Your smile says a lot, and we want to help you make it even brighter. At Alder Family Dental, we offer comprehensive dentistry so our patients can present their best smile when trying to make a good impression. Cosmetic dentistry is not just large, expensive procedures. There are a range of options available that can make a significant impact on your appearance. Following an evaluation with one of our dentists, he can offer education, information, and variety of treatment options so you can determine what is right for you.
Why do our patients ask about cosmetic dentistry?
For years you may have taken your perfect smile for granted, but as we age, teeth can wear, affecting their strength and appearance. Our teeth can begin to look dingy, stained, uneven, or chipped. As you begin to realize that your teeth are not looking as youthful as you might like, you may begin to hide your smile. Problems such as natural imperfections, accidental damage, or food stains can cause embarrassment and even social anxiety. We don't want you to dim your smile because of your teeth. At Alder Family Dental, our dentists are specially trained to determine what is causing you to be self-conscious with your smile and to fix teeth that are stained, chipped, or crooked. With our state-of-the-art technology and equipment, we may be able to do this faster and easier than you think, erasing years of wear in a few short appointments.

Dental ImplantsDental implants allow us to replace teeth that are missing without relying on the surrounding teeth. Dental implants can also provide additional support and retention for partial or complete denture prosthesis. A dental implant is a titanium metal post that is placed into your jawbone, replicating the root of the tooth. After healing, a crown can be attached to the titanium implant, resulting in the closest thing we have in dentistry to replacing a missing tooth. Titanium is a biocompatible metal, meaning your living tissue will not reject it but rather incorporate around it over time. Once the post is firmly healed in place, our Doctors can place one of multiple dental prosthetics on top. The restorations range from a single implant supported dental crown to an abutment for a multiple unit dental bridge, or additional support for a denture. Dental implants are considered a permanent solution. Their lifespan can be greater than 20 years with proper maintenance and our knowledge and technology is constantly improving with time. Our Doctors have taken countless hours of implant based continuing education and therefore are able to place a large percentage of implants here in office, saving you time, money, and headache. At Alder Family Dental we are proudly able to restore any name brand dental implant we are able to identify. We routinely work with Hahn and Zimmer implant systems.
Traditional BracesOur office now provides traditional orthodontics to patients of all ages! A complimentary consultation is offered to see if you are a candidate. Dr. Sharkey has training in both straight edge and tip edge bracket system orthodontics and customizes the plan to the individual patient based on their needs.
InvisalignInvisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth without metal brackets. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.
