Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile is one of the first things people see when they encounter you face to face, so you want to look your best. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on dental work to improve the appearance of the teeth, gums, and/or the bite.

Aesthetics include the shape, size, color, and alignment of the smile appearance.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is the artificial root of a tooth that is permanently anchored to the jawbone; it provides strength and longevity and is the ideal solution for replacing failing or missing teeth.

Unlike dentures, implants do not move or slip, providing patients with the security of a smile that is natural and comfortable.

Abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws is common. Such irregularities can be corrected through orthodontic treatment, including application of braces.

The goal of orthodontics is to diagnose, prevent, or correct these conditions.

Children’s Dentistry

A pediatric dentist cares for the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. During this time, children have two sets of teeth. Baby teeth come in at approximately six months and by the time children are six or seven, they lose these teeth, and a secondary set of permanent teeth appear.

Proper attention to dental care during this time can eliminate possible oral decay and disease.

Gum disease is common in the American population; almost half over the age of 30 have gum disease and at age 65 and older 70% are likely to have gum disease. The odds are not in your favor.

If you do not have it, we can help you prevent it, and if you do have it, we can help you manage it. We offer non-surgical treatments.

Tooth Whitening

As teeth age, they yellow. Many begin the process of whitening teeth by purchasing toothpaste containing a whitener. However, if whitening your yellowing teeth is a consideration, why not have a dental professional diagnose the type, intensity, and location of the discoloration problem and provide a proper, safe treatment?
