Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most effective ways to stabilize loose dentures, and they can also be used to replace missing teeth. Dr. Marc Johnson has completed training in both the surgical placement and the cosmetic restoration of dental implants, so you can receive all of your implant care at Fox Chapel Family Dental. ​​Dental implants are an excellent option for adult patients who are missing one or multiple teeth. Implants look and function just like natural teeth, with none of the slipping, clicking or uncomfortable adhesives of removable dentures. Healthy, well-maintained dental implants can last for many, many years.

Cosmetic Dentistry

While our primary concern is helping our patients maintain their optimal oral health, we believe that every smile should be as beautiful as it is healthy. Our Pittsburgh dentists have a passion for creating beautiful smiles, so they approach every general dental treatment with an artistic sensibility. They also have the skill and training to provide procedures that are specifically cosmetic in nature, from porcelain veneers to professional teeth whitening. Whether your smile needs a little pick-me-up or a total overhaul, Fox Chapel Family Dental has you covered!

Low Radiation Digital X-Rays

Most x-rays taken with nothing in your mouth! Digital x-rays have a number of benefits over conventional x-rays. In addition to being faster - the images are available on our computer screen within seconds - they also emit significantly less radiation and require no sharp x-ray film. With just a few small digital sensors, we can get a clear and precise view of your teeth, sinuses and upper and lower jaws. Many serious dental conditions cannot be seen by the naked eye, so we incorporate digital X-rays into our routine exams to make sure we always see the big picture.

Orthodontics for All Ages

Straight teeth make a great first impression, and they’re also easier to brush and floss properly. Even if you feel like you’re too old to pursue a straighter smile, ask us about your options! Our team at Fox Chapel Family Dental can give you the smile you’ve always wanted WITHOUT those metal bars and brackets.

Periodontal Services

Healthy Gums for a Healthy Mouth. Most people know that regular dental cleanings and proper at-home care are the keys to healthy teeth. But did you know that cleanings and home care are just as important for your gums? According to the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), 50% of American adults currently have some form of gum disease. Left untreated, gum disease can worsen and lead to an increased risk of tooth loss, heart attack, stroke and birth complications for women who are pregnant.

While severe gum disease often requires surgical intervention, our doctors can treat cases that are detected early with less invasive techniques first, including local antibiotics, deep cleanings and medicated rinses.
