With our team based approach our Doctors and staff are equipped with the latest technologies and advances in dental treatment to provide patients of all ages with the care and comfort you and your family deserve.

At Bright Young Smiles our focus is a healthy and radiant smile you can be proud of. Preventative dental care is our primary goal and our conservative approach to dental care is something our patients can be confident in. After discussing your dental needs and conducting a full exam, our specialists will provide you with the most appropriate treatment options available. The following are just some of the services we provide:


Digital X-ray Imaging

Digital radiography systems reduce radiation exposure to patients by up to 80 % compared to film-based systems. Digital radiography conforms to the very important ALARA principle: As Low As Reasonably Achievable. This is a radiation safety principle for minimizing radiation exposure to both patient and operator by employing all reasonable means possible. ALARA mandates that every possible method of reducing exposure to radiation should be used to minimize risk for the patient and operator alike.

X-rays can show the condition of your teeth, their roots, jaw placement and the overall composition of your facial bones. X-rays can help your dentist determine the presence or degree of periodontal (gum) disease, cavities, abscesses and many abnormal growths, such as cysts and tumors. X-rays also can show the exact location of impacted teeth and teeth that have not yet fully developed. Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage can save time, money and unnecessary discomfort. If you have a hidden tumor, x-rays may even help save your life.

Routine Dental Cleanings and Periodontal (gum) Care

Regular dental cleanings, performed by a registered dental hygienist, are a crucial part of preventive dental care. By removing plaque and tartar, your oral health is enhanced and your risk of gingivitis and periodontal disease are reduced. Your dental hygienist will utilize manual instruments to remove moderate plaque and tartar buildup, or an ultrasonic device to scale away heavier buildup. The cleaning is finished with polishing, a pleasant procedure that cleans the surface of teeth, removes stains, and leaves the mouth feeling clean and refreshed. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends that individuals have a dental cleaning performed every 6 months combined with daily brushing and flossing at home.

Dental Cosmetic Bondings

Dental Bondings are an excellent cosmetic solution to a number of problems and can be considered by you and your dentist for some of the following conditions;

  • To repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede

Tooth Colored Fillings

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

Preventative Sealants

Dental sealants can protect your children from cavities. Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to act as a barrier between the tooth and harmful bacteria. They are most effective when applied to decay-susceptible biting surfaces as soon as the teeth come in. Here’s how sealants work: The sealing material is applied to the tooth surface using an “etching” fluid. The sealant partially penetrates the tooth enamel, ensuring that it is firmly attached to the tooth. Once applied, the sealant fills in the tooth’s grooves, hardens and creates a thin plastic barrier that keeps cavity-causing bacteria out of the pits and fissures.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment is necessary when the nerve of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected often causing pain, swelling or discomfort. This treatment involves your dentist cleaning the tooth to remove the infection and ultimately eliminating any current or future pain or need for the tooth to be removed. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!

If you continue to care for your teeth and gums, your restored tooth could last a lifetime. With the latest advances in technology many of our patients describe a root canal as a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort.

Ceramic/Porcelain Crowns (metal free)

Crowns are a very esthetic solution that cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak teeth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to cover a dental implants.

Veneers

Veneers are the ultimate cosmetic option to give you the type of smile you’ve always dreamed about.Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. Veneers are also a great option for closing spaces between teeth and are the most natural and cosmetic way to improve your smile often requiring little to no alteration of your existing tooth structure.

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants are a replacement option for single or multiple missing teeth.

While there are many restorative options available for missing teeth, dental implants are the preferred treatment method of dentists due to their functionality, durability and high success rate (dental implants boast a success rate of 90 to 95 percent). Not only are they stronger than other tooth-replacement options, dental implants also offer increased stability, a better ability to chew and an improved ability to taste food.

Same Day Dentistry

At Bright Young Smiles we value your time and know that the inconvenience of returning for multiple visits to have a procedure done can be difficult. That is why we often are able to provide you the service of completing any dental procedures you may need on the same day of your cleaning if desired. This allows you to keep your mouth in top shape without interfering with your busy schedule.

Teeth Whitening

Bleaching your teeth can be an incredibly safe and effective way to to immediately improve the appearance of stained or discolored teeth that are otherwise healthy. Drinking of coffee, tea soft drinks and red wine is something many people enjoy but it often comes with the result of stained teeth and a less attractive smile. At our office we provide multiple options for whitening using the best brands on the market. We’d love to discuss whether you are a candidate for this procedure, so ask us today!

Night Guards

If you or someone you know experiences severe tooth, jaw or facial muscle pain, it may be from the effects of grinding or clenching your teeth. The good news is we can prescribe you a Bite Splint often known as a “Night Guard”, which offsets the pain caused by bruxing or grinding your teeth.

A nightguard is a proactive step to protect your existing healthy teeth. A clear, thin removable device, your custom-made bite splint is worn over your lower or upper teeth as you sleep.

Studies suggest those who grind and clench their teeth may experience up to 80 times the normal tooth wear per day compared to those who do not. The good news is that a simple bite splint can offset the effects of this often-subconscious habit while protecting your teeth from daily wear and tear.

Athletic Mouth Guards

We all know that playing sports caries its risks, one of which being tooth injury and loss. At Bright Young Smiles we provide Athletic Guards customized to fit your mouth, statistics show that when worn properly, a protective mouthpiece decreases the risk of oral injury by 99 percent.

Orthodontic Appliances

We offer a variety of appliances that enable us to correct problems with your child’s bite or tooth alignment at the early stage. If provided early enough, they may decrease the time or prevent altogether the need for braces in the future.
