Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve your tooth’s  shape  or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for  teeth  that are  broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth  decay.

 A crown is a “cap” cemented onto an existing tooth that usually  covers  the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the  crown  becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns can be  made  of  porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns are most  often  preferred  because they mimic the translucency of natural  teeth and  are very  strong.
 Crowns or onlays (partial crowns) are needed when there is  insufficient  tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Unlike  fillings,  which apply  the restorative material directly into your  mouth, a crown  is fabricated  away from your mouth. Your crown  is created in a lab  from your unique  tooth impression, which  allows a dental laboratory  technician to  examine all aspects of  your bite and jaw movements.  

 Your crown is then sculpted just for you so that your bite and jaw  movements function normally once the crown is placed.

 You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or  misshapen  teeth. With Lumineers®  , you can easily correct your teeth’s  imperfections to help  you  have a more confident, beautiful smile.  Lumineers​® are  natural in appearance, and  they are a perfect option for  patients wanting to make  minor adjustments to the  look and feel of their  smile.

® are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored  materials (such  as  porcelain), and they are designed to cover the front  side of your teeth. To  prepare  for Lumineers®, your doctor will create a  unique model of your teeth. This  model is sent  to the dental technician  to create your veneers. Before placing your  new Lumineers®,  your  doctor may need to conservatively prepare your tooth to  achieve the  desired  aesthetic result.

 You’ll be pleased to see that they look like your  natural teeth. While they  are stain-  resistant, your doctor may recommend that  you avoid coffee,  tea, red wine, and  tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new  smile.

A white smile can leave a lasting impression

 A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth,  help maintain the shape of your face, and  alleviate stress on  your  bite.

 A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth,  looks  great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth  may  have  been. Your  bridge can be made  from gold, alloys,  porcelain,  or a combination of these  materials and is bonded  onto  surrounding teeth for  support.
 The success of any bridge depends on its  foundation —  the  other teeth, gums, or bone to  which it is attached.  Therefore,  it’s  very  important to keep your existing  teeth, gums,  and jaw  healthy and strong.

 Many factors, including dietary habits (drinking coffee, tea, soda, and red  wine) and certain medications, affect the whiteness of your smile. Tooth  whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat common causes of  tooth discoloration while boosting your self-confidence and improving  your appearance.

 Our office offers a wide range of tooth whitening products designed to  brighten your smile. With custom designed take home trays, this tooth  whitening system will accommodate all lifestyles and budgets.

 Prescription-strength Tooth Whitening Systems are stronger and more  effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening products, and are only  available through your dentist.
