Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry & Comprehensive Dental Care

By combining restorative and cosmetic dentistry with comprehensive care, individuals can achieve a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures.

Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth.

Cosmetic Dentures

A well made denture is not only comfortable and functions properly; it also allows the wearer to smile with confidence, knowing that their smile is no different than it would be with natural teeth. Creating a cosmetic denture is really an art in the hands of a skilled dentist.

Periodontal Therapy

Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances that form in the pockets around the teeth. The removal of this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training to effectively remove all of the bacteria.

Six Month Smiles

This short term orthodontic treatment has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

Same Day Crowns

Same day crown technology allows our practice to create tooth-colored porcelain restorations for healthy, beautiful smiles in a single appointment.

Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!

In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain laminates can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. The harder one tries to breathe, the tighter the airway seals. This airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person, unconsciously closing the jaw and returning the tongue and throat to a normal position.

We offer effective, nonsurgical relief from sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders—including snoring. Ask us how you can get the restful, healthy sleep you’ve been missing.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing traditional dentures. Implants can be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth.

Family Care

From toddlers to the elderly, our skilled dental team is familiar with the unique needs of every patient, no matter their age. Our goal is to help them develop great oral habits that will last them a lifetime.

Advanced Dental Technologies

Embracing these advancements, we prioritize not only the well-being of our patients but also the continual evolution of dentistry itself. Welcome to a future where technology and expertise converge to create a new standard in dental care.

Digital Practice

Our use of digital x-ray and 3D technology reduces your radiation exposure and eliminates the use of chemicals. We can see and treat problems long before they become visible on traditional x-rays. The increased precision means saving you time and money and avoiding complications with your treatments.

Cosmetic Bonding

Composite resin is a white, tooth colored material that can be shaded to match your teeth. This material can give you a low-cost improvement in your mile.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is an excellent treatment for patients with extensive dental needs, or who are concerned about anxiety, difficulty getting numb, or sensitive teeth.

Mercury Free

The common silver filling contains mercury. Our practice uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result.

Smile Whitening

Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.

Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.

We offer same day Zoom whitening with Philips Zoom.
