Digital dentistry, at its most basic, simply refers to dentistry that is enhanced or assisted by computer technology. At our office, we utilize many of these advanced technologies to improve patient safety, satisfaction, and overall experience. During your next routine visit, we would be happy to discuss the technology we continue to implement in our efforts to ensure optimal patient satisfaction.

Our Services

Digital dentistry services we provide include:

  • Digital Imaging. We use the CBCT 3D scanner to create remarkably detailed images of your teeth, nerve pathways, soft tissue, and bone. An alternative to x-rays, digital imaging produces only half the radiation and offers a much clearer and more detailed image of the entire oral cavity, enabling more efficacious diagnosis and treatment planning
  • Laser treatments. Lasers can be used as an alternative to metal instruments in gum contouring, for the treatment of gum disease, and the reshaping of soft tissue. Cauterizing as they cut, lasers reduce risks of bleeding and infection and may help speed the recovery process
  • Same day restorations. We use E4D Technologies CAD/CAM equipment to produce life-like dental crowns, bridges, and inlays/onlays. This digital dentistry equipment allows us to plan and mill restorations that look and feel like natural teeth during a single office visit. Sized, shaped, and shaded to fit perfectly into your smile, same day restorations can last for several years when properly cared for 

Technology is a part of our office, with appropriate services made available to allow for the optimal protection and perfection of each patients’ smile. While some, like digital imaging, may be used more frequently, technologically advanced treatments remain available as needed and can serve as both emergency services or for long-term smile perfection. How technology will be used for the benefit of your smile can best be determined during your next visit to our Aurora office.
