is such an intimate part of your daily interactions. Spending time with your friends, family, and coworkers, you want to be able to confidently flash a smile you are proud of. Some people are born with great teeth, but for the rest of us, we’ll probably need a little help to get to that perfect smile.

So many things in life can fade that bright, white color of your teeth. Coffee, tobacco, and many other substances will make that white smile, yellow, or even brown. We offer teeth whitening that can quickly return your teeth to their natural glow. The more modern treatments are also much gentler on gums, without the harsh chemicals that were often used.
When your teeth are crooked, crowded, or too spaced out, the traditional approach was to spend years with awkward braces. Now there are other great options, like the clear mouth inserts called Invisalign. Every two weeks you will get a new set and then after about a year, your teeth will be right where you want them.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns, also known as caps, are fixed on top of the tooth to repair and solidify the structure. They are made of composite or porcelain, usually, and can be made to closely match the natural look of your teeth. Unlike dentures, these are permanent. Bridges are made to fill in gaps and missing teeth and can connect to crowns. Bridges are recommended to prevent your teeth from shifting, causing greater alignment problems.
