Unlike in-office bleaching, this may take a couple of weeks to complete treatment.
Veneers are custom facings that are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth.
They can be made of porcelain or of composite resins, and are strong, durable, restorations that can improve the color, size, and shape of the teeth.
Veneers can help you achieve that beautiful white, straight smile you have always wanted.
Veneers can correct many dental problems such as discolored teeth, chipped or worn teeth, gaps, and crooked teeth.
Nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas is used to reduce patient anxiety before dental procedures.
We offer the very latest in dentistry with the use of Digital X-rays. Newman Family Dental is proud to utilize this innovative new technology.
Digital X-rays yield larger images than traditional X-rays, and the images can be enhanced, and more easily archived along with your medical records, even e-mailed to your insurance company.
They are obtained using small sensors no more gripping and biting down on film between your teeth.
Digital X-rays make the process easier for patients and more productive for the dentist.
Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
Conscious sedation is a type of sedation which includes an altered state of consciousness that minimizes pain and discomfort through the use of pain relievers and sedatives.
Patients who receive conscious sedation usually are able to respond to verbal cues throughout the procedure, communicating any discomfort they experience to the provider. A brief period of amnesia may erase any memory of the procedure.
At Newman Family Dental we provide mercury free white fillings.
If your old mercury fillings need removal we provide a safe environment for their removal and replacement.
A dental sealant is a composite material that is placed on the chewing surface of the teeth.
During the cavity prone years most tooth decay starts on these chewing surfaces.
The back teeth have naturally occurring grooves and pits. These grooves and pits tend to trap food particles and cavity causing bacteria.
The sealant seals over these grooves and pits preventing the invasion of this cavity causing bacteria.
A filling is what a dentist uses to restore a decayed or damaged portion of a tooth.
It is used when the area of decay is small to moderate in size and depends on a solid portion of tooth around it to support and hold it in place.
Dental fillings can be done in tooth color porcelain material or in silver.
A crown often called a cap is an artificial tooth made to completely cover or “cap” a badly decayed or damaged tooth.
A crown can restore the shape and size of a tooth, it can strengthen the tooth, and it can improve the appearance of a tooth.
It is used when the amount of decay or damage is severe.
If a tooth has more decay or old filling than it does solid tooth structure, a crown is needed for strength.
As a general rule once there is more filling than tooth, a crown becomes the treatment of choice.
A bridge is a dental appliance that replaces one or more natural teeth, thereby bridging the gap or space that exists when a tooth is lost.
Bridges are cemented into place using the teeth on either side of the existing space.
Unlike removable partial dentures, a bridge cannot be taken out of the mouth by the patient.
If a natural tooth does not exist on both sides of the space where the bridge is required an implant may be used to anchor the bridge into place.
Dental Implants – Dental implants offer a solution to missing teeth that is intended to be permanent. For over 30 years, dental implants have brought naturally beautiful, confident smiles to patients.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw or cylinder which is surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw bone.
The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, providing an anchor for your new tooth/teeth. Many patients choose dental implants because the result is a natural appearance that is intended to be permanent.
Implant Supported Dentures – Dental Implants can also be placed to anchor and support partial or full dentures, eliminating the need for dental adhesives.

Dentures are custom appliances that are made to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue structures.
A denture can be a full denture, an appliance that replaces all upper or lower missing teeth.
A partial denture, an appliance that replaces some of the teeth when some good teeth remain.
Repair and Relines
Denture Repairs – Dentures that are broken or have missing teeth can sometimes be repaired while you wait.
Denture Relines – Loose fitting dentures or partials can be tightened with a reline, which consists of adding acrylic to your denture or partial while you wait, or overnight.
A professional cleaning removes plaque, calculus tartar and stain from the teeth.
This not only keeps your smile looking its best, but also helps prevent serious dental disease from occurring.
Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in most all sources of water. Fluoride is effective in preventing and reversing the early stages of tooth decay.
Fluoride makes the surface of the tooth stronger so that it resists the acids in plaque that cause tooth decay.
Fluoride is available in two forms: topical and systemic. Topical fluorides include toothpastes, mouth rinses and professionally applied fluorides.
Systemic fluorides are those ingested into the body through water or dietary supplements.
There are several reasons that a root canal may be needed. The most common reason is when decay and bacteria invade the normal sterile pulp chamber causing an infection.
This infection can cause pain, swelling, and tenderness around the tooth. Trauma is probably the second most common reason a root canal may be needed. A blow or injury to a tooth can cause rupture in this internal life support of the tooth.
Sometimes a tooth that has been restored with a large filling or crown will die and require a root canal.
Once the pulp chamber of a tooth becomes diseased the tooth cannot heal itself. Without treatment by a dentist the abscess will spread out of the tooth and into the bone of the jaw.
An abscess can be a very severe medical problem. A root canal is a procedure that removes the nerve and blood vessels, and shapes and cleans the canal of the root.
This allows the tooth to remain in the mouth and function like your other teeth.
Periodontitis refers to an advanced stage of periodontal disease in which the ligaments and bones that support the teeth become inflamed and infected. It starts as bleeding gums from an accumulation of plaque or tartar on the teeth.
A periodontal disease that worsens can lead to the formation of pockets and bone loss. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to the loss of bone and tooth loss.
Periodontal disease is treated by scaling and cleaning the teeth and root surfaces. Smoking, diabetes, and some medications also contribute to tooth loss.
Periodontal Scaling: The process removes or eliminates the dental plaque, its products, and calculus – which cause inflammation.
Root Planning: Removes dental plaque and tartar, which house bacteria that release toxins which cause inflammation to the gum tissue and surrounding bone.
Gum Laser Treatment: A minimally-invasive treatment used to remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gum pocket by passing a laser light between the gum and tooth.
