We offer tooth colored fillings and silver fillings. The tooth colored fillings, also known as composites or resins, are bonded to the tooth. The tooth colored fillings are almost undetectable and very cosmetic as well.
We offer take home whitening or “bleaching.” We offer the take home tray systems as a less expensive but very effective whitening system. You usually get your desired results in 2 weeks of daily wear. The trays are custom fitted and allow you to manage your own results at your own pace to achieve desired results.
Removable Partials and Dentures
We offer many ways to replace missing teeth. For areas that cannot be restored with fixed bridges or implants, we offer removable partials and dentures. Partials are used when only a few teeth are missing and dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. All of our partials and dentures are custom fabricated to each patient. These procedures take several appointments because each step is planned and tried in before the prostheses are completed. We use only quality labs, materials, and cosmetic teeth for a natural looking smile and comfortable fit. A popular choice by many patients now are Flex partials which have no metal clasps- this allows patients to smile without unsightly metal clasp display which is a problem in older partials with metal clasps.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Fear has no boundaries, it can affect all types of people. Research shows that almost 30% of the population avoids going to the dentist because of fear. There are also the patients with severe gag reflexes and people who cannot sit still for an extended period of time that need a better way to complete their dental treatment. Oral Conscious Sedation offers a relaxed, safe, pain free experience. Oral medication is taken the night before treatment and the day of treatment. The medications offered are well known, effective, and safe. While patients are never asleep, they are relaxed and completely comfortable. Dr. Miller has had extra training in oral conscious sedation. Your vital signs are monitored at all times and our staff is certified in CPR. For more detailed information about oral conscious sedation dentistry call our office at 256-442-8081
We offer restoration of dental implants in our office. Dental implants are now a very predictable, long-lasting method of tooth replacement in dentistry. Implants can be used to restore single teeth, multiple teeth, or as anchors to support partials and dentures. Many denture wearers have extreme difficulty eating and chewing that can be helped greatly with implants to help anchor the dentures in place. Please feel free to contact our office to ask about scheduling a consult to see if dental implants would benefit you.
All Porcelain Veneers, Crowns, & Bridges
Many patients have had some experience with crowns that aren’t very cosmetic or life-like. Today we can use crowns, bridges, and veneers that are of all porcelain materials and extremely life-like. These restorations transmit light just like tooth enamel and can be transparent on the edges just like natural teeth. Due to the advances in technology, bridges can also be constructed in all porcelain. In almost all cases, all porcelain crowns and bridges can be used today. View our Smile Gallery. Click Here!
Oral Surgery and Extractions
We offer both simple and surgical extractions of broken or badly decayed teeth in our office. Many times we will be able to accommodate emergency extractions the same day or within a short period of time if pain with the tooth is an issue. Dr. Miller has extensive experience in extracting teeth and he handles this procedure in our office. We also refer to our area oral surgeons in cases that require their expertise such as the removal of impacted wisdom teeth.
We offer root canal treatment in our office on selected teeth. We also refer to endodontists in our area on cases that are more difficult and would be best treated by a root canal specialist.
