Dr. Arash Azarbal, our experienced dentist in Pasadena, offers the latest in dental technology to give you an accurate diagnosis, comfortable dental treatment, and a healthy, beautiful smile.
Digital x-rays quickly produce high-quality images of your teeth while reducing your exposure to radiation. The clear images help Dr. Azarbal quickly provide you with an accurate diagnosis and treatment options. Digital x-rays assist in preventive dentistry, including the early detection of gum disease and early detection of cavities, which might otherwise lead to a tooth infection and a root canal treatment.
A handheld, intraoral camera glides over your teeth to produce three-dimensional images of them. These images are viewed on a monitor and assist in providing accurate diagnosis, treatment options, and customized restorations of your teeth that look completely natural. As you view the images, they will help you understand Dr. Azarbal’s explanation of your diagnosis and options for treatment.
We use a small, handheld laser to scan your teeth and detect even the smallest cavities in them. Many cavities develop inside the tooth and cause damage before they are visible at the surface of the tooth. DIAGNOdent reveals those problem areas and enables Dr. Azarbal to repair those areas of decay while they are small and inexpensive to fix. This also helps preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
CEREC® technology is a great advance that greatly increases patient convenience and comfort, besides producing high-tech restorations. This CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) allows us to make a customized porcelain crown, inlay, or onlay, while you wait—in less than an hour. An advanced computer is used to take a digital impression (no impression material is necessary). When the design process is complete, the information is transmitted to a computerized milling unit in the adjacent room. A beautiful all-porcelain crown is made and cemented—all in one appointment.
