In the interest of better serving Riverwalk Dental’s patients, Dr. Beninato and Dr. Patsi recently made the investment into a state of the art milling unit.
Whether a patient desires same-day crowns, inlays, onlays or veneers, Riverwalk Dental can provide exactly what is needed, when it is needed.
“Our patients today do not have the time for multiple office visits in order to address the cosmetic issues and pain associated with a damaged tooth,” stated Dr. Joseph Beninato when discussing the new equipment.
“We want our patients to be comfortable with their smile quickly, and our new milling machine truly accomplishes this goal.”
Although convenience for patients was high on the priority list, none of the precision and quality is sacrificed by bringing this technology in-house. The Planmeca FIT intraoral scanner technology is one of the newest advancements in restorative dentistry. Dr. Patsi states: “The restorations that it produces, whether an inlay/onlay or a crown have the best marginal fit that a dentist could ever want or dream of. As a dentist of twenty years, I can say with confidence that the precision fit and strength of this restoration is superior to the vast majority of the traditional laboratory fabricated restorations.”
Should Patients Fear Getting a New Crown?
The process of utilizing the new milling machine to restore teeth is simple and effective. Once the preparation of the tooth is complete, a digital impression is taken with an intraoral scanner. No more messy impressions. The scan is then processed in the computer software and the restoration is designed by the doctors. It is then sent electronically to be milled.
While the patient waits, Riverwalk Dental’s new milling Planmeca machine goes to work making the perfect restoration for the tooth. In only a couple hours, not days or weeks, the patient leaves excited to show off his or her new smile.
“Our goal is to have our patients leave the office with a smile that looks and feels natural and a restoration that will last them a long time!” state both Drs. Patsi and Beninato.
