Dental Implants
Get that much-needed dose of self-confidence by taking advantage of our great dental implant services.

Dental Implants are surgically-installed prosthetic teeth that offer you a more permanent, effective and great-looking solution to missing areas in your smile.

ImplantMany times a missing tooth or teeth can drastically affect your smile’s appearance, taking away your desire to smile, laugh or even open your mouth for fear of unwanted attention or embarrassment. The vacant area can even have a negative impact on your ability to pronounce certain words and eat certain kinds of food.

A professionally-installed dental implant can help to change all that, providing you with an esthetically-pleasing replacement that restores both form and function to your smile. Dr. Capalbo is educated and experienced in all the latest advances in dental implant technology, and can give you a great-looking implant that will increase your confidence and improve your life!

Dental implants are custom-tailored to fit your specific oral dimensions, creating a beautiful looking tooth that conforms to the texture, color and natural symmetry of your existing teeth. Unlike bridges, which depend on the adjacent teeth for support, implants are designed to match your existing bone structure and are surgically placed within your gums and jawbone, creating a strong foundation that lasts for many years to come.

Dr. Capalbo and his devoted dental team enjoy providing their patients with long-lasting teeth that both look and feel natural, and we can quickly determine if dental implant technology is right for you!

Boost your self-esteem, improve your comfort and defend your oral health by trusting a method proven to succeed. Dr. Capalbo provides dental implant procedures that are safe and performed with the precision and the care you deserve. You can feel at ease knowing your teeth are in the hands of our superior dental professionals, people that genuinely care about your teeth’s future.

Cosmetic Dentistry
You want your smile to look its best, and that's why we offer superior cosmetic dentistry services that will keep your smile glowing!

Cosmetic DentistryWe provide all the latest in smile-enhancing technology, including professional teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, veneers, tooth-colored fillings and much, much more. You deserve to have beautiful teeth that will get you noticed, and we will do everything in our power to provide you with an eye-opening smile.

There are currently many different aspects of modern cosmetic dentistry. Tooth-colored fillings, for example, allow you to get rid of unsightly traditional metal fillings and replace them with fillings that match the color of their teeth. These fillings are easily-installed in your teeth and are virtually unnoticeable, providing you with a great natural look.

Porcelain crowns and bridges also play an integral role in cosmetic dentistry because they help both repair and brighten your smile. Professionally-placed porcelain crowns serve to fix damaged teeth that function as and appear like real teeth, leaving little to no trace of completed dental work. Bridges are used to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and help to provide you with a fuller, more complete-looking smile! Anchored into place by the two adjacent teeth, a bridge utilizes porcelain crowns to fill the gap and create the appearance of a naturally-existing tooth.

Lumineers are porcelain veneers that can help to improve your smile, and are used to correct gaps, cracks, discoloration and any other imperfection you may be unhappy with. Lumineers are safe, painless and are custom made to fit your teeth, providing you with a great cosmetic option!


Teeth Whitening
One of the best ways to remove stains and discoloration from your teeth is to ask about our professional teeth whitening services. Our staff uses powerful teeth whitening methods that can give you drastically-whiter and brighter teeth in a very short period of time. Be sure to find out about our free whitening for life program!



Lumineers / Veneers
Two of the most innovative dental technologies on the market today are Lumineers and Veneers, powerful yet easy ways to add personality to your smile.

We provide unsurpassable Lumineer and traditional Veneer services to anyone looking to take advantage of these exceptional procedures, both proven to deliver undeniably amazing results. Both services offer a way to correct flaws in your teeth and to create a more symmetrical, more fluid-like smile you'll be proud to show off to everyone you meet!

Traditional veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells specially-made to fit on and conform to the front of your teeth. These shells are generally made of either porcelain or a resin composite and are bonded to teeth to change their appearance. Veneers are designed to alter the shape, size and length of your teeth while improving their color and providing a natural, un-tampered look.

Veneers are often recommended to repair any cracks, gaps, misalignment and / or discoloration that currently exist on the surface of your teeth. Veneer application generally requires the removal of a small amount of enamel from the targeted area before attachment. This, in turn, requires the use of a local anesthetic to mitigate any pain or discomfort (usually minimal) that may result from the procedure.

Lumineers perform the same cosmetic functions as traditional veneers, yet require no enamel removal or anesthetic prior to installation. Though similar to veneers, porcelain Lumineers provide a brighter glow to your teeth and are virtually pain-free. And unlike veneers, which must be installed tooth-by-tooth, Lumineers can be placed on your teeth all at once, allowing you a faster and more convenient experience. They've even been proven to last for over 20 years, keeping your smile brilliant for years and years to come!

Dr. Capalbo and his team are are well-versed and experienced in precision veneer and Lumineer treatments. We would love to talk with you about the benefits these amazing, life-changing procedures can have for your smile!

If you have any additional questions about the veneer and lumineer applications, or would like to schedule an appointment, contact us today!



Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Do you have a decayed, damaged or missing tooth? Is it affecting the true potential of your beautiful smile?

If you answered yes to either question, perhaps it's time to consider our porcelain crown and bridge services. Porcelain crowns and bridges play an essential role in cosmetic dentistry, and are sometimes the best and only option when it comes to fixing your teeth, and Dr. Capalbo knows how to put the stellar back into your smile!

Porcelain crowns are used to return natural function and appearance to a badly decayed or damaged tooth. Often termed a "cap", these beneficial devices help to protect the damaged tooth, to prevent any further damage or decay, and to provide an esthetically-pleasing solution to what may have previously been an unsightly, perhaps unattractive area.

We use porcelain crowns because they provide a more natural look to your smile, creating more of a realistic flow and blend than traditional crown technology. Porcelain crowns appear extremely similar to your natural teeth in terms of both color and texture, making it difficult to identify and pick out from the rest.

BridgeThe purpose of a bridge is to occupy an area left vacant by a missing tooth, to "bridge the gap" as it were, and provide the feeling and appearance of continuity in your teeth. Bridges are installed into the gap using the two surrounding teeth, which serve as both the anchors and long-term support for the new prosthetic tooth. The prosthetics we use generally consist of a porcelain crown or crowns properly sized to comfortably fit in the empty area. The result is a great looking tooth that looks and feels as natural as the rest of your existing teeth.

We offer our patients high-quality porcelain crowns and bridges that transform the way they feel about their teeth. Dr. Capalbo and his friendly, well-trained staff work hard to maximize your comfort, helping you feel relaxed, as we provide you with unbeatable dental care that fits within your budget. Our crown and bridge treatments are designed to be as pain-free as possible, and our biggest desire is to see you satisfied.

Your oral health, freedom, and peace-of-mind are important to us, and we hope that you consider us for your next porcelain crown or bridge treatment. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!



Tooth-Colored Fillings
If you're tired of your unattractive metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings may help.

If you’re afraid or embarrassed to smile, laugh or simply move your head back, fearing people will notice the unsightly metal fillings in your teeth, then it may be time to consider the benefits of tooth-colored fillings.

Our tooth-colored fillings service provides you with virtually invisible enamel-colored fillings that blend in with the natural color of your teeth. Whether you’re looking to have filling work done or are just tired of looking at your old silver amalgam fillings in the mirror, this amazing material will give you great looking teeth while delivering the structural support and oral health benefits your smile deserves.

Tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin that is both safe, easy to apply and proven to last as long as traditional metal fillings. After the cavity is cleaned and prepped, or the old metal filling is removed, the composite is gently placed and shaped to match the general look and texture of the affected tooth. A special UV light is then used to quickly and easily harden the material, creating a superior quality, great looking filling nearly impossible to detect!

There are many ways to improve the appearance of your teeth and give yourself the smile you’ve only dreamt of, but none perhaps as simple and as easy as a tooth-colored fillings treatment. Our professional dental staff, led by the accomplished and experienced Dr. Capalbo, will take you through the tooth-colored fillings process and explain how this unique procedure may just the right fit for your teeth.

So if your self-conscious about your metal fillings and tired holding back the full potential of your smile, contact us today! Dr. Capalbo and his friendly, courteous staff can install your tooth-colored fillings in just one visit and quickly return the confidence to your smile.


Root Canals / Extractions
The thought of having a root canal or tooth extraction often makes people a little nervous, and that's why we do everything we can to make you feel safe, comfortable and relaxed during the entire course of your treatment.

Both treatments are sometimes necessary towards the longevity and maintenance of your overall oral health. Severely-damaged teeth increase the possibility of infection and can threaten the health of the surrounding teeth and gums, potentially leading to the need for more drastic and costly dental treatments down the road.

Root canals and extractions are fairly common and simple procedures and are many times essential components of good, long-lasting dental health.

A root canal is generally performed to save or prolong the life of a badly damaged or decayed tooth. This crucial procedure, typically completed in just one dental visit, is used to remove the soft tissue and nerve endings from an affected tooth and halt the potential for infection. After removal the area is cleaned, filled and sealed, whereupon a crown or other restorative method is used to return its original functionality and appearance.

Root canal treatments are relatively harmless procedures and are usually performed with the application of a local anesthetic, which minimizes or eliminates the potential for pain. Over-the counter medications, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, are generally recommended to treat any future pain or discomfort.

Another way to treat a badly-damaged tooth is to have it completely removed. Tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that can rid you of a problem tooth once and for all and can be safely and easily performed by Dr. Capalbo in one of our offices.

Upon consultation we can determine which procedure presents the best option for you, your smile and your long-term oral health. We will provide you with a thorough and complete examination and discuss with you the reasons a root canal or tooth extraction may be the best, most necessary course of action.

Our number one priority is your comfort, and we always aim to deliver the most soothing and relaxing environment possible to each and every person that walks through our door. Contact us today to see if our high-quality root canal and extraction services are right for you.
