CONTEMPORARY DENTAL CARE
FOR YOUR WHOLE FAMILY
FROM SIMPLE TO COMPLEX
From young children to career executives to retirees, patients of all ages receive one-on-one care and excellent dental work in our Sioux City dental office. We understand the diverse needs of our patients. Age, nature, genetics, and personal preference play a role in your oral health. Do you want a more attractive smile? Are your dentures loose or painful? Do you have a high level of tooth decay, or are your gums always irritated? At your consultation, our doctors will sit down with you to discuss what you want and what you need. The more we understand about you, the better we can tailor your care. After a comprehensive oral health evaluation and records update, the dentist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that prioritizes oral health without compromising your schedule or budget.
AND LASTING EFFECTS
When patients choose our practice, we want their smiles to last for today, tomorrow, and throughout their lifetimes. Our doctors believe in state-of-the-art dentistry that provides maximum benefits in comfort, precise diagnoses, and esthetic dental work. Our doctors have explored innovative dental solutions and offer what they consider the best quality dental products, such as Six Month Smiles, Fast Braces, and Clear Correct. We’ll always focus on beauty, oral health, and your total satisfaction.
You don’t need wealth or fame to have a spectacular smile. Cosmetic dentistry allows our doctors to improve anyone’s appearance, conservatively, affordably, and effectively. Looking your best can improve your self-image, which in turn affects personal and professional success. As experienced restorative and cosmetic dentists, our doctors will customize a detailed treatment plan that meets your specific needs and desires.
We offer an array of cosmetic dental services. Cosmetic bonding will repair chips and close gaps, while porcelain veneers can completely transform front teeth. One of the most popular options, teeth whitening, will make your smile look youthful and bright. When patients want to go in a totally new direction, our dentists often suggest a smile makeover, which combines several cosmetic and restorative procedures.
If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. The dentist can apply putty-like composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth’s color, to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, the dentist will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, and usually lasts 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.
Transform a worn-out smile into a work of art with porcelain veneers. If chips, gaps, or stains have stolen your attractive smile, porcelain veneers will refresh and revive your appearance. Made from thin shells of porcelain, veneers can alter the size, shape, and color of your front teeth.
The process takes two to three appointments. During your consultation, you will meet with one of our doctors to discuss options. The dentist will listen to your concerns and analyze your features. A custom design will be created so that your veneers will complement your overall image. After preparing your teeth, the doctor will take impressions for the ceramist who will handcraft your veneers.
You’ll wear temporary veneers until your permanent restorations are completed. Think of this as a preview of your new smile. Final placement will occur once your permanent veneers arrive from the dental lab.
Don’t settle for stained, unattractive teeth. A smile makeover can give you a new image and a new lease on life! At your smile makeover consultation, our doctors will listen as you share your ideas and will then develop an individualized plan that addresses all of your concerns. A Smile Makeover treatment plan often includes procedures like teeth whitening, braces, or veneers.
A recent poll indicates that 80 percent of Americans ages 18 to 49 want whiter teeth. Food, beverages, tobacco, and age can steal your smile’s sparkle. Professional teeth whitening allows patients to quickly reclaim a more youthful smile – without surgery!
Safe and effective, teeth whitening penetrates stains and dramatically lightens tooth enamel. In a short time, you can look years younger and enjoy new confidence in your image. Our practice offers at-home teeth whitening kits.
For home whitening kits, we create custom-fitted bleaching trays and provide patients with a potent whitening solution. Wear the trays as directed (wear for a half hour once a day for 10 to 14 days) and you’ll see results similar to in-office systems. Once you have reached your desired whiteness, we recommend you touch up your whitening every 3-4 weeks.
As with any type of tooth whitening, you may experience mild tooth sensitivity during the whitening process. This will go away after you finish whitening.
Usually, patients rely on our at home “VIP” Whitening program to maintain a shining smile for life. Our “VIP” Whitening program has an upfront cost of only $99!! (this will save you $150 off retail pricing) Your one time $99 fee includes your custom made trays, with two tubes of bleach to get you started. And you will also receive FREE touch up gel at every six month check-up visit. (to receive your free refills you must come to your check up appointment every six months, and you must be a current patient in good standings with our office. )
If you find you need extra bleach before our six month check-up, you can purchase more for $15 per tube. Teeth whitening is offered to patients who are 18 or older.
