For patients with stained, chipped, cracked, injured, or misaligned teeth, our office offers the option of natural-looking porcelain veneers. In as little as two visits, we will customize your porcelain veneers so that they perfectly match the size, shape, and color of your surrounding natural teeth. Strong, durable, and highly resistant to staining, porcelain veneers are bonded to the fronts of your teeth, effectively concealing imperfections and restoring beauty to your smile.
Now there is an alternative to traditional metal braces to create your beautiful smile. Invisalign is a series of clear, removable, plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. You wear each pair of aligners for a two-week period, allowing your teeth to gradually evolve into a smile that shows off the real you. Treatment length varies, depending on your dental condition and the severity of your case. But often, a full program of treatment takes less than one year.
Bonding is a form of smile sculpture accomplished with a composite resin which enables patients with imperfections in their teeth to have more attractive smiles. Bonding can be used to close spaces, change the color of the teeth, mask any discolorations, repair chips, alter the size or shape of teeth, and give jumbled or crooked teeth a straight-looking appearance. Bonding is an affordable alternative to veneers.
Dental implants have revolutionized how we replace missing teeth. In the past, we replaced teeth with bridges or dentures. But implants are like replacement roots that integrate with the bone to provide a stable platform for a new tooth.
Small cavities can be filled with tooth-colored resin fillings. Only one visit will result in a beautiful bonded restoration.
Amalgam (Mercury) Filling Removal
We take extra precautions to protect our patients from any potential exposures during the removal of amalgam fillings. We follow guidelines set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.
