Zoom tooth whitening has been the choice of more than 10 million people. In fact, Zoom is the most requested professional whitening system in America. In just an hour, patients can achieve better results than over-the-counter whitening treatments that can take several weeks to complete. With Zoom, patients can get long-lasting brilliantly white results that are unavailable with conventional whitening systems.
Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a treatment planning protocol that allows for careful analysis of the patient's facial and dental structures through state-of-the-art videography and digital technology.
Past techniques for whitening, reducing tooth sensitivity, tumor removal, and filling cavaties have often been uncomfortable for the patient, and time-consuming. New innovations in laser technology have created alternatives that also aid in eliminating harmful bacteria.
Intraoral cameras are designed to allow the Drs. Sutton to capture and dislay digital images without the need for external lighting. It allows our patients to see what we see when explaining diagnosis and treatment.
A common concern of patients is the amount of radiation they're exposed to during the dental exam. The newest forms of imaging technology employ digital x-rays which not only emits 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays, but also provides viewable films to the dental staff immediately. These images are able to be enlarged for highly accurate assesments of dental health.
For decades, braces have been the go-to method of straightening misasligned teeth. While effective, braces are uncomfortable and unsightly. Invisalign is an innovation in this area of dental care that provides the benefits of braces while remaining nearly invisable. Additionally, Invisalign can be removed while eating, thus eliminating the dietary restrictions associated with braces.
