Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth colored fillings are made from a material called composite resin that are similar in color and texture to your natural teeth, so they are much less noticeable than other types of fillings.  The filling, which is color customized to match your real tooth, looks and feels completely natural.  

You will be able to talk, eat and drink just as you normally would, and no one will ever notice! Tooth colored fillings are also compatible with dental sealants, so your tooth can be filled and sealed at the same time to prevent any further complications.

Teeth Whitening

Our teeth are protected by enamel that helps ward off the effects of chewing and exposure to acid and sugars found in many drinks and foods. Over time, however, the enamel can weaken, causing tooth discoloration and a dull appearance.  Tooth whitening procedures, both in-office and at home, can make your teeth brighter and whiter.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a great alternative to metal braces so you don't have to sacrifice your smile while realigning your teeth!

You now can straighten your teeth without metal, braces or wires! Invisalign trays are also clear so no one will even know you're wearing them (unless you tell them)!

Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a covering used for a tooth that is misshapen, chipped, discolored or has a large filling that needs support.  Crowns may also be used to restore a weak tooth or for cosmetic reasons.  Bridges are a series of crowns that enable a missing tooth to be replaced without the need for a removable device such as a partial denture.  Both crowns and bridges produce a beautifully natural and durable result.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are custom-made in order to straighten, whiten or otherwise perfect a smile. Veneers are a fabulous option to create a "movie star" smile. If you have spaces or gaps, broken or chipped teeth, stained or discolored teeth, or even crooked teeth, veneers may be the perfect option for you.

Night Guards

Many people grind their teeth, whether they are aware they are doing it or not. This can cause a number of problems, including jaw pain, headaches and tense muscles.

Teeth grinding can also hurt your teeth by wearing down the surface and enamel, leaving you vulnerable to cavities and other irritations.
