The result is precise, predictable, and beautiful results – every time.
One Day, One Location Solutions
With our CEREC Single-Visit Restorations technology in-house and by partnering with a local full-service, state-of-the-art dental lab for faster service, we're able to deliver long-lasting and natural-looking restorations in a surprisingly short period, which, of course, saves you, the patient, time, and doctor visits.
As a testament to our all-in-one dental practice promise, we offer Raleigh-area residents same-day crowns service, which allows our patients the ease of having their crown done in only one appointment, saving them time and inconvenience.
CEREC® SINGLE-VISIT RESTORATIONS
With our CEREC technology, we can take a digital impression of your mouth, digitally design your restoration, mill your new ceramic crown and place the crown in one sitting, rather than having to send your physical impressions out to a lab to make your crown. Our tooth-colored restorations are metal-free, long-lasting and extremely durable. With our same-day crowns service, there is no temporary crown involved and you can leave our office the same day with your permanent crown and tooth.
CONE BEAM CT SCANNER
Cone Beam CT scanner is a an advanced technology that allows us to use x-rays to make 3 dimensional images. This is very important when evaluating patients for wisdom teeth surgery, implants, and root canals. Our Cone Beam CT scanner uses 10 times less radiation than a traditional CT scan and provides a wealth of important information.
This technology dramatically improves the process of taking images of your mouth for clinical use. In fact, there are 3 primary benefits when compared with traditional x-rays:
1. Instant availability for review and discussion
2. Higher level of detail
3. Up to 90% less radiation
While X-rays provide important information that we can’t get from any other source, they don’t show you everything that’s going on in your mouth. That’s why we have invested in an intraoral camera – a highly advanced piece of diagnostic technology that allows you to see what we see inside your mouth.
The intraoral camera is approximately the size and shape of a dental mirror. It has a built-in light source, and serves as a tiny video camera that allows us to zoom in on one tooth with magnification. The images can be displayed on a television or computer monitor, so you will be able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque accumulation, cavities next to fillings and excessive wear. We can also print or email an image for you to take home with you. These images are also very useful in gaining acceptance for treatment from insurance companies.
