The Latest Technology
One of the ways we invest in our patients is by investing in technology. Some improve our ability to see details and thus carry out our work more effectively. Others improve your comfort: providing you with a clear understanding of your dental health status, or simply helping you enjoy your visit here.
To improve your care we've invested in a new way of looking into your mouth—a procedure that's fast, and incredibly precise – digital x-rays. Digital x-rays use 50-90% less radiation than old-fashioned x-rays. What's even more amazing is that we get an image immediately that is large, clear, and accurate, right next to your chair…ready for discussion. Digital x-ray technology speeds and simplifies the diagnostic part of your treatment, and most importantly allows us to provide a much higher level of care.
Do you want to Zoom!™?
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective and fast - very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.
The Zoom! Whitening procedure
is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your
lips and gums. Then the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel is applied, which is
activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six
to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment
completes the procedure. You will be amazed with the results! In most cases,
your teeth will get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. With
proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will
sparkle for years.
If you have crowded or shifted
teeth, Invisalign may be for you. Invisalign is a way to straighten teeth
using a series of invisible or undetectable aligners. An impression of your
teeth is made. Using 3- D computer technology, Invisalign makes a series of
customized aligners, according to the doctor's instructions. Each set of
aligners is worn for about two weeks, gradually moving your teeth millimeter
by millimeter until the end result of straighter teeth is obtained.
Invisalign does not use metal wires and brackets, so it is comfortable.
Brushing and flossing are also easy because Invisalign is removable. Consult
Dr. Yi, an Invisalign-trained doctor, if you are interested in Invisalign.
It used to be that when your
dentist wanted to let you know what was going on inside your mouth, he or
she took a look around and then verbally described what they saw. Perhaps
you'd even get to look in a mirror, squinting and searching around, trying
to understand what he was talking about. But now, thanks to a wonderful new
technology called an intra-oral camera, you can relax in your chair while
simultaneously observing a real-time movie of the inside of your mouth,
magnified 35 times its normal size, on an adjacent computer monitor! Not
only does this make it simple to see and understand what Dr. Yi is telling
you, but it makes it simple for us to keep incredibly accurate records from
one visit to the next.
Window Based Software
At Lee Plaza Dental we are
using a state-of-the-art Windows-based practice management software program
called "Dentrix". With this system, our computers can take a hold of a huge
number of practice management details and streamline them for us. This means
that we can spend more time with you in person, and let the computer
efficiently and effectively handle appointment scheduling and electronic
insurance claim filing. In fact, this system allows us to keep up with the
personal details behind your records, so that we can serve you better—like
letting us keep a digitized snapshot of you in our software, or giving us a
way to attach electronic post-it notes to your appointments with special
instructions or reminders.
Our office is equipped with XM
satellite radio. You can also watch or listen to a personal XM satellite
radio, DVD or personal CD in each treatment room. We also have a selection
of movies you can watch in each treatment room.
