The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to give you a fabulous smile! This is done by analyzing every aspect of your smile, then correcting any problems.
Have you ever been taken with a smile? There is no question that healthy, attractive teeth are one of our strongest personal assets. No matter what dental problems you have developed over the years modern dentistry has solutions for you. Helping people to smile and express themselves with confidence is one of the main reasons our doctors have enjoyed the dental field for so many years. Our doctors are easy to talk with, and are very devoted to their patients special needs and concerns. Some of the cosmetic options they might recommend include: teeth whitening, bonding, porcelain veneers, crowns, “white” tooth colored fillings, bridgework and implants.

- Porcelain Crowns
- Porcelain Bridges
- Take-Home Whitening
- In-Office Whitening
- White Filling Bonding (Mercury-Free Filling)
Unlike bridges, dental implants need no supporting adjacent teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth implanted into the jaw bone. It is generally made of titanium and covered with a porcelain crown or a bridge to give the appearance of real teeth. Implants are very durable and will last many years. Dental implants can restore almost any smile even if natural teeth have been lost.
The success rate for implants is remarkable: 98 percent for lower implants and 91 percent for upper implants. Many people who consider implants have removable, conventional dentures for lower and upper jaws, or have removable bridges. These people experience a significant improvement in their ability to chew food comfortably after their dental implant treatment.
Safety & Sterilization
You may be assured that our office adheres to strict guidelines of cleanliness and sterilization. We are very serious about our responsibility to protect your personal safety. We utilize the best infection control procedures and equipment. Our clinical staff wears masks and gloves, and each treatment room and all instruments and hand pieces are thoroughly disinfected between patients. Our patients often remark that our clinical facility is very clean, bright and sanitary.
Intra-Oral Cameras: Technology has advanced to the point that we can put a video camera the size of a dental instrument in the patients mouth and capture images of your teeth. This allows us to diagnose problem areas and view them at 25-50 times magnification. This is very helpful in identifying cracked teeth and broken fillings.
Digital radiography is one of the newest technologies in the dental office. A small sensor is placed in the patient’s mouth and instantly, with up to 90% less radiation, the x-ray is taken. We are then able to view the x-ray in 3D, zoom, colorized mode, measure bone density and much more. This gives us many more tools to diagnose problem areas in a faster, safer manner. An added benefit to the patient is a much greater ability to visualize what once only the Doctor could see.
