Professional Teeth Whitening

Over time, your teeth can absorb stains. Coffee, tea, sodas, and countless other food and drinks can contribute to your teeth getting darker. In addition to the daily plaque removal with brushing and flossing, whitening is a great option to help brighten your smile.

Our favorite whitening option is take-home bleaching trays. We take impressions of your teeth during in a simple ten-minute appointment. The trays are made here in our office in just a few days. At your delivery appointment, we will provide you with your trays and whitening agent, along with thorough instructions for use. We also recommend sensitivity toothpaste before starting your whitening trays and to use throughout treatment.

If you have noticed your smile getting a little darker over the years, or you are an avid coffee or tea drinker and you would like to brighten your smile, please schedule an appointment today to discuss your whitening options!

Often referred to as "bondings," composite buildups are a great option to improve the looks of your smile. Our talented doctors can repair chips or discolorations, close spaces between teeth, and handcraft a beautiful smile. Best of all, we can complete the process in one single visit!


If your smile is in need of a makeover, an excellent option is veneers placed on your front teeth. We can easily change the shape and color or your teeth with minimally invasive porcelain veneers.

It takes at least two appointments to design and place veneers. At the first appointment, your teeth will be minimally prepared and impressions are taken to send to our amazing dental lab. During your next visit, we deliver your finished veneers and cement them in place. We provide at-home care for your new smile along with recommendations for a night guard to protect your teeth from grinding and lengthen the lifespan of your porcelain veneers.

Esthetic Dental Crowns

If your smile already has some fillings in the front teeth or have been root canal treated, crowns may be a better choice for making your smile beautiful. The same procedures apply, with two separate appointments. During the first, we prepare your teeth and take impressions. At the second, we deliver your crowns, and at-home care instructions are also provided.
