Dr. Essey and his team of skilled professionals work together to provide quality dental treatment solutions for children, teens and adults. We strive to provide personalized and thorough dental care to achieve comprehensive dental wellness. From common problems to gum disease, we provide an array of dental services to meet your dental needs, including:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to look, feel and function like your own natural teeth. Implants can restore the aesthetics of your smile, or act as an anchor for dentures.

Venus White Bleaching

It 's hard to imagine anything more appealing than a sparkling, white smile.  Yet out teeth rarely stay as white as we'd like them to without a little help.  Venus White offers affordable, superior at home whitening for a whiter smile in one week and it is available here at Dr. Essey's office.

You can trust Venus White to help you achieve and maintain a brighter, more radiant smile.  We have a high performance Venus White option that is just right for you.

Venus White Pro is the high performance whitening system specially formulated for simple at home use.  We will work with you to create custom fit trays and will also have touch up kits available.  Use night or day for a bright, radiant smile.

Venus White Ultra offers a quick, convenient and easy way to whiten in just 7 days.  The trays are pre-filled wit mint flavored gel.  These trays are disposable and made of a super thin material offering comfort and effective whitening in just 7 days!

There are lots of things you can do to make sure your whitening results last as long as possible, and this will vary from person to person.  First of all please maintain your usual good routine of brushing and flossing every day and be sure to keep up with your recare appointments in our office.  Avoid foods and beverages that cause stain, such as coffee, tea, red wine, tomato based foods.  Try drinking staining fluids thru a straw if possible or do a swish and swallow with water after having one of those drinks or foods.

 

An announcement for all our brides-to-be, bridesmaids, mothers and fathers of the brides, or even those just attending a wedding!  During wedding season we are having a special on our Venus 7 Day Strips!  Regularly $115, now just $75!  Stop by and ask us about this great product!

 

HAPPY SPRING!!!!!!!

 Just a few dental thoughts to make you smile this spring!

A SMILE IS A CURVE THAT SETS EVERYTHING STRAIGHT!

A SMILE TAKES BUT A MOMENT, BUT THE MEMORIES OF IT LAST FOREVER!

FLOSS LIKE A BOSS!

SMILE, IT LETS YOUR TEETH BREATHE!

KEEP CALM AND FLOSS ON!

 On a more serious note World No Tobacco Day is being celebrated this month.

World No Tobacco Day is an initiative run by the World Health Organization.  The aim of this event is to inform the public about the dangers of using tobacco and make them aware of the business practices of tobacco companies.

World No Tobacco Day also aims to educate people about the work WHO undertakes in fighting the global tobacco epidemic.

A large part of this work is educating the public about the manipulative tactics tobacco companies use to "dupe" people into smoking their products.

Tobacco companies spend billions of dollars on advertising each year, portraying people who smoke as being cool, glamorous, macho and having other valued after traits.

In truth, cigarettes are highly engineered products designed to cause addiction and which often kill.

Cigarettes are highly addiction due to the presence of nicotine in the tobacco.  However, over the years executives from the major tobacco companies have denied this.

Whilst there are more restrictions on how tobacco companies can advertise their products in developed countries such as the United States, in other parts of the world people are still subjected to the more aggressive and manipulative advertising tactics.

Whilst there are fewer restrictions in these countries, international sales will keep these tobacco companies going.

For information, visit the World No Tobacco Day website.

Because tobacco use greatly increases your risk for oral cancers we will again be offering the Identafi oral cancer screening for $55 instead of the regular fee of $72.
