Caring for your teeth is paramount to your overall health and great oral hygiene ensures a long lasting smile for years to come. Have your children seen the dentist yet? We take our young patients just as seriously as our other patients.

Zoom Whitening is an in-office dental whitening procedure that involves coating the teeth in a powerful bleaching agent (hydrogen peroxide) in order to enhance the whiteness. Zoom Whitening was created by Philips and goes by many different names, including Zoom 2 or Philips Zoom. It generally takes less than an hour in office, and there’s also a treatment that can be done at home. Our patients are very happy with their Zoom Whitening results. Your teeth will remain a lighter shade if you make sure to brush and floss regularly after the procedure. You may require the occasional touch-up with Zoom NiteWhite or the corrective pen. We are having a special right now where you can get Zoom whitening for $399 ($600 Value!).
We are sure by now you have heard of Veneers. Veneers are a plastic or porcelain coating bonded to the front surface of a damaged tooth. Many people make use of veneers to rid themselves of visible flaws on a tooth as well as correcting aesthetic issues a patient may have. The ultra-thin porcelain coatings give the patient the option to cover dental imperfections. They can give your teeth the shape, color and shine you desire. Before a veneer is placed, a small amount of the tooth must be removed by the dentist so it fits comfortably within your mouth. Veneers could also be used to protect the surface of a tooth with a sensitive condition. We are specialized in Veneers and are here to give you a consultation. There is no need to tolerate the appearance of a bad tooth when your smile can be quickly and easily repaired with a veneer!
Implant dentistry is quickly becoming the go-to procedure for patients seeking a replacement tooth. This differs from a veneer or crown in that it is not material bonded to a preexisting tooth, but rather a dental implant is a base for a whole new tooth. The dental implants are attached directly to the jawbone, creating a stable anchor for the new, artificial tooth. They act as replacement tooth roots, as a titanium post is inserted into the bone where the tooth used to be. Once this stage heals the crown, bridge or dentures are securely screwed right into place. Reasons for dental implants besides replacing a missing tooth include relieving joint pain caused by teeth shifting into the open space, restoring chewing, speech and digestion, enhancing facial features as well as comfortably supporting a bridge or dentures.

Dentists understand the fear and discomfort many people may associate with dental appointments. They try to accommodate to the best of their abilities with techniques such as sedation therapy which has proven efficacy in managing anxiety during dental treatment. This could include a tooth extraction, root canal, filling a cavity or various other maladies that would require some kind of pain management. Inhalation sedation (nitrous oxide) is commonly used for mild treatment or anxiety and is the only sedation that you can take and then drive home once the treatment is completed. Nitrous oxide consists of oxygen and nitrous oxide and is often referred to as “laughing gas,” which will help keep you comfortable and relaxed.
If you have ever had a root canal than you know how important it is to see a dentist who can provide you the utmost care. A root canal happens when a bad cavity spreads from the enamel through the dentin and into the pulp. If this cavity is not cared for in a timely fashion the bacteria could spread to the root of the tooth, requiring a root canal. At Miles of Smiles, our Doctors are from the top dental institutions in the Nation and we provide a caring environment where all our patients feel comfortable.
We also also provide the Dental Services listed below. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding dental treatments. We are here to help and happy to make you smile!
Composite Fillings: Composite Fillings are tooth-colored dental fillings that are designed to be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They provide good durability and resistance to fractures on the teeth that need to withstand the constant stress of chewing. Many people prefer composite over amalgam fillings because the latter is a metal filling that can be noticeable depending on the visibility of the tooth.
Dental Bridge: A Dental Bridge is a prosthesis that can permanently bridge the gap between one or more missing teeth. It is a series of crowns placed to provide the patient with a complete smile.
Crown: A Crown is a form of dental restoration where a tooth-shaped cap is placed over a tooth with a large cavity to protect it from any further health concerns. Crowns are generally made of gold and are bonded to the tooth using dental cement.
Night Guard: A Night Guard is a device used to prevent you from grinding your teeth while you sleep. Bruxism is a common problem and can lead to damage on the surface of your teeth, migraines as well as the painful popping or aching in your jaw known as TMJ.
Denture: A Denture is a prosthetic device constructed to replace missing teeth. Dentures are a removable plate or frame with one or more artificial teeth held in place by the oral cavity.
