Keep reading to get an overview of the treatments we offer in-office. We hope that this information helps you better understand how your smile may benefit from professional treatment.

Professional cleanings: semi-annual professional cleanings help to minimize the amount of accumulated plaque and tartar in your mouth.

Dental bonding: bonding allows our team to restore damaged teeth and improve dental aesthetics with customized composite resin.

Dental crowns: personalized dental crowns are used to rebuild teeth that have been compromised due to infection or trauma.

Porcelain veneers: these ultra-thin cosmetic restorations are permanently attached to natural teeth in order to resurface and transform selected teeth. Because veneers are totally customizable, they can be used on individual teeth or en masse to transform the entire smile.

Tooth replacement treatments: patients suffering from tooth loss may benefit from partial dentures, implant-stabilized dentures, or dental implant restoration.

TMJ treatment: if your temporomandibular joints are damaged or dysfunctional, our team provides treatments to improve jaw functioning. This type of treatment not only improves day-to-day life; it also helps you avoid premature dental damage and wear and tear.

Sleep apnea treatment: sleep apnea is a condition that disrupts your ability to get a restful full night’s sleep. Our team uses patient-friendly oral appliances to help people overcome sleep apnea issues.
