Clear Align

Now there is a better way to achieve the smile you've always wanted without the difficulties and discomfort associated with wearing traditional braces. It's called the Clear Align System.

There are no metal brackets no wires or bulky appliances. Instead the Clear Align System utilizes a series of clear nearly undetectable aligners which slip comfortably over your teeth.

Treatment typically takes between six months and two years - about the same amount of time as conventional braces.

Aligners have been proven effective in clinical research and are being used nationwide to treat hundreds of thousands of patients.

Cosmetic Dentistry

With modern technology it’s possible to make your smile look perfect – porcelain laminates and cosmetic bonding are routine procedures at our office.


You may have heard the term "cosmetic dentistry" and wondered exactly what that term means. As a restorative dentist, I focus not only on restoring and replacing natural teeth, but also on giving our patients beautiful smiles. As such, cosmetic considerations are a very important part in our office.

Some patients have been dissatisfied with their smile for years, and they come to us for a "dental makeover." Other patients, however, have more subtle concerns, and these are also addressed.

To determine your level of satisfaction with your smile, take a close look at your teeth in a mirror. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What concerns do I have about the appearance of my teeth or smile?
  • What concerns do I have about the whiteness/lack of whiteness of one or more of my teeth?
  • What would I like to change about my teeth?
  • Do I have old fillings or other dental treatment that is no longer satisfactory to me?
  • What concerns do I have about the position, angle, or shape of one or more of my teeth?

If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then please bring these concerns to our attention. We will listen to your concerns and advise you of your options so you can make an informed decision.

Your teeth will darken over time. Changes in the color of your teeth can be caused by such factors as the food and beverages consumed (like coffee, tea and soda). Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our dental whitening team. We can provide a variety of options for whitening your smile.

Tooth whitening services are growing in popularity, and it’s one of the most requested services offered by our practice. Everyone sees the growing consumer market focused on whiter teeth. The reality is that over-the-counter, "too good to be true" solutions typically don’t work.

We are trained professionals using industry-approved methods. Our goal is to meet the needs of every patient, and every patient’s needs are different. One of the methods used by our practice is a gentle hydrogen-peroxide gel-activated solution. Our process will whiten your entire smile in one visit. Call us today for a whitening evaluation.

Zoom! Whitening

If you're looking for a fast way to dramatically whiten your teeth, Zoom! In-Office Whitening System may be the answer for you.

In a little over an hour, this safe and effective system can give you the instant results you've been wanting. A specially designed light activates the Zoom! Whitening Gel to gently break down stains on your teeth to put the sparkle back in your smile!

Zoom! Whitening is very safe while under the supervision of a trained dentist. It is one of the safest procedures in cosmetic dentistry. However, we do not recommend this procedure for pregnant women or children under age 13.

You will be given some post-whitening care instructions after your procedure. It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen post-whitening to preserve your bright, white smile. We also recommend occasional touch-ups with the Zoom! Take-Home Gel. Your smile will always be brighter than it was before the procedure, but by following these simple instructions, you can retain your results for a long time!

Although the Zoom! System can help almost anyone, it may not be as effective in every case. We can determine if tooth whitening is a possible option for your case.
