Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is applied and hardened with a special light, ultimately “bonding” the material to the tooth to improve a person’s smile. Among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures, bonding can repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps, change the shape of teeth, or be used as a cosmetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings.

Millions of Americans suffer tooth loss, mostly due to tooth decay, gingivitis (gum disease), or injury. Dental implants are so natural- looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. In the last decade, dental implants have become the most popular option to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants are long term replacement that your dentist places directly in your jaw bone. Composed of ‘titanium’ metal that fuses with your through a process called “osseointegration”, dental implants never slip or make embarrassing noises that advertise the fact your have “false teeth”, and never decay like teeth anchoring bridges. They also prevent bone loss and thus prevent the change of facial profile people experience after they have lost their original teeth.
Composite White Fillings
Traditional dentists like to use to term “silver fillings”, but they have more mercury in them than silver! Amalgam fillings due to metallic nature break down at a much higher rate causing the tooth to weaken and become more and more sensitive over time. Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth and help the tooth keep most of its original strength. Besides being better functionally, they also help restore the natural appearance of the tooth. Especially with new cavities, composites require less removal of tooth structure due to the nature of the bond and thus helps in preventing unnecessary damage to the tooth.
Crowns are ideal restorations for teeth which have been broken or weakened by large fillings. The crown fits over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. Crowns are made of several materials from porcelain fused to gold to all porcelain and can last up to 30 years or more. Our crowns are designed in a cosmetic laboratory that only specialize in this type of a procedure.
Lumineers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells that are custom-designed to give you the beautiful smile you always dreamed of. Bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size or length. Unlike traditional veneers, there are no shots, no drilling of sensitive tooth structure and no pain. They are even reversible, so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain. During your first visit, a precision mold will be taken. You and your dentist will choose the right shade for your new, permanently white smile. On your second visit, your custom designed Lumineers are checked for fit and shade. Then, they are painlessly attached.
The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the dazzling smile you have always dreamed of. Using advanced 3 – D technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom – made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment will be determined by your doctor, based on your specific needs. Your aligners are removable allowing you to eat and drink what you want during treatment and also to brush and floss normally helping you maintain good oral hygiene during the process.
