Technology

Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort and safety. Berry Hill Dentistry utilizes the latest technological advancements in dental equipment and techniques to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiographs (X-rays) are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for our dentists. Unlike traditional, film-based X-rays, digital X-rays often show more detail and can be more easily archived in our system for future reference and comparison. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit with less waiting and quicker treatment.

CEREC™

CEREC™ is a technological system that allows for the fabrication of all-ceramic tooth restorations in a single visit. Many restorations require several visits to the dentist, but with the CEREC™ system, a natural-looking restoration that has many of the properties of natural teeth, can be custom created just for you in less time, ensuring that you enjoy a more comfortable dental experience.

Cosmetic Imaging

Cosmetic imaging allows you to see how your appearance might change with the application of cosmetic dentistry. Berry Hill Dentistry uses this technology to assist you in making the best decision for your dental health and overall appearance. Seeing how your smile will improve helps you make the right investment for the future of your teeth.

DIAGNOdent

This is a relatively new dental technology that allows Dr. Cottone and Dr. Schmitz to see if there are any cavities in your teeth. The use of this small, portable laser unit allows the doctors to find these cavities in their infancy, well before the doctors could detect them on X-rays or visually. The addition of this technology in their practice helps you keep your teeth healthy and minimizes your need for future, extensive dental treatment.

Intraoral Camera

You can see exactly what your dentist sees! By using an intraoral camera, you will have a greater understanding of your oral health and of the treatments that the doctors are prescribing for you. Berry Hill Dentistry’s use of this technology goes a long way in educating our patients about their oral health, while lessening any feelings of anxiety that some patients may feel while visiting the dentist.

Digital Photography

Digital photography gives the dental team instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically and are more efficient compared to traditional photographs, which have less detail and which must be taken off-site for development.
