CEREC One Visit Restorations

The CEREC 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds. This eliminates the need for unpleasant silicone impressions.

CEREC restorations are milled out of a solid ceramic block in just a few minutes. They are then ready to be placed immediately. This eliminates the need for temporary fillings and crowns. It also means that you need only one appointment. And you don’t have to wait for weeks until the ceramic restoration is finished.

Because CEREC restorations can be placed immediately, you need only one appointment. And you benefit from tooth restorations which have demonstrated their durability time and time again.

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays, known as radiographs, are essential diagnostic tools for the prevention of serious dental diseases and complications. They provide the dentist with valuable information not available through a regular dental exam. Identifying such problems early saves you time, money and unnecessary pain.

Patients often wonder if digital dental x-rays are safe. While x-rays do use low-level radiation to capture images, the amount of radiation exposure a patient receives from a full mouth series of dental x-rays is equal to what a person normally receives in a single day from natural sources present in our everyday lives. With precautions in place, x-rays are perfectly safe.

Dental x-rays are not taken on every check-up visit. A full mouth series is recommended for new patients and is generally good for four to six years. Bite-wing x-rays (x-rays of top and bottom teeth biting together) are generally recommended once or twice a year.

Intra-Oral Camera

While X-rays provide valuable information that we can’t get from any other source, they can’t show you everything that’s going on in your mouth. That’s why we have invested in an intraoral camera, a highly advanced piece of diagnostic equipment, which allows you to see what we see inside your mouth.

The intraoral camera is approximately the size of a dental mirror. It serves as a tiny video camera that allows us to zoom in on one tooth, and give you a “video tour “ of your entire mouth. The images are displayed on a computer monitor, so you’ll be able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities NEXT to filling and excessive wear.

LASER

We use a diode laser as an adjunct to many procedures. A diode laser is a safe and COMFORTABLE method to achieve control of bleeding and remove excess tissue It allows us to perform these procedures at a higher LEVEL OF QUALITY.
