A graduate of Louisiana State University and a member of the American Dental Association, Dr. Todd Canatella helms a staff of specialists well-versed in bite-beautifying procedures and up-to-date on technological advances thanks to courses and seminars. They use digital x-rays to reduce radiation exposure and perform regular checkups and cleanings to keep teeth healthy and well rooted. For grins in need of crowns, inlays, and onlays, Dr. Canatella uses Cerec CAD/CAM technology to complete these procedures in one visit without the usual litany of temporaries, appointments, and in-office sleepovers.
Clients smile whiter and brighter as they emerge from the offices of Solar Teeth Whitening New Orleans, which specializes in whitening treatments that can be performed during a single lunch break. During their signature 30- or 40-minute sessions, technicians slather teeth in a specially formulated gel that activates beneath an array of LED lights. This light-and-gel combination works to boost whiteness 8–12 shades and blast away discoloration caused by excessive coffee, cigarette, or crayon consumption. Clients can also purchase whitening kits to use in the privacy of their own homes or snag an annual membership that keeps smiles bright throughout the year with one whitening session per month.

She also enrolls in continuing education courses in order to master the field’s most cutting-edge techniques and smile-inducing molar jokes.

Although Dr. David P. Colburn has a black belt in karate, he has a gentle touch at Colburn Family Dentistry. He's gathered technology designed to keep patients safe and comfortable.
