What is Dental Technology?

High-End Dentistry in Canandaigua, Henrietta, Naples, Palmyra, and Victor, NY

When you visit the dentist, you may notice them using certain technology. These dental technologies can include anything from X-ray machines to CEREC® machines. All of the dental technology we use in-office helps streamline the process of visiting the dentist.

Types of Dental Technology

Digital X-rays

If you’ve ever visited a dentist before, you most likely have gotten x-rays taken. Digital X-rays are a standard practice at most dental offices. These digital X-rays save time and are safe for any patient.

Cone Beam Computed Technology (CBCT)

CBCT scanning allows our team to create images of your teeth, face, and neck with just one scan. These images are high-quality and help us gather detailed information to best diagnose every patient. The CBCT machine rotates once around your head while you stand or sit. It is a quick, simple, and painless process!


CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. CEREC® creates a state-of-the-art way of reconstructing tooth restorations. For patients who are in need of crowns, CEREC® makes it possible to walk out of the office with a new tooth in just one visit! This dental technology has revolutionized ceramic restorations so there is no waiting period preparing the restoration and receiving the final product.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral cameras give our team a detailed view of your mouth in pictures and videos. This dental technology is useful for putting specific problem areas on the screen so we can see them in greater detail.
