3-D CBCT X-Ray

Cone beam computed tomography (CT) technology enables us to take highly detailed scans of your teeth, jaw, and entire oral structure. With this system we can more efficiently diagnose cracked teeth and other concerns as well as plan highly accurate dental implants placement.

CEREC

Instead of waiting for two weeks for a dental lab to create your customized dental restorations, you can have a tooth fully repaired and back to full function within one office visit. Our CEREC system uses digital imaging to take highly accurate impressions, allowing our Dr. Hebert and Dr. Hannaman to design restorations that fit your exact dimensions and needs. We are then able to oversee the entire fabrication process with our in-office milling unit. The precision of fit and color shade can help complete your smile with a comfortable restoration that blends with your smile and can last for many years to come.

Digital X-Rays and Panorex

With high-resolution digital imaging, we can gain a more accurate understanding of your dental health needs, enabling us to recommend a more tailored approach to treatment. This easy and efficient diagnosis process can save you time and money in the long run. In addition, it offers a more comfortable and convenient experience when taking x-rays and decreases the amount of radiation you are exposed to.

Laser Dentistry

Many patients need restorative dentistry treatments because of oral health problems that often involve inflammation of the soft tissue, such as gingivitis or periodontitis. Often combined with non-surgical periodontal treatment, our diode laser helps remove compromised tissue while simultaneously sealing the remaining tissue to minimize bleeding and discomfort while allowing for a faster recovery. Drs. Hannaman and Hebert can also use our advanced lasers during cosmetic procedures such as gum contouring to safely and effectively improve the appearance of your smile.

With an exceptional dental team committed to excellence in all areas, we ensure that our patients receive the dental care they need to achieve healthier, happier smiles. 

Computer-Guided Implant Placement

State-of-the-art software allows us to plan highly detailed surgical plans using your scans and x-rays to place dental implants in the strongest areas of your jaw. With improved accuracy and minimal room for human error, implant surgery is even safer and more effective, increasing the likelihood of long-term success.
