The Dental Services We Provide

In addition to addressing immediate problems such as a broken tooth, painful cavity, or a faded smile, at Dental Care of St. Joseph we are eager to help you with the kind of preventative care that will maintain your oral health and take care of minor issues before they develop into major problems. We believe this is the most effective way to achieve a bright, healthy smile while saving you time and money.

  • Teeth whitening treatments – Depending on your personal preferences and schedule, we offer a variety of teeth whitening methods that may be administered here at Dental Care of St. Joseph or in the convenience of your home
  • Dental procedures to fix damage to your teeth such as cavities, decay, or root canals
  • Dental restoration including crowns, bridges, or dentures to repair damaged or missing teeth
  • Correcting crowded or misaligned teeth with traditional braces or alternative methods such as Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign utilizes clear teeth aligners that are less noticeable than metal braces. They are also removable, making them an excellent choice for those who prefer versatility.
  • Emergency services to deal with damage from physical trauma, an aggravated abscess, or the pain of advanced decay

Innovative Dental Care Technology

Here at Dental Care of St. Joseph, we perform your dental services with state-of-the-art technology, such as the iTero Element scanner. The iTero Element produces extremely high-resolution, 3D images of your entire dental structure without the discomfort and time-consuming process of taking traditional x-ray photos and using dental impression putty (the dreaded "goo") to make a physical model. The iTero scanning process is painless, non-invasive, and completed in a matter of seconds. The Dental Care of St. Joseph dental team is then able to show you a 3D virtual model of your entire dental structure in its current condition as well as a side-by-side comparison with a simulation of your teeth's ideal spacing and alignment. The iTero Element allows your hygienists and dentist to provide your dental care with greater accuracy and efficiency while reducing the amount of time you spend at our office.

Crowns

A dental crown is a "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. A crown might be needed to protect a decayed tooth from more damage, to restore an already broken tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a severely discolored tooth. Crowns offer long-term durability, protection from decay and cracking, and an improved, natural appearance. A crown may be right for you if...

  • you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
  • you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
  • you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
  • you have a tooth that is severely discolored.

More information

Invisalign

Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth before they become a problem and to avoid a more complicated surgery. Whether your wisdom teeth have emerged or not, don't worry – we offer a variety of sedation to meet any need and ensure that your experience is comfortable and pain-free.
