The technology and techniques used in everyday dental care are constantly evolving. In cosmetic and restorative dentistry, the innovation of technology, techniques, and materials has opened a wealth of opportunities for patients looking to reach their dream of a beautiful, healthy smile.
New Technology Means More Precise Care
In the past, dental x-rays and other diagnostic tools gave dentists some insight into the features of a patient’s smiles. However, there were certain limitations to these technologies. Traditional x-rays didn’t show soft tissue damage, nerves, blood vessels, and other important elements of the dentition. Likewise, traditional modeling material was difficult to work with, making impression taking a long process.
When innovative new technologies are introduced into the treatment planning process, our Brooklyn cosmetic dentist is able to build comprehensive strategies that precisely address every aspect of your smile.
Stronger Materials are Made for Lasting Smiles
Recent years have seen a transformation in the types of materials being used to improve smiles. In place of metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, zirconia porcelain has taken the lead as a popularly, aesthetically driven option. In the case of dental implants, titanium implant fixtures encourage bone regeneration, leading to a stronger foundation for the future crown.
New Treatments offer Faster Options without Compromising Effectiveness
Updates in cosmetic dental technology have led to the development of new, more efficient treatment strategies. Solutions like Invisalign and other clear braces options give patients the freedom to achieve beautifully straight smiles without having to wear metal braces. Likewise, same-day technology now makes it possible for patients to treat dental emergencies with a high-quality crown in one day. By shaving time off what were once lengthy procedures, patients can enjoy lasting dental aesthetics and long-term, healthy smiles faster.
Raising Patient Awareness & Cosmetic Dentistry
One of the greatest advantages of innovations in dental technology and cosmetic care is the increased transparency and communication between patients and their oral health care providers. Before the use of in-office technologies like digital x-rays or intraoral cameras, patients were left in the dark on how prospective treatments would influence their oral and overall health.
Changes in dental technology as well as improvements in how accessible information is have allowed patients to play a bigger role in their oral health management. Thanks to these improvements, our Brooklyn dentist is able to project how patients’ smiles will look and the long-term health benefits they can expect. Ultimately, these innovations allow patients to make the final decision about their dental care.
