Implant Restoration

Dental implants are the best solution for anyone missing one or more teeth. It’s a fixed restoration that combines beauty and function to give you your full smile back. After your implant placement, our doctors create a dental restoration to blend seamlessly with your existing smile.

Before treatment, we examine your smile to recommend the best tooth restoration and determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants. Patients must have enough jawbone to support the implant and the new tooth, but we have innovative ways to fix this problem.

Sedation Dentistry

Many patients experience fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist, but we have a solution. Our sedation dentistry uses safe and controlled medication to soothe any anxious feelings and keep you comfortable throughout your appointment. Smile Ballard uses nitrous oxide AKA laughing gas.

The safe and effective way to treat fear allows you to get the restorative dental treatment you need without any feelings of stress or worry. If you experience dental anxiety, fear, or are uneasy about going to the dentist, then please ask us about sedation for your next visit.


Sometimes a tooth becomes damaged beyond repair due to decay or injury, and it must be removed. A simple tooth extraction involves removing the tooth and root from the jaw using a safe and gentle procedure. Extractions in Ballard, WA, may be easier than you think!

Our team walks you through the process, lets you know what to expect, and makes sure you’re comfortable from start to finish. We often perform tooth removal using a local anesthetic to manage discomfort during the procedure. After, you’ll receive post-treatment instructions for happy healing at home.

TMJ Disorder
Millions of Americans suffer from the effects of temporomandibular joint disorder. Symptoms of TMD may include headaches, sore neck and shoulder muscles, popping or clicking noises in the jaw joint, difficulty opening or closing your mouth, and pain or tenderness of the jaw.

Our Ballard restorative dentists work with you to find the cause of the problem and treat it. We can help restore your jaw’s health and function to get rid of the pain that’s taking over your life. Contact us to discuss your symptoms and see what we can do for you.


If your tooth is damaged, whether from decay or injury, we can often save the healthy tooth structure by using a dental crown. A dental crown is a custom-designed cap that permanently covers the healthy part of your tooth structure to restore its aesthetic and function.

Our restorative dentists in Seattle ensure your new crown matches your existing smile with a high-quality restoration. The benefits of saving your tooth with a crown include preserving the bone structure, maintaining your bite and alignment, and preventing further damage. Find out if a crown is right for you!


Are you missing one or more teeth? A dental bridge may be the perfect solution to give you a full smile again by filling missing gaps. In addition, this treatment can restore your confidence and help alleviate stress on your bite, prevent other teeth from shifting, and improve your ability to eat and speak.

A dental bridge consists of two or more dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. The crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth gap to support your new artificial tooth or teeth (essentially, bridging the gap). Contact us to learn more about our dental bridges in Ballard.
