At Santa Rosa Dental Care in Santa Rosa, CA, we schedule a lot of patients for cleaning, x-rays or treating teeth that have been cosmetic dentistrydamaged due to cavities. But we offer many more services to our patients, all aimed at improving the way they look and feel. Dr. Jeffrey Elliott and his competent, caring staff provide the following treatments and services for their patients:

Dental implants

These amazing restorations replace an entire missing tooth, from root to crown, using the latest in dental technology. A tiny metal post is inserted into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure at Santa Rosa Dental Care. The rest of the implant - the metal abutment and porcelain crown - are attached later, and the result is a permanent, stable and beautiful restoration that is indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. In order to properly design and place dental implants, your Santa Rosa dentist has completed extensive training.


If you still have your natural teeth, but they could use some cosmetic improvement, veneers could make a huge difference in your smile. Made from the same type of porcelain as dental implants, they are narrow tooth-shaped sections that your dentist attaches onto the front of your visible teeth. They can cover just about any type of cosmetic defect: gaps, overlaps, chipping or discoloration. Hollywood's brightest stars often use veneers to give them their camera-ready smiles.


One of the quickest, easiest and most affordable ways to improve your smile's appearance is through teeth whitening. At Santa Rosa Dental Care, whitening treatments take less than a half hour and can brighten your smile by up to eight shades. The results are immediate and long-lasting, with many patients going a year or more before needing a follow-up treatment.


For patients wanting a more traditional approach to tooth replacement, your Santa Rosa dentist offers dentures. These well-known devices are crafted from a plastic gum base and porcelain teeth to be realistic-looking as well as functional. Dentures can be partial - filling in the space for just a few teeth - or complete; this depends on your dental health. While not permanently affixed like dental implants, dentures from your dentist can help improve eating and speaking function, as well as your confidence.
