The services we offer

By far, the most popular cosmetic dentistry service is professional teeth whitening. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) says that most Americans desire a bright, white smile--one that gets noticed and admired. Teeth whitening is available in an in-office or take-home version, and it safely removes stains from drinks, foods, smoking at more.

Another popular treatment is porcelain veneers. Also known as dental laminates, these thin wafers of ceramic cover the front of teeth flawed by chips, pits, gaps, craze lines, and more. Veneers are permanent and also make tooth enamel more durable.

Porcelain crowns fully cover decayed or otherwise damaged teeth. Jackets of quality ceramic crowns provide protection and realistic shape and color. Partial crowns, or inlays and inlays, restore the chewing surface of selected teeth.

Another service, composite resin bonding, remakes teeth marred by chips, cracks, and gaps. Composite resin blends glass and acrylic for a lifelike enamel surface. It also restores tooth decay.

Finally, dental implants replace missing teeth. A titanium screw resides in the jaw bone, serving as a tooth root and anchoring a post and crown. Implants are as secure as real teeth because of osseointegration. They also anchor bridges and dentures to take care of more extensive tooth loss.
