Google Review April 2017
Dr. Nam and her staff are amazing. I just got back from getting a filling. This is only my second filling ever, and my first filling (from a different dentist) was an awful experience. Dr. Nam was super understanding of my apprehension and she and her staff handled my appointment so so well. I am trying to spread the word as far as possible how great my experience was! I am NOT a fan of the dentist and now I think for the first time ever, I don't have to dread going anymore. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!!!
Yelp Review Nov 2016
Best dentist ever!! They provide the kind of care you would expect if you were suffering from a serious illness. They are extremely attentive to each individual tooth and explain exactly what is going on. They are better than I would have ever expected. I wish every health care provider was so thorough!

Dentistry As Unique As You Are
During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.
Dental implants play an essential role in restorative dentistry. Because they are permanent prosthetics that are both natural-looking and cosmetically appealing, implants can be used either for cosmetic purposes or for complete full-mouth restorations.
When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available is composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.
A crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure. There are various types of crowns, ranging from full porcelain to full metal crowns.
Crowns may also be used to securely attach a bridge if the structure of the surrounding teeth is inadequate.
A bridge is a dental appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are designed to be cosmetically appealing and to restore proper occlusion. Like crowns, bridges are fully customizable and made of various materials, including porcelain and metals. Although not as permanent as a cap, bridges are bonded to the surrounding teeth and only removable by a dentist.
Both crowns and bridges are created to match the color, height, texture, and overall appearance of your teeth. Most crowns and bridges will last for life, eliminating the need to replace them unless they fall out or become loose
A professional dental cleaning allows us to remove plaque and tartar that has built up above and below the gum line. A professional dental cleaning is generally performed during your general checkup.
Scaling and root planing are additional non-surgical procedures for removing hardened plaque and tartar from the mouth. This second procedure targets deeper pockets affected by bacterial buildup.
Performed under local anesthesia, we will scrap clean affected areas above and below the gum line (scaling) and will smooth the root of any hardened bacteria (planing).
Both of these procedures target the bacteria that if left untreated, can lead to gum/periodontal disease.
Veneers and Laminates are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost tooth structure where indicated.
Inlays and Onlays are lab-made restorations that are placed on teeth when the cavity or lost tooth structure is too large to be restored by a simple filling. The process of making an inlay is very similar to a crown. After the tooth is prepared, it is cemented or bonded to the tooth.
Every tooth consists of three different layers. The outermost and hardest layer is enamel, and the second layer is dentin. The third is pulp, which is the cavernous space where the live tissue and nerve of each tooth is located.
If for any reason the pulp space is exposed to the outside, the tissue becomes contaminated and eventually infected. The exposure of pulp happens in many circumstances, such as when you have a large cavity or a fractured tooth. Root canal treatment is the process of going inside the pulp space and removing the infected, dead tissue. The space is then disinfected and sealed with special materials
