Providing the highest level of oral health care means having the right tools for the job. Dentistry is a science that is always evolving and, at Benyammi Dental, we pride ourselves on using state-of-the-art technology, which allows us to better serve you, our patients.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser and, in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, and implants, as well as orthodontic treatments like Invisalign®.
Your appointment will begin with an examination of your tooth to confirm your candidacy for a tooth crown. Next, we will prepare your tooth for the digital impression by removing any damaged or decayed tissue. The digital impression of your tooth is captured and then submitted to our in-house milling machine. This machine will analyze the data from your tooth and instantly begin crafting your crown from a block of porcelain, chosen to match the color of your teeth.
Once your crown is ready, the fit of the crown has been verified, and any necessary adjustments have been made, the crown can then be bonded to your tooth. Traditionally, a temporary crown would be affixed to your tooth for two weeks while you wait for your crown to be fabricated off-site. However, with CEREC® same-day crowns, patients can leave our office not only with a more natural-looking smile, but also improved oral health and comfort.
There are two different types of laser dentistry: hard tissue and soft tissue. Hard tissue includes treatments such as cavity detection, contouring bone, dental fillings, and tooth sensitivity improvements. Soft tissue treatments include gum reshaping, gum surgery, and tissue removal..
