We use only a tooth colored filling material to treat cavities. Some other dental practices still use metal materials to treat cavities. Metal is not only unsightly, but can also be harmful to your health. Your safety is our priority, which is why we won’t expose our patients to potentially harmful materials.
Dr. Chang’s cosmetic dentistry tooth whitening treatments use the latest whitening technological breakthroughs to transform aging, stained, or discolored teeth into bright white sparkling smiles!
Bonding is similar to sculpting individual teeth with a special tooth-like material that looks, acts, and feels like the real thing. Dental bonding is an affordable, quick, and painless way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries. In just one visit with Dr. Chang, you can reveal a more beautiful smile.
You’ve probably heard of dental implants – they’re used to affix artificial teeth to the jaw permanently, providing the most natural replacement for missing teeth. Dr. Chang will assess your oral tissue and jawbone ridge to ensure that they’re in good shape – a requirement for implants. It’s almost like having your natural teeth back again, and you’ll be so glad you looked into dental implants.

Our goal is to give you a smile that you can be confident about and feel proud to show off!
Unsightly metal fillings not only stand out in otherwise beautiful smiles, but there may come a point when the continually-deteriorating tooth’s space exceeds the proportion on which a filling would be effective. Dr. Chang has the natural-looking cosmetic dentistry solution for just such a problem: porcelain crowns, “caps” that eliminate dark metal lines. Is a porcelain crown your cosmetic dentistry solution?
Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that fit right over your own teeth. Dr. Chang can design them to cover gaps, lengthen stubby teeth, brighten dull or yellow teeth, and cover up chips, cracks, and other imperfections.

Your TMJ is a joint that connects your jaw to your skull. The joint acts as a hinge and allows you to open and close your mouth. We use this joint a lot! If your TMJ becomes misaligned even slightly, it can cause headaches, neck pain, backaches, and a lot more! We can diagnose and treat the misalignment of your TMJ.
