When most people enter a dental office, it is usually not the place that they love to visit... but I take great joy in helping my patients feel comfortable and informed about their dental visit and dental needs. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of North Carolina.

I have two married sons with lovely wives and two beautiful granddaughters that bring me great joy also. My hobbies include playing bridge and doing a little gardening. My faith is of utmost importance to me, so my Bible studies and times with friends are very, very important. Life is good with a job that I enjoy and a faith that totally sustains.

The visit went extremely well and I was pleased with the service and courtesy paid upon arrival by the administrative staff. The appointment started ahead of time with a warm greeting and concluded with a great visit from both the hygienist and Dr. Helms. The staff greeted me with warmth, professionalism, concern for my concerns, and asked if I had any questions or concerns. This practice knows how to treat those who entrust them with their care and concerns.

As usual, outstanding!.. Most pleasant atmosphere. Friendly, smiling faces from the front desk to the to the man himself. Jeannie is so competent. I feel I have had a very good cleaning when I leave. She is most helpful in explaining the “whats and whys” during the cleaning process…………….finally, what can you say about the main man himself? Great dentist and very good golfer. AND, a rabid VOLUNTEER!.

Our Services

Our dental office provides all of the following services. Be sure to click on the services below to see a video explaining the treatment.

Crowns & Bridges

If your tooth has become weak due to fractures, excessive decay, or large failing restorations, Post and Core Buildups are a great remedy. This procedure provides strength to the remaining tooth structure so that it can support a Crown or Bridge. Bridges are one, among many, options for tooth replacement.

Dental Implants

A great way to replace a missing tooth is by means of an implant. Following the placement of your implant by a specialist, Dr. Helms, will provide you with aesthetically pleasing Implant Crowns. Dr. Helms works hard to ensure your new Implant Crown looks natural and blends in with the rest of your teeth.

Preventative

A healthy mouth means a healthy you! Preventative care includes Prophylaxis, Radiographs, Sealants, Flouride Treatments, Scaling & Root PlaningNight Guards, and Sports Guards.

Do you have bad breath? Tooth sensitivy? Pain when chewing? Gum recession? Irritated gums? Bleeding when you brush your teeth? These may be an indication of gum disease! If caught early, this can be treated. Learn more by watching this video.

Restorative

Sometimes teeth needs restorations. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Helms works hard to ensure all of your restorations are both strong and aesthetically pleasing. Many of our restoratives involve tooth colored composite fillings. These composite fillings may be used when removing tooth decay, replacing old amalgam fillings, repairing chipped teeth, or when placing cosmetic bonding. If needed, Dr. Helms also offers amalgam fillings , temporary fillings, inlays and onlays.

Whitening

It’s true that you can purchase whitening products over the counter, however, there are huge advantages to allowing dental professionals to help you whiten your teeth. Please watch this video to learn about these advantages. We offer several different whitening options: Opal Go!Opalescence Whitening Gel with Custom TraysIn-house Whitening With Boost!. Please ask our team about whitening at your next visit. We can create a custom whitening program just for you!

Veneers

Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed.  Many people choose to have veneers placed for cosmetic reasons. They are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are very esthetic.

Orthodontics

Want straight teeth? Dr. Helms provides cosmetic orthodontic treatment. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Helms will recommend the orthodontic options best for you. Options include metal/tradition braces or Clear Correct. There may be some more complicated cases that Dr. Helms will refer out to a specialist.

Already had orthodontic treatment but lost your retainer or need to have it replaced? Let Dr. Helms team know! We can fabricate a retainer for you even if we did not provide the initial orthodontic treatment.

Endodontics

Dr. Helms provides root canal therapy on anterior and some posterior teeth. Depending on the case, he may refer the patient out to an Endodontic Specialist that he recommends.

Oral Surgery

Dr. Helms provides limited oral surgery which is described as simple extractions. Any extractions that he feels will not be considered simple will be referred out to an Oral Surgeon he recommends.

Partials & Dentures

There are consequences to having missing teeth. Would you like to learn more about these consequences? Check out this video. We offer many options for tooth replacement. Some options for tooth replacement include Full Dentures, Partial Dentures, or a Flipper. Each of these are custom made to fit your mouth and adjusted to ensure optimum comfort.
