Smile Makeovers

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile will increase self-confidence and overall life satisfaction. Cosmetic dentistry includes things like tooth-colored restorations, dental implants, and crowns. We have many options, so please call us today!

Stress-Free Dentistry

Stress-Free dentistry is an excellent treatment for patients with extensive dental needs, or who are concerned about anxiety, difficulty getting numb, or sensitive teeth.

Tongue and Lip Tie Frenectomy

Tethered Oral Tissue, more commonly called tongue tie and lip tie, can prevent proper feeding, latch, and nursing. The most common symptoms are poor or weak suction, choking, coughing, or gulping during feeding, difficulty latching, colic, irritability, or reflux, painful nursing, low milk supply, clogged ducts, thrush, and/or mastitis. Tongue and lip ties will also prevent ideal development of the jaws and airway. They can contribute to speech issues as well.

Physiologic Orthodontics

Physiologic functional orthodontics is a highly specialized area of dentistry that combines traditional orthodontics with the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to effectively treat TMD issues. It results in a more desirable orthodontic outcome, functionally and cosmetically.

Not only can orthodontics help create beautiful smiles, early-intervention orthodontics can also help prevent sleep apnea and promote your lifelong health. Call today for a consultation!

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep Apnea Treatment Read More

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.

We offer effective, nonsurgical relief from sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders—including snoring. Ask us how you can get the restful, healthy sleep you’ve been missing.

TMJ/TMD Treatment

TMJ/TMD Treatment Read More

If you suffer from headaches or pain, clicking or popping while chewing, there may be problems with your temporomandibular joint (or TMJ). Call today to schedule a free phone TMJ consultation.

Invisalign® Orthodontics

Invisalign® Orthodontics Read More

These “invisible” aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile no longer need to come from a mouth full of unattractive wire and bracket braces. Enhancing self-esteem and physical confidence, invisible braces offer an esthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional wire/bracket braces.

Get the smile you've always wanted with Invisalign® Orthodontics.

Pure Power Mouthguard

Pure Power Mouthguard Read More

In virtually 90% of the population, the lower jaw is not in its optimal, most comfortable position, which causes pain and muscle tension in the jaw and surrounding area. A new mouth guard has been created based on the science of neuromuscular dentistry and is called the Pure Power Mouth Guard.

If you would like to learn more about the Pure Power Mouth Guard and whether it can work for you, please contact Dr. Deric Ikuta, serving cosmetic dentistry patients in Fresno, Visalia, Reedley, Clovis, and Hanford, California, today to schedule your initial consultation.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns & Bridges Read More

Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.

Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.

Mercury Free

Mercury Free Read More

The common silver filling contains mercury. Ikuta Smiles 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 of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result.

Smile Whitening

Smile Whitening Read More

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

Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding Read More

Composite bonding resin is a white, tooth colored material that can be shaded to match your teeth. This material can give you a low-cost improvement in your smile.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal Therapy Read More

Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances that form in the pockets around the teeth. The removal of this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training to effectively remove the bacteria.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays Read More

Our use of digital x-ray technology reduces your radiation exposure and eliminates the use of chemicals. It’s better for you and the environment.

It's also easy for you to see what the doctor sees. Your digital x-ray can be seen on a computer screen located next to your dental chair. This helps you understand your needs and make informed choices about your treatment.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers Read More

Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!

In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain laminates can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.
