Dental Implants

If you have a damaged or missing tooth, Dr. Dorion and his team can fit you with a matching replacement. A dental implant is an artificial tooth that fuses to the jawbone, mimicking the bonding of your real teeth. Unlike many replacement teeth which are simply aesthetic, implants are also durable and fully functional, allowing the user to live care-free and enjoy many of their favorite foods. No more worrying about unsightly gaps, and steak back on the menu? Yes, please! If you have a missing tooth, or teeth, and want to learn more about implants, request a consultation today!

Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers

Dental crowns, or caps, are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth, especially in the case of a root canal. Crowns provide added strength and a permanent covering, protecting the enamel and interior of the tooth from decay and infection. Like veneers, crowns can be made to match the color and texture of your existing teeth.

Dental bridges can be used as an alternative to replace missing teeth. If you have an unsightly gap from lost or extracted teeth, a bridge will not only improve your smile but will also solve bite problems and protect you from gum and tooth disease. Bridges are ideal for patients missing only a couple of teeth, as they are anchored to the surrounding teeth.

Dental veneers are thin, semi-translucent shells used to correct the appearance, shape, length, and color of your teeth. Made of durable porcelain, crowns can help you quickly achieve a stunning smile by correcting chips, stains, and gaps in your teeth. What’s more, crowns are crafted to match your existing teeth, ensuring an authentic smile!


For those who are missing multiple teeth, whether from disease or damage, dentures can restore your smile and confidence. These artificial teeth and gums are formed to fit your mouth perfectly and are available in a partial or full replacement for both top and bottom jawlines. Modern dentures are made out of porcelain or hard resins, ensuring durability and function. Like implants, dentures provide the freedom to enjoy your favorite foods and light up the world with your smile!


The frenulum is the small piece of tissue that attaches the upper lip to the gums or the tongue to the floor of the mouth. For some children and infants, the small piece of tissue is too tight, creating oral control problems for nursing, speech, eating, and drinking. In these cases, your doctor can perform a frenectomy by making a small incision in the frenulum, allowing for greater movement of the lips and tongue. The best part is that the results are instant. You’ll see the joy on your child’s face right here in our office, where we can perform this simple procedure. If your fear that your child is tongue-tied, or if they are having speech or other oral difficulties, contact Dorion & Associates.

Bracket & Wire Orthodontics

Wire braces, or standard braces, are a big commitment. But they’re also a big first step on the road to a healthy, beautiful smile. Making the decision to get braces is exciting, but also comes with a bit of a learning curve. At Dorion & Associates, we’re here to help you earn that dream smile and teach you how to take care of your braces so that, before you know it, your new life will seem like second nature. Contact us today for a consultation!

Tori Removal

Dental tori are growths of excess bone in your mouth. Sounds uncomfortable, doesn’t it? Most often, tori are harmless. Sometimes, dental tori can lead to irritation or infection, which is why Dr. Dorion and the team at Dorion & Associates provide in-office tori removal. If you have strange lumps or bumps in your mouth that are painful during eating or speaking, let us know. We’ll examine your mouth and provide a recommended treatment!
