Why should I choose a dentist-monitored teeth straightening system over the TV/Internet marketed ones just mailed to me?
Doctor monitored clear aligners are the most proven and best solution for tooth alignment issues. It is imperative to make sure your teeth are healthy and ready for orthodontic treatment before beginning. Invisalign provides enhanced features, flexibility and streamlined options for straightening teeth, providing patients with a comfortable and aesthetically appealing treatment. We make certain each tray fits as it should and that your teeth are shifting at an appropriate rate.
Teeth whitening: My teeth are so dingy. Are professional whitening treatments better than over-the-counter products? Should I use a whitening toothpaste—do they really work?
Professional whitening treatments are more powerful and get better results with surface stains. Zoom!™ is a powerful, in-office procedure that produces fast and dramatic results. As the No. 1 patient-requested professional whitening treatment, Zoom! is only available to dentists to ensure maximum safety and optimal results.
Whitening toothpaste can slightly remove surface stains, such as those caused by drinking coffee or smoking. However, they cannot change the natural color of your teeth, or lighten a stain that goes deeper than a tooth's surface. Look for a brand that has a seal of approval from a reputable dental organization—such as the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal indicates the toothpaste is safe and effective at removing surface stains.

How can cosmetic dentistry make a
profound difference in my life?
Confidence is everything in today’s world, and a beautiful smile can help build it. A smile makeover can be a dramatic change in a patient’s life that improves overall health, as well as everyday relationships.
Some common cosmetic dentistry procedures include tooth whitening, bonding, tooth-colored restorations and fillings, porcelain veneers, orthodontics, dental implants, and more. Some cosmetic procedures can enhance facial esthetics, such as lip support and reduction of wrinkles, for a more youthful appearance.
How does everyone in Hollywood have gorgeous teeth?
Can I have teeth like that?
Most Hollywood A-listers have had cosmetic changes to their smile.
If you’re looking to make subtle alterations to your tooth shape, size, or color, or close spaces, traditional porcelain veneers are a conservative approach to re-creating a natural, improved appearance for your teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain skillfully shaped and bonded to your teeth, creating the perfect smile to enhance your facial features. They also provide strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
