IV Sedation Dentistry
For some the thought of sitting in the dental chair is just too much to bear, and it’s no wonder when terrified patients relate stories from their childhood of undergoing dental treatment without dental anesthesia. Sedation dentistry is a godsend for these patients. The often badly needed dentistry can safely be accomplished in the dental office with the help of sedation, very often with little memory of the procedure. Call our office to learn more.

Porcelain 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 line in cosmetic dentistry. If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, 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 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 in your teeth. Bonding is covering the front 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, but it is a low-cost way to improve your smile. Bonding is great for children who have chipped front teeth and for adults who need an alternative for veneers and understand the limitations.
Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Inlays and Onlays 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 fillings are less attractive.
BOTOX (Botulinum toxin) is a neurotoxin that blocks messages between muscles and the nerves that control them. BOTOX is a natural protein. It is most powerful muscle relaxant with the least side-effects. Another safety benefit is that the Botulinum toxin does not stay in the body indefinitely. The temporary effects of BOTOX become apparent 7-10 days after the procedure and generally last 3-4 months. Click here to learn more about BOTOX Treatment.
As we age, our skin’s dermis gradually loses its major constituents: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin, elastin allows are skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles, and hyaluronic acid helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin.

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.
Traditional braces with attachments and wires are now available at Dental Designs of Stroud!
Orthodontics & Invisalign
The “clear” way to straighten your teeth. Invisalign gradually moves your teeth through a series of custom made, removable, nearly invisible Aligners. Thanks to CAD CAM technology, Invisalign is able to transform smiles in months without wires.
There is no need to travel out of town to have wisdom teeth extracted. We can complete wisdom teeth extractions right here at Dental Designs of Stroud!
Mini Dental Implants for Denture Stabilization
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.
A dental implant is a “root” device, usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. They can also be used as anchorage for orthodontic tooth movement. The use of dental implants permits undirectional tooth movement without reciprocal action.
