How can we help you?
The entire team at Shipp Family Dentistry believes in making sure your time with us is as relaxing and comfortable as possible. We strive to provide every member of your family with an atmosphere where they are comfortable asking questions and learning about taking care of their oral health.
We firmly believe that good oral health is important for the well-being of the entire body. Our mission is to provide our patients with a quality atmosphere where they can learn about taking care of their oral health and enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Columbus, MS dentist Dr. Patrick Shipp enjoys educating his patients and talking about how they can best take care of their oral health. We never want you to feel rushed; instead, we want to make sure your questions are answered so you fully understand why specific treatments might be recommended.
Some of the questions you have may already have been asked by other patients. We’ve compiled a list of those questions here, for your convenience. If you have questions that are not answered here, we invite you to give us a call or bring them to your appointment. Don’t worry about your question sounding silly; the only silly question is the one that goes unasked!
Columbus, MS cosmetic dentist Dr. Patrick Shipp can talk to you about many treatments, depending on the current state of your teeth as well as the goals for your smile. The best first step is to make an appointment for a consultation.
We offer the following cosmetic treatments:
If your teeth and gums are healthy but your smile is not as white as you’d like, professional teeth whitening can make your teeth several shades whiter. This safe, affordable procedure is one of the most common cosmetic treatments we offer.
The chances are that Hollywood actor’s smile you admire so much is picture perfect because of porcelain veneers. But you don’t need to be a star to benefit from this treatment. These ultra-thin shell-like covers mask a multitude of problems with your teeth, including gaps and misalignment, as well as teeth that are stained or in need of reshaping.
If you have a damaged, broken, or oddly shaped tooth, a dental crown is a “cap” that is placed over the tooth. Dental crowns look natural and give you full function of the tooth.
Nothing beats a dental implant for replacing a missing tooth. Not only does a dental implant restore your ability to chew properly, but it will also protect the remaining teeth in your mouth by filling in the gap left behind by a missing tooth.
