Invisalign®Invisalign® is a way to straighten your teeth without metal brackets and wires. It is a type of dental aligner, made of a clear, rigid plastic. The aligners are created using 3-dimensional images of your mouth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners are removable and should be taken out to eat and to brush your teeth.

Teeth WhiteningZoom! Whitening is a professional whitening procedure designed to whiten not just your enamel, but your dentin as well. We use a specialized whitening gel that contains hydrogen peroxide, which is light activated. The light source we expose your teeth to causes the hydrogen peroxide to break down. As it breaks down, it enters your enamel and the dentin, clinging to stains and bleaching them away.

Dental VeneersVeneers are designed to cover the front portions of your teeth, masking a variety of different minor imperfections. They are thin, shell-like restorations, only requiring a small amount of enamel to be removed. By removing the enamel, it ensures that the veneers fit perfectly whitin the rest of your smile.

Dental CrownsA crown is essentially a "cap" that is designed to fit over a damaged or otherwise compromised, tooth, covering the entire tooth above the gum line. It has an important job in protecting the tooth, providing an alternative to extracting a damaged tooth, allowing it to stay rooted within its socket. The crown helps to hold the tooth together, provide it with strength and protect it from any bacterial invasions.

Aesthetic Gum LiftOften referred to as a crown lengthening, an aesthetic gum lift is a procedure designed to remove excess gum tissue. Depending on your specific circumstances, we may also need to remove a small amount of bone to achieve the desired results. When the process is complete, you are left with a more even gum line, and your teeth appear longer and more natural.
