Services

We are passionate about helping our patients optimize their health and feel more confident about their smile. Helping patients achieve the level of health they've always wanted—or didn't know was possible—is central to our core values at Capitol Dental. A clean, healthy smile can give you the confidence to be your best self—while helping the people in your life see the real you. We create restorations that look, feel, and function like real teeth. Our philosophy: preventing problems is much easier and more cost effective than trying to manage or repair them after they have started.


Implant Dentistry

By replacing missing teeth our patients tell us they feel younger, healthier and more confident.

Implant Dentistry
smilegallery_sm_rodriguesBy replacing missing teeth our patients tell us they feel younger, healthier and more confident. Whether it's a single tooth implant, an implant bridge, or an implant supported denture the dental implant has become the most versatile and effective treatment option requested by our patients. At Capitol Dental we have been placing and restoring dental implants for almost 30 years—with success rates of over 98%. Modern computer-guided 3D imaging ensures ideal placement, quicker procedures and decreased discomfort during and after the appointment.

Dental implants—despite their technical complexity—remain one of our strongest areas of practice.


General Dentistry

We continually strive to provide our patients with the most comprehensive services available.

General Dentistry
lori_afterWe continually strive to provide our patients with the most comprehensive services available. Capitol Dental offers top quality general dentistry to patients in need of cleaning, fillings or preventative care.

In addition to general dentistry, we can help you achieve the smile you have always wanted without the intrusiveness of metal braces. Our 6 Month Smiles program utilizes low-impact clear braces to straighten your teeth without the discomfort and time frames of traditional orthodontics.

Dentures used to represent the end of good eating—relegating patients to a life of soft foods and dull flavor. Today, implant supported dentures allow for smaller apparatus, bigger chewing force, and restored feel and taste when eating your favorite meals. By utilizing implants, the denture can be permanently inserted so you never have to worry about it falling out.

We now know that the triad of bruxism, snoring, and acid reflux is directly linked to sleep apnea—a major threat to overall health. If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can help you beat it by working with your doctor to fabricate an oral sleep appliance. We’ll work alongside your physician to make sure it is adjusted for maximum effect and you are getting the sleep you deserve.


Advanced Oral Health

Instead of the old way of only offering after-the-fact treatments, we focus on identifying risk factors up front to help you stay ahead of your dental health.

Advanced Oral Health
Recent studies have shown that the bacteria in your mouth can get into your blood stream and put you at higher risk of numerous systemic conditions such as heart attack, stroke, and low birth weight in babies. Factors like the type of bacteria in your mouth, the way your teeth bite together, the acidity in your mouth, your type of gum tissue, sleep apnea, diet, and many others considerations contribute to the overall health of your mouth. Instead of the old way of only offering after-the-fact treatments, we focus on identifying risk factors up front to help you stay ahead of your dental health.

Over the years we have incorporated many of the following methods to help evaluate the health of your mouth:

  • CariFree - evaluates acidity levels in the mouth

  • OralDNA - determines both the bacteria and genetic risk associated with periodontal disease and heart health

  • Somnomed - treats sleep apnea and replaces noisy CPAP machines—which can bring couples back together.
      This comprehensive approach to dentistry will not only help you achieve a higher level of health, it will improve your quality of life—while avoiding costly long term procedures.




Cosmetic Dentistry

A smile can transform your life, and we believe a restored tooth should look like a natural tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Our passion is using dentistry to positively impact people's lives. A smile can transform your life, and we believe a restored tooth should look like a natural tooth.

Modern materials allow us to perfectly mimic natural tooth structure in both function and aesthetics. This means that virtually everything we do could be considered cosmetic.

From replacing a missing front tooth to upgrading an old faded crown, we listen to your needs to ensure that your dental experience meets or exceeds expectations.

Check out our Smile Gallery for examples of our cosmetic dentistry offerings.


Sedation Dentistry

No single patient is exactly like the next, which is why we offer many treatment options. Nearly 80% of patients have expressed some degree of anxiety about visiting the dental office.

Sedation Dentistry
No single patient is exactly like the next, which is why we offer many treatment options. Nearly 80% of patients have expressed some degree of anxiety about visiting the dental office. In many cases, these concerns stem from a fear of adverse reactions to sedation. We think it is important to offer different sedation methods that can be customized to each patient’s individual preference.

Nitrous oxide, sedation pills, and IV sedation are all available at Capitol Dental. Whether you would like to "take the edge off", achieve a very relaxed state, or go completely to sleep during your appointment, we can accommodate.

Many procedures do not even require sedation these days. Some patients even fall asleep during their cleaning appointments! These seemingly small victories are what sets Capitol Dental apart from our competitors.


Restorative Dentistry

From individual fillings to full mouth reconstructions our goal is to help you maintain a healthy mouth for life.

Restorative Dentistry
From individual fillings to full mouth reconstructions our goal is to help you maintain a healthy mouth for life. We believe a restored tooth should look perfectly natural. Modern materials allow us to perfectly mimic the tooth’s organic structure in both function and aesthetics.

Whether it's a small filling, an implant tooth replacement or a whole new smile, your restoration will look, feel and last like the real thing.

Many tooth problems can be prevented or minimized through preventive treatment.

  • Small cavities can be reversed and never need a filling

  • Cracked teeth can be crowned before they break and require extraction

  • Grinding can be identified before teeth are worn down and require expensive reconstruction.

Smile Portfolio

Mark
Due to years of grinding and acid erosion Mark's teeth were wearing out. If he didn't do something soon he would be in a difficult situation where his teeth wouldn't last his lifetime. He told us he wanted a beautiful, bright smile and he wanted it done as quickly as possible. We were able to reconstruct and rebuild his teeth to have a brilliant smile and the confidence to chew normally in only two appointments.
Angie
Angie came to us with severe wear on her teeth, back teeth with large cavities, and an extreme fear of coming to the dentist. Over the course of a number of consultation appointments we developed a relationship of trust that gave her the confidence to take care of her teeth. Using IV sedation we were able to restore her teeth and her smile. This is one of my most fulfilling cases as Angie shared that going through this process gave her the confidence to overcome other fears and challenges in her life. You can see from the photos how her smile transformed from timid and shy to full, radiant, and confident.
Roger
Roger had a crown on his front tooth that had been there for many years. During this time it had worn away his lower front teeth and the shade no longer matched. His only daughter was getting married and he wanted a beautiful smile for the wedding photos. As his soon to be son-in-law I wanted Roger's smile to match his outgoing, infectious personality. He was very happy with the result, his wife couldn't stop talking about it and in the end he let me marry his daughter.
Drew
Drew had a terrible accident one weekend and broke two teeth and shattered another which we were unable to save. After removing the tooth we needed to do some additional surgical procedures including bone and tissue grafting. A reconstruction like this takes time to get ideal results and Drew did his part at home encouraging healing by keeping the area clean. We achieved a great result by replacing the missing tooth with an implant supported crown and placing two veneers on the other teeth.
Grace
Grace is a beautiful young lady who came to us because she heard we did 6 Month Smiles. Her parents couldn't afford braces for her as a child and she wanted to improve her smile. She shared with us that she always felt like people were looking at her teeth when she smiled and she was self conscious. We discussed her different options and she decided she wanted to do 6 Month Smiles. Her treatment took exactly 6 months and now she feels like the decision to straighten her teeth has changed her life. She smiles with confidence and now when people look at her they see the real Grace, not just her smile.
Lori
This crown had been placed only a few years before Lori came to see us. She was concerned with the shade and grey color at the gum line as well as the red puffy gums around the crown and the length. We discussed how the metal of the crown was causing the grey color and causing the inflammed gum tissue which effects the health of her heart. She decided to replace the crown and we used an all porcelain material for improved esthetics and tissue health. Cases like this are so gratifying because not only do I get to help people smile the work I do improves people's health.
Donna
Donna was really concerned about her crowded lower teeth and had been to other dentists and specialists who told her it would take two years to straighten her teeth. At 47 years old she didn't want to wear braces that long. We discussed the options, risks, and benefits and Donna decided she wanted to do 6 Month Smiles. Donna had high expectations and numerous times during treatment she was sure the teeth weren't moving. In the end her treatment took 6 months and the day we took the braces off she couldn't stop smiling.
Lisa
A few years ago Lisa had crowns placed on her two front teeth and was never very happy with the result. She was concerned about the red infected gum tissue and that the color didn't match. We talked about the color and shape of the crowns and what results we could achieve with new porcelain crowns. It took a couple of tries and she was patient with me as I worked closely with the lab technician. In the end she was very excited with the results and I was pleased that the tissue looks healthy around the new crowns.
