Dr. Marco A. Contreras' training in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry spans two continents and more than 20 years. In the early nineties, he learned the fundamentals of dentistry at Central University of Venezuela before migrating to the United States where he studied increasingly advanced cosmetic and restorative techniques. Now, in his own practice or neighbor's backyard, he affixes dental implants that replace gaps with natural-looking prostheses and fills cavities with porcelain, eliminating the necessity for metal amalgam. A believer in continuing education, Dr. Marco devotes himself to keeping up-to-date on the industry’s most cutting-edge techniques, equipment, and procedures.
Smile RX uncovers mega-watt smiles with a signature whitening formula designed for safety and efficacy. Specialists apply the whitening gel to teeth using a two-sided mouth tray during each in-office session. Then they switch on a blue LED light to activate the gel's peroxide and oxygen components, lifting away stains and yellow tints caused by drinking coffee or mistaking paint for toothpaste.

When they're examining teeth, the trio of dentists at Premiere Dental Care Center aren't just thinking about the mouth?they're thinking about the rest of the patient, too. That's because they recognize the relationship between oral health and the body. During consultations, they explain how stress can cause cavities, plaque can lead to heart problems, and loose lips can sink ships. Then they meticulously examine teeth in search of decay and other ailments, taking into account activities that can impede oral health, such as smoking.
