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…

What’s the Story on Lateral Incisors?

The laterals, which are the teeth on either side of the front two teeth in your mouth, are sometimes missing and sometimes misshapen. Most often, they are narrower than what would be expected, leaving spaces on one or both sides of the teeth. Except for wisdom teeth, and an occasional lower bicuspid, the laterals (teeth [...]

Behind the Mask – Your Smile Still Counts

Despite the fact that everyone is wearing masks that cover up our smiles, many people are using this time to take care of their mouths.  Dentists across the country have reported that they are exceptionally busy.  Part of this may be attributed to people having more time on their hands, they are not going on [...]
