- Cerec – The placement of CEREC crowns only requires one visit to Enhance Dental! Traditional crowns require at least two visits to a dentist, but because CEREC crowns are made using a sophisticated CAD/CAM system to produce all-ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays, partial crowns and veneers, Dr. Stark is able to give you any of these in a single visit!
CEREC restorations have been done by CEREC-certified dentists for over 25 years and are unusually durable. While tooth preparation for the crown still has to be done, wax moulds are not required as the dentist uses CAD/CAM software to create a 3D model of your new tooth, and then uses the onsite milling machine to create your new tooth from a high-quality ceramic block that matches the color of your existing teeth. If staining is required to create a perfect color match your doctor will do that too, fit your crown and then polish it – all in one visit!
- Digital xrays – Dental x-rays are essentially pictures of the bones, teeth and the soft tissue around these. Digital x-ray pictures are taken to reveal all possible problems with the jaw, mouth and teeth including photos of dental problems that aren’t visible to the naked eye such as bone loss, un-erupted wisdom teeth and cavities.
There are four types of dental x-rays which may be taken by your dentist for different reasons. Bitewing x-rays are used to expose cavities between upper and lower teeth and how well the bit is adjusted; periapical x-rays take pictures of the roots of teeth and bone below the gum line; occlusal x-rays photograph the roof and floor or the mouth and panoramic x-rays provide the dentist with a view of the whole mouth, including the jaws, nasal area, sinuses, teeth and jaw joints.
- Intraoral camera – An intraoral camera has a magnifying effect and is used by a dentist to take photos of the outside of gums or teeth. Intraoral cameras usually look like big pens and are effective tools used by dentists to reveal dental issues such as cracked teeth and tooth decay.
Intraoral cameras save both patients and dentists a lot of time as they can take multiple pictures which are easily printed and duplicated if necessary. As the camera is used together with a computer screen, your dentist will show you what is found in real time as well!
- Laser dentistry – Laser-light can remove or shape tissue, and this is what it is used for in dentistry too. Laser dentistry has been used by dentists since 1990 and is an effective, safe and painless form of treatment for a wide variety of dental problems.
Dental lasers have the benefits that they might exclude the need for anesthesia, can be used to reduce bacteria in gum tissue and tooth cavities, can control bleeding during surgery and are precise instruments. Laser dentistry is used by laser-certified dentists to among others reduce pain of cold sores and canker, expose partially erupted wisdom teeth, treat infections in root canals, speed up tooth whitening, perform biopsies and remove inflamed gum tissue to aid in gum disease treatment.
