Dental Technology We Offer
Our dentists use 3Shape to take . This means that we no longer have to press trays of pink putty against the roof of your mouth to make a physical mold. Instead, we use a wireless 3D scanner to take precise digital impressions. Taking digital dental impressions means no goop, mess, or discomfort for the patient.
Considering Invisalign braces? Our dentists use iTero to help you visualize what your smile will look like after Invisalign. iTero gives you peace of mind that the end result will be worth wearing clear aligners for a few months. Patients are often able to achieve their dream smiles in as little as 12 to 18 months!
Using the iTero scanner also ensures that your aligners fit well. In fact, dentists that use iTero are able to reduce the likelihood of ill-fitting aligners by up to 7 times. This means fewer repeat visits and less discomfort during Invisalign treatment.
Hygiene Air Polisher
You need a teeth cleaning every 6 months to remove plaque and tartar. Yet, what if we told you there was a way to streamline your appointment? Depending on your case, we may be able to use a hygiene air polisher to remove superficial tooth stains. Our hygienists would use the air polisher before hand scaling. That way, we’re able to reduce the amount of time you spend in the dentist’s chair.
