Our preventive dental services includral health exams, oral cancer screening, X-rays, cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments. We also emphasize preventative education such as proper brushing and flossing methods as the best way to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Restorative Procedures

Tooth Colored Dental Fillings – Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of a tooth or teeth. Structural damage can be caused as a result of tooth decay, wear or trauma. After the removal of a problematic tooth structure, the tooth is restored with tooth-colored filling materials.

Bonding – Bonding is the term used to describe the process of using composite resins to “glue” materials to the surface of a tooth for restorative purposes. Chipped or cracked teeth are typically repaired through bonding. An enamel-like composite material is applied to the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured and polished, making the crack or chip invisible.

Laser-Assisted Root Canals – Root canal therapy (RCT) allows Dr. Arnold to remove infected pulp tissue within the root chamber of the tooth. Laser energy is then gently used to thoroughly clean and irrigate the infected canal.The hollowed-out tooth is then filled with an antibacterial filling, and the tooth is “capped” with a crown for protection.

Cerec Same-Day Crowns – Dr. Arnold can repair your significantly decayed or damaged tooth with a dental crown in as little as one day. A crown is different than a dental veneer, which only covers a tooth’s forward-facing surface and requires a natural tooth structure as a foundation. Same- day crowns allow teeth to function normally by strengthening nearby teeth that are damaged.

Periodontal Gum Care and Cosmetic Gum Surgery – Early gum disease treatment may include tooth scaling and cleaning at three-month intervals along with use of medicated mouthwash and proper flossing. Later-stage gum disease treatment may require root planing and scaling, periodontal surgery,

and laser surgery.

Cosmetic Procedures

Custom Dentures- When you are missing one or more adjacent teeth, partial dentures (bridge) or complete dentures can be used as a replacement. Today’s premium-quality dentures can be fully customized in different ways based on your cosmetic goals, lifestyle, and budget.

Dental Implants- Implants offer many advantages over a conventional bridge or dentures, starting with the fact they look, feel, and function more like real teeth. As a realistic replacement for one or more missing teeth, a dental implant’s prosthetic root holds it securely in place, which helps preserve existing bone in the area.

Veneers – If you have one or more teeth that are discolored, broken, or misshapen, dental veneers are the perfect way to create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Extremely strong and durable, veneers are thin shells of porcelain that Dr. Arnold bonds onto the front of your teeth, producing a beautiful, natural smile that compliments your facial features.

Zoom™  Teeth Whitening – Over time, smoking, certain foods, red wine, and other beverages can stain and discolor your teeth. At Frank Arnold Dentistry, we offer in-office teeth whitening using the latest products and methods, including Zoom™ light-accelerated technology. With noticeable improvement after only one visit, our professional teeth-whitening services will unleash a whiter, brighter smile that you can’t wait to share with others.

Invisalign – When you have crooked or misaligned teeth, Invisalign clear plastic aligners are a more comfortable, less noticeable teeth-straightening alternative to traditional braces. In most cases, our Invisalign patients achieve their smile-restoration goals within 12 months or less.
