Crown lengthening Prince William County

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

Today’s Prince William County dental post focuses on some nifty dentistry advances that are used behind-the-scenes to benefit Prince William County dentists and dental patients alike.

Digital imaging is not just for Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest, many cutting-edge Virginia dental offices use digital X-Rays. Realtime digital images help Alexandria dentists 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 Prince William County including in-office inlays/onlays and same-day crowns. Alexandria dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure. CAD/CAM is used in Virginia dental laboratories to fabricate crowns, bridges, veneers, and ceramic braces.
