Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth which lies at and above the gum line. They encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth. It essentially becomes the new outer surface in your smile.

They now mainly utilize porcelain, which is very lifelike in appearance, plus porcelain crowns do not discolor the gum line, as previous materials used in crowns do.

Oral Sedation Dentistry


Many people are afraid of going to the dentist. Dr. Grant addresses the fear you have, whether from past experiences or severe phobias, by enabling a safe state of relaxation. Foregoing dental treatment is extremely detrimental to your entire health and may result in needing more invasive, painful and expensive treatment later on.

Oral sedation works by providing a deep state of relaxation. Patients need a companion to escort them to and from their appointment. True relaxation is achieved by taking a pill upon arrival. After taking the pill, you are still able to communicate, though you are completely at ease, plus you enjoy a significantly lower sensation of pain, enabling routine or extended dental treatments.

Teeth Whitening


Our local Idaho dentist will recommend teeth whitening as a safe simple, and low cost procedure used to lighten and brighten discolored teeth. Dentists have found teeth become discolored for several reasons. The most common reasons for discoloration is due from extrinsic or external staining. Staining or yellowing occurs from age, tobacco, alcohol, coffee, tea, medications, chemically-induced stains, excessive fluoride, accidents, trauma, and decay. Unfortunately teeth whitening is not effective in whitening existing crowns or porcelain veneers.

Periodontal Treatment


Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a very common dental problem. It is essential to get treatment for gum disease as early as possible. If left alone, this problem only progresses.

Signs and symptoms of periodontal disease are noticeable without a visit to the dentist. You could see redness and swelling in the gums, gum recession, and/or soreness while brushing your teeth. Although you may notice many of these signs yourself, it’s smart to get a thorough exam from a dental professional. We can identify signs that might be hard for you to notice, such as subtle swelling, and will determine how much the disease has progressed.

Dental Bonding/White Fillings


You want a beautiful, strong smile. Dentistry with non-metal fillings offers a viable alternative to unattractive metal fillings. Tooth-colored resins are also called composite fillings. Composites, if placed with exacting technique, such as rubber dam isolation and modern bonding agents, get as close as possible to restore the tooth to its original strength in the most conservative fashion. The composites are a very hard “resin” which bonds to the tooth, holding it together Tooth bonding is designed to restore the natural appearance of teeth, such as correcting gaps, cover spots, chips, and discolorations and restoring cavities. If your condition applies, it may also help to repair fractures and re-shape teeth. Bonding can often be completed in a single visit and can significantly change the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve a look you’ve always wanted. Thanks to advances in modern dental materials and techniques, dentists have more ways to create pleasing, natural-looking smiles. Patients in our office have several choices when it comes to selecting materials to repair missing, worn, damaged or decayed teeth.
