What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a preferred treatment option for many patients missing one or more teeth. A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root made of medical-grade titanium that serves as an anchor for a strong, natural-looking tooth restoration. Patients with dental implants can eat, smile, and laugh with confidence. You deserve a smile like nature intended. Ask us about dental implants today, or call our office and ask for a free consultation.
How can I safely whiten my teeth?
Teeth whitening, one of our most requested services, is a simple ways to brighten discolored or yellowed teeth. Our teeth whitening procedures can brighten your teeth up to nine shades. We offer Zoom! Teeth Whitening in our office or take-home whitening trays.
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive analysis and redesign of your gum tissue and/or teeth to create the best smile for your unique appearance. Smile makeovers involve many aspects of dentistry with a special emphasis on the appearance of individual teeth and the overall harmony and balance of your smile. The result is a dazzling, confidence-boosting smile that can enhance your personal and professional image.
Are braces the only option for my crooked teeth?
Not necessarily. Instant orthodontics is a procedure that straightens teeth using porcelain veneers or crowns instead of braces. With porcelain veneers, we can close gaps between teeth, correct overcrowding, and even mask imperfections in as few as two visits. Strong, natural-looking porcelain veneers last for years and can give you the dazzling smile you’ve always desired.
We also offer Invisalign, the clear, removable orthodontia for the mature professional. Imagine having the straight smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle and appearance of bulky metal braces. We can make that dream a reality. Learn more about Invisalign today!
What if I really do need braces?
You don’t have to sacrifice image to improve your smile. Many patients choose Invisalign to straighten their teeth inconspicuously and without the discomfort and appearance of traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually reposition your teeth into a straight, healthy smile. Dr. Koorosh Shamtoub and Dr. Abraham Ganz have experience transforming smiles with Invisalign. Learn more about Invisalign in our patient library.
What can you do about missing teeth?
Not only does a full set of teeth enhance your self-esteem, it also increases the longevity of your natural teeth and bone structure. We offer several procedures to replace missing teeth, including dental implants, bridges, and natural-looking partial or full dentures. Contact us to schedule an appointment so that we can evaluate your situation and discuss treatment options that suit your lifestyle and meet your goals.
What different payment options do you provide?
We work very hard to help you fit the dental care you want into your budget. Your payment options include cash, check, or credit card. We also offer some extended payment plans, including Capital One Health Care, and CareCredit.
What should I do if I have an after-hours dental emergency?
