Our Technology

CEREC Porcelain Crowns

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction) is a dental restoration product that permits us to produce an indirect ceramic dental restoration with the help of a variety of computer-assisted technologies, including 3D photography and CAD/CAM. With CEREC, teeth can be restored in a single sitting with the patient, rather than the multiple sittings required with less-advanced techniques. Additionally, with the latest software and hardware updates, crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays can be prepared, using different types of ceramic material.

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off, and have a permanent restoration put on. With CEREC, the process is done within a single appointment. With CEREC, we can use strong, tooth-colored ceramics to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function.

CEREC materials match the composition of natural tooth structure, which means that when hot food or cold drinks are consumed the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so we can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.

Electric Hand Pieces

There are basically two types of hand pieces, air-driven and electric. Electric hand pieces are stronger and more efficient than air-driven counterparts due to the fact that a motor is spinning as opposed to air. This allows the doctor to remove decay at a faster pace. This will cut down on the time it takes to complete a procedure.

Rotary Endodontics

Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often caused by infections causing the tooth pain. Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical hand piece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.

Intraoral Camera
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor to get a closer look at potential issues and future problems. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first-hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.

Digital X-Ray

Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
