Invisalign treatment is much more than a pretty smile. Crowded teeth are more difficult to clean, causing build-up of plaque that causes gingivitis and may lead to bone loss and periodontal disease. Invisalign clear, removable aligners gradually straighten teeth, improve periodontal hygiene, and are non-evasive, resulting in easier teeth cleaning. There are no brackets, wires, or restrictions that come with metal braces. Click here for more information on Invisalign.

Crowns also known as "caps" are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance when decay has infected large portions of the tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor bridges, cover implants, and support cracked teeth. A crown can serve an esthetic purpose and is applied to a discolored or stained tooth to help restore its natural appearance. Crowns can be made in all porcelain or porcelain fused to a metal substructure.
Proper homecare and regular dental cleanings are essential to prolong the life of a crown. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to avoid bacterial buildup around the restoration. Certain behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding), may significantly shorten the life of a crown. Eating brittle foods, ice, or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown and also damage it.
Special thin porcelain laminates, called veneers, can often be used to correct discolored, worn, cracked, and chipped teeth. A veneer can reverse years of staining caused by foods, drinks, and tobacco use. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth. Veneers are not recommended for those who clench or grind their teeth.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to brighten stained, discolored, or dull teeth. Our GLO system may be all that is needed to reverse the effects of time in under an hour. Another option is our home whitening system to create results in 2 weeks. Tooth whitening is most effective if your teeth are darkened from age, coffee & tea, or smoking. Teeth discolored
in yellow, brown or orange shades respond better to whitening treatment. Unfortunately, while gray stains caused by fluorosis or tetracycline can be lightened, the results can be less than satisfactory.
If you're interested in brightening your smile, have your teeth evaluated by us to see if you are a good candidate.
