Straighten TeethHere’s a fast summary of some of our top treatments so you can get a better understanding of what could be the best procedure for your oral health and aesthetic goals:


Still a fairly recent dental procedure, Invisalign was created to straighten the teeth without the use of metal. The procedure involves clear aligners that move the teeth to the proper position, quickly and easily. It’s fantastic for teens and women and men seeking a more discreet way to enhance their smile. As an added bonus, this treatment allows individuals to clean their teeth better and eat more comfortably since they are removable, ulke standard metal braces. Though, for maximum effectiveness, you are required to wear them 22 hours per day. Overall, the process is often fairly faster than the conventional form of braces, with the majority of treatments lasting around one year. When the treatment ends, you’ll simply require a retainer for evening use to maintain the incredible results.


Dental veneers are an excellent sounticion for enhancing a smile. They are placed on a tooth to cover it, working like a mask. Veneers last a long time and may automatically whiten the teeth. The procedure only requires a few trips to the dentist to complete a stunning full mouth transformation.

Dental Bonding

Considered a less expensive option, dental bonding is a composite that has a similar tooth shade attached and shaped in order to give the tooth better alignment. It immediately changes the look of the teeth. The downside of this procedure is that they may stain easily.

Gum and Dental Contouring

Another fast cosmetic option that can lead to virtually instantaneous results is dental contouring. With this process, the dentist might reshape a bit of tiny tooth enamel spaces to enhance and create a more desirable shape. Laser Gum Contouring involves eliminating excessive gum situated around teeth to create a more desirable look. Either of these services may be blended with dental bonding to offer your smile a rapid improvement.
