A Note from Dr. DeAngelo on the Winning Combination
With a winning combination of technique, technology, and the finest porcelains available, I have been crafting some of the most beautiful smiles you'll ever see. It has taken many hours of continuing education, including learning more about advanced techniques such as gingival recontouring, laser sculpting, and deep bleaching. In addition, I’ve mastered the art of working with electric handpieces for smooth preparations, experimentation with various blends of porcelains at some of the nation's finest dental labs, and utilizing modern metal-free and quality alloy materials to get the beautiful smile you deserve. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I have a steady hand, advanced knowledge of the dentition, and the ability to color match your existing teeth or create a new, whiter, brighter smile.
Nice looking teeth are not enough for me. I have done high-quality cosmetic dentistry for years, but what was lacking was the "WOW" Factor. You know, the smile that makes you do a double take; the bright, beaming type of smile that catches your attention and the admiration of those around you. I’ve truly found it and my patients love it. Hugs, thank you’s, handshakes, and even tears of joy have become commonplace at my office and have not only enriched the lives of my patients but my life, too. Beautiful smiles: they're contagious.
Don't take my word for it, though. Come into my office and ask to see some of our before and after photographs. I'll let my work speak for itself. You'll be happy you did.
Changing lives…one smile at a time,
- Alan R. DeAngelo, DDS.

This revolutionary treatment uses nearly invisible clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten the teeth, giving you the ability to smile with confidence all throughout treatment. Plus, you can take the trays off whenever you need to eat or brush your teeth, giving the best when it comes to convenience as well.
Our practice has been dedicated to using metal-free materials to repair teeth for decades, and the results speak for themselves.

Better yet, the entire procedure usually takes less than an hour, requires no anesthetic, and is extremely affordable.
Do your teeth appear to be too short or stubby? Would you say that you have a “gummy” smile? If so, Dr. DeAngelo can make it a thing of the past thanks to laser dentistry. He has spent years training how to use the most advanced tools, and with a soft tissue laser, he’ll be able to painless remove any excess gum tissue and expose previous hidden dental structure. He can then shape your gum line along your teeth to give you that perfectly proportioned look.
