At Starlight Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we believe the children in our community deserve the best when it comes to professional dentistry. For this reason, we utilize cutting-edge procedures and the latest technology. Our use of advanced technology allows us to provide a supreme level of care unmatched by other offices in the area.
An intraoral camera is a relatively new piece of dental technology that can also be used to diagnose and prevent potential problems. A standard x-ray may not reveal enough information to make a proper diagnosis. With the use of an intraoral camera, we can capture a magnified image to identify problems that may not be visible to the naked eye.
Most intraoral cameras are shaped like a wand, which is easy to maneuver within the mouth. The images are projected onto a screen so you and your child can see what we see in real time. This allows you to take an active role in your child’s professional care.
If your child has a larger cavity, they may require a full-coverage crown to fix it. Sprig pediatric zirconia crowns is a biocompatible esthetic white alternative to silver crowns for the back teeth and a stronger alternative to plastic resin crowns for the front teeth.

Light Scalpel Frenectomy
Dr. Claire works closely with pediatricians, lactation consultants and speech pathologists to help improve the quality of life of infants and young children who are struggling with challenges of nursing due to lip or tongue ties. We strongly recommend non-invasive options with a lactation consultant before perusing any surgical treatment.
Dr. Claire uses Light Scalpel laser technology to perform frenectomy. No general or local anesthesia is needed. Laser provides coagulation so no scissors or sutures are needed. The baby can feed immediately after the procedure.
