Permanent Implant Supported Dentures

Ask about our free consultation!

For patients with severe tooth loss, we recommend implant dentures. Four or more implants hold the custom-designed denture in place. Resting firmly against the entire gum-line, these dentures provide an unparalleled fit and look. Patients will often experience a boost in confidence after they get their implant dentures, and feel and look young again! For patients who are not candidates for implants, beautiful cosmetic conventional dentures are also a great option.

Limited Time Offer! Free Consultation Now Available.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Implants

Replace missing teeth beautifully

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures. Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth.

Sedation Dentistry

Sleep through your dental visit!

Sedation dentistry is an excellent treatment for patients with extensive dental needs, or who are concerned about anxiety, difficulty getting numb, or sensitive teeth.

BOTOX® & Dermal Fillers

Look years younger

Reduce the signs of aging with our age-defying treatments. Botox® uses an injection to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Dermal fillers implement a gel filler that reduces wrinkles around your mouth and nose for natural-looking results. Call us for a free consultation.

Porcelain Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding Learn More

Composite bonding resin is a white, tooth colored material that can be shaded to match your teeth. This material can give you a low-cost improvement in your smile.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns & Bridges Learn More

Protect and keep your teeth that are badly decayed or fractured with natural-looking crowns. Made to match the shade of your teeth, they're strong, durable and virtually undetectable.

It is best to have a crown placed before the tooth is so damaged that it may fracture. This can help prevent the expense of root canal therapy or loss of tooth in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative. A bridge helps prevent the loss of the adjacent teeth, improves function and enhances your appearance.


Invisalign® Learn More

These “invisible” aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile no longer need to come from am mouth of unattractive wire and bracket braces. Enhanced self-esteem and physical confidence, invisible braces offer an esthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional braces.

Propel® can be combined with Invisalign® to reduce wear time in the aligners by approximately half the time. Propel is a micro-stimulation of the bone between the teeth to increase a ”softening“ effect which allows the teeth to move more easily. Get the smile you've always wanted with Invisalign® Orthodontics.

Cancer Screening

Cancer Screening Learn More

The prevalence of oral cancer is increasing and has been linked to the papilloma virus, alcohol consumption, smoking and smokeless tobacco. Cancer can also be secondary to repeated trauma to the oral mucosa as seen with ill-fitting appliances. We take this very seriously and screen all patients for oral cancers. Visual exams along with screening tools such as ID 3000 can help us detect suspicious areas in the primary stages. Our ultimate goal is prevention, protection and early detection and treatment of this disease.

Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening Learn More

Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve. Bleaching has been completed safely by professionals for many years and may be achieved in several ways.

KöR® Deep Bleach is a revolutionary whitening procedure that combines take home trays with an in-office treatment for the most significant whitening we can offer. KöR is our most popular option and is especially helpful for darker teeth or for those seeking a more intense change.

For enhanced whitening and maintenance, plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth for our take home option. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the tray in your mouth for several hours per day. A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.

We offer a program called “Whitening for Life” for all patients who have purchased one of our whitening procedures and who remain active in our recare program. Patients will be given one tube of whitening solution per year at no cost. Maintenance and upkeep of the trays are the responsibility of the patient.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers Learn More

Veneers are very thin porcelain facings that are custom made to directly adhere to the front of the teeth. Veneers may require very little to no preparation in order to transform your smile. We can work with you to achieve changes in color, shape, length and texture while maintaining the integrity of your existing teeth.

In the hands of our highly skilled dentists, porcelain laminates can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ Treatment Learn More

Our doctors have studied extensively in the management and treatment of joint disorders. Whether your treatment requires appliance therapy and bite management, orthodontic referral or full mouth reconstruction, we can address your concerns. We utilize digital bite scans, Doppler, and models of your teeth along with a comprehensive exam to determine the appropriate course of treatment for you. Botox® and trigger point injections may also be recommended for treatment of pain.

Root Canals

Root Canals Learn More

Root canal therapy is an excellent way to save a tooth that would otherwise die and need to be removed. All teeth that have had root canal therapy must be protected with a crown. This is because teeth that have had the pulp removed are more susceptible to fracture.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal Therapy Learn More

Our office has the team to assist you in the prevention and progression of gum disease. We utilize the latest techniques for routine maintenance and complex treatment of gum problems. Whether your treatment requires deep cleanings, local antibiotic placement or laser treatment, we are prepared to customize a program that will assist you with your dental needs. We also partner with a specialist in our area for the most comprehensive approach possible.

Pinhole Technique

Pinhole Technique Learn More

For a more conservative approach to gum recession and grafting we offer the pinhole technique. This procedure effectively covers the exposed root surface without the need for sutures or extensive surgery. Pinhole can be utilized to correct a single gum defect or may be utilized for multiple areas. Our team will evaluate your gums on a routine basis and will advise you if recession is a concern in your mouth and what options may be available to you.

Snoring, Tooth Grinding, & Sleep Apnea

Snoring, Tooth Grinding, & Sleep Apnea Learn More

We offer appliances for snoring, bruxism (teeth grinding) and sleep apnea. We will do a thorough evaluation and correspond with your medical doctors to determine the most appropriate course of treatment for you. We offer an at-home sleep test that is more cost effective and comfortable than hospital sleep tests. Our goal is to help with the recognition, diagnosis and treatment of this very serious and prevalent condition.
