E4D CAD/CAM Technology - Dr. Lee uses advanced dental CAD/CAM 3D imaging technologies. She is able to provide patients with Same Day Crown Service. High-speed lasers make digital impressions of the teeth to create an interactive 3D-image for precise crown fit and finish. The laser technology captures images from multiple angles for fast, easy and accurate scanning. The software builds a library of images that wraps around a precise virtual model in seconds. The 3D image shows the actual dentition to recreate the exact oral environment in minimal time. The CAD/CAM software system automatically positions and shapes the selected tooth template to match the central grooves, cusp heights and marginal ridges of the actual proximal dentition for milling precision of the final tooth crown.
If bleaching, veneers, or crowns are not necessary, than cosmetic bonding might be a good option for you. Cosmetic bonding is an affordable, quick and painless way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries, including gaps in teeth, spots or stains, chipped tooth. Dental bonding sculpts individual teeth without requiring removal of any tooth structure. This technique bonds a composite material that looks, acts and feels like the reel thing, to an existing tooth. This procedure usually doesn't require the use of an anesthetic is relatively quick to apply and give an immediate result. This process is less expensive then veneers.
Do you have discolored or crooked teeth? Teeth with spaces between them or teeth stained by fillings? You can change the shape, color and length of our teeth using veneers. Veneers are thin, durable shells designed to cover the front of the tooth. They are typically made of porcelain and are extremely durable, stain resistant, natural-looking and easy to maintain.
Veneers are custom-fitted to your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel and bonding the veneer to your teeth using a safe, high tech polymer resin. You can expect veneers to your teeth using a safe, high tech polymer resin. You can expect veneers to stay bright and strong for many years by performing good oral hygiene.
Until recently, dentists used a silver and mercury amalgam to fill and seal cavities. Because a larger amount of the original tooth must be removed, these types of fillings often weaken teeth. Recent innovations now allow us to replace old silver fillings with composite or porcelain fillings that are stronger, safer and more natural looking. Say goodbye to "metal mouth" and hello to a beautiful new smile.
When too much of a tooth's structure is removed to support a filling, a crown or "cap" may be needed. A crown may be needed to:
- Restore a tooth when it is unable to support a large filling
- Attach bridges
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth
- Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
- Cover dental implants
A crown essentially covers a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size. This permanent covering fits over your original tooth to strengthen or improve the appearance of the tooth. Fitting a crown generally requires at least two visits to the dentist's office.
When more than a third of a tooth's biting surface is damaged, a dentist will often use and inlay or overlay. Large fillings on back teeth often require a stronger and properly contoured restoration, such as porcelain inlays or overlays. They are created at an offsite dental lab and are bonded into place using a strong resin. Inlays and overlays protect teeth similarly as crowns, but conserve more natural tooth structure and are a better match to your tooth's natural color.
Healthy and strong teeth support and maintain your jaw alignment. That is why when you lose one or more teeth, your remaining teeth may shift, and the ability to chew and speak may be affected. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, eliminating the gap where those teeth had been. The bridge is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Regardless of the type of bridge recommended, its success depends on keeping the surrounding teeth healthy and strong.
Missing teeth can create a host of aesthetic and functional problems including sagging facial muscles, inability to eat certain foods and speech. Dentures may be your best solution if you have lost all your natural teeth due to periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury.
Fitting a patient for dentures does not have to be a traumatic experience. During the preliminary visit, the remaining teeth are removed and a model is made of the patient's jaw. An immediate denture may be fitted so the patient does not have to be without teeth while the mouth tissue heals. Once the mouth tissue is completely healed, the patient is fitted with their custom dentures.
Dental implants are simply "anchors" that permanently support replacement teeth. They are secure and durable and can be cleaned and cared for much like your natural teeth.
The procedure requires a titanium root be fitted into your jaw to replace the lost tooth's root. Once the implant is anchored into the bone, the bone around the implant requires a minimum of six months of healing. Once the bone has healed, a support post and replacement tooth is anchored onto the implant.
The affordable way to improve your smile without braces -- Clear Aligners provide an innovative approach to bracket-free orthodontics, so you can achieve great results without traditional braces.

Dr. Lee understands all phases of children dental care, including cleanings, fillings, fluoride treatments, sealants, and more. The first visit to the dental office is important and should begin at age 1. Because the attitudes of the parents are often conveyed to the child, we want to prepare both of you for this experience. We recommend short appointments.Children are usually their best in the morning with a light breakfast. On the first visit, simply getting acquainted with the dental environment and examination process.
The new improved Zoom WhiteSpeed is clinically proven to whiten teeth up to 8 shades in 45 minutes. That's 40% better than a comparable non-light activated system. The new LED light technology emits at the optimal light spectrum with 100% greaterlight intensity than the closest competitive lamp. The light then activates a photo catalyst within Zoom Chairside Light-Activated Gel to greatly accelerate and enhance whitening results and deliver the dramatic results our patients love.
