Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure that we can use to fill in cracks, chips, and inconsistencies in your teeth to give you a more perfect smile. We can even use dental bonding to fill in gaps between teeth, or to change the shape of a tooth that doesn’t look right. To accomplish all of this we use composite resin, which is the same material that we use for tooth-colored fillings. The application process involves adding a bit of texture to the teeth that we will be applying the bond to. In order to make these surfaces rougher, we use a mildly acidic solution on the surfaces that will receive the bond. With dental bonding we can:


•  Altering the shape of a tooth

•  Filling unsightly gaps

•  Repairing damage caused by decay

•  Visibly fixing alignment issues

Dental Veneers

One of the most powerful cosmetic dental options available today is porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin strips of porcelain that are made to look exactly like your teeth and are applied over your natural teeth. They can be used to fix a variety of issues including:


•  Crooked teeth

•  Crowded teeth

•  Gapped teeth

•  Aesthetically unpleasing teeth

•  Malformed teeth

•  Cracked or chipped teeth

•  Off-color teeth


Using porcelain veneers we can give you the smile that you have always dreamed of having!

Dental Crowns

When a tooth doesn’t have enough of its original structure left due to trauma or decay we can often save it with the help of a crown. Crowns are dental restorations that are specially crafted to look and feel just like the tooth that we are saving. Once the crown has been crafted, we will make sure that the crown can comfortably fit over your tooth before we place it permanently.


Crowns are used to:

•  Protect and restore a fractured tooth

•  Restore a tooth that has suffered from decay

•  Protect a tooth that has experienced physical trauma

•  Cover a tooth that is unsightly

•  Finish a dental implant

•  Act as a dental bridge to cover a gap of missing teeth

Dental Bridges

When missing a number of consecutive teeth, a bridge allows us to fill the gap in both form and function. Missing teeth definitely detract from the beauty of your smile, but the drawbacks to missing teeth don’t end there. When you are missing teeth, you may not be able to eat certain foods, and your bite can change for the worse. A bridge restores your smile and your ability to eat and speak. Depending on structural requirements, wear, and esthetics will influence material choice. 


Bridges are used to:

•  Replace teeth that are missing

•  Prevent teeth from moving

•  Correct alignment issues stemming from missing teeth

•  Prevent TMJ issues

•  Increase aesthetic appeal

Dental Implants

When it comes to replacing teeth, one of the best options is almost always a dental implant. Dental implants are able to replace any single tooth in the mouth in both form and function. They can also be used to support larger tooth replacement options like permanent bridges and even full arches of teeth. They are surgically placed into the jaw and are eventually integrated into your bone structure.


Implants are used to:

•  Replace missing teeth

•  Keep teeth from shifting

•  Correct issues that have developed due to missing teeth

•  Prevent TMJ issues

•  Restore cosmetic appeal of missing or damaged teeth
