In-house Denture lab
We currently have two full time lab technicians with over 80 years of experience at our own in house lab. Not only can we reduce some of the overhead and time it takes to outsource to a different lab, we can also make sure to control quality. If the patient or Dr. Lee the perfectionist isn’t completely satisfied with the denture, we can fix it right when the patient is here rather than send it out and not get it back for a few days or weeks.
In-house crown & Bridge Lab
Our full time lab technician Peter has over 22 years of experience in ceramic work. His attention to detail and chair side service will have you feeling confident that you will leave this office with a beautiful custom made crown or veneer.
3D Imaging system for Implant Placement
We have one of the most up-to-date 3D imaging scan machine to provide us with a detailed view of the mouth and skull. The advantage that 3D imaging holds over regular dental x-rays is that bone structure, bone density, tissues, and nerves can be viewed clearly. This allows us to give you a full view of your mouth and actually show you what we’re going to do instead of telling you. This allows you to feel more comfortable with the treatment plan, and we feel more confident knowing we can give you the best treatment plan possible without adding additional fees later on. 3D scans can be completed in less than half a minute. This means that far less radiation enters the body than if a regular set of X-rays were taken. We can not only measure the density of the jawbone where the implant will be placed, but we can also pinpoint the most effective placement for implants, including the angle of best fit.
If you have questions or concerns about 3D imaging, or are interested in your free scan for future implant placement, please contact our office.
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems easier. Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
Dental x-rays are essential diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.
Our goal at the office is to provide excellent care for our patients. Having an intraoral camera at the office helps us do that. Oral cancer screenings where lesions are detected can now be photographed and shared with other dental/medical professionals. We have the ability to educate patients about their mouth by “showing” them what is actually going on without just telling them. We can take a photo, (no radiation) and show the patient their cracked tooth, rather than just telling them they need a crown. This helps us not only educate our patients, but they gain trust in us that we aren’t selling them something unnecessary.
E4d/ SAME day crown technology
What is E4D Cad Cam?
The E4D system is a state-of-the-art digital scanner, virtual design center, and a milling unit capable of fabricating esthetic and strong porcelain restorations. This system provides us with the capability of delivering same day porcelain crowns to you using the latest in technology and clinically proven materials. In contrast to conventional porcelain restorations, which often taken two full appointments to restore a single tooth, the E4D system enables us to scan your tooth, design the final restoration virtually, and mill your metal-free restoration with precision in just about an 2 hours. This eliminates the need to wear a temporary for weeks and come back for another appointment.
