Soon, you’ll be running around getting ready for the holidays. But is your smile ready? Do you have missing teeth or ones that hurt when you chew? Call us today at our St. John, IN dental office (219-322-9920) or our Valparaiso, IN dental office (219-462-1970). At both locations, you can get restorative dentistry to repair and replace teeth. You can have a great smile for the holidays and long after that.

What Could Happen To Your Smile

   Your teeth are supposed to last a lifetime, and most will. However, it’s not hard to hurt your teeth. Sports injuries, accidents, and even neglecting your oral hygiene can create problems such as:

  • Missing teeth (fell out or needed extraction)
  • Chips in your enamel
  • Hairline cracks
  • Cavities, both small and big
  • Infected teeth

   Regardless of how it happened, you end up with a smile that can embarrass you.

   By calling either of our Indiana dental offices, you can get restorative dentistry treatments like these:

  • Air abrasion (for tiny cavities)
  • Fillings (silver and tooth-colored)
  • Dental crowns
  • Root canal treatment
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants

Enjoy The Holidays More With A Great Smile


   Here’s how your holiday season can be that much better with restorative dentistry.

   When it’s time to take holiday photos, you’ll be happy to smile for the camera.

   The holiday season is the perfect time for taking photos. Candid shots in the kitchen and formal shots by the tree are almost guaranteed. Unless you plan on covering your mouth in each one, your damaged smile will be shown.

   That is, unless you call us at either our St. John or Valparaiso locations. Our dentists have advanced training in restorative dentistry and can help with dental implants, dental crowns, porcelain veneers, and more. Your smile can look fantastic in photos.

   You can eliminate the pain you feel when you chew.

   When your teeth are damaged or infected, chewing can be painful. That’s because eating food puts pressure on your teeth with every bite. When you have cavities or an infection, that pressure can trigger your pain.

   Instead of skipping the holiday dinners and parties, call our Indiana dental offices today for restorative dentistry. Dental crowns, fillings, and root canal treatments can help you eat your meals without pain or discomfort. Thankfully, our dentists have the training and experience you need for such treatments done right.

   You can protect damaged teeth so they don’t get any worse.


   Some damage (especially cracks in the enamel) can get worse over time. That’s because the same pressure that can trigger pain can increase the damage. A small crack will likely grow over time with that pressure.

   By calling us today, you can get restorative dentistry to prevent the damage getting worse over the holidays. Dental crowns, fillings, and porcelain veneers can seal up damage and make sure they don’t get worse. These dental restorations can also make your smile look great, too.

   You can smile with confidence when it’s time for parties and gatherings.

   You’re probably going to see lots of people over the holidays. That means you’re also going to be showing your smile to lots of people. If you have damaged or missing teeth, you can easily feel embarrassed and less confident meeting those people.

   Restorative dentistry from highly trained dentists like ours can help — if you call us today and schedule your next appointment. Dental bridges and dental implants can make sure your smile is complete. Porcelain veneers seal up damage and hide it so your smile looks white and healthy.

   Call us TODAY at our St. John, IN dental office (219-322-9920) or our Valparaiso, IN dental office (219-462-1970). Our dentists have many years of experience treating damaged and lost teeth with restorative dentistry. You can have a great smile for the holiday season, but you need to call us first.
