    • What material do you use for fillings?

      We use “composite”—a tooth-colored particle-filled resin material which bonds to your tooth structure. Research and development has led to fabulous composite materials which have properties close to natural tooth structure and which provide excellent functional and esthetic results.

    • What is a "veneer"?

      A veneer is a covering bonded to the tooth to achieve the desired esthetic result. Veneers can be quite thin with minimal contouring of the teeth needed. Basically, the design changes in accordance with the desired color and contour changes.

    • Do you use digital x-rays?

      Yes. During my years in dentistry, it has been exciting to stay current with changing technologies. I invested in digital radiographs numerous years ago and love the advantages of digitals!

    • What is the difference between "basic" care and "integrative" care?

      “Basic” care addresses gum disease and tooth problems (e.g. decay, fractures, missing teeth). In addition to the basic disease issues, “integrative” care also evaluates the way the teeth contact each other (the impact of function/muscle forces on tooth health). and the individual’s smile. By “integrating” all findings into the planning process, a well-thought out and cost-effective plan can be devised. By incorporating all factors into careful planning, the treatment process is clear, and the desired health, function, and esthetic results are enjoyed.
