A crown is a restoration that covers, or “caps,” a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are a replacement tooth, custom to match your natural teeth. This procedure is necessary when a tooth is generally broken down and fillings won’t solve the problem.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material designed to cover the front side of the teeth to help improve the appearance. Veneers correct stained, gapped, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. It could change the color, shape, size or length to make it the way that you would like.
Bridges are made to bridge the gap or replace the tooth/teeth between one or more teeth that are missing. Bridges are made up of two or more crowns to hold the teeth on either side of the gap in place. This service will make everyday activities such as eating and talking easier. It helps restore your bite and helps keep the natural shape of your face.

Invisalign®, an FDA-approved system, corrects teeth in a discreet manner, using plastic aligners that are virtually invisible.
