Tired of your misshapen, mismatched, or uneven teeth? Veneers will provide you with your best cosmetic result. A younger, brighter more beautiful smile awaits, without the over-reduction necessary with full coverage crowns.
Ask if you are a candidate.
Cone Beam CT (CBCT)
The most advanced technology in diagnostic imaging. This allows the dentist to see the tooth and surrounding bone in 3 dimensions as opposed to traditional 2D x-rays. How does this benefit you? With the ability to see the tooth/bone from inside out and at different levels, the clinical outcome of your procedure whether that is Implant Placement, Root Canal Therapy, or Airway Mapping will be vastly improved. If your current dentist or dental specialist has not invested in this technology yet, we would be happy to download your image(s) onto a CD so that you can give it to them. This will ensure that they have all the information they need to better manage your Oral Health.
