Most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth do not realize the numerous ways cosmetic care can heal a smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth, stained or discolored teeth, and “gummy” smiles. Dr. Nick and Dr. Ashley create a customized treatment plan for you, based on your age, your goals, and your financial comfort level.
Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Placement of porcelain veneers is a conservative cosmetic treatment that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have crooked teeth, chipped teeth, gaps in teeth, or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution. Dr. Nick and Dr. Ashley will skillfully create a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance, as well as your self-esteem.
Porcelain Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that cover natural tooth structure to improve color and shape of teeth. Veneers are a more conservative approach compared to crowns, as the patient is able to keep the majority of their tooth intact. Through the use of digital impressions, we can decrease the wait time for patients and provide a higher quality product. By using only American labs and highest quality porcelain or ceramic veneers, we are able individualize the smile to each patient.
A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile. We offer both an in-office laser whitening procedure and two distinct at-home options. With in-office tooth whitening the patient can have a whiter smile in 1 hour and our at-home options can tailor whitening to patients wishes based upon time and cost.

If you have lost a tooth, a large gap in your smile can create significant problems for your dental health if left uncorrected. Gradually, your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to chew efficiently in the area of the missing tooth. Neighboring teeth may begin to move into the gap, resulting in discomfort, pain, and more future problems . After some preparation of the two neighboring teeth, crowns are created for them. A prosthetic tooth (or pontic) is fused between the crowns. Fixed bridges literally “bridge the gap” in your smile. Dr. Nick and Dr. Ashley create a functional, natural-looking bridge to correct your smile, to restore your bite, and to alleviate your discomfort.
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Dr. Nick and Dr. Ashley use a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in both shape and color.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? You may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned-out portion of the tooth. With new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a longer-lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material will be bonded to your teeth for a stronger restoration.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by Dr. Nick and Dr. Ashley so it resembles a natural tooth, correcting chipped, broken, stained, or discolored teeth and, in some cases, gaps. While it’s less of an investment than porcelain veneers, bonding doesn’t last as long and can sometimes become stained from foods and beverages. We encourage you to come in and talk with Dr. Nick and Dr. Ashley about your options.
Do you have a “gummy” smile? If so, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic contouring of your gum tissue. Using a laser to minimize recovery time, Dr. Nick and Dr. Ashley can give you a more aesthetic appearance when you smile by shaping and sculpting your gums. This procedure can make a dramatic difference in the look of your smile, especially when combined with other forms of cosmetic dentistry.
