Crowns & Bridges

Dr. Carlson uses crowns and bridges to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged, or to take the place of missing teeth. A crown also referred to as a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, and alignment.

Smile Whitening

Tooth Whitening is an easy solution for people who want to improve the color of their teeth with minimal procedures. Remove stains from coffee, smoking, or other common causes with a painless tooth whitening from Dr. Carlson. We offer several tooth whitening options, all of which will be more effective than any over-the-counter solution.

Bonding

Composite bonding resin is a white, tooth-colored material that can be shaded to match your teeth. This material can give you a low-cost improvement in your smile. Normal pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth can trap food that can’t easily be removed with brushing.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking solution to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants bond directly to the jawbone by attaching a titanium post and connector to create a sturdy base for the crown. Dental implants with Dr. Carlson are an excellent solution for those who want to improve their smiles while allowing the lifestyle you’re accustomed to – confidently smile, laugh, and eat what you want.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are made from a thin, translucent layer of porcelain that fits over an existing tooth to give it an improved shape, color, or size. If your teeth are chipped, stained, have an unsightly gap, or are ground down, and you’re ready for a change, you should consider a makeover with veneers.
