You can look good and have a healthy smile. Most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth do not realize the numerous ways cosmetic dentistry can heal a smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, stained or discolored teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth and having a “gummy” smile. Your dentist creates a customized treatment plan for you, based on your age, goals and where you are financial comfortable level.
Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Porcelain veneers are conservative cosmetic dentistry that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have chipped teeth, crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you. After minimal tooth preparation, we will skillfully bond custom mad pieces of porcelain to your teeth, creating a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance and your self-esteem. You are only a couple of appointments away from having the smile you have always wanted!
Tooth Whitening Systems
Whiter, Brighter Teeth!
Dentist supervised tooth whitening gives you the smile you always wanted.
Anyone can have the confidence that a bright, white smile gives you. Tooth whitening is safe, effective and long lasting. There are two main methods to get excellent results: a custom home tooth whitening kit or an in-the-office procedure. Are you are thinking of other cosmetic improvements, such as crowns, porcelain veneers or replacing old discolored fillings? Consider whitening your teeth first and any future restorations we make for you will be matched to your whitened teeth, giving you fantastic results.
A root canal involves removing the soft tissue within the tooth – the pulp – when it has become infected and inflamed. Your dentist gently files the infected tissue out of the root canals of the tooth (this is where the procedure gets its name) and fills the void with an inert material. The procedure is completed with the placement of a filling or in some cases, a crown.
Biolase In-Office Whitening
If you desire more immediate results, we offer an in-office whitening procedure. The advanced laser tooth whitening system is a powerful, in-office procedure that produces fast, dramatic results. Your dentist will apply a specialized gel to your teeth using a customized isolation system. During that time, a specialized light source interacts with the gel to break up even the strongest stains and discoloration. By the end of your appointment, you will have a smile that looks like it did years ago!
Imagine removing surface stains and having the white smile you had when you were a teenager! Anyone can have the confidence that comes from having a bright, white smile.
Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of stress during your lifetime. Teeth may show this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping and cracking. Crowns restore your teeth and your smile to look brilliant once again. Porcelain crowns can be made out of porcelain fused to metal or out of all porcelain and can be shaded to match your teeth. Crowns made of precious metal (gold) are also an option. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specifically fitted to restore functionality and enhance the appearance of your smile. If you have pain when chewing or temperature sensitivity, ask your dentist if crowns are right for you.
Sometimes gum disease, injury, decay or simply wear results in the loss of a tooth. A missing tooth or teeth can create significant problems for your dental health if not corrected. Over time your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to chew efficiently in the area of the missing tooth. Neighboring teeth may begin to move about, moving into the area and resulting in discomfort, pain and more problems down the road.
Bridges made of porcelain “bridge the gap” in your smile. Your dentist can create a lifelike, functional bridge to correct your smile, restore your bite and alleviate your discomfort. A bridge is created out of metal, alloys and / or porcelain and utilizes the teeth on both sides of the gap as its supportive structure. After some preparation of the two neighboring teeth, crowns are created for them. A prosthetic tooth, or pontic, is fused between the crowns to fill the area of missing tooth. A bridge is a semi-permanent dental restoration, meaning it can only be removed by your dentist, so you can rest assured that your porcelain bridge will be a lasting restoration for your oral health.
Bonding refers to the placement of tooth-colored resin to correct chipped and broken teeth, discolored teeth and in some cases, space between teeth. Bonding is generally considered more conservative than veneers or other cosmetic dentistry. The benefits of bonding include the ability to maintain the natural structure of the tooth and the ability to color and sculpt the resin to create natural looking teeth. Like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee or other staining foods.
Do you see a lot of your gum tissue when you smile? Many people with “gummy” smiles do not know that there are treatments available to cosmetically enhance the look of your gums.

The entire process takes just a few visits and because of advancements in cosmetic techniques, your comfort is assured. Call us and begin transforming your smile today!

If you have been diagnosed with and treated for periodontal (gum) disease, regularly scheduled supportive therapy is vitally important to your success in management of disease progression. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, “following a course of active periodontal treatment and periodic ongoing care at regularly prescribed intervals is essential.
Even if you have healthy teeth and gums, the way they fit within your mouth is another important aspect of your dental health. If your teeth are improperly positioned, you may suffer from an irregular bite. While everyone wants straight teeth for aesthetic reasons, there are major health concerns associated with your bite as well.
