Precision technologies have revolutionized the field of restorative dentistry, enabling dentists to provide patients with more accurate, comfortable and long-lasting dental restorations. With the help of state-of-the-art equipment and software, dentists can now create custom-fitted prostheses, crowns and bridges that look and feel like natural teeth.
Dr. Brad Tiner at Dentistry by Design uniquely marries a background in architecture design with extensive dental training and the latest technological advances to create absolutely stunning dental restorations. It takes all three factors to produce winning smiles across North Dallas and Richardson, Texas.
Ceramic Reconstruction (CEREC) combines sophisticated CAD/CAM technology and 3D printing to create completely customized crowns, bridges and other prostheses at our Richardson, TX, dental office. Restorative dentistry took a huge leap forward when dentists like Dr. Tiner became able to tailor custom crowns on-site for their patients.
Intraoral scanning is another precision technology that is transforming restorative dentistry. Instead of using messy impression materials to create molds of teeth, Dr. Tiner uses handheld scanners to capture detailed images of patients’ mouths. These images can be used to create digital models of patients’ teeth, which can be used to design and fabricate restorations. Intraoral scanning is faster, more accurate and more comfortable for patients than traditional impression techniques, making it a popular choice for many dentists.
Digital X-rays are a significant improvement over traditional film X-rays. With digital X-rays, Dr. Tiner can capture high-quality images of patients’ teeth, gums, and jawbones with much less radiation exposure. These images can be viewed on a computer screen, making it easier for dentists to identify problems and plan treatments. Digital X-rays can also be easily shared with other dental professionals, making it easier to collaborate on complex cases.
Laser dentistry is a precision technology that is used to treat a variety of dental conditions, including gum disease, tooth decay and teeth whitening. Lasers are incredibly precise, allowing Dr. Tiner to target specific areas of the mouth without damaging surrounding tissues. Laser treatment is often less invasive than traditional treatments, resulting in less pain, swelling and bleeding. Laser dentistry is also faster, allowing patients to spend less time in the dental chair.
Dr. Tiner uses The Wand, a computer-assisted injection tool, to comfortably administer injections when they are necessary. This allows more precise injections and improved delivery of the anesthetic. Most patients are amazed at what a difference The Wand makes.
Precision technologies have transformed restorative dentistry, providing dentists with the tools they need to create accurate, comfortable and long-lasting dental restorations. Dr. Tiner’s unique background, extensive training and full adaptation of advanced technologies provide patients with customized restorations that look and feel like natural teeth.
