About Us

About Our Asheville Smiles Practice

Founded in 1993, the office of Kani Louise Nicolls, DDS, PA was built on the foundation of providing a personal touch, warm atmosphere, and a vision to provide the highest quality of oral health services.

Since then, we’ve implemented revolutionary changes when it comes to technologically advanced care and smile rehabilitation. From dental implant restorations and same-day CEREC crowns to laser dentistry and gum disease treatments, Dr. Kani and our team have transformed thousands of smiles.

Same Day Smiles and CEREC Crowns

CEREC technology endows us with the ability to create custom milled crowns and veneers during a single appointment. While you wait, your new smile is crafted from a solid piece of porcelain. You can enjoy a one visit crown, or even a more complex one visit smile makeover.

Laser Dentistry for Gentler, Less Invasive Procedures

Our Waterlase dental laser is perfect for recontouring gumlines, treating cold sores, performing biopsies, and minimally-invasive frenectomies. But it’s also useful for fillings! Rather than relying on the use of a drill, the majority of the filling procedure is completed with the laser. In many cases, local anesthetic isn’t even necessary.

Computerized Anesthesia Delivery

The Wand is a computerized local anesthesia delivery system that’s more comfortable than you would ever imagine. You may not even feel it as we numb a single tooth, but you will be able to tell that the side of your face isn’t numb for hours afterward! Only one tooth will be numb, making it easier for you to go about your day as usual.

Sedation Dentistry in Asheville

As a DOCS certified sedation dentist, Dr. Kani has options to help you remain safe and comfortable during any appointment. If you feel anxious or want to take the edge off, just let us know! Choose between oral sedation and convenient nitrous oxide.

Tekscan Occlusal Modulation

The way your teeth bite together can impact everything from TMJ disorder to headaches to abnormal tooth wear. Tekscan records the intensity of your bite, while registering data every 300ths of a second. As such, we can make adjustments to calibrate your bite in a way that accommodates optimal health and function.
