Invisalign OrthodonticsToday is such and exciting time for dentistry. We are able to offer longer lasting, less invasive procedures that offer a superior result. Some of these treatments include same day tooth whitening, Invisalign for braces-less orthodontic treatment, and even tooth replacement through the use of osseointegrated dental Implants that restores a lost tooth’s form and function.
Dental ImplantsPeriodontal (gum) diseases are bacterial infections of the gums, bone and periodontal ligament (fibers that support the teeth and hold them in the jaw). The disease destroys the gums and supporting bone that hold your teeth in your mouth. As a result, teeth may loosen and fall out or need to be removed and replaced with dental bridges or implants.
BridgesAnts are artificial tooth roots used to support a single tooth or multiple tooth restoration. The dental implants also serves to stimulate the alveolar bone and prevent bone loss in the area of the missing tooth or teeth. Our implant restorations are virtually indistinguishable from your natural and/ or restored teeth. We prefer in most cases to use implants to restore a single missing tooth instead of “cutting down” two healthy teeth to make a dental bridge
Restorative DentistryRestorative Dentistry entails restoring the natural form and function of a tooth that is weakened by dental decay, is missing or has been extracted, or is inhibited in any way to perform its normal function. Our office offers many restorative solutions and we work with you to help you decided your best treatment option.
VeneersPorcelain Veneers requires 2 dental visits, however, after the 1st visit you will go home with you temporary veneers and they will be temporarily cemented until the final veneers are ready.
CrownsMajority of a tooth is damaged a cap (or crown) may need to be placed over the tooth to make sure that it the tooth has the integrity to withstand the normal forces that the tooth must endure on a daily basis. Gold crowns in our office are made of high noble metals that provide excellent protection for the tooth. All metal crowns are the strongest most resilient crown when compared to the PFM and all porcelain crowns
Root Canal TreatmentYour tooth will first be anesthetized (or numbed). Most Root Canals require only one visit, however there is a chance that two visits may be needed depending on if infection is present.
DenturesAble dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. We fabricate them to closely resemble your natural teeth, enhancing your smile. Complete dentures will also increase the natural opening of your teeth increasing your “vertical dimension” and will decrease facial wrinkles.
Tooth WhiteningTooth bleaching is a simple non-invasive treatment used to change the natural tooth enamel back to ideal color and create a youthful smile. The terms whitening and bleaching have been interchanged in the media recently but the FDA views the terms differently. According to the FDA, the term "bleaching" is permitted to be used only when the teeth can be whitened beyond their natural color. This applies strictly to products that contain bleach – typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamine peroxide. The term "whitening," on the other hand, refers to restoring a tooth's surface color by removing dirt and debris. So any product that cleans (like a toothpaste) is considered a whitener.
Cosmetic DentistryOur office has been providing cosmetic dentistry even before the buzzword “cosmetic” was introduced to dentistry in the ‘90s. We strive to make every restoration look natural and beautiful. We have many restorative options to achieve creating your beautiful smile.

Teeth CleaningOur routine dental cleanings (every six months) involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains naturally occurring calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth. Usually it is tooth colored and can easily be mistaken as part of the teeth, but it also can vary from brown to black in color.
Oral Cancer ScreeningWe examine your lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums, and look for any signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the nation, accounting for 40,000 new diagnosed cancers each year.
Dental ExaminationIf your dental exam reveals that you have a cavity (or what we refer to as decay) or chipped tooth, you do not need to worry that you will not longer have white teeth. Composite restorations are today the treatment of choice for many patients, and we offer tooth colored filling material (know as composite restorations) to restore your teeth to their original state. We can even restore back (or posterior) teeth with special composite material that will provide the strength the tooth needs, but provides the white color you want. Composite restorations are more technique sensitive than the silver (or amalgam) fillings are requires special training to perfect the placement of the filling. All of our dentists have restored thousands of teeth with white fillings and taken countless hours of continuing education to stay updated in the latest techniques.
