We want to make your smile the best it can be! We specialize in quality dental care for your entire family. We offer a variety of services from general dentistry to cosmetic treatment.
Patients have the ability to watch movies on virtual reality glasses, or listen to music on an ipod during treatment. In addition, please let us know if we can offer you a blanket or neck pillow to make you feel at home. We are happy to provide these services for you!
Your protection, care, and comfort are our top priorities. Because of that, we meet or exceed the highest sterilization standards. All surfaces are cleaned and disinfected in the treatment room before you enter. Any non-disposable products we use, such as dental instruments, are sterilized. We also use a self-contained bottle water system to provide clean dental water lines.
We use composite restorations rather than silver mercury fillings to take care of your cavities! Dr. Hess enjoys helpings his patients create beautiful smiles to last a lifetime!

Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take the necessary radiographs (x-rays) for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the x-rays needed for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root.
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amont of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforseen pain or tooth breakage.
