Our Featured Treatments 


Many people desire a more symmetrical smile but feel embarrassed about wearing bulky metal braces. Fortunately, our dentists offer Invisalign® clear aligners to discreetly straighten your teeth. These clear plastic trays are virtually undetectable and more comfortable than traditional orthodontics. Ask your dentist about Invisalign at your next appointment to find out if you are a candidate. Worried about cost? Many insurance plans provide coverage for Invisalign!

​Dental Implants

Missing teeth can affect more than just the appearance of your smile. Untreated tooth loss can lead to jawbone atrophy, gum recession, and changes to your facial appearance. You can prevent these oral health conditions with state-of-the-art dental implant treatment. Implants are prosthetic tooth roots that provide the best support for replacement teeth. Our dentists highly recommend implant-supported restorations for patients looking for the most permanent, comfortable, and durable solution to tooth loss.

​Dental Crowns

Alleviate painful symptoms and restore your oral health with a natural-looking dental crown. With the help of our in-office CEREC® system, our dentists can restore and protect a compromised tooth in a single appointment with a same-day crown. Our dentists will carefully color-match your crown to your unique shade of enamel to blend in seamlessly with your smile. With proper care, a dental crown can protect your teeth for well over a decade before needing replacement.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have slight cosmetic imperfections in your smile that affect your confidence, veneers can provide a fast and beautiful-looking enhancement. These thin porcelain shells are bonded directly to the front surfaces of the teeth to conceal gaps, minor misalignment, deep stains, and more.
