Cavity Repair and Fillings

Dental filling are used to even out the surface of the tooth and improve the function of the jaw for biting and chewing. We will remove any tooth decay and fill in the empty area.


Crack Repair and Filling

Cracked teeth can be caused by decay, chewing hard food, trauma, or an old repair could crack again. It is important to see your dentist quickly after a crack is discovered to prevent further damage to your tooth.

Should I get teeth whitening kits from the store?2022-04-19T13:00:20-04:00
In-store whitening kits could help with light staining for a short period of time. Professional teeth whiteners are safe and much more effective in a brighter and longer lasting smile. Another advantage of professional teeth whitening is it is done under the supervision of a dental professional. In most cases, it is worth the extra cost for long-lasting and safe results. Teeth whitening is safe when done correctly.
