Patients with missing teeth, or those with bridges or dentures, can regain the function, beauty, and a more solid bite with dental implants. So whether you need a simple regular check up, a dental cleaning, a cosmetic dental consultation, or full-mouth rehabilitation, our skilled and friendly team can provide you the quality dental services you need.

 

General and Preventive Dentistry

Dr. Steven Laifer provides high quality general dental services in a friendly, caring environment that focuses on your health and comfort. Dr. Laifer can help you achieve a beautiful and natural-looking, bright smile that improves your overall confidence, health and well being.


Hygiene Treatments

Daily plaque buildup can lead to tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. During a hygiene treatment, our very experienced, thorough and gentle registered dental hygienists will remove tartar and dental plaque from your teeth, conduct a preliminary screening for periodontal disease, and provide tips to improve your tooth brushing techniques to maintain your beautiful smile. Regular dental hygiene treatments are extremely important in helping you to enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.

Preventing and Controlling Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss among American adults, and can be prevented and controlled through regular professional care. We offer conservative Periodontal treatment, which includes the use of Arestin, a time-release antibacterial medication that can control bacteria in specific areas and reverse inflammation caused by Periodontal disease.

 

Air Abrasion

The technology of air abrasion allows Dr. Steven Laifer to gently and painlessly remove tooth decay without the use of a drill and, in most cases, without the need for anesthetic. With air abrasion, a fine stream of particles aimed at the tooth gently abrades away small to moderate amounts of decay.

 

Night Guards

Millions of people grind or clench their teeth while sleeping. This can cause excessive wear on the teeth as well as cracks in tooth structure. Dr.  Laifer can fabricate a custom, well-fitting night guard appliance to protect your teeth. This comfortable, protective device is worn while sleeping to shield your teeth top and bottom teeth from excessive wear.

 

TMJ Treatment

Does your jaw stick, pop, or click? You may have a condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), where the hinge connecting the jaws does not move properly or has deteriorated. As part of his examination, Dr. Laifer examines you for TMJ problems during regular check ups. If you have TMJ, treatments are available that can help to relieve the associated symptoms.


Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry

Even if your teeth are very healthy, you may wish to have brightening, straightening, or other enhancements to make your smile even more attractive. If you want the smile of your dreams, Dr. Laifer can help. Cosmetic dentistry services can improve almost every smile. After a comprehensive exam, we'll give you a custom designed treatment plan to build the beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted.

 

Dental Implants

Dental implants can restore missing teeth permanently. Dr. Laifer, in conjunction with his expert colleagues, can restore missing teeth using the latest implants and techniques, giving you more comfortable eating and a greatly improved smile.

 

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin layers of esthetic porcelain, custom-made for you in a dental laboratory by highly-trained ceramists to lighten your teeth or to match adjacent, undamaged teeth. The veneers are placed over your front teeth to cover cracks, chips, discolorations, or other imperfections, and to recreate your smile. Today’s veneers look very natural, and they do not stain as easily as natural teeth. If you have ever dreamed of the more beautiful smile, porcelain veneers can help you achieve it.

 

Gentle Tooth Whitening

Have a younger, brighter smile easily. We offer popular whitening methods that can give you the smile that you always wanted. Tooth whitening is a very popular treatment in our office. We offer gentle, effective "take home" whitening products, as well as Zoom! Advanced Teeth In-Office Whitening to remove discolorations from your teeth and provide you with a conservative, non-invasive option for a dazzling smile. You can look years younger with a brighter, whiter smile.

 

Dental Consultations

Dr. Steven Laifer has transformed many smiles with cosmetic dentistry. He can create a custom plan for you. Combining general, restorative, or cosmetic services, he can create exactly the kind of smile you wish to have. Dr. Laifer will listen to your needs and wants, explain your options and help you to choose your preferred methods and schedule to complete your treatment.

 

Porcelain Fillings

Dr. Steven Laifer restores decay with tooth-colored porcelain and composite to maintain your healthy, naturally white smile. Porcelain and composite fillings are free of metals and more exactly match your teeth. Dr. Laifer can also replace older, discolored metal fillings with mercury-free porcelain fillings.

 

Porcelain Crowns and Bridges

When you have a damaged tooth, we may recommend a tooth-shaped restoration called a crown that covers and strengthens your natural tooth. For missing teeth, Dr. Laifer may suggest a fixed, non-removable, permanently cemented bridge, in which one or more porcelain teeth are used to replace the missing natural teeth.

 

Bonding

Dental bonding uses a composite resin material and is used for a variety of structural or cosmetic reasons. Using dental composite resin bonding, Dr. Laifer can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your teeth.

 

Sealants

A sealant is a plastic material that is put onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, premolars and molars. This plastic resin bonds into the depressions and grooves of the chewing surfaces of these teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting the enamel on the back teeth from plaque or acids.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry is a great and affordable way to improve the way you look and feel. You can brighten your appearance with a better smile.
Regular Checkups Getting regular dental checkups is a good idea in order to maintain dental health and handle small problems before they become big ones.
Regular Cleanings Regular dental cleanings are an important component of dental health.
Teeth Whitening can be done in one session and can make a big difference in your appearance and confidence.
