If you need an experienced dentist in the Indianapolis, Indiana area, please call Dr. John Phelps at 317-818-9858 today. Dr. Phelps provides exceptional service to patients living in Carmel, Noblesville, and all surrounding areas of Indiana.
We offer a comprehensive range of general dentistry services including:
- Routine cleanings and examinations
- Fluoride treatments
- Gum disease treatment
- Root canal
- Tooth colored fillings
These services are geared towards preventing, detecting, and treating common oral health problems and may be useful at varying times to most of our patients. Cleanings and examinations, part of the foundation of a healthy smile, should occur every six months for optimal effectiveness. During these visits, we will work directly with you and your needs to help you develop an at-home routine that serves to protect your teeth and gums for years to come.
In addition to general services, we offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments such as:
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
- Same day dental crowns
- Gum contouring
Some of these options have both cosmetic and functional purposes, allowing them to enhance and strengthen your smile. Others are simply designed for beauty.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Phelps has received additional training in the creation of false teeth and tooth replacement options. Among those offered by Dr. Phelps are:
Dr. Phelps also offers treatment for neuromuscular dental issues such as TMJ.
At our Indianapolis dentistry practice, we utilize advanced technology to help ensure absolute patient comfort and safety, and to help ensure the most pleasing and effective results. During your biannual examinations, safe and comfortable digital diagnostic tools are used to detect even the smallest of oral health issues. This allows Dr. Phelps to provide swift treatment for issues like decay and infection, helping preserve more of your natural tooth - an effort that can be assisted with the tooth colored fillings and CEREC restorations we offer.
Before placing restorations, we use 3D imaging and digital photographs to carefully plan your smile. This allows us to better predict outcomes and gives you, the patient, a clear idea of what your restorations can accomplish. 3D smile planning can be done for both cosmetic and general dentistry restorations and is commonly used for planning tooth replacement services as well.
Dental problems vary from person to person. There may be the physical pain of a toothache, the inability to enjoy certain foods, or the distress and embarrassment of an unattractive smile. But not everyone feels comfortable visiting the dentist.
We are pleased to offer sedation dentistry options that can help ease anxiety, encourage comfort, and produce a calm that lasts throughout your procedure. If you believe that this service would be of use to you, we would be happy to discuss the option during your initial consultation. The safe and effective forms of dental sedation that we offer are suitable for most patients and can be used for any of our services, including basic cleanings. If you have sworn off the dentist out of fear, call us today to learn how we can help.
When you visit Dr. Phelps, you receive the full, individualized attention you deserve. We strive to provide you with extraordinary customer service, and we have a lengthy track record of doing just that. Our goal is to make you well and whole again.
This commitment to meeting your needs and goals extends to the dentist's chair as well. We are committed to providing you with procedures that safely and effectively improve your oral health and beauty - and insist on the highest quality restorations to help ensure the longest-lasting results.
Our procedures are often life-changing for our patients, many of whom never imagined that they could overcome severe dental anxiety and achieve the beautiful smile they've long dreamed of.
