Teeth Whitening

Treatment Steps:

  • Pre-whitening Exam: Before deciding to have teeth whitening treatments, you must have a dental exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening treatment.
  • Recent Dental Cleaning: A recent dental cleaning is required in order to make sure the whitening treatment is effective as possible.
  • Color/Shade Selection: Your dentist will match the current shade of your teeth using the guide, and you can discuss which shade is most desirable and reasonable to achieve, and compare the results to the original shade as treatment progresses.

Crowns

Dental crowns are also known as “caps,” as they fit on top of existing teeth or over dental implants. Dental crowns are most often made of porcelain, a material that is both strong and non-porous (thus more resistant to staining like tooth enamel), and reflects light in much the same way as a natural tooth.

Treatment Steps:

  • First, your dentist will numb the area to be treated with local anesthetic.
  • Next, they will reshape the outside tooth by shaving and removing enough of the tooth material to allow the crown to sit on top and fit with the rest of your teeth.
  • Once this process is complete, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory where a permanent crown will be created to match your smile.
  • Your dentist will create and place a temporary crown to seal and protect the tooth temporarily until your permanent crown is ready for placement.

  •   Dr. Hofkes and Dr. Yin are very personable Dentists. They both always greet me and my son with warm smiles. I have had work done by Dr. Hofkes and he has made getting fillings done, not such a horrifying experience. Dr. Yin has done my son's dental work for the last 11 months. She is very kind and gentle with him. She has the perfect approach for working on young children. The dental assistants at this office are very professional and neat individuals. They wear the proper protective equipment when attending myself or my son. All the equipment is properly sterilized and sealed. The office is well organized and kept clean.

  •   I've always felt like there are 3 areas of expertise where I want to find someone who I can trust.  A good mechanic, a good physician, and last but not least a good dentist.

    Luckily for me, at Center Plaza Dentistry, I've found 2 dentist!  Dr. Hofkes and Dr. Yin.  I could tell that they place the patients' health and comfort high on their priority list which extremely important to me.  Especially when it comes to my teeth.  They take the time to ensure I understand everything that will be performed and are very patient with me.  I've had a lot of work done on my teeth in my younger years which can present interesting challenges to some dentist.  I have a permanent metal bar that acts as a retainer on the inside of my bottom row of teeth.  As you can imagine, food gets stuck there very easily causing lots of buildup.  I try my best to keep it clean but there's so much you can do with home equipment.  Past dentist have had a difficult time trying to clean around my retainer bar but not here.  My mouth and teeth feel so clean when I'm finished here.

    I've had 9 teeth removed in total in my early teen years so you can say going to the dentist can be a little traumatic for me.  Dr. Hofkes and Dr. Yin always do what they can to make sure I am comfortable and relaxed. As far as facilities and support staff goes, I have to reiterate what some of the other reviewers have stated.  This place is state-of-the-art and a very friendly staff.  

    Take care of yourself.  Take care of your teeth.  Trust Dr. Hofkes and Dr. Yin!

  •   First of all I want to start off saying most of my life I have not been a big fan of the dentist. However,  Center Plaza Dentistry has helped change that. Their offices are absolutely gorgeous and the staff is wonderful. Dr. Yin has been great, she is patient and explains everything thoroughly so you know what is going on at all times. She has made me feel comfortable and helped get rid of any of that "dental anxiety" a lot of people suffer from. I highly recommend Dr. Yin to anyone looking for an excellent dentist that will work to help you get your best smile.

  •   Folks, your search for a good dental office ends here...

    I have been treated by both Dr. Hofkes and Dr. Yin. Never in my life have I looked forward to a dental appointment until my family and I found Center Plaza Dentistry. Yes, I actually did say that I looked forward to my dentist appointments.

    I've had issues with my teeth that cascaded into more problems. Ailey, who works the front office is very helpful in setting up your appointments and going over your plan of care and answering any questions you may have. I was blessed to have been seen by Dr. Hofkes and Dr. Yin. Their patient care is superb! They explain everything to you very clearly and ensures that you are comfortable during every procedure. They also have what many dentists from my experience lack, "human touch"

    The staff's excellence in their professional care and knowledge reflects upon their love and dedication for treating patients and families. This is what Center Plaza Dentistry represents.

  •   I was overdue for a cleaning and in need of a local dentist. I did a search on Yelp and checked out several business pages. I was very impressed with the things people said about Center Plaza Dentistry and decided to give them a call. I was able to get a last minute appointment and was elated yet nervous to finally be getting back in the dentist's chair. On the morning of my appointment, I walked in with a couple of minutes to spare and was immediately greeted by name. My appointment started on time and after walking through the door, the ball started moving immediately. I went from completing paperwork to having x-rays completed to meeting Dr. Hofkes and having my teeth examined and cleaned. I am accustomed to not having much time with the dentist and having a hygienist conduct the cleaning so it was a nice change. Dr. Hofkes has a very calm and relaxing demeanor. I like how patient he is and how he ensures that you are comfortable as well as informed about the service(s) and any treatments you may need to improve your oral care.

    Due to my negligence, I had to schedule an additional appointment following my cleaning to remedy cavities. I was able to schedule an appointment for a few days later. When I returned for my second appointment, I was not nervous in the slightest despite being afraid of needles. I was at ease knowing I would receive great care. I was able to relax until the point where I drifted off and did not feel any pain while the cavities were being filled. I did not even feel the injections when he was numbing the area around my teeth. After the anesthesia wore off a couple of hours later, I was still pain and discomfort free.

    I must apologize as I am bad with names but the staff members at Center Plaza are so delightful. Seriously, kudos to everyone from the office manager to the dental assistant to Dr. Hofkes!

    The dentist office offers in house dental plans as well as care credit financing for those who may be without dental insurance like myself. They even have discounts available on products and services. I cannot recall the details so please contact the office for the proper information regarding.

    They also have 3 options for patients interested in teeth whitening. At the conclusion of my last appointment, I inquired about whitening. They provide in house whitening, at home tray whitening, and at home strip whitening.

    I cannot rave enough about the staff members and the dentist office. I am very glad to have made the decision to become a patient at Center Plaza. I trust that my oral health is in good hands.

    One Last Thing.......did I mention how clean and aesthetically pleasing the office is? The office decor has a calming element and makes use of cool tones. The seating provided in the waiting area is plush. The chairs in the examination room are comfy. All of the equipment is state of the art. There is a tv provided in case you would like to watch something while your teeth are being tended to. Refreshments such as bottled water and coffee are always available. You seriously are getting top of the line care in style.

    Enjoy your next cleaning!

  •   I was recommend by a friend after she raved about how wonderful this place was. She was 100 percent right! It's a husband and wife that work together. I felt so welcomed and by the 2nd time I went I was greeted by the receptionist as if we had known each other for years. Super clean and new state of the art tools and equipment. Highly recommended I now have a few friends and family members coming to them now 🙂

  •   In town for a wedding over the weekend and stopped by for a dental cleaning. The office is clean and beautiful. The staff was friendly and made me feel comfortable the entire time. I was even offered water while filling out paperwork. Dr. Hofkes was great. Not only did he provide the cleaning and removal of stains that I needed, but informed me that he saw a tooth that will need a filling in the future. He also took the time to explain to me how to take better care of my teeth and gums in a way that was neither condescending nor preachy. The experience here was excellent, and I really wish Dr. Hofkes was my dentist back home. Bonus points for being open on Saturdays!

  •   To my Favorite Dentist Dr Hofkes and staff! Thank you for bringing back my smile! I've had some old Porcelain fused to metal crowns on my front teeth that made my gums looked dark and ugly. It made me feel really subconscious about my smile. I've been putting off getting them redone because I haven't found the right office AND going to the dentist is not on my agenda. But I knew I had to do something about this funky smile so I decided to go on yelp of course and found Center Plaza Dentistry. I called and this nice lady named Ailey picked up the phone and made my appt. She was able to have me come in for my consultation that same day. My experience was truly second to none. The staff is great and very professional. The office was very nice and spotless. Dr Hofkes was very nice and gentle and not to mention very patient with me and my ADHD lol They have options for financing treatments which helped me out a lot. This office truly deserves more than a five stars. Thank you again for bringing back my smile and confidence!!!! I am able to smile again with my teeth and not with my lips. Lol

Online Appointment

  • Exam & Cleanings

    Great oral health starts here, with a dental exam. Based on this initial exam, your dentist will create your customized dental treatment plan, which will be a guide for you and your dental team going forward in order to give you a healthy mouth.

  • Whitening

    Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and getting regular cleanings at the dentist’s office. However, if you decide you would like to go beyond regular care to make your smile look brighter, we offer several options to help make sure your smile is as bright as possible.

  • Fillings

    Dental fillings are a treatment option to help restore the function and appearance of a tooth that is damaged or decayed. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat a cavity. Having a tooth “filled” is a very common procedure and can be completed in one appointment at the office.

  • Crowns & Bridges

    A dental crown is a type of dental restoration and serves as a component in many different types of restorative treatments. Dental crowns are also known as “caps,” as they fit on top of existing teeth or over dental implants. Dental crowns are most often made of porcelain, a material that is both strong and non-porous (thus more resistant to staining like tooth enamel), and reflects light in much the same way as a natural tooth.

  • Root Canals

    Root canal treatment is a treatment option available to “save” a tooth that has sustained damage, inflammation, or infection in the pulp, deep inside the tooth. Put simply, the damaged internal sections are removed from your tooth and replaced with material to seal the tooth. In most cases a crown is placed over the tooth to protect it from further decay and damage.

  • Extractions

    A Tooth extraction, put simply, is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Dental extractions are most often performed because a tooth has sustained damage or decay, or cannot be saved by Root Canal treatment, or to prepare for the placement of a Dental Implant. Advanced gum disease may be another contributing factor in a tooth extraction.

  • Veneers

    A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail) that is bonded on top of your own tooth.

  • Dental Implants

    Dental implants are the closest possible alternative to actual tooth replacement. With proper care, maintenance, and regular checkup visits with your dentist, dental implants are designed to last for life.

  • Partials & Dentures

    Affordable Dentures are offered in a variety of denture styles that include full and partial dentures. Our experienced staff will help you find the best match for your needs.

  • Mandibular Advancement Devices

    Mandibular Advancement Devices for obstructive sleep apnea are often used as a substitute for CPAP or sleep apnea oral surgery. Sleep apnea mouth guards can also help prevent snoring by reducing airway turbulence. Snoring is usually an underlying symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.

    Mandibular Advancement Devices work by moving the jaw forward, which increases the size of the upper airway, thus reducing the air resistance that leads to sleep apnea and snoring.

    It is important that you visit a medical doctor to receive a proper diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea before seeking a mandibular advancement device.

    Designed for both teens and adults, Invisalign clear aligners transform smiles and lives. Teens reveal their best smile through a unique treatment developed just for them, while adults get the smile they’ve always imagined without putting their lives on hold.
