Teeth Whitening & Veneers

Our teeth whitening services brighten your teeth, correcting stains or dark spots caused by injury, tobacco use, age, or food. This is accomplished through in-office whitening treatments, as well as trays and gels that you wear when you are elsewhere. Veneers are another way to whiten your teeth while closing unwanted spaces, straightening crooked teeth, and creating your ideal smile through what we call "instant orthodontics."

Implants & Mini Implants

These dental implants are used to permanently replace any teeth that you are missing. Also, they can be used to stabilize your removable denture.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are conservative solutions to crowns. They can be used in the event that a traditional filling is not an adequate solution to your dental needs.

Invisible Braces

The Invisalign™ system employs aligners that are custom-fitted to your teeth. These nearly-invisible aligners straighten your teeth without causing the discomfort of traditional braces.  There are no unsightly metal bands, wires, or brackets. They are easily removed for special occasions, or when you need to brush, floss, eat, or drink.

Bridges & Crowns

These dental options are used as replacements when you are missing one or more teeth. For bridges, we create crowns on both sides of your missing teeth, and then fix a replacement tooth between them. This is constructed as one permanent dental unit.

Dentures & Partials

In order to replace your missing teeth, we may need to employ full or partial dentures. These provide both functional and aesthetic support that is sure to restore your smile.


Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a colorless gas with a pleasant taste and odor. People first inhale 100% oxygen through a soft nose piece or mask. Then, nitrous oxide is slowly mixed in with the oxygen. Nitrous oxide usually starts to work in less than five minutes. Your dentist will adjust the mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen to a level to ensure your comfort.

When used for mild (conscious) sedation, nitrous oxide may make you feel:

  • Relaxed
  • Warm
  • Pleasant
  • Happy or silly

You also may feel:

  • Tingling in your hands and feet
  • Numbness in your mouth, feet or hands
  • Heaviness or lightness
  • Changes in the way you hear sounds (everything sounds far away or muffled or you may hear a sound described as "white noise")
  • Sleepiness
  • A sense that everything is wonderful
  • Nausea
  • In rare cases, anxiety

Nitrous oxide does not put you to sleep. You can still respond to your dentist's requests and answer questions. Your speech may be slightly slurred, and your responses may be slower than usual. In general, you will be relaxed and cooperative. You will know when you are receiving an injection, and you may even feel it. But you probably won't care. Your breathing and heartbeat will still be normal.

Nitrous oxide is very safe when used by a properly trained dentist. Side effects may include headache, nausea or vomiting. While you are receiving nitrous oxide, tell your dentist right away about any discomfort or anxiety you feel or concerns you have. You should never be left alone in the dental treatment room when you are receiving nitrous oxide.

If you have side effects, your dentist will turn off the nitrous oxide and allow you to breathe oxygen for up to five minutes. This flushes the nitrous oxide out of your blood. You should feel normal and alert after breathing the oxygen. However, your motor skills and attention can be affected for as long as 15 minutes after you stop breathing the nitrous oxide. If you leave the dental office sooner than that, ask your dentist if it is okay for you to drive.
