Our Dental Technology
We take great pride in remaining on the cutting edge of dental technology. Our philosophy is if there is something that exists that will improve your experience at the dentist and outcome then we will get it. Plus we love cool stuff!
At Boulder Dental Arts, we utilize a suite of imaging technology for precise diagnostic ability and treatment. We are stoked to offer radiation-free alternatives to traditional dentist x-rays AND laser technology to replace the traditional scalpel!
3D Imaging Improves Diagnostic and Treatment Ability:
3D Cone Beam Computed Topography (CBCT) imaging allows us to take a 3D image of your teeth. Traditional x-rays allow us to look in one plane, now we are finally visualizing your dental anatomy as it truly exists. Planning on an implant? We can see exactly how much bone you’ve got, and we can combine our CBCT with our digital scanner to create a surgical guide which gives us an exact placement. Voids, defects, nerves, and hidden discrepancies that are invisible in 2D are now right before our eyes, and we can plan accordingly. No more nasty surprises.

CariVu Technology – The perfect companion to X-Rays:
CariVu imaging technology gives us almost x-ray vision with no radiation exposure. How does it work? By shining wavelengths of light through the tooth, we’re able to see all the fine details.
CariVu is completely safe and perfect for our patients who may prefer to avoid x-rays. In fact, it is often more diagnostic than an x-ray for seeing cavities and cracks in your tooth. We are one of the only Boulder dentists to offer this service; we are very, very excited to have added this to the practice!
Gemini Laser – For Laser Precision:
Who doesn’t want a dentist who uses lasers? Not us. Maybe not even you! Our dual wavelength laser allows us to toss the scalpel aside and use gentle light to perform an assortment of procedures on your gums with much less pain, better healing results, and no bleeding. Kill bacteria during deep cleanings, painlessly adjust your gum contour, remove pesky frenums, and more!
