If you have missing teeth, dental implants are a permanent solution that can help preserve adjacent teeth, prevent bone loss, and can promote healthy gums; all while restoring your beautiful smile. Dental implants look and feel completely natural, and also allow you to chew properly, so you can once again enjoy the foods you love.
Sometimes emergency problems arise even if we stay current on our dental check ups. When a dental emergency happens, such as an injury to a tooth, mouth or jaw, you need to see an emergency dentist right away to take care of the dental accident. Delaying treatment for a dental emergency will increase the risk of permanent damage later, possibly leading to more extensive and expensive care down the road.
Would you like to fill in your unsightly gap caused by a missing tooth? If so, dental bridges are a great option. A bridge is a false tooth that is custom-shaped to fit in the gap between your teeth. Dental bridges can help beautify your smile, improve your speech, and can also reduce your risk of gum disease and bite issues that cause other dental challenges.

Children should have their first visit to the dentist at the age of one and a half years old. Giving children a positive experience at a young age is essential to their dental health and dental “expectations”. The growth and development of the facial and oral anatomy will be evaluated, because early intervention of any abnormal development is key to optimal health and well-being.
ClearCorrect Orthodontic Braces
Our braces are digitally designed custom invisible braces, created to correct teeth that are out of alignment and enhance smile esthetics. This allows for ideal oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment. No metal and no wires.
ClearCorrect clear aligners straighten teeth invisibly, without metal braces. Dr. Shea Stevens will make a series of aligners customized to apply pressure to the teeth that you want to move. Dr. Stevens will evaluate your progress and give you new sets of aligners every 4–6 weeks. You’ll wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, progressing through each step until your treatment is done.
It’s easy to remove aligners and eat whatever you like. There are no wires to trap food or get in the way when you floss. Clear aligners show off your smile, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
One of our effective dental services includes dental crowns. These quality crowns help restore damaged, broken, or decaying teeth. We design these restorations to seamlessly blend in with your other teeth, and they can be added during just one regular office visit.
Snoring is also a medical issue. It reduces deep, restorative sleep, and being sleep deprived has a negative impact on well-being and quality of life we lead. Snorers often feel tired and sleepy, have morning headaches and dry mouth, reduced blood oxygen levels, higher blood pressure, and other associated health issues.
At Smiles by Stevens, as part of our premier dental services, we use tooth-colored, composite fillings, so that no one is able to see that you had a cavity filled.
At Smiles by Stevens, your first choice for complete and partial dentures, as well as dental implants, we offer solutions that are often used to anchor full or partial dental plates. Our experienced staff will carefully select the ideal sites for dental implants to act as secure anchors, placing attachments inside the dentures where they will not be seen.
Simple extractions are performed with local anesthesia and oral sedation. Bone grafting procedures are done to restore the bone quality and quantity for future placement of implants to restore your smile. Dr. Stevens provides many oral surgery procedures himself. This allows us to keep our patients under one roof and comfortable with one doctor. Dr. Stevens’ specialized training allows us to do this and we feel it helps in our patient’s continued care.
Sleep apnea is a dangerous disorder that causes sleepers to stop breathing during the night. Without enough oxygen, the brain must wake up the body of the sleeper, so that breathing is restored. The pause in breathing is often caused by an obstruction in the airway that blocks the flow of air into the lungs. Sleepers that are disturbed frequently throughout the night by sleep apnea often feel tired much of the time, and frequently disturb their bed partners.
Snoring, another disorder caused by obstructions, is often more stressful for the snoring sleeper’s partner.
Both sleep apnea and snoring can be corrected with the use of the TAP! dental appliance that holds the lower jaw in a forward position, so that it does not shift or fall open during sleep. The TAP! device can be adjusted by the patient while it is inside the mouth, and many patients experience relief from symptoms as soon as their first night with TAP!
Find out if TAP! might be right for you by contacting our office today and speaking with one of our staff.
Perfect and symmetrical teeth are no accident with innovative porcelain veneers. In certain cases, porcelain veneers can even be the perfect substitute for Invisalign. It’s never been easier to correct your chipped, crooked, stained, or gapped teeth without the inconvenience or expense of braces. In just one visit, you can have the great smile you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers are chosen more and more frequently because of their immediate and lasting results.
Most people probably grind and clench their teeth from time to time. Occasional teeth grinding, medically called bruxism, does not usually cause harm; but when teeth grinding occurs on a regular basis the teeth can become damaged and other oral health complications can arise.
In some cases, chronic teeth grinding can result in a fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth. The chronic grinding may wear teeth down to stumps. When these events happen, bridges, crowns, root canals, implants, partial dentures, and even complete dentures may be needed.
Not only can severe grinding damage teeth and result in tooth loss, it can also affect your jaw, cause or worsen TMD/TMJ, and even change the appearance of your face.
Stop the wear process of your teeth from grinding and clenching with a custom made night guard. These appliances are worn at night to deprogram your jaw muscles from stress related over-function. Subconscious clenching and grinding generate more force on your teeth, thus more damage. Adult teeth will not grow back. Worn teeth can lead to TMJ discomfort, tooth fracture, stress cracks, sensitivity, gum recession, bone loss, loose teeth, and an aged appearance.
A comprehensive smile evaluation is the first step to success. The shape of your face, skin tone, jaw line, lip position, contour and color of your gums, bite dynamics, and tooth shape and size are all taken into consideration while custom designing your one of a kind smile. No two smiles are the same. Smiles by Stevens can create smile makeovers with cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, and cosmetic dental implant reconstruction. You deserve a unique smile that fits you!
Root canal therapy is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. A root canal is performed when the nerve of the tooth becomes damaged. During a root canal procedure, the nerve is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. This procedure is very comfortable due to state-of-the-art technology at Smiles by Stevens.
