Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a great tool for patients who may be uneasy about their dental procedures. The beauty of using laughing gas for sedation dentistry is that your dentist can constantly adjust your level of sedation during the procedure & once it is shut off, the effects stop almost immediately. A few minutes after the procedure is complete, you’ll be back to normal!

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Did you know that people with sleep apnea can stop breathing for roughly 10-30 seconds at a time while they are sleeping? This can happen 5 to 30 or more times per hour, & hundreds of times throughout the night! If you suffer from sleep apnea or snoring, we can help with our sleep apnea treatment. Through the use of oral appliances, you’ll avoid the health consequences of sleep apnea, including increased rates of depression, diabetes, heart disease & stroke. These sleep apnea treatment devices will also help relieve snoring, leading to a better night’s rest for you & your partner.

Dentures

If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether you need partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to improve the look of your smile but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you had never lost your teeth, dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & cause a more aged appearance & they can also improve your speech.

Dentures Can Change Your Life!

Denture maintenance combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing can guarantee you’ll lead a more comfortable & healthy life. Please call us at Star Smiles Dental Group today to discuss if dentures are the right option for you!

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns cover & 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 tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. Dental crowns are a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped as well, or to cover a dental implant. Dental crowns can make your teeth stronger & improve their appearance.

Invisalign®

Invisalign is the revolutionary way to help you get straight & even teeth without noticeable & painful metal braces. Virtually undetectable, Invisalign aligners are made of strong & clear plastic that gradually guide your teeth into perfect alignment. Unlike metal braces, they have no wires or brackets. Tooth impressions are made, from which Invisalign develops customized aligners that will slide directly over your teeth. Aligners are typically worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 12-48 months—no longer than you would wear traditional metal braces. Aligners are replaced every two weeks as your teeth shift into place.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns & can perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment & creating uniformity. Star Smiles Dental Group porcelain veneers, which are made of thin, customized material designed to slide over the teeth, look incredibly natural, are long-lasting & are relatively easy to apply.

Contact or call us today to learn more & see if porcelain veneers are right for you!

Low-Radiation Digital X-Rays

We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film, which must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor. A picture of the tooth is instantaneously transmitted onto the monitor in the treatment room so we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details or to make an appointment!

Mercury-Free Dentistry

Mercury Amalgam (silver) fillings may be hazardous to your health. At Star Smiles Dental Group, we believe that the overall health of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to practice mercury-free dentistry. This means that we use only new & advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our patients how much we care. Your safety & smile are our primary concerns!

Dental Implants – Replacements & Restorations

Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. Since implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth rather than being removable like dentures, they allow a return to the comfort & function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health & well-being. In short, dental implants improve the quality of your life. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence & allow you to speak with greater clarity.
