At Willowbrook Dental Clinic in Langley, we use many different types of dental technology to help make your dental treatment go as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Digital X-Rays store data in a digital format, which can be pulled up easily at the chair during your dental appointment.
Digital x-rays give a highly accurate picture of your whole mouth. They let us enlarge specific areas, and can help the dentist better understand your oral health needs. With digital x-rays, we can detect problems earlier, which helps prevent issues from getting worse.
The levels of radiation produced by digital x-rays is completely safe, and our team will take every precaution necessary to ensure you feel at ease during the process.
A CEREC restoration is a crown, veneer, inlay or onlay that is made by a CEREC machine, often in only one visit.
CEREC restorations have beautiful translucency and colour, as close as you can get to your natural teeth. They are also very durable. For instance, they stand up well to the daily grinding of food against your teeth. They are not affected by temperature, and the ceramic is so smooth that bacteria do not stand a chance!
Intra Oral Cameras
An intra oral camera is high-resolution camera that fits comfortably inside your mouth. These tiny cameras allow your dentist to obtain accurate and detailed images of the inside of your mouth.
The camera provides the dentist with clear, detailed images of the mouth. These can be saved directly to the patient's file with a click of a button.
It also allows our dental team to take accurate before and after pictures of dental restorations, and can also expose the details of a damaged tooth more accurately.
Dental lasers are used in a number of dental treatments, such as gum reshaping, cavity removal, teeth whitening, and to harden the bonding materials used in fillings. They are also used to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets.
Surgical dental lasers are significantly more precise than traditional dental treatments, allowing our dental team to conserve as much bone and tooth tissue as possible.
