Preventative Dental Care
Dental Exams, Digital X-Rays & Cleanings
Along with daily brushing and flossing habits, regular dental care ranks as one of the biggest contributing factors for enjoying a healthy and attractive smile.
At Clear Sky Dental, our patients receive only the latest and most advanced dental care possible. During your preventative dental care appointment, you'll undergo a full series of digital X-rays that Dr. Lee, your dentist in Gresham Oregon, will use to determine the current state of your oral health. Next, Dr. Lee will conduct a thorough evaluation of your mouth to look for any signs of dental decay or disease. Your examination will also include an oral cancer screening. Early detection of oral cancer is key to helping patients recover from the disease.
Once your examination is complete, Dr. Lee will use the information he has collected to create a customized oral health plan that will keep your teeth and gums looking and feeling their best. Dr. Lee will provide his recommendation for any advanced treatments, such as filling, implants or root scaling, that your customized oral health may plan require.
Finally, your preventive appointment will conclude with a thorough cleaning of your teeth by one of our experienced and gentle dental hygienists. Cleanings offer our hygienist the opportunity to remove tartar deposits that have accumulated on the surface of your teeth and along the gum line. When left in place, tartar contributes to the development of gum disease and tooth decay.
Made from a durable clear resin, dental sealants help to protect teeth from the effects of dental plaque and decay. After a gentle application by Dr. Lee, patients no longer need to worry about dealing with the effects of tooth decay on treated teeth, as the sealant works to provide an invisible layer of protection that prevents plaque acids from harming their tooth enamel.
Dental sealants are ideal for younger patients who don't yet possess the attention to detail and manual dexterity required to properly brush and floss their teeth. Hard to reach areas of the mouth, such as the back molars, frequently suffer the effects of plaque and tartar buildup when kids are allowed to brush on their own. With dental sealants, parents can help to protect the long-term health of their child's teeth by preventing the cavities that can permanently alter the complexion of a smile.
If you or any member of the family participates in sports, a mouthguard offers the protection needed to safeguard the health of your teeth and gums. At Clear Sky Dental, dentist in Gresham Oregon Dr. Jason Lee can provide patients with a custom-made mouthguard designed to offer the greatest protection possible.
Unlike the types of boil-and-bite mouthguards you can purchase at the store, a custom-made mouthguard from Clear Sky Dental offers a number of significant advantages. Custom built to perfectly fit your smile helps to ensure your mouthguard fits comfortably and securely over your teeth.
Improved comfort will help contribute to improved performance on the field, court or diamond as you can better focus knowing you don't have to worry keeping an ill-fitting mouthguard in place when you need it the most. Studies have even shown that wearing a custom mouthguard can lower the risk for concussion thanks to the improved stability of the head, neck and jaw the mouthguard provides.
Contact our office today to schedule your mouthguard fitting so you can take the field with confidence.
Cosmetic Dental Care
Just one look at the remarkable difference teeth whitening treatments can make to the color and complexion of a patient's smile and it's easy to see why whitening has quickly become the most commonly performed cosmetic dental procedure in the U.S.
Teeth whitening offers a safe and affordable solution for any patient looking to lighten the shade of their teeth. At Clear Sky Dental, we provide patients with teeth whitening trays they can use at home. Our trays use whitening agents that are far stronger and more effective than any product you can buy over-the-counter. Simply wear the tray as directed until your teeth reach the desired shade. That's it!

If crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth have caused you to lose confidence in your smile, Invisalign orthodontic treatment is the solution you've been looking for. As a Gresham Invisalign dentist, Dr. Lee can straighten a patient's smile quickly, conveniently, and most importantly, discreetly.
Unlike traditional metal braces that use unsightly metal brackets and wires to straighten a patient's smile, Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners that blend seamlessly with the natural color and complexion of your teeth. Invisalign aligners sit over a patients teeth like a mouthguard, working to gradually move them into the desired position.
Invisalign offers a number of advantages when compared to traditional metal braces that include:
- Improved comfort
- Shorter treatment times
- More discreet
- Eat what you want
- Brush and floss like before
Additionally, due to a unique collaboration, every Invisalign case at Clear Sky Dental is reviewed by a board-certified orthodontist. There are very few dental practices in America that can offer this service.
To find out whether Invisalign is the right orthodontic option for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Gresham Invisalign dentist Dr. Jason Lee today!
For patients who want to improve the appearance of their smiles, dental veneers offer a simple and affordable solution. Made of incredibly thin sheets of porcelain or composite filling, dental veneers sit over the surface of a patients teeth, thereby altering the appearance of their smile.
Dental veneers look and function just like your natural teeth, and make an ideal solution for patients with:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misshapen or crooked teeth
- Teeth stained in ways untreatable by whitening
- Large gaps in their smile they wished covered
Restorative Dental Care
CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
For patients missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay, dental crowns offer an affordable and lasting solution for restoring the form and function back to your smile. Unlike traditional dental crowns that take multiple office visits to place, we offer same-day crowns at our dental office in Gresham.
Dental crowns act as replacement teeth and sit on top of a dental implant. A dental crown makes an ideal treatment option for patients missing one or more teeth from their smiles. Utilizing CEREC same-day dental crown technology, dentist in Gresham Oregon Dr. Jason Lee can restore a smile back to health in as little as one office visit.
Don't wait to start smiling with confidence. Contact our office to see the difference a CEREC same-day crown can make to your oral health and self-confidence.
Dental implants act like replacement roots for a tooth badly damaged by dental decay or disease. A dental implant is placed directly into the jawbone to act as an anchor for a prosthetic device, such as a dental crown. Dental implants make the most effective solution for replacing a missing tooth.
When a gap develops in a patients smile, the teeth that neighbor the gap will slowly start to shift into the space left vacant by the missing tooth. Over time, this will change a patient's bite and could make eating more difficult. Protecting a patient's long-term oral health requires that this space is filled so that the remaining natural teeth stay in the correct position.
Dental implants offer an affordable and lasting solution for restoring a patient's smile back to health. No other dental treatment comes as close to replacing the form, function and appearance of a natural tooth as a dental implant when paired with a dental crown.
