Benefits of digital impressions include:
- No more messy impression materials

Take Home Professional Whitening Kits
Let’s be honest, over-the-counter whitening products just don’t get you the results you want. Of course, we also understand that not everyone can take time out of their busy schedule to make a professional whitening appointment.
Take-home whitening kits offer the best of both worlds. These advanced treatment options contain high-quality, professional-grade bleaching agents. They also include custom-made trays to ensure a more perfect fit, which increases the effectiveness of the whitening process. In addition, at-home application means convenience and privacy while still getting the benefits of safe, professionally overseen treatment.
Laser Tongue-Tie Treatment
Tongue-tie, otherwise known as ankyloglossia, is a condition that affects many infants and children, causing difficulties with breastfeeding, speech development, and even oral hygiene. Traditional tongue-tie treatments involved cutting the frenulum (the tissue connecting the tongue to the floor of the mouth) with surgical scissors or a scalpel.
However, the introduction of laser tongue-tie treatment has revolutionized this process, making it quicker, more precise, and less traumatic for both babies and their parents. Laser tongue-tie treatment uses concentrated light energy to quickly and safely release the affected tissue. The benefits of this cutting-edge procedure include:
- Minimal bleeding
- Less discomfort
- Reduced risk of infection
- Faster healing time
- Precise and controlled treatment
Laser tongue-tie treatment is a great option for patients of any age.
