Providing a Range of Services, Depending on Your Needs

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root and an excellent permanent option for tooth replacement. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your jaw bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures.

Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general and oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or injury for example. Since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support, they are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework. Dental implants are some of the most innovative solutions in dentistry today and have high success rates.

They can support:
  • A dental crown, which replaces one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
  • A bridge, which eliminates the need for a removable partial denture.
  • A denture, making it more secure and comfortable.


Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of clear, removable aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually move your teeth into place without the pain and without metal braces.

Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life. You only remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss. Since they have smooth edges they are comfortable to wear without irritating the gingival tissue (gums) and cheek. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position the doctor has prescribed for you. The length of treatment is determined by the doctor for your specific case.

Preventive and Cleaning

A preventive program is a collaborative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental hygienist to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental decay and periodontal disease.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office through regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile.

Whitening Zoom! ®️

Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple and non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel. It is an ideal way to increase the beauty of your smile. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old restorations and crowns, for example. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly whitened teeth.

Zoom! ®️ as seen on ABC's Extreme Makeover, offers the best cosmetic teeth whitening available. Of all the dental whitening treatments (laser teeth whitening, whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, whitening gel and trays), nothing whitens better or faster. Get an average of 8 shades whiter in just 45 minutes with Zoom! ®️ Zoom! ®️ has been clinically proven to be safe and effective.

Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Restorative - Composite or Amalgam Fillings

A filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by dental caries (decay), chips, fractures, as well as to close spaces between teeth. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed by drilling and then filled with a restorative material.

There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Composite fillings (tooth colored), along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the shade of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or on more visible areas of the mouth.

Fixed Bridge

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is a device to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. The traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the space created by one or more missing teeth.

Reasons for fabricating a fixed bridge are to:
  • Fill space of missing teeth.
  • Maintain facial shape.
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.
  • Restore your smile.
  • Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.


A denture is a prosthetic removable dental appliance constructed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth.

There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain; it not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth but also prevents other teeth from shifting.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Commited to Technology — Now Offering Same Day Crowns

Crowns can repair or restore a tooth significantly damaged by injury or decay. With the old process, the Dentist typically puts a temporary crown on the damaged tooth and waits a few weeks for the permanent crown to be back from the lab. For the best client experience, Millenium Dental now uses the Cerec, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This machine produces a crown the same day, right in the office. That means one appointment, no impressions, and no temporary crown.
