At Masterpiece Smiles in Tulsa, OK, our goal is twofold: to give our patients a healthy mouth and to give them their self-confidence back.
As a patient at Masterpiece Smiles, you don’t have to choose between a homey, welcoming feeling, great results, and the latest technology. We provide all three.
We know that for some people a visit to the dentist causes anxiety. Your comfort is very important to us. That’s why our staff has advanced training in comfort techniques, customer service, and support.
You’ll be treated with warmth and respect from the moment you walk in the door. We will try to make you as comfortable as possible. When it’s time for your procedure, we have a couple of options that will ease your anxiety:
- Nitrous oxide. Also, known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen. You breathe it in through a small mask that fits over your nose. One of the best advantages about nitrous oxide is that it works as soon as you start breathing it in, but when you stop, the effects go away fast.
- Oral medication. We also offer sedation in pill form. You will take the pill about an hour before coming your appointment. Oral medication is different than nitrous oxide in that the effects don’t wear off as quickly. That means you’ll need to find someone to drive you to and from our office. Oral medication helps when your anxiety and worry is moderate to severe.
Our staff also makes it a point to stay up on all of the latest dental technology. Dr. Jan Cobble routinely takes 100-200 hours of continuing education every year. That doesn’t mean he just sits in a lecture hall. His education includes hands-on, participatory experience.
Being invested in the latest dental technology means that we can catch disease earlier, lessen pain and recovery times related to procedures, and correct years of dental neglect.
This newest technology can give you better results faster. Here are some of the many state-of-the-art dental services we provide:
Advanced Restorative Dentistry
When you have damaged or missing teeth, restorative dentistry treatments like dental crowns, bridges, or implants can fix them. We can make your teeth look and work like normal again.
If you have some cosmetic flaws in your smile, we have the answer. We offer:
Dental veneers. These thin porcelain shells are bonded to the fronts of your teeth and made to look like healthy teeth .
Teeth whitening. We offer a professional-strength teeth whitening system that uses a laser to activate a bleaching gel. We also offer take-home trays that you can use at your convenience with a professional whitening agent.
Teeth contouring. We can transform misshapen teeth into smooth, beautiful teeth with teeth contouring. All it involves is carefully removing a small amount of enamel from your affected teeth.
We can get rid of excess gum tissue for both cosmetic and health benefits by using a special dental laser. Using the laser, we gently remove the problem gum tissue that’s causing a problem, whether it’s an uneven gumline or a gummy smile. The laser cauterizes the gums as it gets rid of the excess tissue. There’s no bleeding or need for sutures. Most patients will not feel any pain, either.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment consisting of a series of clear plastic trays that are custom-made for your teeth. They’re nearly invisible when worn, but they can move crooked teeth and adjust your bite.
Laser Periodontal Disease Treatment
Another technology that Dr. Cobble is trained in is Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). This technique uses a laser to painlessly remove infected gum tissue. The laser only targets the infected area, so healthy gum tissue is left untouched.
Since one of our goals is to give our patients their self-confidence back, our services extend beyond just dental. Patients often find that they lines and wrinkles have formed around their lips. This happens because your skin has lost some of its collagen. Dr. Cobble has been trained in SmoothLase™ Anti-wrinkle therapy. SmoothLase™ is a gentle laser light that’s used to stimulate new collagen growth.
By stimulating new collagen, your skin will lift and tighten. This treatment can also address sagging jowls (the area beneath and beside your chin). It’s like an instant facelift, but without the surgery.
