A procedure that whitens teeth which reverses the effects of aging, tobacco stains, food & drink stains, and stains from medication use. Impressions are taken to create a mold from which we make a custom fit tray to achieve optimal results. Or we now offer Sinsational Smile – – a 20-minute, in-office procedure followed by a 2-week take home kit of $99 with a cleaning.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person’s smile.

Crowns, Natural looking tooth colored restoration
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth – covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. For more information, visit Dental Crowns at WebMD.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns or more for the teeth on either side of the gap – the anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth – and a false tooth/teeth in between. These replacement teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. For more information, visit Dental Bridges at WebMD.

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. We make a crown that is placed over the implant.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Dentures can have clasps made of metal or natural looking “gum” colored.

Laser Use in Dentistry
Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1994 to treat a number of dental problems. Our laser is used to treat gum disease, biopsy or tissue or lesion removal.

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form. After treatment, we restore root canal treated teeth with posts, buildups and crowns.

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Used to close spaces between teeth, tetracycline stained teeth, chipped or crowned teeth.

A panorex is an x–ray that provides a full view of the upper and lower jaws, teeth, temporomandibular joints (TMJs) and sinuses. Without this critical piece of data, we can sometimes miss pathologic lesion, such as tumors or cysts and extra teeth.
The intraoral camera is a revolutionary diagnostic dental tool that allows us to better identify potential problems within the mouth early on. The tiny intraoral camera can be inserted into a patient’s mouth, taking pictures of the teeth and displaying the images on a computer screen. Using the intraoral camera makes problems easily visible to both patient and doctor.
