Same Day Crowns
Dr Knause uses Cerec same day crown technology. In most cases, patients leave on the same day with their permanent crown. No more temporary crowns. Digital scans of the teeth and bite replace the goopy impressions with much better accuracy. Our crowns are high strength, metal free restorations.
Ozone Therapy, Cold Laser Therapy
Dr Knause applies ozone in several different ways, depending on the need. Ozone is a special type of oxygen gas that has been used for sanitation purposes for many years. It works wonders in dentistry!
Cold Laser Therapy is use after every procedure. The cold laser helps with reducing soreness and sensitivity.

Dr. K Clear Aligners provides personal, customized care that takes out the middle man. We scan you right in the office. No goopy impressions. No more waiting on laboratories.

Some people do not like the appearance of darker pigmented areas on their gums. We offer a procedure called laser depigmentation. Low power laser is used to gently erase the pigment from just under the surface. The discomfort of the procedure is so minimal that it can usually be done with just topical anesthetic. Healing is fast and results generally last from 1-5 years.
