Our office has digital x- rays and a digital panoramic machine - this x ray takes a picture of your jaws, joints, sinuses, and third molars. We also have computers in every operatory, so the patient and doctor can evaluate the findings in real time. We also have CAESY, this is an educational video.

What is...

  • Cosmetic Dentistry

    It is general dentistry and more. It has the added dimension of art. There are all the functional requirements, and, in addition, the dentist must pay close attention to the appearance of the dental work. Doing this requires special materials. Ceramic and composite technology has advanced to the point where beautiful AND durable dental work can be provided to each patient.
    But there is so much extra training involved in learning how to use these highly advanced materials properly, that only those dentists who are truly passionate about the appearance of their work take the time away from the office and spend the money required.

  • Root Canal Therapy

    There are many situations that do not require root canal therapy (Endodontics), or where root canal therapy may be one of several options. For this reason, we typically request that a consultation visit be scheduled in order that your relevant medical and dental history be reviewed and that your unique situation be considered in recommending appropriate treatment options.

    consultation is the beginning process of every procedure. A clinical and radiographic examination (x-rays) is performed to determine if endodontic therapy is necessary, if there are special treatment considerations and if the tooth is restorable by your general dentist after the treatment is completed. Radiographs are displayed on patient monitors to explain each specific recommended treatment plan. Radiograph drawings are created to achieve clear communication about the patients individual case. All images created during the initial consultation are stored in the patients digital chart for future reference.

    Dr.Shifrin will be happy to answer any of your questions, at this time, about the cause of your endodontic problem, the treatment sequence and the course of healing. Endodontic treatment is normally completed in one visit, but may require up to three seperate appointments to complete the treatment.

  • Crowns and Bridges

    Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.

  • Bone Grafting

    When a patient’s mouth lacks bone as well as teeth, bone grafting, or the addition of bone, is required before an implant can be placed. Bone grafts come from a specific part of the body (autogenous bone), tissue banks (allografts), or synthetically (alloplast). We place the graft into the area of your jaw that requires more bone tissue, and your body will accept the graft and replace it with the bodies own natural bone and eventually dissolve the graft material. Once the bone is mature, Dr.Shifrin can proceed with implant placement.

  • Dental Bonding

    Get rid of stains, chips and cracks with dental bonding and contouring. Cover imperfections with aesthetic dental techniques.
    If stains, chips and cracks are keeping the world from seeing you smile, we can help.
    Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored material is applied layer by artistic layer to the surface of the tooth. Dental bonding covers discoloration, repairs chips, breaks and cracks, and closes gaps between teeth.
    A composite resin filling may be used when only a small amount of tooth structure needs replacement.
    Dental bonding and contouring is one of the most conservative, versatile and affordable ways to aesthetically restore a multitude of cosmetic problems. You may be surprised how easy it is!

  • Dentures

    Dentures are removable for comfort and easy cleaning, and make a world of difference in your appearance.
    Apartial denture is recommended when patients are missing some teeth, but wish to keep and protect remaining teeth, Those who have few natural teeth left and wish to replace all their teeth use full dentures.
    Dr. Shifrin's team carefully crafts your tooth replacements for a very natural look. They’re created from acrylic materials to integrate well into your mouth, so your new replacement teeth are not easily distinguishable from your natural smile.
    Your teeth are important to your general well-being. When saving natural teeth is not always an option, dentures can help you fill the void and improve your eating and speaking abilities. Losing teeth does not have to mean compromising your smile.

Dental implants

Dental implants improve quality of life through enhanced…

  • Function – Implants are the closest prosthetic to natural teeth, offering a titanium root for a solid foundation. Additionally, speech is easier and clearer with a full set of teeth. Dental implants can replace single teeth or full dentures.
  • Aesthetics – Implants complete a smile with beautiful restorations that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. You’ll experience the confidence that comes from a complete smile.
  • Health –With reliable dental implants, you can eat all the foods required in a healthy, balanced diet. Studies show that patients without teeth do not live as long as those with natural or prosthetic teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium tooth root that takes the place of a natural tooth root. When a patient suffers from the loss of a tooth or several teeth, the placement of dental implants creates a new smile as strong as nature’s original work. Dr. Shifrin will surgically implant a titanium tooth root into your jawbone, and your body’s bone tissue will fuse with the titanium to create a solid, reliable prosthetic tooth root. On this, a handcrafted tooth is adhered by one of the associate doctors in the same office, so that you can enjoy the function, beauty, and health benefits of a solid and natural smile.

A brighter, whiter smile takes about an hour – but it can last for years

Teeth Whitening

Duluth Dental Center uses ZOOM! laser technology to quickly and professionally whiten teeth. This is the same teeth whitening treatment utilized in the popular reality show, Extreme Makeover. Now you can have brilliantly white teeth without stains or darkness – by up to eight shades, in about an hour. And the results can last for years!

At-home teeth whitening in about two weeks

Shifrin Dental can also create custom-fitted trays made in our own lab for your at-home use. We’ll provide you with full instruction and all the supplies required for teeth whitening at home. The trays are more exact than off-the-shelf products because they are made from models of your teeth. Trays can be worn at night or during the day for one to two weeks or until you get the desired level of whitening.

Porcelain veneers are used to:

  • Close gaps
  • Restore broken or chipped teeth
  • Permanently whiten teeth
  • Cover teeth that are stained, unsightly, crooked or misshapen

Not conventional caps, but natural-looking, functional teeth. What makes Veneers unique is the artistic design of the shaping of the veneers. . They function and look like real teeth. In as short as two visits you can have a confident and beautiful smile. The porcelain is layered to give your teeth a natural look – unlike the mass-produced veneers.

Porcelain dental veneers are best for the following situations:

  • A whiter smile where bleaching or bonding have not worked
  • Where the size of your teeth need to be enlarged to close spaces
  • A narrow arch widened to show more teeth
  • Enhancing smiles of young patients whose teeth and gums have not fully matured
