We take great pride in providing our patients with high-quality dental care by using the most advanced technology available today! We believe our precise combination of knowledge, skill and technology enables us to deliver optimum results for each of our patients.

BIOLASE Lasers

We proudly use the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus laser and EPIC Diode laser in our office. These dental lasers are designed to enhance patient comfort. Dr. Yowell and his staff use these lasers to perform many procedures in the office, including periodontal care, lesion removal, tooth decay treatment, tooth desensitizing, cold and canker sore relief. For more information, please see the laser dentistry page.

CEREC CAD/CAM System

Beauty and convenience in one visit, that’s what you deserve.  We use Cerec by Sirona to deliver top-quality crown restorations in ONE VISIT, so you can get back to your busy life.  Why CEREC?  Unlike typical restorations, which require you to wear a temporary crown and return for a second appointment, CEREC restorations are created the same day, RIGHT IN OUR PRACTICE.  Color matched, metal free and highly durable, CEREC delivers everything you need in a single appointment, whether you need a full crown, a simple filling or veneers.

CEREC by Sirona is the only CAD/CAM system backed by nearly 30 years of research and development.  Plus, with more than 28 million restorations placed worldwide and a proven success rate of 95 percent, you can rest assured that you’ve made the right choice. 

CEREC uses a state-of-the-art 3D camera to create a digital impression of the affected tooth.  This digital image replaces the physical impression required in traditional procedures, so you don’t have to wait while a tray of goopy impression material hardens in your mouth.  Using CEREC software, we will design every detail of your restoration with precise accuracy, ensuring the best possible fit.  While you wait, WATCHING TV, SURFING THE INTERNET OR ENJOYING A CUP OF COFFEE, your all-ceramic restoration will be created in our onsite milling machine.  Then, we’ll fit, polish and bond the restoration.

Intraoral Camera

The standard X-ray is essential in determining any dental problems you may have, but unfortunately, it may not reveal everything happening inside your mouth. We are proud to use intraoral cameras in our office.

An intraoral camera is a camera at the end of a small wand that allows us to take digital pictures in the oral cavity. As it allows patients to see exactly what we see, it's used to build patient trust through visual communication.

NOMAD™ X-Ray System

We utilize the NOMAD handheld, cordless X-ray system in our office to provide us with invaluable information about your oral and dental health. Using this system, we can capture high quality images fast. Radiation exposure is minimal for the patient and technician. The NOMAD System allows the technician to remain in the same room as the patient providing additional comfort and assurance to children who may not prefer to be in the operatory room alone.
