DIGITAL X-RAYS & INTRA-ORAL CAMERAS
Our office uses computer generated digital x-rays (radiographs) and intra-oral cameras. Digital radiography has many advantages over traditional film radiography. Digital radiographs requires less radiation and allow us to view images instantly. We can enhance them in a variety of ways to help ensure a more accurate diagnosis. Images are stored electronically and can be retrieved at future visits. Additionally, digital radiographs are environmental friendly by eliminating the use of chemicals to process the film. The Intra-oral camera, about the size of a dental mirror, allows us to take non-radiographic photos of your teeth and surrounding structures. These images, due to their clarity and photo enhancement features, are invaluable in visually communicating to patients their specific dental needs. These images can be stored electronically as well and displayed for future reference.
CEREC® ONE VISIT DENTISTRY
Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic
CEREC crowns are one of most innovative dental technologies to ever emerge.
Rather than wait as long as 2 weeks for your new crown, now you can come to one appointment in our office and walk out with your new CEREC crown the same day. No need for multiple appointments and the intrustion that time brings to your home and work schedule. No need for the anxiety that repeated visits might bring. No messy impressions or temporary crowns.
Instead, we use computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) to capture digital images of your tooth and jaw, design a crown, and then create that crown for installation — all right here in the office.
CEREC crowns look great, too. Made of pure porcelain and no metal, CEREC crowns are strong and look and feel like your real teeth.
