I’m passionate about helping solve TMJ Disorder. If you are looking for answers to your TMJ/TMD pain and suffering, I want to help. I am passionately focused on TMJ/TMD treatment. TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) is a terrible affliction which affects the joint that connects your jawbone to the temporal bones of your skull. Patients who have this condition usually suffer from a tremendous amount of pain and debilitating symptoms and have a hard time finding the right treatment.

Porcelain Veneers
Bring out the best in your smile with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a durable and aesthetic solution that can dramatically transform your appearance. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, correcting issues like discoloration, chips, gaps, or misshapen teeth. My team and I will work hard to ensure each veneer is crafted to match your natural teeth and fits seamlessly with the rest of your smile, providing beautiful, long-lasting results. Let’s discuss how veneers can give you the confident smile you deserve!

Composite Dental Veneers
Composite dental veneers offer a cost-effective and versatile solution to enhance your smile. Composite veneers are applied directly to your teeth and carefully sculpted into the correct anatomical shape for optimal function. They are a quick, affordable treatment option for a variety of dental concerns such as discoloration, chips, or gaps. Because they require less preparation and are more inexpensive than traditional porcelain veneers, they are an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their smile at a reduced cost.

Composite Dental Veneers for TMJ
For patients experiencing TMJ issues, composite dental veneers present a less invasive and comfortable treatment option. By restoring the shape and functionality of damaged teeth, composite veneers can help address malocclusion, one of the primary causes of TMJ. I have over ten years of experience in enhancing smiles with composite veneers, which are not only affordable but also durable, lasting for years when the TMJ condition is stable. While I also offer porcelain veneers for those who prefer them, many patients find composite veneers to be a more conservative and cost-effective alternative.

Composite Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a quick and effective cosmetic treatment that corrects tooth imperfections. Using tooth-colored resin, I can repair chips, close gaps, and improve the color and shape of your teeth. This procedure is minimally invasive and non-permanent, making it an excellent choice for subtle yet significant smile enhancements that last as long as 3-5 years. Adolescents and teens who have completed orthodontic treatment are often great candidates for tooth bonding.

Cosmetic Contouring
Refine your smile with Cosmetic Contouring. Tooth contouring is a precise and minimally invasive procedure that sculpts your teeth to refine their shape, enhancing the symmetry and appearance of your smile. Ideal for correcting minor imperfections like slightly overlapping or uneven edges, this technique offers quick results and significant improvement to your smile.

Discover a modern approach to teeth straightening with Invisalign! Invisalign is a comfortable and minimally invasive treatment used for correcting overlapping teeth, crowded teeth, gaps in teeth, and other alignment issues. It’s administered in the form of removable clear aligners that are worn in a series of stages. As a certified Invisalign provider, I utilize advanced digital imaging to precisely plan each stage of your treatment, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal results. Ideal for both adults and teens, Invisalign provides a discreet, comfortable, and convenient way to achieve the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted.

Dental Crowns, Including CEREC™ Same Day Crowns
Porcelain and ceramic crowns offer a high-quality, aesthetic solution for teeth that are damaged, decayed, or need structural support. Crafted from durable, high-grade materials, dental crowns are protective caps placed over teeth to restore their strength, size, and shape while improving their overall appearance. They provide a natural appearance that blends seamlessly with your other healthy teeth. Crowns not only improve the look of your smile but also enhance its functionality and health. We are continually embracing the latest advancements in dental technology to provide you with superior care. One such innovation that has significantly enhanced our ability to serve you better is the CEREC® crown restoration system. As a certified provider of CEREC crown technology in Eden Prairie, I offer my patients the exceptional benefits of same-day crowns.

CEREC crowns are a true breakthrough in Restorative Dentistry. They allow us to create high-quality, durable ceramic crowns right in our office, often within a single appointment
