CEREC® allows Dr. Dooley to complete a ceramic porcelain restoration in one visit instead of two, saving you time and inconvenience. This technology uses leucite-reinforced porcelain, so your smile won't be discolored by silver fillings.

KÖR® is a tooth-whitening system that can whiten teeth up to 12 shades in an hour without any sensitivity.

LUMINEERS® are a contact-lens-thin veneer that can make everyone's smile more beautiful without removing painful tooth structure. LUMINEERS can correct tooth discoloration, gaps, permanent stains, broken or misshapen teeth and reshape slightly crooked teeth.

SEALANTS are applied to the chewing surface of permanent molars to protect the teeth from decay-causing plaque and acid. The sealant is a clear or shaded plastic material.

SILENT NITE® snore-prevention appliance gently positions the lower jaw into a forward position to keep the airway open and prevents the soft-tissue vibrations, which cause snoring.

BRUX appliances are for patients who grind their teeth, causing them to fracture or break, and to prevent tooth wear.

TMJ appliances are used to relieve joint and muscle pain. They act like a "shock absorber" for your teeth to relieve pressure on the joint and reduce inflammation that is causing pain.

IMPLANTS can be used to replace a single missing tooth. First, an implant is placed in the jawbone by an oral surgeon. Bone then grows around the implant to anchor it in place. The patient then returns to our office and, using the matching implant hardware, we are able to make a Cerec® implant crown in one visit.

BRIDGES are the conventional way to replace missing teeth. Teeth on each side of the space are prepared, an impression is made and sent to the lab. The lab makes a custom-fit bridge and then we permanently cement it in place. This process usually is completed within two weeks.

ENDODONTIC treatment (root-canal therapy) is required when tooth decay causes an infection of the dental pulp. The nerve and other tissue of the pulp cavity are removed and replaced with filling material.

WATERLASE® is used in the removal of diseased, infected and inflamed soft tissue within the periodontal pocket, including cosmetic gingival contouring, crown lengthening, treatment of herpetic lesions and mouth ulcers.

GENDEX® digital radiographs create high-quality intraoral images, a process that greatly reduces radiation dose to the patient and are used to diagnose tooth decay.

DIAGNOdent® is a laser used to detect decay in a tooth at the earliest stage, allowing us to preserve the structure of the tooth.
