Dental Technology at Cloverdale Crossing Dental Group
At Cloverdale Crossing Dental Group in Surrey, our dentists and team use various forms of dental technology to improve the quality of your dental treatment.
Digital X-Rays use a digital format to store data. You x-rays can then be easily pulled up at the chair during your dental appointments.
Digital x-rays provide an extremely accurate picture of your whole mouth. They allow us to enlarge specific areas, helping the dentist to better understand your oral health needs. Digital x-rays allow us to detect problems earlier, which can prevent developing issues from progressing.
All x-rays produce some radiation, but the levels in digital x-rays are completely safe. We will take every precaution to ensure you feel at ease during your x-ray.
A CEREC restoration is a inlay, onlay, crown, or veneer that is made by a CEREC machine. They have very natural translucency and colour, very similar to real teeth.
CEREC restorations are very durable. They stand up very well to the daily grinding of food against your teeth. They are not affected hot or cold temperatures, and the ceramic is so smooth that bacteria do not stand a chance!
Your entire CEREC restoration can be prepared and cemented during a single appointment. This means our patients don't have to be frozen twice, nor do they have to deal with temporary restorations.
Intra Oral Cameras
Intra oral camera are tiny, high-resolution cameras that fit easily inside the mouth. These little cameras allow dentists to obtain exceptionally accurate and detailed images of the inside of patients' mouths.
Before intra oral cameras, dentist would show their patients their teeth using a mirror. This often left an unclear picture of what was going on, at best.
The intra oral camera allows our dental team to take accurate before and after pictures of dental restorations, and also shows the details of a damaged tooth with greater accuracy.
Dental lasers are used in a variety of treatments, such as cavity removal, gum reshaping, teeth whitening, and for hardening the bonding materials used in fillings. They are also used to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets.
Because laser dentistry is more comfortable, it can eliminate the need for local anesthetic, which in turn will reduce the duration of your appointment.
And since local anesthetic is not required, we can often perform procedures that once required multiple appointments together during a single appointment.
We are committed to helping you and your family maintain good oral health.
