Regular dental exams and x-rays are important to ensuring your dental health. Dr. Young reviews every x-ray and provides a thorough exam because your dental health is the key to your overall health. Checking your teeth, gums and bones are vital!
Cleaning & Prevention
How Clean are Your Pearly Whites? If you had to think about it, you’re probably due for a check up! Your oral health is important to maintaining your overall health. Brushing and flossing isn’t enough! Make an appointment with our sparkling hygienist team for a dental cleaning and preventative care check up.
Brushing & Flossing
Brushing and Flossing might seem like a simple part of your daily routine, however if you are not doing it correctly you could be damaging your gums instead of helping them. Our team will ensure you know how to brush and floss properly in order to prevent future dental problems.
Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, use a tooth-colored resin to fill in cavities. The fillings have a natural appearance and enable it to blend with the surrounding tooth structure.
CROWN AND BRIDGE
A crown is a dental restoration that completely covers a single tooth with new material. Some people also call it a “cap”. Crowns can be made from many different materials, like gold, porcelain, a tooth-colored metal called zirconia, or any combination of the above. A crown’s purpose is to restore the tooth back to normal shape and function.
This means it will replace any missing tooth structure, reinforce and brace any cracks, and stabilize weakened teeth. Crowns are necessary for teeth that have a significant breakdown due to large cavities, cracks, or extreme wear. We also use crowns to protect teeth with root canal treatments, which are prone to breaking.
A bridge is a dental treatment using multiple crowns connected together in order to replace a missing tooth. The most common is a three-unit bridge, which uses two teeth as anchors for one replacement tooth.
Full mouth restoration
Many times our patients are self-conscious about their smile due to injuries, oral health issues, severe grinding, or decay and want a smile that feels and looks healthy. A full mouth restoration is when both the upper and lower teeth are restored together to bring the teeth and bite into normal function whereas a smile makeover is done solely for aesthetics.
If you are missing teeth, you may have noticed that your ability to eat and talk is impaired. You may be embarrassed about your smile and feel inhibited in social situations. Dental implants can give you a new lease on life by providing you with the ability to once again eat, talk, and smile bright. Replacing missing teeth can also improve your facial structure, preventing a sunken look.
SPLINT THERAPY & NIGHT GUARDS
Occasional teeth grinding and clenching is common and experienced by most people at one time or another. However, for some people, teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism) is a chronic problem. Dr. Young wants you to protect your smile and well-being. She utilizes custom splint therapy and night guards to help with:
- Jaw pain
- Face pain
- Neck pain
- Jaw disorders
- Enamel wear
- Tooth and restoration breakage
Designing bright smiles is what we do best! They say, “Your smile speaks before you do”. Therefore, if you are feeling self-conscious about your smile, allow us the opportunity to design the smile of you’ve always wanted.

Dr. Young designs dazzling porcelain crowns, veneers, bridges, composite fillings and provides a dazzling teeth whitening service.
A sparkling smile is the first thing people can see! Veneers are designed to revitalize your smile and boost your confidence. If you have stained, broken, misaligned, or fractured teeth, then veneers could be a great option for you. Dr. Young diagnoses and custom designs each tooth to create a beautiful smile.
Using tooth colored filling material Dr. Young is able to restore chipped or broken teeth, as well as cover the entire tooth to improve esthetics. The material is bonded directly to the tooth to allow changes in shade as well as the shape of the teeth. This is a fabulous option for improving esthetics without reducing the tooth structure, which is needed for porcelain veneers.
Nothing brings confidence like a bright smile! Crowns, or ‘caps’ can be designed to revitalize your smile and boost your confidence. Crowns not only look beautiful, but also protects and strengthens the integrity of your tooth structure.
You might Consider Crowns if…
- You have broken, or fractured teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Tooth has a root canal
- Or you’ve been thinking about a cosmetic enhancement
Dark, stained and discolored teeth have many causes. Coffee, wine, sodas and smoking are most common. Injury and childhood use of certain medications are also responsible for dulling otherwise bright smiles. Fortunately, there are many ways to restore the luster of a faded smile. We utilize Zoom Whitening for in-office treatments and provide take-home whitening kits as well.
Zoom Whitening brightens a smile up to 8 shades whiter in just 45 minutes. You receive outstanding results with little to no sensitivity!
In July we were in Texas for a family get together. During this time we were having family pictures taken and I wasn’t really able to enjoy myself as I was so self conscious about my two front teeth that were chipped. Someone recommended Dr. Young and I was hesitant because my dentist in NC said the only way they could be fixed was to do crowns on both teeth. Long story made short . . . I reluctantly made an appointment and have never been happier about my dental work. I had the most thorough “bite” exam and came out smiling proudly. Dr. Young is personable, competent and I had complete faith in her. She has an amazing staff also. Her office staff and assistants put me at ease immediately. Highly recommend this office.

Not sure that anybody likes to go to the dentist. But I am an especially big baby. Dr. Young takes excellent care when I have to have extra work done. Extremely professional in every area. She and her team deserve five stars all the way around. You can tell I’m completely satisfied by the big smile on my face.
Whether it’s getting your teeth cleaned or fixing a broken, discolored tooth, Dr Young and her team are wonderful. They pay attention to every detail and will do what it takes to make sure you are taken care of.

Finally I’ve found a dentist that is a joy to see. I dreaded going to the dentist all my life but Dr. Young and her amazing staff have made my experience life changing. They’re professional, thorough, and kind plus much more. They all make you feel like family.

I've tried at home teeth whitening kits for years but never had any positive results really. I did one short treatment with Dr Young's office and the difference was immediate! In the end, I probably wasted just as much money buying at home kits than what I spent with Dr. Young, plus her office gave me custom trays with prescription strength treatment to take home for follow ups that will last me a long time. I should have done this years ago!

Perfectly Paired Botox and Fillers
Dr. Young not only provides expert dental restoration but perfectly paired botox and fillers. Dr. Young is certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE).
We offer Botox and Juvederm services because we believe that beautiful skin is the perfect match for beautiful teeth. Teeth and skin go hand-in-hand, and while routine care for both do wonders, sometimes you need a little boost to rejuvenate your confidence. Over time your skin changes due to gravity, muscle movement, sun damage, weight loss, and age. You know those fun lines that start popping up across your forehead, near your eyes, and around your mouth from age and laughter?
Whatever the reason, no judgment here, Dr. Young is ready to provide you with the rejuvenation you desire.
Botox + JUVEDERM (FILLERS)
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. It is FDA–approved and the go-to treatment for wrinkles and lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
This procedure is performed in our office by Dr. Young and patients see a beautiful smoothing of the wrinkles in 3-5 days after treatment.
Once the Botox begins to take effect, your facial muscles will appear relaxed and wrinkle-free, seemingly care-free – like the 21-year old version of yourself. *wink wink You will feel rejuvenated and fabulous! Dr. Young typically treats the same areas every three to four months after treatment.
Dr. Young utilizes fillers to help diminish facial lines and restore youthful fullness. Dr. Young will assess your skin and work with you to decide the best course of action. The effects last for 6-18 months depending on the type of filler used, how you take care of your skin, and how your face continues to age. So, whether you want to plump your pout, fill in sullen under eyes, or get those rosy cheeks back, Dr. Young is here for you.
