Tryon Family Dentistry
A Great Dentist

Technology

One thing you will notice right away at Tryon Family Dentistry is the cutting-edge technology both of our locations are equipped with.

We stay ahead of the curve when it comes to new technology because we know it will benefit our patients. Learn more about the advanced technology you can expect to find at our Raleigh and Cary, NC dental practices.

Enamel Microabrasion

If you have white spots or discolored teeth from fluorosis or mottled tooth enamel, simply whitening your teeth may not give you the results you are looking for. Enamel microabrasion may be needed to give you that beautiful white smile you want.  

This process will remove superficial stains and discoloration in one visit without the need for anesthetic. When you follow with professional teeth whitening, this procedure may prevent the need for porcelain veneers or crowns.

3-D Cone Beam

This advanced imaging technology allows us to take a 3-D picture of your mouth, teeth, jaw joints, and bone. We use our CT scans for planning implant placement surgery, mapping your inner canals for root canal therapy, and checking your airways for issues associated with sleep apnea.

We often share our CT scans with general physicians for early diagnosis of other health concerns, as your oral health is linked to your overall health and well being.

CEREC Crowns

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an innovative technology that allows us to deliver many dental restorations in one appointment. Restorations such as a crown, veneer, or bridge, which used to take two to four weeks to complete, can now be done in a matter of hours.

CEREC utilizes 3-D imaging to scan a picture of your tooth that our doctors use to design your crown. The specifications are sent directly to our milling machine, which uses high quality porcelain to fabricate your final restoration.

This can all be completed in one or two hours, so you'll leave our office with a beautiful and highly functioning restoration you can rely on for many years.

Intraoral Camera

Pictures enhance our lives in so many ways, including making it easier for you to understand your dental treatment needs.

Our intraoral camera allows us to show you pictures of your teeth on our television screens as soon as we take them. If you can see full color pictures of your teeth and mouth, it's much easier for you to make educated decisions about your oral health.

Nitrous Oxide

Does going to the dentist make you feel anxious? If you answered yes, you're not alone. In fact, millions of Americans feel this way. At Tryon Family Dentistry, we understand how you feel, and we have options to help you feel relaxed and at ease during procedures at our office so you can receive the dental care you need.

Nitrous oxide is a gas that helps you feel calm during dental procedures, yet it leaves your system quickly when your treatment is over. This makes it safe for most procedures, and it's even safe for you to drive yourself home after your dental appointment.

Talk with Dr. Leo and Dr. Alex if you are interested in using nitrous oxide for your dental procedures.

Rotary Endodontics

No one wants to have a root canal, but if you find yourself in need of one, Tryon Family Dentistry makes it as comfortable as possible.

Rotary endodontic hand tools are electric and made of nickel titanium. This makes your procedure more efficient and comfortable since nickel titanium is more flexible than stainless steel. Electric tools make the procedure quieter, which is more relaxing and causes less stress to our patients.

VELscope

VELscope is a special light system that uses blue light to pinpoint and detect small changes or abnormalities in the soft tissue of your mouth. VELscope helps us detect oral cancer as early as possible, which in turn allows you a better chance for more successful treatment and recovery.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are an invaluable tool our doctors use to diagnose issues in their earliest stages. Digital images emit less radiation for our patients and they are available immediately so our doctors can make timely treatment recommendations and discuss your oral health with you during your visit.

Digital x-rays are also less harmful for the environment as there are no chemicals needed for developing them.
