Toluca Lake Dentist Explains State-of-the-Art Technology In Our Office

Written by Dr. McKay on Sep 20, 2016

Our Toluca Lake dentists have found that by incorporating state-of-the-art technology into our dental practice, we are able to greatly improve our patients’ dental experiences. That is why we make it such a priority to continually update our technology and techniques.

In today’s short article we are discussing a few of the specific technologies that we utilize—we hope that this information enables you to better imagine what is possible with modern dental treatments.

One treatment that has really come a long way over the years is composite dental bonding. This treatment allows our dental team to apply resin to your natural tooth, and then cure it so that the resin becomes hard and resilient (and looks like real enamel). With bonding we are able to whiten your smile, correct dental damage, and even make your smile appear straighter and more balanced.

CEREC technology has also revolutionized the way that our dental team is able to treat dental damage right here in our office. CEREC allows our team to measure for, create, fit, and place your dental crown in just one appointment—we no longer need to wait for your restoration to be created in an off-site lab before it can be placed.

LUMINEERS allow you to totally transform a single tooth, or your entire smile, in just a few appointments. LUMINEERS are made out of a special kind of porcelain—Cerinate porcelain—which means that they are much thinner than traditional veneers, while still being strong. In order to place LUMINEERS, our team does not need to substantially shave down your natural tooth structure (as is necessary when placing veneers).
