We use the best combination of preventive care, tooth-colored fillings, and restorative techniques for optimum dental health. Modern smile makeovers are so easy (and affordable!) that there’s simply no reason why you can’t have the perfectly beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted.

Teeth Whitening – Dazzling Results!
It’s natural to want brighter teeth! Whiter teeth are healthier looking, and easier to achieve than most people think. The only way to get your teeth their whitest is by using a professionally supervised bleaching process. Dr. Shearer offers custom whitening trays, made in his own lab. You will receive supplies and instructions and you finish the procedure at home. This technique is safe and effective. Results occur within 1 - 14 days.
Give Your Smile a Makeover!
If you have misshapen teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, our porcelain veneers may be the answer. Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that fit over and are bonded to your teeth, look natural, and are made from the most advanced dental ceramic available.
No Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!
For years, the silver-mercury amalgam was the standard filling material used in dental practices, and many practices still use it. While they are a reasonable restoration, amalgams have certain shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and does eventually leak into the tooth. But the biggest reason many of our patients are choosing the white bonded fillings has to do with the way they look. Many people just don’t want an ugly black plug in their teeth. We offer modern restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can actually strengthen your teeth. They also bond very tightly with the healthy part of the tooth so there is much less chance of decay in the future.
Tired of Dentures Slipping?
We can design and fit natural-looking dentures that won’t slip! This breakthrough involves anchoring the denture plate so securely that you no longer have to worry about the foods you eat or that your dentures might shift or slip. If you are a denture wearer, be sure to ask us about this. It will make your life so much easier.
Dental Implant Restoration for a Perfect Smile
Missing teeth can cause difficulties in chewing and make you self-conscious about your smile. We have an excellent solution – dental implant restorations! After an oral surgeon places a titanium post, Dr. Shearer will custom-create natural-looking restorations. These will match the rest of your teeth, function just like the originals, and be impossible for anyone to detect! Get the smile you deserve – permanently!
Will You Need a Crown?
Crowns can often be a part of your dental treatment. A tooth can be broken down over time by decay or just general wear. When the tooth is too damaged for a filling we will place a crown over it in order to save it and, in fact, strengthen it. We use only the highest quality materials, like porcelain, to construct your crown. A crown will often last 20 years or even longer. It will look so natural that you won’t be able to distinguish it from a natural tooth.
