Invisalign

Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.

Teeth Whitening

Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or the natural aging process. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at Dental Care at Cartwheel Bay can restore the brilliance of your smile. Our professional whitening techniques can brighten your teeth by several shades in a remarkably short period.

If it has been a while since your last check-up or you are simply looking for a new home for family dentistry, you are probably wondering, “Is there a dentist near me who can provide excellent service at an affordable price?” Fortunately, you have found the answer here at Dental Care at Cartwheel Bay. Our highest priorities are your satisfaction and comfort for everything from cosmetic teeth whitening to wisdom teeth removal.

Cosmetic Dentistry
At Dental Care at Cartwheel Bay, we want your smile to look as good as it feels. Our dental team can help you smile with pride by effectively treating problems that range from discoloration to misalignment. We believe that cosmetic dentistry is a natural part of taking good care of your teeth because a healthy smile is a beautiful smile.

Porcelain and Composite Resin Veneers / Lumineers
If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, then veneers may be right for you. Dental veneers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are permanently bonded to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come. 

Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are ultra-thin and require no grinding down of the original tooth, therefore the process is completely painless and reversible. 

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Dental Care at Cartwheel Bay is proud to be your Invisalign provider in St. Johns, Florida. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces for correcting dental misalignment or spacing problems. Your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports. Working adults can maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious while Invisalign Teen is a program specially designed to complement your adolescent patient’s lifestyle.

Teeth Whitening 
Even the most carefully treated white teeth can fade over time or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or aging. Now, you can achieve a dazzling smile with one of our whitening treatments. We offer the Zoom and Opalescence™ systems and we will help you decide which one is the best choice for your specific needs. Or, you may prefer a customized teeth-whitening kit that utilizes personalized trays and a powerful gel that you apply yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Comfort Dentistry
It is quite normal to feel anxious about visiting the dentist, but you can relax as the gentle dental professionals here at Dental Care at Cartwheel Bay assess your particular needs and take the time to discuss your best dental care options. You can count on our experience and expertise to provide care that is as pain-free as possible even if you have particularly sensitive teeth. Our goal is to relieve tooth pain, not cause it!

TMJ
TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have symptoms like pain or a clicking sound, you will be happy to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Early detection and treatment are important because some types of TMJ problems can lead to a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or even more serious conditions.

Oral Surgery
Our Oral Surgeon is available to provide extractions, socket preservation, and even bone grafting to prepare for dental implants. These procedures require only local anesthesia and are performed here at our dental clinic.

If you need a surgical tooth extraction, we can save you the time and money of making an extra trip to see an oral surgeon. This procedure requires only local anesthesia and can be performed here at our dental clinic.

Dentures
If you are looking for affordable dentures in the St. Johns, Florida area, you can find them here at Dental Care at Cartwheel Bay.  Our dentures are custom-crafted to look natural and allow you to enjoy proper oral function. Dr. Hutchins will help you determine if a partial or full denture will best suit your individual needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Dental Implants
Dental implants have become the gold standard for tooth replacement. Missing teeth can lead to a number of other oral health problems such as deterioration of the jawbone or even bite misalignment due to remaining teeth shifting toward the empty space.  However, at the end of the implantation process, you will enjoy a permanent, stable replacement that enables proper function and promotes healthy bone growth.

Emergency Dental Care in St. Johns, Florida
A severe tooth cavity, physical trauma, and other oral health problems can be incredibly uncomfortable, and we are here to treat dental issues that just can't wait for your regular check-up. Whether you're suffering from a painful cavity, cracked tooth, or a loose filling, please don't hesitate to give Dental Care at Cartwheel Bay a call! Research shows periodontal problems can potentially elevate the risk for other health issues, including diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Your health and comfort are our first priority. If you are in the St. Johns, Florida area and experiencing serious oral pain, call us directly at 904-506-0156 and one of our team members will help find the best time to take care of your specific needs.

State-of-the-Art Technology for Dental Care
We utilize the most advanced, up-to-date dental imaging technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution dental images that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, gum disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.
