Dr. Mark R. Sheils and our team offer a wide range of dental treatments. The following are only a selection of the complete suite of oral health services we routinely provide.

Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are designed to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile for decades. If you are missing one or multiple teeth, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. During the procedure, a non-removable bridge is anchored into place through the use of custom-made crowns. These crowns may then be fitted with teeth that have been tailored to perfectly match your natural smile. This procedure typically requires only two visits.
Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a versatile treatment most commonly used to restore a damaged or decayed tooth. In this procedure, a custom-made crown is fitted over an entire tooth, restoring its original shape and size. Porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of teeth, although gold crowns are also available. Dr. Sheils will help you to determine which type of crown is best for your smile.
Dental Fillings
A dental filling repairs minor to moderate tooth damage, restoring your tooth to its original structure and function. A filling may be appropriate when your tooth has been damaged by decay, chipping, or minor fracturing. Two types of dental are available: amalgam, which utilizes a combination of metals, and composite, which is made of synthetic resins. Dr. Sheils will help you to understand which type of filling best suits your smile.
Dentures are removable structures which replace multiple missing teeth. Whether you wish to replace several teeth or all of them, dentures are an effective method of restoring function, beauty, and health to your smile. We are happy to discuss whether complete or partial dentures might be suitable for your needs.
Endodontics is the study and treatment of the innermost layer of the tooth. If this area becomes injured or diseased, it often results in serious pain and sensitivity, and may ultimately require extraction. Endodontic treatment corrects such problems. Root canals are the most common type of endodontic treatment, where the dentist removes injured and infected tissues from the tooth, thoroughly cleans it, and then fills the cavity. A restoration such as a crown is then fitted over the affected surface area to protect the tooth for years to come.
Oral Surgery
Oral surgery covers a range of treatments which improve the function, health, and appearance of teeth and their surrounding structures. We strive to provide the most conservative treatments available but may advise oral surgery when it is necessary to correct certain conditions. Oral surgery includes tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, jaw surgery and bone grafts.
Periodontics treats conditions which affect the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Gum disease, which is also known as periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in plaque buildup. The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis, characterized by red, tender, bleeding, and swollen gums. If gum disease is not treated during this phase, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, which causes gum recession and tooth loss. If diagnosed and treated early, gingivitis can be controlled and reversed with additional cleanings and at-home care; if allowed to progress to periodontitis, more involved and frequent treatments may become necessary. We provide solutions for either phase of gum disease and can halt and reverse its progression.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The third molars, known as the wisdom teeth, are typically the last teeth to come in. Because of this, there is often insufficient room for wisdom teeth to grow correctly, causing them to come in at an incorrect angle or become impacted. Improperly grown in wisdom teeth can cause several problems such as misalignment, damage to neighboring teeth, tooth decay, infection and inflammation, cysts, and damage to the jawbone. We are well-versed in wisdom teeth removal and perform the surgery as painlessly as possible.
