Using computer-aided design and manufacturing, the dentist creates a three-dimensional picture of the tooth and surrounding teeth. The software provides design options which the dentist can adjust to provide the right fit. The approved design is sent to a milling machine and the crown is created from ceramic material. And the software can make the crown look similar in color to the patient’s other teeth. For crowns on front teeth, some patients may prefer traditional crowns if they want the ceramic color to be an exact match
We have digital radiography and 3D scanning (Kodak 9000) which can aid in seeing otherwise undetectable pathology, as well as be being very useful in the proper planning of implant restorations. We can see the details of the underlying bone, nerves, and sinuses, all factors in proper surgical implant placement. One X-ray can take a full panoramic picture of all of your teeth!
Digital x-rays make diagnosing dental problems easier, faster, and safer than ever before. Digital x-rays provide instant results. In an addition digital x-rays reduce your exposure to potentially harmful radiation by almost 90% when compared to traditional film x-rays.
