Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry with Dr. James Tong focuses on your child’s overall oral health, hygiene, and development. This specialized program of study coupled with hands-on real-world experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the needs of infants, children, and adolescents. This also includes individuals who have special health care needs.

Before and after mercury fillings

Mercury-Free Fillings

The common silver filling contains mercury. Dr. Tong’s practice 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 for your smile.

Complete Family Dentistry

From toddlers to the elderly, Dr. James Tong and his skilled dental team are familiar with the unique needs of every patient, no matter their age. Our goal is to help them develop great oral habits that will last a lifetime. Join us today and discover how our practice can help treat your entire family. We love kids and recommend you start bringing kids to the dentist once their first tooth erupts or one year whichever comes first.

Worry-Free Sedation Dentistry

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

What is Sedation?

Perfectly safe for children, sedation dentistry with Dr. Tong allows his little patients to relax while undergoing restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. Dental sedation enables patients to overcome anxiety from discomfort all the way up to phobia about even visiting the dentist. Plus, sedation allows you to group various procedures into a single office visit, making it a better use of your time. And in the end, your child will have little or no recollection about your visit.

Bonding & Sealants

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. Normal pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth can trap food that can’t easily be removed with brushing. These sealants are painted onto the tooth surface to seal these pits and grooves and protect against tooth decay.

Smile Whitening

Tooth Whitening is an easy solution for people who want to improve the color of their teeth with the minimal procedure. Remove stains from orthodontic brackets and other common causes with a painless tooth whitening from Dr. James Tong. We offer several tooth whitening options, all of which are more effective than any over-the-counter solution. The whitening agents we use can lighten your teeth up to ten shades after a single office visit.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy is an excellent way to save a tooth that would otherwise die and need to be removed. All teeth that have had root canal therapy must be protected with a crown. This is because teeth that have had the pulp removed are more susceptible to fracture.

Teenagers smiling

Invisalign® Orthodontics

These “invisible” aligners are an ideal orthodontic solution for adults and teens. Straighten teeth and revitalize your smile without unattractive wire-and-bracket braces. Enhance your self-esteem and physical confidence and enjoy the benefits of invisible braces which offer an esthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional braces. And since they’re removable, you can eat what you want and clean your teeth like you always do.

Digital Impression

The iTero® digital impressions allow us to get an accurate 3D impression of your teeth including your jaw without the traditional messy goop used in the past. The digital impression gives us much more information and is more comfortable for you, our patients. So you can say goodbye to goop!
