Teeth Whitening


The effects of aging, our lifestyles (foods, beverages, and tobacco), illnesses, and various medications can all cause unsightly discolorations on tooth enamel. Whitening your teeth is one of the simplest ways to brighten and improve your appearance, so you can smile with confidence.


At Robert F. Cannis, DMD, we offer a variety of safe, effective, and comfortable methods to whiten your teeth. When you arrive at our office, we’ll go over every available option, answer any questions you may have, and help you decide which method is the right method for you, your lifestyle, and your budget.


Zoom! Advanced Power™ – Single-Visit, In-Office Whitening


Zoom!With Zoom! Advanced Power™, you will have bright, white, dazzling teeth in about an hour. This single-visit, in-office whitening procedure will get your teeth their whitest in the shortest amount of time possible. Imagine walking into our office with dull, dingy appearing teeth and leaving about an hour later with a beautiful, confident smile. Not only does Zoom! Advanced Power™ give immediate results, the process is safe and comfortable.


At-Home Whitening


Many patients prefer to use an at-home whitening method to brighten their teeth. These affordable, flexible alternatives typically include custom-fit molds, whitening gel available at different levels of concentration in amounts dependent upon each patient’s needs, and precise instructions on how to achieve the level of whiteness you’re aiming for.


Whether in-office or at home, whitening your teeth is a proactive, healthy step toward beautifying the appearance of your smile.

Deep Bleaching – When Traditional Whitening Procedures Aren’t Enough


Beep BleachingKorUnfortunately, even the best traditional teeth whitening procedures aren’t always enough to give you a white, stain-free smile. This is especially true with tetracycline-stained teeth, once thought to be impossible to whiten. With the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System, even deeply stained teeth can be made white, bright, and beautiful again.


What is the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System?

KöR Whitening is an in-office, cutting-edge treatment that produces results with little-to-no sensitivity for the patient. It works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, allowing the whitening gel to reach the deepest recesses of the tooth, and then safely dissolving the stain molecules. In a short amount of time, your previously stained teeth will be sparkling white—often more than 16 shades lighter! And with easy, comfortable, and periodic home maintenance, the results are permanent.


Safe, easy, and effective, the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System delivers a stunning, natural smile by brightening your teeth to the desired, ideal shade that is perfect for you.

Invisalign Clear Braces


Invisalign Clear BracesInvisalignOne of the attributes of a beautiful smile is straight teeth. If your teeth require straightening, but the thought of using traditional braces makes you uncomfortable and/or embarrassed, there is a solution: Invisalign Clear Braces.


Using a series of virtually invisible, comfortable-to-wear, and custom-made plastic aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into the position Dr. Cannis has prescribed. You’ll change the aligners about every two weeks, causing your teeth to incrementally, almost effortlessly, move into the desired position, eventually giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.


Invisalign won’t interfere with your day-to-day life, as the aligners are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. In addition, Invisalign corrects many of the instances that braces are commonly used for, including:


  • Crossbite
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Spaced (gaps) teeth
  • Underbite

Porcelain Veneers


Porcelain VeneersFor many people, porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for improving the overall look and beauty of their smile. Veneers can correct many of the issues that interfere with having a great smile, such as:


  • Uneven or crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth that are unable to be whitened
  • Worn down teeth
  • Out-of-proportion or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them
  • Chipped or broken teeth


So, what are porcelain veneers? Also referred to as porcelain laminates, porcelain veneers are state-of-the-art, custom-made, wafer thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth. Our veneers are beautiful and natural-looking, so your smile will be too.




LumineersLumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers that are slightly thinner than most other brands of veneers. What this means is that, in most cases, less tooth preparation is necessary before bonding Lumineers to the front of your teeth. In many instances, no tooth preparation is required, which can be an advantage.


For more information on porcelain veneers, including Lumineers, please contact our office. Your new and improved smile can begin with one phone call.

Dental Implants


Dental ImplantsAre you missing teeth and/or dislike the inconvenience of a bridge or denture? If so, dental implants offer a functional and cosmetic solution that might be ideal for you. Implants deliver a sense of comfort and stability that conventional substitutes lack, so everything from speaking to eating becomes more natural.


Over a series of visits, an oral surgeon will anchor titanium posts to your jaw. Dr. Robert F. Cannis will then create custom, natural-looking porcelain reconstructions that will match the rest of your teeth. How natural? Dental implants are impossible to detect as manufactured, function as your original teeth, and allow you to live your life in comfort and confidence.


Dental implants aren’t the correct choice for everyone, however. Successful candidates require healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant. If you’re interested in discovering if you’re a good candidate for dental implants, contact our office to set up a consultation. After completing his evaluation, Dr. Cannis will explain what options are available to you.


Mini Dental Implants


Mini dental implants are simply that: a less invasive, quicker procedure than traditional dental implants. While similar to traditional dental implants, a mini dental implant consists of smaller titanium posts being gently placed in your jaw bone, typically without surgery and in a single visit. Another bonus is the cost, as mini dental implants have a significantly lower cost than that of traditional implants.


If you’re seeking a solution for missing teeth and/or a way to stabilize your dentures, ask us about the possibility of mini dental implants.
