- CEREC® crowns are made in one visit, saving you time.
- With CEREC®, there is no need for a temporary crown, which eliminates potential discomfort.
- CEREC® crowns have no metal in them and they mimic the color and appearance of your natural teeth.

Using clear, undetectable aligners, Invisalign® allows dental patients with crooked teeth to stealthily straighten their alignment rather than using traditional (and often painful) metal braces. Invisalign® orthodontics are removable and individually customized to fit the patient’s specific treatment plan.
Digital X-rays are a progressive technology that employs up to 90 percent less radiation exposure than traditional dental film. They have also proven to be a tremendous patient education tool. Almost immediately after digital X-rays are taken, they can be presented on a computer monitor for the patient to see and understand. The quality of these images is superior to the X-rays of yesteryear, leading to more efficient diagnosis and treatment.
The intraoral camera is also a valuable tool in patient education. With this revolutionary technology, patient and dentist can take a video tour of the mouth, identifying trouble spots and possible treatment options along the way. This tiny camera allows patients to see before and after images of dental treatment. An intraoral camera’s advanced imaging allows Dr. J. Brent Gorrell to identify small fractures in the teeth, areas of dental decay, and even the smallest of dental concerns. Examinations with the intraoral camera allow patients the ability to get involved with their treatment and get excited about their results. To arrange a consultation with Dr. Gorrell and his skilled dentistry team, contact our Los Altos area cosmetic dentistry office.
Invisalign® aligners are one of the most important advances in orthodontic care. Using clear, undetectable aligners, Invisalign® allows dental patients with crooked teeth to stealthily straighten their alignment rather than using traditional (and often painful) metal braces. Invisalign® orthodontics are removable and individually customized to fit the patient’s specific treatment plan. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners require no pulling, twisting, or tightening; no shots, drills, or metal.
For more information on orthodontics using Invisalign®, visit our general dentistry page. If you would like to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation, contact Dr. J. Brent Gorrell – serving Los Altos, Palo Alto, and Mountain View. After a careful examination, Dr. Gorrell can help you determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
