Invisalign retainers are custom made to fit every detail of your smile. Every Invisalign case requires a face-to-face appointment with an official Invisalign providing doctor.

Sealants protect the vulnerable areas by sealing out plaque and food and acting as a barrier to prevent cavities. A sealant creates a smooth, easy to clean surface.
Fillings are used to repair teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and then filled with either a composite (tooth-colored) filling or amalgam (silver) filling. Each type of filling material has it’s own advantages and disadvantages. Dr. Stephenson is happy to discuss with you the best options for restoring your teeth.
Crowns are used to restore teeth that have fractured or decayed when a filling is no longer an option. They are also used for cosmetic purposes when a patient would like to restore their smile with natural looking porcelain crowns that can reshape teeth to cover chips, stains, and old fillings. Crowns cover the entire visible surface of your tooth and add durability and strength.
Porcelain dental veneers are commonly used for cosmetic dentistry. Veneers can correct teeth imperfections including chips, stains, cracks, and misalignments.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. The replacement tooth sits on the implant. They are used to replace one or more missing teeth without damaging the good, healthy surrounding teeth. Implants can also be used to help stabilize a removable partial or denture.
