General Dentistry

Strengthen a tooth and improve the quality of your smile with dental crowns. The placement of a crown helps to maintain the structural integrity of the tooth when a large portion of the tooth is removed due to tooth decay, damage, or a root canal.

Don’t delay treatment when an emergency situation occurs. Call our office right away if you are experiencing pain or injury to your teeth or gums. Time is of the essence and fast treatment improves results in the future.

When tooth decay is present, it needs to be removed to prevent additional damage to the tooth. A tooth-colored filling is used to restore the appearance and strengthen the structure of the tooth.

When the root of the tooth is infected, it is necessary to remove the infected tissue and seal the inside of the tooth to prevent problems in the future. Root canal technology has come a long way over the years, offering a fast treatment to save your tooth from extraction.

Our goal is to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. But, sometimes it is necessary to extract teeth due to damage or other treatments that are needed. Whether it is time for wisdom tooth extraction or a tooth needs to be extracted for orthodontic services, we ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Share a glowing smile with friends and family by choosing our in-office teeth whitening treatment. This treatment offers an effective way to eliminate stains and improve the overall color of the teeth.

Transform the appearance of your smile by choosing veneers. This treatment is catered to your goals, helping you create the appearance that you desire.

Prosthetic Dentistry

Implant supported dentures restore your smile without the inconvenience of traditional dentures. These dental restorations are customized to fit your mouth, attaching to the implants to hold the dentures in place throughout the day.

Replace missing teeth with bridges that are supported by healthy teeth or implants on either side. Bridges can be used if you are missing one or more teeth in the same area of the mouth.

Implants offer a long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth. The implant is placed in the jaw bone with a crown on top, giving you a replacement tooth that is natural and comfortable. The new tooth looks and functions like the original tooth.

Partial or full dentures might be needed for patients missing multiple teeth. Traditional dentures can be used, or you can talk to our team about implant supported solutions.


Braces eliminate gaps and uneven spacing, helping you create the smile of your dreams. Not only do braces improve the position of the teeth, but they are also helpful to align the upper and lower jaws.

Invisalign offers an alternative to braces, giving you another option to straighten your teeth. Many patients prefer the clear trays instead of the traditional metal braces. Invisalign is an effective way to improve the appearance of your smile without brackets and wires.

Canker sores are not only painful, but they can affect your ability to talk and eat. Most people will experience at least one episode of canker sores in their lives, and the symptoms usually go away after a few days.
