Our Services

Family Dentistry for Central Maine
Dental Care for the Individual

Maintaining your dental health is important at every age! Please schedule regular appointments for preventative care. We look forward to your visit at least twice a year for a cleaning, exam, and x-rays.

In addition to routine dentistry, Smile Solutions of Maine offers a full-range of specialized dental services in both of our offices. We use progressive dental technology to develop individualized treatment plans and personalized service. The outstanding clinical care Smile Solutions provides will help you achieve optimal oral health.

Complete Examinations

The perfect beginning to a new doctor-patient relationship is a thorough evaluation of all oral systems using different approaches. Photos, x-rays, charting, plaster models, and oral cancer screening are part of the process.

Crowns & Bridges

Your teeth are composed of two main parts. The crown is the part visible above the gum. The root is the part below the gum that holds your tooth firmly in your jawbone. If the crown of your tooth becomes weakened by decay or fractures, or if it is stained or uneven, it can be restored and strengthened by an artificial crown. Contact us today to ask questions about dental crowns and how they can benefit you!

What is a dental bridge? It is an artificial tooth used to replace one that is missing. A dental bridge is attached to neighboring teeth. One of the benefits of using a bridge to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) is how natural the replacement tooth looks and feels. With proper care, a bridge can last for years. See us today if you would like to “bridge the gap” in your smile!

Dentures

Full or partial dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. These are custom-made to fit comfortably in a framework that rests on your gums. Our dentures will look natural, help you to chew, assist in clear speaking and improve your appearance. Over time these prosthetics will need to be re-evaluated due to ongoing changes in gum and bone structure. These custom dentures will play a vital role in the maintenance of your dental health.

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays are an essential tool that help us see areas of your teeth, mouth, and jaw that would be otherwise impossible to view with the naked eye. The knowledge gained from x-rays can be invaluable to your health. In our office, we use digital dental x-rays systems that are more sensitive than older dental x-ray film systems, so your exposure to radiation is cut by as much as 50 percent. These digital films allow enlargement for your viewing and for improved diagnosis. Records are easily transferred to other doctors.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride therapy is utilized in children and adults as a dental decay preventive. This in combination with other approaches that will enhance your dental health.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Say goodbye to silver fillings… a more attractive material is now available! If you need a filling, our doctors will offer to use a composite material that matches the shade of your tooth. There are many benefits to white fillings besides being more attractive. Not only do tooth-colored fillings look more natural, but they result in less tooth sensitivity, they are free of metal, and they are strong. We feel this material is an excellent alternative to traditional silver fillings.

TMJ Disorder

A Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. It allows for the opening and closing of the mouth. This is the most used joint in the entire body, and it affects your teeth and gums, and your ability to talk, chew, and swallow. Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) occurs when the lower jaw is not in the proper position relative to the upper jaw. If you are suffering from TMD, a custom-made night guard that is created using advanced digital imaging and 3D tomography can help relieve your pain.

Dental Cleanings

Professional removal of stains and hard deposits (calculus) leave teeth that are smoother and resistant to new debris attachment. Our caring and capable hygienists, under mindful supervision, perform these responsibilities exquisitely. Better oral hygiene at home through education and the patient utilizing improved, modern devices leads to improved health. We teach patients and assist in the transition to better skills for daily cleaning.

Dental Implants

A naturally beautiful smile can be yours! Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing missing teeth. Implants are small, sturdy, titanium posts that act as the root structure would for a natural tooth. A dental implant is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone has healed adjacent to the implant, it can hold a crown, bridge, or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime.

Dentistry for Children

Smile Solutions of Maine creates a fun and positive experience for our young patients. Let us introduce your children to the wonderful world of dentistry! No matter how many teeth have erupted, children should start seeing a dentist by the age of one. Regular dental check-ups, dental sealants, and treating oral health issues early is always recommended. We love seeing children smile… and children enjoy spending time in our friendly and caring environment!

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth so you have a beautiful, sparkling smile! Veneers are custom-made, ultra-thin, porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are durable and can be made to match the existing color of your teeth, or they can be made a whiter, brighter shade than your natural teeth. Veneers are a great way to correct crooked, cracked, discolored, and misshapen teeth for a vastly improved smile.

Sports Mouth Guards

Mouth guards are worn during recreational, professional, or competitive sports activities – including practice, competitions, and games. Without a mouth guard, you risk chipping, breaking or even losing teeth. We offer custom-made mouth guards that give you a professional level of protection. Our mouth guards are much more effective than the type of mouth guards you can buy over-the-counter in a drug store. We can also make them to match school or team colors!

Teeth Whitening

Your teeth are one of the first thing people notice when they meet you. Restore your smile to its natural luster! We provide patients with customized trays and a take-home gel that is safe and effective to achieve whiter and brighter teeth. Our whitening system yields fantastic results and is more helpful than whitening toothpaste and products that you can purchase over-the-counter. Speak to one of our team members about our professional whitening system today!
