“Once In A Lifetime” Guarantee
Q: How long will your crown last?
A: Insurance companies typically tell us that crowns cannot be replaced with less than a 5 year waiting period. However, so many factors influence the longevity of dental restorations that our best estimates are simply that: estimates. HOWEVER, it is our pleasure to offer you what we believe to be a unique value…THIS WILL BE THE ONLY TIME YOU PAY FOR A CROWN on that tooth! Optimal health is ONLY maintainable when provider (us) and patient alike commit to a joint partnership effort. OUR PART: (effective May 1, 2005 ) If OUR crowns ever need replacement and the tooth is still savable, as long as Dr. Mooney maintains his private practice in dentistry and you do your part (below), we will at no charge to you replace any crown with a new crown of the same type. YOUR PART: (effective May 1, 2005 )
Visit our office for a MINIMUM of 2 times per calendar year for cleanings. (4 if we have recommended that due to Soft Tissue Management issues/periodontal maintenance program)
Complete, in our office, all recommended treatment in the quadrant of the mouth where the crowned tooth is located, within a one year period of the placement of the crown. Gum infection and bacterial decay spread from tooth to tooth. Your path to optimal health requires a comprehensive approach to care.
- Advise us of the need to change or cancel appointments at least 48 hours in advance. Shorter notice cancellations or changes severely limit our ability to offer another patient their most preferred time.
You will be given a printed copy of this “Once In A Lifetime” guarantee on your first visit.
Non Surgical Periodontal Treatment
Years ago, if you suffered from periodontal disease, the only definitive treatment was surgery. This procedure was often painful and costly. With advances in periodontal treatment it is now possible to treat even severe periodontal disease with non-surgical methods. If you have a mild or moderate infection under your gum tissues, we may advise a more definitive course of treatment known as root planing and deep scaling. A routine hygiene visit or prophylaxis appointment will not treat this problem. The recommended treatment will help to prevent loss of bone and gum tissues and the supporting structures of the teeth. A periodontal evaluation including electronic charting will define the places where this infection exists. Your treatment may include:
- Local anesthesia
- Analysis of your home care routine and development of a specific personal program for your needs.
- Thorough, deep scaling of the infected areas with smoothing and polishing of the root surfaces (also called root planing).
- Application of fluorides and desensitizing solutions.
- Antibiotic subgingival medication.
- Purchase of professional, powered toothbrush and/or irrigating appliance.
The complete control of this problem requires your cooperative efforts at home on a daily basis. Your periodontal health will be re-evaluated during the course of treatment and if significant infected sites still remain, additional treatment will be discussed. At the end of the program we will determine whether further treatment is necessary. Once the program is completed, it is absolutely necessary to maintain regular continuing care and health screening appointments to avoid repeated flare-ups.

Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a comprehensive examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take a complete set of x-rays, which may include the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance.
We offer Sheer White state-of-the-art take home bleaching system strips. Easy, Effective & Comfortable. Ask our staff about the easy to use system that can get you 5 shades Whiter in 5 days!
You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns (empressed material) on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use porcelain fused to metal or zirconia materials.
Tooth-colored filings that are light cured to match your teeth. Amalgam: Silver-colored filings, more durable material. Our doctor recommends only the use of resin or composite fillings for your mouth and no longer offers amalgam or silver fillings. The modern composite materials actually bond with your tooth to insure durability and include no mercury.
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
