Clinical studies have shown that fluoride is highly effective in preventing tooth decay, which can cause more complicated issues related to your dental health. We offer various fluoride treatments and at-home products; our hygienists evaluate each patient’s needs and make recommendations accordingly.
A Sealant is highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing cannot reach. Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. They will hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed. Children, as well as adults, can benefit from sealants.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Lasers have been used in dentistry for over two decades, gaining on-going popularity due to creating a more enjoyable patient experience and a shorter healing time. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) delivers safe, non-ionizing laser waves to the tissues of the mouth. Its uses include killing bacteria, treating cold sores and canker sores, surgical gum procedures, and advanced whitening.

We use composite resin to create beautiful dental restorations that will last. With these new materials it is possible to treat decay conservatively rather than “watching it” get bigger and deeper in order to justify treatment. This minimizes treatment complications and maximizes the longevity of the restoration.
Dental crowns are used for many purposes, including: restoring damaged teeth, restoring appearance and function, and even realigning improperly positioned teeth.
Vibrant Dentistry is proud to be one of less than 20% of dental offices in Arizona that have invested in CEREC technology. With CEREC we are able to provide high quality, beautiful porcelain crowns and dental restorations in one visit. In most cases this eliminates the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns.
When a tooth is missing several negative processes are occurring. These include the shifting of remaining teeth which causes bite changes that can result in jaw problems as well as bone loss in the area which often results in changes to a persons face including wrinkles at the corners of the mouth. Thus it is important to not only consider the replacement of chewing surfaces of missing teeth, but also the replacement of the roots of missing teeth in order to prevent these things from occurring.
Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth including the prevention of jaw bone loss. A person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
There are many types of dentures for replacing missing teeth including implant dentures that can restore your ability to chew the foods you love. We work with top-of-the-line dental specialists and dental labs to ensure the final result is one you will love. The team at Vibrant Dentistry will help you understand your options so you can choose what is best for you.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of teeth. They require a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. There are large variances in the durability and beauty of veneers depending upon the lab who has created them.
All of our dental restorations are Made in America with the best technology and top-of-the-line dental labs. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Is safe, quick, and inexpensive! Over-the-counter bleaching agents are less effective and can cause irritation to the gums due to their “one size fits most” design. By utilizing the products our practice recommends in a comfortable custom-fit tray, you will experience a whiter smile in a safer way.
