Custom shading and premier lab service

We use a computerized digital shade detector to match the color of your dental restorations with great accuracy.

If you are receiving crowns or veneers as part of your treatment, we have several special features to make sure you will be 100 percent happy with the look of your new teeth.

Dr. Field uses an advanced, computerized shade detector to ensure your new teeth will blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. Our digital device is twice as accurate as a visual attempt to match color, and guarantees the best possible match to surrounding teeth.

We partner with a local, trusted lab that consistently provides our patients with high-quality new teeth as directed by Dr. Field. They will send out a lab technician twice during your treatment—once for the prep visit and again at the final placement— to take notes and adjust the shading as needed.

Procedures We May Use to Create Your Beautiful New Smile:

Teeth WhiteningWe offer the KöR whitening system for superior results as well as Opalescence take-home whitening trays.

Six Month Smiles®—Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic tooth straightening system for adults and older teens that uses the mechanical principles of traditional braces to create a straight new smile in about six months. The clear plastic brackets and tooth-colored wires make them practically invisible.

Smile Makeover Testimonial

kristin“After my accident, I was so upset because I just knew that my teeth would never look as good. I had three broken teeth, I was embarrassed to smile and I had lost some of my self-confidence. When I came to see Dr. Field, I could tell that he truly cared about what I was going through and that he would do everything he could to make my smile look like nothing had ever happened.

“The staff always greeted me with a smile and knew me by name. They truly cared about me and were just as excited as I was when my treatment began to progress and my smile began to look more and more normal.

“The first time I saw my new teeth I was so excited because my teeth looked better than they did before the accident. My confidence has been restored and I smile more than I did before!”
