About

First of all, we want to thank you for visiting our website. As dental care providers, we are aware of your choices and we want to introduce you to our practice.

Our goal is to achieve an overall oral healthcare with state of the art restorative and cosmetic dentistry. We specialize in improving patient smiles with conservative and non-invasive procedures. Our office also specializes in bringing the latest technology for traditional dentistry such as cleanings and fillings. Since the inception of our dental practice we have not placed one amalgam (silver) filling in a patient’s tooth.

Most importantly, we are very proud of our new offices. We were able to design and build a modern office with many features to enhance our patients’ comfort and safety. The team of designers and architects were able to use simple yet energetic ideas to accomplish a welcoming effect.

Services

Comprehensive Oral Care - As the interrelation between oral and general health is significant, we start your initial exam with a discussion of your general health, including medical and dental. In addition, we will screen for oral cancer, cavity detection, periodontal (gums) exam and an evaluation of your bite.

Oral Lesions - Oral lesions such as canker sores, cold sores and ulcerations are often treatable. We can treat most canker sores and relieve the pain associated with the sores. A healing time of ten days will be shortened to just overnight.

Dental cleanings are important for your overall health. Recent studies have shown a connection between periodontal and cardiovascular disease. Dentist performed thorough cleaning is followed by a comprehensive oral hygiene instruction. You will finally learn how to use your toothbrush properly. Periodontics (gum therapy) treats bacterial infections in the mouth and excess build-up of tartar.

White Fillings - Natural tooth colored fillings have become widely acceptable and are often used in place of metallic restorations where aesthetics are a concern. They are an alternative to unhealthy mercury-silver amalgams. Some studies even show the use of certain tooth-colored materials can strengthen a tooth. Two basic tooth-colored restorations are used: composite and ceramic.

Porcelain Veneers - Porcelain veneers are thin shells affixed directly to teeth, using highly advanced bonding techniques. They are indicated for uneven, discolored, or even damaged teeth.

Invisalign Orthodontics - We are a certified office for Invisalign. Are you interested in straightening your teeth without the discomfort and unsightly look of traditional braces? We are capable of achieving great smiles, in most cases, faster than metal braces. Dr. Samuelian has achieved the highest certification for Invisalign.See the faq’s section for more information.

Contemporary dentistry has gone through many changes, and one of the latest developments is the dental implant. Implants replace missing teeth and act just like your natural teeth.

You will always be able to reach us in times of emergency. If we are not available, another qualified doctor in our office will be able to take care of your needs.

  • Why does KöR Whitening work so well?
  • The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules.

  • How long does KöR Whitening last?
  • Unlike other whitening methods, with easy periodic home maintenance, the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System is entirely permanent.

  • Is it safe?
  • Whitening products have been clinically studied and safely used on millions of patients without harm to teeth or gums. Whitening is considered entirely safe.

  • Is there pain or discomfort with the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System?
  • Many have experienced pain during teeth whitening. Maybe you've experienced it yourself. After several years of research, development and clinical testing, the inventor of the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System introduced a whitening gel that, in most cases, produces low to no sensitivity. As a result, most patients have no discomfort from whitening when using this technique. Testing has shown that patients who do feel some sensitivity using the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System typically feel no more than 10% of the sensitivity they’d feel from other whitening gels.

  • How white will my teeth get?
  • The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System whitens teeth dramatically, often lightening them 16 shades or more. Although everyone is different, with the proper KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching system, all teeth will have stunning results. It even whitens tetracycline-stained teeth, previously thought to be impossible!

  • Will my teeth look too white and unnatural?
  • No. Real teeth can't look unnatural, they just look beautifully white. If you have seen people with ultra-white, fake-looking teeth, these were probably false teeth, teeth with porcelain crowns or veneers that may have been made too white and too opaque. You’ll get the ideal shade that’s right for you.

  • Will my crowns, veneers or fillings whiten too?
  • No. If you have any of these on your front teeth, you may need to replace some of them after whitening.

  • How will coffee, tea, smoking and red wine affect my teeth after KöR Whitening?
  • With your easy home maintenance, these staining foods will have no effect on the brilliant color of your teeth.
