Why BriteSmile?

Whiter teeth, in about one hour. It’s that simple. Years of yellowing as well as staining from virtually everything you eat, drink, and inhale are almost magically erased in the time it takes to get a haircut, a manicure or lunch. In fact, BriteSmile has a new and improved professional teeth whitening treatment that gets teeth an average of 9+ shades! And it’s still just one hour.

beforeafter
The BriteSmile Professional Teeth Whitening treatment consists of a gentle hydrogen-peroxide whitening gel activated by a special, patented light operating in the gentle “blue spectrum.” The gel and light were both developed by BriteSmile, Inc. and are available at this office. Unlike traditional bleaching methods, with BriteSmile there’s no fuss or mess and no gels or trays to take home. All you have to do is sit back and relax while we do the rest!

The patented BriteSmile light is not UV, heat or laser-activated. It is a gentle, blue light that is wavelength matched to our whitening gel to effectively whiten and brighten your teeth in just about an hour.

Simple

BriteSmile is a one hour professional teeth whitening treatment that is fast, simple and remarkably effective.

Safe

Clinical tests have shown that BriteSmile is one of the safest ways to whiten your teeth. It’s completely harmless to enamel, composites, and all dental work.

State of the Art

BriteSmile is a state of the art treatment. In fact, its advance technology gives you results that can last for years.

Satisfaction

We’re so confident in our procedure that we guarantee your teeth will get whiter. With 98% patient satisfaction, what are your waiting for?

Don’t accept imitations. Ask your dentist if they use the BriteSmile system. Don’t be fooled by less effective, unproven systems that may not work as effectively or may not be as safe as BriteSmile.

The buzz around BriteSmile continues to be exciting! Around the world, the BriteSmile Professional Teeth Whitening treatment has been featured on TV programs, in top newspapers, in both popular national and regional magazines, and as a prestigious gift in the Academy Awards basket for Oscar winners and presenters. And recently BriteSmile was featured in the movie Intolerable Cruelty with George Clooney and Catherine Zeta Jones.

Phase Contrast Microscope

microscopicOur practice uses phase contrast microscopy to determine the risk of periodontal disease. It allows us to look at live specimens without altering their natural characteristics. As calculus builds up on your teeth, your immune system begins to fight the battle of bacterial exposure. Bacteria gather in the pockets surrounding the tooth, causing the gum tissue to loosen and then inflammation to occur. Bleeding on probing and the loosening of the pockets indicates to the dental hygienist that inflammation is present. The loosening of the pockets is caused by the bacterial infection, which will lead to periodontal disease if not caught early and corrected.

Our dental hygienists will help patients to prevent further decay. Using a phase contrast microscope for periodontal detection is far more advanced than just the traditional probing, and can help the hygienist and dentist to diagnose a patient’s specific condition and develop an effective treatment plan. Using this inexpensive microbiological test allows the dental team to determine whether periodontal disease is present before attachment may be lost for good.

CEREC

Chairside: The technology is in the dental operatory and used while you are in the chair.
Economical: The procedure is economical for both dentist and patient.
Restorations: The procedure restores your tooth to its natural beauty, function, and strength of.
Esthetic: The restorations are metal-free and tooth-colored.
Ceramic: High-strength ceramics are used that are close in composition to your natural tooth structure.

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration put on. Why go to the dentist a second time when you don’t have to? With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish.

A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, your dentist can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. So, your tooth does not crack, and you can go on enjoying your evening. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so your dentist can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.

Periolase Soft Tissue Laser

The soft tissue laser allows us to provide delicate, precise treatment without damaging healthy tissue. Treatments completed with the soft tissue laser are generally painless and do not require the use of incisions or stitches. As the laser is removing diseased tissue it also disinfects the area, which greatly reduces the chance of infection. Best of all healing time is greatly reduced as compared to treatments done with a scalpel. With the soft tissue laser we are able to painlessly treat gum disease and cold sore. The laser is also excellent for gum reshaping and contouring to improve the look of your smile.

Laser Bacterial Decontamination

Laser Gum Sculpting

Cavitron

In the past, the only way to remove tarter from above and below the gum line was by scraping with a hand instrument. With the Cavitron Ultrasonic Cleaner, our hygienists are able to gently, and comfortably remove tarter with high frequency sound waves.

The Cavitron Ultrasonic cleaner is a safe, effective and painless alternative to traditional cleaning methods. The Cavitron vibrates at the speed of sound so you hardly feel any movement. This makes even a deep cleaning a more pleasant experience.

Intraoral Camera

The intraoral camera is a diagnostic dental tool allowing us to detect potential problems within the mouth, early on. The tiny intraoral camera takes pictures of your teeth, gums and the inside of your mouth then displays the images on a computer screen. Using the intraoral camera saves time and makes problems easily visible to both you and Dr. Boehm. The images from the intraoral camera enable you to view the areas with issues, so you are able to see and understand why treatment may be necessary. The accompanying software also provides clear and accurate data so that the best treatment options can be selected.

ClearCorrect™

ClearCorrect is a simple, easy way to straighten your teeth without the use of brackets and wires. ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, removable aligners that we custom make for you. Each aligner move your teeth a bit until you achieve the straight smile you were looking for.

ETPS Pain Therapy

ETPS is a FDA approved therapy that combines the principles of acupuncture and neurology with microcurrent stimulation.

Before the actual therapy begins we do an examination looking for any trigger points and nerve impingements. Trigger points are areas in the muscle that are sore when compressed and may be noted by a “knot” in the muscle.

Once trigger points are identified ETPS therapy is applied to those areas to release the muscle spasm.

Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral therapy uses gentle massage on the spine, neck, and skull to release restrictions in the cranialsacral system, thus improving the functioning of the central nervous system. CST complements the body’s natural healing process and is used as a preventive health measure. CST is effective for a variety of medical conditions associated with pain such as migraines, TMJ, neck and back problems and fibromyalgia.

Lymphatic Therapy

Lymphatic Therapy consists of a manual massage designed to assist in the drainage of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for moving fluid throughout the body, moving toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to cells that are under attack. If the lymphatic system is damaged it could become blocked, leading to swelling of the body. During therapy, specific lymph nodes and points of the body are targeted with a rhythmic, gentle pumping massage to restore the natural flow of the lymphatic system.
