Azalea Dental
A Great Dentist

Technology

Technology has brought a lot of amazing changes to different areas of our lives, and dentistry is no exception. At Azalea Dental, we believe in adopting technologies that make your dental treatments more efficient and more comfortable. Please take a look at some of the technology we're using to provide you with the most updated treatments available today.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

CEREC same-day crowns are a new technology that makes it easier and more convenient than ever to have a dental crown placed. Natural-looking CEREC crowns function in exactly the same way as traditional crowns. But the big difference is that using CEREC technology, we can create a finished crown during just one appointment at our Summerville dental office. 

We make your customized CEREC crowns here in our office while you wait. You don't have to put up with a temporary crown or the inconvenience of returning to our office for a second appointment. Your new CEREC crown will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and leave you with a healthier, beautiful smile.

Dental Microscope

When performing exams and procedures, it is important for us to be able to see as much detail as possible. At Azalea Dental, we use a special microscope to magnify our field up to 20x for the most precise view possible. This is similar to dental loupes, except we can get a much higher magnification. 

When we can see the area where we're working in greater detail, we can work more efficiently, meaning less time in the dental chair for you!

Digital X-Rays

Traditional film x-rays are an essential diagnostic tool that have been used in dentistry for decades. Today, however, we have the ability to use digital x-rays to take precise and detailed images of your teeth and other structures of your mouth. The digital sensor used to take the images may resemble traditional x-ray film, but it's actually linked to a computer.

Since your x-rays are digital, we can view them together as soon as they’re taken. They are available for discussion and, ultimately, better diagnostics and patient education. Understanding what’s involved allows you to make better treatment decisions, promoting a feeling of trust and confidence in your dental team.
