Tooth Colored Fillings
Drs. Lafever and Gunnels have established an excellent periodontal program that has helped many patients avoid tooth loss and maintain healthier bone levels. They offer gentle, comprehensive nonsurgical gum care and a soft-tissue program that has helped restore many smiles over the years
Porcelain veneers offers the ultimate in esthetics. A veneer is a thin facing or covering that bonds to the natural tooth structure. A much more conservative alternative to crowns (caps) that can give you the smile you have always dreamed of and deserve.
Porcelain veneers are top line in cosmetic dentistry. If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth. Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time. The results are simply gorgeous!
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns
Drs. Lafever and Gunnels use a variety of teeth whitening techniques, including Zoom, to get your teeth their whitest and brightest. Zoom teeth whitening is the revolutionary in-office process that gets your teeth their whitest in just over an hour. Our in-home teeth whitening kits are easy to use and great results are achieved in 4 to 6 weeks. Call our office to learn more about our teeth whitening options
6 Month Smiles
Implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. Restoring your smile to its natural beauty has never been easier. Implants provide the most advanced solution for missing teeth, allowing you to talk, eat and smile with absolute confidence. They have many advantages, including their natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience. If you are considering implants, we can discuss the considerations and help you make the decision that is right for you
Dentures & Partials
Dentures come with huge benefits for patients and can greatly improve your quality of life. With today's technology, dentures are created to look natural in appearance and give the impression of a beautiful smile. Additionally, dentures provide support for your facial muscles as well as assist with your ability to chew and eat food, and they also assist with your ability to speak clearly.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Relax, you're in great hands!
Nearly 50% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable about going to the dentist or having dental procedures done.
Drs. LaFever and Gunnels understand the importance of helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. If you feel that sedation is necessary for your dental care, give us a call to learn more about our sedation dentistry.
We offer Oral Conscious Sedation. Take a pill one hour before your appointment and you can relax or sleep through your visit.
Oral sedation is very safe, and can assist us in completing all your dentistry in one visit.
The pills stay in a patient's system for several hours after the appointment, so there are few complaints of pain after procedures are completed.
How You May Feel
Most patients remember nothing about their treatment. A few will remember a little, usually at the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to go home. You will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your sedation appointment and you MUST have someone take you home afterwards.
Safety of Sedation
The reason that we use oral sedation is because of its safety. We use monitoring equipment to monitor your pulse and blood pressure. You'll be done before you know it, completely unaware of the time passing, totally relaxed.
