If you don’t like the look of your smile, there’s no better solution than cosmetic dentistry. Today, more than ever, cosmetic dentistry services are more precise and minimally invasive thanks to advanced technology. You don’t have to wait weeks for a restoration, and you can get a more personalized smile upgrade with such tools as 3D imaging and same-day dental crowns.
You’ll no longer need to put off cosmetic dentistry treatments because you don’t have the time to undergo lengthy procedures or multiple dentist appointments. Advanced technology is your solution to a busy life. You can still get the smile of your dreams, but now more quickly and with more predictable results.
Here are 4 ways technology benefits your treatment:
Cone Bean CT Scanning
The cone beam CT imaging machine takes incredibly detailed and 3D images of your mouth. These precise images can be used to digitally plan cosmetic dentistry treatments for more accurate outcomes. CBCT imaging also produces much less radiation than traditional x-rays.
CEREC Dental Crowns
CEREC is a technology that allows a dentist to plan, design, and mill a restoration right in the office. This process generally takes only a few hours, so the patient won’t need to schedule a second appointment. A new dental crown can be fitted and cemented in place in a single visit to the dentist!
iTero® Digital Scanner
Digital scanners take high-quality images of the interior of the mouth, specifically of the teeth. These 3D images can be used to design new restorations or to plan orthodontic treatment with greater precision. Digital scanning reduces errors caused by traditional goop impressions and streamlines treatment.
Soft Tissue Dental Laser
Dental lasers make it possible to treat soft tissue concerns without surgery. These lasers are generally used to treat “gummy” smiles that many people find unattractive. The dentist uses laser technology to gently remove unwanted gum tissue, creating a more balanced and symmetrical smile.
