home whitening options to suit every patient seeking a brighter, whiter smile. Or you can choose Lumineers, paper-thin porcelain veneers that adhere directly to your existing smile (including crowns and bridgework) to immediately and permanently whiten your smile and cover minor imperfections like alignment issues. Tooth bonding and traditional porcelain veneers can also be used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues like discoloration, cracks, chips, and misalignment of teeth, and we offer Invisalign custom invisible aligners as an alternative to traditional orthodontic braces.
For more serious concerns like missing teeth, the specialists at StarWhite Dental can provide dental implants, which offer the form and function closest to your natural teeth. We also offer custom cosmetic dentures. Once your oral health has been restored following disease or trauma resulting in tooth loss, you can receive the restorative and cosmetic dentistry that will give you back your smile.
· Tooth Extraction
The dental professionals at StarWhite Dental understand the trauma of losing a tooth, and we’re more than ready to provide a pain-free experience and follow-up treatment that will restore your gorgeous smile. We work with you to create a plan for extraction that delivers the best results and the shortest recovery time, whether you’re removing wisdom teeth or a tooth that is no longer viable.
· Specialty Care
In addition to preventive, restorative, and cosmetic services, StarWhite Dental is pleased to offer specialty services, including halitosis treatment and sedation dentistry. There’s no need to suffer the embarrassment of intermittent or chronic bad breath, or halitosis. Our specialists can help you to pinpoint the cause and discuss treatment options that will work best for you.
Our caring staff is also ready to assist any patient suffering from dental anxiety or phobia. You are not alone in suffering from this common condition, and we offer sedation dentistry to give every patient the best opportunity to enjoy a relaxing and positive experience in our office. Your life is stressful enough. With sedation dentistry, the expert staff at StarWhite Dental can ease your anxiety and ensure satisfaction with every visit.
