Comprehensive Dentistry for the Entire Family
At A Lifetime of Smiles, we work with our patients to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that will allow them to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. We perform a wide range of general dentistry services that involve the diagnosis, treatment, and maintenance of conditions and problems that affect the teeth, gums, and jaw. We also focus on prevention and gum care so that we can diagnose and treat problems before they become even more painful or expensive. We work with our patients to help them understand how keeping up with oral health helps improve their overall health as well. Regular dental visits can also significantly reduce the amount of money our patients would otherwise need to spend on dental treatment later in life. We truly want you and your family to enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles!
In addition to our general dentistry treatments, we also offer a number of restorative and cosmetic procedures. There’s something at A Lifetime of Smiles for everyone!
When you have healthy teeth, it’s easy to take things like eating, talking, smiling, and even laughing for granted. However, if you’ve lost healthy teeth, you know how embarrassing and uncomfortable these simple pleasures can become. With restorative treatments at A Lifetime of Smiles, these simple pleasures can become easier again. We will work with you to determine the best of several restorative dental treatment options.

Orthodontics at A Lifetime of Smiles
Straight teeth and a confident smile make a great first impression, especially for kids and teens. Just as importantly, straight teeth are also easier to clean, which means having straight teeth is important for your oral health. In some cases, orthodontic treatment can even correct a misaligned bite, which is one of the main causes of TMJ disorder and jaw pain.
Regardless of your age, Dr. Frank or Dr. Hoerner will work with you to develop a customized orthodontic treatment plan that will put you on the path to a straighter smile.
Braces have come a long way since they first made their debut in the early 1900s. Today’s braces are made of a light nickel-titanium material, and they’re smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than ever before. You can even change up the color of your ties at each follow-up appointment!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Periodontal (Gum) Care
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, half of American adults have gum disease. Gum disease ranges from gingivitis to the various forms and stages of periodontitis, and the prevalence of gum disease increases with age because teeth wear down and become more sensitive as time passes, gums naturally recede, and medications can affect oral health. If your gums feel tender or sore, or if they look red and swollen, you may have gum disease. Other warning signs include bleeding and/or receding gums, pain or sensitivity in your teeth (and even loose teeth caused by weakening gum fibers or bone loss), and persistent bad breath. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss as well as various serious health problems.
Treatment for Gum Disease
If you have any degree of gum disease, we can help. Gum disease used to frequently require surgery. While surgery is still sometimes necessary, many cases are now treated with less invasive techniques first, such as deep dental cleanings, local antibiotics, and special mouth rinses.
