Our Dental Services


Dental Implants:

A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.



Dental crowns are caps placed on top of damaged teeth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem. Dental crowns can be made out of metals, porcelain, resin and ceramics. They typically don’t require special care over time other than regular good oral hygiene.



Dental veneers are a possible solution to help you achieve the look you desire. They are a popular choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between teeth, or misshapen teeth. They are thin covers that adhere to teeth to give teeth a more classically shaped look.


All on - 4/6/8:

All On 4/6/8 is a dental implant technique where the upper or lower set of teeth are replaced with implants. These implants act as a support mechanism for the placement of a fixed prosthesis.


Orthognathic Surgery

Also known as corrective jaw surgery or simply jaw surgery, is a surgery designed to correct conditions of the jaw and lower face related to structure, growth, airway issues including sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, malocclusion problems primarily arising from skeletal disharmonies, and other orthodontic dental bite problems.


Sleep apnea:

Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that can lead to serious health problems, such as high blood pressure and heart trouble, if untreated. Untreated sleep apnea causes breathing to stop repeatedly during sleep, causing loud snoring and daytime tiredness, even with a full night’s sleep.


Full mouth restoration:

Full mouth restoration uses restorative and cosmetic procedures to repair chronic dental issues within the whole mouth. The process of teeth restoration improves your oral health and can also help you feel better about the appearance of your teeth.

Accreditations and Affiliations

Our team of doctors work blending technology and the newest techniques available. All of them have been trained in some of the most recognized universities worldwide (USA, Germany, Corea and South America).
