No more having to wait for your new crown! With the innovative CEREC method, you can have a quick, quality ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer placed in just a single visit. This smart technology uses a computer image of your tooth to create your new tooth out of a solid ceramic block so it can be bonded to your prepared tooth. That’s it! Chipped or discolored front teeth can also be repaired with this program. Your smile makes a lasting first impression; why not enhance it with CEREC?
- Early detection of decay
- Fast, painless examination
- Permits minimally invasive treatment to tooth
- No x-ray exposure
The Diagnodent is a simple, fast, and painless approach to early detection of tooth decay. A low intensity laser is able to detect decay in its early stage by measuring the laser light within the tooth structure. This early detection permits the use of minimally invasive treatments when restoring the tooth.
We at Pacific Northwest Smiles use a digital x-ray system that our Mill Creek, WA patients just love. Here are the benefits of digital x-rays:
- Safer, because the computer sensor is very sensitive, the system can use a much lower amount of radiation. In fact, it uses 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays.
- Better, because the sensor sees things conventional film might miss, and the image can be magnified 300x its normal size. Also, contrast can be adjusted to reveal things normal film might not see.
- Faster, because there is no development cycle, images are available within seconds of being taken!
- Smarter, since the system avoids using hazardous chemicals, it does not produce hazardous waste.
Want to see what Dr. Greenhalgh sees? With the intraoral camera, you can! This tiny digital camera fits comfortably in your mouth and allows Dr. Greenhalgh to show you an enlarged image of what is happening in your mouth, on a computer screen.
Do you suffer from migraines or tension headaches? The FDA-approved method of migraine prevention is the NTI system. A small plastic device is worn over your front teeth while you sleep. This device helps eliminate headaches, as it allows your jaw to relax and reduces the intense clenching that often occurs during sleep. This device will therefore allow you to be more productive at work the next day and to enjoy the things that you love doing in Mill Creek, WA.
