What We Offer

  • Implants

    Missing teeth can be replaced today with dental implants rather than conventional fixed bridgework, a partial denture or a complete denture. They have been placed in millions of patients over the past 20 years with an extremely high rate of success. Dental implants have allowed even the most dentally compromised patients to have their own teeth again.

  • Esthetic All Porcelain Crowns

    Some patients require the use of custom fitted ceramic or porcelain crowns to achieve the smile they desire while maintaining their natural teeth. Today's crowns are an ideal solution to protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth; to restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn. With Dr. Zhao’s advanced experience and knowledge of cosmetic dentistry even the most dentally compromised patient can have a "Hollywood Smile".

  • Porcelain Veneers

    Porcelain veneers are an ideal method of solving many cosmetic dental problems from a simple chipped tooth to misshapen or misaligned teeth; it's the subtle changes that can make a big difference in your smile. Veneers can give you a younger looking, more glamorous smile. Dr. Zhao began placing veneers on her patients’ years ago with great success and patient satisfaction. She has integrated her artistic abilities with state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry along with her relentless quest for perfection and patient satisfaction.

  • Family Dentistry

    We take care of your entire families general dental needs, such as professional cleanings, non-surgical periodontal therapy, digital x-rays, fluoride treatments, tooth-colored fillings, bridges, root canals, implants, TMJ therapy, dentures and partials.

  • Dental Consultation

    A smile design meeting between you and Dr. Zhao will consist of a conventional evaluation and an esthetic evaluation. The conventional part of the consultation will be a physical examination of your teeth, gums, and bite, and the taking and evaluation of x-rays. The esthetic part of the consultation will be more subjective, and this is where communication between you and your dentist is important.

Services Overview & F.A.Q.

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace the roots of lost teeth. A dental implant—along with a crown built on the implant—replaces a missing tooth or teeth and helps to maintain the bone support of the adjacent teeth, extending their life span. Dental implants are considered a permanent service and can be expected, in most cases, to last many, many years. They are the optimum choice for replacing missing teeth. A tooth replaced with a dental implant should be imperceptible from a natural tooth. Ask Dr. Zhao if dental implants are right for you.

Cosmetic Procedures

Smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance; even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from a basic color correction to replacing missing teeth and everything in between. Explore your options by starting with familiar procedures, then learning more about what can be offered by your dentist's use of modern technology.

Tell Me About Fillings…

Dentists no longer need to rely on unsightly metals to replace tooth structure lost to decay, but use high density, state-of-the-art plastic (composite resins) and porcelain materials instead. These materials more naturally mimic the look, feel, and function of natural teeth and actually bond directly to the remaining enamel and dentin. This means that new fillings preserve more of the natural tooth so less repair work is necessary immediately and in the future. These modern filling materials are also more natural in appearance; it’s almost impossible to tell that your tooth has a filling. Many adults already have existing metal fillings, which do not lend themselves well to replacement with composite resins. The choice of materials is a matter of discussion between you and Dr. Zhao.

Why Select an AAID Dentist?

Dr. Zhao is a Fellow Member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry who offers education and training on the latest procedures, techniques, and products through AAID publications, conferences, and workshops. As an AAID member Dr. Zhao stays a step ahead of her peers by keeping informed on trends and learning how the latest products and technology benefit her patients and support responsible esthetics and systemic oral health. By selecting an AAID member dentist, you know your dental professional cares enough to stay in the forefront of cosmetic dentistry, so you receive the most up-to-date and best care available.

Porcelain Veneers, Crowns & Bridges

Porcelain veneers, crowns, and bridgework all share one thing: the useful and natural properties of dental porcelain. Porcelain is often selected for esthetic reasons because of its remarkable property to mimic natural tooth structure. Today’s materials are lifelike and very durable. Ask Dr. Zhao about the dental material choices that may be used to rejuvenate your smile. In addition to being an esthetically pleasing material, porcelain is the strongest cosmetic tooth-colored material and it can withstand normal dental function.

How Do I Get Started?

Call today and request a smile design meeting with Dr. Zhao. She will be happy to review your options and provide an estimate of cost. After the initial interview you can schedule an evaluation, which includes a physical examination of your teeth, gums, and bite, including the taking and evaluation of dental x-rays. If cosmetic work is desired Dr. Zhao will go over your options – the pros and cons – to help you make the best decision possible.
