Teeth Cleaning - Good oral hygiene starts with regular dental cleanings. Regular teeth cleaning helps remove plaque and tartar build-up, which contribute to periodontal disease. We recommend all patients schedule this 45-minute appointment twice each year.

Fillings - As a metal- free office, we provide restoration of tooth structure with tooth color composite resin materials. We will take care of you and your family's cavities by using the most current technology available for fillings.
Teeth Whitening - Teeth Whitening is an easy and affordable process that can eliminate stains and discoloration to restore a beautiful smile. We offer 1- hour in house teeth whitening.
Digital Dental X-Rays - Dental x-rays are essential diagnostic tools that provide valuable information to help us evaluate your oral health. We can look at what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums to identify any potential problems and create an individualized dental treatment plan. By using digital x-rays, you are exposed to less radiation, and digital x-rays have no process time which makes for a shorter visit.
Crowns - A crown is a cap that is designed to be placed over a tooth to restore its strength and improve its appearance. A crown may be needed for traumatic fractures, wear due to teeth grinding, tooth decay, cracked fillings and root canals. We provide Zirconia crowns, which are metal-free, gum friendly, and durable.
Dental Bridges - If you have a missing tooth, a dental bridge can fill the gap in your smile. Bridges resemble natural teeth, and are designed to take the place of areas where teeth are missing.
Extractions - When a tooth is beyond repair, tooth extraction helps to sustain and preserve the health of your gums and bone. A failed tooth can be caused by an unsuccessful root canal, periodontal disease, or extensive tooth decay, in which case an extraction can bring relief.
Porcelain Veneers - Porcelain veneers or dental laminates are thin custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers are routinely used to fix:
• Teeth that are discolored either because of stains from tetracycline or other drugs or excessive fluoride
• Teeth that are worn down
• Teeth that are chipped or broken
• Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)
• Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth).
Dentures - A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate."
A conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about 8 to12 weeks after the teeth have been removed. Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. Immediate dentures should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored acrylic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position.
Nightguard - A nightguard or mouthguard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth and gums. A mouthguard is most often used to prevent injury in contact sports or as a treatment for grinding teeth or bruxism and TMD.
