Invisalign is a breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets or wires. By using clear removable aligners, it straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Invisalign technology treats the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or something more extreme, Invisalign can help. It is successful at treating crowding, excess spacing of teeth or even overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
In order to insure success in our procedures, we take the necessary time to fully and thoroughly evaluate your present dental condition. We use the appropriate diagnostic tools such as X-rays, models, photographs, visual examination, full periodontal exam, cancer screening, and esthetic evaluations. Our goal is to give our patients the necessary information and education so that they may enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for many years to come.
We believe a good foundation is the key to optimal oral health, therefore, our periodontal care is of utmost priority. We customize cleanings to properly care for your specific periodontal (gums & bone) needs. Whether a six month checkup or full periodontal therapy, our hygienists will always strive to provide the very best treatment while maintaining your absolute comfort.
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the most natural-looking and aesthetic way to replace them. Tooth loss can be the result of tooth decay, gum disease, trauma, periodontal disease, or congenital defects. Missing teeth can cause low self-esteem, eating problems, speech problems, and further tooth damage. Tooth loss can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift around, creating an unbalanced bite that may lead to problems like jawbone loss, TMJ disorder, and headaches.Dental implants are a permanent solution that will look and function like your natural teeth. Strong and durable materials are used to create a result that enhances your smile, health, and confidence.
Modern dentistry has allowed us the pleasure of combining beauty as well as strength when filling teeth. We take pride in “restoring” teeth to as close to their original strength and appearance with composite resins and ceramics. Since patient comfort is top priority, our clinical staff and doctor go the extra mile to make coming to the dentist a whole new positive experience.
Crowns are used to restore both anterior and posterior teeth that have been broken or are at high risk of doing so due to over-sized old fillings or fractures.

The teeth on either side of the existing space are used to anchor the bridge to restore functionality as well as esthetics. We are now able to construct beautiful porcelain over metal as well as full porcelain and resin-based bridges to produce the best results for each particular situation.
