On-Site Dental Lab
Working with a trusted dental laboratory to have custom-made, high-quality dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and other restorative solutions created is a big part of a dental practice’s workload. Instead of that lab being miles and miles away from the practice in question, wouldn’t it be much easier if their operation was in the exact same building? At Dr. Valentine’s office, that’s just what you’ll find. With our chosen dental laboratory so near, we can ensure faster turnaround times and alterations for patients in need.
3D Cone Beam Imaging
X-rays are an essential part of quality dental care because they allow us to see below the surface of your smile and treat any problems that may exist out of sight of the naked eye. With the state-of-the-art CT scanner, Dr. Valentine can go a big step further. With this technology, our X-rays are three-dimensional and capable of capturing even the littlest details related to a patient’s oral health, such as the location of their sinuses, their facial nerves, and more. This information is invaluable for complex procedures like dental implant placement.
Instead of having to sit still and bear it while our team fills your mouth with gag-worthy impression materials, Dr. Valentine is proud to now offer a much faster, more comfortable, and more accurate alternative: digital impressions with the help of CEREC® technology. Now, a comprehensive scan of the affected tooth or teeth in need of restoration can be created with just a few fast scans of the mouth.
When it comes to caring for a patient’s delicate gum tissue, Dr. Valentine can perform soft tissue contouring. Soft tissue contouring sterilizes the treated area and encourages the regeneration of new, healthy tissue. Patients will also find that common postoperative symptoms, like bleeding and swelling, are highly minimized with this technique, and recovery is faster than ever.
