Lake Tahoe Dentist for You

The Placerville Dental Group wants to offer Lake Tahoe the best dental service available. While our dentists provide a wide range of services and treatments, we consider ourselves specialists when it comes to:

Preventive Dentistry

Free Second OpinionsAssisting you to save the teeth you have is the most vital part of dentistry. The goal of the Placerville Dental Group is to save you time, prevent pain, and give you long-term use of your own teeth. At a minimum, this process requires a semi-annual dental exam and dental prophylaxis. Yearly x-rays allow our Lake Tahoe dentists to see the unseen – possible decay hiding below the surface of your teeth, gums, and roots. Decay, abscesses, tumors and cysts all contain the ability to do awful injury before you even notice it. Procedures for gum disease prevent gum recession, cavities, and tooth loss. Preventative dentistry – saving your teeth for a healthy future!

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic DentistryHabits, aging, and time bring alterations to our smile and our teeth. From side effects as simple as tooth stains to treatments that are more complicated, like replacement of lost teeth, cosmetic dentistry returns youth and functionality, making it easier for you to eat and smile. Tooth whitening cleans out the stains that come from smoking, wine, dark beer, tea, coffee, berries, and other foods. Veneers go over minor deformities, like chipped teeth, improving the teeth while restoring appearance and function. In combination with restoration dentistry methods, cosmetic dentistry restores lost teeth via bridges, implants, and crowns.

Restoration Dentistry

Restoration DentistryDecay, trauma and accidents create an incredible toll on the teeth of our clients here in Lake Tahoe. Despite wonderful advances in oral hygiene and dental care, many people still suffer cavities, need root canal therapy, and want to replace missing teeth. Restoring missing or extracted teeth is the peak of restoration dentistry, and in extreme circumstances the Placerville Dental Group is ready to provide full-mouth restoration services. We accomplish this by a combination of dentures, implants, crowns, and bridges, fitting every dental repair program to the cost and health needs of each patient.


Providing Invisalign to Lake Tahoe is a noteworthy goal of our modern dental practice. Invisible aligners provide excellent benefits over traditional braces, and our dentists and patients prefer to use Invisalign wherever possible. An original provider of aligner tech, Invisalign is “clearly” in the lead when it comes to ease of use and improvements in materials and manufacturing. If you need orthodontics, Invisalign is certainly the most convenient and comfortable means for repairing your smile and bite. Learn more about it in the portion of our website dedicated to Invisalign treatment.

Sedation Dentistry

One of the worst syndromes creating tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss is fear of the dentist. At the Placerville Dental Group, our Lake Tahoe dentists offer oral conscious sedation (commonly called sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry). Sedation dentistry removes the overwhelming stress by taking away both the pain and awareness of any dental procedure. From minor dental procedures, like a dental cleaning, to major procedures, like implants or oral surgery, sedation dentistry makes you totally unaware of what happens in the dental chair. For more information about the procedures we employ, read our webpage on sleep dentistry.

Dental Implants

Dental ImplantsFor restoration of missing teeth, our Lake Tahoe dentists absolutely believe in the benefits of implants. Implants are the premiere technique for tooth replacement and are used whenever possible for the advantages and health of our customers. Implants mimic the presence of roots, preserving jawbone strength and eradicating premature aging. They work almost as effectively as your own teeth and are the nearest possible replacement. From replacement of a single tooth with one implant to replacement of multiple teeth with many implants, a bridge or implant-mounted dentures, implants transform the oral health of our Lake Tahoe clients on a standard basis. Visit our implant procedural page for more information on what implants will likely mean for you.

Emergency Dentistry

Emergency Dental CareWhen you experience painful toothache, tooth loss, or damage to a restoration like a crown or bridge, emergency dentistry is the speediest way to fix your difficulty. The Placerville Dental Group is ready to provide emergency dentistry for Lake Tahoe customers.
