State-of-the-art dental technology allows Dr. Laurie to deliver the highest quality results to her patients. It allows us to get more accurate and detailed diagnosis and deliver more comfortable, longer-lasting, and more appealing results.

Some of the different types of technology used in the cosmetic dentistry field today include:
  • Digital Impressions
  • Intraoral Camera
  • K-7
  • Lasers for soft and hard tissue applications

Digital Impressions

This technology employs the use of a small wand that closely resembles an electric toothbrush. The wand is moved over every arch and surface of the patient's teeth, and the images are captured with a camera. A digital image is then created and transmitted to a flat-screen panel. The detailed life-size image can be manipulated to different angles with a finger touch to the screen. The image is then forwarded to our Master Ceramist who uses it to produce a precisely-fitting dental fixture such as a crown or denture.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is used in combination with a computer monitor. It is designed to take pictures of the outsides of a patient's teeth. If a fracture, chip, crack or other damage is suspected, this technology allows us to show you the actual damage. Often, you may have a damaged tooth but ignore the problem because it doesn't hurt, or you may not even realize the damage exists.

TENS Unit

In cosmetic dentistry procedures, the TENS Unit is used to relax jaw muscles and restore them to their normal resting position allowing us to obtain an accurate diagnosis when testing for malocclusion and Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). The TENS Unit is also used to relieve tension and muscle spasms and aids in muscle extension and relaxation.

K-7

The K-7 Evaluation system provides Dr. Laurie a means for displaying and storing data obtained from patients who suffer from TMD and malocclusion. The ability to collect accurate data is paramount in correctly diagnosing and treating these painful conditions.

Lasers

Dental lasers allow Dr. Laurie to provide more precision in our patients' procedures. Some lasers are designed to treat soft tissues and some to treat hard tissues. The Diode Soft Tissue Laser is an innovative dental tool that is designed to reshape the gum tissue and enhance your smile by making your teeth appear more balanced. The soft tissue laser can also treat canker sores and fever blisters. Conditions that can be detected and repairs that can be made through the use of lasers include:
  • Gummy smiles
  • Cold sores
  • Tissue Management

NuCalm

NuCalm is a safe, proven neuroscience technology that quickly relaxes you without using narcotics or controlled substances. NuCalm naturally brings your body to the pre-sleep states characterized by deep relaxation and idleness.

NuCalm uses four components that work together to bring the body to a deep state of calm. It takes about 3 minutes to administer the NuCalm components. You will feel the relaxation effects in 3-5 minutes. Click here to learn more.

SonicFill 2

SonicFill 2 transforms tedious, repetitive posterior restorations into easy and reliable SingleFill placement: filling cavities up to 5mm in depth in a single increment, with a single material - and no liner or capping layer.

T-Scan

With T-Scan's digital bite force data, clinicians can pinpoint occlusal interferences, quickly remove them, and treat patients with greater accuracy than ever before. T-Scan is also a great visual aid that helps patients to better understand their occlusion and the treatments that may be necessary to balance bite forces.

MicrO2

MicrO2 is an easy-to-use and comfortable device that safely alleviates snoring and symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. If a patient has been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or snores, the MicrO2 lower jaw advancement device will assist him/her in waking with a better sense of rest and provide the energy needed to enjoy the day.
