General Dentistry

We offer a full range of general dentistry procedures. New patients are always welcome!

New Patient Dental Cleanings & Exams

Dental exams and cleanings, as part of our general dentistry services, are our chance to make sure that your teeth are in good working order. During your first visit, you will tour the office and then meet with the hygienist to clean your teeth. This visit may include a fluoride treatment or varnish. You will have X-rays taken of your teeth. We also have options available to see inside your teeth without needing X-rays (CariVu to look inside your teeth, SOPROCARE fluorescence to detect decay in your mouth, and DIAGNOdent cavity detection system). Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey will go over the condition of your teeth and discuss any issues you may be developing. Catching your problems early will make them much easier to treat. This is especially true in terms of the oral cancer screening you will receive during your exam and cleanings.

Emergency Dental Visits

We’re here to help when you’re in pain and experiencing a dental emergency.

Regular visits to the dentist are hard enough for a lot of people and dental emergencies are even harder. We are here to get you the care you need fast, ensuring your comfort, recovery, and restoration of your teeth. All dental emergencies are different but our wide range of advanced treatment techniques and technology will have you smiling again soon!

Night & Sports Guards

Grinding or clenching your teeth is called bruxism, and it can contribute to the development of a TMJ disorder. A mouthguard from our top-notch Hellertown, PA dentist can help save your teeth and your jaw from the effects of chronic bruxism.

One of the symptoms of a TMJ disorder, or TMD, is migraines or headaches. Come see us at Hellertown Dental Group to find out what can be done to solve your migraine problems. Often, we recommend an oral device to reposition your jaw, taking pressure off it and therefore eliminating the jaw pain that can lead to headaches.

Gum Disease Treatment (Periodontics)

Sore gums may be a sign of the beginning stages of gum disease. Gum disease can destroy your smile and cause other health problems if left untreated. Get yours taken care of immediately.

Gum recession can leave your smile looking like you are all teeth. A good balance of gum and teeth is ideal when you flash your smile. Gum disease is a major cause of a lot of gum recession issues. If that’s what caused your receding gums, then scaling and root planing may be good ways to stimulate new gum growth in the affected areas. Top-notch Hellertown,PA dentist Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey can also use tissue and gum grafting to correct your gum recession issue and help even out your smile.

Family Dentistry

Children’s teeth are susceptible to cavities and are ever-changing. Our gentle pediatric dental appointments will keep your child’s mouth healthy and protect the future of their teeth.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can be a very hard condition to deal with. Not only can the associated loud snoring keep you and your partner awake, but sleep apnea can lead to a host of health problems. A custom TAP oral appliance from Hellertown Dental Group can give you the relief and sleep you need.

Dental Fillings

Hellertown Dental Group offers porcelain and composite resin dental fillings. With an amalgam-free filling, you will have a smile that is free from the unsightly gray that metal fillings come with. Your Hellertown, PA dentist, Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey will go over the benefits of each type of material and help you decide which one is right for your situation.

Cosmetic Dentistry

We’ll help you achieve the smile of your dreams with our full suite of cosmetic dental services.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are great for fixing minor issues with your teeth, such as chips and cracks. A veneer is bonded to the compromised tooth and is able to support and protect it from further damage. It can also help with cosmetic issues, such as stains.

Dental veneers are thin layers of material that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are usually made out of porcelain or a composite resin. This allows them to take the appearance of your natural teeth. Hellertown Dental Group offers two kinds of veneers, traditional porcelain veneers and Lumineers dental veneers. Each is a quality veneer with their own benefits. We will help you choose the one that will best fit your needs when you come in for your consultation.

Teeth Whitening

Do you wish your teeth were just a couple shades brighter? It’s as simple as coming to see us for a quick, easy, and painless whitening appointment. Whitening is for anyone who wants to drastically brighten their smile fast and enjoy the results for a long time to come.

Hellertown Dental Group offers the Zoom whitening system. A trusted name in dental whitening, Zoom is able to handle stains that other whitening systems are not able to remove. We offer both in-office whitening and trays for take-home use.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

Straight teeth are an important part of a pleasing smile. While we don’t directly offer these services, we can help direct you to the right provider. Correcting the position of your teeth can improve the look and feel of your smile. There are several options to choose from, including traditional braces and clear aligners. The traditional braces system is great for all ages and will effectively correct any tooth alignment issue you may have. Invisalign uses a clear aligner system and is for the busy adult who wants to straighten their smile quickly, effectively, and covertly. The clear plastic aligners are practically invisible to those around you.

Restorative Dentistry

We’ll help you restore your smile and oral health with our full range of comprehensive dentistry.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

A dental crown is a device that is used to save a damaged tooth from suffering further damage. It fits over the tooth like a cap and is bonded into place. This preserves the tooth and gives you back the functionality of your mouth. A bridge is a dental device that is used to span the gap between teeth when you lose a tooth from your smile. A false tooth is attached to two crowns and bonded into place on your natural teeth.

Inlays and onlays are both considered to be partial crowns. They address problems that need more than a filling but less than a true crown. Made of porcelain, an inlay is applied to the inner part of your molar’s biting surface, while an onlay is applied to the outer part of your biting surface and even onto the sides.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots topped with replacement teeth. Dentures are either a full or partial arch of replacement teeth. Dental implants can be used to hold a single replacement tooth, a bridge, or a denture in place.

Implants are biocompatible posts that replace the roots of your missing teeth. They are physically and biologically designed to attach to your jaw bone and become the foundation for a natural looking restoration.

Your new tooth or teeth will have excellent stability and strength, and will look and feel like your natural teeth.

Dental Surgeries

We’ll help you restore your smile and oral health with our full range of comprehensive dentistry.

Root Canal Treatment

Natural wear and tear on teeth over time can lead to decay, and other damage such as cracking and breaking. A root canal can salvage the remaining healthy structure instead of removing and replacing it completely.

For some reason, a myth has been perpetuated that a root canal is one of the most painful dental procedures you can have. This is simply not true. In reality, a root canal is no more painful than having a tooth filled. As the top-rated Hellertown, PA dentist, Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey at Hellertown Dental Group, we know that everyone has differing levels of pain tolerance – what does not hurt one person may be very painful for another. That is why we tailor our anesthetic doses to the person and pay attention to how you are feeling throughout the process.

Tooth Removal & Extractions

Remove problem teeth for a healthier mouth and a smile you will love.

There are a number of reasons for a tooth needing extraction. These reasons include: broken teeth, decay, gum disease, overcrowding, and problematic wisdom teeth. A quick and painless extraction can fix these issues and restore the health and appearance of your teeth.
