Offering Laser Guided Dentistry

A laser-guided cavity finder improves our ability to detect the beginning stages of decay. While traditional methods would require probing teeth with sharp dental instruments which are accurate only 50 percent of the time, our minimally invasive laser-guided capabilities detect all cavities with 100 percent accuracy.   

Same Day Crowns with CEREC

How often have you needed to replace a loose or poor fitting crown? Going through the process of having impressions taken, wearing a temporary, and finally receiving your crown - only to find out that it doesn’t fit correctly, can hamper anyone’s desire to want another one, let alone want to make another visit to the dentist. Dr. Whitecar promises crowns to last a lifetime, or you can come back to our office and have it replaced at no charge.

Pain-Free Treatments

Have you experienced a dental procedure where the anesthesia has run out? It's painful to even to think about. The Wand uses computer-aided technology that administers the exact amount of anesthesia to meet the needs of each individual as they need it. With the assistance of The Wand, patients have the benefit of receiving pain-free treatment right in the comfort of our office.
