Healthy Beautiful Mouths Begin Here...
Digital Imaging & Intraoral Cameras
We utilize digital radiographs and intraoral cameras. Unlike film, these digital images may be enhanced to bring out all of the diagnostic detail. They can be magnified, inverted (white and black instead of black and white), edge enhanced, and contrast enhanced. Window leveling can bring out specific areas of density.
Digital images are unsurpassed for patient education. Many of the same tools that you use for diagnosis can be used to help the patient understand the treatment plan. Also, you can use colorization - showing each density in a different color rather than as a shade of gray - to make the x-rays easier for the patient to understand. Another benefit of digital x-rays is that these types of radiographs use up to 80% less radiation then conventional x-ray filmless radiation and is available in a shorter period of time. The intraoral cameras provide patients with clear and distinctive pictures that allow them to see what the dentist is seeing.
Cerec ® CAD/CAM technology
CEREC® CAD/CAM is the epitome of Modern Dentistry. It means that in just 2 hours you can have a crown! There are no temporaries and no need for a second visit. It's a precise fit. CEREC® CAD/CAM is less invasive and delivers durable, natural looking crowns in a snap. You can say goodbye to gooey impressions, touchy temporaries, and ill-fitting permanent crowns because CEREC® CAD/CAM uses digital imaging so you get a precise fit without all the mess.
No temporary, no second visit, a precise fit CEREC® CAD/CAM crowns look better and are easier to get than their traditional counterparts. In addition, CEREC® CAD/CAM inlays and onlays are metal free, so all you see in the mirror is natural tooth color. They're an excellent alternative to conventional fillings.
About Crowns A dental crown restores a tooth's shape, size, and strength. It fully encases the visible portion of your tooth or dental implant. Once it is permanently bonded in place, only a Dentist or Specialist can remove it. With proper care and good oral hygiene, the life of a crown can range from 5 to 15 years. If a natural tooth-colored porcelain crown is chosen, our CEREC® CAD/CAM treatment gives patients a completed permanent crown in just one office visit. Other types of crowns require two office visits.
