Porcelain veneers enjoy a wide range of applications and can be used to conceal chips, cracks, and stubborn discoloration, or close gaps and lengthen short teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth. Naturally light-reflecting and translucent, porcelain closely mimics the appearance of natural teeth. Each veneer is customized to match the size, shape, and color you desire. We use only the highest quality materials, ensuring your veneers will blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. Once your veneers are affixed using a strong bonding agent and specialized light, they impart immediate benefits. Porcelain veneers are naturally resistant to staining, so you can enjoy a beautiful, white smile for years to come. Dr. Ramirez's expertise in porcelain veneers draws patients from across the country.
Many of our adult patients express an interest in orthodontic treatment, but are reluctant to wear traditional metal braces. If you are interested in a discreet, quick enhancement of your smile, you may be a good candidate for Six Month Smiles®. Six Month Smiles® utilizes clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, and are nearly invisible to others. This treatment is designed to efficiently straighten anterior teeth, or the teeth that are visible when you smile and speak. A focus on minor tooth movement facilitates a noticeable cosmetic improvement in little time. As the name implies, the course of treatment can be completed in as little as six months. If you have minor orthodontic concerns and would like to achieve a more attractive smile, contact our office to learn more about Six Month Smiles® today.

Porcelain crowns and bridges fill gaps within your smile and restore balance to your bite. We use premium dental porcelain for all our crowns and bridges to provide the look of enamel and underlying dentin. Our porcelain crowns and bridges are strong, functional, and natural-looking. They are custom-crafted in our dental laboratory to match each individual patient's surrounding natural teeth. If you are considering a crown or bridge, our team will work with you to find an option that fits within your budget and aesthetic preferences.
Teeth whitening is a safe, simple, and affordable treatment that yields brilliant results. We are proud to offer both in-office and take-home whitening products to suit the varied needs of our patients. Our in-office power bleaching system can dramatically brighten teeth and remove years of staining in little more than an hour. If you are prone to sensitivity, or are interested in an even more affordable whitening option, you may be a good candidate for an at-home whitening kit. Philips Zoom!™ DayWhite and NiteWhite can be used over a period of days for daytime or nighttime whitening, and each kit comes with a customized tray that holds a potent whitening gel in place.
