RESTORATIVE Dental Services

Metal-Free Dental Onlays

If you have a large old filling or broken or decayed area on your tooth, you may require a porcelain restoration to protect and strengthen the tooth. An onlay provides that strength without compromising the tooth.

Metal-Free Dental Bridges and Crowns

If you have already had a metal-containing crown, or if you have a large amount of tooth structure that has been damaged or is missing, we can provide you with the healthiest version of a crown, made entirely of porcelain or zirconia.

Metal-Free Dentures & Partials

For missing tooth replacement, if you are unable to have ceramic dental implants, a removable partial or full denture may be used. We use non-metal versions for the healthiest replacement options.

Biomimetic Dentistry with Ozone

Our cosmetic dentist are specialized in biomimetic dentistry and are trained to preserve the natural tooth. If the tooth is still alive, we use ozone to treat and save your tooth, avoiding root canal therapy or tooth loss if possible.

Conservative Tooth Bonding

You may be a candidate for conservative bonding on your teeth for cosmetic and/or strengthening reasons. Ask us if this would work for you.

Jilene Mecham


I love life, laughter, and enjoy my many roles as a woman. I have a composed, enjoyable, fun-loving husband and four energetic, talented, amazing children. I love working as a dental hygienist. I graduated from the University of Southern California Dental Hygiene School in 1991. I worked for a few dentists until I found a brilliant, compassionate, artistic dentist in Dr. Michelle Jorgensen in 1999. I love working with her and providing new ways to bring health to our patients.

Kristen Knecht


Kristen loves to learn about human biology, especially dental hygiene, the mouth, and the whole body connection. She is constantly reading scientific studies to understand the root cause of common dental conditions which led her to become an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist; someone who works with patients to neurologically retrain the tongue. She believes form follows function meaning the tongue has a proper function and the form of the mouth follows.
