We emphasize prevention at McLane Family Dental. Routine dental examinations and cleanings, combined with education and good oral hygiene and dietary habits encourage life-long oral health and minimize the risk of developing cavities and gum disease. Other preventive services we provide include sealants, topical fluoride, and nightguards.
Want to smile with complete confidence? Even a subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. Cosmetic procedures such as bonding, veneers, crowns, and tooth whitening can help you attain a smile you can be proud of.
Dental implants are rapidly becoming the standard for replacement of missing teeth due to their potential for longevity, stability, and natural appearance. Implant crowns, bridges, and implant-supported dentures are an excellent alternative to restore function and esthetics when a tooth or teeth have been lost.
Nitrous and Oral Sedation
We want your experience at McLane Family Dental to be as comfortable as possible. We offer anti-anxiety options such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedatives to help more anxious patients relax during their visit.
Many people desire a brighter, whiter smile, and some patients will benefit from teeth whitening. At McLane Family Dental, we offer take-home teeth whitening with custom-fitted trays for optimal results (usually within two weeks) and minimal tooth sensitivity.
Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing (deep scaling) or antimicrobial therapy are focused on establishing a state of health in the gums and bone that support the teeth.
Dentures and Partials
If you’ve lost several, or all, of your natural teeth due to tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease, or injury, complete or partial dentures are one alternative to restoring your ability to eat, speak, and smile. In addition, implant-supported dentures offer dramatically increased retention and function over traditional dentures.
Tooth-colored composite fillings offer a natural-looking solution for fixing cavities or chipped teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
A crown (sometimes called a “cap”) can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough natural tooth left or the tooth is starting to crack. It can be used to attach a bridge to replace a missing tooth, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. Crowns can also be used to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials, like porcelain, designed to cover the front side of teeth. Veneers may be placed to correct gaps in your teeth or cover teeth that are irreversibly stained, badly shaped or crooked.
