Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can change the length, shade, shape, and overall appearance of your teeth. Veneers are thin, yet durable shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front side of teeth. We work one-on-one with patients to design their new smile and ensure that they’re happy with their results. Veneers are a permanent way to enhance your teeth and get a red-carpet ready smile.

Porcelain Veneer FAQs

Veneers are used to correct a variety of aesthetic tooth imperfections, such as:

  • Alter the Shape of Teeth
  • Close Small Gaps Between Teeth
  • Cover Cracked, Chipped, or Misshapen Teeth
  • Give Teeth a More Uniform Appearance
  • Lengthen Short Teeth
  • Whiten Discolored Teeth

Yes! Veneers require a large portion of enamel removal to ensure that the veneers sit snugly in place. Because of this, the procedure is irreversible, which means that you can enjoy the benefits of your renewed, picturesque smile for a lifetime!

Professional Teeth Whitening

  • Take-Home Whitening Kits
    If you’re looking to whiten your teeth in the comfort and convenience of your own home, you can still achieve professional-grade results with our take-home whitening kits. We’ll take quick impressions of your teeth to create custom-fitted whitening trays and send you home with bleaching gel so you can achieve a brighter smile on your own schedule.
  • Take-Home Whitening FAQs

    If you follow the whitening instructions and do the recommended number of treatments each week, you should start to see great whitening results by the second week of your treatments!

    Our teeth whitening trays are designed to fit snugly on the upper and lower arch of teeth. Because of their snug design, the trays keep the whitening gel firmly in place giving patients more even brightening results.


  • In-Office Whitening Sessions
    For quick, effective whitening results, we offer in-office, one-visit teeth whitening sessions. We’ll take care of the entire process and adjust your treatment along the way to accommodate for any tooth sensitivity. In as little as one hour, you can leave our office flashing a beautiful, captivating smile that’s up to eight shades lighter!
  • In-Office Whitening FAQs

    Some patients experience temporary tooth sensitivity during their whitening appointments. However, our team monitors your sensitivity levels throughout your whitening treatment and we’ll make sure that you feel comfortable throughout!

    The longevity of your whitening depends on many factors. Patients that maintain a proper at-home oral hygiene routine and avoid foods and drinks that stain teeth may not need a touch-up for as long as 9 to 12 months after their initial treatment.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

We understand that many patients put off straightening their teeth because they don’t want to deal with a mouth full of metal. We offer Invisalign aligner therapy which utilizes clear, discreet aligner trays that will subtly straighten your teeth. With Invisalign, you can feel confident in your smile throughout the entire straightening process and remove your aligners when you brush, floss, and eat for added convenience.

Invisalign FAQs

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic method because it offers a variety of benefits for patients, including:

  • Clear, Nearly Invisible Orthodontic Method
  • Convenient, Removable Trays
  • Shorter Average Treatment Time
  • Smooth, Non-Irritating Aligners

Chances are, yes! Invisalign is geared towards patients looking for a subtle orthodontic treatment. Invisalign treats mild to moderate alignment issues and gives patients the confidence to smile throughout the straightening process. At your consultation, we’ll be able to see if Invisalign is the right option for you!

BOTOX®

Are you looking to conceal any fine lines and wrinkles? We offer BOTOX injections to fill in your crow’s feet and smile lines to give you a more youthful-looking appearance. Dr. Oushy has received extensive training and education on facial structure and anatomy to help patients feel confident in their skin.

BOTOX FAQs

BOTOX takes 24 to 48 hours for patients to fully see the results and it lasts an average of three to six months before patients will need to schedule another appointment for touch-ups.

BOTOX (botulinum toxin) works by temporarily reducing the muscle activity around the patients’ fine lines and wrinkles. It provides a noticeable smoothing effect and youthful results that draws many patients to this treatment.
