Our Featured Services
When you come to our office for a routine visit, we make sure you leave with fresh, sparkling smile. Our experienced hygienists will first take the time to thoroughly clean your teeth. Then Dr. Lybrook will perform a thorough exam and work closely with you to craft a dental care plan that fits your needs and ensures a lifetime of oral health. One of the keys to maintaining your oral health and your best smile is to attend a regular schedule of exams and cleanings!
As the name suggests, preventive dental care is about preventing problems from developing with regular check-ups and proactive care.
During routine visits, we clean your teeth and look for any early signs of tooth decay so we can provide shallower, less invasive fillings to preserve more of your tooth and enhance your long-term dental health.
Some of our patients need a little extra help when it comes to fighting tooth decay, and that’s what we’re here for. Whether it’s because you take medicine that causes dry mouth, you wear braces, or another situation, we offer special fluoride treatments that strengthen teeth and prevent decay.
We truly care about your smile, and that’s why we want to help you keep it in its best shape. We create completely custom mouthguards and nightguards to protect your teeth from damage due to sports injuries or from nighttime grinding.
As your partners in health, we don’t just look after your teeth. We want to ensure your long-term overall wellness too! We provide oral cancer screenings where we carefully check for any signs of the disease so that we can spot and treat it as soon as possible.
We understand that it can be difficult to thoroughly clean those grooves and crevices on the surface of your back teeth. With dental sealants, we can “seal” those areas so bacteria and food don’t get trapped there and lead to cavities. Applying a dental sealant is fast and painless!
Are you dealing with headaches, a sore jaw, facial pain, or difficult chewing? We can help you get relief! We’ll go over your symptoms to determine if you’re suffering with TMJ disorder, and we’ll lay out your treatment options depending on the causes of your specific case.
Have people told you you snore when you sleep? Or do you wake up abruptly gasping for air? Those are two of the signs of sleep apnea. We can diagnose this serious condition and provide you with solutions that’ll offer you much more restful sleep and energized days.
Restorative dental care is used to fix damaged or missing teeth so you can reclaim a healthy, fully functioning smile.
Part of maintaining great dental health is looking after your gums. Our expert team uses advanced laser technology to keep your gums free of disease and bacteria. Using dental lasers also speeds up recovery time for you!
If you have old, damaged mercury fillings and are in need of replacements, you came to the right place. We will return your mouth back to a healthy state with new fillings. We use updated metal-free, composite material that not only looks good but is healthier too. You won’t have to deal with super noticeable silver fillings any longer!
In just two visits, we can restore the appearance and strength of a weak or damaged tooth using a dental crown. All of our crowns are custom-made so they feel natural and give you back confidence in your smile.
If your tooth is damaged by decay or is cracked, but not enough to warrant a crown, we can repair it with an inlay or onlay. This procedure also allows us to keep more of your original tooth material intact while strengthening your tooth. We also make sure that the restoration blends in seamlessly with your tooth so you can enjoy a natural-looking appearance.
We understand how huge an impact a full, attractive smile can have on your life. If you are missing multiple teeth in a row, we can create a custom dental bridge to literally “bridge” that open space and restore your smile.
At Lybrook Dental Center, we take pride in providing dentures that look great and fit well. Even if you have lost teeth over time, you still deserve to enjoy an attractive full smile. Let us custom design natural-looking dentures that’ll have you back to chewing and smiling with confidence again.
Dental implants can actually be used to make your dentures fit better and stay in place. Denture stabilization using mini dental implants is a great solution for those dealing with ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures. You’ll be chewing and smiling with ease again in no time. Compared to standard implants, mini implants are more affordable. They are also a great choice for those who do not qualify as candidates for standard implants.
If you are missing one or more teeth, we want to help you find a long-lasting solution to your dental needs. For many patients, dental implants are a welcome alternative to other restorative options like dentures or bridges as they look and function much like real teeth.
If you are in pain and need a root canal, you don’t have to be afraid to get treatment. Our team combines a compassionate approach and leading-edge tools to make sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Thanks to advancements in dentistry, modern root canals are as simple as getting a routine filling!
Getting a tooth removed may sound a little scary, but we promise you that we’ll only ever recommend or perform an extraction if we’ve looked into all other options first. Tooth extractions are a simple, common procedure, and we do everything we can to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
Cosmetic dental care can enhance your smile by correcting crooked, discolored, unattractive teeth.
Damaged and unattractive misaligned teeth can easily be made a thing of the past with this simple restorative cosmetic procedure. Some of the most common reasons for dental bonding include to fill in a gap between teeth, to repair cracks in a tooth, and to change the shape of a tooth. We’ll take a look at your specific concern to determine if bonding makes the most sense for you. And don’t worry if not! We have a variety of other restorative and cosmetic procedures that we are sure can get you your perfect smile.
We want to help you achieve your best smile, and veneers are a great option for custom designing tooth color, shape, and spacing using thin shells of porcelain that we bond to your teeth. You’ll leave our office looking and feeling great!
What would you say if we told you you could permanently improve your smile without any painful procedures? It’s true! Lumineers® are super-thin sheets of porcelain that can fix both tooth shape and color. They are also more affordable and require less prep work compared to traditional veneers. Let us work with you to design your picture-perfect smile.
You don’t have to settle for tooth stains and discoloration. Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to dramatically makeover your smile! We’ve seen time and again how a whiter, brighter smile can change someone’s life. We can either make custom trays for you that you take home to whiten your teeth in your free time, or we can whiten your teeth right in our office in just one visit. Once you have it done you’ll want to show off your smile to everyone!
Braces aren’t your only option when it comes to fixing crooked teeth, gaps, or misalignment. Our office offers Invisalign®, a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses clear trays rather than brackets and wires. We’ll sit down with you to discuss what exactly it is that you’d like to change about your smile so we can develop a series of custom trays to get you to your goals. The best part is that these trays are nearly invisible so many people won’t even realize that you’re in the middle of straightening your teeth!
If you find yourself hiding your smile due to imperfections but you don’t want to spend years in noticeable metal braces, we have a great alternative for you. Six Month Smiles® cosmetic braces are an ideal way for adults to make changes to their smile in just a matter months! Dr. Carol and Dr. Scott are both certified Six Month Smile providers.
