CEREC Crowns & Tooth Restorations

A dental crown is one of the most common procedures people hear about in a dental office. A crown is a rather simple procedure to "cover" or "cap" a broken or decayed tooth. When a crown is cemented into place, it covers the entire tooth surface that is above the gum line. When effectively placed, this restoration could possibly last you a lifetime. CEREC technology allows us to restore a tooth with a crown in a single visit, using strong ceramic tooth-colored material, saving you valuable time with an optimal product.

Oral Surgery - Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Oral surgery is typically equated with the removal or extraction of teeth. This includes wisdom teeth as well as other surgical procedures, to include the use of dental lasers for gum treatment and lengthening the appearance of your teeth with contouring. Dr. Earp has 25 years of experience in tooth extractions and residency at Central Prison when at UNC Dental School.


Dental Implants

When bridges may not be your option or choice, the optimal treatment is dental implants. We use the industries best, Nobel Biocare. Whether it's a single or multiple implants you prefer; a natural looking crown(s) that are totally supported by a dental implant in your mouth, we can help.

He has successfully completed the curricula necessary to address the varied surgical skills needed to place implants. He enjoys giving patients an option to naturally replace missing teeth, without having to anchor a bridge on opposing teeth. Patients say, "this feels like my real tooth again."

Root Canal

Our practice uses Dentsply Vortex Blue and rotary endodontic files for efficiency and dependability when treating root canals. Coupled with Zeiss German made microscope there are not many canals Dr. Earp can't find. During root canal treatment, the inflamed (abscessed) pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled. It is necessary to restore the top of the tooth with a crown. A root canaled tooth is considered dead after the pulp is removed, therefore, it is brittle, and over time will crack and may not be able to save. After complete root canal and crown restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.

The purpose of oral conscious sedation is to provide comfort to our patients during necessary dental treatment. Our practice is DOCS Education certified and equipped with to administer and monitor your vitals during your oral sedation procedure. We use online medication compatibility support system and always have a clinician in the room with our patients.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that cover the front side of teeth to create a nice cosmetic look for the teeth. Veneers are most commonly used to make cosmetic changes to teeth that are discolored, misaligned, chipped or thin. The technology of porcelain veneers has made it simple for us to give you the gorgeous smile you have always wanted.


Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a customized false tooth, or set of teeth, that is cemented permanently between two healthy teeth. This fills the space left by the missing tooth or teeth. This procedure allows patients to limit the shifting of the neighboring teeth, correct bite problems, and reduce the risk of gum disease.



Partials and dentures are another alternatives for those people who are missing teeth, who may not be candidates for implants. Partials are used to replace multiple missing teeth. There are two types of partials, acrylic and cast. Both are great appliances; cast partials are metal and known to be longer lasting. Dentures are to replace an entire arch of teeth. Dentures are custom made to fit you.


Teeth Whitening

Soda, coffee, wine and cigarettes, can leave teeth with stains that dull your smile. One of the most common questions patients continually ask is, "How can I get my teeth whiter?" The answer is simple, with teeth whitening! Our office administers the less invasive Boost Whitening System and Opalescence System for a lasting natural smile. This is a quick and easy fix to looking younger and getting your youthful smile back! A simple impression can be done in one visit and bleaching gel/trays delivered to you in less than a week, or in office Boost system appointment and you can walk out the door with whiter teeth!


Oral ID-Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is far too often discovered in late stage development. Oral cancer treatment often results in disfiguring effects on patients and can seriously compromise their quality of life. Early detection and diagnosis can make a tremendous difference in life expectancy; oral cancer is 90% curable when found in its early stages. Our hygiene staff offers this screening at your scheduled hygiene/cleaning appointment to help with any concerns you may have, and give peace of mind.


Intraoral Camera

With an intraoral digital camera, patient education is simplified by being able to help the patient see what the doctor sees. With bright LED or halogen light sources, intraoral digital cameras also allow you to visualize more. This helps our practice to diagnose fractures the naked eye would never have seen, and to be proactive in your dental hygiene care.
