Teeth Whitening 

Dr. Ackerman offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry including professional teeth whitening, which is the #1 requested and performed procedure in his office! Biofilm collects on your pearly whites throughout each day which can attract stains that are trapped within tooth enamel’s pores. When your teeth become stained or discolored, it can have an effect not only on your dental health but your self-confidence as well. 

We are proud to offer professional-grade whitening solutions in our office that work to eliminate stains and discoloration. We also offer at-home whitening solutions as well such as our Opalescence take-home whitening gels. Store-bought DIY whitening kits are not as effective and tend to be uncomfortable because of their “boil and fit” mouthpieces. Our office can provide high-strength homemade trays that are created to fit your smile exactly, maximizing the displacement from these gels which ensure they surround all surfaces evenly thus providing better results than what you would get buying some off-shelf product!


Having tooth decay can leave a mark on your smile such as small holes, which can make eating much more difficult. But don’t be discouraged! A filling is an affordable and effective way for restoring damaged teeth back to their normal function – all without having any lasting effects on your mouth’s aesthetics. At Dr. Ackerman, we provide a variety of filling treatments that will give you the smile of your dreams.

  • CEREC Fillings
    CEREC is a revolutionary new way for dentists to restore teeth back to their natural beauty and shine. Porcelain, instead of traditional metal or resin fillings, is often used since the material is stronger and blends in better with your smile. With CEREC, the success rates are greater and last much longer than these older types of material – giving you high-quality results faster and more efficiently than ever before! 
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings
    If you need to have fillings but don’t want them to affect the overall appearance of your smile, composite fillings may be the perfect option for you! Composite fillings are an almost invisible replacement as these modern adhesives match natural tooth color to make them virtually impossible to notice! Plus, they are durable and the procedure can be completed in a single visit. 



If you need a tooth filled or have had root canal therapy, our dentist will likely recommend that a crown be placed over the empty area. A ceramic crown can strengthen and protect remaining tooth structures while restoring its original shape and function – giving back what was once yours! 

At Dr. Ackerman, we offer the following crown options:

  • Full Porcelain 
  • Gold
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal Crown (PFM)

The procedure begins with making an impression on the tooth. These impressions, which are completed by our state-of-the-art CEREC system, are then sent to the lab where the crown is created. When we receive your digital impression, it will be translated into a physical model that is color-matched specifically for you, improving the overall look and health of your smile.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding can give you the smile of your dreams! Minor dental problems such as closing small gaps between teeth, adding tooth length, or changing the overall shape of the tooth can now be achievable with cosmetic bonding. 

There’s very little preparation for dental bonding and anesthesia is generally not required beforehand. We use a shade guide to select the composite resin color that most closely matches your existing teeth; then we apply it using an etching technique that ensures adhesion between material (bonding agent) and host – in this case, you! Next up comes our special cleaning/conditioning solution made specifically so those all-important bonds can get put together just how they should be: perfectly intact again!! Over the course of 30 minutes to one hour, our expert dental technicians will carefully shape and polish your tooth until it matches perfectly with the remainder of your natural teeth.


You can have a better smile with veneers! Cosmetic veneers are thin, custom-made teeth that will fill in any gaps and improve misaligned or discolored areas on your natural tooth placement in just one session. Dr. Ackerman specializes in placing porcelain veneers over your existing teeth to instantly correct multiple problems at once. 

The doctor will first clean your teeth and remove any old surface restorations. He’ll also take an impression of the prepped tooth before sending it off for fabrication. After getting worked on by professionals, you can enjoy eating again with a beautiful veneer that looks just like nature intended – no more fake smile required!

It’s Time To Start Smiling Again!

Cosmetic dentistry can provide dramatic changes to your overall appearance; even a simple procedure such as teeth whitening could boost self-esteem and make you want to show off that beautiful smile! With so many options available, there’s something perfect for everyone who wants their life improved aesthetically – from fixing chips or cracks to everything in between.
