Learn More About Our Featured Procedures
Dental crowns are a great way to protect a weakened tooth after sustaining trauma, decay, or infection. Our dentists will design a restoration that fits the precise specifications of your tooth and blends in seamlessly with your smile. Your crown will be made from durable, stain-resistant porcelain ceramic, that can last a decade or more with proper maintenance. With CEREC technology, we can even craft your custom crown and place it on your tooth in a single visit.
Cosmetic issues like cracks, stains, and misshapen teeth can cause embarrassment and make you feel self-conscious about smiling. Our porcelain veneers can hide those aesthetic issues and provide a brighter, more symmetrical smile that inspires confidence. Veneers fit over the front surfaces of your teeth and are custom-made to complement the shape, size, and color of surrounding teeth in your smile. Our dentists can also combine veneers with other types of cosmetic dentistry to completely rejuvenate your smile.
You do not have to live with the negative consequences of tooth loss. Our practice offers the next best thing to natural teeth with dental implants. This revolutionary treatment replaces missing tooth roots with titanium implants helping you maintain your jawbone and a youthful facial structure. Best of all, dental implants provide maximum stability to an implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile with confidence.
Despite common misconception, a root canal is in fact a very simple and virtually painless procedure. If you are suffering from tooth decay or infection, root canal treatment is a safe and effective way to alleviate your painful symptoms and restore your oral health. Our dentists provide gentle treatment and will administer local anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable the entire time. If you think you may need a root canal, don't put off your appointment. The sooner you get treatment the better we can save your tooth and restore your oral health.
Tooth loss can make simple tasks like chewing and speaking unnecessarily difficult. Fortunately, we can repair your smile with natural-looking dentures. These prosthetics are custom designed to fit your mouth and match the aesthetics of your natural teeth. Our Birmingham, AL, practice restores both traditional and implant-supported dentures allowing our patients to choose an option best suited for their needs and budget.

Cutting-Edge Technology For More Efficient Dental Care
The advanced technology featured in our practice enhances the quality of our care and minimizes patients' discomfort. Our intraoral cameras capture precise images of your teeth in seconds and eliminate the need for messy traditional impressions.
Digital x-rays, cone beam 3-D imaging, and CAD/CAM computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing, all improve the accuracy of treatment planning. Additionally, with CEREC® same-day technology, we can craft superior restorations, improving the results of your dental crown treatments.
Better Health Care
Early detection is key for our dentists to diagnose and successfully treat many oral health conditions. Our practice is equipped with VELscope®, a tool used for oral cancer screening that utilizes fluorescent light to help detect changes and precancerous growths that may be overlooked during a visual examination.
Read What Patients Have To Say...
Everyone is very kind and accommodating from the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave. Charity was very informative while cleaning my teeth and GENTLE. She was amazing and sweet. Dr Bates and her assistant Daisy are great, I’ve had to have a lot of work done and they’ve been very nice during all the procedures making it as comfortable as possible for me.View on Google
My wife and I have NEVER had a dental experience as awesome as this. From the moment we walked through the door to the time we left it was an elevated experience. The Hygienist was gentle and informative. The doctor was clearly interested in giving me complete information and was not in a hurry. And though (due to my own neglect) I need a lot of work, I am glad we found this place. I highly recommend it!View on Google
Are you suffering from teeth grinding, TMJ, or sleep apnea?
Improve Your Health and Jaw with Oral Appliances
If you grind your teeth, snore, or suffer from other signs of TMJ and sleep apnea, speak to the dentist about possible therapies. Our Birmingham, AL office uses 3D technology to craft custom mouth guards that protect your teeth and relieve the symptoms of bruxism. Unlike mouthguards you can buy over the counter, these are tailor-made to fit your unique dental arches. Our specialist treatments help patients reduce painful and damaging side-effects to improve their quality of life.
