Danimere Difference Specialist Care All patients are examined and treated personally by Dr. Chen, a trained prosthodontist and implant surgeon. His dual prosthetic and surgical background provides treatment results that you can trust. Prosthodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. It concentrates on the treatment of complex cases of esthetic and functional rehabilitation on natural dentition and implants, applying both the traditional prosthetic procedures and the most innovative treatment modalities. Specialist expertise fused with the most contemporary materials and methods result in beautiful work that last, and look and feel natural. Guided Implant Surgery We proudly offer guided implant surgeries, the wave of the future, to our patients for increased precision and comfort, and shorter procedure and healing time. A vast improvement over traditional free-hand surgeries, guided implant surgeries benefit from the combination of a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan and a computer generated surgical guide that greatly increases the precision of the implant placement surgery. This minimally invasive technique allows less post-operation discomfort, a faster healing time, and more ideally placed implants when compared to the traditional approach. Modern All Ceramic Restoration We utilize only the most state-of-the-art dental ceramic/porcelain material such as Noritake KATANA zirconia, Ivoclar e.max, and 3M Lava for our veneers, crowns and bridges to achieve the best esthetics, fit, and durability that modern dentistry has to offer. Our restorations are either precisely CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing) for the most exacting fit, or hand-crafted by some of the most masterful dental ceramists in the country for unparalleled esthetic results. Patient Safety Our office is committed to the well-being of all our patients and we take extra steps to protect them. One of the ways this is achieved is with the utilization of only the most modern digital x-ray technology to minimize patient radiation exposure. Studies have shown that this type of x-ray can decrease the amount of exposure by up to 80% when compared to traditional film x-ray. Our office takes it a step further by using only long x-ray collimator cones to decrease unwanted scatter to the head and neck region, further reducing the amount of radiation exposure. Our patients’ safety and comfort is our paramount concern, and we welcome you to experience the Danimere Difference!
