At Livewell Dental, it is our mission to provide you with a beautiful, healthy smile. Experience the Livewell difference for yourself. Here, your smile isn't just treated—it's celebrated.

At Livewell Dental, we believe that your smile should be a source of confidence and joy. With cosmetic dentistry, we are able to transform your smile into one that you can be proud of. This, in turn, can help to enhance your overall well-being and self-esteem.

One of the most transformative procedures in cosmetic dentistry is the "smile makeover". This comprehensive treatment plan is customized to your unique needs and can involve a range of procedures designed to improve the appearance of your smile. From whitening and reshaping to closing spaces and replacing teeth, a smile makeover at Livewell Dental truly embodies our commitment to personalized, patient-centered care.

Porcelain veneers (thin shells custom-made to cover the front surface of your teeth) are often a key component of a smile makeover. These veneers correct a variety of dental imperfections such as chips, cracks, or discoloration—creating a vibrant, natural-looking smile that radiates health and happiness.

Composite bonding is another valuable tool in our cosmetic dentistry toolbox. This procedure involves applying a tooth-colored resin to repair decayed, damaged, or discolored teeth. It's a quick, non-invasive way of restoring your smile's natural beauty.

Finally, there is gum contouring—an often-overlooked aspect of a radiant smile. If you're self-conscious about a "gummy" smile or uneven gum line, this procedure may be the perfect solution. With gum contouring, we can sculpt and balance your gums to accentuate your smile in a flattering way.

At Livewell Dental, we understand the power of a captivating smile. Cosmetic dentistry isn't just about looking good—it's about feeling good. We are here to help design you the stunning smile you deserve.

Restorative dentistry is a very important part of what we do at Livewell Dental. The aim of restorative dentistry is to restore the function, health, and aesthetics of your smile. To do this, we may choose from a variety of restorative procedures to craft you the perfect smile.

One of the cornerstones of restorative dentistry is porcelain crowns. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped dental replacement that is placed over a tooth to restore the tooth’s strength, shape, size, and overall aesthetic appearance. These porcelain crowns are meticulously designed to look and feel natural—blending seamlessly with your existing teeth while providing the strength and durability your smile needs. Whether you're dealing with a weakened, broken, or severely worn down tooth, a porcelain crown can help restore your tooth to its original glory.

Next are porcelain inlays and onlays. These differ from conventional fillings that are formed and set directly in the mouth. Instead, inlays and onlays are initially fabricated in a dental laboratory before they are fitted and adhered to an impaired tooth. With the use of porcelain, these restorative procedures not only address functional problems, but they also fit flawlessly with your natural teeth—maintaining the overall aesthetic look of your smile.

Porcelain bridges are another essential aspect of restorative dentistry. If you have one or more missing teeth, a bridge can fill that gap with artificial teeth. The bridge is anchored on either side with porcelain crowns, creating a stable and durable solution. A porcelain bridge not only improves the appearance of your smile, but it also restores your ability to chew and speak properly.

And of course, we can’t talk about restorative dentistry without mentioning dental implants. Implants offer a solution that is very similar to real teeth (being both natural-looking and durable). They are surgically placed into the jawbone, which provides a sturdy base for replacement teeth. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.

At Livewell Dental, we believe restorative dentistry is about more than just restoring your teeth. It's about restoring your confidence, your health, and your enjoyment of life's simple pleasures. We use the most advanced technology and techniques to ensure your restorations are of the highest quality, but what truly sets us apart is our commitment to personalized care. We take the time to understand your needs, your fears, and your dreams, creating a treatment plan that is uniquely yours.

Restorative dentistry is a journey, and at Livewell Dental, we are with you every step of the way. From our advanced, modern procedures to our personal, patient-focused approach, we strive to make your journey as comfortable and successful as possible. Whether you need a simple filling or a full mouth reconstruction, we are here to help.

At Livewell Dental, we believe in the power of a radiant smile. We invite you to rediscover your smile through the art and science of restorative dentistry.

In order to avoid repair and restorative services, it’s important to focus on preventative care and meeting your general dentistry needs. These include routine dental cleanings and exams.

Cleanings rid your teeth of plaque and tartar, preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Comprehensive dental exams help detect any issues early—when they're most treatable. Our team ensures these visits are not just beneficial for your oral health, but also comfortable and stress-free—enhancing your overall experience.

Another integral part of general dentistry is root canal treatment. Contrary to common misconceptions, root canals aren't a source of pain—they're a solution. When tooth decay or damage extends to the pulp of your tooth, a root canal treatment can effectively save the tooth—eliminating pain and preventing the need for extraction. Our team at Livewell Dental carries out this procedure with precision and gentleness, ensuring your comfort throughout the process.

Dental fillings, too, play a pivotal role in general dentistry. These help restore the integrity of decayed or damaged teeth, returning them to their normal function and shape. We use tooth-colored fillings that not only serve the practical purpose of restoring your teeth but also preserve the natural look of your smile.

At Livewell Dental, we view general dentistry as a partnership with our patients. We work together with you, combining our expertise with your goals to create a personalized treatment plan. Through our advanced, modern, and personal approach, we aim to provide you with the best dental services possible. Experience the Livewell difference and allow us to help you achieve a healthier, happier smile.
