Beginning with teeth loss, gum disease, periodontal disease, may eventually lead to serious health problems. In the early stages, known as Gingivitis, bacteria found in the plaque surround the mouths tissue and periodontal disease slowly begins to show its first symptoms. Thus, the result is swollen and bleeding gums that aid in excess accumulation of bacteria and an increase of sickness. If this symptom is spotted during its premature stages, the damage is reversed and your teeth quickly repair. If it is discovered in its later stages, necessary, effective cosmetic surgery will take place in order to restore your teeth to itâ€™s natural healthy condition. Contact our office today to learn more about periodontal therapy.
Made to look natural and smoothly fit, Crowns, also known as Caps, help to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. With the ability in providing support to damaged teeth, Crowns also aid in balancing function and esthetic features. With the insert of a crown, you can experience a dramatic improvement in your overall smile and make your teeth more resistant to injury. For your convenience, we at Miller Dentistry are able to mill your new crowns within an hour using our new advanced CEREC 3D Machine. Contact our practice for more information on Crowns, and how to improve your teeth today.
Hours and hours may be spent replacing and repairing crowns, veneers, and onlays. With our enhanced CEREC 3D, cosmetic dental work can be completed in just one appointment. During our procedure, high precision cameras photograph impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used by the CERED 3D in order to customize a personal and genuine replacement for you; imitating the accurate shading and color of your teeth. In no time, the machine inserts the restoration on the spot, and the new replacement is placed in. This entire procedure takes place in less than an hour!

Root Canals / Extractions
Every individual tooth includes a long, thin strand of dental pulp-in order to supply our nerves with the nutrients they need- which extends down to the toothâ€™s root. Any injury or infection that affects the pulp can cause the nerves to become injured, and eventually die. Without the aid of endodontic treatment, the tooth can, in most cases, die also. Thus, root canals are built to save damaged and inflicted teeth. Carried out under anesthesia, the procedure begins by drilling a gap into the center of the pulp chamber, where the disease is removed. Soon after, the gap is permanently coated with a gold, porcelain or colored crown. To learn more, contact Dr. Miller Dentistry.
During extreme and emergency cases, Doctors may extract a tooth in preparation to reconstruct a dentistry procedure, such as dentures. Contact Dr. Miller to have your particular situation evaluated.
At a high risk of contributing to a heart attack, stroke and high sugar level, Gum diseases are a major threat to your health. There are many steps to take to treat Gum diseases at different levels. During the early stages of this disease, we provide non-surgical treatment, the removal of tar and plaque from the gums. Using dental cleaning and deep cleaning help remove and scale the root of the disease. Taking medications and using gels help to decrease the spreading of the disease. Biting adjustment, construction of a custom bite guard, is also provided to help kill the bacteria caused by Gum disease.
At a higher level of stage, Surgical Treatment is available. Curettage, the removal of infected soft tissue lining the pocket, and Gingivectomy, the surgical removal of actual pockets, are many of the procedures provided to help eliminate the disease. In addition, Flap surgery and Bone grafts, used to replace bone destroyed by Periodontitis, are offered at our practice. To learn more, contact Dr. Miller Dentistry.
Dental Implants are installed by attaching artificial teeth to inserts fastened in the bone below the gum line. After the insert is placed in the jawbone, bone and gum begin to grow around it, holding the implant tightly in position. This allows the opportunity for a tooth to attach to the insert, resulting in a sturdy tooth that is visually no different than natural teeth. Call our practice to learn if implants are right for you.
A substitute for crowns, veneers have the ability to mask stains, hide chips, correct misalignment, and create uniformity. Made of thin and fitting material, Veneers slide over teeth and give a natural-looking customized mask. In as little as an hour, veneers can be customized and applied with CEREC 3D machinery. Veneers are long lasting and are very easy to reapply.
In areas of decay and rot, inlays and onlays fill the tooth to seal the cavity. Inlays, also known as indirect fillings, fit into the cavity while onlays are placed on the top of the tooth to build a rounded layer on the surface of a tooth. Indirect fillings differ to regular fillings; indirect porcelain fillings are shaped in a dental lab and are secured into place in a later visit. Fortunately, at Miller Dentistry, we have the ability to fill inlays and onlays and anchor them into place in one visit. Contact our office to learn more.

Bleaching is a quick noninvasive method to completely change the way your smile looks. Finally you can say good-bye to those unwanted stains and hello to a whole new way to shine.
There are two different methods of Bleaching.
- Power Bleaching – an in-office procedure that only requires a one hour appointment, but yields amazing results. Patients will be shades lighter at the end of their visit.
- Tray Bleaching – With this method a mold is taken of the patients mouth, and trays are made for the patient. Tray bleaching produces the same results as power bleaching, however the process to achieve the desired shade takes about 10 days as opposed to one hour.
What are Dental Veneers for?
Veneers are made out of a porcelain material and are used to alter teeth that may be chipped, worn, discolored or misaligned.
Several office visits are required to achieve the desired result, but as you can see by the pictures below, they are well worth the time. Call New Age Dental Care for a Free consultation!
