Take Home Whitening

Customized trays are made in office and can be ready within the same day. When taken home, along with a whitening gel kit, the trays are filled with a layer of whitening gel and worn in the mouth for as little as ½ hour per day. In about one week, depending on your needs, this process can erase most staining from coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco. Tooth discoloration associated naturally with aging is also diminished, producing a brilliant, bright white smile. 

ZOOM! Whitening

The ZOOM! chairside whitening system is a scientifically advanced, patent pending, tooth whitening procedure. It is safe, effective and fast, very fast! In just two hours your teeth will become dramatically shades lighter. ZOOM! chairside whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of ZOOM! in comparison to days of wearing trays or strips, makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.

Bonding

Are your teeth chipped, discolored, gapped, or uneven? Bonding with composite resin (customized tooth-colored material) can make a huge difference in your smile in no time at all! The composite resin is applied directly to the enamel of your teeth and shaped into place, allowing your once broken, chipped, or gapped smile to be made whole again.

Porcelain Veneers

Are your teeth worn down, stained, or out of proportion in relation to your smile or bite? Customized, ultra-thin veneers are cemented directly to the front of your tooth, leaving a natural finish that hides any aesthetic issues.

Fillings

Tooth decay ultimately will lead to the development of cavities. Fillings are used to seal spaces in the teeth’s surfaces where bacteria can enter and also prevent further decay. During the process of a filling, the tooth decay is removed and then replaced with amalgam (silver) or composite resin (white). Composite fillings have become increasingly popular as the white material can be perfectly blended into the natural color of your teeth and smile.

Porcelain Crowns

Are your teeth cracked, seriously decayed, or structurally weakened? Porcelain crowns can preserve the cosmetic appearance of your teeth by covering the entire visible area of the tooth and protecting its integrity. After removing all areas of decay, an impression is taken to create a custom crown made of porcelain. Porcelain crowns are extremely strong and natural looking, and are the ideal choice for visible teeth. 

Porcelain Fixed Bridges

Patients who are a missing a tooth or several teeth likely have trouble speaking and chewing, not to mention the undesirable cosmetic appearance it leaves. Missing teeth can also lead to jaw and joint issues, which will eventually lead to costly treatments. Porcelain fixed bridges can improve the overall appearance of your teeth while improving your ability to speak and chew. Bridges replace gaps in the smile with artificial teeth. An impression is taken of the area to prepare a customized bridge. Once the bridge is secured into place, the artificial tooth is cemented to the neighboring teeth, thus restoring the natural appearance and functionality of tooth or teeth that were missing.

Root Canal Therapy

The interior of each tooth is composed of pulp, a material containing nerves and blood vessels. If bacteria is able to reach the interior of the tooth and access the pulp chamber, it may become infected, causing pain and sensitivity. This puts the tooth at a high risk of infection that can spread to other areas of the body. Therefore, a root canal is necessary to save the natural tooth and prevent further infection. 
Root canal therapy involves your dentist removing the compromised pulp and replacing it with a rubber sealant. A post is then placed in the tooth to regain its functionality. Next, a crown is secured on the tooth to protect, strengthen and reinforce against future fractures. The crown is customized to the tooth’s natural appearance so it blends in with the rest of your smile. Root canal therapy has a very high success rate in saving teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted in result of an infection gone untreated.
