We are proud of our CEREC® machine, as this tool has revolutionized the patient experience of receiving crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers.
CEREC® is an in-office computer-aided design and manufacturing system that utilizes the unique software to create digital designs for custom restorations, based on scans of the patient’s mouth. The CEREC milling unit uses these scans to fabricate restorations from solid ceramic blocks, available in a variety of shades to match virtually any patient’s teeth. Within about one hour, we can produce an aesthetically pleasing and durable crown, inlay, onlay, or veneer, and secure it to the patient’s tooth.
Digital radiograph, better known as digital x-ray provides a better experience for patients. The radiation that a patient is subjected to from tradition x-rays is a concern for patients. Comparatively, our digital x-rays is approximately an 80% reduction that patients are subjected to.
Additionally, digital radiographs provide a higher quality image for our dentists to review. In other words, a digital x-ray may provide insight into an issue that has just started. Besides, the image is immediately available on the chairside monitor in your treatment room.
Our soft tissue laser allows us to perform gum contouring, crown lengthening, biopsies, and cold sore treatments quickly and precisely. Stitches are not required when laser gum surgery is done at our Sumter, SC dental office. Unlike conventional methods of treatment, dental lasers provide scar-free healing and germ reduction.
Often, our dentist can perform un-planned laser dental surgery. The laser technology fits right in with other technology that provides same-day treatments.
Finally, our popular air abrasion unit replaced the traditional dental drill. Most patients detest dental drills because they emit loud sounds, heat, and vibrations. In contrast, the air abrasion unit is quiet and gentle. Basically, it utilizing air, a fine abrasive substance, and water to prepare teeth for fillings.
In some cases, when patients receive air abrasion treatment no anesthetic is necessary. Typically, shallow cavities may not require anesthetic. Also, less of the healthy tissue is removed with air abrasion. Most beneficial, air abrasion may reduce the risk of your tooth cracking or chipping. As a result, you may extend the life span of your tooth.
