General Dentistry for the Whole Family

Regular Exams & Cleanings

Regular Exams & Cleanings

Regular six-month check-ups and cleanings are a vital part of maintaining your oral health and keeping your confidence in your smile.

During your 45-minute dental exam, we will:

  • Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
  • Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
  • Inspect your teeth and gums for signs of periodontal disease
  • Provide a thorough teeth cleaning

Each regular exam includes a detailed teeth cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that has built up on the tooth’s surface. As part of our commitment to staying on the cusp of dental techniques, we use advanced digital x-ray and intraoral camera technology to save time, provide clear dental photos, and expose you to less radiation.

Metal-free Fillings

Metal-free Fillings

Having a hole in your tooth or pain while chewing can be a real cause for concern. Our modern dental fillings include ceramic and plastic compounds that mimic the appearance of natural teeth and leave your tooth feeling like new. These compounds, often called composite resins, are typically used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important.

There are two different kinds of fillings: direct and indirect. Direct fillings are fillings placed directly into a prepared cavity in a single visit. Indirect fillings require two or more visits. These fillings include inlays and veneers fabricated with ceramics or composites.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

A missing tooth can cause chewing and eating to destabilize your bite, shift your mouth to make you look older, and cause you discomfort. Implants are an excellent way to replace your missing teeth, and if properly maintained, can last a lifetime!

An implant is a new natural-looking tooth made of metal and porcelain. It’s composed of two main parts: One part is the titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown, which is cemented on top of the implant. With periodontal treatment, you can smile confidently knowing no one will ever suspect you have a replacement tooth.

Dentures

Dentures

Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are normally removable.

There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. We offer implants to anchor dentures that may be shifting and promote a more natural-looking smile.

Use a gentle cleanser to brush your dentures, always keep them moist when they’re not in use, and be sure to keep your tongue and gums clean as well.

Root Canal

Root Canal

When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess may form. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain and swelling can result. This can not only injure your jawbone but is detrimental to your overall health.

Root canal treatment involves one to three visits in which our Redmond dentist removes the affected tissue, cleans the interior of the tooth, and seals it. Finally, the tooth is filled with a dental composite and occasionally a crown. With proper care, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

Sealants

Sealants

Sometimes it is difficult for your toothbrush to get in between the small cracks and grooves on your teeth. Over time those tiny areas can develop tooth decay.

Sealants give your teeth extra protection against decay and help prevent cavities. This plastic resin bonds and hardens in the deep groves of your tooth’s surface. This makes the groves smoother and makes brushing more effective.

Sealants last 3-5 years and are typically applied to children’s teeth as a preventive measure after the permanent teeth have erupted as a way to prevent tooth decay. However, adults also can receive sealants on healthy teeth.

Extractions

Extractions

Sometimes tooth infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a baby teeth can require removal of a tooth. To extract a tooth, your Dr. Frost must expand the socket and separate the tooth from the ligament holding it in place. While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share with your doctor any concerns or preferences for sedation.

Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, we may recommend that you replace the extracted tooth with an implant.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are those annoying molars found in the very back of your mouth, which may become impacted (fail to erupt) due to lack of room in the jaw or angle of entry. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it can cause tenderness, swelling, gum disease, and may need to be removed.

To remove a wisdom tooth, your dentist first needs to numb the area around the tooth and a remove a portion of the covering bone. Once removed the healing time varies depending on the degree of difficulty related to the extraction.

"I have been a patient at Frost Family Dentistry for 30 years. They have my highest praise for the outstanding partnership for my dental care. Everyone at the office is there to make sure they get it right - and they do! I continue to recommend them to family and friends who are looking for a dentist."

– Sharon G. (Frost Patient Since 1994)

Veneers

Veneers

You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. With veneers, you can easily correct your teeth’s imperfections to help you have a more confident, beautiful smile.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) designed to cover the front side of your teeth. To prepare for veneers, Dr. Frost will create a model of your teeth and send it to the dental technician to create your veneers. When ready, we may need to conservatively prepare your tooth to achieve the desired aesthetic result. Then we place the veneer and you get a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Crowns

Crowns

Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay.

A crown is a porcelain or metal “cap” custom-made in a lab and cemented onto an existing tooth that usually covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth, are very strong, and allow for a normal bite and jaw movements.

Bridges

Bridges

A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been.

The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s critical to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.

Bonding

Bonding

Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. It involves a white filling being placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your tooth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.

Bonding is less expensive than other Redmond cosmetic dentistry treatments and usually can be completed in one visit to our office.

Zoom! Whitening

Zoom! Whitening

Zoom In-office Whitening is stronger and more effective than over-the-counter teeth-whitening products and is only available at your dentist.

This modern whitening system is safe, efficient, and personalized to you. The process uses advanced LED light-activated technology and variable intensity settings, which has been shown to whiten teeth by up to eight shades in one visit.

Cosmetic Dentures

Cosmetic Dentures

Like regular dentures, Cosmetic Dentures are a natural-looking and perfectly functional replacement for missing teeth.

There a two common solutions: full or partial dentures.  Full dentures give patients the opportunity to restore their smile when all teeth are missing. Whereas, partial dentures are connected to natural teeth via a metal frame and replace a section of missing teeth.

Frost Family Dentistry also offers implants to anchor dentures that move or shift around. This promotes comfort and produces a healthy smile.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

A missing tooth can cause issues ranging from a destabilized bite to a lack of confidence.

The ideal solution for many patients is Dental Implants. These implants have a 98% success rate and provide a long-lasting, natural-looking resolution to those with a missing tooth.

The strong titanium implant body replaces the missing root and the tooth-colored crown is placed on top – it is that simple to get your smile back.

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing.

Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners comfortable and invisible, but they are also removable, so you can brush, floss, eat, and drink as normal. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problems. There are no metal and wires, and you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments.

How does it work?
Invisalign® is made with 3D computer imaging technology and allows you to view your treatment plan. The process requires you to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened. You’ll visit our office less than you would for traditional braces and the total treatment time averages 9-15 months – super fast!
