Our Dental Services

Our office provides the tools and technology to benefit your dental health and the whiteness of your smile: We are an invisalign certified office, which is a method of straightening teeth using a series of clear, almost invisible, removable Aligners. Invisalign combines the Doctors clinical treatment plan with 3-D, computer-generated software to make these set of unique, custom-made Aligners that move teeth in very precise increments. Invisalign is also a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, no one will know you're wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks and your teeth will move, little by little towards the smile you've always wanted. "Invisalign has been an absolute blessing for me. I've been able to see the results of regular metal braces with the comfort and convenience of clear aligners. You can't even tell I am wearing them, and they are just as effective as regular braces. Invisalign is a great choice for you if you need braces. They make transitioning to a new and beautiful smile easy and stress-free and you still feel attractive." Tiffanie Davis Invisalign Patient

Tooth Colored Restorations: Beautiful & Strong! Until recent years, patients had no choice about the color of fillings. Now you can have old silver or gold fillings replaced with nearly invisible porcelain, resin and composite restorations. Another key advantage is that porcelain fillings can be bonded to the teeth, giving a much tighter seal to the tooth enamel and adding structural stength to the tooth itself. In the days of silver and gold fillings, the dentist had to remove good tooth enamel along with the decay! With porcelain bonded fillings, this is no longer necessary.

ZOOM & NITE WHITE: Over time most teeth will lose their luster and brightness because they accumulate stains made by various foods and beverages. New whitening agents can remove these stains without harming your teeth, and actually improving the condition of your gingival health. Many products are now available on the market, however the best and fastest whitening solutions are offered ONLY by your dentist. During a typical whitening procedure, your dentist will fabricate a custom tray to hold the whitening gel closely against your teeth. The trays allow for home-application of the whitening procedure, calling for the patient to wear the gel-filled trays each night or for several hours during the day, for several weeks. We also offer "ZOOM 2" - in office whitening as seen on EXTREME MAKE-OVERS. This is called "Power Bleaching" or "Laser Bleaching." These procedures work equally well and are offered both as a "jump start" prior to the home whitening and as a separate, "stand alone" procedure. The above procedures have recently gained heavy media exposure through the TV program "Extreme Makeovers." Want a whiter smile? Ask us about dental whitening! Get your "EXTREME MAKEOVER" today!!

Full-porcelain dental materials include Dental porcelain (porcelain meaning a high-firing-temperature ceramic), other ceramics, sintered-glass materials, and glass-ceramics as indirect fillings and crowns or metal-free "jacket crowns". They are also used as in-lays, on-lays, and aesthetic veneers. A veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain that can replace or cover part of the enamel of the tooth. Full-porcelain restorations are particularly desirable because their color and translucency mimic natural tooth enamel.

Another type is known as porcelain-fused-to-metal, which is used to provide strength to a crown or bridge. These restorations are very strong, durable and resistant to wear, because the combination of porcelain and metal creates a stronger restoration than porcelain used alone. One of the advantages of computerized dentistry (CAD/CAM technologies) involves the use of machinable ceramics which are sold in a partially sintered, machinable state that is fired again after machining to form a hard ceramic. Some of the materials used are glass-bonded porcelain (Viablock), "lithium disilicate" glass-ceramic (a ceramic crystallizing from a glass by special heat treatment), and phase stabilized zirconia (zirconium dioxide, ZrO2). Previous attempts to utilize high-performance ceramics such as zirconium-oxide were thwarted by the fact that this material could not be processed using the traditional methods used in dentistry. Because of its high strength and comparatively much higher fracture toughness, sintered zirconium-oxide can be used in virtually every full ceramic prosthetic solution, including bridges, implant supra structures and root dowel pins. Lithium disilicate (used in the latest Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics CEREC product) also has the fracture resistance needed for use on molars.
