At Smile By Design, we perform state-of-the-art dental techniques in a comfortable, welcoming environment. Our experienced dentist and implantologist, Dr. Donian Shen, offers the full scope of treatments, including bone and soft tissue grafting, the placement of dental implants, and tooth restoration. We also utilize highly innovative dental technology and employ the strictest sterile protocols possible to increase the success of our surgeries. We understand that your time is valuable, and we offer a wide range of services in-office, including certain laboratory testing, to reduce your treatment time.
How We Provide Exceptional Service
A CT scan, sometimes called a CAT scan, typically will be used to determine the thickness of your bone and to better guide implant placement prior to bone graft and implant surgery. With the aid of advanced computer software, Dr. Shen plans the dental implant procedure using the information from your scan. When she performs the surgery, she already will be familiar with your unique anatomical needs. For your convenience, we have an in-house CT machine.
Strict Sterile Protocol
Your safety is our primary concern, and we use a very strict sterile protocol when it comes to your procedure—from drapes to bib covers to gloves. We will also disinfect your mouth before the surgery and use antibiotics to cut down the risk of infection. As a result of this diligence, our infection rate is very low. We have three highly-trained surgical assistants to assure a smooth process. Additionally, Dr. Shen has completed advanced training with Dr. Carl Misch at the world-renowned Misch Implant Institute.
Dental Sedation Options
To enhance your comfort and reduce dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry options like oral conscious sedation an IV sedation to help put you at ease. If you are nervous about your procedure, we encourage you to discuss your concerns with us. We will endeavor to make your experience as pleasant and anxiety-free as possible.
State-of-the-Art Laser Technology
A Water Laser is utilized in our office to help during soft tissue and hard tissue surgery. In addition, this technique is also used to expose the healed implants during the restoration process, reducing discomfort and expediting recovery. The Water Laser can cut down the treatment and appointment time, since we combine multiple procedures in one appointment. This modern technology plays an important role in dentistry, providing greater comfort and saving time for our patients.
The Smile By Design Difference
