Through our cosmetic services, we are here to help you achieve the smile of your dreams! We always pay particular attention to your needs and comfort, and we offer multiple financing options. We strive to meet your expectations by helping you preview your new smile through simulations done on photos, on models, or on your own teeth or through beautiful, natural-looking temporaries. With our basic restorative services, our priorities are always your comfort, the function and longevity of your restorations, and pleasing aesthetics.

Dental Fillings

Fillings are used to restore tooth damage caused by tooth decay. Our office uses primarily composite or tooth-colored fillings which are virtually undetectable. Composite fillings, in addition to being more esthetically pleasing, bond directly to the tooth surface, unlike traditional amalgam or silver fillings. Amalgam is used only in the rare instances where composite would not have a good prognosis.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is composed of a ceramic resin that is brushed onto the tooth and hardened with intense light. Prior to bonding application the tooth surface must be prepared to accept the bonding. This is accomplished by roughening the tooth surface and applying a gel to micro-etch the surface. A primer agent is then applied so the bond will adhere properly. Dental bonding is used:
• Repairing tooth decay damage.
• To improve tooth alignment.
• To fill gaps between teeth.
• For cosmetic reasons (improve tooth appearance, including altering shade).


Dental Crowns

Crowns are used to restore severely damaged teeth due to fracture or decay. After the tooth surface is cleaned and prepared, the crown is placed to cover the remainder of the tooth. The crown strengthens the tooth structure and helps prevent future decay. Crowns also improve the tooth's look, shape, and alignment. Today's crowns are stronger and more beautiful than ever! Crowns are used to:
• Restore a fractured tooth.
• Restore a tooth severely damaged by decay.
• Protect a tooth from fracture.
• Cover a discolored or unattractive tooth.
• Cover a dental implant.
• Anchor a bridge.


Dental Bridges

Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth in both a cosmetic and functional fashion. A bridge structure is one or more artificial teeth anchored in place by natural teeth, crowns, or implants, on each side of the bridge. Using a bridge to fill the gap from missing teeth helps restore proper bite and prevent teeth from shifting to fill the gap (which may lead to additional bite and jaw joint issues). Bridges can be constructed from gold, porcelain and metal, or all ceramic. Ceramic bridge color is made to match your natural tooth color. Material choice will depend on structural requirements, wear, and esthetics. Bridges are used to:
• Replace missing teeth.
• Prevent teeth from shifting.
• Correct bite issues due to missing teeth.
• Help prevent jaw joint problems from altered bite.
• Improve appearance (cosmetic reasons).


Dentures - Complete, Partial and Custom

If you are missing one or more teeth, dentures can help restore your smile, your ability to chew and speak, and even your confidence. At Rogue Valley Dental Center, we specialize in both complete and partial dentures. Regardless of which type of denture you need, your restoration will be custom-fit for effective, comfortable, and long-lasting results!

Inlays and Onlays

Tooth decay is the erosion of your enamel. It occurs when the acids that are produced by plaque and oral bacteria linger on the surfaces of your teeth for too long. Eventually, this erosion leads to the formation of small pits or cavities in your teeth. Cavities need to be treated. Without treatment, they only continue to grow larger, compromising the health of the teeth. They are usually treated with fillings, either amalgam or composite resin. However, some cavities, such as those on the tops of your molars, present a unique problem. Traditional fillings can cause harm, rather than protecting and restoring the tooth. At Rogue Valley Dental Center, we can treat these cavities with another alternative, inlays and onlays.

Dental Implants

Implants may be the best option for replacing a single or multiple missing teeth or to improve retention for a denture or partial. An implant is a metal post that is attached directly to the jawbone. After the bone and surrounding tissue has healed an artificial tooth can be attached to the implant. Implants provide additional benefits compared to bridgework as they do not depend on neighboring teeth for structural support and cannot get cavities. Implants are the closest dental structure in durability to natural teeth and may have greater cosmetic appeal. Implants are used to:
• Replace missing teeth.
• Prevent teeth from shifting.
• Correct bite issues due to missing teeth.
• Help prevent jaw joint problems from altered bite.
• Improve appearance (cosmetic reasons).
• Help retain a denture or partial.


All-on-4® Treatment Concept

The All-On-4® Treatment Concept technology provides secure and optimal support for a prosthetic bridge with four dental implants. This cost-effective technology works in conjunction with porcelain or acrylic bridges and can immediately function after placement. The effectiveness of the All-On-4® Treatment Concept has been scientifically proven and documented.

Implant Anchored Dentures

There are many issues that can result in tooth loss. While one of the most common is gum disease, teeth can also be lost due to facial trauma or severe tooth decay. In some instances, the teeth come out on their own, in others, they need to be extracted. No matter what causes your tooth loss, many problems follow. Suddenly, tasks like eating and speaking become more difficult. You find your confidence plummeting because your smile is not what it used to be.

Your jawbone begins to weaken due to lack of stimulation, which causes the bone to change shape and alter your bite. Significant tooth loss, such as the loss of an entire arch, can also cause your facial features to begin collapsing, aging you several years. If you are missing a full arch of teeth, Rogue Valley Dental Center can help with implant anchored dentures.

Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers are custom crafted porcelain laminates fitted over the front of an existing tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, dramatically enhancing or restoring its shape, color, and appearance. Veneers are:
• Virtually undetectable.
• Very durable.
• An effective way to improve smile appearance.
• A quick and predictable way to achieve a smile makeover.


Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening, as the name implies, is a process for making your smile brighter and more attractive. The many methods of teeth whitening vary widely in time, effectiveness, cost, but all can help you achieve the smile of your dreams!

Root Canal

A root canal becomes needed when tooth decay is so badly neglected it reaches the tooth pulp. Once the pulp is infected it cannot heal on its own. Sometimes tooth trauma such as a fracture can lead to the need for a root canal as well. In addition to being painful, untreated infections can reach the root tip and compromise the entire immune system. Symptoms of pulp infections may be:
• Sensitivity to hot/cold.
• Sensitivity to sweets.
• Pain, especially when biting.
• Swelling.
• Bad taste in the mouth.

A root canal procedure includes cleaning out the infected pulp, disinfecting the canals and filling the void with a rubber like substance to prevent further infection. Sometimes a crown is recommended to restore the tooth shape, look, and to strengthen the tooth structure.

Tooth Extractions

At Rogue Valley Dental Center, we strive to keep your teeth in a beautiful, healthy state. Our preventive, cosmetic, and restorative services are designed to provide you with a lifetime of natural teeth. Unfortunately, this is not always the possible. Sometimes, tooth extraction may be a necessary step to improve your oral health. Not to worry, though, we offer several solutions that replace missing teeth!
