We provide emergency dental services. If you aren’t sure whether your situation is an emergency, ask yourself how much pain you are experiencing.

South Lake Union neighborhood residents find the updated technology and equipment at nearby Downtown Seattle Dentists Office identifies problems quickly so the dentist can render the proper treatment. Emergency care includes:
- Broken or loose fillings and crowns.
- Extractions that need immediate attention.

Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is an advanced method of saving a natural tooth from extraction. Your mouth is numbed with local anesthetic. The dentist drills a hole just a bit deeper than what’s needed to fix a cavity. The nerves, pulp, and blood vessels are removed from the root canal. Then the inside of the tooth and canals are cleaned and disinfected. A soft mixture much like gum is put into the tooth, which is covered with a temporary cap until a crown is made to fit the tooth. The extreme pain has already subside, and you will soon forget it was even there.
Braces are a traditional way of correcting misaligned teeth. The increased number of teenagers and adults wanting to straighten their smile without using obvious metal braces and rubber bands has led to options like Invisalign. Your bite alignment is corrected with the use of custom-made straightening trays that fit the teeth and gum line. It’s easy to floss and brush using this nearly invisible method developed by the lab in response data sent in by orthodontists. Make an appointment to discuss the best option for you.
Dentists have the ability to improve the look of a patient’s smile, mouth, and teeth. South Lake Union cosmetic dentists are able to safely whiten teeth with special bleach, reshape teeth, and close gaps. Strong materials are colored to match teeth and used to repair chips and fill cavities.
Brighter Smiles with Porcelain Veneers
You won’t believe the beautiful smile reflected in the mirror when Dr. Anderson or Dr. Dellisanti fits your teeth with custom-made porcelain veneers. The stain-resistant, thin shells cover discolorations and imperfections on your teeth. They’re designed to match the natural color of your teeth and fit into the gum line to look even more natural. Your mouth and teeth must be able to accept veneers. Impressions and X-rays will be taken and sent to the lab to be built. After they are returned, your teeth are cleaned, polishes, and buffed so the veneer fits properly. Each one is held in place by special cement.
Restoration with Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
Although porcelain crowns are expensive and require several visits to reach completion, the beauty it delivers is amazing. They make a repaired tooth look natural when used to cover a large filling or broken tooth. Crowns are strong and durable. Once bonded, patients can eat just about any type of food without problems.
South Lake Union dentists may recommend a bridge to cover a gap caused by a missing tooth. It prevents remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
Dentures and Implants
Replace missing teeth with dentures or implants. Posts hold the implants, which look, act, and feel like your natural teeth. Today’s dentures are personalized to look natural, stay in place, and help you eat the foods you enjoy.
Our periodontists diagnose, treat, and prevent periodontal disease. The halitosis and abscesses related to this dental problem will disappear once the situation is corrected.
