3 Behind-The-Scenes Dental Advances For California

Crown lengthening Campbell

Campbell dental patients who have undergone a smile redesign are probably aware of the latest cosmetic dentistry procedures popular in the San Jose area. These include metal-free fillings, porcelain veneers, invisible braces, implant-anchored dentures, and inlays/onlays.

This post from Wes Yemoto DDS Esthetic and Holistic Dentistry focuses on some nifty advances that are used behind-the-scenes to benefit dentists and dental patients alike.

Digital imaging is not just for Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest. Many cutting-edge dental offices use digital X-Rays. Realtime digital images help us to more easily spot and treat oral problems including emerging cavities and bone recession. Digital X-Rays require far less radiation exposure and are easier to store and access.

Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used in myriad procedures including crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, root canals, teeth whitening, oral lesion removal, and treatment of dental decay. Laser procedures are easier on the patient and require shorter healing times.

CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used for many restorative procedures in Campbell including in-office inlays/onlays and same-day crowns. San Jose dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure. CAD/CAM is used in California dental laboratories to fabricate crowns, bridges, veneers, and ceramic braces.
