Cosmetic Dentistry
Our experienced dentists help patients enhance their smiles by offering the latest in cosmetic treatments including Zoom! teeth whitening, Invisalign, and natural-looking dental implants.

Restorative Dentistry
Restorative treatments preserve your natural teeth wherever possible. Whether it be tooth-colored fillings, same-day crowns (made in our onsite dental lab), or natural-looking dental implants – our team will restore your smile to health and beauty by leveraging the recent advancements in dental technologies.

Dental Implants
As the premium option for replacing missing teeth, dental implants not only improve the appearance of your smile, they also improve your oral and overall health. Matching your natural teeth in color, size and shape, dental implants help restore your bite force, preserve your jawbone, and improve your confidence.

Invisalign offers discretion, comfort, and freedom to enjoy your favorite foods – all while getting a perfectly aligned smile. Our dentists have years of specialized experience in using these clear aligners to create beautiful, brilliant smiles.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Painless, professional-grade teeth whitening gives patients a megawatt smile – in just a single visit. Safer and more effective than store-bought whitening kits, Zoom! teeth whitening can bring out the best in your smile in just about an hour.

Periodontal Disease
Gum disease has the potential to lead to serious health problems. Early detection, diagnosis, and treatment for periodontal disease are essential to maintaining good oral health – and overall health.

CEREC Crowns
CEREC crowns – also known as same-day crowns – are available at Elite Family Dental Care. Using computer assisted design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM), your permanent crown can be made while you wait, eliminating the need for multiple visits to restore a damaged tooth.

Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are included in our preventative dental care. At your bi-annual checkup, you will be screened for any warning signs. Our digital imaging technologies also allow for the identification of symptoms beneath the surface of the mouth, cheeks, and gums.

Emergency Dentistry
Emergency dental services are available for patients who experience a loose crown, knocked-out tooth, or trauma to the teeth and jaws.
