Services

We offer a full range of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic services

Dental Exam

Cleanings, x-rays, and oral exam. Read more

Your Smiles Elevated journey begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and gums. Using a co-diagnostic model, together we create a customized treatment plan to meet your unique goals and needs. Your examination will include low radiation digital x-rays, intraoral pictures, and a complimentary oral cancer screening. We will then gently break up plaque and tartar below your gums. Our visit will culminate with a customized home care routine designed with your mouth in mind to help you maintain your smile between visits.

Veneers

A gorgeous new smile with expertly-crafted porcelain veneers. Read more

If your teeth appear dark, small, uneven, or chipped, porcelain veneers may be a great option. The best veneers are designed to mimic nature, so that everyone will notice your smile but won't know why.

Whitening

Tooth whitening can remove years of stain from your teeth in a single, one-hour treatment. Read more

Life sometimes takes a toll on your smile. Drinking coffee, tea, soda, or red wine, as well as smoking, can stain your teeth over time. We offer both Zoom and KOR whitening services that reverse even the most stubborn stains. Let’s put the sparkle back into your smile!

Botox®

Botox can treat a number of esthetic and functional concerns, from managing tooth grinding to softening fine lines and wrinkles. Read more

Tooth grinding, when not treated, can damage the teeth and restorations, create jaw pain and headaches, and contribute to bone loss and gum recession. Botox now provides a simple alternative treatment option for tooth grinding and associated jaw tension.

Gummy smiles, or display of excess gum tissue when smiling, are traditionally treated with aggressive surgical intervention, involving reduction of the bone around the teeth and crowning of the teeth. The application of just a few units of Botox now provides a noninvasive, quick, inexpensive and effective alternative, by relaxing the hyperactive lip muscles to a more esthetically pleasing position.

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, and their prevention and treatment is certainly a personal choice. If you find that the early signs of aging are becoming apparent on your face, you may consider adding Botox to your anti-aging routine.

Emergency

Chipped tooth? Filling came out? Toothache? Swelling? We’ll see you ASAP. Read more

Dental emergencies don't run on a schedule, and we understand that. When these problems arise, we will do our best to shift our schedule to get you out of pain STAT.

To properly evaluate your issue, we will complete a clinical exam along with an X-ray, to give you a clear understanding of what treatment is needed to have you feeling comfortable again.

Fillings

Say goodbye to the days of metal fillings and welcome in the age of modern, esthetic materials. At Smiles Elevated, we are a mercury-free practice! Read more

When you develop a cavity, we carefully remove the decayed area and restore the tooth with the highest quality tooth colored filling material. For larger cavities or perhaps a broken cusp, ceramic fillings may provide a more conservative option to full coverage crowns.

Implants

Whether you’ve lost a tooth or it was never there to begin with, dental implants provide an esthetic alternative to natural teeth. Read more

Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone to provide stable support for artificial teeth. If you lost a tooth long ago, you may first need some additional bone grafting to prepare the area for implants. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip, so you can feel more comfortable and confident about eating and speaking. After receiving implants, regular follow-up visits are a must.

Crowns

Crowns are full-coverage restorations used to cover a tooth that is weak and likely to break without reinforcement. Read more

Perhaps you have a large cavity that a filling can no longer fix, or bit into an olive pit and your tooth hasn’t felt the same. Maybe your tooth had a root canal or is discolored, but a veneer wasn’t an option in your case. A crown may just be the right solution!

Root Canals

If your tooth is severely decayed or infected, leaving you cringing in pain, root canal therapy can save your tooth and get you out of pain fast. Read more

If you are in pain, we will complete a full diagnostic workup to verify that your tooth is restorable and indeed needs root canal treatment. Dr.Wood works with many kids who don’t like shots, so she will get you out of pain in the most gentle way possible. Because let’s face it, adults don’t like shots either. Following the procedure, we will walk you through next steps so you are relaxed and ready to get back to normal activities.

Pediatric Dentistry

There is nothing Dr. Wood loves more than getting kids excited about brushing and looking forward to their next visit! Read more

She works with many kids and is passionate about helping parents come up with creative ways to get their kids to brush and prevent oral disease. If they do get a cavity, rest assured your kids won’t be screaming in pain and will actually feel proud of how well they did after their visit!

Extractions

Whether as a result of trauma or advanced periodontal disease, some teeth just cannot be saved. Our goal is to make goodbye as painless and forgettable as possible. Read more

Extractions don’t have to be traumatic. In fact, Dr. Wood is trained in advanced techniques to preserve as much bone and gum tissue as possible following tooth removal, so that you are in a good position for whatever tooth replacement option you choose. If you are anxious, we provide options to manage your jitters in advance, so you can focus on rest and recovery rather than the procedure itself.

Dentures

If you have lost some or all of your teeth, dentures may be a good solution. Read more

They can rest on your gums or snap onto dental implants inside the bone for increased stability. Whichever option works for your lifestyle and budget, modern dentures can look natural and beautiful.

Bridges

If you have lost a tooth and a dental implant won’t work in your particular circumstances, bridges provide an alternative solution. Read more

Bridges fit over your existing teeth and are fixed, semi-permanent fixtures that don’t require nightly removal. They are typically made of ceramic over metal or zirconia for those with metal allergies. Proper home care is essential to maintaining the health of the teeth and gums around your bridge.

Bad Breath

Bad breath got you down? We understand how uncomfortable and embarrassing this may feel and will help you figure out the cause and solution to the issue. Read more

Most bad breath results from poor oral hygiene, but may also be caused by gum disease and other medical conditions. If your home care needs some tweaking, we will coach you on proper brushing and flossing techniques and tongue scraping, and arrest any gum disease. We will also make recommendations for products to help prevent odors and provide physician referrals if medical conditions are the culprit.

Scaling and Root Planing

Some patients require more than routine preventative tooth and gum cleaning. Read more

If it has been a few years since your last dental cleaning, your gums are bleeding while you floss, your teeth have shifted, or you have noticed your breath just won’t stay fresh, these are signs that a deep cleaning may be in order. Deep cleanings remove bacteria and tartar buildup from under the gums to arrest the disease process and promote healing.

Night Guards

If you clench or grind your teeth, a customized night guard can help protect your teeth and restorations from chipping and cracking. Read more

If you are involved in high-impact sports, an athletic guard may also help protect your teeth from trauma while you train.

Sleep Apnea Appliances

If you snore, wake up often, or were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, a sleep appliance may help you and your loved ones get better rest. Read more

We routinely screen all patients for obstructive sleep apnea, so if you show signs of this condition, we will walk you through proper testing procedures and treatment. If you have already tried using a CPAP machine and could not tolerate it, a sleep appliance may be a great alternative.
