Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are tooth-colored, and will not stand out from your smile. The dental composite material may actually be used to improve both the look and function of your teeth. Bonding is not only attractive, it’s quick and it’s simple. Composite fillings and dental bonding provide a fast but fulfilling fix for cosmetic problems and decay.

There are a variety of materials used to fill teeth these days, but the process of filling a tooth is similar regardless. The first step is a clinical exam of the tooth with x-rays, to determine the extent of the decay. Then the decayed area of the tooth is removed, usually with a handheld instrument such as a dental drill. Of course, your tooth will be anesthetized first, so you won’t feel any discomfort. If you normally feel nervous about receiving numbing injections, it’s possible that taking an anti-anxiety medication or using nitrous oxide can help you feel more relaxed. After removing the decay, the remaining tooth structure is roughened or “etched” with a mildly acidic solution; then translucent cement is applied to bond the tooth and the filling material together.

Ultra Thin Veneers

Dr Lunn prefers ultra-thin veneers as the go-to cosmetic solution for crowded, chipped, worn, discolored or crooked teeth. Ultra-thin veneers can change the size, shape and alignment of your teeth as well as give you the bright white smile that you have always wanted. Traditional veneers require the removal of large amounts of healthy enamel, but ultra-thin veneers can be placed much more conservatively. Patients with veneers achieve a natural tooth appearance that is well-tolerated by the gums and also resistant to future stains.

Professional tooth whitening using take home custom trays is the preferred whitening method because even though we use stronger bleach, the rest of the mouth, including the gums, are protected from these materials. Over-the-counter products are not nearly as effective and do not offer the exacting fit of of a custom tray. The best whitening systems feature a buffer in the gel that protects the tooth enamel from damage, are extremely effective, and can transform teeth in just a couple of applications. Your teeth can literally brighten up to 10 shades if used properly and then that shade can be maintained through periodic use.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a root replacement that once healed supports a permanent tooth and they are manufactured to last a lifetime. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw. A crown is placed on the implant for a long-lasting and natural looking smile. Many dentists and patients prefer dental implants because they offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a single missing tooth or to restore an entire smile.

Conscious Sedation & Nitrous Oxide

Many of our patients have not been to the dentist in 5 to 20 years, these are people who’s greatest fear is going to the dentist. We simply use a small pill to relax them. Once they are comfortable and relaxed we correct years of painful and embarrassing problems sometimes in just one appointment and we do this without lectures or putting them down. Try sedation dentistry with pills just once and you will never be afraid of going to the dentist again! 

We also offer all of our patients free nitrous oxide to insure a comfortable visit every time. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective gas that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Nitrous oxide is sometimes called “laughing gas” and it is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions Dr. Lunn or the assistant may have. You breathe normally through your nose and the gas will make you feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed so that you can drive a car safely after your appointment.

Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are custom-fitted tooth prosthetics that are used to replace or restore damaged or missing teeth. Crowns – also known as caps – are fixed over the surfaces of natural tooth structures or dental implants. Bridges are used to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and are anchored in place by the natural teeth or crowns nearest the empty space. Both crowns and bridges are non-removable and must be cemented in place by a licensed dentist. Patients who get crown or bridges to restore their smiles achieve both the function and appearance of natural, healthy teeth.

Hygiene & Gum Care

The hygienist’s main work is to prevent and treat gum disease including professionally cleaning your teeth. This is usually called ‘scaling and polishing’. However, perhaps their most important role is showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky coating that forms constantly on your teeth. If it is not brushed away properly, this hardens to form tartar which you cannot remove yourself. They also give advice on diet and preventing dental decay. The hygienist will work alongside Dr Lunn to give you care that is tailored to your needs.

Gum Disease

Studies show that nearly three in every four Americans suffer from debilitating gum disease. It’s called periodontal disease, and it begins with bacteria growing around the teeth. This causes infection, triggering the body’s inflammatory response. This soon leads to the destruction of the gum and bone around the teeth. If gum disease is left untreated, it can cause loose teeth, exposed roots, bad breath, bleeding, swelling, pain…and eventually the loss of your teeth. In fact, gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. While most people associate gum disease with oral health, recent studies have proven that it affects your entire body. The infected gums provide a path for bacteria to enter the bloodstream, carrying infection throughout the entire body. This increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. Gum disease is now believed to be a significant linking factor to heart disease. It is considered to have the same degree of impact on your heart as high cholesterol, obesity and smoking. 

Gum disease has been proven to be directly associated with some of the following health issues: 

• Diabetes
• Lung disease
• Osteoporosis
• Stroke
• Weakened immune system
• Gastric ulcers
• Premature child birth


When your gums are infected, you entire body is weakened, making you vulnerable to other diseases.

Dentures & Partials

Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics designed to look and function like natural teeth. For thousands of years, some form of denture has been used to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, although today’s dentures are much more advanced and easier to care for. Most dentures are composed of replacement teeth attached to plastic bases that take on the appearance of the gums. They are used to compensate for one or more missing teeth, and are available as partials and complete sets of teeth. Many dental patients elect dentures for tooth replacement if they are not candidates for dental implants or are otherwise looking for a tooth replacement option that is more affordable and budget-friendly.

Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Scaling and root planing (SRP) is the most common and conservative form of treatment for periodontal (gum) disease. Scaling is the removal of calculus (commonly called tartar) and plaque that attach to the tooth surfaces. The process especially targets the area below the gum line along the root.

Plaque is colonies of bacteria that form on teeth and when the plaque hardens on the tooth and root it is called calculus. Plaque is more likely to stick to rough surfaces. For this reason, the root surface is made smooth in a process called root planing. Root planing removes any remaining calculus and smooths any irregular areas of the root surface.

In addition, the use of lasers as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) improve the effectiveness of this procedure. When the lasers are used during periodontal therapy there can be less bleeding, swelling and discomfort to the patient during surgery. The best part is that the recovery time is less than 24 hours so the patient can quickly return to their daily routine at home or work.
