If general dentistry is the science of keeping your teeth strong and healthy, then cosmetic dentistry is the art of creating a beautiful smile. That’s why the best cosmetic dentistry needs artists like Dr. Ruparelia and Dr. Hagert.
Drs. Ruparelia and Hagert have advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, making it possible for you to literally choose the smile you want. With their help, you can have the exact smile of your dreams.
Just imagine – you can actually choose the color, shape and size of your teeth. You can even “audition” the smile to see if you like it, and come back for adjustments if your test ride isn’t exactly perfect. That’s the beauty of modern Dentistry at Cascades!

Most of us aren’t born with perfect smiles, and normal wear and tear can take some of the dazzle out of even the best of smiles. Over the years, teeth can accumulate stains, chips and cracks that stop them from looking their best.
Porcelain veneers are a great solution for anyone who wants their youthful smile back – or often, the perfect the smile they always wanted, but never had.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that actually replace the old surface of your teeth, leaving you with a smile that has no stains, chips, cracks or gaps. They really do give you that perfect smile because they’re designed to be your idea of perfect, right down to shape, size and color.
Many people want a straighter smile, but can’t imagine living through months or years of wearing the metal and wires required for traditional braces. This is especially true of adult patients who don’t have the straight smile they want but can’t bear the thought of seeing that metal-mouth look in the mirror every day.
Modern dentistry offers a solution. The Cascades Center for Dental Health is proud to offer patients Invisalign. This technology uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently reposition teeth over a period of months. These aligners are almost invisible to the naked eye, and better yet, they are removable. That means you can straighten your teeth without compromising your appearance, and you can even take the Invisalign retainers out while you eat to keep them clean.
The word “braces” no longer has to strike fear among adults and older teens who want to straighten their teeth. Now you can get the radiant smile you’ve always dreamed of without waiting for years. At Cascades, Dr. Christie Hagert will give you a new smile in just six months.
Six Month Smiles braces are virtually invisible and straighten teeth much more quickly and comfortably than traditional braces. The Six Month Smiles System is designed specifically for adults and teenagers (over 18), who have crooked, crowded, or spaced teeth without major bite issues.
The technique offers tremendous advantages over traditional metal braces:
- Unlike the traditional braces people must often wear for two to four years, this procedure straightens teeth in an average of just six months and uses low forces to gently move teeth more comfortably.
- The Six Month Smiles System utilizes specialized clear brackets and tooth-colored wires – making them virtually invisible.
- The procedure requires fewer dentist visits and is typically less expensive than traditional braces.
- The Six Month Smiles System can result in healthier gums, since straight teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth.
Not all tooth whitening products are the same. While over-the-counter products are quick, they won’t offer the same level of whitening or last as long as professional dental office whitening.
Our traditional whitening is a high-quality, take-home, overnight system. This uses retainers, similar in appearance to an athletic mouth guard, that are worn at night. The overnight whitening process takes one-to two weeks to complete for best results.
The Cascades Center for Dental Heath also offers the fastest, whitest, and longest lasting whitening available – Zoom Advance.
This amazing technology brings you the latest advancements in professional teeth whitening. It’s extremely popular with patients all over the country, and we’re proud to offer Zoom Advance at Cascades.
In most cases, you’ll painlessly and effortlessly relax in our dental chair and receive the world’s best whitening in about an hour. It’s so easy and effective you’ll be amazed.
All whitening works best on healthy, clean teeth, so arrange for a Zoom Advance Whitening after your next regularly scheduled cleaning and exam. You’ll be glad you did!
