in-house Sirona dental lab
The VSP Dental, we have a team of full-time lab technicians working in a state-of-the-art, in-house lab to digitally design, scan, and mill our patient’s dental restorations quickly while ensuring ideal aesthetics and long-term success.
With an in-house lab, you will be able to save time and doctor visits. We can make adjustments to your restoration’s shades and fit while you are in the office. Additionally, because we don’t ship things out to another lab, you will be able to get your restoration quickly, with the results you want.
GUIDED IMPLANT SURGERY
Your full arch dental implant surgery will be fully guided. This means that we used our digital surgical plans to custom design a surgical guide that we fabricated with our 3D printer. This guide, when placed in your mouth, ensures the precise location, angle, and depth to place your dental implants. Your dental implants will be placed in areas of your jaw that have dense bone and positioned to optimize the fit of your final set of teeth as well as provide long-term durability and strength. Then, if the dental implants have achieved the desired primary stability, we’ll attach a temporary bridge of teeth hand-crafted right in our on-site dental lab.
SEE YOUR SMILE BEFORE TREATMENT BEGINS
Using powerful imaging software, our team is able to analyze the results to create the perfect placement plan for your implant and to show you – the patient – a photo-realistic 3D digitalization of your face and how your new smile will look before treatment.
3D CBCT (Cone Beam Scanner)
The team at VSP Dental uses a CBCT system – including a 3D cone beam scanner. 3D scans are quick and straightforward to perform. The 3D Cone Beam Scanner captures information not possible with a 2D x-ray and produces more precise, crystal-clear images. The result is a more effective diagnosis and treatment planning yielding more predictable, successful outcomes.
CEREC® Single-Visit Restorations
With our CEREC technology, we can take a digital impression of your mouth, digitally design your restoration, mill your new ceramic crown and place the crown in one sitting, rather than having to send your physical impressions out to a lab to make your crown. Our tooth-colored restorations are metal-free, long-lasting and extremely durable. With our same-day crowns service, there is no temporary crown involved and you can leave our office the same day with your permanent crown and tooth.
We've taken the next step in the progression of delivering crowns and straightening teeth in the quickest, most advanced way possible. Our new intraoral video scanner now eliminates the need to take impressions (molds) in most cases. This scanner literally takes a video scan of your mouth, providing highly accurate virtual impressions. The benefit is that we no longer need to put goopy stuff in our patients' mouths, often causing a gag reflex, to get these impressions. This scanner improves the patient experience while at the same time increasing the quality of the impressions we use for implants and crowns.
