3 Behind-The-Scenes Dental Advances For Virginia

Crown lengthening Alexandria

Alexandria dental patients who have undergone a smile redesign are probably aware of the latest cosmetic dental procedures popular in the Mt. Vernon area. These include metal-free fillings, porcelain veneers, invisible braces, implant-anchored dentures, and inlays/onlays.

This post from the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry focuses on some nifty advances that are used behind-the-scenes to benefit dentists and dental patients alike.

Digital imaging is not just for Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest. Many cutting-edge Virginia dental offices use digital X-Rays. Realtime digital images help us 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 Alexandria including in-office inlays/onlays and same-day crowns. Mt. Vernon dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure. CAD/CAM is used in Virginia dental laboratories to fabricate crowns, bridges, veneers, and ceramic braces.

The future of dentistry is here today. The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria VA provides family and cosmetic dentistry procedures, and sedation dentistry for those coping with dental anxiety. Schedule an appointment with us today.
