A Quick Look at Your Appointment
If it’s been a while since your last appointment, we’ll start with a complete set of x-rays.
Our hygienists are known for their gentle touch. We’ll carefully clean your teeth of tartar and plaque.
Questions or concerns about your dental health? Let us know what’s bothering you.
Dr. Sharma, Dr. Al or Dr. Clancy will examine your teeth and gums. If they notice anything that needs extra attention like signs of gum disease or tooth decay, will discuss restorative treatment options to help you get your dental health back on track.
TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS
Cavities can happen to anyone, even those with perfect dental hygiene habits. There’s no need to feel embarrassed about having one; Roughly 91% of people will deal with tooth decay at some point in their life and need a dental filling. Even our dentists have dealt with a cavity or two of their own!
What matters is that we spot and stop the decay before it causes big problems. We at Crown Isle Dental use BPA free tooth-colored composite fillings. Compared to old-fashioned silver fillings, the composite fillings offer the advantages below:
They’re smaller and require the removal of less of your natural tooth structure. Large silver fillings have a bad habit of coming loose and falling out over time.
Unlike metal fillings, they actually strengthen your tooth. This helps to prevent chips and cracks in the future.
The composite resin material is BPA free, biocompatible and 100% non-toxic.
They have a natural appearance and nobody will be able to see your filling when you laugh or smile!
Pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth are completely normal, but also very difficult to clean. Food and bacteria get easily trapped in these crevices and fuel decay.
We offer dental sealant treatments to help protect these hard-to-reach, “groovy” teeth and prevent cavities. Anyone can benefit from a dental sealant, but we especially recommend this treatment for our young patients. Contact us today to learn more.
While cavities that are caught early can be treated quickly and easily with a filling, preventing cavities with sealants is a preferable option for a few reasons:
Cavities weaken teeth, so preventing them keeps teeth stronger.
Applying dental sealants is painless and requires no anesthesia, unlike fillings.
It’s more expensive to get a cavity filled than to get a sealant for teeth.
A ceramic dental crown protects weak, damaged teeth so they can continue functioning (and shining brightly) for years to come by completely covering up and protecting the natural tooth. The crown will sit at the base of your gum line for a natural, seamless look and fit.
Here are a few situations where our dentists might recommend a dental crown:
Restore badly worn teeth
Repair a large cavity
Restore your tooth after a root canal
The final step of an implant
Thanks to advancements in technology and materials, getting a dental crown is easy:
3D imaging makes taking impressions much more accurate
Your digital mold is professionally milled by a dental lab
We’ll place a temporary crown while you wait for the final restoration
When it’s ready we’ll fit and place the crown, ensuring the perfect fit and shade
Sedation dentistry can transform the way that you think about dental work. Nitrous is a safe sedative agent in the form of a gas that is delivered through a nose mask and is only in effect when the mask is worn. It will help you keep calm and comfortable, while staying awake and breathing normally. Have some place to go after your appointment? That's ok. With the delivery of Oxygen after the procedure, you are able to arrive at your own appointment and then leave from your own appointment, allowing you to go on about your day. Adding Nitrous to your dental procedure is easy, and is a great option for reducing any anxiety!
If you are interested in receiving dental care in a relaxing and low-stress environment, contact our office today to find out more about your sedation dentistry oprions.
Removing a tooth is always a last resort, but doing so may be necessary when dealing with severe decay, infection, or a tooth with a poor prognosis.

A dental bridge is a non-removable appliance and offers an excellent, minimally-invasive option for replacing missing teeth. We often recommend dental bridges as an alternative to traditional dentures, and a non-surgical alternative to implants.
A traditional dental bridge relies on crowns placed over healthy teeth on either side of the gap in your mouth to hold the replacement teeth in place.
If you have missing teeth, talk with our dentists to learn more about bridges and other restorative options. We’ll help find the best solution for your situation.
