Dr. Leach and his staff accommodated me on short notice to help fix my chipped tooth. The tooth looks GREAT! Dr. Leach uses the latest techniques in dentistry and I am extremely happy to call him my dentist.

After recent orthodontic treatment I ended up with black triangles between my lower front teeth. After doing some research online, I found out that Dr. Leach was a certified Bioclear Doctor. I drove 7 hours to have him treat my lower black triangles. I am beyond happy with the job he did! So worth the trip! Thank you so much for the beautiful outcome and the stress free and pain free experience!

Today I have a smile I am confident in. I chose Bioclear because it does not damage the teeth and it can be done in one appointment. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Leach and his staff. He listened to me and customized the treatment to my liking.

Thank you for everything leading up to and the day of my visit for Bioclear. I’m so happy with the results from the procedure and I appreciate all of the information everyone provided during the process. Thanks so much to you, Dr. Leach, for investing your time and talents in making this procedure available in our state. I’m very grateful for all of the kindness and care everyone gave to me. The office visits, phone conversations, and really all of my interactions with your office were very positive and put me at ease. Thank you so much for all that you all do!

Dr. Leach did a magnificent job on my teeth. He did some bonding to fill in some spaces and my teeth look just perfect. I am completely happy with the great job he did! He also did the work with no discomfort whatsoever and without even numbing. I was very comfortable the whole time.

K.H.

My family and I have been a client of Dr. Steven Leach for 13 years. He has been a very positive influence concerning oral health. After consulting with Dr. Leach concerning a very crooked front tooth, he advised me and we came to the conclusion that we need to crown the teeth. His staff was encouraging, very kind and helpful with the decisions that needed to be made. Dr. Leach took great care to make sure that everything went according to plan. When it was time to fit the new teeth he was meticulous and the outcome was beyond my wildest hopes. For the first time I had a smile that I could really be proud of. Dr. Leach’s expertise, his excellent staff, and the lab made what could have been a harrowing experience a very enjoyable one.
Thank you Dr. Leach, “She said with a smile”!

We live in a tech-driven world. We are surrounded by it at all times, and in all places. New technology is regularly expanding the ability of dentists to diagnose, prevent and treat disease and to perform routine procedures.

Here’s a quick look at some emerging and impactful dental technology available (or coming soon) at Steven Leach Dental.

Dental Technology

Air Abrasion Technology

This air-powered tool makes the noise and vibration of a traditional dental drill a thing of the past. Air Abrasion is like a sandblaster for teeth. It’s a hand-held tool that allows technicians to remove tiny amounts of tooth material with extreme precision.

Anesthesia Wand

Most of us don’t like needles. The anesthesia wand is a pen-like device that delivers a precise dose of anesthesia and pre-numbs the insertion location. You really won’t feel a thing!

CAD/CAM Same-Day Crown Fabrication

One of the most significant impacts of technology is how much it has reduced the time we have to wait for things. CAD/CAM is a combination of 3-dimensional imaging and computer-aided design/manufacturing. Permanent crowns can now be built in a single day – no more temporary crowns!

Cone Beam CT Imaging

By taking a series of x-ray “slices, Cone Beam CT Imaging creates a 3-D virtual model of your mouth. It can be used to detect disease, plan treatments and see into areas that normally wouldn’t be visible without surgery.

Dental Implants

Dental implants changed the face of replacing teeth (pun intended). Consisting of a small titanium post inserted directly into the bone of the jaw, the implant supports a dental crown that looks and feels exactly like a real tooth.

Digital Dental Impressions

Many of us grew up during a time when a dental impression was created by biting into a tray full of putty. Yes, it was gross. These days a digital imaging device eliminates that putty-mess! Now, your teeth are “dusted” with a fine powder which is recorded by a special camera which then converts those images into a 3-D model. This model can be used to fabricate restorative dental treatments and assess the condition of your teeth.

Digital X-Rays

In the past decade, digital X-Rays have made the x-ray process safer and more effective. This process reduces radiation exposure by up to 90%. It eliminates the need to develop x-ray film, and it delivers sharper images that can be instantly enhanced for even more detail.

Intra-Oral Camera

If you’ve even wondered what’s going on inside your mouth when the dentist goes digging around in there, then the Intra-Oral camera will make your day! These tiny imaging devices let you see what they see. Images can be saved and printed. They can record video. You can see exactly what’s going on throughout your treatment.

Laser Diagnosis and Treatment

Once relegated to science fiction, lasers are now a part of our everyday lives…from Blu-Ray players to scanning your groceries. And now, they’re part of the dentist’s tool kit! Lasers are being used to detect tiny areas of tooth decay. They can help treat gum disease. They can even remove cancerous tissue. They’re used in surgery and even in cavity treatment!
