For more information on the ZOOM! system, please call our office, or visit Dr. James also makes custom take-home bleaching trays, but it can take many more hours of wearing bleaching trays to get to a desired shade.


Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth, which are chipped, cracked, broken, stained, or misaligned. This procedure involves rebuilding the tooth structure by applying, or bonding, a tooth colored material to the tooth surface.


Veneers are custom made tooth-shaped shells designed to cover the front side of teeth. Generally they are made out of a tooth colored porcelain or ceramic material. Veneers are used to treat spaces between the teeth or teeth that are chipped, worn, permanently discolored or poorly shaped.

Enamel Shaping

Often combined with bonding, enamel shaping involves modifying teeth by removing or contouring enamel.


Braces Introduction

Braces, or orthodontics, may be needed for teeth that are crooked, crowded, or do not meet properly. Orthodontics cannot only help to create a beautiful smile, but also helps to create a healthier mouth. Remember, children are not the only ones that can benefit from braces. If you are an adult it is not too late to correct the problems caused by crooked or crowded teeth. No matter what your age, it is never too late to improve your dental health and help get the smile that you have always wanted!

  • My recent visit was for a long overdue (10yrs+) dental hygiene/cleaning. Fortunately, Dr. James' dental hygienist, Brandy, has a very delicate touch, as compared to previous cleanings at other clinics where it felt like a full-on assault to my mouth! My visit was right on time, no wait at all, and the cleaning procedure was over before I knew it!

  • My family has been going to Sue James for many years; my kids see her now! There are no words that do her and her team justice! If you need a great Dentist please call Sue James, you will never go anywhere else.

  • Dr. Sue's office was wonderful in expediting my remaining dental care, as my dental plan was rapidly expiring due to an unexpected layoff. Dr. Sue and her excellent staff are professional, well-experienced, and do their best to minimize the stress and pain issues that probably keep many patients from taking full advantage of their dental plan benefits.

  • We value, respect, and appreciate the care of Dr. Sue James. She and her staff provide excellence in every way. Dr. James just replaced an old crown with minimal discomfort as well as ensuring I was happy with the result. Cannot say enough good things about her capabilities. Love Dr. James and her amazing, kind, helpful, and skilled group.

  • Always a fast, painless experience at Dr. Sue's. we have been customers since she began her own practice, and love all of her staff. three thumbs up!

  • After my past experiences with other dentists I used to hate going. Coming to Dr Sue James I actually enjoy coming in and everyone on the staff is so friendly. Thank you

  • I Loved the office and all the staff, they are super friendly and Sue James is amazing definitely the place to go for all your dental needs.
