From routine cleanings and fillings to nightguards, ClearwaterSmiles is equipped to handle your dental needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page:
Digital Panoramic Xray
We have a state of the art digital panoramic Xray machine which can help us view both your upper and lower jaws in about thirty seconds. Our digital panoramic allows us to reduce the number of inside the mouth Xrays and helps us minimize your exposure to radiation.
Digital Inside the Mouth Xrays
Our digital inside the mouth sensors allow very fast, comfortable Xrays which have greatly reduced radiation when compared to conventional dental Xrays. For your protection, we use full lead aprons with collars to protect thyroid exposure.
Cleanings and Non-Surgical Treatment of Gum Issues
Our Registered Dental Hygienist Tracy has been with Dr. Williams for over twenty years and consistently receives rave reviews on her excellent cleanings. For patients with gum issues, Tracy provides thorough deep cleanings. Dr. Williams then uses his LASERs to disinfect the pockets caused by gum disease. Antibiotic powders(Arestin) and gels(Atridox)are applied locally to help keep bacteria levels low.
We make custom, take home whitening mouthpieces for each individual patient which are very affordable. If you would like to have your teeth whitened quickly, Dr. Williams can brighten your smile in about an hour with LASER technology.
Tooth Colored(White) Fillings
Dr. Williams uses modern tooth colored composites to fill cavities or replace silver fillings. Attractive tooth colored fillings bond to and reinforce existing tooth structure.
LASER Treatment of Small Cavities
Some small cavities or worn areas of teeth can be treated with Dr. Williams' dental LASER without the need for numbing(anesthesia).
LASER Treatment of Canker and Cold Sores
Dr. Willams' LASER can be utilized to reduce the discomfort of canker and cold sores. In some cases LASER treatment may reduce the healing time of the canker or cold sore.
Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
We specialize in attractive tooth colored crowns and bridges. We offer all ceramic(all porcelain) crowns which are more cosmetic and for patients who prefer a non-metal option for their crowns.
Thin and strong porcelain veneers(facings) can be bonded to front teeth to correct coloration, unesthetic shapes, chips and gaps. The advantage of veneers is that a minimal amount of natural tooth substance is removed.
Implant Crowns, Bridges and Dentures
Dental implants can be placed by our nearby, experienced implant surgeons for a natural replacement of missing teeth. Advantages of implant crowns is that there is no need to grind down adjacent teeth for a bridge and they can be flossed just like your existing teeth. Loose lower dentures can be snapped in and secured with dental implants.
Dentures, Partial Plates, Relines and Denture Repairs
We welcome patients with denture and partial plate needs. Dr. Williams has extensive experience with fabrication of dentures and partials. Relines and repairs to dentures and partials can often be completed within the same day when properly scheduled.
Nightguards and Biteguards
Many of our patients have issues with grinding or clenching their teeth which can cause problems with their TMJ jaw joints, jaw muscles and teeth. We can provide you with comfortable, clear plastic biteguards which can help reduce stress on your joints, facial muscles and teeth.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation(Laughing Gas)
Nitrous Oxide gas is available to help alleviate anxiety over dental treatment. The beauty of nitrous oxide is the sedative effect goes away within minutes after switching to oxygen. No need to have a designated driver for your dental appointment!
