CEREC Same Day Crowns

CEREC Ridgway, CO

CEREC Ridgway, COSame day crowns using CEREC represent a more accurate and convenient innovation in dentistry. Teeth that are decayed, infected, or broken can be fit with a custom crown in one single visit. CEREC technology provides an optical impression of the decayed tooth. Next, a new design is created virtually using CAD software. A milling machine then manufactures the new restoration, and it is bonded to the tooth. As the ultimate advancement in digital dentistry, CEREC is predictable, safe, and effective.

3D Imaging (CBCT)

3D Imaging Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a special type of technology used to generate three dimensional (3D) images of dental structures, tissues within the mouth, nerve paths, and bone in the forehead, jaw, and craniofacial region in a single scan. River Peak Dental is proud to have this advanced technology in our dental practice in order to provide excellent pictures of the entire facial region to evaluate and accurately diagnosis diseases pertaining to the jaw, bony structures of the face, nasal cavity, sinuses, and throughout the entire mouth. The 3D imaging cone beam equipment rotates 360 degrees around the head, capturing multiple images from different angles that are put together to create a single 3D picture.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays have provided dentists with detailed pictures inside the mouth in order to accurately diagnosis dental issues such as cavities, dental decay, gum disease, and more. Often times, there are signs of oral diseases which are not visible to the naked eye, yet digital X-rays can capture them in an image so that dentists can see an issue before it has time to develop. At River Peak Dental we are proud to have this advanced technology in our practice so that we can help patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health with our dental care services – often times diverting issues in their tracks.

Intraoral Camera

At River Peak Dental we serve our patients with state-of- the-art dentistry. Our office is proud to bring the most modern dental services right here to the heart of the Uncompahgre Valley. By providing the most up-to- date advancements in dental technology, we are able to deliver the most precise diagnoses and provide accurate treatment. With an intraoral camera, we can detect dental cavities that are under the surface of the teeth, before they are allowed to cause severe damage to the teeth. An intraoral camera is a small piece of equipment that is inserted into mouth and passed above the teeth in order to detect even the smallest amounts of decay.
