Because there are strong links between your oral health and your overall health, comprehensive dental care is important not just for getting a beautiful smile and keeping tooth pain at bay, but also for maintaining a healthy body. Greenwood, WA dentist Dr. Lael Banner and his team at Banner Dental provide comprehensive care to the Greenwood community, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic services. Our goal is to help you and your family achieve and maintain happy, healthy smiles. We also offer different sedation options for those with dental anxiety.
If you want to maintain a healthy smile, quality preventive care is essential. Our array of preventive treatments is designed to help you get and maintain optimal oral health.
It is recommended that you have a routine cleaning and exam every six months at our Greenwood dental office. Regular exams help Dr. Lael diagnose problems early and provide you with conservative treatment.
Protective sealants arm molars and pre-molars against the build-up of sugars and acid on teeth that cause decay. Sealants are typically placed on children’s teeth.
Help protect your teeth against decay with regular fluoride treatments. We offer fluoride treatments to patients of all ages.
Nightguards are ideal for patients who wake up with headaches or jaw pain due to nighttime clenching and grinding of teeth. Nightguards are custom fitted to give patients proper protection while they sleep.
If you or your child plays contact sports, our custom athletic mouthguards protect teeth, jaws, and mouth from trauma.
Throat and oral cancer affects nearly 42,000 Americans per year, and early detection is essential to successful treatment. When you visit us for your routine exam, our hygienist will exam your cheeks, tongue, jaw, and mouth for early signs of oral cancer.

Sometimes our teeth need a little extra attention. Dr. Lael is committed to partnering with patients to provide the most conservative dental solutions possible. Our restorative treatments will help give your smile a second chance.
We offer mercury-free and natural tooth- colored composite fillings at your Dentist Office in Greenwood. If we notice decay during your exam, we will discuss your options with you and, if possible, fill the tooth the same day.
All porcelain crowns and bridges, also known as caps, cover teeth that have cracks or chips, or are broken. They also are placed on top of dental implants when replacing missing teeth. To make your crown, we use a mold of your teeth so that the fit is comfortable. Once we have fitted and placed your crown, it will look, feel, and function just like your other natural teeth.
Bridges “bridge” the gap between teeth when you are missing one or more teeth. Bridges connect to crowns placed on either side of the gap, and a false tooth or teeth on the bridge sit in place of the missing teeth. Bridges look natural and restore full function to your teeth.
Dentures are often the best solution for replacing many missing teeth. Advancements in dentures mean that ill-fitting, uncomfortable, and unnatural-looking dentures are a thing of the past! After a few visits to your dentist in Greenwood for fitting of your dentures, you’ll be on your way to eating all your favorite foods, and smiling and talking with confidence once again.
If you’re in pain due to an infected tooth, Greenwood dentist, Dr. Lael Banner can perform root canal therapy to relieve your pain and save your smile. Root canal therapy involves removing the infection from the tooth pulp and placing a crown to add strength to the tooth and prevent future infection. Root canals are often associated with pain, but most patients report that the pain from the infected tooth is far worse. If you need a root canal, Dr. Lael will walk you through the procedure, discuss your sedation options, and address any questions or concerns you might have.
Dental implants are increasingly the best alternative in tooth replacement for patients young and old. Unlike dentures, a dental implant is a permanent solution that remains in your mouth.Implants are designed to match the color, size, and appearance of your natural teeth, making them an excellent long-term option for restoring the look and function of your smile.

Greenwood, WA dentist Dr. Lael Banner can help you dramatically change the appearance of your teeth with porcelain veneers. Thin, durable, tooth-colored sheets of porcelain are bonded directly to the front side of teeth to close small gaps, cover chips or cracks, and even whiten severely discolored teeth.
Brighten your smile in just a single visit to our Greenwood office. Our professional whitening treatment will brighten your smile drastically, and you can return to your busy life immediately.
Do you want to straighten your smile but not deal with the “metal mouth” of conventional braces? At Banner Dental, we offer adults and older teens Invisalign® aligner therapy. Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of plastic aligner trays. As you progress through the trays, your teeth gradually move into their perfect positions, giving you a smile you’ll want to show off all the time. The trays are clear, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. They are also removable, meaning you can brush your teeth and eat as you normally would.
