Our Services

Dr. Simi Paul is dedicated to delivering high-quality dental care. She focuses on conservative and preventive dentistry, recommending only the necessary treatments. Our practice offers a wide range of dental services to help you maintain healthy teeth, including:

Exam, X-Ray & Cleaning

A comprehensive dental visit includes an exam, X-rays, and a professional cleaning. During the exam, we thoroughly inspect your teeth, gums, and mouth for signs of cavities, gum disease, and other issues. Dental X-Rays provide detailed images, revealing hidden problems like cavities, bone loss, and impacted teeth. The cleaning process involves removing plaque and tartar, polishing your teeth to remove surface stains, expert flossing, and a fluoride treatment for added protection. Regular exams, X-rays, and cleanings, recommended every six months, are essential for maintaining optimal oral health.

Dental Filling

A dental filling is a common procedure used to repair teeth damaged by decay, restoring their normal function and shape. During the procedure, the decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the area is cleaned before the filling material is applied. We offer various types of fillings, including composite resins that match the natural color of your teeth for a seamless appearance. Fillings help prevent further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter. Regular dental check-ups ensure any cavities are caught early and treated promptly.

Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a specialized dental procedure aimed at treating gum disease and preventing its progression. Unlike regular cleaning, deep cleaning focuses on removing plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line and smoothing the tooth roots to help gums reattach to the teeth. This thorough cleaning reduces inflammation and eliminates bacteria that cause gum disease, protecting your oral and overall health. If you have signs of gum disease, such as bleeding gums or persistent bad breath, a deep cleaning may be recommended.

Dental veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from tooth-colored materials like porcelain or composite resin. They are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance by covering imperfections such as chips, stains, or gaps. Veneers can also enhance the shape and size of teeth, creating a natural and uniform smile. The procedure involves minimal tooth preparation, making it a conservative option for transforming your smile. With proper care, veneers are durable and resistant to staining. If you're looking to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your teeth, schedule a consultation to explore how veneers can achieve your desired smile.

Bridge & Crown

Dental crowns and bridges are restorative treatments used to repair and replace damaged or missing teeth, restoring both function and aesthetics. A dental crown, or cap, is placed over a weakened or decayed tooth to strengthen it and improve its appearance. It covers the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line, providing protection and support. Dental bridges, on the other hand, replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth (pontics) to neighboring teeth or dental implants. Both crowns and bridges are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, offering long-lasting solutions for enhancing your smile and improving dental health. If you have damaged or missing teeth, schedule a consultation to discuss how crowns and bridges can restore your smile.

more
Root Canal

A root canal is a dental procedure performed to save a severely infected or decayed tooth from extraction. During the procedure, the infected or damaged pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) is carefully removed. The tooth is then cleaned, disinfected, and sealed with a filling material to prevent further infection. Root canals alleviate pain and discomfort caused by infection, restore the tooth's function, and preserve its natural structure. After the root canal, a crown is often placed over the treated tooth to strengthen it and protect it from future damage. If you're experiencing severe tooth pain or sensitivity, schedule an appointment immediately to determine if a root canal is necessary to save your tooth.

more
Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure where a tooth is carefully removed from its socket in the jawbone. This treatment is necessary when a tooth is severely damaged by decay, trauma, or infection beyond repair, or when it poses a risk to surrounding teeth or overall oral health. Before the extraction, the area is numbed with local anesthesia to ensure comfort during the procedure. The dentist then uses specialized instruments to gently and efficiently remove the tooth. Post-extraction care instructions are provided to promote healing and minimize discomfort. If you have a tooth that requires extraction or are experiencing dental pain, schedule a consultation today to discuss your options for treatment and restoration.

Partial & full dentures
Dentures and partial dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics. Full dentures replace all teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth when some natural teeth remain. They are custom-made to fit comfortably and securely in the mouth, improving chewing ability, speech, and facial appearance. Dentures are typically made from acrylic resin and may include metal attachments for stability. They require proper care and regular dental check-ups to ensure a proper fit and longevity. If you are missing teeth and considering dentures or partials, schedule a consultation to explore your options and restore your smile confidently.
