Dental Services

Ahrens Family Dentistry is a family based practice offering a variety of precedures. From dental cleanings, whitening treatments, and fillings or crowns, to veneers, implants, mouthguards and nightguards, we have you covered.


A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist. Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning should include polishing, fluoride application, and dental hygiene instruction. In some cases the doctor may recommend a separate appointment for scaling and root planing.


A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. If you have a tooth that requires a filling, the dentist will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a filling material. A filling helps prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter.

There are a variety of filling materials available including resin composite and porcelain. The dentist will work with you to determine which material is best, depending on the extent of repair, where the filling is needed, and cost.

Composite resins are custom made to the exact color of your natural teeth, creating a more natural appearance. Porcelain fillings are called inlays or onlays and are custom created in a lab and then bonded to the tooth. They can be matched to the color of the tooth and resist staining. A porcelain restoration generally covers most of the tooth, making the filling nearly undetectable. If decay or a fracture has damaged a large portion of the tooth, a tooth-colored crown (or "cap") may be recommended. Decay that has reached the nerve may be treated through root canal therapy or through a procedure called pulp capping.


Tooth whitening is a popular procedure to make teeth whiter and brighter, and therefore more attractive. Bleaching can be used to whitening stained and discolored teeth, or simply to enhance a dull smile. Either way, tooth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure ideal for most patients.

Our office uses a whitening treatment you can use while in the comfort of your own home, Tray Whitening. We will first take an impression of your mouth to create a customized clear whitening trays for you to wear. Within a few days your trays will be ready to be picked up and we will show you how to apply the special bleaching material to the trays. The whitening gel trays should be worn 30-60 minutes up to twice a day. At the end of this period, you will see maximum whitening results that are nothing short of dazzling. Occasional treatment can be used at your convenience to maintain your new smile.
