We provide comprehensive treatment and skilled dental services that address both your short- and long-term dental care needs in a comfortable and caring environment.

We also offer cosmetic dentistry, ranging from teeth whitening to veneers and crowns.
Tooth preservation and dental conservation lie at the heart of biomimetic dentistry. A type of tooth-conserving dentistry, it treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion. In dental practices around the world, biomimetic dentistry has practically eliminated cutting teeth down for crowns and destructive root canal treatment.
Disease prevention and oral health maintenance
Prevention is the best form of medicine, and it's no different when it comes to your teeth. Brushing your teeth and flossing play a critical role in keeping your mouth healthy, but that's no replacement for the important work that happens during a dental cleaning. It's generally recommended to come in every six months (twice a year) for a dental cleaning.
Air abrasion is a way to remove decay from a tooth without using a dental drill. It works like a sandblaster removing graffiti from walls. The air abrasion hand piece blows a powerful air stream of tiny aluminum oxide particles out of its tip onto the tooth. The tiny particles bounce off the tooth and blast the decay away.
Air abrasion also helps to repair cracks and discolored teeth, to prepare teeth for bonding procedures, such as sealants, and for various other procedures. It works well to repair chipped, fractured, or worn teeth; to prepare teeth for cosmetic surgery; remove stains and spots; repair old fillings and sealants; and repair broken crowns and bridges.
Implants, extractions, crowns, fillings, root canals, dentures
In some cases, preventative oral health is not enough. Dental restoration or implants may become necessary. If that is the case, discuss with your dentist what the best options are.
More often than not, traumatic dental injuries occur from accidents or sports injuries. Most are minor, like chipped teeth. More severe injuries do happen, though. Treatment will depend on its location and severity. Whatever the case may be, get checked out by a dentist as soon as possible.
Excellent referral network to address all of your dental needs
Sometimes something more than standard dental work is needed, requiring specialists such as orthodontists or endodontists. Our referral network will ensure that you get the best care possible and put you in the best hands.
