Porcelain no/minimal Prep Veneers

A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain that is placed over the existing tooth enamel. The advantage is that very little tooth structure needs to be removed. The procedure takes very little time and most often, anesthetic is not necessary.

Porcelain Crowns

A tooth colored crown is a most natural looking, durable way of restoring your teeth and enhancing your smile. With today’s modern technology, a porcelain crown is so natural looking that people cannot tell which teeth are crowned and which are not! And with same day crowns many times it can be done all in one appointment.

Whitening Teeth (Bleaching)

Are your natural teeth yellow or discolored? A very popular and effective way to brighten your teeth is through bleaching. We will take a mold of your teeth and then create custom flexible thin plastic trays. You will fill the trays with a few drops of whitening gel and wear the trays for an hour or two each day (or overnight if you prefer). You do this until you see the results that you desire (can be a week or 3 weeks). Then if you want to touch up a year later, you repeat the process, using the same trays. The results are amazing!
