Technology at the Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry
Also known as 3D intraoral scanning, digital impressions are used to make replicas of the mouth. Our dentists use a wand-like tool that is connected to a computer to create a virtual model of the mouth. Digital impressions do not require traditional mold material which can be messy and cumbersome. This technology also accurately scans your teeth so that restorations can be crafted from them.
This technology requires a scan of teeth that is used to digitally generate a 3D model of teeth. Clear aligners or night guards can also be created in a shorter amount of time with 3D printing for patients who need treatment. Resin is often used in 3D printing as it blends in with teeth for a more natural look.
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a type of x-ray machine that is used to create 3D images of the mouth. A CT scan can provide a more detailed picture of nerve pathways, soft tissues, and bone than traditional x-rays. CT scans are used in dental diagnosis and help dentists find problem areas in the mouth.
Same Day Restorations: in-office milling
Our dentists are able to design, create and place a high-quality ceramic dental crown or restoration using CAD/CAM technology. Digital impressions are used to ultimately produce a custom crown, inlay or onlay that is immediately placed. This is ideal for many patients needing a dental crown, a replacement crown, or other type of ceramic restoration.
