View Section Contents

We have the ability to provide the options you are seeking for your cosmetic dentistry needs, including all-porcelain crowns and veneers. We will work closely with you and our lab to provide you with the smile you have always wanted!

Teeth Whitening

A lot of attention has been drawn to “laser” or “in office” whitening. Because these methods are much more expensive and do not have as long of a lasting effect we choose to make custom trays and provide our patients with proven whitening gels. The truth is that the most effective teeth whitening regimen occurs when the patient wears custom trays with whitening gel in the trays for 30-45 minutes per day over a 3 or 4 week period.

Orthodontics

Doctor Bart started treating orthodontic cases over 20 years ago because so many patients kept asking, “Why don’t you do it?”. He regularly treats routine cases and if your case is more complicated or if you would prefer a specialist, he can refer you to one of the many excellent orthodontists in the area.

Intraoral Photography

We use advanced digital x-rays and intraoral cameras and will be able to show you what and why you may need certain dental procedures.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is when we remove the front outer surface of the tooth and replace it with a life-like porcelain covering. We do this in cases where the patient wants to improve the color and appearance of their teeth. They can be very white (think movie star) or simply natural (my favorite choice).

Dental Implants

Implants have become more mainstream in the past several years and have become the treatment of choice in many situations. They can often replace the need for bridges and our patients have been pleased with having the option to make this choice for their dental needs.

Botox

Doctor James has the training to treat patients with Botox for both cosmetic and therapeutic needs. Besides reducing wrinkles, many patients find relief for sore muscles and jaw pain by the appropriate application of Botox to the affected muscles.
