At Seven Star Dental, we pride ourselves on offering you the very latest dental technology. While other dental practices may not be as committed to keeping their tools regularly upgraded, we insist on investing in the latest and greatest technological advancements in the market in order to provide you with unparalleled comfort, care and convenience. Take a look at some of the technologies we use on a daily basis:
Our CEREC technology allows us to diagnose, create and place various restorations – including crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays/onlays – on the same day. For you, our valuable patient, this means only one trip to the dentist, only one use of local anesthetic, and no need to wear an uncomfortable, imperfect temporary restoration, which is worn for several weeks.
During a chairside treatment, Dr. Bustamante carries out all the steps, from digital impressions and computer-based construction of the restoration to the milling process, inside of her practice. She uses an Intraoral camera to take a photo of the preparation, the adjacent teeth, and the bite situation. Based on the images, the CEREC software creates a virtual model of your tooth situation. Dr. Bustamante uses this model to construct the tooth restoration on the screen and sends it wirelessly to the milling unit. Depending on the type of restoration, it is then milled out of a color-matched ceramic block in just 6 to 15 minutes using diamond-coated milling units. Dr. Bustamante can then add the finishing touches to the restoration by painting, polishing, and glazing it, before adhesively integrating it.
3D Panoramic & Digital X-Rays
A panoramic radiograph is a scan of the upper and lower jaw. It shows a two-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear. A 3D Panoramic relies on tomography i.e. images of specific radiographic planes are taken to make up the larger panoramic image
