Our Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures


Teeth Whitening

If your teeth have become discolored talk to us and we will go over your options for brightening your smile. There are over-the-counter options, a take home kit, and an in-office procedure that typically only takes a couple hours and immediate results are seen!


Porcelain Veneers

If you are unhappy with your smile do to chipped and/or unattractive teeth the dentist can perform a smile analysis to determine if porcelain veneers would be a good option for you. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that recreate the natural look of teeth. They make slight position changes or change in shape, size, and/or color.


Braces (orthodontics)

Braces are a popular and widely used way to improve your smile!  Options range from conventional braces to clear Invisalign braces. We offer Invisalign, but you’ll want to discuss what’s best for you with the dentist.


Dental Implants

Dental Implants replace the roots from lost teeth. An implant along with a dental crown can replace a missing tooth or teeth and is permanent and under most circumstances will last a good number of years.


Botox Treatment

Botox cosmetic treatments can help improve the looks of your smile by reducing moderate to severe frown lines. Asides from getting rid of those wrinkles, Botox can potentially be used to improve TMJ.
