3-D Imaging (Cone Beam)

We are proud to announce that we now have the technology available in office to take 3D images (cone beam) for our patients. These images are extremely valuable when diagnosing certain conditions and evaluating oral conditions for the placement of implants. Less then 5% of dental offices make the investment to acquire and educate themselves to use this technology and we are excited to be in that 5%.


We are excited to announce the addition of CEREC CAD/CAM technology to the practice!

Strong, Beautiful Teeth.

Ceramic Reconstruction step by step

The defective filling and decay is removed.

  • An optical 3D image is acquired with a small camera, directly in your mouth.
  • The restoration is created on the screen using the image data.
  • Diamond coated instruments mill a ceramic block reproduce the design.
  • This is accomplished during a single appointment using Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM).
  • After polishing, the new restoration fits precisely.
  • A unique light hardens the bonding material, uniting porcelain and tooth.
  • Polishing or glazing ensures a pleasantly smooth and natural feel.
  • The color and appearance make the special ceramic material blend with your tooth.
  • Perfectly bonded porcelain ensures an extremely long life for your teeth.
  • Maximum strength, great looks!

Fillings (inlays/onlays)

After decay and old filling material is removed...
The individually manufactured ceramic will be fitted exactly.
Depending on severity, the whole procedure will last about two hours.


For more heavily compromised teeth, a traditional treatment has been a crown restoration, which can take several separate appointments.
Using the CEREC method, crown restoration is completed in a single appointment. No impressions, no temporary crowns - no need for a second injection.
A treatment time of about two hours is normal.


Malpositioned and discolored teeth can be restored with porcelain veneers.
Your tooth is adjusted and a thin layer of porcelain is bonded securely to your tooth.
Perfect looks, perfect fit make a wonderful, natural smile - all in a single appointment.

  • Perfect looks

  • Perfect quality

  • Unquestionably the most cost effective restoration we have available today

Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)

digital xrayDental x-rays can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image directly into a computer monitor. This larger image helps the patient understand the doctor's explanations more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in" on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage to this new technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster. The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear in the monitor. In addition, this new technology is friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed for developing the image.



Soft Tissue Laser

Modern lasers are used to cosmetically contour gums, lengthen crowns to provide ample structure for restoration, and treat pockets of infection during gum treatment. Lasers are self-sterilizing, provide the maximum amount of control, and are virtually painless during the procedure and post-operatively.




Pro-SelectAdvanced Medications

As part of the comprehensive treatment we offer our patients, we have chosen an ultrasonic instrument, the Pro-Select 3®, that is based on piezoelectric techology. This instrument is the latest in ultrasonic techology .This instrument was chosen because of it's effectiveness in removing plaque, tarter and stains while at the same time being more comfortable to the patient than traditional older techology ultrasonic scaling systems.The Pro-Select 3® system also is designed to gently administer medicaments under the gums when needed.
