No matter how comprehensive your dental care, cavities may happen. But that doesn’t mean we have to advertise them. As part of our commitment to smile design, Valo Dentistry uses composite fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Composite fillings provide an attractive and durable alternative to traditional metal fillings, resisting temperature extremes and breakage. Whether you need us to fill a cavity or replace old metal fillings, we can help. Your smile will be back to full function, looking and feeling great, in no time.
Crowns & Bridges
At Valo Dentistry, we take pride in smile design, providing a first-place level of care to help our patients look and feel their best. When it comes to crowns and bridges, however, we prefer to utilize ceramic-based materials comprised of zirconia, lithium, and silica — for a natural look that’s highly resilient. Whether you need a crown to cover damage to an existing tooth or a custom bridge to replace one or more missing teeth, our smile design team strives for perfect color match to restore your full dental health.
Like any winning team, the highly-trained professional staff at Valo Dentistry loves a challenge. For example, when patients have a particularly tough issue surrounding the restoration of dental implants, the periodontist sends them our way. Whether you’re getting an implant for the first time or looking to have previous work restored, Dr. Valo and his team can help. Implants can replace one or more existing teeth. Once the titanium implant is secured in place of a damaged root, our team will go about the creative work of designing the prosthetic, ceramic tooth to match your natural smile and setting it firmly in place.
Root Canal Treatment
It’s impossible to look and feel your best if you’re experiencing dental pain. At Valo Dentistry, we know the words root canal make patients nervous, but rest assured, we’ll handle these procedures with the care and compassion you’ve come to associate with our treatment. Dr. Valo’s treats most root canals in-house, first removing the infected pulp, then cleaning, sealing, and filling the tooth. Should an individual case be better suited for specialty care, following a thorough exam, we may refer you to a trusted associate. It’s our goal to preserve the natural tooth — and your natural smile — whenever possible, so we’ll talk with you to decide on the best course of action.
At Valo Dentistry, we ensure you receive the highest level of dental care possible. We’ll perform minor dental surgeries in-house, surrounding you with the team you’ve come to know as family. If you need more extensive care to restore you to full dental health, we’ll refer you to an associate we know and trust to ensure you look and feel your best.
According to the old saying, “a picture’s worth a thousand words”. At Dr. Valo’s office, we use digital photographs to get a complete and accurate picture of what’s going on with your dental health. Once our team has the information we need, we’ll talk with you to develop a course of treatment. Once you’ve received comprehensive care from our team, you can get back to taking our favorite kinds of pictures — the ones of you smiling bright.
