A beautiful smile can increase your confidence and self-esteem, giving you an edge in your everyday activities by improving your professional and personal image. If your teeth are dark or worn and make you look older, if gaps or chips make you feel self-conscious, or if crooked or discolored teeth stop you from smiling fully, we can help.
After we understand your needs and goals, we consider the shape of your face, color of your eyes, shape and contour of lips. We evaluate factors like the symmetry of your eyes and nose to the other dimensions. Once you have your new smile, your confidence soars.

disease. This infection causes persistent bad breath,
gums that bleed easily, and gum recession. It can also

periodontal disease, we administer a local anesthetic before
scaling and root planning. We then use an ultrasonic
scaler, which emits a sonic vibration to remove tartar
deposits from around and below the gum line. After a
scaling procedure, we smooth the exposed surfaces of a
tooth’s root to promote healing; then we apply Arestin, an
antibiotic powder that adheres to infected gum tissue.

Americans. Some common symptoms include pain in or
