Dental Technology Houston
We Utilize the Latest Dental Technology at our Downtown Houston Practice for Your Benefit
Dental technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace. At our Downtown Houston practice, our team of dental professionals are committed to bringing you only the most effective, safe, and useful new dental techniques and practices. Below are just a few of the advances in dental technology that we have implemented at our practice. If you are interested in a particular service not mentioned here, please contact us today. We regularly evaluate new methods, materials, and dental technology at our Downtown Houston practice to make sure we provide our patients with the most advanced dental care possible.
X-rays are an important and useful tool in the diagnosis and treatment of many dental conditions. However, the old X-ray methods were time-consuming and exposed our patients and team members to unnecessary radiation. Today, our Downtown Dentists use digital imaging to capture your X-rays in a computer file that can be accessed immediately, stored indefinitely, easily shared with your other medical providers, and manipulated on-screen to better evaluate your dental condition.
Our new CEREC milling unit allows us to prepare and permanently place the crown all in ONE appointment. No more having an impression taken and having to wear a temporary crown for 2 weeks while the lab fabricates your crown. EVERYTHING is taken care in one appointment. Contact us today to learn more!
The CEREC® system allows us to craft metal free dental restorations for our patients on-site. The benefits of such a system are many: the treatment process is expedited because the dental crowns can be developed during the patient’s visit; the restoration can be highly customized for the patient’s individual needs, and; the all-ceramic restoration is the same color as the patient’s teeth and so blends in.
Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
Perhaps the most popular dental technology at our Downtown Houston practice is the Zoom!® teeth whitening system. Designed to be fast, convenient and effective, the Zoom!® treatment allows us to whiten our patients’ teeth by up to eight shades in just 45 minutes. Utilizing a proprietary whitening gel and special lighting technology, the Zoom!® treatment is pain free and the results are long lasting.
For patients with alignment problems, Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment. Customized and replaceable molds that slowly align your teeth into position, Invisalign® has proven very popular with our patients because of its effectiveness and user-friendly nature. The plastic aligners are placed over the teeth, and are nearly imperceptible, which means you can smile with confidence. And they can be removed to eat or clean your teeth, so they work with your lifestyle as well.
