Dental Implants

Improve your ability to speak clearly, eat comfortably and smile with confidence. Dental implants are a scientifically advanced approach to solving the problem of missing teeth with more comfort, stability and durability than traditional restorative solutions such as dentures. More↓↑Less

Dental Cleaning

Dental cleaning will remove plaque, tartar and bacteria build-up and thus keep your teeth healthy. Schedule your dental cleaning at least once a year to prevent bothersome dental issues, such as periodontal disease, cavities, tooth decay or even tooth loss. More↓↑Less

Invisalign and Clear Braces

Invisalign aligners have many benefits over traditional braces – the ability to remove them anytime, extreme comfort, easy application and most importantly, barely visible and translucent plastic material instead of irritating and unsightly metal wires. More↓↑Less

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Restoring the original function of your teeth as well as improving the aesthetic appearance is easy with dental crowns and fixed bridges. Dental porcelain is now the material preferred by dentists and patients for its many benefits: strength, durability, resistance to discoloration, glass-like whiteness and polished look. More↓↑Less

Veneers/Porcelain Veneers

Bite-related problems, broken, chipped or gapped teeth, discoloration and poor shape – all these issues can be easily solved with dental veneers. Patients now prefer dental porcelain because of its many advantages over other materials: durability, resistance to heat, cold and stress, translucency and a polished look. More↓↑Less

Root Canals

Formerly, a tooth with a diseased nerve was usually damaged beyond repair and had to be removed. Our dentist office offers a better solution – root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment – a comfortable procedure which will treat your root canal issues, repair and save the affected teeth. More↓↑Less

Teeth Whitening

Despite the wide selection of over-the-counter whitening systems, a professional teeth whitening procedure in a dentist office is still the safest and most effective way of solving the discoloration of your teeth and improving your overall oral health. More↓↑Less

Full Dentures/Partial Dentures

There’s no need to live with damaged or missing teeth – our dentist office provides its patients with advanced techniques in tooth replacement through properly fitted full and partial dentures. Schedule your appointment and find out whether you’re the right candidate for dentures! More↓↑Less

Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies happen on a daily basis and in most cases, they don’t pose a serious risk to your health. After an incident happens, it is still advisable to have your teeth thoroughly examined by a dental expert to make sure that your jaw structure or tooth function have not been compromised.
