The Solea Laser is the first Co2 Laser system ever cleared by the FDA for use on both tooth structure and soft tissue. With this new technology the Solea Laser actually vaporizes the tooth structure giving us the power to work anywhere in the oral cavity.
Our preventive care services are designed for your optimal oral health. The American Dental Association recommends regular checkups and professional cleanings twice each year for all people with good oral health. At your checkup, Dr. Newsome will examine every tooth in your mouth and how they fit together.
The American Dental Association recommends you see your dentist at least twice each year for a checkup. At your checkup, we will inspect your soft tissues for oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other problems.
Everyone over 3 years of age should visit the dentist for a professional hygiene appointment twice per year.

Some patients react to stress by grinding their teeth unconsciously during the day or, more commonly, while sleeping. The constant pressure and motion can harm teeth, as well as muscles and tissues in and around the jaw. The condition, known as bruxism, can be remedied with a night guard.
Are you unhappy with your image? Modern cosmetic dentistry will turn back the clock on your perceived age by straightening, brightening, and reshaping your smile.
Dental implants have been available for many years. With new technology and materials, today the dental implant is the best option for most patients.
Image plays a huge role in success. Not only do attractive people feel more confident, but they are viewed by others as more friendly, intelligent, and successful, according to a study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. If your teeth have shifted out of alignment, or if they've been crooked for your entire life, talk with Dr. Newsome about Invisalign.
If you are not happy with your smile or if spaces between teeth, misaligned teeth, chips, cracks or permanent stains make you self-conscious, porcelain veneers may be the answer for you.
Lumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers that require little or no preliminary tooth preparation. Dr. Newsome can place the Lumineers on your front teeth in one visit. People concerned with tooth sensitivity, as well as those who may want their veneers removed in the future, should consider Lumineers.
If you're looking for a transition to a brighter smile, consider home teeth whitening. Unlike over-the-counter systems, Dr. Newsome prescribes professional-grade teeth whitening. Each kit comes with custom-molded mouth trays that hold a potent, safe bleaching gel snugly against tooth enamel.
Teeth are responsible for tearing, chewing and breaking down what we eat. Because they're exposed to harsh temperature changes, intense pressure and hundreds of bacteria every day, they will eventually show some wear. Accidents and genetics also contribute to oral health problems, so you can see why many of us have chipped, broken, discolored or missing teeth.
Bridges are a stable solution that renews your smile if you've lost teeth due to accident, injury or gum disease. We can create a fixed bridge to restore your smile. A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents re-positioning of remaining teeth.
A crown is needed if your tooth is broken, has cracks or a large filling. It fits over your entire tooth and will protect your tooth from further damage.
You have a big filling that needs replacement. Do you have to get a full crown? Not necessarily. A more conservative option, inlays and onlays fit into a tooth similarly to a filling, yet they are milled restorations, much like a crown.
If you're embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. A silicon dioxide-filled, tooth-colored plastic mixture, composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state.
