Cerec

We are very pleased to offer you CEREC OmniCam™, the latest generation
of Cerec™, the world’s most advanced dental restoration system.  With it
we can manufacture lifelike porcelain crowns, inlays and fillings right in our
office.  Previously, this type of tooth reconstruction required at least two
appointments.  Now, entire procedures take only one office visit.  

Cerec OmniCam uses Computer Aided Design /Computer Manufacturing
(CAD /CAM) technology that allow us to obtain a full 360° perspective of
your mouth, take an accurate three dimensional picture of the damaged
tooth and then transfer it to a color computer screen.  No more
impressions!

Our ability to design your restoration is optimized by the realistic 3D CAD
program images.  The CAM program accurately and precisely mills the
restoration while we monitor the process.  Our final step is to bond your
finished restoration in place.  All in one visit…. Without temporaries!

The strong ceramic material is matched to your tooth color, translucent like
natural enamel, and biocompatible.  Because it is unaffected by hot and
cold, you will be able to enjoy hot and cold foods without sensitivity.

Worldwide over six million Cerec restorations have been placed: that’s one
every twenty seconds for nearly twenty years. Cerec 3D could transform
your smile!
Digital X-rays

Our patients’ health always comes first.  This is why we offer digital X-rays, a remarkable innovation in dental safety that allows dentists to reduce the amount of radiation
patients are exposed to with standard X-rays up to 90 percent.  To take digital X-rays, we place a small sensor into the mouth.  As soon as the picture is taken, the image if your
tooth appears on a nearby computer screen, allowing Dr. Hebert to view and discuss any problems with you immediately.


Precision Dentistry with Magnification

The use of high magnification assists Dr. Hebert in seeing things not visible by the naked eye.

Microscope assisted dentistry is just one of the premier instruments used in our office to create superior dentistry.


Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras produce live magnified images of your teeth and gums.

The intraoral camera is a tool used to diagnose problems a patient may be at risk of developing before they have a chance to take effect.   The
camera is placed in the patient’s mouth, where it captures images and sends them to a nearby computer screen.  The camera’s accompanying
software provides data that can help the dentist and patient decide on treatment options.



In Office Bleaching

Zoom is a highly successful method of whitening preformed by our dental team.  It can remove the toughest stains left by coffee, tea, tobacco and soft drinks, leaving the
patient with an exceptionally white smile.  Zoom does not harm the gums or teeth and it takes approximately 2 hours.  We begin the procedure by applying a hydrogen-peroxide
gel to the teeth and this gel is “activated” by light.  The results are noticeable immediately; patients leave the office with a gleaming white smile.
Odyssey® Diode Laser

We use a leading-edge laser system in our practice.  The Odyssey® Diode Laser is very patient- friendly.  It provides you with comfortable, preventive, minimally invasive
treatment options.  

The term “laser” stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation - a devise that produces and amplifies light.  The Odyssey Diode Laser’s wavelength has
been precisely calibrated for soft – tissue applications.  

The light can be focused into a tiny point to do very fine, exact work.  It is so precise in dental surgery that there isn't  much tissue swelling and there is no need for sutures.  It
is gentle on the soft gum tissue and can stop bleeding from even the tiniest blood vessel.  The heat from the laser seems to desensitize the area being worked on.

We have many uses for our soft tissue laser.  We remove diseased gum tissue to prevent gum disease, painlessly remove canker sores, and fever blisters and we can even
help cold-sensitive teeth.  The laser is also excellent for cosmetic dentistry such as re-contouring a “too gummy” smile.

The leading edge of technology of the Odyssey Diode Laser is just one more way that we’re making your visits more comfortable while increasing the level of care we
provide.
