General Dentistry

Routine examinations and x-rays are necessary to identify potential dental and medical problems such as gum disease, bone loss, strokes, heart disease, infection, and many other issues. In office salivary DNA and genetic susceptibility testing allows your dentist to identify problems that you won’t find at home with a toothbrush and a bathroom mirror.

The treatment for tooth decay is a filling. There are multiple options for filling material, but the most common are amalgam (silver) and composite fillings.
Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are a popular choice for patients wanting to maintain a natural look. The composite material is matched to the natural color of your teeth, making composite fillings virtually invisible. Composite material is durable and typically involves removing less of the tooth than is required for amalgam fillings. Composite fillings may also be used for chipped or broken teeth and filling gaps between teeth.

Root canal therapy is a dental treatment used to repair and save a tooth that has been infected due to decay or cracking. Teeth that have been injured and compromised can also be treated with root canal therapy to maintain function and longevity.
A root canal involves the removal of the pulp of the tooth. The pulp contains connective tissue, nerves and blood vessels. The advantage of a root canal is that it enables you to keep and use your tooth. Signs that root canal therapy may be needed are:
• Severe tooth pain while chewing
• Pain that wakes you up at night
• Teeth that are sensitive to hot or cold
• Discoloration or darkening of the tooth
• Swollen gums in the area of the infected tooth
We know the mention of a root canal can raise anxiety in many patients. That is why Illumination Dentistry is dedicated to the comfort and care of all our patients. Our team of friendly dental technicians and staff is dedicated to making your procedure as stress-free as possible.

Crown lengthening removes gum and bone tissues, exposing more of the tooth to allow room for the new crown. Crown lengthening is sometimes also a cosmetic procedure option for patients with a “gummy smile,” which means you have too much gum tissue around your teeth.

A gingivectomy, commonly known as gum contouring, gingival sculpting, or gum reshaping, is a cosmetic dental procedure that reshapes the gumline. The treatment improves your smile by changing the look and shape of your gums and teeth.

Scaling and root planing is the process of smoothing out the root surfaces of the teeth by removing hard calculus deposits and debris from below the gums. A dentist or hygienist will perform the SRP using special hand instruments, an ultrasonic scaler, or a combination of both.

Oral Surgery Services

Oral Surgery

– Simple Tooth Extraction:
In a simple extraction, the dentist loosens the tooth with an instrument called an elevator. Then, using dental forceps, the dentist removes the tooth. This procedure is generally done under a local anesthetic and is typically used for visible teeth that are fully erupted from the gum line.

– Surgical Tooth Extraction:
Surgical extraction is a more complex procedure that is used for teeth that may be broken at the gum line or haven’t erupted in the mouth. The dentist will make a small incision into your gum to surgically remove the broken tooth or impacted wisdom tooth. In some cases, removing bone around the tooth or cutting the tooth itself may be necessary. It may require general anesthesia or sedation, in addition to local anesthesia. After the surgery, stitches might be necessary to help the healing process.

A dental bone graft is a procedure performed to increase the amount of bone in a part of the jaw where bone has been lost or where additional support is needed. Bone may be taken from elsewhere in the body and surgically fused to existing bone in the jaw. Sometimes, synthetic bone material is used.

Oral cancer screening is an examination performed by a dentist or doctor to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure. Most dentists perform an examination of your mouth during a routine dental visit to screen for oral cancer. Some dentists may use additional tests to aid in identifying areas of abnormal cells in your mouth. No single oral exam or oral cancer screening test is proved to reduce the risk of dying of oral cancer. Still, you and your dentist may decide that an oral exam or a special test is right for you based on your risk factors.

prosthetic Dental Care Services

Prosthetic Dental Care

Dental crown is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth to strengthen it, to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. These are used to protect a weak tooth, replace a large filling and in covering a dental implant.

A dental bridge is a dental restoration procedure used to replace one or more missing teeth. It’s named so because it literally bridges the gap where teeth are missing. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (known as anchoring teeth or abutment teeth) and a false tooth/teeth in between (known as pontics). These false teeth can be made from different materials such as gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by either natural teeth or dental implants. It not only helps restore the aesthetics of your smile, but also ensures proper function of the teeth and prevents remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture). However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics). Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Implant Dentistry Services

Implant Dentistry

1. Placing the Dental Implant: The implant, which is a titanium post, is placed in the bone socket of the missing tooth. This procedure involves local anesthesia. The implant is left to heal and integrate with the bone, forming a solid foundation for the replacement tooth. This process is called osseointegration and may take several weeks to months.

2. Abutment Placement: Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment is attached to the implant post. The abutment serves as a connector between the implant and the replacement tooth. In some cases, the abutment is placed at the same time as the implant.

3. Placing the Artificial Tooth: Lastly, a crown, which is the artificial tooth, is placed on the abutment. This tooth is customized to match the patient’s natural teeth.

Sleep Dentistry Services

Sleep Dentistry

A dental device for snoring, also known as a mandibular advancement device (MAD), is a type of oral appliance used to treat sleep apnea and snoring. This dental device looks similar to a mouth guard used in sports, but it works by moving the lower jaw forward and slightly downward to keep the airway open while you sleep, which reduces the likelihood of the tongue and throat tissues blocking the airway to cause snoring.
The device is usually made of plastic and can be custom-fit by a dentist based on an impression or a 3D scan of your teeth to ensure comfort. Some of these devices also offer adjustability so that you can modify the extent of lower jaw protrusion to optimize the effectiveness. Dental devices for snoring are often used as an alternative to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment, especially for those who find wearing a mask throughout the night uncomfortable.

– A veneer and a crown are both dental restoration procedures that can improve the appearance and function of your teeth, but they have significant differences.

– A veneer is a thin shell usually made of porcelain or composite resin that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. It’s primarily used for cosmetic improvements, such as: correcting teeth that are discolored, chipped, slightly misaligned, or have gaps. The application of veneers is a less invasive process as it requires only a small amount of tooth enamel to be removed.

– On the other hand, a crown is a cap that covers the entire tooth. It is used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes, such as protecting a weak or damaged tooth, covering a dental implant, or improving the appearance of a discolored or misshapen tooth. The application of a crown involves a more extensive process where more tooth structure is removed to allow the crown to fit over the tooth.

– In summary, while both veneers and crowns can improve the appearance of your teeth, the choice between the two would depend on your individual dental needs, the condition of your teeth, and your dentist’s recommendation

Orthodontic dental Services


Similar to traditional braces, aligners work by exerting gentle pressure to gradually straighten teeth over a period of time. Made from a transparent plastic material these aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over the teeth, gradually shifting them into the desired position.                                          Clear aligners are virtually invisible making them a discreet choice for those who wish to improve their smile without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.  They are removable and offer a comfortable and convenient alternative to traditional braces.
