Unless you have been hiding under a rock, we can all agree:
Digital technology is changing the world.
Can you imagine going back to a world without cell phones, internet, or television?
In terms of dentistry:
Can you imagine going back to goopy impressions or having treatment take months instead of hours?
No, thank you!
Every day, it seems there is a new device or app released that can solve the world’s problems.
You begin to become desensitized to the latest technologies because it can be hard to decipher what is genuinely beneficial and life-changing versus a luxury.
At Denti Belli Dentistry, we believe digital dentistry solutions are life-changing. To prove it, we are going to explain three major reasons why digital dentistry benefits you.
How can digital dentistry save time?
Here’s one thing technology cannot do:
Reverse time. At least, not yet.
However, it can save you time!
One of the greatest time-saving digital dentistry solutions is the CEREC milling machine.
Gone are the days where you have to wait weeks, maybe even months, to receive a tooth restoration.
This dental technology creates a brand new tooth in less than two hours, and the entire treatment is done under one roof at Denti Belli Dentistry!
You won’t have to wear temporaries while waiting for your final restoration. You won’t have to drive to multiple offices. You won’t have to go another day with a damaged tooth.
With digital radiography, we can detect early signs of dental problems. This allows us to take preventative actions, typically in one appointment, rather than reactive that could span over multiple appointments.
If you’re still hung up on the mention of goopy impressions, don’t worry.
With our intraoral scanner, we can take a digital 3D impression of your teeth in a matter of seconds! This will reduce your time in the chair and the time you spend dreading the thought of goopy impressions.
Are digital dentistry solutions more expensive?
If anyone is familiar with cell phones, specifically iPhones, you are well aware that prices are steeply increasing with the latest technology.
It’s safe to assume dental technology is more expensive, right?
Well, that is not necessarily the case. In fact, digital dentistry can save you money!
To begin, let’s think about all the time you save with digital dentistry.
Essentially, more time in the chair equals more money out of your pocket. By significantly reducing the number of times you are in the chair, from impressions to a new crown, you save money.
Another factor is by preventing dental problems, you won’t have to deal with the costly outcome of them later.
With 3D cone beam technology, you only need one scan to produce a variety of bone and soft tissue images. This eliminates the costly need for multiple x-rays, reduces your exposure to radiation, and saves you time in the chair.
Best of all:
At Denti Belli Dentistry, our CEREC restorations are priced the same as traditional restorations.
Does digital dentistry hurt?
While it may not seem like it, dentists don’t want to hurt you or cause you pain.
However, we understand it can be hard to believe if you’ve suffered years from dental anxiety.
At Denti Belli Dentistry, our promise to you is we’ll always provide comfortable and expert care. If there is a way to improve your dental experience and reduce pain, we are on it.
Not only does dental technology save you time and money, but it is also less painful than traditional methods or equipment.
Cavities are no fun and getting them filled is no exception. With SonicFill™, we can complete a filling faster while it comfortably maneuvers in and out of your mouth. Plus, the filling contains zero harmful materials and is 100 percent safe.
Have you ever tried whitening your teeth yourself only to experience sensitivity rather than be happy with the results?
Over-the-counter teeth whitening is not designed with your tooth sensitivity in mind. With Zoom! laser whitening, we can brighten your teeth up to eight shades and ensure your comfort.
Bonus: Sessions are only 15 minutes long, and you can achieve maximum results in one hour!
If you’ve ever had goopy impressions, then you know the discomfort it causes. However, you could eliminate that discomfort with a simple Intraoral scan. This digital 3D scan is also used to create restorations, Invisalign® aligners, and retainers with more accurate, better-fitting results.
Why you can’t live without digital dentistry
We wouldn’t invest in what we believe to be the best dental technologies if you could not see and feel the benefits of it.
At Denti Belli Dentistry, we strive for excellence, and that means putting YOU first.
You deserve the best possible care dentistry has to offer. That is why digital dentistry is a must in dentistry, not a luxury.
