Common reasons to choose cosmetic dentistry include:
  • Changing the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth

  • Repairing decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • Replacing missing teeth
  • Replacing old, unattractive dental treatments


As you age, it’s normal for your tooth enamel to accumulate stains. You may not even notice it at first, but the effects become obvious over time. Discoloration tends to occur more rapidly for people who regularly consume products like coffee, tea, red wine, dark-colored fruit juices, soda, cigarettes, or smokeless tobacco.

How teeth whitening products work:

All popular teeth whitening products work in basically the same way. They use a whitening agent, usually some form of hydrogen peroxide gel, to remove substances that have accumulated on enamel over time. The peroxide gel is chemically unstable. It readily breaks down into more stable components. This chemical process destroys particles that cause stains on your teeth. As stains are broken down, the enamel is restored to its natural white or pale ivory color.

How we whiten your teeth:

One of our dental assistants will take impressions of your teeth. From these impressions, custom trays will be made to fit your teeth perfectly. The trays are ready for you in about a week. When you pick up your custom trays, we’ll give you professional-strength bleaching gel for the trays with specific instructions on how to fill and use them. In less time than over-the-counter products, you’ll have that beautiful white smile you’ve always wanted!


Composite, tooth-colored fillings are used to repair a tooth affected by decay, cracks, or fractures.

Because composite fillings are tooth-colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth. They are more aesthetically suited for the front teeth or more visible areas of the mouth. Today, dentists increasingly turn to tooth-colored or composite fillings as a stronger, safer, more natural-looking alternative to metal fillings.

Common reasons to choose a tooth-colored filling:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth


If you have stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth, porcelain veneers are a wonderful option for restoring and enhancing your smile. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth and provide an immediate transformation. They are created to match or lighten a patient’s teeth for a natural, beautiful look. They provide structural support to damaged teeth and can last for decades. We only have to remove a small amount of enamel to adhere the porcelain veneer to the tooth.
