Crowns can take up to three visits and the use of a temporary to fully restore your tooth. With CEREC (CERamic REConstruction) technology this can be done in a single visit while you are in the chair! CEREC’s precision 3D technology allows us to create a customized crown that fits your teeth perfectly and is completely biocompatible with your own tooth structure. CEREC restorations are milled from a single block of high-quality Empress porcelain, one of the most aesthetic and durable porcelains, and a substance that is particularly compatible with the body. CEREC restorations are made under controlled conditions for the best construction and to get them as close to a natural tooth structure as possible.
Panoramic 3D x-rays
The Planmeca ProMax 3-D X-ray system produces a single picture of all your teeth and surrounding bones. Sometimes referred to as a single FMX, or full mouth X-ray, the Planmeca provides a three-dimensional, panoramic view of your mouth, enabling the dentist to see the full scope of your teeth and jaw in a single X-ray. As a bonus, digital x-rays have less radiation than traditional X-ray machines and there is no need for processing film of the image. Your X-rays can be seen by the dentist within seconds of taking them. We can then go over the results with you on our in-room computer screens.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Zoom! is the ideal teeth whitening process if you are in a hurry for results. In a little over an hour, Dr. Bischoff can whiten your teeth an average of 10 shades. The ZOOM! Whitening procedure is simple and painless. We begin with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. Next, we activate the Zoom! Whitening Gel with a specially designed light. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure, with your teeth looking good as new.
