Our Services


Cleaning and Prevention


Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations.

Mercury-Free White Fillings


Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or correct any cosmetic damage, a filling is one of the ways our dentists preserve your health.

Crowns, Bridge, and Veneers


If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, our dentists can help you choose the best solution.



 If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health.



Our dentists make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease.



A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth. It is used to chew food and is therefore the most susceptible to cavities.

Night and Snore Guards


Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. Meanwhile, snoring can impact the quality of your own sleep and that of those around you.

Teeth Whitening


Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting that treatments you find over the counter.
