Digital Dentistry: Westborough Dental Associates
Dr. Trushar Patel has incorporated advanced digital technology into our Westborough dental office. Digital dentistry means that your treatment is more accurate, predictable, less invasive, and often with less downtime. Digital dentistry offers many benefits for the comfort and success of our patient’s dental care. We conduct modern digital impressions, provide modern same-day dental crowns, laser treatments, and more.
Same Day Dental Crowns
Dr. Patel uses CEREC, an in-office CAD/CAM technology to place a custom dental crown in a single visit. We design your dental crown using digital impressions, and mill it right in our office while you wait. This is a comfortable and efficient process. Dr. Patel will place the final crown, and you will leave our dental office with a complete smile.
Digital Dental Impressions
No more messy, gooey impression trays to get impressions of your teeth. We use a handheld device that quickly scans your mouth. It provides us with immediate digital images for use in evaluation and treatment planning. Digital impressions are easy, comfortable and provide a more accurate means of diagnosing dental problems. Not to mention makes it more efficient and accurate for our dentist to design custom restorations to match the needs of our patients.
We use laser dentistry to address a range of dental health needs in a less invasive and more accurate manner. Dr. Patel uses a soft tissue laser for treating the effects of gum disease, often preventing the need for oral surgery. A dental laser can treat infected gum tissue, and remove it without impacting surrounding healthy tissue. Laser dentistry produces fewer side effects and shorter down times.
