With Lumineers®, Dr. Hay can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are long-lasting and provide a quicker, pain-free, reversible approach to veneers.
Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable. Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.
We offer one visit dental crowns, no temporary and second visit required with Cerec.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.
Are you tired of or unable to tolerate your CPAP? Call to learn if our oral sleep appliance may be a good option for you.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), also referred to as TMJ by most, is a condition of the muscles and ligaments around your jaw joint not working properly causing them to become inflamed and irritated. This can lead to locking/popping of the jaw joint, aching around the ear, pain around the jaw joint, and difficulty or pain when chewing. Dr. Hay is a neuromuscular dentist that specializes in treatment for TMJ with an orthotic. The appliance is made to be placed over the lower teeth to position the jaw in a muscularly stable position. Most patients initially start by wearing the orthotic all the time and then graduate to only wearing it at night.
An orthotic is the initial phase of treatment, patient’s may choose to have full mouth re-construction to correct their TMJ problems.
IV General and Moderate Sedation available. Sleep through your next dental appointment- provided by our anesthesiologist partners.

Are you one of the millions of adults in need of adult braces who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed of your smile? Have you avoided treatment because you don't want to wear metal braces for years? Have you been worried about the cost of traditional orthodontic treatments?

Composite bonding resin is a white, tooth colored material that can be shaded to match your teeth. This material can give you a low-cost improvement in your smile.
The common silver filling contains mercury. Our practice uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural‑looking result.
If you are tired of the metal-colored fillings, ask us about replacing those fillings with tooth colored composite today.
Snap-On Smile® is an affordable, non-invasive, and completely reversible cosmetic removable arch that fits over your existing teeth. It can easily and painlessly give you a beautiful smile. Call us for an appointment.
Recent findings have shown that sometimes good oral hygiene isn't enough to stop cavities. Tooth decay is caused by a bacterial infection known as dental caries. Acids from sugars, foods, or medications can cause an oral environment at risk for cavities that can be measured with new PH detecting technology known as CariFree®.
Dr. Hay promotes long-term dental health as an alternative to simply treating signs and symptoms by filling cavities. Our office can perform a quick, painless one-minute screening to determine your risk for cavities. If harmful decay-causing bacteria are identified, treatment of this infection may be recommended.
Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.
Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.
Improving your oral health in general is a great way to improve the outcomes of treatment for abscessed teeth and periodontal disease.
Oral systemic health is the connection between oral health and overall health. Countless studies have demonstrated a link between poor oral health and systemic disease such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and even pregnancy complications.
Like most services, the cost of treating gum disease is based upon the time required and the difficulty of the procedures involved. Each person has unique and individualized problems which must be accounted for in determining a proper course of treatment. A proper evaluation will determine the extent of the disease and map out the best course for treatment.
Laser dentistry is used in a variety of procedures, including:
- Teeth that have sensitivity to hot and cold can be treated with dental lasers that seal tubules on the tooth’s root.
- Treating gum disease with a gentle laser to kill bacteria down in pockets during a deep cleaning. Also, it is beneficial at killing bacteria below the gumline during regular cleanings and perio maintenance to keep gum tissue looking and feeling healthy.
- Whitening teeth with a laser in office to speed up results.
- Soft tissue procedures including removing a "gummy smile," crown lengthening, frenectomy/tongue tie.
- Treating cold sores. Lasers can minimize healing time and reduce pain from cold sores.
