Real words from real patients

Dental Services

We provide the full-range of general dental services for patients of all ages.

Cleanings, Exams, and X-Rays

Many dental issues are preventable, so periodic exams and x-rays help to keep small problems from becoming big ones. We use digital x-rays because they are quicker and healthier. Even our cleanings are high-tech. We use modern ultrasonics to 'power-wash' your teeth quickly and comfortably. Everyone's mouth is different, and we cater our treatments to your particular needs.

Fillings, Crowns, and Implants

There have been huge developments in dental materials in the past decade, and our doctors have experience with the latest techniques and supplies. We only place white fillings, using the latest in adhesives and composites. We use the safest materials, minimizing the exposure to heavy metals, strong acids, and BPA.

Additionally, the need for metal permanent crowns has been essentially eliminated with the developement of Lithium Disilicate and Monolithic Zirconia crowns. These look extremely natural, adhere to roots strongly, and can be made while you wait!.

Need to replace a tooth or are your dentures too loose? Dental implants are safe, reliable, and long-lasting. The new materials described above can also be used to restore implants.

Invisalign, Teeth Whitening, and Veneers

Our doctors have over a decade of experience with Invisalign. It is a comfortable and relatively quick method of restoring esthetics, function, and health to your teeth and gums. We are an Invisalign Preferred Provider, and will give you a realistic assessment of your smile and present the orthodontic options available.

Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to improve the esthetics of your smile. You'll be suprised how inexpensive it can be too.

Porcelain veneers today are strong, extremely beautiful, and minimally invasive. We only use the best laboratories and materials, and will give you a simulation of your smile before any treatment. Give us a call and see how we can improve your smile!

Pediatric Dentistry

Kids often require unique treatments for oral care. We are well equipped to treat your children with the safest, most modern methods of dentistry. Our digital x-ray system is the smallest and fastest on the market. We pride ourselves on our minimal waiting times. And we are flexible with our scheduling; we can often treat your whole family at the same appointment.

Night Guards and Snoring

Everyone grinds or clenches their teeth at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, many people are doing damage to their teeth and jaws without realizing it. Our doctors are experts in the symptoms and treatments for bruxism. We fabricate many guards in-office, ensuring you get comfortable as soon as possible.

Many people snore at night. Yes, it is annoying to others, but it can also be a sign of more serious problems, such as sleep apnia. We can work with you to get help and, if necessary, assist in the fabrication of oral appliances to treat snoring and apnia.

Emergency Services

Toothache or injury? Give us a call, even after hours, and we should be able to see you or direct you to care as soon as possible.
