You tell us what areas you’d like to improve and we’ll show you what treatment options and procedures are available to meet them.

Personalized treatment plan

It all starts with a conversation. Tell us what’s bothering you. We’d like to hear about what it is about your smile that you’d like to improve. We’ll examine your teeth, assess your oral health and review your dental records to determine which combination of treatments will work best for you and help you achieve your desired results.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cosmetic dentistry generally refers to any dental treatments or procedures that improve the look of teeth, gums and bite first and foremost. Though cosmetic treatment often unintentionally improve comfort and function as well, the focus is on the color, shape, position, size and overall appearance of teeth and the mouth in general.
It depends what you mean by ‘correct’. To improve your smile you may be happy with just a simple teeth whitening or you might want to see much more dramatic changes. You may wish to make your teeth and gums look “healthy” or you might want a more glamourous smile. Once we have a better idea of what your personal goals are we can make a treatment plan that may include services like teeth whitening, dental bonding, composite fillings, orthodontics, veneers, crowns, implants, or bridges.
In some cases, crooked or misshapen teeth and teeth that have gaps between them can be fixed with dental bonding or dental veneers. We also offer Invisalign clear aligners which are a discrete form of orthodontics.
Treatments that are used to replace missing teeth include dental implants, dental bridges and other dental prosthetics like partial or full dentures. The solution that’s right for you will depend on how many teeth are missing, where they are located in your mouth, your personal preference and your budget.

Just had my second visit to Dr. Upton. On my first visit, Dr. and his assistant, Jessica, did a thorough evaluation of my situation. He asked me questions about my dental history and actually listened carefully to my concerns. Then he left to review my x-rays and options for treatment. When he returned, he gave me some options, which I REALLY appreciated. He even took into consideration my dietary habits and the fact I don't like prescription medications. Not even my physicians gave me that kind of concern!! Today I had my tooth pulled out and he took into consideration my financial situation and did it under local anesthesia, where my previous experience was done under general anesthesia. It was less expensive and totally tolerable. I'm glad that he considers the whole patient, the tolerance to pain, the budget and the treatment preferences. I also appreciate that he sat on a stool and spoke to me face to face. His office staff, Jessica, Megan and Priscilla are all equally attentive and considerate. Thank you everyone 💓! Yes, I would recommend their services to anyone in need of dental care.

I’m thankful that I found this dental practice. From the staff, upfront, to the dental assistant Kelly, and Dr. Baker, they have been absolutely wonderful. After having had previous experiences that were not ideal, I was reluctant to find a new dentist that I could trust. I read all the five star reviews for Upton & Baker and tried it out for myself, very happy that I did as they make you feel right at home. Dr. Baker is absolutely wonderful and fantastic and I can’t say enough good things about him. He’s Very professional and skilled, top to bottom. Cannot recommend him more highly. Dr. Baker is so thorough and informative, and lets you know every step of the way what’s going on so there are no surprises. Very calming, as well. Thank you!!

This was by far the best dental visit I have had in years. Priscilla was great assisting me with getting my appointment booked and offering me an earlier appointment when one came available. Bonnie was AMAZING!! She went very in depth in my cleaning and took the time to help me understand what she was doing and the benefits of each step, no dentist has ever taken the time to help me understand more about my gums and teeth like she did...very educational! Doctor Kevin Upton was great too, he is very friendly and personable. Will be booking all of my dentist appointments with them from now on. 10/10
