Along with the traditional lab generated crown, fixed bridges, onlays and inlays, we now offer CEREC crowns, onlays, and inlays. With a CEREC restoration you can have a permanent, all ceramic restoration in a single visit. This means less time out of your busy schedule and no temporary to deal with. CEREC allows us to restore your teeth to their natural beauty and function.
The materials used in a CEREC restoration are closely matched to the composition of a natural tooth and are chemically bonded into place. This allows us to save as much healthy tooth structure as possible. CEREC is just one of the new technologies that we offer to keep our patients healthy, comfortable and smiling.
Digital Radiography (X-Rays)
90% less Radiation Exposure, Better Diagnosis Computerized Digital Radiography (dental x-rays) is advanced dental technology. This is a system that allows us to take x-rays with a sensor using 90% less radiation exposure than conventional x-rays with no chemical processing. The digital images are then transferred to an office database where they are stored in the patient’s computer file. Doctors are able to use the computer to enlarge the image for better viewing, analysis and diagnosis. We also have digital panoramic technology.
We are excited about our newest acquisition of the Ivolclar Diode Laser. The Laser represents an innovation and more precise technology for specific soft tissue modification and preventive care. Just a few applications for use of the Laser:
The CAESY Education System allows us to show you information on dental procedures offered in our office. These videos will help you understand the procedures that are being recommended. You are able to view these videos right from your dental chair or at home with a personalized CD.
The use of our IntraOral Camera lets you see your oral health up close. By taking pictures of areas in your mouth, we can show you the areas of concern. This will enable us to help you make informed choices about your dental health.

The DIAGNOdent is an early caries (cavity) detection aid. More and more patients place value on healthy and attractive teeth. In order to maintain them, the earliest possible care is essential. DIAGNOdent aids in the detection of caries. Even very small lesions are detected at the earliest stage, enabling us to protect and preserve more of the tooth structure.
