Congratulations on taking a good step towards dental health! If you're into the idea that going to the dentist doesn't have to be an unpleasant one, then we invite you to Experience Dental Awesomeness. So what is Dental Awesomeness exactly? It's the comforting experience you enjoy as we provide the following dental health services:

  • Exams - the most common service you need is a dental exam, which is usually combined with a cleaning. We check to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy and happy.
  • Cleanings - we gently polish and clean your teeth to a healthy shine using the latest technology and gentlest instruments and techniques. We get those nooks and crannies that aren't easily cleaned with routine brushing and flossing.
  • Radiographs - we take pictures of your teeth to help us find any signs of decay or cavities. Raechel knows exactly where to look and what to look for to preserve optimal dental health.
  • Fillings - we restore damaged teeth with fillings fabricated out of dental amalgam or dental composites. Raechel goes to great lengths to ensure your bite remains normal and comfortable for you.
  • Sealants - we apply a tooth-colored coating to the surface of the tooth. This acts as a barrier, protecting the enamel in the grooves of your teeth from plaque and acids--the bad things that can be a real pain as they make holes your teeth. Our sealants help you avoid that.
  • Veneers - we apply porcelain veneers to give you a great smile that can last for well over a decade. Raechel's technical skills and attention to cosmetic detail ensure the design enhances the characteristics of your smile.
  • Bonding - if you're looking to a relatively short-term alternative to veneers, we can use bonding to repair teeth that are chipped, cracked, or discolored. We use a plastic resin that bonds to your teeth and typically lasts up to three to five years.
  • Extractions - although pulling teeth ranks as one of the least awesome experiences one can have, you and Dr. Nelson may determine it is necessary after discussing the issue and all possible alternatives to extraction. If you determine it is necessary, Raechel will go to great lengths to make sure you are comfortable and numb before carefully extracting the tooth.
  • Teeth Whitening - we help your smile come alive with our simple whitening procedure. It's safe, quick, inexpensive, and awesome. We provide you with trays and a whitening agent you wear only a few hours a day until your teeth are as white as you want.
  • Dental Implants - if you've lost one or more of your permanent teeth in an accident or any other way, we can replace those teeth with dental implants. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth. As implants involve your jaw bone bonding with titanium, Dr. Nelson works in conjunction with an implant-placement specialist to help make your procedure a success.
  • Crowns and Bridges - if damage to your teeth is extreme, or if you are missing teeth, we can use crowns and bridges to repair the look and function of your damaged or missing teeth. Raechel can help explain what options are available and recommended if there is a need.
  • Dentures - if you're missing many or all of your teeth, we may recommend dentures. A denture is an appliance that is inserted into the mouth that replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips. Regular visits to Raechel are still important as dentures will wear over time, and oral tissues can change and are susceptible to disease.
  • Sedation - dental awesomeness is sometimes achieved with the help of sedation dentistry. Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas, is the most common form of sedation as it allows you to alter the amount of sedation, there is no after affect such as a "hangover," and it's safe and effective. We also offer oral conscious sedation for patients that fear going to the dentist. This puts you in a deeply-relaxed state, yet you are still able to listen to and follow Dr. Nelson's instructions.
