New Patient Exam
In your new patient exam, your doctor will listen closely to your dental goals and concerns and will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the state of your oral health. He will go over any issues that came up in your exam and will describe your treatment options in detail. Our doctor listens to you and make sure to answer all of your questions, so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw to act as replacement tooth roots. They provide a solid foundation for crowns, bridges and full-arch replacement teeth. They are the strongest and longest-lasting of all tooth replacement options.
Our doctor guides you through the entire procedure, partnering with board-certified surgeons who place your implants, while the doctor designs and places the high-quality crowns, bridges and full-arch new teeth that the implants will support. Every part of the procedure is performed in our office.
Our doctor can have implants placed across your dental arch to support a new denture. They will fabricate a well-fitting, durable and lifelike denture that snaps onto the implants. A denture snapped onto implants will provide excellent chewing power and will not slip or move around in your mouth.
All-on-4® New Teeth in One Day
If you have lost all your teeth or need all of your teeth replaced, our doctors can have as few as four specially designed implants placed across your dental arch that will support a set of full-arch, fixed-in new teeth. Your fixed-in new teeth will have near full chewing power and will be very strong, comfortable and natural-looking. Most patients will be able to receive any needed extractions, have all their dental implants placed and receive a functional set of full-arch replacement teeth—all in the same day.

As specialists in dental restorations, our doctors design and place all-porcelain crowns and bridges that are strong, natural-looking, well-fitting and aligned in your bite.
Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain facings that are bonded to the front of the teeth. They are used to change the color, shape or size of a tooth and can dramatically change the look of your smile. Our doctors are specialists in designing and placing veneers. They take great care to make sure your veneers are durable, aesthetic and fit your smile.
Cosmetic Bonding: Minimal-Preparation Chairside Veneers
Cosmetic bonding is a procedure that uses a tooth-colored composite resin to close gaps between teeth, repair chips and cracks, or cover an area of discoloration. Cosmetic bonding can also be used as an economical alternative to porcelain veneers. Our doctors are very experienced with bonding and produce high-quality results.
