Porcelain veneers are an impressive and popular procedure that boost your overall look and smile. They can correct chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned teeth, poor bondings, old fillings, or oddly-shaped gums. As one of the many dedicated dentists in Shawnee, Dr. Dervin only uses the most advanced materials to make your dream smile a reality.
We offer three teeth whitening options, including home-bleaching and ZOOM! in-office treatment. Our most popular treatment is ZOOM! because it brightens your teeth anywhere from 5-8 shades in about an hour and will include a set of touch up trays for ongoing maintenance. For those with extremely dark and discolored teeth, ask us about DEEP BLEACHING.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and it will leave a lasting impression with everyone you meet. Using his advanced training from LVI, Dr. Dervin uses modern techniques to help create an exceptional smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
Dental implants are a wonderful way of replacing a missing tooth, and they look and feel more natural than other types of restorations. They help to prevent bone loss and they don’t require changes to adjacent teeth. Dr. Dervin is a diplomate of the International Dental Implant Association, which means he has completed the training necessary to place and restore the more advanced dental implant cases. Dr. Dervin will design a beautiful restoration to blend with your smile, so you’ll walk out of our office with confidence.
Dental hygiene means more than simply getting your teeth cleaned. Everybody’s immune system is unique. We take a comprehensive approach with our evolutionary hygiene philosophy to ensure your optimum oral health. After all, healthy gums are the foundation of a beautiful smile.
No one ever looks forward to their dental visit when a root canal enters into the discussion. When the nerve inside your tooth becomes infected, root canal therapy may be the first step to returning your mouth to optimum health. We’ll see to it that you are completely comfortable throughout the procedure, and in most cases, we’ll complete the treatment in one visit. The bottom line is, you’ll wake up tomorrow with no tooth pain and a brighter outlook for the future.
If you suffer from symptoms such as migraines, jaw pain, sinus problems, earaches, ringing in the ears, dizziness, or teeth grinding and clenching, neuromuscular dentistry by Dr. Richard Dervin, and his expert team can help put an end to your pain! Neuromuscular dentistry allows Dr. Richard Dervin to approach your care and treatment with a broader “whole-body” focus. Dr. Dervin uses specialized equipment to study the pattern of your jaw movements and then diagnose the exact cause and nature of the problem, which allows us to determine the proper course of treatment.
We promise never to use metal fillings. Metal-free fillings outperform old materials in several important ways. They match existing tooth colors, decrease further decay, and have no reactions with temperature. If you have metal fillings, let’s discuss how we can replace them with durable, beautiful non-metal fillings.
With Clear Correct, you can straighten your smile without braces. As one of the few dentists in Shawnee who uses Clear Correct, you can finally discover the joy of showing off your smile. Clear Correct uses clear aligners that are nearly invisible. They are also removable, so you can eat your favorite foods and keep your teeth clean.
Sometimes a filling cannot do the job of restoring cracked, worn, or damaged teeth back to health. Natural-looking porcelain crowns and bridges are beautiful and will allow you the ability and confidence to eat whatever you want with complete comfort.
It should never be a difficult task to go to the dentist. Would it be nice if you could put all your fears and anxiety behind you? Dr. Dervin and sedation will do just that. You’ll be relaxed and worry-free about receiving the care you deserve.
If your gums are receding, the Pinhole Surgical Technique can restore your gums without knives or stitches. It’s minimally invasive with short healing times, so you can enjoy your new healthy gums while going about your day. Watch our video to learn more about this procedure with Dr. Dervin.
‘‘We were patients of Dr. Dervin about six years ago, moved out of the area, and then recently moved back. My husband and I both had our routine exams and were still just as pleased with the office as we were five years ago. The staff is super friendly and efficient. The office is very nice and accommodating. Finally, the hygienists and Dr. Dervin make you feel so welcome and comfortable! While we had lived in other parts of the country and world, other dentists commented on impeccable dental work on my husband's teeth!
