About Our Clinic
Zoom In-Office Teeth Whitening
Zoom in-office teeth whitening is a popular dental procedure used all over the world. The procedure consists of our dentist applying a clear whitening gel to your teeth and placing you beneath an ultraviolet light that is focused on the teeth. The light quickens the action of the gel, a hydrogen peroxide consistency, which begins to whiten the teeth. The benefit of this treatment is that the upper layer of enamel on the teeth, as well as the inner stains, are considerably cleared. This procedure is a quick and simple process that can be performed in-office during each of your dental appointments.
The invisalign system was created as a modification of traditional braces. Invisalign is a clear aligner, which makes the braces appear somewhat invisible on the teeth. They are made of a firm, transparent material, which gradually aligns your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign fits right over the teeth and pulls them together from all angles, allowing for not only a more snug fit over the teeth, but also a more encompassing adjustment.
The invisalign treatment is advantageous for those who wish to have their teeth aligned without wearing traditional braces, which contains very noticeable metal wiring. Our dentist will gladly assist you in this procedure.
When it comes to basic dental procedures, teeth cleaning is the most commonly performed procedure. This is due to the majority of dental treatments requiring the teeth to be cleaned first, before the rest of the procedure can continue.
Teeth whitening treatment is a popular cosmetic procedure that many people receive in order to brighten their smile and remove surface stains. The teeth whitening procedure, here at our office, is crafted to make you feel comfortable and at ease while your smile gets a brighter makeover.
Cure Abscess: Abscessed Tooth Treatment
An abscessed tooth occurs when the part of the tooth which touches the gums, or the gums themselves, get infected and pus accumulates inside. This is an infection that can spread to the base of the tooth, and cause further problems if a dentist does not treat it within its earliest stages. The causes of an abscessed tooth include poor dental hygiene, not properly brushing, not properly flossing and general bacteria in the mouth.
Our dentist can treat and cure abscess in a tooth or teeth, and well as provide expertise tips in preventing dental infections.
Dental crowns are considered the solution for many dental issues. They are used as a replacement for the natural surface of a tooth, which may have deteriorated, weakened over time or had been removed due to surgery. Some procedures that lead to needing dental crowns include:
- Root canal treatment, since it often requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed
- Chipped or broken teeth which are immediately visible while smiling or talking
- Weaker and damage-prone teeth at risk of breaking, if not protected
- Dental cosmetic reasons

Our Dental Imaging Guide
During the past three decades, dentistry has witnessed great advances in all its branches. Consequently, the need for more precise diagnostic tools, specifically imaging methods, has become mandatory. From simple intraoral periapical x-rays, to advanced imaging techniques like magnetic resonance imaging, cone beam computed tomography, computed tomography and ultrasound have also found their place in modern dentistry. Moving from analog to digital radiography has not only made the process simpler and faster, but has also made image storage, manipulation and retrieval easier. Three-dimensional imaging has made the complex cranio-facial structures more accessible for examination and for the early and accurate diagnosis of conditions that range from mild to severe. Some of these innovative technologies will be discussed in this article.
