General and cosmetic dentist offering dental implants, implant restoration, veneers, teeth whitening, full mouth reconstruction in Springfield, Chicopee, Wilbraham, Longmeadow, East Longmeadow, Ludlow, Enfield, CT, and the surrounding Western Massachusetts and Southern Connecticut area
David I. Peck, DMD, is a highly regarded general and cosmetic dentist who has more than 30 years of experience using sophisticated techniques to dramatically improve the appearance of patients’ smiles. Dr. Peck completed advanced cosmetic dentistry and neuromuscular training at the distinguished Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). He also received certification in laser treatment for cosmetic soft tissue re-contouring and periodontal therapy from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He has been voted “Best Dentist” twelve years in a row by the Advocate Best of the Valley Readers’ Poll. In fact, one patient of the practice who had a smile makeover dubbed Dr. Peck the “Wizard of Worthington Street” and went on to compliment his team as the “Magical Staff of Stars.”
Dr. Peck performs a wide range of advanced general and cosmetic dentistry procedures, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, crowns, composite bonding, dental bridges, dental implants, dental implant restoration and full mouth reconstruction. He also offers a number of general dentistry procedures, as well as neuromuscular and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) therapy. Dr. Peck uses the latest technologically advanced equipment in laser dentistry to perform a variety of general and cosmetic dentistry procedures, including surgical gum tissue procedures. Dr. Peck is also one of the few cosmetic dentists who use painless wand anesthesia, a computer-controlled device that releases a steady flow of anesthesia to prevent discomfort.
Dr. Peck and his team strive to provide each patient with comfortable care, and, therefore, use minimally invasive techniques and innovative technologies whenever possible. For instance, Dr. Peck utilizes computer imaging to allow patients to see what their smiles will look like after they undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures. He also uses Cerec 3-D technology to create personalized porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays during a single visit. This helps eliminate multiple visits and multiple injections.
Dr. Peck also employs the DEKA CO2 laser for soft tissue procedures, such as dental implant and periodontal (gum) procedures, and other types of oral surgery. About 80 to 90 percent of the body’s soft tissue content is made of water, and carbon dioxide (CO2) is highly absorbed in water. Thus, a laser with a CO2 wavelength is superior to other lasers because it is more effectively absorbed into soft tissue via the large amount of water present there. This allows Dr. Peck to perform soft tissue procedures precisely and accurately with little to no bleeding, minimal post-operative swelling and less trauma to surrounding tissue. This means a quicker recovery for the patient with very little discomfort, if any.
In addition, Dr. Peck utilizes the Biolase WaterLase iPlus laser for hard and soft tissue procedures. The iPlus laser is much faster than a conventional drill, is minimally invasive and is virtually painless. Many patients forgo anesthetic before undergoing dental treatments such as cavity preparation. With the iPlus laser, there is less risk of hard tissue mini fractures and soft tissue thermal damage, and no risk of cross contamination. These technologically advanced tools and techniques are what attract patients from all over Massachusetts and Connecticut, including Longmeadow, East Longmeadow, Ludlow, Chicopee, Wilbraham, Enfield, CT, and the surrounding area, to Dr. Peck for all their cosmetic dentistry needs.
