Cleaning & Checkups

Routine dental care is important for your oral health. You should visit two times a year for regular dental cleanings and checkups. Our registered dental hygienists are highly trained and experienced and work diligently to improve your dental hygiene, prevent periodontal disease (gum disease), and increase the longevity of your teeth. Cleanings will keep your smile beautiful and healthy but also help us keep an eye on any issues to catch them early!


Yellow teeth can often impact self-confidence. Whitening of the teeth enhances your smile and takes years off your appearance. Our practice offers a teeth whitening in-office procedure that is gentle, affordable, and provides dramatic results in as little as one visit. Enjoy renewed confidence immediately.


Painful cavities and damaged or infected teeth hurt and can make every day challenging.  Restorative dentistry is the process of repairing teeth. If you are experiencing tooth pain or need dental work, our practice offers a variety of restorative dentistry solutions such as fillings, crowns and bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers to repair and restore damaged teeth. Our team will gently work with you to get you back to a beautiful, functioning smile.


Cosmetic dentistry can provide you with even more than an extraordinary smile! It can enhance your teeth, your face, your confidence, and ultimately your life! There are many advanced techniques including reshaping or straightening teeth, lengthening small teeth, restoring damaged teeth, and replacing missing teeth. We will help you achieve the look you want. You will fall in love with the results.


Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth and provide the ability to chew healthy food. They also help maintain bone structure and the health of surrounding teeth. Dr. Nichols specializes in restorative implant dentistry and fabricates the replacement teeth that go over the titanium post. Through extensive continuing education and study over the past twenty years, Dr. Nichols works closely with highly trained surgeons to create beautiful, natural, and durable implant restorations.
