Our Dental Services


Veneers are designed to cover the front surface of teeth and offer an immediate transformation, correcting imperfections like discoloration, gaps, chips, and misalignments.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a restorative procedure in which a “cap” goes over an injured or decayed tooth to protect it from further damage and to restore your smile.

Emergency Dentistry

A painful oral condition, a cracked tooth, or knocked-out teeth are all reasons to seek urgent care treatment from an experienced Clarks Summit dentist.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Improving the overall appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. Treatments include teeth whitening, Invisalign, veneers, dental implants, full mouth reconstruction, and more!

Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanently implanted prosthetic teeth that look and function like natural teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most requested and economical cosmetic dentistry services because it has the potential to dramatically improve your smile in a single dental visit.

Endodontics & Root Canal

One of the most common endodontic treatments is a root canal procedure in which we treat the soft tissue inside your tooth to save and avoid pulling it.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction may include any combination of procedures, including Root Canal Therapy, Periodontal treatment, and Fillings.


Invisalign is a series of removable, custom aligner trays that fit snugly over your teeth. You can get a stunning smile quickly and discreetly without the inconvenience of metal braces.
