CEREC is a CAD/ CAM technology that allows us to make your crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers in only one day. We can also design your bridge and implant crown right in front of your eyes! With CEREC, you no longer have to deal with temporaries in most cases. Since you don’t have to come back for a second visit, you don’t have to take unnecessary time off work. Plus, you don’t have to get numb over and over again. Now that’s something to smile about 🙂 In addition, the fit of a CEREC crown is like no other. In most cases, very little adjustment is necessary and your crown fits like it has always belonged in your mouth!
3D X-rays are also known as Cone Beam x-rays. This machine allows us to take a 3D scan of your teeth and jaw. We can view your teeth and bone structures from all angles. This means we can catch problem areas early and diagnose problems others can’t. 3D x-rays also allows us to carry out your implant surgery with unmatched precision and accuracy. It also makes your treatment safer because we can avoid vital structures like your sinuses and nerves!
Intraoral cameras allows us to take a real time photo inside of your mouth and show you what’s going on right on the TV screen. We can show you defective old fillings, cracks and cavities, so that you can know exactly what’s going on in your mouth and where the problem areas are!
Digital impressions allows us to generate a virtual model of your mouth so you no longer have to deal with the goopy impression materials that make you gag! This method is more accurate than the traditional impressions and results in faster treatment! Please be aware that not all cases and not all patients are candidates for a digital impression!
Using digital sensors rather than the film sensors, we can take an x-ray of your mouth and see it immediately. This also cuts your radiation dose by a significant amount. Digital X-rays make your dental treatment faster and safer! Soft Tissue Lasers We utilize soft tissue lasers when necessary to help perform your dental surgery or crown/ bridge procedure. The soft tissue lasers minimize bleeding and shorten healing time. We can also use the lasers to re-contour your gum tissues for a more pleasing smile.
