Above all else, we strive to provide care that is minimally invasive, and will last a long time. Any of the services we provide are done on a foundation of cavity prevention. The best dentistry cannot withstand poor home hygiene or a bad chemical environment. We exist only to help, so once you’re in our office, our only concern is getting you back to excellent oral health and function.
Dr. Victor Chaney started out his practice doing all of his own lab work for dentures and partials, start to finish. He continues to be an excellent resource for his patients. Dr. Alex Chaney brings the latest training and techniques on this vital service, and has the valuable experience of Dr. Victor Chaney to draw from. Together, they bring both experience and expertise to the table to continue a strong tradition of excellent prosthetics.
We strive to make dentures that look like natural teeth. Sometimes we use photographs to make dentures look like the original teeth that they are replacing. Sometimes we make them similar to the natural teeth, making corrections in some of the flaws, but leaving the "personality" of the original teeth.
New techniques involve using implants that have "snaps" that hold the denture in place. These are wonderful in helping a loose lower denture stay in place, have more chewing power and not cause soreness.
Implants are a fantastic way to replace a single missing tooth, several missing teeth, or help to secure a loose lower denture. We work with an excellent oral surgeon to place the implants, and then restore them in our office. Implants are rapidly changing in ease and scope, and more is possible than ever before.
We have many ways of replacing missing teeth, restoring decayed or broken down teeth, or improving the function and beauty of teeth. We offer the services of implants, bridges, and dentures.
Porcelain and ceramic crowns and bridges can appear like natural teeth. We also use gold where the appearance is not objectionable, for superior strength and durability.
For filling teeth, we can use time-tested silver amalgam for its strength and longevity, or composite-resin or porcelain for its beauty and resemblance to natural tooth structure. Gold is also available for extra durability.
From porcelain crowns, to porcelain veneers, to bonding, to bleaching, we have the techniques to make your smile more beautiful. Ask us for a consultation if you'd like to improve your smile
Nervous? Have you had an unpleasant dental experience? Sometimes Nitrous Oxide is perfect for making your experience easier. Although some of our more nervous patients find that this makes the visit more pleasant, many find that after a few visits they don't need it anymore. They realize that we have so many ways of treating teeth painlessly, and can then lose their fears and feel comfortable with dental treatment without the Nitrous Oxide.
Nitrous Oxide is a gas that you breathe through your nose. It does not put you to sleep, but rather makes you feel relaxed. It raises the "threshold of pain", meaning that you feel things less. Since we strive to have you feel no pain anyway, it is still useful for those who worry about what "might" happen, even though the pain may never come.
Since its effect is gone a short time after you stop breathing it, it is safe to drive home after appointments.
