IV Sedation Dentistry
For patients who want the utmost relaxation, IV sedation is the best option. Experience a “wake up when your procedure is over” type appointment with IV sedation — pain and anxiety management that far surpasses anything else.
Fully integrated CEREC system
cerec primescan INTRAORAL IMAGING
For digital impressions that don’t make you gag, our digital intraoral imaging equipment makes imaging for crowns, bridges, implant restorations, dentures and more worry- and gag-free. Our office’s intraoral imaging unit is the most advanced on the market with full integration for crown fabrication chairside. A full mouth scan can be done in less than a minute instead of having to do a traditional impression with goop in your mouth. The Primescan can simulate orthodontics or design a smile in minutes after scanning your bite!
CEREC Primemill is a chairside milling machine that can produce single-unit restorations, such as crowns and veneers in a single visit. Crowns are designed from a scan of your mouth acquired from the Primescan.
CEREC SpeedFire is sintering oven that rapidly fires crowns manufactured on the primemill. Designed for seamless integration into the CEREC workflow, the CEREC SpeedFire allows us to offer patients the latest technology with fast and accurate scans, quick and precise creation of their ceramic crown all in a single appointment.
SHOWING YOU THE OUTCOME BEFORE WE EVEN TOUCH YOUR TEETH
3D PRINTING AND VIRTUAL DESIGN
Our Formlabs Form 2 SLA 3D printer can fabricate occlusal guards, surgical guides and cosmetic dentistry models — all in-house! If you are interested in a smile makeover using crowns, veneers or cosmetic bonding, you can see a physical 3D model of the procedure outcome, including alterations to the soft or hard tissue around teeth, before you make any decisions or undergo any work.

3D X-RAY IMAGING
For a superior 3D image of your teeth and jaw, our advanced X-ray equipment allows us to see things 2D X-ray imagery simply cannot. Large and small volume sizes help the dentist look into each tooth prior to root canals, to assess bone quality prior to implant placement, as well as to view pathological conditions. This means Dr. B works with the highest degree of precision possible for your best results.
NOMAD X-RAY SOURCES AND ALL DIGITAL IMAGING
You won’t find any X-ray tube heads hanging on our walls, or a film processing room with smelly developing solutions. The use of handheld X-ray units lowers your exposure to radiation. With the back-scatter shield, the operator can stand in the room and quickly take a full series of X-rays without having to set down the X-ray tube head, which means less time with the discomfort of the X-ray sensor in your mouth. Plus all digital imaging allows us to be a completely paperless practice — we have no paper charts and no film images, only digital.
Relax while you’re with us!
Story City Dental wants to ensure your peace-of-mind during any dental visit or procedure. A warm blanket and pillow is available to every patient, as well as overhead HD TVs with digital cable and the option of Bose noise-canceling cordless headphones.
