Veneers (Lumineers)
LUMINEERS ® BY CERINATE ® are porcelain veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. Your LUMINEERS dentist can apply these contact lens-thin "smile shapers" to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual. LUMINEERS can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.

LUMINEERS are contact lens-thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove painful tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.) LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.

LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain unavailable anywhere other than the Cerinate Smile Design Studio. In just 2-3 visits to your LUMINEERS dentist, you can have a custom-made smile that is clinically proven to last over 20 years - and it is completely reversible since your natural tooth structure is still intact! Get your perfect smile today!
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy or Root Canal Treatment is a dental procedure to fix a tooth by removing the pulp chamber of the tooth and filling it with a suitable filling material. A root canal is usually performed when the tooth cannot be filled or restored any other way because the decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has become infected.

Extractions
The process or act of removing a tooth or tooth parts.
ZOOM2! In Office Bleaching
This very safe teeth whitening procedure is easily performed in our dental office. The ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening gel is applied to the enamel (the protective coating) of the tooth and heated with a special lamp. The heat breaks down the gel and releases oxygen into the teeth’s dentin (the main, hard part of the tooth). This oxygen bleaches the teeth without harming them.

The results of this tooth whitening procedure are whiter teeth that are fundamentally free of coffee, tea, soft drink, wine, or tobacco stains!
Take home bleaching
All that you need to do is place the bleaching gel provided into the trays and insert the trays over your teeth so that they fit snugly. A daily, thirty minute session can result in a whiter, brighter smile. How white and bright depends on how many days you choose to wear the trays.
Partial Dentures
Fixed Partial Denture
A fixed partial denture is a prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth cemented or attached to the abutment teeth or implant abutments adjacent to the space.

Removable Partial Denture
A removable partial denture (removable bridge) is a prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth that can be removed by the patient.
