Missing Teeth?

Tooth loss can be severely detrimental to your smile aesthetics, self-confidence, dental function, and overall oral health. Whether you are missing one tooth or an entire row of teeth, we know it can be difficult. As soon as the tooth is extracted – it’s important to meet with a dentist about your options. While traditional dental bridges and dentures provide an affordable option, dental implants are longer lasting, more aesthetically pleasing, and better for the long-term health of your jaw.

Dental implants are made from biocompatible titanium and surgically inserted into your jawbone below the gum line. They bond with your surrounding tissues and are designed to provide a strong foundation for an implant-supported restoration, such as a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture.

Slightly Stained or Discolored Teeth?

Over time, teeth can lose their natural sheen and even start to look light yellow as a result of the foods you eat, aging, or certain lifestyle habits. This is never an appealing feature to display. In fact, whiter teeth can enhance your attractiveness and influence you both professionally and personally. Most people attribute a bright and healthy smile to trustworthiness, confidence, and success. The average consumer spends hundreds of dollars every year on over-the-counter products just to preserve a whiter smile. However, seeking professional teeth whitening delivers faster, more effective results in a matter of days. Lighten your smile by several shades in the comfort of your home with customized whitening trays and professional strength whitening gel.

Crooked Teeth?

Tired of that one tooth that juts out away from the others, or teeth that overlap and keep you from smiling confidently? Did you know you can straighten your misaligned teeth without the uncomfortable or unattractive bracket-and-wire braces? If you have put off correcting your teeth out of fear of traditional braces, we offer Invisalign®. This discreet orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry solution uses a series of clear aligners to gradually shift teeth into proper position. Most people can achieve results in about nine to 12 months.

Want a More Uniformed Smile?

When there are multiple issues going on with your smile – we offer porcelain veneers. These customized shells are manufactured to blend with the natural aesthetics of your smile and cover teeth that are crooked, severely stained, gapped, or disproportionate. With porcelain veneers, you can achieve a brighter, straighter, and more uniformed smile in just two office visits.
