Crowns are custom-made to fit your tooth and fabricated from pure porcelain. Crowns are permanently fitted to teeth, restoring the chewing surfaces to their natural strength. Crowns can be used to whiten, reshape and realign existing teeth for a natural comfortable bite and more attractive appearance.


Dental bridges are used to replace one or seveal missing teeth. A dental bridge is a custom-made false tooth or set of teeth placed permanently between two healthy teeth, filling the space where a tooth or teeth have fallen out or been removed. Once your custom bridge is created, it is bonded in place.


We restore all cavities with a white tooth colored filling, they look completely natural and virtually disappear in your smile. Upon request we also do amalgam fillings.

Onlays & Inlays

When a tooth is too damaged to support a filling but not damaged enough for a dental crown, you end up somewhere in the middle. Dental Onlays.
Capping a damaged tooth unnecessarily with a dental crown removes more tooth structure than needed. But a large dental filling can weaken the remaining structure of the tooth, causing the tooth to break, crack or eventually need a root canal. With the use of Cerec Technology in our office he makes onlays, partial crowns and crowns in a single appointment.

Your best bet for preserving the life of any dental restoration is practicing excellent oral hygiene. Brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist regularly will have a significant outcome on the success of your dental onlay or inlay procedure.

Root Canals

Suffering from tooth ache pain or severely damaged tooth? A root canal could save your tooth! We want to make your experience with us as comfortable as possible. So what exactly is a root canal? Inside every tooth is a pulp full of nutrients and nerves. If this pulp becomes diseased or injured, this important and delicate pulp dies. If you don’t remove it, your tooth becomes infected and may be lost. But now, even teeth with disease deep in the nerve can be saved. After we remove the diseased pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. We then place a crown to make your tooth strong and healthy, and to keep out bacteria.

Dental Implants

Whether you need to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth dental implants can provide a permanent solution that will let you smile, laugh, and enjoy your favorite foods and conversations.

Dental implants are titanium tooth root replacements that serve as a firm foundation for a new tooth, bridge or denture. Versatile, strong and natural-looking, dental implants are permanant replacements for missing teeth; replacing both tooth and root. Dental implants eliminate the need to remove healthy tooth structure and allow for a more permanent solution. At our office we finish the process with implant restoration placement of the artificial tooth/teeth. Studies show that dental implants are the most predictable and longest lasting of all dental procedures. All of our implant solutions are provided by NobelSmile. An industry leader for beautiful long lasting teeth.


Our dentures do more than replace teeth. They provide the optimum position for jaw and bite. The results are attractive, secure dentures that allow you to speak, eat and smile with comfort and confidence. If you are not a candidate for implants, consider our beautifully designed cosmetic dentures and partials.

By restoring your dental health, you can restore the confidence in your life on so many diffrent levels.
