Do you know the importance of a dentist having a good relationship with their lab? Most patients don’t, but these relationships will dramatically impact the quality of your dental care – and the amount of time it takes to repair your smile. Many dentists have started to use CEREC in-office dental restoration systems that allow them to design, craft, and repair smiles with restorations during a single visit without the need for a lab. Many patients are concerned that this could damage the relationship their dentist has with the lab and make treatment plans fall to the end of the lab’s long to do list. This may not be the case. Keep reading to find out more about CEREC and how these systems affect your dentist’s relationship with the dental lab.

There are countless patients that wish to straighten their smile but need a professional’s help choosing the best option for them. Thankfully, your dentist in Petaluma is here to help you!
For the most part, every patient wants to straighten their teeth quickly and discreetly. If that’s you, Invisalign could be the best orthodontic treatment for your smile. But if you have a more complex case of crooked teeth, traditional braces could be better for you to receive the long lasting results that you truly desire.

To provide a high level of care, a dentist in Petaluma often embraces the latest technological advancements. However, less than 1% are currently using one form of technology that can enhance the level of care patients receive. With the use of surgical operating microscopes, you benefit from more efficient and precise dental services through accurate diagnosis and treatment procedures. The hyper-magnification allows the teeth to be viewed at 20X magnification so vision is no longer a limiting factor.

Fortunately, there is a solution in Bioclear Matrix, a cosmetic treatment that fine-tunes your teeth after braces. It’s available from your dentist in Petaluma. To learn more about the Bioclear Matrix, keep reading for this week’s update from your trusted dentist, Dr. Bob Koenitzer.
