CEREC® – One Visit Crowns

The CEREC® camera takes a 3D image of the dental preparation & then designs & creates the milled inlay, onlay or crown via computer within one visit. The CEREC® system’s milling process produces a durable, aesthetically pleasing, biocompatible ceramic restoration milled from a ceramic block to suit your particular needs quickly & economically.

Digital X-rays

We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images that require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor & instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately.

Intraoral Cameras

Ever been curious about what goes on during your dental care visits? With our intraoral cameras, you don´t have to be curious anymore! We can take digital photos or videos of your teeth. With the images produced by the intraoral camera, patients can see each of their teeth & dentists can indicate problems such as broken teeth, plaque, decay, gum disease, defective fillings & so on. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental needs by seeing what the dentist sees & then having it explained.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is the revolutionary way to help you get even, straight teeth without noticeable, painful metal braces. Virtually undetectable, Invisalign® aligners are made of strong, clear plastic that gradually guide your teeth into perfect alignment. Unlike metal braces, they have no wires or brackets. Tooth impressions are made, from which Invisalign® develops customized aligners that will slide directly over your teeth. Aligners are typically worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 6-48 months—no longer than you would wear traditional metal braces. Aligners are replaced every two weeks as your teeth shift into place.

Invisalign® Teen

Straight teeth can do a lot for a teenager’s self-confidence, but many are embarrassed by traditional metal braces. With Invisalign® Teen, they can get a perfect smile using nearly invisible aligners. As the teeth shift into place, we’ll craft new aligners, and we’ll even make getting replacements easier, since we know teens tend to be accident-prone. These aligners will also feature wear-indicator buttons, so the doctor and the patient can be certain a schedule is being properly adhered to.

Mercury-Free Dentistry

We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use new advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. We made this choice several years ago, making us very proficient with the techniques required to place tooth-colored fillings. It’s just one more way that we show our care for you. Your safety & aesthetics are our primary concerns!

One Day Inlays/Onlays by Cerec®

Porcelain inlays & onlays are an excellent, conservative solution to cavity pain, reduced chewing strength, & general degeneration of the back teeth. Virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, inlays & onlays discreetly restore teeth to an optimal state of health. They resemble natural teeth so closely that only you will know the truth. And now with CEREC®, we can complete same-day inlays & onlays, avoiding the need for patients to come back 2-3 weeks later once their permanent crown is made by a dental lab.

Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection is key in the battle against cancer, & this is no different with oral cancer. Even if you don’t smoke, keep in mind that 25% of oral-cancer diagnoses are for non-smokers. It’s important that every patient receive a simple & pain-free exam. Remember that when caught early, oral cancer has an 80 to 90% survival rate. So don’t put off your examination another minute!

Professional Breath Control

Bad breath (halitosis) is not only embarrassing, but it may also be a sign of a medical problem. Its most common causes include dry mouth, consumption of pungent foods, insufficient tooth maintenance (such as infrequent brushing or flossing) & periodontal disease. If you suffer from chronic bad breath, we can help. We offer a full range of BreathRX® professional mouth care products to help take care of bad breath.
