5 Cool Facts About Modern Dental Technology

Modern dental technology has come a very long day. Here are five amazing aspects of dentistry that are due to advancements in dental technology, knowledge, and treatment.

  1. Cosmetic Dentistry Can Give You a Dazzling Smile
  2. Professional Teeth Whitening

    There’s no need to try out dozens of different over-the-counter teeth whitening options. Save that money and invest in one of our professional teeth whitening options. From in-office treatments to take-home trays, our whitening services will deliver more dramatic results in less time than whitening products at the store. For instant results, ZOOM!® one-visit whitening lightens teeth by up to eight shades with just one treatment!


    If you want a brighter smile that will be more long-lasting than teeth whitening, consider Lumineers®. Lumineers are very thin porcelain veneers that bond to the front of your natural teeth. However, unlike traditional dental veneers, they give you the smile of your dreams without any alteration of your underlying natural teeth so they can be removed by a dentist if you change your mind.

  3. Digital Dental X-Rays Are Safer Than Ever
  4. Digital dental X-rays produce significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays do. We also use lead vests and thyroid collars to further protect you. Dental X-rays are a fantastic diagnostic tool that help us detect a variety of dental issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth, etc.

  5. Dental Implants Can Replace Missing Teeth
  6. We offer start-to-finish dental implants to restore your smile to full function and beauty! After a biocompatible metal rod is implanted in and fused to your jaw, we are able to place a natural-looking artificial tooth on top. A dental implant will feel, function, and look just like a real tooth!

  7. Dental Crowns Can Be Completed in One Visit
  8. Forget about uncomfortable goopy tooth impressions and temporary crowns! With our advanced CEREC® software and in-house milling machine, we efficiently create a natural-looking dental crown in-house using a digital mold of your tooth in just one visit.

  9. Sedation Dentistry Can Help You Relax
  10. Are you avoiding your biannual cleanings and checkups because you experience anxiety or fear when thinking about the dentist? Sedation dentistry allows you to have a comfortable and stress-free visit. Ask our friendly team to help you decide which option is best for your needs: nitrous oxide (aka laughing gas), oral conscious sedation, IV sedation, or general anesthesia.
