Small dental problems that are put off become big problems over time.

Sometimes you get so busy taking care of your loved ones that you may have neglected your own dental health, or put it off due to circumstance.

Replace silver fillings

You may consider replacing silver fillings not only because they’re ugly, but because they can be dangerous.

White composite fillings match your tooth color.

They’re stain-resistant, safe, strong and non-allergenic.


Sometimes decay overcomes a tooth, and the tooth itself must be replaced. Think of dental crowns as a replacement cap for your tooth.

In general, a porcelain crown will take 2 visits, and maybe a total of 2-3 hours.

Dental implants

dental implant is a replacement tooth that is permanently anchored into the jawbone.

It’s permanent, looks natural, and works and feels like real teeth.
