During your dental cleaning our dental hygienists will find plaque and calculus in those hard-to-reach areas of your mouth and remove these disease-causing agents from your teeth. Surface stains will be removed and teeth polished with polishing paste. As part of your dental exam, the dentist will examine your face, neck, teeth and soft tissues including lips, tongue, palate, throat and gums.
We use tooth-colored fillings as an option to amalgam to repair small cavities or defects in your teeth. These fillings do not contain any metal but, instead, are made of a durable composite resin material that is easily shaped and blends well with your natural teeth. The results are a completely natural looking smile.
Are you looking to improve the appearance of your smile with teeth whitening? Dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure in dentistry, especially as a cosmetic dentistry procedure. As a person ages, it is common for adult teeth to become darker due to changes in the structure of the tooth. Teeth can also become stained by bacteria, food, drink and tobacco. Certain antibiotics may also affect the coloring of your teeth. When you are looking for expert teeth whitening, call Dr. James P. Johnson. There are many methods available to whiten teeth including bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, laser bleaching. Our dentist will work with you to discover the method of whitening that is best for you.
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements used to counter tooth loss. When it comes to tooth loss, dental implants are the most popular procedure.

When it comes to the restoration of the necessary functionality of your teeth and supporting structures, it is important that you choose the best procedure for your situation. For more information on our quality dental implants, give the experts at Dr. James P Johnson today. The procedure requires a period of oseointegration since they are functionally connected to living bone. After your dental implants procedure, your implants will be virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth!
Dentures are an artificial replacement for natural teeth and are made of acrylic and metals like stainless steel. They are custom designed to fit your mouth and designed to look just like your real teeth. We offer several options to create the right fit, so you can enjoy a beautiful, functional smile for years to come. There can be many reasons why an individual may be missing teeth, including periodontal disease, injuries, or aging. Regardless of the cause, missing teeth can be highly problematic if they’re not replaced with some type of dental restoration. Dentures are a favorable option, because they can spare you from the extensive surgical process of full dental implants, and can blend seamlessly into your smile for a natural look.
Bridges & Crowns
Cosmetic dentistry can correct any number of smile flaws, creating beautiful, natural-looking results. Veneers are bonded directly to the front of the teeth, covering any flaws instantly. They are custom-made to your specifications and will truly transform your smile. Bridges and crowns repair and replace broken or missing teeth. The results are a natural, stunning smile that you will love.
When infection damages the pulp of the tooth your dentist or an endodontist may have to perform root canal therapy to save your tooth. This treatment involves opening the tooth; removing the damaged pulp from the inside; and then disinfecting, shaping, filling and sealing the tooth. Depending on how much infection is present, you may be put on a medicine regimen prior to the procedure. After root canal therapy, the tooth may need to be restored with a crown for protection. After that, the tooth will continue to function like your other natural teeth. Endodontists are experienced in emergency pain control, and the root canal procedure itself is usually painless. Our staff is specially trained to work with patients to manage pain, anxiety, and fear, and understand that doing so is an important part of the root canal therapy process. We want our patients to get back to being pain free and healthy as quickly as possible
