General Dentistry

General Dentistry categorizes treatments that address dental and oral health. The goal of these treatments is to keep the smile as healthy as possible. This is achieved by the prevention of cavities and gum disease. For this reason, General Dentistry is also referred to as Preventative Dentistry. The team at Willow Creek Dental is experienced in working with a wide range of patients. They can adjust treatments and services to meet your needs at any stage of life.

Teeth Cleanings

Depending on the state of their Oral health, patients are encouraged to schedule an exam at least twice a year for cleanings. During a cleaning a hygienist will gently remove any plaque from the tooth surfaces. The tools used by a hygienist provide a much deeper clean than what is achieved with regular brushing and flossing. You will also be checked for signs of developing cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. Dental health issues that are caught early have the highest chance of treatment success.

Recommendations are provided on how you can improve your at-home dental hygiene routine. Taking care of your teeth and gums at home is the best way to keep your smile healthy for years to come!

Periodontal Care

Did you know gum health is just as important as tooth health? Plaque and bacteria collection beneath the gums can cause gingivitis. When left untreated, gingivitis can turn into periodontitis. Unfortunately, this condition is often accompanied by tooth loss. Scaling and root planing is performed to prevent periodontitis. Any plaque and tartar is removed from beneath the gums and smoothed out. This allows the gums can adhere properly, and seal out further bacteria.

Even if your smile is healthy, you may find that you just don’t love its appearance. Maybe your teeth aren’t white enough, or you have a distracting chip in your tooth.

You will leave with the picture-perfect grin you have been dreaming of!

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular choice for improving the appearance of your smile. Dr. Gordon uses a tray whitening system to remove surface stains and whiten the teeth by several shades. After creating an impression of your smile, you are provided with customized trays and bleaching gel. You fill the trays with the gel and apply them to the top and bottom teeth. 20 to 30 minutes is all that is necessary over the course of a week to brighten your smile.

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom created to alter the appearance of your teeth. Dr. Gordon and his team work to determine how veneers will best serve you. Do you want to whiten your teeth? Are you looking to disguise a chip, gap, or crack in a tooth? After a treatment plan is made and agreed on, the veneers are created in a laboratory. The veneers are bonded right onto the front of your teeth, completely transforming your smile.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry refers to the treatments designed to restore strength, function, stability, and appearance to your smile. These treatments are needed when the smile has been damaged, such as by tooth decay, trauma, or periodontitis. Restorative services also help prevent further damage from occurring.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanent, long-term tooth replacements. The implant is a titanium screw that is inserted into the gums using Galileo’s 3D imaging. The implant functions as the root of the new tooth. After a healing period of three to six months the implant will integrate itself with the jaw bone. This provides a stable foundation for the implant to be restored with a crown. The crown is attached to the dental implant and allows it to look and function like a real tooth.

Dental implants help prevent the rest of your teeth from shifting from the loss of a tooth. They also improve your ability to speak and chew. An added benefit is the confidence you have in your new smile.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

At Willow Creek Dental, we are proud to offer same-day crowns. Our CEREC machine utilizes computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to quickly and precisely devise a customized porcelain crown. Before the CEREC crown a patient required multiple visits to the dentist to finish a restored crown. It is now easier than ever to return the appearance and function of a tooth that has been damaged due to trauma or a root canal. The convenience of a one-appointment crown is an added bonus.
