Interested in Cosmetic Dentistry?
It is our pleasure and privilege to welcome you to our office. Although there have been numerous advances in dentistry of late, the most important element is still the relationship between doctor and patient. We wish to facilitate a comfortable, long-term, respectful relationship between our health care providers and our patients, instilling a confidence that you have chosen the best practice.
Any treatment that is recommended is co-diagnosed, meaning that, you and your doctor decide how best to proceed. Treatment options, advantages, prognosis, materials and fees are thoroughly discussed to ensure your complete understanding and long-term satisfaction.

Our skillful professionals using state-of-the-art technology and materials deliver superb results that are sure to please. Arrange for a private consultation to discuss your beautiful smile!
Your teeth become stained naturally as a result of the food and drink that you consume. Teeth whitening uses an ingredient to effectively lift the stain from deep within your enamel. The result is a whiter, more youthful smile! We offer 2 methods of this popular treatment. Our in-office system using a state-of-the-art activation light
yields results in about an hour. Our convenient take home system can be used during the day or night and yields maximum results in about 10 to 14 days.
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown is a protective covering that is bonded or cemented onto your tooth. It is custom made in a dental laboratory by highly qualified technicians using ceramics, noble alloys or a combination of both. A dental crown may be recommended for a tooth that has a large filling, a root canal or a fracture. A bridge is simply 3 or more crowns linked together. A bridge is recommended to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A bridge helps provide a continuous chewing surface, keeps teeth from drifting out of position, protects teeth and improve aesthetics. Crowns and bridges are quality restorations and are an excellent investment in your long-term dental health.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are an excellent remedy for chipped, cracked, spaced, stained or misaligned teeth. Dramatic results can be achieved in as few as 2 appointments. Porcelain veneers are considered long-term restorations that strengthen, protect and enhance the beauty of your smile.
This involves taking action to prevent a condition from developing or worsening. Removing plaque from your teeth by brushing and flossing prevents plaque from hardening into tartar. Having your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis is one of the easiest ways of practicing preventive dentistry. Our hygienist will custom recommend a schedule of appointments and home care regimen designed to prevent the advance of gum disease and preserve your healthy smile for years to come. All aspects of dental care prescribed in this office are based in prevention.
Rejuvenating Your Smile
Even the loss of one tooth can result in the tipping, drifting and erupting of neighboring and opposing teeth. The loss of several teeth can result in the inability to chew and speak effectively. It can also lead to the collapse of your bite causing stress on your jaw joints, facial muscles and a reduction in the vertical dimension of your face. This can create an older facial appearance with noticeable facial lines.
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. Following a period of healing, it will act much like the root of a tooth over which a dental crown will be placed. Teeth implants can support a single dental crown, long span bridges and are often used when rehabilitating an entire dentition. They are considered long term restorations and provide excellent results that are comfortable, natural-looking and high-functioning. Clear
Invisible Clear Braces
One of the most innovative advances in dentistry is the ability to straighten your teeth without traditional metal brackets. We use a series of clear, plastic, removable "aligners," which are computer generated to gently and progressively alter the position of your teeth until they are correctly aligned. Our patients are seen smiling as much during treatment as after treatment! Ask us if "invisible braces" are right for you.
The trust you place in our practice by the referral of family and friends is our greatest compliment. We are delighted when a patient refers us and promise to extend the same high-level service you have come to expect.
LUMINEERS is a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old dental crown and bridgework.
