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 on the chair during your dental appointment.
Digital x-rays give an accurate picture of your whole mouth. They let us enlarge specific areas, and can help the dentist understand your oral health needs. With digital x-rays, we may detect problems earlier, which helps prevent issues from getting worse.
The levels of radiation produced by digital x-rays should be safe, and our team will try and 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 try to have translucency and colour as close as possible to your natural teeth. They should also be very durable. They should not be affected by temperature, and the ceramic is smooth to try and combat bacteria.
An intraoral camera is a high-resolution camera that fits inside your mouth. These cameras should allow your dentist to obtain accurate and detailed images of the inside of your mouth.
The camera should provide 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 should be more precise than traditional dental treatments, allowing our dental team to conserve as much bone and tooth tissue as possible.
