Your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on people you meet. A brighter smile gives the impression of youth, vitality, radiant health, happiness, and warmth. A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile. As we age, our adult teeth often become darker, yellower, or stained. This is partly why white teeth make people appear more youthful. Teeth discoloration occurs for a variety of reasons including age, diet and bacteria. Luckily, teeth whitening is a quick fix for discoloration. Our staff will determine the most effective way to whiten your teeth. We offer Philips Zoom Whitening system, an immediate solution for teeth whitening. Our doctors will also whiten with whitening trays that will allow you to whiten inexpensively and at home.

Porcelain veneers dramatically improve the appearance of teeth with thin, custom-made porcelain "laminates" bonded over the fronts of unsightly teeth. With Traditional Porcelain Veneers, just a little enamel is removed so the veneers don't feel bulky, or with Prepless Porcelain Veneers, the porcelain is bonded on without any enamel being removed. Once this incredibly natural restoration is bonded on it is very strong. Porcelain veneers are the most popular option for Smile Makeovers partly due to the ceramist at the dental laboratory taking much of the responsibility for the beauty of the final results. The dentist shapes the teeth, the ceramist fabricates the porcelain laminates, then the dentist bonds them onto the teeth-a team effort!
Problems solved by veneers: Porcelain veneers can provide more dramatic changes for unsightly teeth and are a good choice for Smile Makeovers. This technique is popular because it creates so much improvement with so little tooth reduction.
Often referred to us as “Gum Lift” Excessive or uneven gums can be corrected with a gum lift, which is an easier way to describe periodontal plastic surgery. Some situations may require a specialist to accomplish this, but many cases can be accomplished at the same appointment as the cosmetic or restorative treatment. An instrument that works similar to a laser is used, so it's very predictable and healing is quick and easy.

Sometimes, we need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant.
This is the procedure performed when the pulp inside the root canal(s) of your tooth is infected or injured. It consists in carefully opening your tooth or crown at the top, removing the diseased pulp, thoroughly cleaning, conservatively shaping and tightly sealing the root canal(s). Should you need afterwards a crown or filling done, we highly recommend that you do so in the fastest manner to ensure that the bacteria will not re-infect your tooth.
