Our Services

Healthy Gums
Our hygienists are both thorough and gentle and they are the best in the business! Dr. Holm has empowered them to fully utilize all their skills to offer you top-of the line prevention and early diagnosis that will keep you OUT of the dental chair in the future! For example, you would be amazed at the number of dental practices where gum disease is simply overlooked because the hygienists are forced to work under a high-volume schedule and not encouraged to codiagnose gum disease at its insidious early stages. Many adults are totally unaware that they too can benefit from sealants and fluoride instead of waiting for a cavity to appear- no one has ever told them! We are proud that we do not maintain our patients in a diseased state or wait for problems to surface. Our hygienists help you through the maze of dental products out there so you don't waste your time and money on anything that is not right for you. We can help you create a custom preventive maintenance routine based on your own individual dental findings and circumstances to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you have gum problems, we offer both non-surgical gum therapies and the latest in technologies, like locally-applied topical antibiotics, power toothbrushes, antimicrobial mouth rinses, prescription tooth pastes, and even nutriceuticals. We also offer treatment for cold sores and mouth ulcers and other oral problems. Thousand of studies have proven the link between gum disease and heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, and even cancer. Your gum health is crucial to your over-all health and our hygienists are here to help you!

Dr. Holm and Dr. Erin use the latest techniques to create and maintain beautiful and healthy smiles. We are pleased to offer our patients the following services in a friendly and comfortable environment.

Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken down, cracked teeth and those that are over loaded with unsightly, leaking fillings. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns, while maintaining strength and the beauty of natural translucency and light reflection. Our patients say "you can't even tell it's a crown!."

Teeth Whitening
Whitening is one of the simplest and least expensive techniques and it can give you a brilliant smile you'll be proud of- with no damage to your tooth structure or sensitive gum tissues.   Our custom made whitening kits to use at home are made to fit YOU, unlike the one-size fits all approach of over-the counter products, that do not get into the nooks and crannies where it is most needed.  Studies show that the custom tray method has the longest lasting results, least sensitivity and is the least expensive method of whitening provided in a dental office!  Our professional strength gel delivered in your own custom trays is comfortable, easy to use, and delivers a great result. You also get the long-term benefit of low-cost refills from our office to maintain your results in the future, so you can continue to enjoy the pleasures of coffee, tea and wine, and other foods  while keeping your new smile white!  As long as you are our patient you will enjoy the benefit of whitening for life!

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain (IPS Empress) veneers offers the ultimate in esthetics. A veneer is a thin facing or covering that bonds to the natural tooth structure. A much more conservative alternative to crowns (caps) that can give you the smile you have always dreamed of and deserve.

Porcelain veneers are "top of the line" in cosmetic dentistry. If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, or mis-shapened by repeated fillings and repair, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth. Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight alignment or orthodontic problems and provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time. The results are simply gorgeous

Dental bonding can produce amazing improvements by fixing chips or filling spaces and gaps in your teeth. It too can correct minor misalignments. Bonding is covering a portion of the surface of teeth with durable plastic to either change the tooth's color or shape, or to rebuild broken teeth. Bonding is similar to veneers, but not as strong or long-lasting, and it is a low-cost way to improve your smile. Bonding is great for preserving tooth structure where only minor alterations are needed, for children who have chipped front teeth and for adults who need an alternative for veneers and understand the limitations and higher maintenance and replacement frequency.

Tooth Colored Fillings
Composite resins are tooth-colored restorations that are used in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. This approach has become very popular because silver (mercury) fillings are less attractive. These work well when the remaining tooth structure is plentiful, and not weakened by cracks or heavy wear.


Dentures & Partials
While we wish no one would ever need dentures, sometimes they are the most reasonable option. In the past wearing dentures was the only form of dentistry available to improve a person's smile. When they are indicated we take the time necessary to create attractive, well fitting dentures. They can't beat a set of your own teeth when they are healthy and straight, but when natural teeth can't be restored dentures look great and chew well.

If a person has lost too much of their jawbone to steady their dentures, implants can be placed. The dentures are attached to the implants to hold them firmly in place. If you have this problem, call us for a consultation appointment. If needed, we will coordinate your care with our area's best specialist, hand-picked by Dr. Holm in her 20 years of practicing dentistry. (Be wary of general dentists who claim to do everything but merely "dabble" in the area of implants and dentures.) The skills of an implant surgeon, such as a periodontist, or a specialist in advanced restoration, such as prosthodontist, are sometimes needed to ensure that you receive the best of care in this technically advanced, rapidly-changing area of dentistry.

Dental Implants
Implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. They have many advantages, including their natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience. If you are considering implants, we can discuss the considerations and help you make the decision that is right for you. Dr. Holm has years of experience with restoring implants and coordinates the surgical placement of the implant with a team of local surgical specialist hand-picked over her 20 years of dental experience.

Root Canals
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged nerve of a tooth is removed so that the tooth can be saved or restored. Dr. Holm is in expert in diagnosis in this area, and refers all root-canal treatments to a hand-picked team of specialists to make sure you are getting the best level of care possible. Root canals are the only thing an endodontist does, and they generally provide the best rate of success in treatment. Dr. Holm feels that when it comes to saving your tooth, you deserve to be treated by an expert in this area.

Headaches, clenching, grinding teeth
Many people damage their teeth or give themselves headaches by grinding or clenching their teeth during their sleep. The vast majority of patients are totally unaware that they have this habit, until it is too late. Most of these patients will eventually suffer from teeth that become shortened, worn, cracked and chipped, resulting in a collapsed appearance, or what Dr. Holm likes to call "premature aging of the smile. Some people develop jaw joint (TMJ) pain. Investment in a simple, preventive solution can save you thousands of dollars of restorative treatment down the road! We offer custom-made, comfortable night-guard type splints to help with this. In addition to our standard splints, we offer NTI the only FDA approved splint for the treatment of Migraine headaches. (An important warning: Don't settle for over-the-counter guards, often intended for sports that fit improperly, are not designed to fit your bite and will cause even more irreversible problems.)
