Toluca Lake Dentist Outlines The Innovative Technologies We Use In Our Office

Dental technology is continually evolving and advancing. Our Toluca Lake dentists make it a priority to stay on top of these advancements, so that we can provide our patients with the highest quality dental care available. In today’s article, we are reviewing some of the most exciting and effective modern treatments we utilize.

CEREC

CEREC technology has greatly improved the patient process for receiving customized restorations. Thanks to CEREC, our team is able to design, craft, and place a personalized dental crown in just one appointment. CEREC crowns are crafted from porcelain, and are shaped, shaded, and sized to suit the individual patient perfectly. Although these crowns are created quickly, they are high-quality, permanent restorations.

Snap-on-Smile

This innovative treatment offers patients a way to achieve a quick and complete smile transformation that is not permanent. The Snap-on-Smile is a custom-fit oral appliance that, once in place over the patient’s natural teeth, completely transforms the appearance of the patient’s smile. With this treatment, you can immediately benefit from a straight, white, and perfected smile—then just take out the appliance when you’re hanging out at home!

Dental Implants

Dental implant technology has revolutionized the way that our dental team treats tooth loss. Dental implants are permanent replacement teeth—every restoration has a titanium root that extends into the patient’s jawbone. The dental implant stays securely in place all of the time—it is not removable by the patient.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Rather than a cosmetic or restorative treatment, this is a relaxation solution that facilitates treatment of any kind. Oral conscious sedation puts patients at ease—all you have to do is take a small dentist-prescribed pill about an hour before treatment. Patients love this sedation option because even though you are never unconscious during treatment, you likely won’t remember any of the process once the effects of sedation wear off.

As you can see, our Toluca Lake dentists work hard to continually update our practice with high quality treatments and technologies. If you want to learn more, or schedule a personal consultation, just give us a call!
