Cosmetic Dentistry

There's no reason to hide behind less-than-perfect teeth. After all, a clean, healthy mouth and a beautiful smile are your best assets. Our practice specializes in a wide array of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including bonding, crowns, and veneers, and we aim to give you the dazzling results you want-and deserve. We are devoted to giving you the exact look you desire, whether that requires delicate enhancement or more complex procedures. Here are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer that are designed to beautify your smile:

Smile Makeover
Let us create a dazzling new smile for you! Based on your natural teeth and specific facial features, our dentists can custom-design a beautiful smile exactly suited to you. Our doctors will first evaluate your mouth's overall structural and aesthetic needs. Next, we employ a wide array of techniques - including veneers, crowns and onlays - to create a stronger and more aesthetically balanced smile. Then, for the finishing touch, we polish off your new look with teeth whitening for a dazzling, beautiful new you. If you are interested in finding out what we could do for your smile, please contact our practice today.

Veneers
An excellent alternative to crowns, veneers can perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin, customized material designed to slide over the teeth, look incredibly natural, are long lasting, and are relatively easy to apply. For more information about veneers, please see our veneer page or contact our practice today.

Crowns
Also called caps, crowns are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. Crowns provide support to damaged teeth while also restoring functionality and esthetic balance. Ultimately, crowns can dramatically improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury. For more information about crowns, please contact us today.

Bonding
A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked, or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly and painlessly restore your smile's natural beauty. During the procedure, a thin coating of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth, strengthening them and making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. To find out if bonding is the right option for you, please contact us today.

Teeth Whitening
Many of us feel that our smiles are most striking when our teeth look especially white, but unfortunately, soft drinks, coffee, tea, and tobacco can leave behind ugly stains. To help you restore your gleaming, bright white smile and to give you an added boost of confidence, we offer many options, such as in-office whitening and take-home bleaching. Please contact us today to find out which teeth whitening option might be best for you.

BriteSmile®
BriteSmile® is a fast, easy, in-office teeth whitening procedure that takes just one hour to complete. A hydrogen-peroxide gel is carefully applied to teeth and then activated by a patented, blue spectrum light. BriteSmile® is neat and comfortable, and results are immediate. It will not harm your teeth, gums, or dental work. For more information about BriteSmile®, please contact us today.

Restorative Dentistry

Our practice is proud to offer comprehensive restorative dentistry with a focus on beautiful, natural-looking results. Restorative dentistry seeks to repair or replace your natural teeth in order to return your mouth to full functionality and aesthetic balance. This work can range from simple fillings and crowns to more complex root canal therapy and tooth replacement implants. No matter what stage of restorative care your teeth require, we can offer solutions. Please contact us today for further information.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are an excellent solution to missing individual teeth. Not only do they eliminate gaps, but they also provide a comfortable fit and are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Dental implants attach artificial teeth below the gumline using an anchor. The anchor holds the implant in place, allowing excess bone and gum to grow around it. Then, once the implant has firmly bonded with the jaw, an aesthetic crown is attached to the implant, mimicking a natural tooth. Because dental implants require surgery, they are intended only for candidates with sufficient bone and healthy gums. Our practice has more than 18 years experience with dental implants and has placed hundreds of these wonderful devices. To learn more about dental implants, please contact us today.

Full Mouth Restoration
Sometimes, patients come in needing a significant amount of dental work. There can be a number of reasons for this. In some cases, badly neglected teeth need substantial restorative work to return them to full functionality. In others, regular dental work has been performed over the years, but in piecemeal fashion with various dentists. These "one-off" fixes may not function well as a unit or may have begun to deteriorate at different rates. Other causes can include periodontal problems, the need to remove mercury amalgam fillings, or crowded, badly aligned, or aging teeth that are contributing to bite alignment problems or teeth and jaw wear. Thanks to advances in restorative materials, our practice can offer superior, natural looking restorations that are almost impossible to distinguish from your own teeth. Contact us today to find out what a full mouth restoration could do for your smile.

Featured Services

Orthodontics
Having straight teeth is important for both health and appearance. Not only do we have traditional metal braces, but we also offer newer, subtler varieties. One option is clear braces, which straighten teeth without calling attention to the fact that you have braces. Another option is Invisalign®, a unique new treatment option. Rather than using wires and brackets, Invisalign® uses custom-made, removable aligner trays that move teeth into place discreetly and comfortably. All of our orthodontics are performed on site in our practice. To learn more about our different orthodontic options for you, your child, or your teen, please contact our office today.

IV Sedation Dentistry
To alleviate pain and to ensure our patient's maximum comfort during oral treatment, our specially trained dentists and oral surgeons offer IV sedation dentistry. Although our patients are not unconscious under sedation, they are in a complete state of relaxation and cannot feel pain. We will monitor you throughout the procedure and assure your safety. To find out if IV sedation is the best option for you, please contact us today.

Wisdom Teeth Removal
Our practice has extensive experience with removal of impacted and partially erupted wisdom teeth. We carefully evaluate each patient's wisdom teeth in terms of angle of growth, extent of impaction, gum health, any decay present, and the likelihood of future complications, then give an honest assessment of whether the teeth need to be extracted or not. If extraction is the recommended course of treatment, we offer a number of anesthesia and sedation options, including nitrous oxide and IV sedation, to ensure patients are comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. If you would like us to evaluate wisdom teeth for you or your child or teenager, please contact our practice today.

General & Preventative Dentistry

Twice-daily brushings and regular flossing are excellent for maintenance between office visits, but a healthy mouth and beautiful smile require routine general and preventative care to stay that way. Our office offers a wide range of services all under one roof-much more than is available in most dental offices. Our preventative care includes fluoride, professional breath control, and periodontal (gum disease) treatments designed to help you maintain your smile's health and beauty. Our general care includes regular oral examinations and cleanings, as well as fillings, bridges, dentures, root canals, and TMJ treatment. And for those patients who might be feeling anxious about their dental visit or who require extensive dental work, we offer IV sedation dentistry to make their dental visits pain and worry free. We also see children from ages four and up! Keep your family's teeth and gums strong and disease-free. Contact our office today to schedule a cleaning or consultation.
