Fear of dental work is one of the most common anxieties in the world. Fortunately, there are effective methods to work around a patient’s fear, such as sedation dentistry. Learn more by checking out this informative video clip.
Sedation dentistry can take the anxiety and fear out of dental work. Now, you don’t have to put off much-needed dental treatment—many dentists provide sedation dentistry using oral and IV medications that will allow you to sleep peacefully while you undergo dental treatment.

Broken or damaged teeth can be irritating and unsightly, but you don’t have to get them removed to improve your smile! Cosmetic dentistry such as CEREC dental crowns can help. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, and it may be the best option for you. If you’re ready to undergo treatment to make your smile all it can be, you should consider this treatment for the following reasons:
CEREC dental crowns are put in very quickly and precisely. While regular dental crowns take around two dentist visits in order to complete the treatment, CEREC dental crowns take about two hours to install. Because the images taken of your teeth are done at the microscopic level, the plaster impressions are incredibly precise. The data input by your dentist is done with the same level of precision. This enables the crown to be milled as accurately as possible. The ceramic crowns are designed and applied in a single visit using the advanced CEREC system, saving you time and money.
CEREC dental crowns are natural-looking. CEREC dental crowns can be colored to blend in with the rest of your teeth, giving you a natural-looking, beautiful smile. CEREC dental crowns are also free from metallic substances. This is especially beneficial for patients with metal sensitivities.
CEREC dental crowns will not crack. The ceramic material used to create your crown expands and contracts, just as your natural teeth do. Because of this, there is no danger of cracking. Furthermore, they are neither too hard nor too soft. There is no undue wear, and you will not need to replace them time and again as you might with older crown technology.
Are you ready to see what CEREC dental crown technology can do for your smile? Contact the friendly professionals at the Redondo Beach Dental Group at (310) 542-6988 or online. We offer a wide range of dental services for you and your family, so give us a call today!

Dental technology is forever advancing, bringing dental professionals new and innovative ways to provide first-rate care, whether it is in the field of cosmetic dentistry or general dentistry. DIAGNOdent is one such advance, and it has changed the way cavities are detected and treated. To learn more about this fascinating technology, keep reading.
In the past, it could be extremely difficult to diagnose tooth decay in the pits and grooves on the biting surfaces of certain teeth, especially the back teeth. The traditional methods for detecting cavities involved looking for visual signs of decay on teeth, checking X-rays, or feeling for a soft area on the tooth with a dental explorer. Luckily, DIAGNOdent has changed all that.
DIAGNOdent utilizes an extremely precise laser scanning system to detect even the smallest areas of tooth decay, allowing dental professionals to detect and treat cavities before they become larger and more problematic. DIAGNOdent provides instant feedback on the health of the tooth by measuring the amount of laser fluorescence within the tooth. A pen-like probe glides over tooth surfaces and scans each tooth.
As each tooth is scanned, the amount of reflected laser light is recorded to produce a digital readout. A number scale and an alarm signals the operator when there are signs of hidden tooth decay. This new dental technology is completely safe and painless.
Due to a widespread use of fluoride, which hardens the outer enamel of teeth and makes cavities smaller and harder to find, diagnosing and treating cavities had become more difficult. Now DIAGNOdent provides a quick and effective way to detect even the smallest cavities, which will save you a lot of frustration and money.
Come for a regular checkup or a more substantial visit at Redondo Beach Dental Group. We utilize DIAGNOdent and also provide a wide array of dental procedures. For more information or to schedule an appointment, visit our website or give us a call today at (310) 542-6988.
