Did you know that according to statistics, more than 90% of adults ages 20-64 have had a cavity in their lifetime? And, tooth decay doesn’t just affect grownups. Cavities also affect the youngest members of the population; with 78% of children having had a cavity by the time they’re 17 years of age. While these percentages are alarmingly high, tooth decay is an almost entirely preventable condition. With routine checkups and care, our dentist can help reduce your risk of dental disease. At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we utilize the most advanced technology and methods of care to help patients of all ages enjoy optimal oral health.
Tooth decay is caused by plaque, which is a sticky biofilm that gathers continuously on your teeth. The problem is that plaque harbors thousands of colonies of bacteria, some of which are responsible for cavities and gum disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugar, are important steps for preventing any buildup of plaque and protecting your teeth from cavities, it’s also important to see your dentist for routine care. Plaque can gather in the difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums where it can only be reached with a professional teeth cleaning. As part of our comprehensive program of preventive care, we thoroughly remove any residual plaque and tartar, and offer guidance as to how you can improve your daily oral hygiene at home. As an added level of protection against tooth decay, we offer pediatric patients periodic fluoride treatments, and dental sealants.
For patients of all ages, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. In this way, we can monitor the ongoing oral health of our patients. If a cavity is detected, our dentist will gently and precisely remove the decay, then restore the tooth with a dental filling. At our practice, we utilize the latest generation of tooth-colored restorative materials, for the most natural looking and seamless results of care.
At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our practice and the many services we provide, give our office a call today.
Imagine the difference… imagine kicking your smile up a notch from ordinary to extraordinary! It’s possible, thanks to today’s latest teeth whitening procedures. At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we can transform your vision of a more attractive smile into a reality. We provide skilled and experienced care and are dedicated to helping every patient enjoy the benefits of a beautiful and healthy smile.
Our professional strength teeth whitening procedure can reverse the effects of tooth stains caused by such discoloring agents as coffee, tea, soda, red wine, highly pigmented food, tobacco, the effects of certain medications, as well as the natural yellowing that often comes with age. Professional treatment involves a higher concentration of whitening components than over-the-counter treatments to provide safer, faster and more effective results. For your convenience, we can also prescribe a whitening kit for you to use in the comfort of your own home. The home whitening method brightens your teeth more gradually, but is equally effective, and can also be used to perfect and maintain the whiteness of your smile following an in-office treatment.
For more extensive dental imperfections or if a teeth whitening procedure is not the most suitable solution for you, we also offer a comprehensive selection of other cosmetic services that can effectively transform less-than-perfect looking teeth into ones that dazzle.
A great-looking smile can give you the confidence to thrive in your social and professional life. With teeth whitening one of our specialties, the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry can help you achieve precisely the results you want.

If you have lost one or more teeth, consulting with an experienced dentist regarding methods of tooth replacement is one of the best things you can do. At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest levels of care to ensure optimal oral health. Whether you are considering bridges, dentures, or dental implants, we are confident we can help you find a treatment plan that suits your needs.
More than 36 million Americans do not have any teeth, and 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth. These numbers are expected to grow in the next two decades. While tooth loss may be associated with some medical conditions, it’s primarily the result of extensive decay and gum disease, or as a result of an injury. Moreover, studies suggest that individuals with missing teeth are less likely to be socially active and more likely to suffer from low self-esteem.
We firmly believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits of a healthy and complete smile. Our dental implants are a revolutionary approach to tooth replacement. Unlike treatment options of the past that addressed tooth loss above the gum lines, dental implants are small surgical posts that are inserted into the jawbone to perform in the same manner as the roots of your own teeth. As the site heals, the implant fuses with the bone to form a stable anchoring point for the placement of a cosmetically pleasing and functional crown, bridge, or overdenture.
Don’t let missing teeth take a toll on your quality of life when we’re here to help. If you are considering dental implants or any other restorative treatment for your smile, the experienced professionals at Crowns Now Family Dentistry are ready to assist you. For more information on any of our general, preventive, cosmetic, or restorative services and to schedule an appointment, call our office today.
It’s a common affliction for both children and adults: tooth decay. In fact, more than 90 percent of adults over the age of 20 and 78 percent of children ages 17 or younger have experienced a cavity in their lifetime. At the offices of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, our team of skilled professionals focuses on prevention and early intervention to help you and your loved ones maintain optimal oral health.
Cavities are caused by a buildup of plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously inside your mouth and harbors bacteria that are potentially harmful to your teeth and gums. The bacteria in plaque metabolize the sugars in your food to produce acids and irritants that cause dental disease.
While limiting your intake of sugary foods brushing and flossing daily are important for combatting the effects of plaque bacteria, it’s also important to visit our office for an exam and teeth cleaning twice a year. With a professional teeth cleaning, we can thoroughly remove any residual buildup of plaque from hard-to-reach areas between your teeth and gums. We strive to make these visits a valuable learning experience as well, especially for our pediatric patients, who are beginning to learn the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene. To further reduce a child’s risk for developing cavities, we can also provide dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments.
For patients of all ages, we will perform a comprehensive examination, using advanced digital radiography, as needed, to diagnose any tooth decay or other conditions in their earliest stages. To treat a cavity, we gently and precisely remove the decay, then restore the tooth with a dental filling. Our office utilizes the latest generation of durable, tooth colored materials, which blend seamlessly with your smile for aesthetically pleasing results.
At Crowns Now Family Dentistry, we keep pace with the most advanced approaches to halt the onset and progress of tooth decay. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
Does your smile reflect how you feel inside? With porcelain veneers, the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry can transform the appearance of your front teeth to accentuate your appearance and give you the boost of confidence to thrive both socially and professionally. If you have aesthetic goals for yourself, we can help you achieve them – starting with the radiant, harmonious and dazzling set of pearly whites you’ve always wanted!
It’s no secret that your smile is often the first thing that’s noticed when you meet someone. With veneers, we can help ensure that you make just the right first impression. Whether you have major discoloration to your front teeth, minor chips, spacing, or misshapen teeth, our porcelain veneers can be customized to address all these issues and achieve outstanding results.
Designed as wafer-thin facings that are bonded atop the lightly treated surfaces of your front teeth, veneers are artfully sculpted to the shade, shape and proportions of your teeth to achieve optimal appearance and function. Fabricated from the highest grade of dental porcelain, veneers are stain resistant and reflect light in much the same way as natural tooth enamel for stunning results. Once bonded to the underlying tooth structure, veneers also become strong and durable. And, with proper care, they can last for many years.
The skilled professionals at the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry are diligent and attentive, and they value your input first and foremost. Over the years, we’ve helped countless patients achieve the most outstanding cosmetic results, and we welcome the opportunity to do the same for you. We’ll carefully assess your goals and determine the most appropriate way to proceed.

If you’re experiencing dental pain or discomfort of any measure, we’ll utilize the latest diagnostic techniques and imaging technology to determine the precise underlying source of your symptoms. According to a recent study, toothaches are considered the most common form of dental pain. That’s why if a tooth is bothering you, it’s best to consider it an emergency and plan to visit us for treatment as soon as possible. There are a wide range of possible underlying causes – from deep cavities and dental infections, to jaw disorders and impacted teeth.
In most instances, toothaches arise from a deep dental decay, which creates a hole in the tooth that exposes the underlying and more sensitive areas. To get you back on the road to oral health, we’ll gently and precisely remove the decayed and unsupported tooth structure and treat your tooth as needed to rebuild both its appearance and function. You can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands in our office.

If you’re among the estimated 15% of patients that avoid seeking the dental care they require due to fears or misconceptions about treatment, the compassionate team at Crowns Now Family Dentistry understands. We offer options in dental sedation to make the prospect of seeking care a whole lot easier. Our practice is committed to serving your oral healthcare needs while ensuring your comfort throughout treatment.
When people experience anxiety about the potential discomfort of dental treatment or visits to the dentist in general, they often choose a practice that offers options in dental sedation.
Sedation not only creates a feeling of calm and relaxation that lasts throughout treatment, but it also makes lengthy procedures feel like they’re over in just minutes. Furthermore, with methods of conscious sedation, you’re still able to respond to verbal cues from our dentist.
As the first step in care, before you undergo sedation, our office will carefully review your medical history as well as discuss any pre or post-op instructions. We’ll also address any questions you may have regarding treatment. Talk to our dentist about any fears and concerns before your appointment for dental work. We’ll recommend the type of sedation that suits the needs of your specific case.
You can rely on our experienced professional team to deliver the most precise and gentle treatment. Dental sedation facilitates a more comfortable and stress-free visit. Positive experiences help to eliminate negative associations with the dental chair, thereby making it easier to seek dental care the next time you need it.

The tongue has many more important functions other than just churning up the food in your mouth. It’s also an important component regarding complete oral health. While most people don’t associate tongues with cancer, the disease can indeed affect it.
That’s why at the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, our dental experts pay close attention to your tongue to ensure that it’s healthy. Of course, we also take superior care of your teeth and gums.
The most noticeable type of tongue cancer begins in the thin, flat squamous cells that line the tongue’s surface, where it may be more likely to be seen and felt. This type of tongue cancer tends to be diagnosed when the cancer is small and more easily removed through surgery.
But let’s put the topic of tongue cancer aside and focus on some interesting facts about this incredibly flexible and powerful muscle. When you’re done chewing a mouthful of food into particles, the tongue and saliva help turn the particles into masses known as bolus. The tongue then pushes the bolus into the esophagus, which is a tube that ends in the stomach.
If you’re one of those folks who live to eat instead of eat to live, know this: The tongue’s taste buds let you sample five taste components, which are sweet, sour, salty, bitter and savory. Rather than each components’ buds being placed in just one section, the buds are scattered throughout the tongue’s surface, with each taste being sensed equally well everywhere.
After you brush your teeth but before you rinse and spit, use your toothbrush to gently clean your tongue’s peaks and valleys. That’s where bacteria lurk and prosper.
At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, our compassionate and highly educated staff of professionals enthusiastically provide our patients with personal and superior care in all aspects of your oral health. Whatever your needs, call us today to schedule an appointment!
The sign of a great smile? Bright white teeth! These days, teeth whitening procedures have become a relatively easy way to instantly improve aesthetics, create a positive first impression, and achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance. At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, our trained staff is highly skilled in performing professional teeth whitening techniques to help you look your very best.
It’s no secret that life can do a number on the teeth. Despite your best efforts of brushing and flossing regularly, food, drink, advancing years, tobacco use — even some medications — can stain and discolor teeth, giving them an unattractive, yellowish brown appearance.
Professional teeth whitening performed by a dentist offers several advantages over OTC teeth whitening products: it’s easier and more convenient for the patient and produces better, more long-lasting results. The process is relatively simple and takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes to complete. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. Once the optimum shade has been reached, the teeth are rinsed, and a fluoride may then be applied to help ease any tooth sensitivity.
Keep in mind that whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, whitening will not work on caps, veneers, crowns or fillings. It also may not be as effective for darker tooth discolorations caused by certain medications or tooth injury. That’s why it’s important to speak with our dentist to see if the procedure is right of you.

People start losing their baby teeth when they are about 6 years old, with the final baby tooth falling out by 12. Considering that the average American lives until at least 75, that’s quite a long time to keep your teeth in good health. Oral health begins with clean teeth. Keeping the area where your teeth meet your gums clean can prevent gum disease, while keeping your tooth surfaces clean can help you stave off cavities and gum disease.
At the office of Crowns Now Family Dentistry, our experienced dentists are well equipped to provide you with the highest level of care to preserve and maintain your oral health. We utilize state-of-the-art knowledge and technology to plan and perform your care with the utmost precision.
