Here at Keller Dentistry we perform cutting-edge dentistry using state of the art technology. A unique dental laser is used to minimize any sensitivity, eliminate bacteria and infections and allow for smaller fillings, ultimately extending the life of the restoration. In addition to the natural looking, cosmetically pleasing restorations (veneers, porcelain crowns, and white, metal free fillings), Dr. Keller brings much, much more. He will put you at ease, reviewing together the exam results and together deciding how to proceed.
