Smile Design

Every smile is as unique as the individual is. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to creating a beautiful, healthy smile. Creating the perfect smile requires a careful, thoughtful approach. 

Dr. Young is highly trained and will take the necessary time to discuss your individual options to create the smile you’ve always wanted.

Ceramic crowns

A crown covers the tooth for various reasons:

  • Teeth with root canal treatment
  • Cracked teeth
  • Large cavities that cannot be adequately restored with a filling
New ceramic materials provide the strength of a full metal crown, with the appearance of a natural tooth. Watch this video to see how old crowns compare to new materials. If you’ve ever had a broken crown, talk to Dr. Young about the possibilities of that never happening again.
Dr. Young provides a lifetime warranty on his ceramic restorations against chipping, cracking or breakage, as long as you keep your recommended checkup schedule. No other dentist does this. If your dentist doesn’t warranty your crowns, give us a call.

Composite fillings

Composite, or white fillings, have been used in dentistry for several decades. This material involves an organic resin mixed with an inorganic filler to give it strength.

  • Strong, durable, and bonds to tooth structure
  • Seals the restoration and supports remaining tooth structure
  • Requires removal of less tooth structure than previous materials

Gum Disease

Periodontal, or gum disease, is an infection of the gums and bone that surround teeth and is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.

What causes periodontal disease?

  • The sticky film of food and bacteria that forms on your teeth is called plaque. If the plaque is not removed adequately, it begins to calcify and become hard. This is known as calculus, or tartar, and cannot be removed by simple brushing or flossing. The bacteria in plaque and tartar produce toxins, and combined with your body’s reaction to them, destroys the bone around your teeth. This destroys the support of teeth and can lead to not only dental problems, but overall health problems.

Warning signs:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
  • Soft, swollen or tender gums
  • No pain or discomfort; most people who have periodontal disease are not aware of it until the advanced stages


Root canal treatment

Advances in the field of root canals have led to effective, consistent, and predictable results.

Why do people need them?

  • Trauma to a tooth
  • A large cavity
  • Infection
  • Hypersensitivity

Treating a tooth with a root canal involves removing and shaping the inner portion of a tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal spaces, and filling the roots.

Dental Implants

Dental implants have been used for decades to provide a stable support for missing teeth. Implants can be used to stabilize dentures, act as anchors for a bridge, or replace single teeth that are missing.

Implants are designed to be incorporated into the structure of the jawbone. A crown is then attached to the implant to function as a normal tooth. In most cases, implants take several months from placement to the final restoration(s). There is a period of healing while the implant becomes part of the body and stabilizes.

Whether you’re looking for one, two, or more dental implants like all on four or three on six implants, Dr. Young can help. Let us help you find the best option for your situation.

Sometimes placement of an implant leaves a gap and it’s important to help the implant integrate with your body. That’s why the right bone graft is so important. Dr. Young uses holistic measures and often uses your own blood to create a PRF graft that stimulates your body to heal quickly and effectively.


When someone has lost some or all of their teeth due to disease or injury, restoring the most natural feel and function is critical to one’s well being.

If you or someone you know has a denture that is worn, mis-shaped or loose, please contact us for a consultation. You will love what stable, proper-fitting dentures can do for your health!

Teeth Whitening

We utilize the Zoom! whitening process for quick whitening results. We typically see an increase in lightness of about eight shades during an in-office whitening procedure.

We also provide you with custom-made trays (for future touch-ups) and a mini whitening kit to enhance the whitening process.

Professional teeth whitening does not harm or weaken the teeth. Some people have mild sensitivity for a few hours after the process.

Teeth continue to yellow with age, but the effects are long lasting. Annual touch-ups at home (20 min/day for a few days) are a simple way of maintaining your white smile.

Whitening your teeth at home with professional products is also an effective way to achieve great results.

Cleaning and checkups

Proper oral hygiene can only be maintained through regular, professional cleanings and checkups. An ounce of prevention really does go a long way in preventing unwanted dental problems. Let our highly skilled hygiene team, Jen and Hailee, help you maintain a happy, healthy smile! With over 30 years of combined experience, they know how to provide excellent dental care!

Sedation dentistry

For some people, dental work is a very stressful event. Even to the point that they put off much needed treatment, suffering for long periods of time with infection and pain.

Dr. Young offers several options to make your experience much more relaxing. We offer Nitrous Oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation for those most fearful of dental treatment. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
