Vaccinated and Ready to Get Out? No Better Time to Look and Feel Your Best!

It's been quite a year dealing with Covid, but with the help of vaccines and other safety measures we are seeing each other in person. Once again, we want to look our best!  Not just hair and clothes, but our teeth should look great, too.  Whether is getting together with friends and family, or business [...]

Would you like to look younger and thinner?

Who wouldn't!  It seems like there has been a great deal of research on the subject, and short of a face-lift or a diet, respectively, smiling seems to fit the bill.   "Psychology Today" recently reported that studies at UKMC showed that among other positive attributes, people who smiled were perceived as being younger than [...]

Don’t Settle for Old, Dark Gray Fillings

We're often asked about the use of porcelain in dentistry, in terms of both color/shade and strength. Porcelain is most frequently used for crowns and veneers, the crowns used to cover the tooth completely (around the front, sides, and back, like a "cap"), while the veneers covers the front on the tooth, overlapping the edge.

Watch Us on TV Each Week For Incredible Smile Makeovers

We're happy to be part of the Tegna/NBC channel 3 team.

Patients Appreciate Our High-Level of Safety Protocols

We've had a number of patients compliment us on how we've responded to the Covid issues. (These can be seen on our site on both the first page and under patient comments).

Porcelain is the material of choice for beautiful veneers

I frequently am asked about the materials that are used for veneers, dental restorations that can rejuvenate a smile. There are some wonderful choices, each with its own characteristics, with porcelain dominating the field.  Though composite plastic material can be used, it is not a common choice when the entire facial - or outside - [...]

Lateral incisors and other dental mysteries involving missing or “funny looking” teeth…

We often meet with patients who come to us with missing teeth or ones that seem to be malformed.  These are not teeth that have suffered from decay or fracturing, but are either congenitally missing (missing from birth) or not developed "normally."  They are most often upper lateral incisors (the teeth next to the central [...]

Our Feature in Boomer Magazine Jan/Feb 2021

With the new year upon us (finally!), there are many choices to be made, many that center on our physical well-being.  Our concerns change over the years, including things that happen as we age like arthritis and hair loss, over which we have little control.  One thing we can affect is our dental health.  Thankfully, [...]

An Easy Fix for a “Gummy” Smile

Over the past few months, we've seen a number of new patients who have wanted their gums "raised" or changed. In some cases, they've always had a "gummy" smile, while others noted that it occurred after having braces, which often "encourages" the tissue to cover over part of the teeth. A few people have said [...]
