Clearwater residents who have undergone a smile redesign are probably aware of the latest cosmetic dental procedures popular in the Trinity area. These include metal-free fillings, porcelain veneers, invisible braces, implant-anchored dentures, and inlays/onlays.
Today’s Clearwater dental post focuses on some nifty dentistry advances that are used behind-the-scenes to benefit Clearwater dentists and dental patients alike.
Digital imaging is not just for Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest, many cutting-edge Florida dental offices use digital X-Rays. Realtime digital images help Trinity dentists more easily spot and treat oral problems including emerging cavities and bone recession. Digital X-Rays require far less radiation exposure and are easier to store and access.
Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used in myriad procedures including crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, root canals, teeth whitening, oral lesion removal, and treatment of dental decay. Laser procedures are easier on the patient and require shorter healing times.
CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used for many restorative procedures in Clearwater including in-office inlays/onlays and same-day crowns. Trinity dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure. CAD/CAM is used in Florida dental laboratories to fabricate crowns, bridges, veneers, and ceramic braces.
