  • Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening is perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure. Professional teeth bleaching can enhance the brightness and color of your smile.
  • Dental Veneers– These are composite or porcelain laminates that are adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks. They can dramatically improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may also appropriate if you have gaps between your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening.
  • Braces– Orthodontics can improve the appearance of teeth in children and adults who have misalignment or teeth with wide gaps. Products like Invisalign are nearly invisible and exceedingly more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces.
  • Inlays/Onlays– Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain or composite materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a “filling” to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage.
  • Composite Bonding– Chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth can be repaired or corrected with composite bonding. A dental composite material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured, and hardened with a high-intensity light.
  • Dental Implants– With a 95% success rate, dental implants are tiny titanium artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic dentistry to compensate for tooth loss. A custom restoration is then affixed to the implant to complete your smile.
  • Gum-lifts (gingivectomy)– This procedure involves the removal of gum tissue to make the teeth appear longer and the gum line more even. An uneven gum line can make the teeth appear to have different lengths, which detracts from an attractive smile.
  • Smile Makeover– Typically one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures — such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening — may be required for several teeth in both the upper and lower arches in order to achieve the perfect smile.
  • Botox and JuvedermBotox is a safe and effective FDA-approved medication most commonly used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines by decreasing the movement of muscles in troubled areas. It’s minimally invasive and results can typically last anywhere from 3-5 months on average. Juvederm is a smooth gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid which, when injected underneath the skin, can add volume and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. Not only will Botox and Juvéderm enhance your facial features, but they can also be used to inhibit jaw clenching. The injections relax certain facial muscles which stop the clenching and associated pain.

Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening


Having a smile that is bright and white is something that many people strive for. A smile that someone can be proud of is wanted by many, as a beautiful smile makes a lasting, positive impression. Unfortunately, life has a way of leaving evidence of its existence, and our smiles are no different. Over the years, our smiles accumulate stains, affecting the overall aesthetic and brightness of our smiles. You may have tried traditional over the counter treatments to brighten your smile, but may have gotten results you were not happy with, or no results whatsoever. Thankfully, Dr. Gene Drake and Dr. Jayson Voto are able to whiten the smiles of their patients with ease with teeth whitening.

There are multiple factors that play a hand in dulling our smiles. Things such as coffee, wine, tea, tobacco products, certain medications, and even genetics all play a role in our smiles losing its luminescence. Though you may feel as though there is nothing you can do, our doctors are trained and experienced in whitening smiles, and there is no doubt they will be able to whiten yours!

All you have to do is fill the trays with the whitening gel, and wear them for an allotted amount of time each day. After about two weeks, you will see the full results.

We also offer in-office whitening to our patients, being able to whiten their smiles in as little as an hour. Putting a whitening gel on your smile, as you sit and wait, your smile is brightened up to ten shades!
