Oral Appearance

Teeth aren’t the only aspect to consider when creating your beautiful smile. The ratio of teeth and gums visible when you smile can influence your appearance. Too much visible soft tissue gives the appearance of a 'gummy' smile and is easily corrected with laser gingival recontouring. Using lasers instead of traditional scalpels provides for less discomfort, quicker healing and more predictable results. This is a very conservative treatment approach and is often all that is needed in order to avoid destroying healthy tooth structure with conventional crowns. Should you need restorations, you’ll be glad to know that we are a metal-free office. All of our fillings, crowns and bridges are constructed from state–of–the–art composites and ceramics, generated through digital CAD/CAM technology for that perfect look and fit. No more ugly gray lines, discolored tissue or dark, empty triangles between your teeth!

Cosmetic Maintenance

We make maintaining your smile easy with our “Whitening for Life” program. For a small one-time investment we’ll provide you with the best, most up-to-date teeth whitening systems so you can maintain your white teeth at home in between your dental visits for as long as you’re a patient with us. Of course we also offer other convenient take-home and in-office teeth whitening products, so you have numerous choices by which to keep that smile of yours looking its best! White teeth are the finishing touch to a perfect smile, so we want to complete your look with overall oral care whether that is in the dentist office or at home.

Orthodontic Services

The good news is that for most people, orthodontics is all that is needed in order to achieve the smile of your dreams. We offer many orthodontic options, from traditional braces to invisible Invisalign trays that no one will know you’re wearing.

What does Cosmetic Dentistry include?

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers help to repair broken or cracked teeth, even out mismatch tooth sizes, and correct gaps between teeth. Veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth and are a long-lasting solution.

Dental Bonding

Similar to veneers, dental bonding helps repair decayed, chipped or cracked teeth, and can also close gaps and change the shape of your teeth. It is typically a faster procedure than veneers.

Teeth Bleaching & Whitening

Professional teeth whitening can get your teeth brighter faster than at-home products. You can see dramatic results in just one visit to your dentist.

Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is an innovative form of dental care which is a minimally-invasive option for gum surgery. Laser dentistry can help adjust "gummy" smiles where too much of the gums show when you smile and can also treat gum disease and other gum-related conditions.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Do you have silver amalgam fillings? Tooth-colored fillings can be used for new cavities. They can replace old fillings to match the color of your tooth for a natural look.
