This advanced technology allows Dr. Kim to get a detailed 3D view of your teeth and the supporting bone structures of your mouth, increasing the accuracy and efficiency of diagnosis and treatments in implantology, endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics and general dentistry.

CEREC Omnicam to create perfectly fitting restorationsCEREC PrimeScan

Dr. Kim uses the latest CEREC PrimeScan to scan and capture a 3D model of your teeth. The 3D CAD/CAM design software is then used to create a restoration that can be milled in the office just minutes later and bonded to your tooth. The entire process only takes a couple of hours, so that means with our in-office full-service laboratory Dr. Kim can create restorations in only one visit!

3D Guided Implant Surgery

Our full-service implant treatment begins with utilizing 3D CBCT Scan for accurate and precise planning.  Your future restorations are then designed virtually and implants are digitally positioned in ideal depth and angle.  With this information, a custom surgical stent gets designed and milled in our office.  All of our implant surgeries are performed with a custom fabricated surgical stent, which ensures placement of implants in the most ideal position.

Digital Smile Design

With our 3-D CAD smile design software, we can custom-design your beautiful, natural-looking smile.  We can utilize intra-oral digital scan and dental photography to design your smile proportional to your facial profile.  Shape, length, width, and individual characteristics are customized to create a smile you’ve always wanted. Best of all, digital technology makes it possible for you to preview your new smile with temporary PMMA or Composite restorations before proceeding with permanent treatment.

Digital Orthodontics

Begin with the end in mind.  Your orthodontic treatment journey can be a long process that can take up to 12-24 months.  It is very important to understand different orthodontic treatment options and preview possible outcomes before committing to orthodontic treatment.  With digital planning, we can incorporate intra-oral digital scan of your teeth, facial photography, 3D Cone Beam CT Scan and show you a preview of what each orthodontic treatment option can achieve. We can virtually show you how teeth will move, how long treatment may take, and most importantly help you make an informed decision on which orthodontic treatment option is best suited for your needs.
