Our Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry Services in Federal Way
Metal-free fillings are available for all cavity and filling restorations. Our office uses composite resin fillings for cavities and for those who would like their silver amalgam fillings replaced.
The benefits of composite resins are not only that they’re aesthetically nicer than silver fillings since the shades can be matched to your natural tooth color, but also that they allow us to keep more of your natural tooth intact than silver amalgam fillings. We believe in conservative dentistry, so the more natural tooth structure we can help you save, the better off your teeth will be in the future.
Fillings without needles!
With our Solea dental laser, Dr. Einowski can perform fillings without anesthesia (no more needles and numbing!). This means we can complete your filling in a quarter of the time than with traditional techniques.
Will your insurance cover it?
Most insurance companies now cover composite resin fillings. Those insurances that don’t will still pay up to the cost of silver amalgam fillings, with the patient paying a minimal difference between costs.
Crowns: Crowns are needed when a tooth is severely cracked, damaged, or experienced major trauma. The crown (also known as a cap), can restore your tooth’s function and beauty, capable of performing the everyday actions of a natural tooth.
Bridges: If you’re looking for a way to replace missing teeth, a bridge can fill that gap. It consists of one or more artificial teeth anchored in place by neighboring teeth on each side of the artificial tooth. A bridge can restore your smile’s aesthetics, bite, and prevent neighboring teeth from shifting.
All of our bridges and crowns are crafted by our experienced dental lab. In the end, you’ll walk out of our office with a beautiful, functioning smile you’ll love for years to come!
Dental Implants at our Federal Way dental office are the premier solution to replace missing teeth. They have many benefits that can truly change your life:
- Replace single or multiple missing teeth
- Secure and stabilize your dentures
- Help you enjoy your favorite foods
- Help you speak clearly without slurring or mumbling your speech
- Correct bite issues due to missing teeth
- Stop jawbone deterioration
- Improve your appearance (you may even look 10 years younger!)
An implant is a titanium post directly placed into the jawbone. The jawbone will fuse with the implant, much like a natural tooth root. After the tissue and surrounding jawbone have healed, an abutment and crown are placed on top of the implant, creating a functioning and beautiful tooth.
Typically, you would have to travel to a specialist to get an implant placed. However, Dr. Einowski has received the training and education to place implants right in our office. This means you’ll see the same faces from start to finish without the hassle of bouncing around to different offices.
We can do most extractions in the office. For the majority of wisdom teeth extractions, we will refer to one of our preferred oral surgeons. We offer the option of adding bone graft treatment when you have an extraction done to prevent bone loss. Bone loss is a common consequence of adult tooth loss and periodontal disease. The loss of bone can reduce your options for replacing missing teeth with implants or bridges.
We can treat most root canal cases in office versus having to send out to an outside specialist. Root canals save teeth from decay. During root canal treatment, the doctor drills through the tooth to access the root canals, where the infected pulp is then removed and cleaned out. The canals are then filled with a rubber-like material to fill the now empty canal space. Since the pulp is removed, the tooth is unable to function as a living “thing” and therefore, over time, the tooth weakens, making it more susceptible to fracture. It is essential to complete a permanent restoration as soon as possible after treatment. A crown is often recommended for the permanent restoration, but the doctor will diagnose which will be best, usually before the root canal treatment starts.
Teeth whitening is a common and affordable cosmetic dentistry option to help give your smile an extra boost.
We offer two types of whitening options:
- Zoom! Teeth Whitening brightens teeth in about an hour. So you get whiter and brighter teeth in just one appointment!
- Take-home kits: We also offer custom bleach trays so that you can do bleaching at home on your own time. The advantage to the custom bleach tray kit is it can be reused indefinitely for constant touch-ups year after year.
Dental bonding can correct many smile flaws without the hassle of dealing with extensive cosmetic dentistry work. It can correct:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Dr. Einowski will ensure our durable bonding material will blend seamlessly with your smile, and it can all be done in one appointment.
A trendy cosmetic dentistry option, veneers dramatically change a smile’s appearance. They are thin, durable pieces of porcelain placed on the front of teeth and custom-made by our expert dental lab.
They can correct almost any smile issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Stained teeth
- Chipped Teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- And so much more
Every smile is different, which is why Dr. Einowski will sit one-on-one with you to discuss what you’re looking for with your new smile. He’ll consider many characteristics, including:
- Eye color
- Skin color
- Personality traits
- Face shape
- Lip color
With those unique features, he’ll craft a smile customized to you and only you. You’ll have a smile you’ll love.
With gum contouring, Dr. Einowski can mold your gums to complement your smile. Sometimes patients suffer from the dreaded “gummy smile” where the gums overpower the teeth. Using our revolutionary laser technology, Dr. Einowski will gently sculpt your gums to blend more seamlessly with your smile for a more balanced look.
‘‘The appointment began on time as scheduled. Reminders were sent. The dental hygienist was friendly, did a thorough exam and cleaning, and communicated well with me and the Doctor. Dr. Einowski followed up with a quick check to be sure there were no problems with my teeth or mouth. Everything was very efficient.’’
