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

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

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