Our Dentist Services

Family Dentistry Services - Healthy Smiles

Comprehensive Exams - Every new patient receives a comprehensive exam to assess his or her smile, bite, TMJ function, bone height, and risk for disease. At return visits, we will also provide periodic exams that note changes from your first exam. This helps Dr. Visanescu pinpoint problems as soon as they begin to develop. The earlier the needs are addressed, the simpler the course of treatment can be!

Intra-oral Camerals - Dr. Visanescu loves to show patients what she sees when she examines your mouth. With our intra-oral cameras, she can! These small cameras can capture high quality images of the teeth or other areas of the mouth. The image is then placed on our in-room monitor to discuss findings with the patient. This empowers our patients to make educated choices regarding their oral health care.

Dental Hygiene - Preventive care catches problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease, when they’re still small. Your personalized check-up interval, which is usually six months, depending on your dental health, helps your dentist to protect you from problems before they become more serious.

Periodontal Therapy - Gum disease is the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults. Our periodontal therapy program helps halt and reverse gum disease, allowing our patients to keep their teeth longer. If you suffer from gums that bleed easily or are swollen, bad breath, or heavy tartar buildup, then you may have gum disease. A customized plan includes a deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar below the gum, with maintenance visits to help you overcome bone and tooth loss.

Mouthguards - One of the best ways to care for your smile is to prevent damage from happening in the first place. If you or your child play sports, a sports guard not only prevents dental trauma, it can also reduce the chance of a concussion. We also offer bite splints and night guards for patients who have problems with clenching and grinding. This prevents pain associated with TMJ disorder as well as premature wear of the teeth.

Oral Cancer Screening - Oral cancer can be a life-threatening disease. Pinpointing precancerous and abnormal tissues when they are small means treatment outcomes are more effective. You don’t have to smoke or be “at risk” in order to be diagnosed with the disease. Our dentist conducts an oral cancer screening during every exam.

Cosmetic Services - Get The Smile You Always Wanted

Porcelain Veneers - If you want a straighter, whiter smile, porcelain veneers are a wonderful option. Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that attach to the front of teeth to conceal chips, cracks, and other imperfections. They can also hide minor misalignment and help the smile look more symmetrical overall. Veneers require minimal reshaping of your existing teeth. With veneers, you can correct the appearance of teeth that are discolored or stained, chipped, crowded, gapped, short or misshaped.

Teeth Whitening - Everyone loves having a whiter smile. We can help naturally whiten our patients’ teeth by several shades in a short amount of time. Whiter teeth can take years off of a person’s smile by removing deep-set stain particles that gather over time. Our custom-made whitening trays and professional grade gels are just what you need for dramatic whitening results. You’ll wear your trays for an hour or two each day, and see complete results in 10-14 days.

Tooth-Colored Fillings - Tooth-colored fillings using natural resin materials blend in with your teeth and are an esthetically pleasing alternative to using silver fillings. Every filling is custom-shaded so that it matches your natural tooth color.

Dental Bonding - Dental bonding is a treatment used to conceal imperfections and give you a more beautiful smile. Dental bonding uses the same material used in tooth-colored fillings to cover stains, chips, cracks, and other imperfections. It is a process that can be completed in one visit, and the procedure is less expensive than porcelain veneers.

Smile Makeover - Your smile may be affecting your personal and professional life. When we look better, we feel and interact more comfortably and confidently with others. A non-pleasing smile can affect your emotional well-being as well as your health. Dr. Visanescu can perform a custom combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures to give you the smile of your dreams. Depending on your individual needs and goals, she may use teeth whitening, dental bonding, veneers, and more. Ask us to show you examples of our smile makeovers.

Tooth Recontouring - Uneven edges of the teeth can make teeth look irregular, or sized differently. By adjusting the contours of teeth, a smoother smile line can be achieved. You’ll be amazed at how easy recontouring can be, and the dramatic results it offers!

Porcelain Crowns - Ceramic crowns don’t have the unsightly metal understructure of traditional crowns. We offer both zirconia and newest E-Max crowns, so that your restoration looks just like your real tooth. Ceramic crowns are esthetically superior, as well as strong and durable.

Dental Implants - Losing teeth can feel devastating. Not only does tooth loss affect your smile, it also interferes with speech patterns and your diet. Thankfully, dental implants offer a stable, reliable method of tooth replacement that can last for a lifetime. The materials used in implants are strong, and encourage new bone formation around them, making them more stable than your natural teeth. If you’ve been considering dental implants but don’t know where to start, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Visanescu. We can answer all of your questions and guide you step-by-step should you decide implant therapy is the best option for you.

Restorative Services - Rebuilding Smiles

Tooth-colored Fillings - Tooth-colored fillings using natural resin materials blend in with your teeth and are an esthetically pleasing option to using silver fillings. Every filling is custom-shaded so that it matches your natural tooth color.

Inlays and Onlays - If your tooth is too badly damaged for a filling but doesn’t need a full-coverage crown, then an inlay or onlay is exactly what you need! These lab-manufactured restorations are customized to restore large portions of teeth while also maximizing the amount of healthy enamel that is still present.

Dental Crowns - Badly damaged teeth that have experienced large cavities or fractures can be very susceptible to damage during everyday use. Crowns are full-coverage restorations that protect the remaining portion of the tooth, as well as allow it to continue functioning normally. Dr. Janet Visanescu uses the newest materials which don’t have the unsightly metal understructure. We offer both zirconia and newest E-Max crowns, so that your restoration looks just like your real tooth.

Dental Buildups - Sometimes the tooth is so compromised, due to cracks, breakage, or decay, that retention to what is left of the tooth, can become an issue. In these cases, a buildup under the crown is indicated to provide a solid foundation for the crown to sit on. This is a separate and additional procedure to the crown and is highly recommended when necessary, since it can greatly increase the lifetime of the crown (since the fit and retention are enhanced).

Dental Bridges - Fixed dental bridges are permanent restorations that are used to replace one or two missing teeth. As long as healthy teeth are adjacent to the space, a bridge can be used. The bridge is similar to having crowns anchored onto these supporting teeth, with a false replacement crown suspended between them (“bridging” the open area.

Dental Implants - Losing teeth can feel devastating. Not only does tooth loss affect your smile, it also interferes with speech patterns and your diet. Thankfully, dental implants offer a stable, reliable method of tooth replacement that can last for a lifetime. The materials used in implants are strong, and encourage new bone formation around them, making them more stable than your natural teeth. If you’ve been considering dental implants but don’t know where to start, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Visanescu. We can answer all of your questions and guide you step-by-step should you decide implant therapy is the best option for you.

Custom Dentures and Partials - Custom removable dentures and partial dentures are an easy way to replace missing teeth all at one time. A partial denture is made when there is a gap of missing teeth. They can be made using a new-age material without metal clasps on teeth for a more natural smile. Custom full dentures are made when all teeth are missing. Dr. Janet Visanescu works closely with each patient to choose the most esthetic tooth size, color, shape, and placement of the teeth before processing. These appliances are worn in the day, and removed overnight.

Root Canals - Endodontic therapy is used to restore and preserve teeth that have experienced nerve damage or infection. The nerve tissue is removed from the tooth, and a filling material is placed into the nerve chamber. Dr. Visanescu treats most types of teeth right here in our office.

Full Mouth Restoration - Do you need a complete makeover of your mouth? Whether you have missing, broken, or decayed teeth, we can help. Your full mouth restoration treatment will get the function of your smile back, and look great at the same time. We’ll utilize tooth-colored materials that look natural as well as withstand everyday use.
