Dentistry is defined as the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and/or treatment (nonsurgical, surgical or related procedures) of diseases, disorders and/or conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and/or the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body; provided by a dentist, within the scope of his/her education, training and experience, in accordance with the ethics of the profession and applicable law. (As adopted by the 1997 ADA House of Delegates)
At our practice we offer a full range of dental treatment. As the definition of dentistry above from the American Dental Association (ADA) states, procedures that are beyond the scope of our practice are referred to an area specialist. So long story short, we treat you the way we would treat our teeth.

Veneers- if your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth. A porcelain veneer is a covering over the tooth that gives natural color and bridges small gaps. Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time.
Bleaching- Teeth whitening, we use a variety of teeth whitening techniques, including Rembrandt Sapphire, to get your teeth their whitest and brightest. Rembrandt Sapphire the revolutionary in-office process that gets your teeth their whitest in just over an hour. Our in-home teeth whitening kits are easy to use and great results are achieved in 4 to 6 weeks. Call our office to learn more about our teeth whitening options.
Crowns & Bridges- We provide excellent restorative dental care. If your teeth are damaged or decayed, crowns may be constructed to restore them back to their original form. If you have missing teeth, a bridge may be utilized. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and are referred to as “fixed” dentistry as opposed to a restoration of missing teeth with a removable appliance or partial denture.
Root Canal Treatment- also known as endodontic treatment is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged nerve of a tooth is removed so that the tooth can be saved or restored. We are typically able to do a root canal, using digital radiography, in one visit.
Bonding- Bonding is covering the front surface of teeth with durable plastic to either change the tooth’s color or shape, or the rebuild broken teeth. Bonding is similar to veneers, but not as strong, but it is a low-cost way to improve your smile. Bonding is great for children who have chipped front teeth and for adults who need an alternative for veneers and understand the limitations.
Some of the above procedures are also known as cosmetic dentistry.
We accept most dental insurances and will assist in communicating with your insurance.
