There are many options available to get the beautiful smile we desire.

We have a variety of treatment options to choose from to create the beautiful smile you are looking for.  After a thorough examination including a digital scan of your teeth we will discuss with you the possibilities that are available that will address your needs and wants.  The options may include one or more of the following:  whitening, veneers, Invisalign, crowns, and/or tooth colored bondings.      

Many times the main issue is the color of our teeth.  Our teeth can be not as white as we like due to medications we may have taken when were young when our teeth were developing, white spots or brown spots due to decay or decalcification, and age.  Teeth naturally yellow as we get older.  Fortunately, there are options to take care of these conditions and make our smiles whiter and younger looking.  

For some just by whitening the teeth vastly improves the appearance of your smile.  Whitening is the simplest of all cosmetic treatment options.  One visit for impressions and a second visit to deliver custom made whitening trays , professional strength whitening gel, and go over instructions.  Then you are on your way to a whiter and brighter smile that can shave off years.

Other options for cosmetic treatment include, bondings, tooth-colored fillings, veneers, and crowns.  These options can take care of multiple situations including decay, discoloration, spaces, and misshaped or worn teeth. 

In cases where the teeth are out of alignment and/or teeth are wearing or chipping from poor alignment, Invisalign is an excellent option with many benefits.  Invisalign can take care of crowded teeth, spacing between teeth, and slowing down wear and chipping from teeth not being in ideal position.  With better alignment our teeth will last longer and are easier to keep clean.  

There are many options available for cosmetic treatment and our goal is to help you choose which of these options are best for you.
