CEREC - Crown in a Day!
Dr. x uses CEREC! CEREC technology is revolutionary to dentistry because it creates a beautiful, esthetic, strong and durable ceramic
restoration that is precisely bonded to the tooth. It is accomplished using a digital scan of the prepared tooth and creating the restorations design using powerful 3D software that allows the dentist to customize the result. The design is wirelessly transmitted to a special milling device that will create your restoration using a dental ceramic.
Because this is done in one visit you do not need to have a bulky, messy impression made of your tooth, you do not need to wear a temporary crown and you do not need to come back on a separate visit, often weeks away, to have your new crown placed. It is all done in one convenient visit that lasts a little over an hour. And with this technology you can have multiple teeth treated at once to save you time.
Vizilite - Oral Cancer Screening
Dr. x and her caring team understand the importance of detecting oral cancer early. If caught early enough, this form of cancer is one of the most curable.
An annual ViziLite Plus exam, in combination with a regular visual examination, provides a comprehensive oral screening procedure for patients at increased risk for oral cancer. The ViziLite Plus exam is painless and fast, and could help save your life.

Dr. x knows that a picture is worth a thousand words especially in dentistry! Dr. x uses small cameras right inside your mouth to take highly magnified digital photos of your teeth. These photos can be displayed on a computer screen for both patient and doctor, and are invaluable in diagnosing and recording dental problems. Intra-oral photos also enables patients to view what the dentist sees when their teeth are being evaluated by the dentist.
Laser Cavity Detector (Diagnodent)
Locating hidden decay before it destroys tooth structure (from the inside out) is a major goal. Finding cavities beneath the hard surfaces is challenging because the disease process can start through microscopic defects in the hard surface can spread into the softer tooth structure beneath the surface.
Recently FDA approved, this amazing laser cavity finder instantly and accurately finds cavities in areas x-rays rarely see and the dental pick misses 76% of the time.
Diagnodent is a major breakthrough that allows us to monitor the areas below the hard surfaces. We can now locate hidden decay, and with treatment stop the spread of the disease before it destroys the tooth from within.
