 Provide biologic dentistry

Our office is a biologic practice, which means that we always consider how your oral health interacts with whole-body wellness. Additionally, our goal is to optimize the structure and health of your smile, which simultaneously improves your dental aesthetics. We never endorse undergoing a “quick fix” cosmetic treatment that may undermine your long-term oral health.

Offer a range of treatments

We try to keep dental care simple for our patients by offering a full complement of restorative and cosmetic treatments here in our conveniently located practice. From TMJ treatment to dental implants to mercury-free fillings, we have you covered. We also offer flexible scheduling options so that your whole family can get the care they need to stay smiling.

Build long-term treatment plans

Another benefit of working with our team is that we collaborate with you to help you reach your long-term oral health goals. We see the whole picture—including how different treatments can be used in combination to optimize your results. We believe that dental care should not only deliver immediate results that look great, but that it should safeguard your oral health for the future as well.

Even if it has been years since you have been in to see a dentist, our dental team can help you reach your goals. Contact our Saint Paul dental team through our website, or by giving us a call to get started. We look forward to speaking with you!


When you’re not feeling your best you may notice that it seems difficult to care for your smile. Not only do our energy levels drop when we are under the weather, but many illnesses—like colds and the flu—can lead to excess mucus or acid on your teeth and oral tissues.

Optimizing your oral health can actually help you get better faster and feel better in the interim. Here are some simple tips from our Saint Paul dentists that can help you keep your smile as healthy as possible, no matter what:

Focus on water

Water is good for your whole-body health as well as your dental health. Every time that you choose water over another sugary or acidic drink, you are promoting saliva production, and clearing away bacteria. When you cannot drink water, it can be helpful to simply rinse with H2O.

Switch out oral hygiene tools

If you’ve been using your toothbrush for more than three or four months it is probably not doing a good enough job because its bristles are worn down and frayed. Switch to a fresh toothbrush in order to make sure that you are getting the most you can from your oral hygiene routine.

Pay attention to ingredients in medicines and cough drops

When you are using cough drops, mouth rinses, and other soothing products, take care to choose formulations that are sugar-free. Oral bacteria use sugars and acids to grow and multiply. You don’t want to coat your teeth and gums in sugar to feel better now, only to have it harm your smile down the road.

We hope that you now have some good ideas on ways to care for your smile even when you aren’t feeling your best, in general. As always, our Saint Paul dentists are happy to provide you with additional information and support. Feel free to give our office a call, or use the Contact Us page to submit an inquiry and your contact information. 

Have you ever wished that you could have a flawless smile – one that lights up a room as soon as you enter? This is an attainable goal that your St. Paul dentist can easily achieve with porcelain veneers.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

One of the significant benefits of porcelain veneers is that we can use them to correct a wide variety of smile flaws:

  • Mask cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Disguise the appearance of crooked teeth
  • Cover spaces lefts by gaps between teeth
  • Alter the appearance of severely stained or discolored teeth
  • Lengthen the appearance of teeth

Do Porcelain Veneers Look Natural?

Porcelain veneers are not only versatile, but they blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. The translucent quality of porcelain makes them an excellent choice for a cosmetic dental treatment that is flawless and looks just like your natural teeth – only better! In fact, chances are that no one will notice you’ve had any work done!

Contact our Office Today for More Information

Are you tired of living with a smile that is less than perfect? If you’re ready to take the step to finally enjoy the smile of your dreams, please contact our St. Paul dentist today. We would love to meet you and work with you to see if porcelain veneers are the right choice for your lifestyle and budget.
