Pendleton Family Dental wants you to be proud of your smile.
Your smile; It’s one of the first things people notice when they first meet you, and it has the power to make or break those first impressions. We offer several cosmetic dentistry services including:
A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth and for cosmetic improvements by changing the color of the tooth or by reshaping disfigured teeth. Aesthetically pleasing, composite fillings provide a great alternative to traditional amalgam for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. Your dentist can blend shades to create a color nearly identical to that of the actual tooth. These composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, which helps prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature fluctuation. They are durable enough to be used on front or back teeth as they can resist fracture in small to mid-size fillings that need to withstand the stress and pressure caused by regular chewing. For more details, check out this video from the American Dental Association.
Composite Fillings – Tooth-Colored Fillings – American Dental Association
Tooth-colored fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth are called composites. They are generally used on either front or back teeth. Read more…
If your tooth has too much decay for a filling, or if your tooth is cracked or broken, we may recommend a dental crown. Porcelain crowns blend in with surrounding teeth and provide a natural-looking, strong, and long-lasting repair for broken teeth, cracked teeth or discolored teeth. Here is what porcelain crowns can do:
- Provide support for damaged teeth
- Protect what remains of the natural teeth
- Minimize the physical discomfort of tooth sensitivity
- Fit snugly over natural teeth to conceal cracks and chips
- Conceal discolored teeth
- Re-align a patient’s pre-existing bite
- Even out the overall appearance of a smile
- Serve as anchors for a dental bridge
Porcelain crowns have proven to be durable and long lasting, all while providing a stain-free shine. They can provide a surface texture to break up the light and give a more natural appearance; in fact it’s almost impossible to tell the difference between the porcelain crown and your natural teeth. You can trust that we have the knowledge and staff to provide you with the latest advancements in fitting your high-quality porcelain crowns. Our dental ceramists will ensure that your porcelain crowns and restorations are all perfectly matched to your individual teeth and create the smile you want. For more information about porcelain crowns, please contact us today at 866-980-8989.
Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
A smile is important. It’s one of the first things noticed when meeting someone. A whiter, brighter smile can make a memorable impression.

It is performed only by a dental professional. The clinician applies propriety Zoom!® Whitening Gel. This gel is then used in combination with the Zoom!® Curing Light. The light and gel then work together to gently penetrate the teeth, breaking up stains and discoloration. *Patient must have an examination and x-rays AND must be cleared of dental decay and periodontal disease to qualify for ZOOM!® In just a couple of hours, you can go home with a new, whiter, brighter smile.

I would like to let you know how much I appreciate the beautiful work Dr. Nguyen did on my teeth today. I had broken my teeth yesterday. This morning I went to your center to make an appointment. You office was kind enough to schedule me for the same day at 2 pm. I was relieved because I was leaving on vacation in one week. I am grateful for the extra care, the professional attitude of your staff and sensitivity to my predicament. I hope you will relay my heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Nguyen for giving me my smile back.
