Written by Dr. McKay on Sep 27, 2016

Our Toluca Lake dental team is always incorporating the newest technologies into our practices; we know that this enables us to provide our patients with the most effective and convenient dental treatments available today. Keep reading to learn more about the types of state-of-the-art treatments and technologies we employ…

CEREC technology

“CEREC” stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Basically, this technology allows our team to fit, create, perfect, and place a dental crown in just one dental appointment. Traditionally, dental crowns were crafted in off-site labs, so patients had to schedule multiple dental appointments in order to receive a crown. CEREC technology eliminates this inconvenience.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most innovative and effective replacement teeth available on the market. These individual replacement teeth sit where the patient’s natural teeth used to be—every dental implant has a titanium root that replaces the missing natural root. Dental implants are permanent and attractive replacement teeth.

Snap on Smile

This is a cosmetic solution that is truly one of a kind. Snap on Smile is actually an oral appliance that “snaps” into place over the patient’s natural smile. Snap on Smile can immediately make your smile look straighter, brighter, damage-free, and balanced.

Metal-Free Tooth-Colored Fillings

The composite fillings that we use are completely mercury-free, and natural looking. These fillings are custom-shaded to blend with the patient’s natural dental enamel shade. This is a much healthier and aesthetically preferable option compared to traditional amalgam fillings. Plus, composite fillings to do not require our dentist to shave away as much natural dental material as amalgam fillings do.
