CEREC crowns offer the following advantages:
CEREC Dental Technology
We’re excited to introduce CEREC Dental Technology to our arsenal of in-house technology. CEREC enables us to fabricate beautiful aesthetic and highly precise dental prosthesis such as crowns, onlays and inlays in a single visit. With CEREC, we can make a digital, 3D model of your teeth without messy impressions. Your new crown, inlay or onlay is designed in-house and then automatically made in our CEREC machine. Usually, we can have your tooth restored in about an hour. No temporary crowns!
80% Less radiation! Computerized equipment and software use x-rays to capture images of your mouth and teeth. Digital radiography is safer than traditional x-rays because no chemicals are used and there is less radiation exposure. The images are instantly viewable, easily enhanced for improved viewing, and can be stored electronically and emailed to specialists and insurance companies.
Laser dentistry reduces the discomfort and in some cases, a suture free option for the treatment of benign tumours, cold sores, crown lengthening, decay removal, gummy smile changes, tongue tie and speech impediment improvements. Lasers may also be applied for early detection of hidden cavities and certain cases to TMD and tooth sensitivity.
This device provides controlled, continuous, hands-free vacuum suction and brilliantly lights up your mouth. You’ll experience enhanced patient comfort from controlled moisture and oral humidity. Additionally, the enhanced visibility will allow us to complete your treatment safely with improved efficiency and great clinical results.
With the iTero Element 5D wand and technology, it’s now easier and safer than ever to detect cavities and monitor your oral health. The intraoral camera takes a quick 3D digital impression without harmful radiation or those uncomfortable x-ray bitewings. With this super accurate digital model of your teeth, your dentist can easily spot problems and even predict issues before they happen.
Frequently Asked Questions
Pain and discomfort at the dentist is a common concern which we take very seriously. Your peace-of-mind is of utmost importance. Using the best tools for the job means your dental procedure is completed as quickly and comfortably as possible, and with great accuracy for a swift recovery. If you’re feeling worried or anxious about a dental visit, please let us know. You’ve got options, and we look forward to providing you with a positive experience.
Sometimes dental anesthesia is required for both your safety and our accuracy and peace-of-mind. Fear or anxiety about needles is very common. That’s why we use The Wand® STA. It’s comfortable to hold (so no wiggles), and the anesthetic is delivered in a slow, consistent, computer regulated flow which means very little or none of that pinching sensation. If you feel anxious about needles, let us know! Your concerns and comfort are important to us.
The needs of each patient are unique. The costs of your procedures will depend on the complexity of your treatment plan. Once the doctor has examined your teeth and gums, we can give you an accurate estimate of the cost. You can submit this estimate to your insurance company to find out what they may be able to cover.
Some of the benefits of using the latest technology include:
• Allowing us to diagnose small problems before they become big issues.
• Quickly and accurately allowing us to assess your oral health.
• Helping us perform work quickly, accurately and gently.
• Greatly reducing your discomfort and any swelling or bleeding.
• Because your procedure will be as un-intrusive as possible, you will feel normal again in no time.
Digital X-rays are safer than convetional x-rays because no chemicals are used and there is 80% less radiation. Your safety is extremely important to us. If you have any concerns about any of our procedures, techniques or technology we encourage you to ask! It’s important to stay informed and make healthy choices.
We reserve the appointment slot exclusively for you. We do not double book. Therefore, we would ask that you give us 48-hours notice to cancel an appointment so we have time to offer the slot to someone else who may be waiting.
