Crowns and Bridges

Dr. Shumate uses crowns and bridges to restore and enhance damaged teeth or take the place of missing teeth. A crown covers a damaged tooth entirely and not only strengthens a tooth but can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, and alignment. A bridge is an ideal method to fill the space created by missing teeth.

Smile Whitening

Many everyday things like coffee, tea, and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to dramatically brighten your smile for that dazzling smile you deserve.

Dr. Shumate uses take-home prefabricated trays, or performs in-office whitening.

Is Sedation Dentistry
Right for You?

Patients can confuse sedation with pain relief. At Porters Neck Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, our patients don’t feel a thing during any procedures due to our anesthetics. Dr. Dana Shumate offers sedation, not for pain, but to help patients deal with intense feelings of fear and anxiety that arise during their visit. After receiving sedation and completing their treatments, patients often experience a change in the entire way they view dental appointments.

Mercury-Free Restorations

The standard silver filling contains mercury. Dr. Shumate 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 is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a natural-looking result.

3D Imaging & Impressions

This allows our practice to generate a detailed, accurate 3D image of your jaw, mouth, and teeth, and measure bone density, which is essential for placing dental implants.

Dr. Shumate and his team use digital impressions to take an accurate 3D image of your teeth, including your jaw, without the traditional messy goop used in the past.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain custom-made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front teeth to create a beautiful smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. Veneers at Porters Neck Cosmetic and Family Dentistry are custom-made for each patient with wafer-thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth.

Tooth-Colored Bonding

For stained, chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth that need repair, Dr. Shumate often recommends dental bonding as a low-cost option to improve your smile. Dental bonding materials bond to the tooth’s structure that is being restored. The resin is available in many shades to match the color of your other teeth.

Dr. Shumate uses top-quality materials allowing our dentures to have remarkable longevity and an exceptional fit and finish. In addition, our dentures are custom-fit to your jaw to ensure you get a comfortable and natural feeling. They can be permanently affixed with dental implants as well.
