Class II bite “overbite,” or more correctly overjet, means the upper teeth are ahead of the lowers.

Class III bite “underbite” means the lower incisors bite in front of the upper incisors.

Deep bite means the uppers incisors close deeply over the lowers.

Cross bite means the lower teeth close outside the uppers.

Open bite means the upper incisors never overlap or even touch the lower incisors.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are place over discolored or poorly formed teeth to cover imperfections or fractured areas. If teeth are crowded we generally recommend short term orthodontics rather than porcelain veneers.

Composite Dental Fillings

Composite dental fillings involve decay removal and placement of metal or tooth colored filling (porcelain or plastic). Tooth colored fillings should blend in and have a base placed below them to prevent sensitivity. They should last 10 years or more with good hygiene.

Root Planning

Root Planning goes deeper than a regular dental cleaning, underneath the gumline.

A few weeks after a deep cleaning, bleeding gums should resolve and feel healthier. If the gum pockets are deeper and do not resolve with a deep cleaning (or root planning), then periodontal gum surgery may be recommended. This enables gum repositioning lower on the teeth so food is not trapped underneath, and allows access to brush the roots.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Georgaklis is a pioneer in short-term 6-month adult cosmetic orthodontic treatment. Hundreds of dentists have come to our office since 1999 to watch and learn Dr. Georgaklis’ novel cosmetic dental techniques. Our office walls are covered with Dr. Georgaklis’ articles on this topic complete with close-up photos. Visit for more information on this unique area of expertise.

Teeth Bleaching

Teeth Bleaching can be done in office or at home. We usually recommend at home bleaching using custom trays because the process is more gradual causing less sensitivity. Deeper penetration of the bleach brings whiter and longer lasting results. Eventually as the teeth re-stain, home bleaching can be resumed.

Dental Implants

A titanium implant fixture is surgically placed onto the jawbone and then later restored with an abutment (post) and crown.

Dental Bridge

A fixed bridge involves reshaping teeth next to missing teeth and cementing a 1-piece porcelain bridge supported by neighboring teeth. Despite being connected, teeth should appear separate.

All Ceramic Dental Crowns

All Ceramic Dental Crowns are needed when teeth are extensively decayed or broken and a filling would not adequately support the remaining tooth structure. Our aim is to give you the most natural looking, computer shaded crowns using translucent materials that are indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Root Canals

A root canal can be needed to save a tooth that has become badly infected. The root canal procedure involves removing the nerve and decayed tooth, cleaning the inside of the tooth and sealing it to prevent further infection. A root canal generally takes 1-2 visits to complete and requires restoration of the tooth with a post. A crown may also be needed to keep the tooth protected.
