Periodontal Care

Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. Periodontal diseases are classified according to the severity of the disease. Gingivitis is a milder and reversible form of periodontal disease that only affects the gums. However, gingivitis may lead to more serious, destructive forms of periodontal disease called periodontitis.

More importantly, studies have shown an increased risk of heart disease and stroke in patients with periodontal disease. In addition, diabetics with gum disease are twice as likely as those without it to die from either heart disease or kidney failure. Furthermore, expectant mothers with periodontal disease are seven times more likely to deliver prematurely. It is possible to have periodontal disease and have no warning signs. That is one reason why routine dental check-ups and periodontal examinations are very important.


If a tooth is severely damaged by decay or fracture and is unable to be restored, we do offer in-office extractions. We use gentle techniques and excellent post-operative care for a safe and comfortable experience.

Dental Implant Restoration

Dental implants are the #1 restorative option for replacing one tooth, multiple teeth or even a full arch. A dental titanium implant is surgically placed into the bone and, once integrated, becomes the perfect anchor for a replacement tooth. We now offer treatment for single and multiple missing teeth, complete upper and lower arches (both removable and permanent), bone grafting, sinus lifts and ridge width augmentation.

Composite Restorations

These "tooth-colored" fillings will restore the tooth back to its proper form and function. Dr Johnson will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the affected area, and fill it with a composite material. We are able to match the color of the filling to your tooth so it’s not visible when eating or speaking.


Replacing missing teeth is an important part of a natural looking smile. We will help you choose the perfect shape, fit and shade of your dentures. Complete dentures are necessary to replace teeth when all the teeth in an arch are missing and a partial denture is there to replace missing teeth when you only have a few spaces to fill. A partial will actually use your existing teeth to help anchor it in place. We also offer a wide variety of implant retained dentures for added support.


Sealants are used in addition to proper home care to help protect teeth against decay-causing bacteria. They act as a barrier and are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the molar teeth. There are no injections or drills usually involved in this procedure making it easy on young children.
Treatment methods depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good oral hygiene at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring. You don't have to lose teeth to periodontal disease. Brush, clean between your teeth, eat a balanced diet, and schedule routine dental visits for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Zoom! Boost! Whitening

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with Zoom! Weekender or Nite White gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest.

Nite White Whitening Trays

Tooth whitening is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will dramatically whiten teeth. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth. Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every several years and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.


Invisalign is a custom fit, esthetic and cost effective way to straighten up your smile without the complications of traditional braces. It is available in-office and can correct many typical misalignment cases in as little as 3-6 months.

Lumineers / Veneers / Crowns

Lumineers are a painless, permanent solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth. These contact-lens thin porcelain veneers are cemented to the enamel of the teeth without any drilling or injections. Tooth structure is left completely intact so they are completely reversible.
Ceramic crowns and veneers are used to restore, cover and protect teeth that are broken or are in danger of breakage. If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, a bridge can be anchored to the teeth on either side of the space and cemented in place so you would never notice the difference.
