Achieving desired smile results always happens with a lot of communication.

We create an ideal plan for you and help you make an informed decision about your treatment.
The material that we use for tooth-colored fillings is composite resin. This method of restoration is used to improve the structure and appearance of the tooth with minimal invasion and discomfort. The color of the resin can be matched closely to the natural tooth. Composite resin is best suited to repair teeth that are chipped, fractured, or decayed.
The procedure involves bonding the material to the tooth surface. No anesthesia is generally required and each tooth can be finished in under an hour. After being placed, the filling hardens with seconds and you can see results on the same day.
Veneers are very thin shells made of porcelain that can be bonded over teeth. They are made in the desired shape and color and then placed over the prepared tooth. The required shade of white or the color of neighboring teeth can be achieved with this material. We work with you to understand the kind of smile you want to achieve with the veneers and strive to give you something you would be extremely happy with.
For a veneer to go over the front of a tooth, the tooth needs to be prepared by removing a thin layer of the enamel to accommodate it. The veneer is shaped in a lab so we fit you with a temporary one for the time being.
Veneers work great for stained, chipped, or irregularly shaped teeth. They are also used to close any gaps between teeth.
If your smile is missing a tooth or extractions have been made, inserting a dental implant in the jawbone allows a prosthetic tooth to be fixed on it. This tooth looks like your real teeth and makes your smile look natural and complete.
