Our Services


Routine Exams


Regular dental exams are an important part of preventive health care. During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease.

Dental Hygiene


​During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will likely discuss your diet and oral hygiene habits and might demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. 

Dental Fillings


Fillings help restore teeth damaged by decay back to their normal function, and can prevent further decay. Your dentist will consider a number of factors when choosing which type of filling material is best for you. These factors include the extent of the repair, where in your mouth the filling is needed and the cost.

Dental Implants


A missing tooth can be replaced with a more permanent solution than a bridge or denture, in the form of a dental implant. Implants involve the implantation of an artificial tooth root in the jaw and the application of a new, natural looking prosthetic tooth onto that root.

Dental Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.

Teeth Whitening

This procedure is called chair-side bleaching and usually requires only one office visit. The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleach is then applied to the teeth.

Emergency dental care can be described as an issue involving the teeth and supporting tissues that is of high importance - dental emergencies do not always involve pain, although this is a common signal that something needs to be looked at.

Cosmetic dental care primarily focuses on dental aesthetics in referenced to the color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.
