BracesInvisalign is a breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted – without the hassle of braces.
Invisalign OrthodonticsAn average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. You’ll see your Invisalign Certified Orthodontist or Dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by your doctor for your course of treatment.
Dental ImplantsPlenty. The worst offender is smoking. Study after study shows that in the face of an established periodontal condition, smokers have worse gums. Not only do they have deeper pockets and more bone loss, but they dont heal as well as non-smokers do. This is especially germane when periodontists and oral surgeons place dental implants in smokers. Smokers can successfully have implants, but they tend to heal slowly, have more infections, and experience more problems with their implants.
BridgesTooth loss, significant decay and fractures can dramatically affect your appearance and make you look older. Today`s crowns and bridges are more beautiful than ever before. You do not have to worry about metal line showing if your gums recede. We can strengthen your weak tooth from breaking with a natural look.
VeneersVeneers should last for many years, but they can chip or break, just as your own teeth can. Because veneers are stronger than simple bonding, they are also more resistant to stains and chipping. There are no hard-and-fast rules about how long porcelain veneers will last. While you can certainly expect your veneers to last many years, it is unrealistic to expect them to last forever. With good home care and by exercising good judgment, it seems likely that a porcelain veneer could last well in excess of ten to twenty years. Porcelain always has the possibility of breaking if you hit or chew the wrong thing with your tooth, however, in our experience, this is very rare with veneers done in our office. To date, we have seen less than a 1% chance over 15 years that a veneer that we have prepared will chip or break.
CrownsIt`s a dentist-fabricated replacement of one or more cusps of your tooth. We provide this valuable service because we feel they are much more conservative than a full crown.
Root Canal TreatmentPorcelain veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s colour, size, or shape. Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury, or as a result of a root-canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.
DenturesBesides helping us look good, teeth are important for a host of other reasons. For one, strong firm teeth enable us to chew our food more comfortably. Properly masticated food makes for better digestion. Everyone likes a healthy, bright smile. First impressions count. Besides making you look and feel good, teeth help us to speak clearly. People who have had the misfortune of losing all their teeth and wearing dentures, can have difficulty speaking. They also cant eat all the things they want, are often self-conscious about their “choppers,” complain that they cant taste their food as well as they used to, and may even have trouble breathing when they sleep. Those are enough reasons to keep our teeth, and the best way to start is with good oral hygiene.
Tooth WhiteningOur at-home bleaching provides you with dazzling results…all while you sleep at night (or for 1-2 hours during the day).

Teeth CleaningThe American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommend a dental check-up at least twice a year for most children and adults. However, some children and adults require more frequent visits due to increased risk of tooth decay or a need for more frequent dental cleanings due to braces, poor oral hygiene and increased risk of periodontal disease. Your dentist will evaluate you or your child’s specific needs and recommend a dental prevention regimen.
