Dr. Dougherty is a highly skilled dentist that has studied implantology and is well-equipped to help you through your implant surgery. It is important to replace missing teeth because once the original tooth and root are gone, your jawbone begins to shrink. A dental implant can help stop the shrinkage.
The dental implant is composed of two parts: the implant post or root and the actual implant itself. The post will be attached to your jaw by Dr. Dougherty and allowed to heal. Once it’s healed, then the implants can be attached and your smile will be repaired. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, in part because they’re attached to your jawbone just like your natural teeth.
If you’re missing teeth, dental implants could be the treatment you’ve been waiting for. We’d love to help you learn just how easy it can be. The team here at Delmarva Sedation Dentistry wants to see you smiling proudly again!

Dr. Dougherty proudly offers custom porcelain veneers for patients who would like a smile makeover. With porcelain veneers, he can quickly transform irregular teeth into a sparkling white, uniformly attractive set.
Dental professionals like Dr. Dougherty consider porcelain veneers to be one of the best restoration methods available, because they are gentle to gum tissue, require a minimal amount of tooth preparation, and provide lifelike results.
At your first veneer appointment, Dr. Dougherty will discuss your cosmetic dentistry goals, as well as review smiles with you to learn your preferences. If porcelain veneers are the best solution for your needs, the doctor will design your custom veneers and create models that will allow you a sneak peek into what your new smile will look like. If you’re happy with the proposed design, Dr. Dougherty will obtain your custom fabricated veneers from a dental laboratory. (more…)
