Top 10 Modern Dental Services Offer by Vita Dental
Gone are the days when the traditional metallic braces were the only viable option in straightening teeth. Although they were and still are very effective, the braces were too conspicuous and could easily be seen. With invisalign though, this has changed. Invisalign are clear, practically invisible braces that can gently straighten your teeth. They provide an effective and comfortable way to straighten your smile without the inconvenience of wearing heavy, metal braces.
We have also adopted the more effective and reliable laser dentistry. We use Lasers to improve efficiency and eliminate discomfort in a number dental procedures, including filling cavities, reducing tooth sensitivity, getting rid of tumours, and whitening of teeth.
Implants might not sound like an invention per se but they are really revolutionizing the field of dentistry. They are helping replace missing teeth and giving more people the smiles they desire. We offer high quality dental implants at affordable rates and you should look forward to getting them from us.
VEL scope illuminating light
Thanks to the orientation of the mouth, diagnosing dental problems was very difficult because the mouth is a bit dark. This has however changed today thanks to VELscope illumination. VELscope is a special type of light that a dentist will shine in a patient’s mouth to detect any abnormalities. This new form of technology is effectively used to detect early forms of cancer or disease during an oral cancer screening.
We have also upgraded from the traditional x-rays and are using the more efficient digital X-rays for all our dental work. Digital X-rays are faster and contain less radiation than traditional X-rays. The quality of the resulting image is very high and it can be zoomed to pick out the finest of details. This makes diagnosis more accurate and yields more reliable results.
Composite Resins are used in many restorations such as bonding and veneers. They offer the advantage over older technologies such as gold or amalgam because they are better refined to replicate tooth colors and tooth function. Additionally they are easier to apply and more durable than ever before. Dental professionals can apply the material directly to the tooth and mold it to the shape and color that resembles natural teeth.
This is a new device that is changing the way we are detecting and diagnosing dental cavities. DIAGNOdent is a new, state of the art device that dentists use to detect cavities that are hiding in places regular x-rays can’t find. We use this device to pick up the cavities before they can fully develop and administer the relevant medication.
The intraoral camera is a tool that dentists use to gain precise and well-defined pictures of hard to see places within a patient’s mouth. The camera also allows dentist to show these images to patients while assessing and educating the patient’s needs. This new form of technology allows dentist to conduct a thorough check-up of your mouth and better assess their patient’s oral care needs.
You no longer have to worry about pain when we are working on making your teeth better. This is because we now have sedation dentistry and we will numb the area we are working on before we begin the procedures.
The other new advancement in dentistry that we pride ourselves in here at Vita dental is the use of dental veneers to enhance the look of teeth. The tiny pieces are easy to work with and will completely change the appearance of the patient’s teeth. You don’t have to struggle with stained teeth anymore with our high quality veneers.
