Dr Doman has performed hundreds of cosmetic cases. He is one of the top Cosmetic dentists in the state.
Porcelain veneers are very thin, custom-made, shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, and/or length. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers. They are stronger and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.
Composite Veneers: Composite veneers are used to improve the color, shape, size and texture of teeth to make them more aesthetically pleasing. They can be used to fix minor chips and cracks in teeth. They are different from porcelain veneers in that they require little, if any, tooth surface reduction and the treatment can be completed in a single visit. However unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers can be prone to staining and may not last as long. To create composite veneers, composite material is applied to the front surfaces of the teeth and sculpted to the desired shape and finish.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth and to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. A crown will fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Crowns can be needed for several different reasons. These can include but are not limited to: Protecting a weak tooth from breaking or decay, restore an already broken or worn down tooth, cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there is not much tooth structure left, cosmetically cover a tooth and to strengthen a cracked tooth.
A root canal is a procedure in which we remove the nerve from the root of the tooth. It is mostly done to relieve pain caused by an inflamed nerve. Once the nerve is removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and then filled with a plastic material, called gutta percha. Removing the nerve from a tooth causes the tooth to die and become brittle. A crown is placed around the tooth to maintain its strength and to keep it from cracking.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, these two are anchoring teeth, and a false tooth/teeth in between. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
Dr. Doman will only place white fillings. When doing a silver/ amalgam filling, healthy parts of your tooth often must be removed to make a space large enough to hold an amalgam filling. Amalgam fillings can corrode or tarnish over time, causing discoloration where the filling meets the tooth. A traditional (non-bonded) amalgam filling does not bond (stick) to your tooth. The cavity preparation (the “pocket” in your tooth) requires undercuts or ledges to provide retention of the filling. Your dentist may have to remove additional tooth structure to establish good retention for the filling. White/ composite fillings bond to your tooth and require a lot less tooth structure being removed.
Dr. Doman offers Twinky Star for baby teeth fillings. This is a modern filling material in 7 colors that kids love. This helps reduce apprehension and nervousness and will make the kids treatment more enjoyable. The colors offered are pink, blue, green, gold, silver, orange, and lemon.

It is estimated by the American Dental Association that mouth guards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year in high school and collegiate football alone.
It is highly encouraged to let your dentist know if you participate in team sports or other activities with risks of injury to the teeth, jaw and oral soft tissues (mouth, lip, tongue, or inner lining of the cheeks). It is also recommended that people of all ages use a properly fitted mouth guard in any sporting or recreational activity that may pose a risk of injury. This is a simple procedure where impressions are taken to make a mold of your teeth. Once the guard is made, it is then fitted and taken home.
Our in office whitening is a way to whiten your teeth that delivers optimum results in a short amount of time. During this procedure, teeth are coated with a whitening solution on the front surface. After that is applied, a curing light will be used to activate the whitening solution. This will be left on the teeth for about 60-90 min. Avoiding foods and beverages that have a high level of pigment, such as coffee, tomato sauce or juice, yellow mustard, or red wine and tobacco use for 24 hours after the procedure will allow the enamel pores to close to prevent re-staining and allow for optimal results.
All non-surgical periodontal services are performed by our hygienist. We have various periodontal services to help solve gum disease.
Scaling and Root planing
Scaling and Root planing: When a periodontal reading reaches 5mm deep or more, a scaling and root planing procedure is recommended. This procedure planes (or smoothes) the surface of your roots under your gums. It is meant to clean off the plaque on the portion of your teeth that are under your gums. Typically the patient must be numbed for comfort. It, also, must be followed by a years worth of maintenance cleanings for successful healing.
This cleaning is also a deep cleaning, but it is not so deep as to get to the roots like a scaling and root planing does, and there is no need to be numbed for this procedure. It is used when the patient has excess plaque and calculus that interferes with the ability of the dentist to perform a comprehensive evaluation. If the patient has excess plaque, but does not quite have gum disease, and the hygienist must spend additional and extra time to clean the mouth, then this is the type of cleaning that is performed.
A periodontal maintenance visit is a visit that will take place separate from and after a scaling and root planning. This visit that will be scheduled every 3 months until the gum and tissue have been cleared of all gum disease. Periodontal maintenance visits are important and even vital in making sure that the gum disease is completely cured. The maintenance cleaning is a cleaning that cleans the area above the gum line as well as a cleaning in the deeper pockets below the gum line. For those with gum disease, frequent removal of the bacteria from under the gum line can control the inflammation and can often prevent the further breakdown of the bone and gum supporting your teeth.
Our hygienist places ARESTIN® in the pockets below your gum line. This may happen at the time of SRP or on a follow-up visit. You may also receive ARESTIN® during routine periodontal maintenance. Arestin® is a form of antibiotic used to help fight bacteria causing gum disease.
Digital dental x-rays are safe. They have very low levels of radiation. Digital x-rays use about 80 percent less radiation than conventional ones. In general, dental x-rays emit lower levels of radiation than other medical x-rays. Radiographs show the condition of your teeth, their roots, jaw placement, and any decay. They can help detect the presence or degree of gum disease, abscesses, and abnormal growths
Nitrous oxide or “Laughing Gas” is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off within 5 minutes once the mask is removed.
An implant is a metal bar that is placed in the bone and under the gums and is meant to replace a tooth that is missing. It must remain in place for around 3 months after placement before it can be restored. To restore it, an abutment is placed inside the implant. This abutment is an extension of the implant above the gums. Once the abutment is in place, a crown is put around it to complete the restoration.
