Dr. Calcagno or Dr. Heimer will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and discuss your smile goals to decide which treatments will best suite your smile.

  3. True. Veneers are made from thin shells of porcelain, which fit over the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can address minor misalignment, permanent stains, unsightly gaps, and damaged teeth. Veneers can provide complete smile rejuvenation.

Dr. Calcagko and Dr. Heimer will decide if Invisalign is the best choice for improving your alignment.
