Enhance Your Smile

A smile is a beautiful, universal action that can instantly warm the soul. Here are some of the ways we can help our patients smile with confidence:

Bleaching/ Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Let us help you brighten your smile with our noninvasive, at home dental whitening kit (includes trays to personally fit your teeth.)

Bonding

Bonding is a one visit procedure to repair chips, and gaps between teeth. Bonding can also be used to cover stained teeth to enhance your smile.

Veneers

A veneer is a custom made porcelain facing or shell that is bonded to each tooth to enhance the look of your smile. They are made of tooth colored materials and can be used to improve the color of teeth that have been worn down or stained. In most cases a small portion of the tooth will need to be removed to make space for the veneer. In some cases a veneer can be placed on teeth without preparing the tooth.

Crowns

A crown, often described as a “cap,” is a dental restoration that encases the entire visible portion of a tooth. When teeth are badly decayed, broken or cracked, a crown can restore the tooth. Another application for crowns is when a tooth has had a root canal. We gladly offer our patients digital impressions with our 3M True Definition Scanner for a more pleasant experience and a more accurate fit.

Implants

When replacing teeth, dental Implants most closely provide the feel, function, and appearance of natural teeth when compared to any other treatment. A dental implant is placed into the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and becomes a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture containing multiple teeth.
