We offer a variety of dental treatments and procedures to enhance the look of your smile, including the following:

Teeth whitening

When your teeth become discolored and stained from consuming foods and beverages like coffee, wine, and dark sodas, professional teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to make your smile look brighter and whiter. Because many foods and drinks can stain our teeth, do this regularly to keep your smile looking its best.


Porcelain veneers are another cosmetic dentistry procedure that can instantly make your smile look whiter and perfect. Veneers are thin shells that go over the front of your teeth to hide any type of imperfection and give you a more attractive appearance. Like teeth whitening, veneers are a minimally invasive way to improve your smile and your confidence.

Here are a few situations where you might want to consider getting porcelain dental veneers:

* You have teeth that are stained from years of drinking coffee and wine.

* You want to close any gaps in your teeth or create an even-looking smile.

* You want to make your teeth appear straighter and more uniform.

* You want to have the perfect teeth you’ve always dreamed of having.

* You hate the way your smile looks!

A veneer is a thin shell of tooth-colored material that covers a tooth to improve its appearance. Many dentists use veneers to correct cosmetic issues such as gaps between teeth or teeth that are discolored or misshapen. 

Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a quick and painless procedure that can fix many minor imperfections in your smile without requiring extensive work. Most dental bonding treatments can be completed in a single visit. One of our dentists will first clean your teeth and prepare the surface for the bonding material with a conditioning liquid. Then they will apply the bonding material to the tooth and carefully sculpt it to the desired shape before hardening it with a curing light. It’s that easy! The results are immediate, and you can get back to your normal routine right away.

The composite resin used in dental bonding is a pliable material that can be applied in very thin layers. This makes it possible to cover up chips in the enamel as well as white spots or stains from coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, and more. Dental bonding is also a good choice if you have a gap between your front teeth or other small misalignments.

Smile makeover

A smile makeover involves one or more cosmetic procedures that improve the appearance of your smile. Although a smile makeover can combine a number of treatments, it typically addresses the appearance of the teeth that show when you smile. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile and aren’t happy with the way it looks now, a smile makeover may be right for you. Some patients choose to combine a few cosmetic procedures to address several issues at once, while others may choose to undergo a single procedure to contrast changes to their smile caused by tooth decay or aging.
