How can you improve my smile?

Whether you’re looking to improve the function and aesthetic of your smile or need to rid your mouth of infection and decay, we offer various services to meet your needs. Our first focus is always on prevention. 

During your biannual appointments, we’ll discuss any problem areas before they become more complex and provide helpful tips on ways you can improve your oral care routine. If you have tooth decay, we may recommend a filling or crown to restore your teeth to their best health and prevent further damage. If your tooth has suffered severe damage or you’ve lost a tooth, we may recommend a dental implant or a dental bridge.

If you want to enhance the beauty of your smile, we offer various cosmetic services that can dramatically change the appearance of your teeth. Whether you want to brighten your smile with a teeth whitening treatment or achieve perfectly straight teeth with veneers, our cosmetic services will give you one more reason to smile.

At our office, we accept cash, checks, and major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also work with a variety of insurance companies to ensure you receive maximum benefits.

I have dental anxiety, how can you help?

Dr. Hausten is trained to assist patients who experience dental anxiety. If you have a phobia of visiting the dentist or a low pain tolerance, be sure to let us know and we’ll take every precaution necessary to keep you comfortable. 

Dr. Hausten will always numb the treatment area prior to any procedure that may cause discomfort. If you have dental anxiety, there are a few ways you can put your worries at rest, including:

  • Bring headphones to your appointment if the sound of drilling bothers you
  • Schedule your appointment at a time when you won’t feel rushed to arrive
  • Avoid caffeine prior to your appointment
  • Use hand gestures if you’re experiencing discomfort
  • Refrain from holding your breath
