We are passionate about our work and our ability to change people's smiles. A beautiful, natural smile can bring radiance, confidence and can totally change one's mood and self-esteem. We are very fortunate to have trained with the best and have the most current dental technology at our disposal. Options of all ceramic crown with no dark metal lines, porcelain veneers, full mouth cosmetic whitening, white resin bonding, and invisalign are just a few tools we use regularly to improve our patient's smiles.
Our patient here was content with the "crooked" smiles until he found out that he had different cosmetic options. Without going through the traditional metal brackets to straighten his teeth, we opted to do full mouth cosmetic whitening, minor invisalign movement, and porcelain veneer to improve his smile. This was a very non-invasive method of giving him the smile he always wanted.
A very confident smile at completion indeed.
This patient has always been bothered by her "gummy smile". In addition, she hated the old discolored veneers. As a result, she does not like to smile nor like to have pictures taken. After a very conservative gum procedure to show more of her teeth, full mouth cosmetic whitening, and brand new porcelain veneers, she is now proud to smile and loves to have her pictures taken!
This patient received a complete smile makeover with all porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, and some selected areas of cosmetic whitening. Due to multiple areas of leaky, large and fractured silver restorations, this makeover not only restored her beautiful esthetics, but preserved all of the form and function of her teeth. Not seen when she smiles, gold crowns were made for strength at the back molar where the most force is exerted.
With severe asymmetry enamel wear, our patient here needed a functional correction. We set forth to restore his teeth to their most natural, functional, and esthetic state with porcelain crowns and veneers. Instant beautiful results!
After breaking a few teeth due to non-ideal alignment of teeth, this lovely lady is thrilled with the final result! We were able to achieve a perfect combination of esthetics and ideal function with the use of invisalign treatment and some esthetic white resin restorations.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
We usually recommend complex full-mouth rehabilitation when patients have multiple problems in their mouths. We help people who are suffering from gum disease, discoloration, tooth decay, crooked teeth, and other problems, usually all at the same time.
Before we start your rehabilitation, we will need to do a thorough examination with X-rays to determine what treatments you will need. Since every mouth is different, we create a treatment plan just for you.
A smile makeover uses cosmetic dental procedures to make you proud of your smile. We perform teeth whitening, along with other cosmetic procedures like veneers and tooth implants.
Each smile makeover is different. We start by doing a thorough examination and decide what each patient wants and needs. We look at the color of your teeth and how they are all lined up. We check to see if there are any missing teeth or if any are cracked, chipped, or broken.
Our goal is to give you a healthy and happy smile.We want you to have a bright smile, along with teeth that line up correctly and are aesthetically pleasing. We work with our patients to ensure their happiness. We will do whatever we can so that, when you leave our office, you will be completely happy with your smile.

Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. We recommend this treatment to anyone experiencing discoloration that cannot be fixed with whitening or if your teeth are damaged. Porcelain veneers are also an option if you’re unhappy with the shape or look of your natural teeth.
If you are missing teeth, dentures can provide a positive solution to improving your oral health. We are proud to provide dentures that are designed to fit your mouth for proper function and unique comfort. Following your appointment, we will provide you with information on at-home care for your dentures. We strongly recommend scheduling follow up appointments for periodic denture cleanings.
Getting porcelain crowns is the best way to have a very natural looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. There are times when they decay is so bad that we just have to use a porcelain crown. We also use them with severely damaged teeth or teeth that have already had multiple fillings. Porcelain crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard! There are several types of porcelain crowns so it is important to discuss which type is best for you with your dentist.
Invisalign® is a modern alternative to straighten your teeth without wires or metal. Invisalign® involves a series of custom trays designed specifically for you and the plan your dentist or orthodontist creates to move your teeth. The trays are made from a smooth plastic that covers your teeth and gradually moves them into place.
Dental bonding is the procedure where we apply a tooth colored plastic material to a patient’s tooth. Using a special light, the material hardens and bonds the material to the tooth.
Dental bonding is used to improve a patient’s smile. It can be used on cracked and decaying teeth. It also can be used for cavities. It can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth so you have a more uniform smile! It is also commonly used for receding gums by protecting the exposed teeth!
Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, are most often made of silver amalgam, which contains mercury. FDA review and Life Science Research Office both conducted literature reviews and concluded that "amalgam is a valuable, viable and safe choice for dental patients."1
At Drs. Goodman & Ko, we try to stay in the forefront of dentistry, and we have not been placing dental amalgams for over 15 years. The doctors have replaced and placed over 10,000 highly esthetic resin based restorations that are durable, beautiful and biological.
