Composite resin, which matches the color of your teeth is applied to alter the shape of a tooth, repair chipped teeth, or mask unsightly stains.

Porcelain Laminates/Veneers

Porcelain veneers, alternatively termed dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front side of teeth so to create a cosmetic improvement for teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned.

Cosmetic Recontouring of the Teeth

Dramatic results can sometimes be acheived with simple procedures, such as the harmless and painless reshaping of twisted or uneven teeth. Misaligned teeth can be put back in their place using technologies such as Invisalign. For more information on Invisalign, please view our Invisalign page

Porcelain Onlay and Inlay

Inlays and onlays are used to make the tooth stronger by holding it together while retaining a natural, aesthetically pleasing color. They are used in instances when there is deficient tooth structure to support a filling but the tooth is still in a condition that does not require a crown. Inlays fit into the space remaining after the decay of an old filling or cavity has been removed and onlays (partial crowns) sit on the tooth and enforce its structure.

Empress Onlays and Inlays

Inlays/onlays made of IPS Empress all-ceramics are hardly distinguishable from a normal tooth and may be a viable option to improve upon unseemly, silver or metal amalgam fillings.

Porcelain Jacket Crown (all porcelain or all ceramic)

The most aesthetically favorable crown, which provides the best natural color match than any other crown type and maybe more suitable for people with metal allergies. However, they are not strong as porcelain-fused to-metal crowns and they wear down opposing teeth a little more than a metal or resin crowns. All ceramic crowns are a good choice for front teeth.

Zoom 2 Whitening System Combined with At Home Whitening System.

ZOOM! Advanced Power is a teeth whitening process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. It is a fast, proven, and safe way to get a brilliant set of teeth. In addition, we provide our patients with a take-home kit, to ensure your new smile will never fade.

How does it work? The ZOOM! Advanced Power light-activated teeth whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The ZOOM! Advanced Power teeth whitening light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and accelerate the penetration of the surface of the tooth.


Now you can choose a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth.

Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. So, whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile.

You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth, gradually week by week, millimeter by millimeter until you've achieved the intended result: straighter teeth.


No braces. Nothing to hold you back. Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And because it's removable, eating brushing and flowing are no problem. You can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back. With Invisalign, there's nothing to hide.
