CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
With our CEREC machine, our office is equipped to provide dental restorations within one dental appointment. Especially helpful to patients in need of a dental crown.
Our CEREC machine designs and creates the perfect crown for you while we prepare your tooth for the crown. This means that you do not have to wait several weeks to receive your permanent tooth restoration. Instead, you can visit our office with a broken tooth and have it repaired and restored within one appointment.
Our office is proud to offer Invisalign, a clear aligners alternative to traditional braces. Treating mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, Invisalign aligners slowly apply pressure to your dental structures and encourage them to shift into a straighter position.
Patients love Invisalign because it allows them to avoid the dietary restrictions and lifestyle alterations that are often required when seeking traditional orthodontic treatment via metal braces. They are also discrete and removable, allowing patients to clean their teeth normally.
The Wand Computerized Anesthetic System
Many dental procedures require the use of an anesthetic. Traditionally, an anesthetic is delivered using a hypodermic needle and syringe. At TotallySmiles, we offer an alternative to the traditional anesthetic process.
The Wand Computerized Anesthetic System is used to deliver local anesthesia to the area we will be operating on during your dental procedure. It carefully guides dentists and dental assistants as they perform dental injections, eliminating patient pain or discomfort and allowing us to provide pain-free dental procedures.
iTero Digital Scanner
If you’ve ever had traditional dental impressions taken of your teeth, you know how uncomfortable those can be. Traditionally, impressions are taken using a putty-like material that must be held in your mouth for several minutes in order to allow the putty to conform to the shape of your teeth.
Our office provides an alternative to this method, the iTero scanner. The iTero scanner is a compact, hand-held wand that uses digital images to create impressions of your teeth. This is much less invasive and more comfortable for patients than traditional impression methods.
