Enjoy Renewed Health with Cosmetic Dentistry

Do you dream of having a more youthful, attractive-looking smile? Hi, I’m Dr. Robert H. Thornton, DMD and I have been practicing Cosmetic Dentistry since 2000. I am passionate about Cosmetic Dentistry and the life-changing results that my patients experience. My team and I would love the opportunity to help you achieve your smile goals.

Healthy is beautiful. We live by the philosophy that beauty comes from a place of wellness and that good dental health is essential for a happy, fulfilling life. My approach to Cosmetic Dentistry is different because we focus on the natural biology of your dental system. We find that the characteristics that make your smile healthy from a biological perspective are also what makes it look natural and beautiful. We aim to go beyond just repairing cosmetic damages to your teeth and strive to enhance the health of your whole dental system.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that bond directly to your natural teeth for a transformative smile makeover. Veneers conceal chips, gaps, stains, and other imperfections that can occur as a result of an injury, accident, aging, or the passage of time. I enjoy crafting natural, beautiful veneers, restoring the brightness, symmetry, and overall appearance of your smile. At our practice, we use minimally invasive techniques that help preserve the natural essence of your tooth, yielding more desirable and longer-lasting results. The process involves a mock-up which is designed based on the functional and esthetic needs before any commitment to the final process. You and our teamwork towards making this successful and involves you in every step of the way while designing them.

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 extensive 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.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Chipped, cracked, and missing teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile but also the alignment of your jaw and bite. Over time, issues with your bite can lead to more serious compilations like teeth grinding and clenching, jaw joint dysfunction, and TMJ Disorders. Dental crowns and bridges can help restore the shape of your teeth and allow your upper and lower teeth to come together properly, preventing jaw and bite problems. These natural-looking restorations work to repair damaged teeth and fill gaps where teeth are missing. I have had the privilege to extensively study occlusal diagnosis and have helped numerous patients restore the functionality and beauty of their smile with restorative solutions like crowns and bridges.

SureSmile® Clear Aligners

If you are considering clear aligners, we know that you want to be confident that you will achieve the results you want, in the time you expect, without aligners interfering with your daily routine. I am a Certified Provider of SureSmile® Clear Aligners. If you are interested,  I’d love to meet with you for a complimentary consultation and find out how it can benefit you.

Straighter teeth look great, but they are also healthier teeth! Misalignment puts extra pressure on your teeth and jawbone which can lead to advanced enamel wear, receding gums, chipping of teeth, gum disease and tooth loss. Are you concerned about any of these issues? Correct those small problems now before they become bigger issues!

I can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted that fits your budget. Your smile is unique, and so is your smile journey. The total cost of treatment will depend on your goals and the personalized plan. We celebrate the contagious power of smiling.
