We’re working to keep your beautiful smile

Aging patients know many years present unique challenges. When it comes to your aging dental health, rapid changes seem to happen almost daily. A good partnership with our team can help your smile continue to thrive these sometimes difficult years.

We work with you to make sure you understand each procedure before we begin.  If you have questions, we encourage asking our technician and dentist to explain each procedure more clearly.

We are now offering a new clear aligner treatment system through SureSmile® that allows you to start clear aligner treatment and be seen by Dr. Butts!

Convenient, Expert, Local Clear Alignment Treatment


SureSmile® Clear Aligners are designed to ensure they fit comfortably, promote better oral hygiene and deliver the exact tooth movements needed to achieve your ideal smile.

Clear Aligners are a series of plastic aligners created using initial impressions or digital scans of your teeth as the starting point.  The aligners are plastic replicas of your teeth. Wearing them puts gentle pressure on the teeth, ever-so-slightly repositioning them over time. Each set of aligners is worn for a week or two before going to the next set. Over time, teeth reach their ideal clinical alignment.

All of our Services

Cleaning and Prevention

Regular professional exams and cleanings, a dedicated at-home hygiene routine, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.

Pediatric Dentistry

Children are constantly growing and require frequent checkups to ensure they are developing properly. With an early preventative hygiene plan, we can prevent childhood tooth decay and a lifetime of problems.

Cosmetic Dentistry

The effects of a bad smile may ripple through your life. Fortunately, a growing range of options enables anyone to enjoy a stunning new smile. Dr. Butts’ passion for enhancing smiles brings you the best in modern dentistry.

Composite Fillings

Cavities, chips, and fractures can occur on any tooth surface throughout the mouth. The composite filling material is tooth-colored and provides a versatile solution to many common problems. Blended into a prepared area, the composite polishes to a smooth, undetectable finish.

Porcelain Crowns

Damaged teeth might seem hopeless, but there’s often a solid foundation underneath. A crown, or cap, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. Utilizing modern porcelain materials, you’ll have a difficult time trying to find where the crown ends and the tooth starts.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth are the hardest substance in our bodies and can withstand a tremendous amount of force. But damage can occur, especially when grinding forces start to wear it away. A habit of nighttime clenching or grinding will harm teeth, muscles, and jaw joints over time. Protecting against abrasive forces is critical.

Tooth Replacement

Dr. Butts’ background in restorative dentistry allows him to develop solutions for every scenario. 

Extractions and Preservation

Wisdom teeth, extra teeth, or very crowded teeth present situations that may mean treatment involving removal. 

Oral Appliances

One of our goals at Wellspring Family Dental is to provide the most conservative treatment possible in every situation. Oral appliances offer simple, non-invasive treatment for a variety of conditions. Regardless of the application, every appliance we prescribe is custom-crafted just for you.

Whether we’re treating nighttime sleep grinding, a diagnosed case of obstructive sleep apnea, bite problems, or other jaw joint disorders, appliance therapy may be a valuable complement to your treatment. Dr. Butts uses a variety of innovative designs depending on treatment goals and your preferences.

Porcelain Veneers

Custom-crafted to each tooth, veneers provide an artist’s touch to your smile. Regardless of your vision for your smile, chances are veneers offer an answer. When today’s modern materials meet our passion for cosmetic excellence, you’ll be amazed at what you see smiling back at you in the mirror.


Teeth rarely fracture predictably. Sometimes a break is too big for a filling, but not big enough for a crown. Porcelain onlays provide an excellent solution for teeth that need extra reinforcement without being covered entirely. Bonded into place, they provide years of natural feel, function, and esthetics.

Porcelain Bridges

Dental bridges have traditionally been a top choice for replacing missing teeth. With the widespread use of dental implants, more options are now available to bridge gaps in your smile. Resilient, natural-looking porcelains, engineered into a bridge, can eliminate spaces of every size.

Root Canals

Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth


Orthodontics involves teeth straightening while maintaining proper jaw alignment, combining beauty and function. Identifying problems when a child is growing may allow for easier treatment, but it’s never too late to discuss ways to enhance your smile!

Sedation Dentistry

Anxiety prevents to 50% of the population from getting even basic dental care. Simple oral medications taken shortly before an appointment can take the edge off, removing the barrier to a healthier you.

You can experience dental treatment in a comfortable, customized approach with several different methods of sedation. 


Deep crevices run across the chewing surface of molars. Even though a toothbrush can skim across these surfaces, the narrow grooves trap bacteria beyond the bristles’ reach. Cavities may form and end up affecting the tooth’s nerve without warning, destroying valuable tooth structure. Protecting the grooves with a bonded sealer might be worth exploring.

Gum Contouring

Your gums are like a soft tissue framework around your teeth providing support and esthetic value. Sometimes a little gentle recontouring of the gum line brings a nice boost to your smile. Plus, properly shaped gums contribute to a healthy environment that is easy to maintain and helps support your overall dental health.

Full or Partial Dentures

Sometimes a removable appliance is the best way to replace missing teeth. Dr. Butts can help you decide whether a partial denture or a complete denture would restore your mouth to its optimal function and appearance. Sometimes a combination of dental implants and dentures are used for unprecedented stability and confidence.

Intra-Oral Camera

A picture explains what words never can, especially when it comes to your teeth. An intra-oral camera can take pictures with such detail, it can show cracks and stress marks in a tooth that can’t be seen with the naked eye.

Teeth Cleaning

Who doesn’t love that freshly polished feel of your teeth after a cleaning? Our highly-trained, compassionate registered dental hygienists do more than just polish your teeth. They remove plaque, tartar buildup, probe your gums for signs of periodontal disease, and much more!

Oral Cancer Screening

At each visit, our team does a medical history update and reviews any changes (even subtle ones). Even the smallest change in the soft tissues of your mouth will be examined closely. Early detection of oral cancer saves many lives each year, and our team is highly trained to detect even smallest abnormality.

Periodontal Therapy

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. When left untreated, you can expect receding gums and tooth loss. But it doesn’t have to ruin your smile. A targeted, strategic cleaning schedule and a precise at-home regimen can help keep this chronic condition under control.

Ortho Screenings

Metal grins fill the pages of many high school yearbooks. But braces offer benefits at many different stages of life. Identifying problems at an early age allows for early treatment which often results in quicker treatment. Monitoring growth and development at your child’s regular preventive visits is just part of our commitment to your family’s dental health.

Porcelain Bridges

Dental bridges have traditionally been a top choice for replacing missing teeth. With the widespread use of dental implants, more options are now available to bridge gaps in your smile. Resilient, natural-looking porcelains, engineered into a bridge, can eliminate spaces of every size.


Dental implants are aesthetic, versatile, and highly reliable options for single tooth replacement, replacement of multiple teeth, “snap in” denture retention, and full-mouth rehabilitation (multiple implants + full-arch fixed bridges, AKA fixed hybrid.) Call us today to learn how direct tooth replacement with implants can restore your smile to its natural beauty.

Digital X-ray

Digital films with exquisite detail and dramatically reduced radiation exposure offer the ultimate in safety and diagnostic capability.

Healthy Teeth Are More Than Just Brushing. You Need Regular Preventive Maintenance

A regular home prevention routine usually consists of brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once per day. But did you know there are other tools to make taking care of your mouth a little easier? Depending on your needs, there is special toothpaste, rinses, and even flossing aids that can help you keep your smile bright and healthy for years to come. Wellspring Family Dental can help you find the best tools to enhance your daily hygiene routine making your professional cleaning appointments shorter and less stressful.
