Serious Strategies for Real Smiles

We're serious about our mission of helping you attain and preserve your oral health. For us, that means several things. First, we'll get to know you and your mouth through questions, listening, discussion, x-rays, and a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, supporting bones, and bite. This process helps us identify existing problems and potential concerns. Then, we'll simply outline a logical, individualized treatment plan. Often, a key aspect of that treatment involves preventing disease in the first place, the success of which includes specific steps for you to follow at home. Other times it involves first restoring health and strength to problem teeth, correcting functional concerns, or arresting disease.

Whatever the case may be, we strive to provide all the necessary services in a comfortable, pleasant environment. In fact, we hope that you'll find your experience here to be so enjoyable that share your enthusiasm with others who might benefit from our kind of care.

Preventive Care

First and foremost, our goal is to help you maintain strong, healthy teeth and strong, healthy supporting tissue. We emphasize this because these two factors are the foundation of comfortable, enjoyable oral health and a lifelong, attractive smile. And fortunately, attaining this goal is not complicated or mysterious. It simply involves establishing good habits, choosing proper nutrition, and keeping up with regular professional surveillance. So, we spend time explaining the destructive capacity of your own normal oral bacteria and how to control it on a daily basis. We'll teach you the latest information on what works and what doesn't. And we'll recommend specific, individualized strategies for keeping your oral health at its best. These strategies include:

  • Cleaning/Hygiene
  • Regular Checkups
  • Preventive Re-Care Visits
  • Dental Sealants
  • One-on-One client Education
  • Fluoride Treatment
  • Velscope Oral Cancer Screening
  • NTI (Night Guard) for grinding, clenching, and TMJ problems

Restorative Care

When it comes to correcting problems, our goal is to strengthen and improve your smile so that it continues to look, feel and function naturally. And while that may seem obvious, it's not easy. In fact, given all the variables that affect the mouth's proper biomechanics, precision restorative care is actually an art--requiring exceptional vision, hands on experience, and dexterity. And that's exactly what Dr. Voller provides…whether you're in need of a few simple fillings, orthodontics, crown and bridge work, or a complete bite rehabilitation.

Tooth Colored Restorations

So you look in the mirror, and you see what you think are small little brown stains on the tops of your back teeth. Well, with our laser diagnostic device, called the 'Diagnodent,' we can easily distinguish between what are stains, and what may actually be areas of decay UNDER the enamel (outside) layer of your teeth! In this case pictured, the Diagnodent helped us determine that these darker areas on these back teeth WERE actually decayed areas that entered the teeth through the tiny grooves that are on the top of everyone's teeth. We were able to remove these areas and restore the defective areas with tooth colored resin restorations that not only are life-like and very strong, but most importantly VERY conservative because we found these before they became huge holes of decay. We were done with this procedure in 20 minutes! If these teeth would have been sealed before they ended up becoming decayed, and if the client would have been warned of the dangers of sugared soft drinks, these would have never happened. Notice how the teeth are restored back to their original form, with all of the grooves designed into the new restoration. It is our feeling, that the more naturally shaped and shaded the final restoration is, the more ideal the outcome.

Gum Care

Gum disease is a stealthy, silent problem, shared by an estimated 80% of the population. That's why we're convinced that gum care deserves extreme diligence and effective tools. Like our phase contrast microscope…a high-powered device that allows us to identify and show you specific kinds of bacteria active in the mouth, allowing us to assess individual risk levels and treat/monitor various degrees of disease effectively.
