Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. No more need to deal with uncomfortable dentures or bridges—with permanent dental implants, a person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat and smile with effortless confidence. The teeth look and feel completely natural.
Dental implants can support replacements for one tooth, several teeth, or even all of the teeth. Dental implants allow outstanding results in both appearance and function of the new teeth.
The implants themselves are titanium cylinders which are surgically implanted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant. Protruding through the gums, these posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Invisalign can eliminate crowding or large spaces between your teeth. Even complex cases such as overbites, underbites and crossbites can be treated.
Typically, Invisalign cases take about a year from start to finish. You will see your dentist every 6-8 weeks to review your progress. You will receive additional aligners every few visits. Treatment time and the number of aligners you receive will vary case by case.
How do I begin?
- Make an appointment with your dentist. During your visit you can decide on your course of treatment. Impressions of your bite will be made and sent to Invisalign for processing.
- Your aligners will be made using advanced 3-D computer imaging. Your bite impressions are used to construct a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners.
- You will receive your aligners.
- You will wear your aligners day and night, according to your dentist’s instructions. They will only be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss.
Does Invisalign work?
Yes, Invisalign has been shown effective at straightening teeth.
Is Invisalign covered by insurance?
If you have dental insurance that covers orthodontic treatment, Invisalign should qualify. Call your insurance company before you begin treatment.

Porcelain and composite veneers are effective aesthetic “cover-ups” for damaged or stained teeth. Although some veneers are designed to be removable, most are permanent and are bonded very tightly to the tooth they are protecting. The advancements in technology have improved bonding agents to the point where it is quite common for veneers to stay active for twenty years or more.
The main advantages of porcelain veneers are that they are extremely natural looking and are resistant to future staining. In fact, porcelain veneers are custom-made in a dental laboratory to look exactly like the patient’s teeth. Additionally, there is no tooth reduction needed in the manner of composite resin, which takes up considerably more bulk and volume once applied.
Composite veneers are much faster and more efficient than porcelain veneers. They can be set and fixed within one visit (porcelain requires a minimum of two visits) and cost significantly less money. In fact, the composite resin used will expand and contract with natural fluctuations in tooth size, which, combined with the additional volume the resin takes up, makes it the perfect choice for repairing fractured teeth.

Whitening - Zoom!®
The ZOOM! chairside whitening system is a safe, effective and fast way to brighten your teeth in a single office visit. The ZOOM! procedure is much more convenient than wearing trays or strips, making it a great choice for our busy patients.
ZOOM! is done in the office during one visit lasting 1-2 hours. At your appointment we apply a gentle, hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel to your teeth. The gel is then exposed to a high-intensity light. After the treatment, your teeth will be up to 6-10 shades whiter.
Dentist-supervised whitening is one of the safest and most conservative cosmetic dental treatments available. The most common side effect is an increased tooth sensitivity to cold for 1-3 days after treatment.
