Comprehensive and Esthetic Dentistry

General Dentistry & More

We focus on continuing education to maintain the highest level of knowledge so that we may provide the best care for our patients. Our Dentists are on top of the most current and proven dental services to make sure you have the very best experience and treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry refers to improving your smile, whitening your teeth or any aesthetic reason for using a dentist. Braces, crowns, veneers, teeth whitening, bridges, implants, gum reshaping or even a complete dental makeover are all considered cosmetic dentistry.

Dental Implants

A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Dental Cleaning

Our preventive treatment helps with all sorts of dental disease. We use standard dental procedure for the removal of tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine toothbrushing.


Invisalign scans your impressions, so that they have a 3D model of your teeth in their computer. … You will wear a set of Invisalign trays for two weeks at a time. Each tray is manufactured so that the teeth are slightly straighter than the previous tray.

Laser Dentistry

A dental laser is a type of laser designed specifically for use in oral surgery or dentistry. In laser dentistry, lasers are used to remove or alter hard and soft tissues in a variety of dental procedures. For more information about laser dentistry contact our staff.
