Whatever your needs, our team will make you feel welcome and provide excellent service. Contact our office today.

Family Dentistry

It’s difficult to put a value on the confidence that comes from being able to show off a healthy, beautiful smile. The first steps towards this goal are brushing and flossing on a daily basis, and trusting the care of your teeth to a dentist through regular dental exams, professional cleanings, and completing restorative work needed to fix problems. Scheduling regular dental visits are essential to your health, we recommend at least two visits per year. Union Street Dental will evaluate your oral health consistently and understand your specific dental conditions, paving the way for personalized treatments. With our guiding hand, we can help you enjoy a successful and healthy smile for numerous years.

Dental Examination

Dental checkups are vital to good oral hygiene and are the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages. Early detection and treatment saves unnecessary discomfort, time and money. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends checkups twice a year. Oral hygiene needs change with age and the condition of your teeth and gums. With patient education and preventative dental care, we can help our patients avoid dental problems. Consult our office to best schedule your checkups.

Dental Cleaning

Routine professional dental cleanings are a non-invasive way to maintain good oral health. We believe in gentle cleaning techniques to help patient feel comfortable during their procedure. This treatment will leave you with sparkly clean teeth and fresher breath. Our main objective is to prevent gum disease, which is highly common and early symptoms are easily ignored. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss and without professional hygiene treatment and good home care, it can also affect your general health. Your hygiene appointment is a great way to achieve beautifully cleaner mouth but is also important for healthy gums.

Gum Therapy

Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, can lead to bone loss around teeth and early tooth loss if left untreated. Some signs of existing gum disease are bleeding gums when brushing and flossing, foul odor to your breath, inflamed and tendered gums, loose teeth, receding gums and new spacing between teeth. Gum therapy, also known as scaling root planning, is an effective way to treat gum disease. After gum therapy has been completed, our patients are placed on a 3 or 4 months recall cleaning to monitor and prevent the progression of gum disease. Consult Dr Yen if you have any of the signs mentioned above.

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry focuses on patient’s dental education and early detection for cavities, gum disease, teeth wear, oral habits, poor diet, TMJ disorder and dental home care. Dr Yen wants all her patients to spend time doing what they love most and not in the dental chair. We want to empower each patient to be proactive on maintaining optimal oral health. Preventive dentistry includes routine exam/cleaning, fluoride treatment, sealants and correcting oral habits.

Children’s Dentistry

Healthy mouths begin with great oral hygiene habits in early childhood. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should visit the dentist office by their first birthday. Our goal at Union Street Dental is to establish a foundation of healthy oral habits to create a lifetime of good oral health. We provide an array of children’s dentistry including routine checkups, teeth cleaning, cavity risk assessments, fluoride treatment, nutrition recommendations, addressing harmful oral habits, dental education and restorative treatments with laughing gas.

Dental Emergency

We understand NO ONE can live a quality life with a toothache! Dental emergencies are no joke; you should be seen as soon as possible, especially when a dental abscess or facial swelling is involved. When these problems arise, we will make the time for you by staying late and focusing on alleviating your dental pain. Call our office ASAP so we can squeeze you in!

Analgesic

Our patients’ comfort comes first. We are equipped to help our patients cruise by every dental visit like a champ. We offer gentle local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedatives. Dr Yen will consult which option or options are best for you.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry involves repairing damaged teeth to bring mouths back into use by providing a wide range of procedures such as tooth colored fillings, crowns, bridges and dental implants. In addition to negatively affecting oral health and comfort, damaged teeth can reduce self-confidence when they affect appearance. When a tooth is lost, nothing is ever the same. The entire balance of a healthy mouth is lost. We can help you restore your damaged teeth and improve your quality of life.

Tooth Colored Fillings

When a tooth is damaged by decay or trauma, it can be repaired with a composite material that mimic the look, feel and function of a natural tooth. The tooth-colored composite material is safe and predictable, but most important feature, a tooth is restored to the look of its natural state.

Porcelain Crowns

Dental porcelain can be sculpted to closely replicated the look of a natural tooth. Advances in the strength and appearance of porcelain crowns made them an excellent choice when recreating the form and function of a damaged tooth that is heavily restored, root canal treated, largely decayed, heavy wear and fractured prone. When a tooth needs 360 degree of coverage, a porcelain crown will provide strength and resilience.

Porcelain Bridges

A fixed porcelain bridge is an option to replace a lost tooth by using adjacent teeth to replicate both the form and function of original teeth. A porcelain bridge can improve the original appearance of adjacent teeth and create a flawless replacement for the missing tooth. If a patient receive a fixed bridge, good oral hygiene techniques are a must to maintain its longevity. Please consult Dr Yen if this is the right option for you.

Root Canal Therapy

You are not alone if these words make you cringe. Root canal therapy has received a bad reputation, but it is a great option to save a tooth if it has become severely infected or decayed by removing the nerve within the tooth. A root canal therapy tooth will later need a porcelain crown coverage.  Dr Yen and our team will walk you through the entire process. Your comfort is our utmost priority!

Tooth Extractions

When a tooth is determined as non-restorable, it will need to be taken out of the mouth. Some teeth are extracted due to the following reasons: wisdom teeth, preparation for orthodontics, severely decayed tooth, broken teeth beyond repair or mobile teeth from advanced gum disease. Dr Yen’s gentle hands will make this process as smooth and forgettable as possible. Please consult our office for pre and post operative instructions for this procedure.

Dental Implants

Dental implants restore teeth that are lost. At Union Street Dental, your dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can “Smile with Confidence!”, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants we use are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.

Dentures

Dentures are prosthetic devices designed to help patients without teeth chew food and improve speaking habits. Additionally, dentures improve the patient’s facial aesthetics and self-esteem. The absence of teeth can lead to a sunken, collapsed appearance to the mouth-area; by restoring the physical presence of teeth, this malformation is corrected. Our dentures are made from the highest-quality materials, so they are both beautiful and durable. They are also exceptionally comfortable, and are made to fit with exacting precision over your gums or dental implants.

Night Guards

Night guards help to protect your teeth from moderate-severe nighttime grinding or bruxism. Those who grind their teeth at night are more susceptible to significant tooth damage and decay and their teeth typically have a shorter life expectancy.

By providing a barrier between your lower and upper teeth, night guards will help protect your teeth against nighttime grinding. In addition, consistent use of your night guard may help you avoid paying unnecessary dental restoration costs and ensure that your teeth remain healthy and strong. Dentists at Union Street Dental will customize your night guard to perfectly fit the dimensions of your mouth and teeth. This custom-made guard will remain comfortably in your mouth and make it easier for you to breathe while you are sleeping.

Sport Guards

Sports mouthguards are prescribed for both professional and amateur athletes because they offer the highest level of protection during sports activity. When worn properly, they can prevent dental trauma, such as fractured teeth. They are also indicated for patients with an orthodontic situation, such as braces, who must wear a mouthguard for preventive measures. There are several types of mouthguards to choose from, and our doctor can help you choose the best one for your particular needs.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry is a branch of dentistry that improves the aesthetic appearance and function of your teeth, mouth and smile. This can be done by using a number of different techniques, including porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges, bonding or orthodontics. After having cosmetic dental procedures done, your teeth should continue to function correctly and your bite should feel normal. Many cosmetic dental procedures are more than just cosmetic – they can alleviate headaches, make teeth easier to clean, and protect teeth from decay. Not feeling confident about your teeth? Contact us today and we can help!

Cosmetic Bonding

Tooth bonding is a conservative and effective option to enhance and recontour the appearance of a tooth. Advances in the strength and esthetics of composite resin material provide natural look to fix small chips, hide white spots, recontour shape of tooth and close small gaps.

Inlays/Onlays

We offer inlays and onlays if a tooth is heavily restored, and it involves the compromised of a cusp. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain or high noble gold in a laboratory, which make this option highly esthetic and mimic the look of the original tooth. Inlays and onlays are slightly more durable than composite fillings and serve as a great option if a tooth does not quite need full crown coverage.

Porcelain Veneers

Union Street Dental wants you to love the way you smile. Porcelain veneers can change the color, shape, size and look of your teeth and completely transform your smile. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are strongly bonded to the surfaces of front teeth, giving your smile a total make-over. Don’t settle for a smile that doesn’t make you feel amazing!

Invisalign

Invisalign ® uses a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of brackets and wires to straighten your teeth. So even up close it’s really hard for people to tell you’re wearing Invisalign ®. This treatment can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without the braces you’ve always avoided. Let us help you straighten out those teeth with Invisalign!

Teeth Whitening

Would you rather brighten your smile in the office or at home? How can you whiten sensitive teeth? Our caring staff members will consider all of your needs while they choose the right formula for you. We will alleviate any worry you may have and answer all of your questions about the teeth bleaching process. All of our teeth whitening methods are effective, low-sensitivity and safe. You won’t believe how simple it is to attain a brilliantly white smile. You can sit back and relax in our office, or you can achieve white teeth in your own home.
