Whitening

Whitening

Zoom! Whitening is our #1 suggestion for cosmetic dentistry. It is a safe, effective, and affordable way to brighten and enhance your smile. This professional whitening system is far superior to any over-the-counter system available. Ask to see our before and after pictures!!!

Implants

Implants

Dental implants are currently the best way to replace missing teeth. They replace teeth in a way that looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth. For patients with loose and ill-fitting dentures they can be life changing!

Bonding

Bonding

Bonding is a procedure using filling materials that are tooth colored. This procedure can be used to replace those ugly dark silvery colored fillings or even to fill in spaces in the front teeth.

Cleanings

Cleanings

For our patients we recommend a cleaning (or prophylaxis) at least once every 6 months. We like to say, “There’s a body attached to those teeth...” and science has proven many times that poor oral hygiene can contribute to specific systemic conditions! Regular cleanings may literally improve your overall health!

Crowns & Veneers

Crowns & Veneers

Crowns and veneers can be used to both strengthen natural teeth and enhance your smiles. Crowns are often used to replace large fillings that continually wear or break and restore your teeth to their natural form and function. This will allow proper brushing and flossing and increase longevity of teeth!

From the Blog

X-Rays: Yes or No?

While we share your concerns about potential risks from too much exposure to radiation, x-rays [radiographs] are a necessary part of the dental health process.

Our philosophy is that x-rays should not be routine but utilized when they will contribute to diagnosis or treatment of oral disease. Of course, we will cover you with appropriate body shielding prior to taking any x-rays.

You Don’t Need a PhD to Balance your pH

The human body is largely made up of water equaling 50-60% of our total body weight. The water is significant in that it provides the medium for transferring nutrients, oxygen and biochemicals from place to place, thus having a profound effect on body chemistry, health and/or disease.
