Taking good care of your teeth and gums is an important part of life. A beautiful smile not only looks good, but it is also an indicator of your overall health. Studies have shown that systemic illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, are directly linked to oral health complications like periodontal (gum) disease. At Harper Dental, our goal is to help you maintain excellent oral health and improve your overall quality of life. Our services include comprehensive, restorative, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics. If you are in need of any professional dental treatment, you have come to the right place!
A large part of our practice involves comprehensive dentistry. We take great pride in treating every member of the family, from infants to grandparents! These treatments are often simple and straightforward, designed to prevent potential problems. A routine appointment typically consists of a dental cleaning and check-up exam. We may also recommend an oral cancer screening for adults, and fluoride treatment for children. If we notice any instances of tooth decay or gum disease, you may need restorative treatment.
Restorative dentistry is designed to fix any problems you may have with your teeth, gum tissues, jaw, and bone structure. We may recommend a dental filling to correct instances of minor or moderate decay. If the damage is substantial, you may need a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the function and aesthetics of the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving, Dr. Mitchell Harper, DDS will perform a tooth extraction. Tooth loss is much more common then you may think. For this reason, we offer several replacement solutions, some of which include a dental bridge, dental implants, and dentures.
Dental implants are a non-removable procedure that can take the space of a removed tooth or teeth. Here at Harper Dental, we recommend it as a great alternative to dentures and dental bridges since they feel extremely natural to the user and are almost as safe and strong as natural teeth. Getting dental implants isn’t a complicated process at all, and you’ll get long-lasting results. Modern dentistry allows us to place your implants efficiently, with no complications and without making you uncomfortable. You’ll have natural-looking teeth in no time and will keep your mouth healthy and strong.
Cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly over the past few decades thanks to advancements in technology and technique. Cutting-edge equipment allows us to improve the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of an unsightly tooth. The cosmetic services we provide include teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, dental sealants, dental veneers, and dental bonding. Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most common procedures we perform due to its effectiveness. We may recommend a porcelain crown for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. The same is true for dental veneers. Both restorations are fabricated using porcelain because of its unmatched aesthetic value.
If you have recently been told you or your family could benefit from orthodontic treatment, you may be wondering why. At Harper Dental, we believe orthodontic treatment is one of the best ways to achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile! The following information can help you better understand who is need of treatment, and why it is so important!
