Cutting-Edge Technology

Say Hello to Modern Dentistry

At Lakeshore Dental Studio, we use modern dental tools to help us enhance patient experience. State-of-the-art technology ensures accuracy, promotes efficiency, and enables precision. We use CBCT, intraoral cameras, and digital radiographs to take detailed images of your teeth and gums for diagnosis and treatment planning.

We are committed to your comfort. Using new technology, like the DentalVibe, allows us to ensure a painless experience throughout your treatment. The DentalVibe is a painless injection system that gently shakes your teeth and gums so you won't notice any discomfort associated with injections. This is just one small step we can take to eliminate any potential fear or anxiety and ensure we are providing you with the best patient experience possible.

state-of-the-art equipment

efficient, accurate, and convenient

We invest in the latest dental technology because it enhances patient experience and makes your dental visits as efficient and accurate as possible. At Lakeshore Dental Studio, we use these tools to keep you happy, healthy, and comfortable:

Your Entire Mouth in a Single Scan

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Dr. Kella may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. We use this technology to:

  • Plan surgical extractions for impacted teeth
  • Diagnose temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Ensure that implant placement is completely accurate
  • Evaluate your jaw, sinuses, nerve canals, and nasal cavity
  • Determine bone structure and tooth orientation

Improving Every Aspect of Care

Intraoral cameras can save time, improve accuracy, promote communication, and enhance positive patient experiences.  With intraoral cameras, we are able to capture detailed images of a patient’s mouth. This technology has many benefits, including:

  • Enhanced communication with patients: You’ll see an accurate picture of your oral health on the monitor during your exam. Dr. Kella can go over everything you see to keep you informed and educated.
  • Powerful magnifying capabilities: This means that Dr. Kella can examine your mouth in extreme detail to make an accurate, thorough diagnosis.
  • Visual proof for coverage: If you want coverage for a treatment, your insurance provider often needs visual proof of your condition. Just as the high-resolution images show you exactly what’s happening in your mouth, they do the same for your provider, bolstering your treatment case.

Detailed Imaging

Digital radiography (known as digital x-ray) uses an electronic sensor instead of traditional x-ray film to capture images of your teeth, jaw structure, and gums. The digital images are then easily stored directly to a computer in our office. The benefits of digital radiography include:

  • Minimal radiation
  • Images available immediately
  • Increased visibility of hard-to-see oral issues

Intraoral Scanner

Our state of the art intraoral scanner is used to capture a direct optical impression. Patients will no longer need to have impression material used on them. With this technology, patients will have their oral impressions taken virtually . The scanner projects a light source onto the area. The images are captured by imaging sensors and are processed by scanning software, which then produces a 3D surface model. Patients will be able to view what their new smile will look like immediately with a smile simulation!

Elizabeth Hathaway

"I've seen Dr. Kella a few times to get a crown and have some cavities filled. After my first visit, he and his staff were up front about the work I would need done and how much it would cost. There were no financial surprises. He and his staff are friendly and professional. My appointments always start on time. The quality of the dental work has been excellent as well. I also feel the office is managing COVID concerns and precautions well. They have it coordinated so that I'm not running into other patients in the waiting room or hallway. They take my temperature, provide hand sanitizer, and do a pre-appt questionnaire. I would absolutely recommend this office!"



Melissa DeCoster

"Love our Dentist! They do such a good job. Also if your a little squeamish about going to the dentist this is the place for you! They have a TV on the ceiling and will play anything you want on Netflix. Then when they prop you back up they resume your show, quickest cleaning ever. Doctor is great, he is attentive and personable. Would highly recommend."
