At Centres Dentaires St-Louis, we have a digital x-ray system that reduces your exposure to radiation by 80%, when compared to conventional x-rays.
This is a device that allows us to take an actual photo of a tooth. Thanks to the Intra-Oral camera, it is now possible for the dentist to better justify the patient’s suggested treatment to insurance companies.
Please note that CEPH, Panorex and CEREC technologies are available at our Clinic on Jean-Talon Street.
Normally the restoration of a heavily decayed tooth is done over several sessions and with the use of a crown. With CEREC AC technology, the whole treatment can be done in one session. Crowns are made on the spot in 1.5 hours. Plus, the high-end restoration is milled and inserted individually with the highest precision.
CEREC technology has a number of advantages:
• Respect of the integrity of the tooth
• No metal
• Biocompatible ceramic (same property as the actual enamel of your teeth)
• Much better than a traditional filling
• Lasting restoration over the long term
