How can I improve the look of my smile?

We offer a number of excellent ways to improve the look of your smile. If you have broken, chipped, or missing teeth, we offer incredible options with dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. If you’re looking to brighten your smile, our teeth whitening treatments will make your smile shine. And for a straighter smile, we offer a few different types of braces, including Invisalign, that will give you the smile you’ve always desired.

What is the best toothbrush to use?

Choosing the correct toothbrush can often make a great difference in your overall dental hygiene. When picking out a toothbrush, you must first make sure that it is an acceptable size capable of reaching and cleaning every tooth. Another important factor is the strength of the bristles. While some people feel that hard bristles make their teeth cleaner, they can damage your gums and enamel, resulting in more problems down the road. It is best to use a soft bristle toothbrush for two minutes, twice a day. You might benefit from an electric toothbrush, but we can help you decide when you visit the office.

Do I need braces to straighten my teeth?

Traditional braces are the gold standard when it comes to straightening teeth, but not everyone wants to deal with the hassle of braces. Invisalign is a system that uses clear orthodontic aligners to move teeth, and the average treatment time is 12 to 18 months. Invisalign is virtually invisible, so no one will even know that you’re undergoing treatment. We will help you choose the solution that will work best for your smile.
