Teeth are not indestructible, especially if decay does set in. Fortunately, many kinds of treatment are available. No matter what kind of dental problem you may be experiencing, it’s important to get it taken care of as quickly as possible to give you the best chance of saving the tooth.

If any of your teeth are missing, we can discuss options for replacing them. And if you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, that’s another reason to come see us. There’s a lot we can do to help you smile with confidence. Cosmetic and restorative services we offer include:

Teeth Whitening
A whiter smile can make you look years younger. Teeth whitening is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dental procedure — and teeth whitening provided by a dental professional is the quickest, safest, and most effective way to go.

Tooth-Colored Fillings
Cavities should always be filled promptly to prevent decay from spreading deeper into a tooth, where it can cause a root canal problem. Tooth-colored fillings blend in beautifully with your smile.

Chipped teeth can often be repaired with a quick, easy and relatively inexpensive method of restoration called bonding. In this technique, liquid tooth-colored composite resin is applied to the tooth and hardened layer by layer. Bonding takes just one visit — and the results can be dramatic!

Damaged teeth sometimes need a complete covering, known as a crown or cap, in order to stay viable. Tooth-colored crowns are indistinguishable from natural teeth, so only you and your dentist will know you have one.

These are super-thin tooth-colored shells that cover just the front surface of your teeth — the part you can see. Veneers can fix numerous cosmetic defects, including discoloration, cracks and small chips — all at the same time! Best of all, veneers won’t stain like natural teeth do.

Tooth Replacement
Missing teeth can affect your health, confidence, and quality of life. We offer several different methods of tooth replacement. Let us help you find the one that’s right for you, so you can live life to the fullest again.
