Why accept anything less than exceptional when it comes to your smile? At Smile Lab in New York, NY, we understand that outstanding dental care is the perfect blend of skilled professionals, innovative techniques, and state-of-the-art technology. And guess what? We’ve got it all here in our practice.
Our unwavering commitment to delivering top-notch and convenient dental services is coupled with our dedication to cutting-edge dental technology. We don’t just keep up with the latest equipment; we integrate it seamlessly into our practice, guaranteeing you the finest that modern dentistry has to offer. Our team of knowledgeable experts harnesses this advanced technology to provide an experience that is efficient, effective, and surprisingly comfortable at every step of the way.
At Smile Lab, we leverage the power of intraoral scanners to deliver an exceptional dental experience. The scanner, a compact device resembling a small wand, is gently moved around your mouth, capturing thousands of frames per second. These frames are instantly stitched together to create a highly accurate, 3D digital model of your mouth.
This cutting-edge technology enables us to detect issues that might be missed in a traditional exam, such as tiny fractures or early-stage cavities. Moreover, it enhances patient comfort by eliminating the need for traditional dental impressions – no more uncomfortable trays filled with gooey material. Our patients can see their dental condition in real time on a screen, fostering a higher level of understanding and engagement in their personal oral health.
With these detailed images, we are able to design a precise treatment plan, custom-fit dental appliances, and monitor the effectiveness of treatments over time. Intraoral scanners are an integral part of how we strive to provide the most comprehensive, patient-centered dental care at Smile Lab.
3D scanning technology has revolutionized the field of dentistry by providing unprecedented insights into oral structures. Our 3D scanners capture incredibly detailed three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. This quick and comfortable evaluation allows us to assess your oral health comprehensively and accurately.
The high-resolution images generated by 3D scanners are a game-changer for diagnosis and treatment planning. They enable us to identify problems that may be hidden in 2D images, including issues in the roots of teeth, tiny cavities, and bone density irregularities. Beyond its diagnostic capabilities, 3D scanning supports the design and creation of custom dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, and implants, ensuring an optimal fit and function.
From diagnostics to treatment, 3D scanners are indispensable tools in our goal to deliver the highest quality dental care in a comfortable and efficient manner.
Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a specialized type of X-ray that produces three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. This technology goes beyond traditional X-rays, which only provide two-dimensional images, allowing us to visualize your oral structures from multiple angles.
This high-definition imaging supports accurate diagnosis, precise treatment planning, and successful outcomes. It is particularly beneficial when planning and performing complex treatments such as dental implant placement, root canal therapy, or orthodontic assessments. The precision of CBCT imaging allows us to avoid potential complications, ensuring your treatment is as effective and comfortable as possible.
In the hands of our experienced dental professionals, CBCT technology marks a significant advancement in our ability to deliver the highest standard of care. It is another example of how we at Smile Lab are using the latest technology to serve our patients in the best possible way.
Panoramic radiography, also known as a Panorex, is a two-dimensional dental imaging technique that captures a broad view of your entire mouth in one single image. This includes the teeth, upper and lower jaws, surrounding structures, and tissues. Unlike traditional intraoral X-rays, panoramic radiographs require a unique machine that rotates around your head, providing a complete 360-degree view.
As part of our commitment to comprehensive dental care, we at Smile Lab utilize this technology to gain a holistic understanding of your oral health. Panoramic radiographs help us detect problems that may not be visible during a regular dental examination. These could include bone abnormalities, impacted teeth, cysts, tumors, and infections.
Furthermore, this imaging technique is instrumental in planning treatments for dentures, braces, extractions, and implants. The panoramic radiograph, with its all-encompassing view, allows us to see the big picture — helping us devise the most effective and personalized treatment plans. In essence, panoramic radiographs are a vital part of our technologically advanced toolkit, enhancing our ability to provide you with exceptional dental care.
