Some of our Services

Tooth Colored Fillings in Hercules

Metal-Free Fillings

Tooth colored fillings are made out of the latest generation of composite resin materials in which filler particles are bound together by a hard matrix material. Strong and durable, tooth colored fillings are chemically bonded to fill and rebuild a tooth once the decayed or damaged tooth structure has been removed. With a low potential for expanding and contracting at different temperatures, composite fillings are less likely than traditional amalgam fillings to damage the remaining tooth structure over time.

CEREC in Hercules


Enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile in just a single visit! CEREC® offers convenient, faster and more comfortable care to provide a range of high quality same day restorations including ceramic crowns, inlays and onlays. A CEREC single visit crown offers much more than a convenient approach to getting a dental crown. It is a high quality, naturally beautiful, extremely durable and long-lasting dental restoration!

Oral Cancer Screening in Hercules

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can occur anywhere in the orofacial complex but is most often found on the tongue, the tonsils and oropharynx, the gums, floor of the mouth, lips, cheek lining or the hard palate. While the disease can affect anyone, men are twice as likely to develop oral cancer as women.

Invisalign in Hercules


Invisalign®* is a form of orthodontic treatment that works to correct many different types of malocclusions through the use of a series of clear plastic trays called aligners. In many cases it provides an excellent treatment alternative to traditional orthodontic braces and metal wires.
