Teeth Whitening Bleaching

Enjoy the look of a whiter, more radiant smile with a teeth-whitening treatment. We offer different bleaching/Whitening options. This is the ideal complement to dental hygiene or oral restorations.

Composite resins

After an accident, trauma, cavities or any other dental problems, one of the treatments recommended by our team is a white composite restoration. Such restorations are made when a small portion of the tooth needs to be resconstructed. Resins are applied to the tooth, and after undergoing photo-curing and polishing, these acquire the necessary properties to give you a shiny and natural looking smile.

Porcelain veneers

Give your teeth a new look with porcelain veneers. This type of restoration covers your front teeth with a porcelain veneer that helps the tooth acquire a fresh new look, since it hides all imperfections caused by pigmentation (stained teeth), small fractures or any other small imperfections.


Do you have silver or blackened fillings that you wish to change into something more aesthetic-looking? Are your molars affected by small to moderate cavities? Are they cracked, fractured or do they show damages that are still not severe enough for a dental crown? Then this type of restoration may be part of your treatment in order to fulfill your expectations! Remember that in order to qualify for porcelain inlays, your teeth must have at least 80% of their original structure present and intact.

Dental crowns

This type of restoration is used on teeth that show a significant loss of dental structure. A much damaged tooth is strengthened in its entirety by covering it with a porcelain jacket. This way the tooth recovers its function and natural beauty.

Dental bridges

When one or more teeth are lost, a bridge may be the recommended solution. The bridge is a structure that spans through space between teeth, which is connected by existing teeth in both side. Lost teeth are replaced by crowns cemented to such structure, and once these are fixed in place, your mouth regains its functions and healtly and natural look.

Dental implants

These are artificial substitutes of the roots of natural teeth. Restorations are permanently implanted in the oral cavity. Replaced teeth are fixed to the supporting part of the implant. They can support either fixed or removable prosthesis.

Complete dentures 

These type of removable oral restorations are designed for persons that have lost all their teeth, upper, lower or both, for different reasons. With complete dentures the appearance functionality of the mouth is renewed. They are also utilized in the initial stage before complete fixed rehabilitation through implants.

Partial Dentures

By employing the teeth that still exist in the mouth, partial dentures help restore empty areas after loss of teeth.

Full mouth rehabilitations

These are highly complex rehabilitations involving all or almost all the teeth. When is this treatment necessary? The reasons range from a large quantity of crowns and bridges made during several years, where the materials and colors are different; persons with bruxism whose teeth have been worn due to constant teeth grinding; gastric reflux, or any other disorders causing the loss of dental structure.

Oral surgeries

There is a wide variety of surgical treatment designed for different puporses, such as improving gum outline, setting implants, removing teeth and some of an exploratory nature, among others. This type of intervention is mostly perfomed by a team including other highly professional specialists sucha as: periododontists, endodontists and maxilliofacial surgeons.

Root canal treatments, endodontic procedures

When the vitality of a tooth is compromised, or its nerve has been damaged, a root canal treatment is in order. The affected nerve is then replace by an restorative material and, depending on the amount of the remaining dental structure, it is restored with a resin, veneer, incrustation, crown or bridge in order to provide a more aesthetically pleasing look to the mouth.
