iTero Digital Impression Scanner
The iTero digital impression scanner replaces the need for messy, gag-inducing dental impressions. Instead, impressions can be taken digitally to give your dentist information needed for improving their smile. This digital scanner is small and comfortable, making the process simple. The digital scanner captures images of the teeth and provides the exact location of the teeth and gums so their dentist can map out the best plan for treatment. The digital scanner works quickly and painlessly to capture all the information needed for working on your teeth.
Laser Dentistry For Gum Contouring
Laser dentistry is used for reshaping the gums surrounding your teeth. Gum contouring helps treat a ‘gummy’ smile by reducing the amount of gums that are shown when smiling. This not only improves the appearance of the smile, but also helps prevent decay. Laser dentistry works by raising the gum line to reveal more of the teeth through the use of gentle laser light. Patients love this technology because it is scalpels and suture free!
Modern Orthodontics & Retainers
Modern orthodontic treatment is more advanced than ever to provide accurate treatment plans, faster treatment time and beautiful results. State-of-the-art retainers are made to be durable and fit comfortably, meaning teens are more likely to wear them. With advances in orthodontic treatment, you can receive better care than ever before at Sweet Smiles!
When you are seeking dental care, never settle for anywhere that doesn’t feature the latest in technology.
