Here are a few of the latest advancements of cosmetic dentistry. Dr. James is an innovator and even is accredited with the Academy of Laser Dentistry. This is important because laser dentistry improves results and minimizes pain.

Deep Whitening to Remove Heavy Stains

Teeth whitening is one of the oldest forms of cosmetic dentistry. It’s safe and affordable. But in the past, teeth whitening could only help some mild stains. Today’s whitening is different. It’s more powerful than ever before. We have one whitening system that can improve the shade of your teeth by up to 16 shades. Or, if you want instant whitening, we can use laser whitening. We use a high-strength whitening gel that is then activate with a special laser. You just relax in the dental chair while we do all the work. Your smile will be improve in less than an hour.

To be a whitening candidate, you need to be free of cavities and gum disease. Also, note that whitening treatments will not enhance restorations.

Reshape Gums Without Scalpels, Stitches

Your teeth and gums play a major role in your smile. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and advanced stages of gum disease cannot be cured. You’ll need care for the rest of your life. We recommend that patients with gum disease visit the office for an exam and cleaning every three to four months. We are using laser dentistry to treat soft tissue in your mouth. This is revolutionary because traditional gum treatment requires the use of scalpels and stitches. With the laser treatment, we don’t need to use stitches or scalpels, making the treatment less invasive while increasing the recovery time.

If you are suffering from gum disease, we can use the laser to literally evaporate the infection and pave the way for healthy tooth and gum reattachment. We can use a similar treatment if you have a gummy smile. We simply use the laser to remove the excess gum that is covering the teeth.

Straighten Teeth With Clear, Orthodontic Aligners

Straightening out your teeth doesn’t have to be a hassle that includes the use of metal brackets and wires. This is a new age of orthodontics. We’re now using clear aligners to better straighten your teeth and give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are systems that use plastic trays to move teeth into a better position. There are no fixed appliances in your mouth, and you can freely move the trays for easy eating and cleaning.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect have become a great treatment for working professionals or adults who want straighten teeth without the embarrassment of metal braces. Our patients love these because they  subtle and only take about 12 to 18 months to complete. Traditional braces take anywhere from two to three years.
