Teeth Whitening

Stains add up over time, whether from smoking, coffee, wine, or just time. We offer both in-office and at-home whitening options to brighten your smile and restore it to a healthy radiance. In-office teeth whitening offers predictable results (up to ten shades brighter!) in just about an hour, making it the perfect solution for patients looking for quick results. At-home whitening kits offer the same predictable results over the course of two weeks of daily application.

Dental Bonding

Looking for a non-invasive way to improve the look of your smile? Dental bonding can mask minor flaws by applying a tooth-colored resin to your teeth. It can be used to repair chips, close gaps, or modify the color or shape of your teeth. Dental bonding is a painless, simple way to restore your smile with minimal to no preparation.


Porcelain veneers are one of our most popular cosmetic treatments, as they allow us to quickly and comfortably repair any amount of damaged dental structure or smile. We also offer “no-prep veneers,” which are thin enough to fit over each tooth without needing to remove any enamel first. We can discuss which veneer option is best for you during your consultation.


Botox has become a popular treatment not just for reducing fine lines and wrinkles but also for the management of jaw pain or migraine headaches. If you experience symptoms of chronic jaw pain, headaches, or other TMD/TMJ symptoms, we can determine if Botox injections may help.


Enameloplasty is a procedure that’s often used alongside other treatments such as dental bonding to produce a straight, even smile. Using a specialized buffing tool that painlessly removes a thin layer of enamel, our doctors can easily reshape your teeth and remove minor imperfections.

Cosmetic Makeovers

Sometimes multiple dental treatments are needed to restore your confidence, bring your teeth and gums into alignment, and give you the smile you deserve. We specialize in creating fully-custom treatment plans for each patient, so you can complete your cosmetic makeover in accordance with your timeline, budget, and specific dental goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Botox injections used for in dentistry?

Botox injections have long been seen as a cosmetic procedure, but they also can treat TMJ/TMD symptoms. That’s because they work to relax the muscles in the face and jaw that can cause pain and tension. Feel free to ask one of our doctors about whether or not Botox may be an option to treat your TMJ pain.

How long do results from teeth whitening last?

Professional in-office teeth whitening can last anywhere from 1-3 years, making it an ideal choice for anyone looking for high-quality results with staying power. In contrast, over-the-counter teeth whitening results typically fade after 6 months.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for veneers?

Veneers are a great option for patients who want to enhance the overall appearance of their smiles without undergoing extensive restorative or cosmetic procedures. They can help correct issues such as:

  • Chipped or uneven teeth
  • Crowding or spacing issues
  • Discoloration
  • Misaligned or misshapen teeth
  • Small or short teeth

A consultation at our practice can help determine whether or not you’d be a good fit for veneers.
