Routine Exams


We recommend coming at least twice a year for a professional dental cleaning and examination to maintain a healthy smile and to remove plaque and tartar.

Thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.
Emergency Dentistry


Same day appointment for dental emergencies, such as broken teeth, toothache, or injury.  If you have oral pain or a major dental emergency, call right away.

Dental Implants


Whether you lost a tooth two weeks ago or twenty years ago, it is never too late to replace your tooth. An implant provides a new tooth that is permanent and looks just like a natural tooth. Read more about our special procedure below.

Dental Fillings


 A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to restore a tooth that is  worn, damaged or decayed. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

Corrects the misalignment of teeth and straightens our your smile. These clear braces shift teeth slowly over time without the embarrassing metal brackets. 
Teeth Whitening


Improve the brightness and whiteness of your smile.  As people age, it is common for teeth to become dull and yellow. This is in part due to age and also due to what a person eats and drinks. Stained and yellow teeth don’t have to stay that way.

Root Canal

Treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. This occurs when the interior portion of the tooth, the pulp, where the tooth's nerves and blood supply are located, becomes infected or damaged. Root canal therapy removes the damaged pulp of the tooth so the tooth can be preserved and an extraction can be avoided.
