Here at Fine Dentistry by Design, we use advanced dental techniques and the most current technology available.
Laser is the most profound enhancement in dental technology in decades. Approved by FDA in 1998, the WaterLase can be used for numerous procedures and can be safely used for all ages, and it is 100% safe for the elderly, pregnant women, and even infants! It combines water, air and laser energy to safely treat teeth and gums.
Dr. Wang can perform many traditional dental procedures with fewer shots and less anesthesia. That means a new level of comfort and satisfaction for the entire family. (We get a lot of hugs for this one!)
Advantages of laser Dentistry over traditional Dentistry

- Treatment of canker sores, herpetic and aphthous ulcers
- Less post-op discomfort with less pain medication

Invisalign (clear braces) is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. The invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move your teeth over time to give you the smile you deserve.
Invisalign is also virtually clear, so most people around you probably won't even notice you're wearing it. Even better, it's comfortable without wires and brackets that could irritate your mouth.
Invisalign is also more convenient than traditional braces. The aligners are easily removable, so you choose when you wear them. You're free to take them out whenever you need to. Eating, drinking... you name it. Even if you just need a break from wearing your aligners during a high school reunion or special work event, that's OK. But remember, you need to wear your aligners as prescribed by your doctor in order to achieve your treatment goals.
Invisalign aligners are made just for you with advanced 3-D computerized technology. Your clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth. And only your teeth. Little by little, and over a time determined between you and your dentist, your teeth will gently move to create the smile you've always wanted.
Benefits of digital X-rays:
- Less radiation exposure to the patients
- Instant on-screen images
- Rapid and superior diagnosis
- Image enhancement capabilities (such as magnification, contrast and coloring)
- Easy image-sharing with other dentists or third-party payers
- The digital sensor with "cut corner" design that we use is significantly more comfortable in your mouth than the older, traditional films, which have sharper edges.
- Image from a digital radiograph is significantly clearer than a traditional film.
Due to fluoridation, caries has gone "underground". If you cannot detect the disease, how can you treat it? Dentists often experience anxiety when attempting to diagnose the phenomenon known as hidden caries. A suspicious-looking tooth presents a treatment dilemma for dentists. Should the tooth be opened up? What if no caries is found? Should the tooth just be watched, or does that give caries more time to destroy the tooth's surface?
When we use Diagnodent, it enables us to detect those cavities inside the tooth that routine examinations and x-rays may miss.
DEXcam Intra-Oral Camera
The Intra-Oral Camera is a small digital camera that comfortably fits in your mouth and enables the dentist to show you an enlarged view of each of your teeth onto the computer screen. Not only does this prove to be helpful during diagnosis, but it serves as an educational instrument that allows us to confront problems that are harder to identify by standard mirror examinations.
ViziLite Plus Oral Cancer Screening
ViziLite Plus is a quick, painless exam for the early detection of oral abnormalities that could lead to cancer. The key is early detection, before precancerous cells are visible to the unaided eye, and while they can still be addressed at their most-easily treatable stage. Vizilite Plus is not a replacement for a conventional oral cancer examination, but rather an enhancement to it.
