Below is a partial list of several of the services that we offer to our patients.
Starting with a good dental foundation of healthy teeth and gums, we can improve your smile in many ways. Some of these techniques include:porcelain veneers and crowns, whitening, Invisalign orthodontics and other state-of the art treatments. Schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored porcelain designed to cover the front side of teeth
Veneers can easily correct gaps in your teeth or cover teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature's mistake or the results of an injury and help you obtain a beautiful smile.
Typically veneers are crafted by a dental technician, working from a model of the patients teeth provided by your dentist.
Veneers are an irreversible process because it's necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the Veneer shell.
We have been placing porcelain veneers for 25 years, and almost all are still in place.
The next best thing apart from your natural teeth. Implants are permanently anchored to your jaw allowing you to have teeth which feel as natural as possible. Implants can replace ill-fitting dentures and or missing teeth.
Dental implants are a source of artificial teeth that look natural and feel secure. Dental implants can also be used to attach a full or partial dentures. In some cases the implant "anchor" can be placed at the same time a broken down tooth is removed.
These dramatic photos illustrate what can be done using implants. This woman works in auto sales. Her upper teeth all required removal due to infection and neglect. Six implants were placed at the time of extraction. We then fabricated a complete set of upper teeth on an acrylic rim(no palatal coverage). "Locator" attachments were used to provide a positive grip between the teeth and the upper arch. In fact the patient must exert considerable force to remove the teeth from her mouth.
What is involved in placing implants?
A procedure is performed to place an anchor. About three months can be required for the bone to grow around the anchor to firmly hold it in place.
After this time period, the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. This step usually takes two appointments and are one week apart.
Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or several teeth, or a complete set of teeth.
The series of photos below illustrate the replacement of a upper first molar completed at our office.
Step 1: Illustrates the implant in the upper jaw on x-ray. In this case the broken down molar was removed and the implant placed at the same appointment.
Step 2: Three months later, this is a photo of the "healing collar" which covers the implant and is attached to it by a screw. The collar is removed and an impression is taken.
Step 3: One week later, the gold base is attached to the implant with a titanium screw and at the same appointment..
Step 4: The final crown is cemented over the post. The patient now has a very strong tooth. 95% are still retained after 20 years.

Invisalign is a new way of treating spacing, crowding, and other orthodontic conditions. Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crowded, crooked or spaced too far apart. Properly aligned teeth can help gums "fit" more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal health.
This young man had his teeth aligned in less than one year of easy treatment with Invisalign. He is thrilled with the result.
Invisalign treatment gradually moves your teeth with a series of custom-made, removable, nearly invisible aligners. Invisalign is demonstrated to be effective in straightening teeth in dental practices worldwide. Over 1.5 million people are smiling more thanks to Invisalign.
At the first appointment, impressions, photos, and other records are taken. Six weeks later, the patient returns and the first "aligners" are inserted. These are clear "plastic" trays" that slide over the teeth. The patient will wear a new set every two weeks until the teeth are gently moved into a more ideal arrangement. Treatment is almost always completed in less than one year.
A Clear Alternative
Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes.
Invisible. Removable. And Comfortable.
Invisalign is comfortable to wear and it doesn’t require you to change your busy lifestyle. You visit your doctor every month or two to check your progression and get new aligners. Average treatment time is only about a year. Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods while brushing and flossing normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
