Our Featured Procedures
Same-Day Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that cover teeth that are damaged or cosmetically flawed. As one of the most popular treatments in modern dentistry, it's a shame that it takes many dentists several weeks to design them, have them fabricated at a dental lab, and then place them for patients. This isn't an issue at our practice; we have CEREC. Our dentists use this tool to custom-design and manufacture brand-new crowns right here at our office. The process is quick, allowing you to improve your oral health or enhance your smile in a single appointment.
Dental implants are the gold-standard treatment for missing teeth, and our dentists use cone-beam imaging and surgical guides for precise implant placement and superior long-term outcomes. Our dentists can provide implant-supported crowns, dental bridges, or full-arch dentures to meet the needs of patients dealing with all levels of tooth loss.
Veneers are porcelain shells that fit onto the front surfaces of teeth. They can be used to improve the look of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, slightly gapped, or slightly misshapen. Our crowns are custom-made, meaning we can adjust them so they have the precise shape, shade, and size that will give your smile the most effective enhancement.
Let's face it—our teeth can become stained even if we take care with our diet and our habits. If you feel that your smile has lost some of its luster, consider a professional teeth whitening appointment for quick and easy results. We offer in-office laser whitening, which can brighten your smile noticeably in less than an hour. We also offer professional-grade take-home whitening kits so you can refresh your smile on your schedule.
