OUR DENTAL SERVICES
SureSmile Aligners are a series of transparent, removable, and virtually invisible clear aligners designed to progressively straighten your teeth into their ideal position. Most importantly, the SureSmile aligner process gives you the peace of mind that your treatment plan is developed and monitored by your local and trusted dental professional.
Who doesn’t love a bright, white smile? At Guido Famliy Dentistry, we offer several professional whitening solutions, ranging from in-office treatment to customized whitening trays to whiten in the comfort of your own home.
Porcelain veneers are excellent for masking cracked, chipped, broken, discolored, or slightly misaligned teeth. They are customized tooth casings that ‘are bonded’ and fit tightly over the tooth, hiding imperfections. Veneers are specially made to match the natural tooth enamel, resulting in a clean, natural-looking, flawless smile.
A complete transformation of your smile, working together to create your picture-perfect smile.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace one or more missing teeth. An implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone to function as the tooth root and support a prosthetic tooth. In addition to improving the appearance of your smile, dental implants restore the functionality of your teeth. Dental implants are comfortable, durable, convenient, and allow patients to eat, speak, and smile again.
Tissue recontouring improves the appearance of the gums by reshaping them to complement your teeth. A simple tissue recontouring procedure can significantly enhance patients’ smiles with uneven or exaggerated gums. Using our state-of-the-art Solea Laser we are able to comfortably sculpt gums into a more pleasing shape and better proportion.
White Dental Fillings
White dental fillings are another safe and effective alternative to outdated silver amalgam fillings. Made from a white composite resin material, fillings are inconspicuous, durable, and restore the original strength and functionality. Patients enjoy the aesthetic benefits of white fillings, and Dr. Saterfiel recommends white fillings because they look amazing, are mercury free, long-lasting, and prevent further damage to the tooth.
Using Cerec technology, Dr. Guido Walker can provide dental restorations, such as dental crowns, inlays, and onlays, in only a single office visit. She will use the technology to create a digital impression of your teeth in order to create a restoration that perfectly fits your teeth. The restoration is then created in our office, saving you time and comfort by avoiding a second visit and temporary restoration.
Dental crowns are customized tooth coverings placed over badly damaged teeth. Most of our crowns are porcelain created with our Cerec technology and are useful for restoring strength to a decayed or badly broken tooth. They match the size, shape, and overall appearance of your natural teeth, and are a long-lasting solution.
Dental bridges are an excellent solution for closing gaps in a person’s smile caused by missing teeth. It takes less time to restore the space with a bridge than with an implant. You could expect a new bridge in about two weeks whereas an implant placement with crown could take 3-6 months.
We strive to save as many teeth as possible. However, when that is not possible we work with trusted dental labs and specialists to create a partial or full denture that is comfortable, functional, and offers you a smile that you’ll love.
An essential phase in the doctor-patient relationship where we get to know you and, more importantly, you get to know us. Dr. Guido Walker will evaluate your current oral health status, your goals and concerns, and begin developing your personalized treatment plan.
Professional Hygiene Therapy & Fluoride
Your experienced Dental Hygienist will clean hard-to-reach places where plaque and tartar tend to build. We will use specialized dental instruments to clean the area below the gum line and in between the teeth. Hygiene Therapy visits at least every 6 months will significantly reduce the risk of cavities, gum disease, and many other dental issues.
Fluoride Treatment is a gel-like substance consisting of useful minerals that are applied to the surface of your teeth to strengthen them and prevent decay.
Digital X-rays allow for images much faster and are safer for you and the environment. We will take digital X-rays of your teeth, jaw, and mouth to get a more detailed look for any potential issues. The digital X-rays may reveal decay in between teeth, impacted teeth, infection, jaw damage, or jaw misalignment, all of which should be addressed immediately.
Our VELscope technology uses natural tissue fluorescence to detect abnormal tissue in your mouth. As oral cancer kills roughly 1 person, per hour every day in the US, it is critical to be screened for oral cancer several times each year. This is why we provide screening at each of your hygiene therapy visits.
