Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry offers a variety of services ranging from general dentistry to full mouth restoration with All-On-X Dental Implants. In addition to a wide range of services Dr Hepworth and Dr Sherman offer the latest in dental technology. Combined, their expertise and use of technology create a patient’s experience that matches the patient’s expectation. Explore the following services and technology designed to deliver the perfect smile.

Dental cleanings and exams: Dr Sherman, Dr Hepworth and their staff all work as a team to schedule your dental cleanings and exams every six months. Prevention is the one word that describes the importance of regular dental cleanings and exams. Dental cleanings and exams are the foundation of oral hygiene. Expect the following results after a dental cleaning and exam with the staff of Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry. 

  • Prevention of cavities through X rays 
  • Prevention of cavities through removal of tartar (dental calculus) accumulated on teeth and gum lines
  • Prevention of tooth loss as a result of cavities prevented
  • Prevention of yellowing and other stains that otherwise hide a bright, white smile
  • Prevention of bad breath 
  • Prevention of overall bad health. Studies link some cancers, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes to a lack of dental cleanings and exams

Composite dental fillings: In keeping with the commitment to technology Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry only uses composite dental fillings. As a result this is not your “father’s dental filling.” Instead of the gray colored metal fillings (amalgam fillings) that may have mercury or other metals Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry only uses tooth colored composite for fillings and cracks in the enamel of your teeth. As a result you will feel and see amazing results to include:

  • Less drilling is required. As a result of less drilling the potential for further damage to a tooth is reduced.
  • Composite dental fillings harden within a few seconds. 
  • When cracks and chips occur in a tooth composite dental fillings not only covers the cracks and chips but also leaves the tooth stronger and whiter
  • Unlike older, metal fillings, composite dental fillings are less sensitive to hot or cold foods that enter the mouth. 
  • Should further damage occur to a composite dental filling repair is much easier. Damaged metal fillings often require additional drilling and oftentimes the removal of the entire filling.

Dental crowns: Another word for a dental crown is a dental cap. The cap, or crown is placed over a tooth that has been damaged for a variety of reasons such as:

  • A tooth repaired by a root canal or endodontically 
  • Replacement of an older crown that has broken or worn out
  • Used to cap an installed dental implant
  • Improve the appearance of a worn or unattractive tooth

Full composite veneers: Once again full composite veneers highlight Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry’s commitment to technology. Unlike porcelain, full composite veneers do not require the removal of enamel from your teeth and are usually created in one visit, giving you a perfect smile as you walk out the door.   

Full composite veneers can correct the following cosmetic dentistry problems:

Teeth whitening treatment: A bright, white smile is a happy smile. In the office or at home teeth whitening treatment is available through Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry. 

Teeth can lose their natural whiteness to any of the following reasons:

  • Stains from coffee, tea, or soda
  • Poor oral hygiene habits
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Illness
  • Certain medications
  • Fluorosis (overexposure to fluoride at a young age)
  • Natural aging process

Tooth extractions: Sometimes it is just one tooth that needs dental attention. Whereas Dr Sherman and Dr Hepworth do everything they can to save a tooth, sometimes extraction in necessary for the following reasons:

  • Your tooth is too severely damaged from decay
  • Severe infection with damage from the tooth and supporting bone
  • Crowded teeth resulting in the need for removal of a tooth
  • Learn more about tooth extractions here

Wisdom teeth removal: Usually between the ages of 17 to 21 we see the growth of wisdom teeth. Most mouths have 28 teeth and with the addition of wisdom teeth the mouth now has to make room for 32 teeth. The wisdom teeth become necessary for removal when any or all of the following conditions occur:

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Cyst
  • Tumors
  • Damage to neighboring teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Treatment for braces or dental care

Dr Sherman and  Dr Hepworth routinely remove wisdom teeth at Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry. Learn more about wisdom tooth removal here

All-On-X Dental Implants: When you are missing all or many of your teeth along the dental ridge you may be in need of All-On-X Dental Implants. 

The loss of teeth can create some of the following complications:

  • The ability to bite or chew is impeded or lost
  • Your appearance declines
  • Jawbone can shrink due to bone loss
  • Overall quality of life can suffer

If you are experiencing one or all of the above complications, set an appointment through Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry for a free dental implant exam. Dr Hepworth or Dr Sherman will outline a treatment plan that restores your smile with All-On-X Dental Implants.  Read more about All-On-X Dental Implants here

Full-mouth reconstruction: Full mouth reconstruction combines several different dental treatments to restore your dental health to full strength. Any of the following dental problems may make you a candidate for full mouth reconstruction:

  • Chipped, cracked, fractured, or broken teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
