The Importance of Hygiene Visits

Setting up a routine to have your teeth cleaned by a professional hygienist is one of the best ways to improve your overall health. Plaque is sticky! Even with thorough brushing, some of it will cling in the grooves and pockets of your teeth and gums. If it's permitted to stay, plaque solidifies into tartar, which is beyond the ability of using your typical toothbrush and floss for removal. Tartar builds below your gum line as well as on the enamel of your teeth, creating a serious threat that invites decay and even gum disease to inhabit your mouth. Recent research shows a clear link between untreated gum disease and other life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Which means having your teeth cleaned is one of the most important reasons to visit your dentist!

Children's Dentistry

We Care About Kids!

We created the "Kid's Korner" as a spot for our younger patients to have some fun and allow their parents a little "down time" during their visit to the dentist. At Sheron Dental we endeavor to make your child's visit to the dentist a pleasant and positive experience. When we first meet your child and do the initial examination, we invite you to join him or her to help make them feel more relaxed. During follow-up appointments you may want to enjoy the relaxation room, but are welcome to accompany your child as well.

In our office, you can rest assured that your child will benefit from the latest advancements in children's dentistry, conveyed with caring, thoughtfulness, and compassion. We look forward to their first dental visit when they are one year old and watching them grow year after year. It is our happy task to encourage proper dental care habits, and we enjoy teaching children how to keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime.

Gum Disease Treatment

The Primary Cause of Lost Teeth

Periodontal (gum) disease destroys more teeth than any other cause. The problem is that the affliction often develops slowly, with no pain, which is why you may not realize that your gums are infected until after your teeth are permanently damaged. Are you experiencing these symptoms: bleeding gums when you brush or floss, and loose or shifting teeth? If so, your teeth are at risk, but it's not too late. Even if you've been told that you need gum surgery, we can help. The latest dental treatments have made it possible to control gum disease with a variety of non-surgical methods.

Dental Care in a Relaxing Environment

Our team understands dental anxiety, and we want to reduce your stress. Even though the doctors work diligently to deliver painless injections, some people are naturally distressed at even the idea of a needle. If you or a loved one experiences apprehension at the mention of the word "dentist," we have a simple solution.

We dispense a small pill for you to take one hour prior to your visit. It will relax you to a point that permits you to answer questions but mostly doze through your entire treatment. This is perfect for fearful people or those who have a hectic schedule and want to obtain all their treatment in a single visit.

CEREC Dental Crowns

Natural-Looking Crowns Made While You WaitIn the past, having a tooth repaired with a crown took a lot of time. First, there was the initial appointment, involving messy putty impressions and placing the temporary. Then you were delayed a week or more while an out-of-town lab cast the permanent crown. Afterwards, a follow-up appointment was necessary for your dentist to place the crown. And if it didn't fit correctly, the entire process started all over again. 
Thankfully, modern technology has made it possible to streamline the process. Instead of a two-week timeframe, in about one hour you can have your new permanent crown placed in your mouth. With CEREC computer-aided design and milling, the fit will be perfect, the crown will be durable, and our stain and glazing process will match the look of your natural teeth. CEREC enables us to satisfy patients seeking a long-lasting, aesthetic alternative to silver or plastic fi…
