Innovative Technology for Dental Care
Here at Highway K Dental Care, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution dental images and x-rays that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, gum disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.
We are able to reduce the duration of your dental visit to Highway K Dental Care by using the iTero Element digital scanner to quickly obtain an extremely high-quality image of your entire dental structure. You are able to see not only the current condition of your teeth, but also a before-and-after-simulation of your ideal smile – and this is all done without the discomfort of using dental trays and impression goo to produce a physical model. The iTero Element scanner is non-invasive, convenient, and comfortable for dental imaging while allowing our dentist to deliver a higher level of care to our patients.
A dental crown is a "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. A crown might be needed to protect a decayed tooth from more damage, to restore an already broken tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a severely discolored tooth. Crowns offer long-term durability, protection from decay and cracking, and an improved, natural appearance. A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.

Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information
