The trends have shifted… Gone are the days of the white picket fence, artificial looking smiles!
In are natural or perfect imperfections we see in natural beautiful healthy smiles…

Natural is beautiful and “Less is more”!

Dr. Sellinger is the pioneer of the “Less Is More Smile” and “Less Is More Dentistry” is his philosophy! Dr. Sellinger uses the most conservative tooth preserving restorations to recreate the natural beauty of your teeth. Whether it is a simple filling or a complete smile makeover, preservation of natural tooth structure is the goal.

Dental bonding, (an additive procedure) to restore the form of worn or chipped teeth is used to rejuvenate a “tired smile”.

When done in conjunction with whitening, bonding can take 7 years or more off of your smile. Bonding will give your smile a more youthful and natural look, and best of all, the procedure often requires no tooth structure removal at all!

What is “Going Green with Your Pearly Whites”?

In the Quest to preserve our earth’s resources it is easy to see that “preservation” is all the rage.

What about our teeth? Our teeth are a resource that once gone can not be regenerated by the body. Thankfully missing tooth structure can be replaced by highly biocompatible materials. On the same token preservation of tooth structure is critical to ensure longevity of a healthy mouth.

The use of going green in dentistry is newest philosophy in holistic dentistry, it is a practice where by only infected tooth structure is removed and replaced with highly biocompatible non-metallic materials.
