Our Dental Services
Porcelain Veneers: When your teeth are otherwise healthy, but you are unhappy with the look of your smile, porcelain veneers may be the appropriate cosmetic enhancement for you. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain, an all-natural, organic material that your dentist customizes just for you by shaping and shading them to create your new flawless smile.
Dental Implants: A dental implant is advanced restorative dentistry that can literally give you back your smile, whether you are missing one or many teeth. An implant mimics the root system of your tooth. Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the bone beneath your gums. The bone heals around the post, fusing it into place. Then a porcelain tooth is anchored to the post. This tooth is not removable. Instead, you care for it in the same way as your natural teeth. It looks and feels completely natural.
Crowns: Sometimes injury or decay damages a tooth to a degree that the tooth structure cannot hold a filling. In such a case, a crown is the mercury free answer. Dr. Durtschi prepares your existing tooth structure to act as the foundation for a custom-made crown that is expertly shaped and shaded to match your existing teeth perfectly. The crown is permanently fitted over your tooth and looks and feels completely natural.
GENERAL AND PREVENTATIVE
Periotherapy: During your initial evaluation, we will assess your gum health and will discuss your options with you. If you show symptoms of gingivitis or more advanced periodontal disease, we can create a plan for you that will restore your health, while preventing future problems.
Tooth Extraction: Sometimes injury or decay damages a tooth extensively. In certain cases, extraction is the proper treatment option to start you on the path toward complete dental health. Dr. Durtschi can gently extract your troublesome tooth and give you the treatment options for replacing that tooth and for completing your beautiful smile again.
Root Canal: Due to advances in dental technology and techniques, root canals are more comfortable than ever. If you need a root canal, your doctor will explain the exact details of your procedure and will provide you with gentle care.

What is Myopia?
Myopia = Nearsightedness
Whether or not your child complains of not being able to see objects at a distance—such as the board at the front of their classroom— they might have a condition called myopia. It’s more commonly known, though, as nearsightedness.
The eyes of a child with myopia become longer over time, which causes distant objects to appear blurry.
And, if it’s not addressed, myopia often worsens as your child gets older.
