Cosmetic Dentistry

At Gentling Dental Care, we can use the treatments listed below to give you a set of teeth you’re always eager to show off, ensuring no matter where you are, you’re ready for the camera. 


Crowns & Bridges

Do you have a cavity or broken tooth that is constantly causing you grief? Do you think twice before smiling because you don’t want people to notice your missing teeth? 



A smile with missing teeth can make you look much older than your actual age. Plus, missing teeth can make it difficult for you to eat and speak.

Family Dentistry

Driving to different dental practices can be exhausting, and it can be a hassle setting up appointments for everyone in your family. 


Full Mouth Reconstruction

When a patient comes to us at Gentling Dental Care with more than just a few dental problems, we understand it can be difficult and even embarrassing. 


Dental Implants

Missing teeth are a very common problem, but fortunately, dentistry has come up with a solution that basically helps patients get their natural teeth back: dental implants. 



If straighter teeth are what you envision for your smile, then look no further than Invisalign in Rochester. At Gentling Dental Care, we can help you achieve your individual goals without the metal brackets and wires. 


Jaw Pain TMJ/TMD Therapy

Does your jaw pop and click every time you move it? Is it sore, or does it even become stuck sometimes while opening and closing? If so, then you may be suffering from TMJ disorder or TMD. 


Professional Cleaning & Periodontal Therapy

Did you know that periodontal disease, not cavities, is actually the most common dental problem in the world? Better known as gum disease, this infection can cause redness, swelling, oral bleeding, gum recession, halitosis, loose teeth…the list of unpleasant symptoms goes on, and they only get worse without treatment. 


Root Canals & Tooth Removal

A root canal is a way to preserve your natural tooth if it becomes infected or irreversibly sensitive. It is an alternative to extracting (removing) the tooth so that you can continue to function with your natural teeth. 


Same Day Appointments

Dental emergencies happen, and we’re here for you when they do! 


Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a common and popular chemical process used to lighten your teeth. Some people get their teeth whitened to make stains disappear, while others just want a brighter smile. Please see our Whitening for Life program for a long-lasting bright smile. 


Tooth Colored (Shade Matched) Fillings

Tooth decay, known as dental cavities, is an oral disease affecting many people. Natural bacteria live in your mouth and form a sticky substance called plaque.

“I had chipped the corner of my front tooth when I was a kid and had a composite filling that time really took a toll on. So, I got an appointment scheduled to get a new filling! Dr. Melissa and Kristie did a wonderful, efficient, and painless job on my tooth. They matched the color and shape perfectly. You can't even tell I have a filling! Thanks for your great work!”

- Meredith M.
