What services should I expect a local dentist near me to offer?

If your teeth are generally healthy but you are unhappy with the way they look, we offer cosmetic and orthodontic treatment options, including in-office and at-home teeth whitening kits to make your teeth pearly white, veneers to camouflage chipped teeth, and braces and Invisalign® aligners to correct misaligned teeth. Many patients put off dental treatment because they fear going to the dentist and have severe dental anxiety. Our caring staff and compassionate dentists can use nitrous oxide or anesthesia to keep you feeling relaxed and comfortable during complex procedures. Call today for more information about our sedation dentistry services.
