A Beautiful Smile is Something to Share
You'll never get a second chance to make a first impression. Recent research shows that people with a sensational smile are viewed as more friendly, confident, and successful. Dr. Hamm and our team want to give you the smile of your dreams. We'll make the inner you shine through your smile with advanced cosmetic dentistry and esthetic restorations.
Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Made of fine, layered porcelain that reflects light like natural tooth enamel, porcelain veneers can eliminate chips, stains, cracks, gaps, or misaligned teeth.
Lumineers are a brand of veneers that require little to no reduction of natural tooth enamel. While Lumineers are not right for every case, they provide a conservative, quality option for some patients.
In-Office and Take-Home Teeth Whitening
You will be amazed how a brighter smile will turn back the clock to make you look young, vibrant, and healthy. Whether you choose to whiten your teeth at home with our custom-fitted mouth trays or have it done here at the dental office, you will love the age-defying effect!
Cosmetic Bonding & Contouring
Bonding is the application of tooth-colored resin to close gaps and repair chips or broken teeth. Contouring is used to reshape tooth structure and reduce sharp or jagged edges.
Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are the most natural looking and feeling option to replace missing teeth. Dr. Hamm will work with a trusted periodontist or oral surgeon to ensure that your new smile will serve you well for years to come.
The days of dark fillings are gone. Dr. Hamm will maintain your natural, white smile by correcting tooth decay with composite resin, tooth-colored fillings.
Porcelain crowns provide a natural-looking, durable solution to repair damage such as cracks, chips, or extensive tooth decay.
If you are uncertain which procedures will deliver the gorgeous, strong, healthy smile you want to achieve, come in for a smile analysis. Dr. Hamm may suggest a custom combination of esthetic and restorative procedures. Her decades of experience designing beautiful smiles along with her proficiency in the most up-to-date techniques will ensure your makeover is nothing short of breathtaking.
General Smile Maintenance
Cari Free – Fight tooth decay the easy way
The Cari Free products provide evidence-based solutions incorporating the most current research. Easy to follow instructions will make treating the caries infection and fighting cavities simple!
Checkups & Hygiene
Based on your individual needs, we will recommend how often to visit Dr. Hamm and our hygienist for a thorough oral checkup and teeth cleaning. Regular visits allow us to detect problems in the earliest phases, when conservative therapy is an option.
Crown & Bridgework
To replace one or more missing teeth in a row, we use esthetic bridgework that looks and feels natural.
Gum Disease Therapy
Gum disease is serious business. It causes most of the tooth loss in American adults and has been linked to health conditions, including stroke, heart attack, and Alzheimer's disease. Our hygienist provides non-surgical periodontal therapy to stop, reverse, and prevent gum disease - so you can have a sensational smile for years to come!
Teeth Grinding Relief
People who suffer with TMJ dysfunction or stress may grind their teeth, and this condition is known as bruxism. Teeth grinding will cause many problems and can contribute to oral pain and tooth wear. A simple, custom-fitted appliance will stop nighttime or daytime grinding.
If your mouth needs multiple restorative procedures or extensive dental work, Dr. Hamm will create a full-mouth reconstruction plan designed to give you the strong, healthy smile you deserve.
Who is a candidate for this treatment? Invisalign is tailor made for late teens and adults. It works on almost all standard ortho problems. No brackets, no bands and no elastics. Only very thin and clear aligners that pop in and out in seconds. Faster and gentler than traditional braces and will not leave permanent marks on your teeth like brackets can do. In most cases the treatment time is usually 9 to 18 months.
Incessant, loud and obnoxious snoring. A new appliance called Somnodent has revolutionized airway management. This is a non-surgical approach to snoring and is effective in over 90% of snoring cases. It is also effective in treating mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea. It consists of a simple appliance that fits over both upper and lower teeth and by protruding the lower jaw slightly, can open airways that when collapsed, cause snoring. The appliance is a godsend to the spouses and loved ones of the dreaded snorer. You are in for a real treat: Silence!!!!

A strong, healthy, attractive smile can give you the self-confidence to pursue your social and professional goals. Because modern dentistry is more comfortable and efficient than ever, we can give you the smile you've always wanted - comfortably and quickly, with results that will stand the test of time.

With intraoral cameras, we can take a video or picture of your mouth and show you our findings on a monitor.
Chairside monitors allow Dr. Hamm to share digital X-rays and images with you.
Because we value your safety and believe in accurate diagnoses, we have invested in a digital X-ray system. It emits about 80% less radiation than traditional systems and provides immediate, detailed, digital images.
To show you what your smile could look like after cosmetic or full-mouth treatment. Digital imaging is like a glimpse into the future!
We use laser cavity detection, DIAGNOdent, to find cavities in the earliest stages. By treating cavities early, we can reduce your potential for extensive decay, pain, and expense.
Our entire team follows the guidelines set by OSHA and the Center for Disease Control. We take continuing education in sterilization procedures to remain at the forefront of safety for your optimal health and total peace of mind.

Your Health is Our Goal
Dental disease and tooth loss has been linked to many overall health problems. Gum disease, for instance, increases a person's risk for stroke, heart attack, respiratory and diabetes complications, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, and low-weight births. People without teeth statistically don't live as long as those with a full, healthy smile, and research has linked tooth loss with certain cancers. Regular checkups and professional dental hygiene will put you one step ahead in keeping your smile and your overall health in top condition.
Snoring: It plays havoc on respiratory and circulatory systems. It can be as simple as an unwanted noise or as complicated as sleep apnea (stoppage of breathing). The later can consist of hundreds of episodes of respiratory shut down and heart distress. It can be fatal in extreme cases but usually leaves the sufferer with all the symptoms of a very poor nights sleep. Ask how we can help you!! We use many innovative solutions to ensure your optimal oral health.
