Dr. McCrea's practice philosophy is less is better. Simpler is better. That being said, if your teeth are not what you had hoped for we can help make them brighter, or straighter. The choices we offer you will run from simple; whitening and bonding, to braces and whitening,to Lumineers, to full crowns. Implants can be a life changer for our patients wearing parital or dentures. You and Dr. McCrea will talk through the choices avalible and you'll help him choose what is going to be best for you.
