Dental implants are a leading dental treatment for patients who have lost teeth or have had to have them removed because of decay, infection or damage. Implants can last a lifetime and are surgically placed in the gums of patients using state-of-the-art techniques and devices.
The success rates of dental implants are very high, and we are committed to our patients, ensuring they are 100% satisfied with the end result. We work hard to make a seamless match between your existing teeth and your new implant. Implants are also great for people who wear dentures and want a more permanent solution.
The purpose of restorative dentistry is to bring your smile back to life with treatments and procedures designed to help strengthen the look and form of your teeth. When you don’t have a full set of teeth, or if you have broken teeth, you may experience other problems, such as misaligned bite or pain in your jaw. Restorative dentistry can correct those problems or prevent them from ever happening by replacing and repairing teeth that have become damaged over time or by accident or injury.
We are a full-service dental office that provides care for the whole family. Children should begin seeing the dentist when their primary teeth start to come in. If you are unsure of when your child should visit our dental office, please feel free to give us a call and we’ll provide you with information about children’s dentistry.

Other services we provide include:
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or on teeth that are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. They provide an instant facelift to your teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material such as porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Your smile is one of the first things a person will notice when you meet them. If you have stained, dull or discolored teeth, teeth whitening may be a great option for you. Even healthy teeth discolor over time. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well. Your teeth and gums must be healthy enough for whitening. Before recommending whitening, we will carefully evaluate your smile.
Our professionally supervised whitening is more effective and safer than over the counter whitening products. Our high concentration whitening gels are only available through dental office distribution. Also, be aware that it can be dangerous to have whitening attempted by untrained personnel outside of the dental office such as shopping malls. If you have questions about which whitening method would be best for you please talk to us first.
Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to brighten your smile. You can look younger and feel more confident with a whiter smile.
Invisalign’s invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you’re wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers who want or need straighter teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Don’t let the fear of root canal therapy stop you from saving your teeth. We provide our patients with comfort measures to ensure they experience no pain and that they have the best chance of saving their tooth from further damage or infection.
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. If you have chronic tooth pain, don’t delay in reaching out to our dental office for an appointment. Something more serious may be going on and we can provide you with treatments to save your teeth.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. A Lifetime Treatment Plan will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage that could cost time and money. If you experience a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to contact our office for an appointment as soon as possible. The sooner we can correct the damage, the better the chances of saving the tooth. Our priority is to save the tooth, or teeth, whenever possible. We’ll work with you to ensure that you keep your tooth, or provide an alternative solution that keeps your teeth healthy.
