It is often said, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression”. Your smile is the first thing most people see. It can instantly portray your personality, self -confidence, joy and vitality. What does your smile say about you?
Are you embarrassed to smile? Nearly 50% of adults surveyed say they want a beautiful smile. Isn’t it time to have the smile you deserve?
Van Hofwegen & Munter Family Dentistry have three decades of combined dental experience. The partners of Gary Van Hofwegen, Doug Van Hofwegen, and Josh Munter are dedicated to providing expert dental care from cosmetic to restorative services for the whole family.
We offer the following dental services:
Veneer or Laminates
These are thin shells of porcelain that can be bonded onto the front side of the tooth to make a cosmetic improvement in the tooth appearance. This is a quick & affordable way to idealize teeth that are stained, discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned.
Invisalign’s invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. Best of all…no one can tell you’re wearing them…No metal mouth!
Tooth Colored Fillings and Sealants
We offer an alternative to silver fillings which are made of a composite or resin material that keeps your smile white. Sealants are a clear varnish-like material that can be applied as well to help prevent the need for a filling at all.
If you have a small gap between your teeth or if you have chipped, cracked, stained or misshaped teeth, you can be candidate for bonding. With this procedure we can shape and color a single tooth or improve your entire smile.
Whitening is the best way to look younger. It has been known that yellowish teeth make people look older than their real age. We can brighten your smile!
A little dental contouring can make a huge difference in your smile. Good cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile that is the envy of others. Tooth reshaping or sculpting is a safe and conservative way to improve or regain your confidence.
Root Canal Therapy
When damage from decay goes beyond what can be treated with a filling, we can perform a root canal preserving the tooth and saving a tooth that in the past would have to have been pulled. We make every effort to salvage your tooth.
If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth we can help restore your smile with implant crowns.
Crown and Bridges
You can have the smile you have always dreamed about…ask us about the many options for creating a natural looking smile.
We can make your smile as natural as your original teeth.
Extractions and Oral Surgery
When a tooth needs to be removed, in most cases it can be extracted at our office. In some difficult cases or where sedation is desired, you can be referred to an oral surgery specialist.
We take pride in taking care of your family - growing right along with you- for a lifetime.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults and most often the patient will be unaware that this is happening. We screen all of our patients for periodontal disease and provide treatment and options for containing your disease.
Night Guards and Occlusal Therapy
People who grind their teeth can sometimes develop a serious problem with their jaw, which left untreated, can adversely affect the teeth, gums and bone structures of the mouth. Jaw pain? Headaches? Neck aches? Tooth sensitivity? Let us evaluate you for possible TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) and offer possible solutions for getting you back to feeling 100%.
Oral Hygiene and Education
It is a proven fact that good oral hygiene is directly linked to overall well being. We at Van Hofwegen & Munter Family Dentistry take pride in offering our patients much needed information regarding at-home care including brushing, flossing, picking, diet, and daily healthy choices.
