New dental technolgies are continuously emerging in the marketplace. At Holohan Dental, we utilize proven technology and techniques by carefully and thoroughly evaluating new technologies and their benefits to our patients.
An intraoral camera is a very small camera, only a few millimeters wide, that allows us to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth, and gums in order to more accurately make a diagnosis. Details that may be missed using standard mirror examinations are clearly visible in the intraoral camera images. You and your doctor or hygienist can view these images on a chairside flat screen monitor to help enhance your understanding of your dental condition. We are also able to save your images for your permanent record and for printing or sharing with specialists, labs or your insurance company.
Our doctors and clinical team utilize special high-powered glasses (called magnifcation loupes) to enhance the quality and precision of your dental care. Magnification loupes help us to see hairline cracks and hidden decay often before these problems may be evident to the naked eye. They allow us to create more beautiful restorations, and improve the health and longevity of your restorations, by enhancing our diagnostic capability.
ZOOM!Â® In-Office Whitening
Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact many dentists consider whitening the safest (and least expensive) cosmetic dental procedure available. The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades* in a little over an hour .We will determine if you are a viable candidate for ZOOM! in-office whitening by doing a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment. A professional cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! whitening session.
