Great dentistry is a process. A smile done the ‘wright’ way is a process that has been developed over a thirty year period of clinical experience and continued education by Dr. Richard Wright. The procedures used to obtain the ‘wright’ smile are heavily dictated by the use of the microscope, allowing Dr. Wright to find problems much earlier than if they were just being viewed by the naked human eye. Microscope implementation allows Dr. Wright to focus on preventative care, rather than restorative care. Dr. Wright is extremely detail oriented, which means that at the end of the smile creation process, not only will your smile look amazing, but it will have been …

Quality dental work starts with the use of a microscope and ends with attention to detail. With the aid of power magnification, Dr. Wright is able to spot bacteria sooner. This means he is often able to catch problems sooner, fixing them while they are minor problems. This also means that Dr. Wright is able to get rid of more decay, and provide a better fit to major dental work, ensuring that your treatment will last longer… saving you time and money in the future!
Micro dentistry in relation to fillings: Dr. Wright finds and repairs cracks in teeth on about 90% of all fillings being repaired. Untreated, these cracks become larger, eventually breaking the tooth and making a crown necessary. With micro dentistry, crown prevention is a possibility!
Micro-dentistry in relation to crowns: It’s never to late to practice preventative care! Even if you require a crown, micro dentistry can ensure it’s longevity. Often we find cracks that extend beyond the edge of a crown allowing bacteria to get under it. Micro-dentistry discovers these cracks and dictates how to proceed. When these cracks are found, the crowns are extended down far enough to seal them, ensuring proper longevity of the crown.
Micro-dentistry in relation to sealants: 50% of all sealants fail in one year. 80% fail in 5 years. The attention to detail afforded by the microscope in combination with air abrasion (a miniature sandblaster- see our ‘technology’ page for more information), is giving Dr. Wright a near 100% success rate at the 5 year mark. The difference is significant!
Saving your teeth starts with preventative measures and good oral hygiene. At any age, regular check-ups and cleanings are the first steps to saving your teeth. When you visit regularly, we are able to monitor your smile and catch problems early. Combined with the use of microscopes, Dr. Wright is dedicated to stopping problems before they become traumatic. There are many ways to save your teeth! Let Dr. Wright help!

Dr. Wright believes that the best value in dental care is providing patients with quality work that is designed to last longer than traditional dental care. Dr. Wright is able to obtain this through the use of microscopes. He is among 2-4% of dentists in the United States who utilize microscope technology during treatment to more effectively spot, treat and prevent problems.
In addition to using magnification, lasting dental work involves several things including: -controlling excessing grinding of teeth.
- the proper selection of materials
- placing these materials with a high degree of precision
- computer analysis of your bite to make sure your bite does not destroy new or existing dental work
Ultimately, Dr. Wright’s decades of clinical experience, hours of additional training and attention to detail will help you preserve your teeth and your work.
