Do you hate your crooked teeth and not having that perfect smile you’ve always wanted? Don’t worry any longer, because at Back Mountain Dental, Wilkes Barre / Scranton Dentist, Dr. James DeFinnis and his highly trained staff can straighten your teeth, without the “metal mouth” look of traditional braces? Good thing there’s Invisalign. This system involves a series of custom-made, clear, and removable plastic aligners for your teeth. You would have to wear each pair of aligners for two weeks. The treatment length depends on how much straightening your teeth need, but often the full program takes less than a year. Because it’s plastic, it won’t irritate your mouth as much as metal braces do. Our office in Dallas / Shavertown the NEPA area is a Premier Invisalign Provider. Being a Premier Invisalign Provider our office achieved a certain level of clinical training and experience in treating patients with the Invisalign system than most other general dental offices in the area. So make the right choice when deciding on Invisalign choose an office that is a Premier Provider for great results. Invisalign is affordable and we can also arrange low monthly payments with Care Credit.


Laser whitening and plasma arc lights like Zoom, BriteSmile, Rembrant, and other similar methods can’t whiten your teeth as much as Deep Bleaching™ can. Now, patients who were unable to have their teeth whitened because of sensitivity or have bleach-resistant teeth can get whiter teeth. This is also the only recognized technique to effectively whiten tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time. Deep Bleaching requires two appointments following the consultation. The first session starts with an in-office bleaching. However, don’t expect a tremendous color change yet after this session. This will simply condition your teeth so that it will be able to absorb oxygen more readily from the bleach in your at-home bleaching trays. The at-home trays are worn for 14 consecutive nights, after that, the final Deep Bleaching will be performed in our office.


A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material like ceramic or porcelain, placed on a tooth’s surface. This is done to protect a damaged tooth, or for aesthetic purposes. We offer different kinds of veneers:

  • Da Vinci
  • Lumineers

Each kind has its own advantages and disadvantages. Ask a trusted dentist in the Wilkes Barre / Scranton area like Dr. James DeFinnis about which one would be perfect for you.
