  • Cosmetic fillings — Alternative, natural-looking materials to conventional silver-colored fillings made from porcelain and composite resins, which are colored to match natural tooth enamel.
  • Tooth Whitening – Using different levels of bleach, this procedure can reverse the effects of such things as aging, food and tobacco stains and medication use.
  • Veneers — Thin laminates used to cover stains, correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth, and even close unsightly gaps between teeth.
  • Bonding — A tooth-colored material that looks like the enamel of your teeth and is used to improve the color of a tooth, or close unsightly gaps.
  • Cosmetic reshaping – A relatively simple procedure that can correct crooked, chipped, cracked, and even overlapping teeth.
  • Implants – Synthetic or ceramic structures placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are sometimes a viable alternative to partial dentures.
  • Crowns — Synthetic caps typically made of porcelain that is placed on the top of a tooth to restore its function and appearance, attach bridges, cover implants, or prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse.
  • Crown resizing –Done to reshape gums and bone tissue, and often used to correct a “gummy” smile.
  • Bridges — Natural-looking dental appliances that replace a section of missing teeth and restore the natural contour of your teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.
  • Specialty dentures – Lightweight dentures that mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Most dentures are made from a combination of metals and synthetic material such as acrylic resin, and can be either partial or complete sets.
