Invisalign

Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth, without braces.  It works through a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. 
                                                                       
Invisalign is a revolutionary way to help you get even, straight teeth without noticeable, painful metal braces. Virtually undetectable, Invisalign aligners are made of strong, clear plastic that gradually guides your teeth into perfect alignment. Unlike metal braces, they have no wires or brackets on which your lips or gums can snag. Tooth impressions are made, from which Invisalign develops customized aligners that will slide directly over your teeth. Aligners are replaced every two weeks as your teeth shift into place, and they are typically worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 12 to 48 months—no longer than you would wear traditional metal braces. To learn more about Invisalign, please contact us today.

Zoom!

The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth in about one hour while you relax at your dentist's office.  Zoom! teeth whitening is a popular procedure on ABC's reality television show Extreme Makeover.

The Zoom! in-office, same day teeth whitening system is safe, fast, and convenient. Zoom! whitening gel contains hydrogen peroxide and whitens teeth by about six to 10 shades in one brief office visit. The gel is carefully applied to the enamel (the tooth's protective coating) and heated by a special Zoom! whitening lamp. After one hour, the gel is removed, and a five-minute fluoride treatment is administered. The end result is brighter, whiter teeth. With simple, regular home touch-ups and careful maintenance, a beautiful Zoom! smile can last indefinitely. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
