This female patient came to our Cary, NC, dental practice with jagged and uneven front teeth. Dr. Kearney used high-quality porcelain veneers to completely conceal the imperfections in her smile. A customized cosmetic dentistry treatment plan was created just for her, so each veneer matched the size, shade, and color of her existing teeth perfectly. Now she has a bright, even smile that a Hollywood celebrity would envy!

I’ve been going to Dr. Kearney since I was about 5, I’m pretty sure my family was one of his first clients since we have been going there for 27 years now. His staff is always friendly and they are very clean I’ve never had a billing issue or service issue in the entirety of the time I’ve been going.

Featured Dental Procedures

Sleep Apnea

Waking at night gasping for air is a telltale sign of sleep apnea. This condition is caused when throat muscles in your upper airway collapse during sleep. Sleep apnea can lead to headaches, snoring, daytime fatigue, mood swings, and heart disease. Dr. Kearney works closely with a local sleep specialist who can administer an at-home sleep test and diagnose sleep apnea (North Carolina requires take-home sleep tests be overseen by a sleep doctor). If sleep apnea is diagnosed, Dr. Kearney can treat mild cases with a customized mouth guard to realign the jaw and keep your airway open.

TMJ Disorder

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) connect your jaws to your skull. These joints, and the muscles, tendons, and nerves around them, help us chew, yawn, talk, and move our jaws from side to side. Inflammation or damage to the TMJs can cause your jaw to lock, as well as headaches, jaw, neck, and facial pain, and popping and clicking in the jaw. Dr. Kearney has 15 years of experience treating TMJ issues with nonsurgical treatments like mouth guards, injections, electrical stimulation, and laser therapy.

Crooked or misaligned teeth can affect the way you look, eat, and speak. Dr. Kearney offers clear plastic Invisalign® aligners to create a straight and healthy smile. This type of orthodontic treatment works by gently shifting your teeth into proper alignment. Patients switch to a new set of custom aligners every two weeks. Many of our patients prefer Invisalign aligners to traditional metal braces because they are more discreet and comfortable. And unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed when you eat and when it is time to brush and floss.

Porcelain Veneers

Even a minor flaw can mar an otherwise stunning smile. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that have chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and minor misalignment. Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that fit over the front of a tooth, concealing imperfections to create a stunning smile. Your veneers will be custom-designed out of high-quality porcelain that has been color-matched to your smile for a lifelike, natural appearance. Porcelain veneer treatment can be completed in just two visits to our Cary, NC, dental practice.

A Quick Look at TMJ Disorder

A misaligned bite causes chronic tension and pain in the muscles around the jaw. The cartilage in the jaw becomes misshapen and displaced over time. Tension from TMD radiates down the neck to the rest of the body. If the cartilage deteriorates, the jawbone will grind against the skull.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder occurs when the two joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull become compromised or damaged. This can cause pain in the jaw, neck, or shoulders, as well as headaches, lockjaw, teeth grinding, and other symptoms. Dr. Kearney has specialized TMJ disorder training, including a craniofacial pain residency at The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain Institute. He offers several treatments to help relieve symptoms, including custom-fitted oral appliances, laser therapy, and trigger point injections.
