We care about
your oral health

Whether your dental needs are a complete exam and cleaning, a full mouth restoration, or anything in between, we promise to provide you with exceptional care as we enhance the natural beauty of your smile.

We look forward to providing you with the personal care you deserve.


Your prevention program is a cooperative effort by you, Dr. Greco, and the entire dental staff. Our goal is to preserve your natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases. Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, including digital X-rays, Itero digital scanning, cleanings, and proper oral hygiene.

Sealants and fluoride application are also essential preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.  Our techniques are constantly improved and updated.

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by Dr. Greco at your initial dental visit and after that annually. It includes the following:

Examination of digital X-rays: Essential for detecting dental decay, tumors, cysts, and bone levels. X-rays also help evaluate tooth and root positions.

Oral cancer screening: Examination of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, oral tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Gum disease evaluation: Evaluate the gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for dental decay with special dental instruments, including laser and Itero technologies.

Examination of existing restoration: All fillings, onlays, crowns, bridges and implants will be closely evaluated.

TMJ (Jaw Joints Examination): Evaluation of the condition and function of the jaw joints and muscles
Our Registered Dental Hygienists perform professional dental cleaning (dental prophylaxis). Your cleaning appointment will include a complete dental exam and the following:

Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is a hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth and root surfaces. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.

Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. These bacteria produce toxins that inflame the gums. This inflammation is called gingivitis and is the beginning of Periodontal Disease (infection of the gums and bone surrounding your teeth).

Tooth polishing: Removal of stains and plaque that is not otherwise removed during daily toothbrushing or professional scaling.
In our office, we use digital dental X-rays. Digital X-rays reduce radiation by 80 to 90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional X-rays. Images can be instantly viewed and enlarged, helping Dr. Greco and the hygienist detect problems more efficiently.

Digital X-rays are preventive and diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental examination. Dr. Greco uses this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and dental decay.


Abscesses or cysts
Bone loss
Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
Decay between teeth
Dental abnormalities
Poor tooth and root positions
Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

Detecting and treating dental problems early may save time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!


We are all exposed daily to natural radiation in our environment. Digital X-rays produce a significantly lower level of radiation compared to traditional dental X-rays. Not only are digital X-rays better for the health and safety of the patient, but they are also faster and more comfortable to take, which reduces your time in the dental office.

Additionally, since the digital image is captured electronically, there is no need to develop the X-rays, thus eliminating the disposal of harmful waste and chemicals into our environment. Even though digital X-rays produce a low radiation level and are considered very safe, Dr. Greco will still take the necessary precautions to limit the patient's exposure to radiation. These precautions include only taking those X-rays necessary and using lead apron shields to protect the body.


The need for dental X-rays depends on each patient's dental condition. Dr. Greco and your hygienist will recommend necessary digital X-rays based on reviewing the patient’s medical and dental history, dental exam, signs and symptoms, age, and the risk of disease.

A full mouth series of digital X-rays is recommended for new patients and usually remains current for three to five years. Checkup X-rays are recommended once a year to detect potential further dental decay between teeth and changes to bone levels surrounding your teeth.
Fluoride is the most effective agent available to help prevent tooth decay. It is a naturally occurring mineral present in varying amounts in several foods and our water supply. The fluoride benefits have been well known for over 70 years and are supported by many health and professional organizations.

Fluoride works in two ways:

Topical fluoride strengthens the teeth once they have erupted by seeping into the tooth enamel's outer surfaces, making the tooth more resistant to dental decay. Topical fluoride is obtained by using fluoride containing tooth products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels. Dr. Greco and his dental hygienists generally recommend that children have a professional application of fluoride twice a year during dental checkups.

Systemic fluoride found in our foods and water supplies strengthens the teeth that have erupted and those that are developing under the gums. It is also available as a supplement in a drop or gel form. Generally, fluoride drops are recommended for infants, and tablets are best suited for children up through the teenage years. It is essential to monitor the amount of fluoride a child ingests. If too much fluoride is consumed while the teeth are developing, a condition called fluorosis (white spots on the teeth) may result.

Although most people receive fluoride from food and water, sometimes it is not enough to prevent decay.  Dr. Greco and his dental hygienists may recommend the use of home or professional fluoride treatments for the following reasons:

- Deep pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of teeth
- Exposed and sensitive root surfaces
- Fair to poor oral hygiene habits
- Frequent sugar and carbohydrate intake
- Inadequate exposure to fluorides
- Inadequate saliva flow due to medical conditions, medical treatments, or medications
- Recent history of dental decay

Remember, fluoride alone will not prevent dental decay. It is vital to brush twice a day, floss regularly, eat balanced meals, reduce sugary snacks, and periodically visit Dr. Greco.
A beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime is our ultimate goal. Your home care plays an essential role in achieving this goal. Your home care starts by eating balanced meals, reducing the number of sugary snacks you eat, and correctly using the various dental aids available to help control the plaque bacteria that cause dental disease.

Toothbrushing: Brush your teeth at least twice a day, especially before going to bed at night, with an ADA approved soft bristle toothbrush and fluoride-containing toothpaste.

An electronic toothbrush may also be recommended; they are easy to use and can remove plaque efficiently. Dr. Greco or his hygienist will recommend a proper electric toothbrush if they feel it would be beneficial. Ideal toothbrushing techniques will be reviewed and reinforced regularly.

Flossing: Daily flossing is the best way to clean between teeth and under the gum-line. Flossing not only helps clean these spaces, but; it also disrupts plaque colonies from building up, thus preventing future damage to the gums, teeth, and bone.

Floss holders or electric floss aids may be recommended if you have difficulty using conventional floss. Ideal flossing techniques will be reviewed and reinforced regularly.

Rinsing: It is important to rinse your mouth with water after brushing and after meals if you cannot brush. Certain over the counter or prescription rinses may help maintain your dental health and may also be recommended.

The use of other dental aids such as interdental brushes and cleaners, rubber tip stimulators, tongue cleaners, irrigation devices, fluoride, and medicated rinses may also be suggested to help you maintain dental health.
A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to back teeth' chewing surfaces into the deep grooves (called pits and fissures).

More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves. Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and very susceptible to dental decay.

Sealants protect the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface. Sealants can protect teeth from decay for many years but need to be checked for wear and chipping regularly.

Reasons for Sealants

Children and teenagers: The appearance of the permanent First Molar or anytime throughout the cavity prone years of ages 6 to 16

Adults: Tooth surfaces without dental decay that have deep grooves and depressions

Baby teeth: Occasionally done if deep grooves or depressions are present and the child is cavity prone


Having a healthy, bright, and beautiful smile enhances your appearance and allows you to smile confidently.

Thanks to the many advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we can improve your teeth and smile with quick, painless, and affordable treatments.

Over the course of his 30 years of experience, Dr. Greco has transformed his patients' smiles from unappealing to spectacular smiles that genuinely get noticed!


- Change the size, shape, and alignment of disfigured and poorly positioned teeth.

- Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth. Improve or correct poor bite relationships

- Lighten or brighten the color of your teeth

- Repair cracked, decayed, broken, or chipped teeth.

- Replace missing teeth

- Replace old, unattractive dental restorations

Remember, your smile speaks before you even say a word!

A composite (tooth-colored) filling is used to repair a tooth affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then directly filled with a composite filling.

There are many types of composite filling materials available, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Dr. Greco will discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings can be closely matched to your teeth' existing color and are more aesthetically suited for use in the front teeth and more visible areas of your mouth. Composite fillings are generally used to repair smaller areas of concern.

Reasons for composite fillings:

Chipped teeth
- Closing space between 2 teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Worn teeth

An onlay or inlay restoration is a custom-made porcelain filling that is fabricated by our dental laboratory.

Onlays and inlays can be used to conservatively repair teeth with large defective fillings or have been extensively damaged by decay or trauma.

They are an ideal alternative to crowns because less tooth structure is removed during preparation.


- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings

A Crown (cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth restoring it to its original shape and size. A Crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with composite fillings or porcelain onlays or inlays. Porcelain crowns are the most popular because of their natural appearance and durability.

Reasons for CROWNS:

- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Teeth that have had root canal therapy.

A dental bridge is a fixed, non-removable appliance used to replace a missing tooth. It is an alternative procedure to the generally more preferable dental implant. Porcelain fixed bridges are the most popular because they best resemble natural teeth. Bridges typically consist of two or more crowns fitted over anchoring teeth and are attached to a pontic (artificial tooth), filling the gap created by a missing tooth.

Reasons for A FIXED BRIDGE:

- Fill spaces created by missing teeth.
- Maintain proper lip support
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture

Porcelain veneers are one of the most effective and conservative ways to enhance a smile. Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain designed to create proper tooth shape and color by our dental laboratory.

They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful, attractive, and uniform smile. Veneers are very durable and can last for many years.

Porcelain veneers are customized for your smile. With the use of Digital Smile Design (DSD), veneers can be previewed in photos before they are fabricated to ensure that you get the smile that you want.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution for treating many dental conditions.


- The need to create a beautiful uniform smile
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Severely discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth that are too small or too large
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
- Worn or chipped teeth

Whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance your smile's beauty.


- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer
- Stained teeth due to medications (Tetracycline, etc.)
- Yellow, brown, or stained teeth

Because having whiter teeth has become the number one aesthetic concern of most of our patients, we offer several ways to whiten teeth.

Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is essential to evaluate the possible need to replace old, discolored fillings, or other restorations.

Replacement of any restorations will be done after whitening to match the new shade of lightened teeth.


In-office chairside whitening is a safe, effective, and the fastest way to dramatically whiten your teeth in a little over an hour.  In-office whitening is ideal for removing deep stains and discoloration.  

Depending on your needs, Dr. Greco will determine which in-office procedure is appropriate for you. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.


This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits.  At the first appointment, a digital Itero scan will be made of your teeth in order to fabricate custom clear plastic trays.

At your second appointment, trays will be evaluated for proper fit, and any necessary adjustments will be made.

The trays are worn with a whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks, depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.

It is normal to experience some slight sensitivity when you are whitening, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Some patients require a full mouth rehabilitation for a wide variety of reasons such as multiple missing teeth, severe or aggressive dental decay, collapsed or an unstable bite relationship, problems or injury to the TMJ (jaw joints), unsightly natural teeth, and/or poor facial lip and cheek support.

By restoring every tooth with either a composite filling, implant-borne crown, tooth-borne crown, bridge, or onlay, Dr. Greco can restore complete dental health.  

Dr. Greco's three decades of experience and advanced training from some of the most outstanding clinicians and institutions in the world provide him the ability to complete the most difficult full mouth rehabilitation cases with confidence.

He is supported by the finest and most experienced dental specialists and technicians available.

Dr. Greco's highly trained staff, along with the inclusion of the latest proven techniques and technology, allows him to routinely finish the most difficult cases successfully.

Proper occlusion or the way teeth bite together, and the relationship to the TMJ (jaw joints) is essential for long-term dental health and stability. A balanced bite will be more comfortable and will help teeth last longer.

Dr. Greco understands the importance of this delicate balance and can treat occlusal problems with a variety of dental modalities:

Occlusal Bite Guard - This device protects teeth, dental restorations, and jaw joints from the destructive forces of grinding, clenching, and/or an improper bite relationship

Occlusal Equilibration - The process of conservatively correcting an uneven bite relationship by precisely adjusting specific teeth

Invisalign Orthodontic Care - This orthodontic care moves poorly positioned teeth into an ideal position aiding in the improvement of the bite relationship

Dental Rehabilitation - This procedure changes all or some of the biting surfaces of your teeth with improper bite relationships by placing implant-borne crowns, tooth-borne crowns, onlays, or composite fillings

Combination Therapy - Using a combination of an Occlusal Equilibration, Dental Rehabilitation, Invisalign Orthodontic Care, and an Occlusal Bite Guard, proper occlusion can be achieved and maintained
A denture is a removable appliance replacing missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue. Dentures are custom made and designed to resemble natural teeth and enhance your smile closely.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures.

Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

A partial denture not only fills in spaces created by missing teeth but prevents remaining teeth from shifting.

Dentures and partial dentures are very durable appliances. They will last many years, but over time, they may have to be remade, repaired, or adjusted due to normal wear and/or changes occurring to the natural tissues they rest upon.


- Complete Denture – Loss of all teeth in an arch
- Partial Denture – Loss of several teeth in an arch
- Enhancement of smile and facial tissues
- Improvement in speech, chewing, and digestion


Dr. Greco has been successfully using dental implants in his practice since 1987. Dental implants are the most advantageous way to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants are artificial titanium roots surgically placed into the jawbone. Dr. Greco works with his surgical team to have implants precisely placed.

Crowns, bridges, or removable appliances can be attached to implants.


Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth

Resolve jaw joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth spaces

Restore speech, chewing, and digestion

Restore or enhance lip support

Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable


One of the primary concerns patients often have about dental braces is the metal brackets aesthetic impact on their smile.

To eliminate these concerns, Dr. Greco offers Invisalign, a nearly invisible system that straightens teeth quickly and contains no metal.

Invisalign orthodontic treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligning trays. Patients are instructed to change trays regularly and return to the office approximately monthly for re-examination and the issuance of additional trays.

Invisalign corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces. The only difference is that Invisalign trays are nearly invisible to the naked eye and can be removed at will.



This occurs when there is little or no space for teeth to align naturally in the mouth. Overcrowding can cause excessive tooth wear, dental decay and increase the likelihood of gum disease.

Large gaps between teeth

This can sometimes occur because teeth are missing, teeth are too small for the jaw, or the jaw continues to grow abnormally.


This common dental problem occurs when one or multiple upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth. As a consequence, uneven teeth wear can lead to bone resorption and gum disease.


This problem occurs when the upper teeth project further than or completely cover the lower teeth.


This is the overbite's inverse; the lower teeth project further than or completely cover the upper teeth.

Say aaaahhh.
