Our Advanced Dental Technologies
In addition to our skill, these advances in dentistry are a big part of why patients in the Montreal, QC, area come to our family-friendly practice for exceptional dental care :
This advanced system allows us to create top-grade ceramic dental restorations in our office while patients relax in comfort. Whether you need a single ceramic crown or several veneers, we can often craft your restorations during one visit.
After precise laser scanning is used to take accurate digital impressions, your customized crown, inlay, onlay, or veneers will be fabricated by our milling unit, near-perfectly matching your natural teeth. There is no need to bite down on gooey, messy impression trays or wear a fragile temporary restoration for weeks.
Depending on your case, the milling process can take less than 30 minutes, saving you time and the need for a second appointment.
nSequence® Offsite Restoration Creation
In some cases, such as dentures, we might recommend that your dental restorations are fabricated offsite. Smile Montreal partners with a trusted lab that uses advanced nSequence technology, which is well known for creating beautifully customized, high-quality dental prosthetics.
Our practice features some of the most advanced digital dental scanning technology found in Canada, including i-CAT® technology. This cutting-edge device uses 3-D imaging to provide a complete view of your jawbone. This helps diagnose neuromuscular issues such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. i-CAT technology is also used to determine the optimal placement of dental implants in your jaw, so the best support for restorations can be achieved.
Our small, easy to maneuver, hand-held imaging cameras take incredibly high-quality pictures of your teeth and soft tissues, providing a precise look at hard-to-see places. Our dentists use intraoral cameras to detect early signs of dental issues such as tiny cracks, developing cavities, or oral cancer. This innovative device can allow them to create a personalized treatment plan to prevent serious, long-term damage to your health. Pictures taken with our intraoral cameras are instantly saved to your digital file for future reference.
No one likes the sounds, pressure, and smells associated with outdated dental drills. If removing decay or reshaping a tooth for a crown is a requirement of your procedure, our dentists use modern laser technology to quickly and precisely remove tissue. Laser dentistry can also be used for cosmetic gum contouring and treating gum disease. The laser destroys bacteria, minimizes bleeding, and reduces infection risks. Patients find laser dentistry much more comfortable than old-fashioned drills.
Modern Procedures for Oral Health Issues
We proudly perform the latest techniques in dentistry, including cutting-edge treatments for neuromuscular issues like TMJ disorder and gum recession. For example, a requirement to treat serious gum recession used to involve cutting away sections of gum tissue and grafting them where needed. Our dentists use the groundbreaking Chao Pinhole® technique, which involves repositioning healthy gum tissue without using scalpels or sutures.
