  • General Preventive Dentistry

    Regular brushing and flossing are excellent for maintenance between office visits, but a healthy mouth and beautiful smile require routine general and preventative care to stay that way. Our practice offers general care that includes regular oral examinations and cleanings. Our preventative care includes fluoride and periodontal (gum disease) treatments designed to help you maintain your smile’s health and beauty. Keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. Contact our office today to schedule a cleaning or consultation.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry
    There’s no reason to hide behind less-than-perfect teeth. After all, a clean, healthy mouth and a beautiful smile are your best assets! Our practice specializes in a wide array of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including bonding, crowns, and veneers, and we aim to give you the dazzling results you want—and deserve. We are devoted to giving you the exact look you desire, whether that requires delicate enhancement or more complex procedures. We offer a vast range of missing tooth-replacement options, including crowns, bridges, removable dentures, partial dentures, and implants.

    Here are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer that are designed to beautify your smile:

    Bleaching
    Everyone feels more beautiful when he or she has a gleaming, bright white smile. Unfortunately, soft drinks, coffee, tea, tobacco, and other dark foods or drinks leave ugly stains on our teeth. We offer a wide range of in-office bleaching options to restore teeth to dazzling perfection and to provide an extra boost of confidence. To find out which option is best for you, please contact our practice today.

    Bonding
    A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly and painlessly restore your smile’s natural beauty. During the procedure, a thin coating of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth. The new coating strengthens your teeth and is virtually indistinguishable from natural color.
  • Family Dentistry
    Kids want to be comfortable, entertained, and respected. Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors, and the highest quality care. We understand that kids and adults have different needs and priorities, and here we address them all. That's why our staff has extensive experience working with children. Dr. Arakawa knows how to make children’s dental experience as pleasant as possible. Please contact us today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
  • Zoom! Whitening
    Many of us feel that our smiles are most striking when our teeth look especially white, but unfortunately, soft drinks, coffee, tea, and tobacco can leave behind ugly stains. To help you restore your gleaming, bright white smile and to give you an added boost of confidence, we offer the Zoom! Chairside Whitening System, which is a scientifically advanced tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour your teeth will become dramatically whiter. Zoom! Chairside Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. The Zoom! clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel, which was designed to be used with a specially designed light. The Zoom! light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up stains and discoloration. With proper care your smile will sparkle for years.
  • Implant Dentistry
    Dental implants are an excellent solution to missing individual teeth. Dr. Arakawa will attach artificial teeth below the gum line using an anchor. The anchor holds the implant in place, allowing excess bone and gum to grow around it. The result is a strong, secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Because dental implants require surgery, they are intended only for candidates with sufficient bone and healthy gums.
  • Crowns
    Also called caps, crowns are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. Crowns minimize physical discomfort and provide support to damaged teeth. Ultimately, crowns can improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury.
  • Veneers
    An excellent alternative to crowns, veneers can perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin, customized material, are designed to slide over the teeth, look incredibly natural, are long lasting, and are relatively easy to apply.To find out which option is best for you, please contact our office today.
  • Custom Dentures
    Today’s technology allows us to fully customize dentures to fit your mouth precisely and to exactly match the color of your existing teeth. A good fit ensures chewing comfort and added strength. If you have any questions about dentures, we can help. Please contact our office today.
  • Full Dentures
    Dentures are an excellent option for people who have lost all their teeth. Precisely designed and molded to fit one’s mouth, full dentures slide over the gums and are held in place with strong cheek and mouth muscles. They allow for comfortable chewing and keep the mouth and its surrounding facial features in proper alignment.
  • Partial or Removable Dentures
    Partial or removable dentures fill gaps left by missing teeth. Partial dentures are held in place with metal clasps or precision devices (tooth-colored, discreet clasps) that are attached to natural teeth. Usually made of resin or metal, partial dentures allow more comfortable and effective chewing, improve speech, and prevent sagging of the cheeks and lips. To find out if partial dentures are right for you, please contact our practice today.
