If someone comes to me and said I want a straight healthy smile, I'd look at them and see what they would need first. Is it something fairly simple that can be done with clear aligners like invisalign type of treatment that can be fairly short time treatment span where you can't see it more cosmetic or is it something more involved where you need fixed type braces brackets retainers, things like that to move it or is it something that like that it's a space between your teeth. could you do like bonding to close a space between your teeth that's done within an hour or two and you're done, that could be an option also or it could be something like malposition teeth that could be porcelain veneers, that may be a lot faster and people may opt for that more than going through the longer time with invisalign, fixed orthodontics or something like that So, it depends upon the problem, depends upon the solution. Bonding, veneers, being a lot faster. Invisalign, fixed orthodontics being take a bit longer.

Dental Checkups And Exams
Regular dental cleanings and exams allow us to keep your smile clean and healthy all year long. They also give us the chance to detect signs of problems so that we can treat them right away, often in the easiest, least expensive way possible.
Gum Disease Treatment
Preventing gum disease is an easy way to keep your smile healthy. The problem is that many people do not realize they have it and dismiss the minor symptoms as normal.
Regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings help, but our skilled team of dentists and hygienists are trained to recognize the symptoms and treat gum disease.
We use state-of-the-art technology to help detect and treat early-stage and late-stage gum disease. Our LANAP procedure, for example, uses a laser to reduce pain and speed up healing.
