Restorative Dentistry

Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are made out of composite materials that blend with your tooth making it blend with your natural tooth structure.  Composite fillings can bond directly to the tooth which means that less tooth is removed to place the filling.

Tooth colored crowns

Dental crowns restore damaged or decayed teeth and protect them for years to come. Most crowns are all-porcelain or a white metal called zirconia which provide a natural look.

Fixed bridges

Dental bridges are a great alternative to removable partial dentures. A fixed dental bridge is permanently cemented to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. So, you don't have to worry about using messy denture adhesive or have to be embarrassed about having to remove your teeth. Fixed dental bridges can also be used with implants which provides a natural look and feel to your smile.

Periodontal care

Do your gums bleed when you floss? Do you have red or swollen gums? Gum disease is an infection that eats away at the bone and gums around your teeth.

 

Patients who have an even greater risk of gum disease are those that smoke, are diabetic, have heart disease, history of a stroke, family history or are pregnant.

Cosmetic dentistry

 

An attractive smile makes a great first impression and can give you self-confidence as well. Dr. Foster provides high quality esthetic choices when it comes to providing dental care for you and your family.

Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth is one of the easiest and most effective ways to give yourself a youthful smile. Professional whitening can give you the results you want to get a young and healthy looking smile.

Veneers

Do you have teeth that are severely discolored, chipped or misshapen? Are your teeth crowded or have spaces? In just 2 visits, veneers can instantly change your smile to the smile you have always wanted!

Orthodontic Treatment

It's never too late to start straightening out your smile. In most cases, you can have an attractive smile in less than 12 months. Dr. Foster offers Invisalign® which is a revolutionary teeth straightening system that will give you the smile you have always wanted in life.

Sedation dentistry

 

Dr. Foster is known for her caring and gentle chair side manner. Our office also offers pillows, blankets and encourages patients to bring headphones and music to help create a relaxing environment. When relaxing amenities aren't enough we offer sedation dentistry for children and adults to get the treatment you need in a way that you need it.

Emergency dental care

Do you have a toothache? Pain in your jaw? A loose, knocked out or broken tooth? We can help!

Dr. Foster and her team offer same day emergency dental care which gets you the care you need quickly!

Orthodontic Care

Straighten your smile

Straight teeth give you a confident healthy smile. Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, which can improve your overall oral health, and properly aligned teeth can help alleviate or prevent TMJ pain.

 

Invisalign ®

It is never too late to have straight teeth. Dr. Foster successfully corrects spacing, crowding, overbite, open bite, underbite and crossbite with Invisalign.

 

Why Invisalign?

Clear aligners are nearly invisible

Smooth comfortable plastic aligners

Aligners are removable for easy cleaning

Eat whatever you want

Most cases take less than one year to complete

Low pressure movements which make them more comfortable than braces

Invisalign can be obtained with low monthly payments

Retainers

Did you have a retainer but it doesn't fit, or it is lost or damaged? We make retainers, which are a simple solution to keep your teeth from shifting. Give us a call today! It only takes a few minutes to get started on making your new retainer.

Let us give you the smile you have always wanted with Invisalign! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Foster to get started with your new smile!

Sleep Apnea Care

Do you snore loudly?

Are you tired throughout the day?

Has anyone noticed you gasping/choking or pauses in breathing while you sleep?

We can help!  Dr. Foster provides dental appliances that treat obstructive sleep apnea so you can get a good night’s sleep.  The following questionnaire provides a risk assessment based on several factors.  If you have concerns, we will provide you with the best options for restoring you to healthy, restful sleep.
