Frowns turn into smiles, gray becomes white, crooked shifts to straight.- these are but a few of the enhancements that Dr. Basil and Dr. George can help you to achieve. What are we talking about? Your teeth.. Research shows that your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. A beautiful smile can create the appearance of looking younger, healthier, more successful and even sexier. Even in the rare instance when nature was good enough to give us a perfect beautiful smile we all abuse our teeth in normal day to day living. Coffee, sugar, smoking -There are numerous types of abuse we do to them daily. This is not to mention the fact that, some of us just aren’t born with teeth that match the rest of our beauty.

The state-of-the-art facility at Dental Illusions, has all the comforts of a 5 start hotel with a Mediterranean Villa appeal. Our biggest compliment is when a patient says they feel like they are in a home rather than a dental office, explain the Drs. Comfort elements are provided that are not usually seen in dental practices. Your experience begins as you walk through the etched front door and into the lobby which was designed to have the appearance of an extension of your living room at home. As you look around the room you are mesmerized by the seven foot aquarium. Looking up, you notice planter lined balconies filled with olive branches. You will then be escorted to one of our eight patient rooms-with-a-view.
Each room is equipped with the latest amenities such as DVDs so you can enjoy your favorite movie while taking care of your dental needs.
