Periodontics refers to the structures surrounding the teeth, including the gum tissues and bone. Periodontitis is a disease of these structures and is caused by plaque. If left untreated, periodontitis can lead to tooth loss. That’s why we offer preventative care to protect your gums. When gums are infected, we perform scaling and root planing. This involves deep cleaning beneath the gum line and smoothing out the tooth roots so the gums can firmly reattach themselves, thus sealing out bacteria.
With dental implants, we can replace any missing teeth with little intrusion. We surgically insert titanium fixtures into the gums, which over the period of a few months will integrate with the jaw bone. This serves as the foundation for the implant restoration, which consists of a crown. Dental implants do not require preparation of neighboring teeth, unlike bridges.
Invisalign® is a system that straightens teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are removable for eating, drinking, and brushing, and they are virtually invisible. Invisalign® provides an aligned, functional smile without expensive metal braces or other invasive equipment.
Solea Laser Dentistry
Solea is the first CO2 dental laser system cleared by the FDA for hard and soft tissue procedures. Solea replaces the dental drill in the majority of procedures in our practice. It causes virtually no pain, vibration, or noise. In fact, nearly every patient skips anesthesia because they just don’t need it. You are now able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time — and pain — you were accustomed to from traditional drills.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
Zoom! Teeth Whitening creates a dramatically whiter smile in just one hour! This is an in-office treatment during which we apply a hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel to the teeth and activate it with light. When the procedure is complete, you will see immediate results.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
CEREC® is a technology that allows us to create ceramic crowns in just one visit, using CAD/CAM technology. Traditionally, crowns require three visits to create impressions, fabricate, and place. Now, with this state-of-the-art technology, you can achieve a more beautiful smile in just one visit.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded onto the front of natural teeth. They can be used to disguise stains, chips and gaps, and can also create a more aligned smile.
