Composite fillings
  • We offer composite resin fillings (also known as mercury-free fillings, white fillings, or tooth-colored fillings) Composite resin fillings provide strength and are more esthetically pleasing than mercury fillings. Although mercury has not been proven to be a health risk, mercury filling expansion and stress can often lead to tooth fracture. Non-metallic restorations can minimize this.

Crowns and Bridges
  • A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. A bridge is one way to replace a missing tooth by connecting the replacement tooth to the adjacent teeth; this can also be done with a dental implant. Crowns and bridges can be made from all porcelain (tooth colored), full cast gold, or porcelain fused to gold (gold structure with porcelain as the outer structure).

Before Crowns

After Crowns

  • Immediate Dentures (where the remaining teeth are removed and a newly constructed denture is placed at the tooth removal appointment).
  • Implant Supported Dentures (utilizing dental implants to stabilize dentures). Many patients have commented that this is the best investment they have ever made.
  • Partial Dentures (also known as removable partial dentures) where the remaining teeth are used to support the replacement teeth.
  • New Dentures to replace existing dentures and improve cosmetics.
Removable Orthodontic Appliances
  • Active Hawley retainers help to guide crooked, overlapping or slightly depressed teeth into a more natural smile.

Before Retainer

After Retainer
  • Night guards help to protect your teeth and jaw from clenching and grinding while sleeping.

  • Sports guards help to protect teeth from injury.

Tooth Whitening
  • We offer custom fit whitening trays with day use bleach that will help provide you with the optimum whitening experience.
Digital radiographs
  • We only use digital radiographs for patient films. Digital radiography uses 70-80% less radiation than conventional films, and allows for immediate viewing. We also utilize the most accurate decay detection techniques which are only available to users of KODAK digital x-ray equipment. This software program significantly increases early detection of decay and allows for early control and therefore an improved preventive approach to ultimate oral health.

Lumineers and One-Hour Veneers
Options for thin, strong and durable porcelain facings

One hour veneers: Pre-formed porcelain facing that minimizes removal of tooth structure, like a crown would. Placement is usually completed in just one treatment session. No impressions or laboratory work is required.
Before and After Photos of teeth using Snap-It or Snap-On Lumineers  

Before and after photos using Snap-on Smile LumineersLumineers are laboratory fabricated permanent porcelain facing that does not require anesthesia.

Slight shaping, contouring of your teeth may be necessary; however, since it is very minimal temporary facings are not necessary.

Snap-On Smile or Snap-It
An excellent choice for patients with gaps, crooked, stained or missing teeth. Patients who are not candidate for bridges or implants or need a temporary appliance until permanent restorations can be done.

In some cases used to replace removable partial dentures. Snap-On Smile and Snap-It are thin and strong with the look of natural teeth. You can eat and drink with your Snap-On Smile or Snap-It.

DNA genetic marker testing

Use of a saliva sample to determine:

1) Presence of Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

2) Genetic likelihood of significant gum/tooth disease which can be passed on by parents.

3) Identification of one or more specific bacteria colonies which lead to oral disease.
