Preventative and Restorative Dentistry
Give your teeth a second chance. Enhance your appearance and strengthen your teeth for a lifetime. Tailor your smile with whiter teeth. Choose your desired level of whiteness. Veneers solve problems of worn, chipped, or damaged teeth. Protect your teeth structure and renew their appearance and usefulness with dental crowns.

If your child currently has poor oral health habits, work with your child to change these now. It's much easier to modify these habits in a child than in an adult. Since your child models behavior after you, it follows that you should serve as a positive role model in your oral hygiene habits. A healthy smile, good breath and strong teeth all contribute to a young person's sense of personal appearance, as well as confidence and self-esteem. When your child is 12 months old, you can begin using toothpaste when brushing his or her teeth. However, only use a pea-sized portion on the brush and press it into the bristles so your child won't eat it. And, when the gaps between your child's teeth close, it's important to start flossing. Serve as a good role model by practicing good oral health care habits yourself and schedule frequent regular dental visits, periodontal evaluations and cleanings.
