NiteWhite Tooth Whitening involves a two step process. On your first visit, impressions will be taken of your teeth in order to assure a proper fit for the tray that will hold your whitening gel. On your second visit, you will be fitted for the tray, which you will take home with you. You’ll also be given instructions on how to use the whitening gel and how often you should use it.

Mouthguards are an essential preventative tool in Sports Dentistry. A properly fitted mouthguard can protect the teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue from sports-related injuries. The advantage of a custom-designed and fitted mouthguard over the inexpensive type found in drug stores and sporting goods stores is that the higher-grade vinyl provides the greatest degree of protection, absorbing shock from direct impact and reducing the risk of concussion.

Periodontal (Gum) Disease is the single most common cause of tooth loss in adults. Early diagnosis and professional treatment plays a major role in maintaining your overall dental health. Regularly scheduled cleanings and examinations are your best defense against Periodontal Disease.

Porcelain Veneers are thin, semi-translucent shells that are permanently bonded to your teeth. They can improve the quality of your smile if you have broken or chipped teeth, stains or discolorations, crooked teeth, and other conditions. If you are considering veneers, a consultation with Dr. Arita should be your first step. He will advise you on the procedure, as well as the care you will need to take of your new veneers.

Crown and Bridge Treatment can restore lost teeth and assist in supporting your remaining teeth. Special care is taken to match your new crown or bridge to your existing teeth so that you can chew properly without discomfort. Once again, the first step is a consultation, in which the procedures will be described to you in complete detail.

Dental Implants are a permanent replacement for lost teeth which can provide increased comfort and fit and a level of biting pressure comparable to that of your natural teeth. Anchors are surgically placed into the jawbone to provide support for replacement teeth. A thorough examination and consultation occurs prior to treatment, and post-surgery follow-up includes patient education on caring for your new implants.

Pit & Fissure Sealants can help prevent decay by creating a protective barrier which covers the chewing surfaces of back teeth. It is a preventative measure which is part of a total care process involving regular brushing and flossing, routine fluoride application, a balanced diet and regular dental checkups.

Replacement of Outdated Restorations can resolve issues that happen when wear, leakage, chips and cracks occur in old fillings and crowns. It is another preventative measure which can help maintain your overall dental health.
