Technology at your Service
You can always count on Dr. Michael Min, DDS, and his Vista Dental Care team in Ontario, CA to have the most cutting-edge, high-tech dental equipment on the market. Being on the leading edge of innovative technology gives us the ability to provide you with the best possible services and the most beautiful results.
Our advanced technology and special “single-visit dentistry” services provide faster and easier ways to take care of your general and cosmetic dentistry needs.
Take a closer look at our state-of-the-art technology:
The world’s most popular dental system for creating “same-day crowns,” the CEREC system helps Dr. Min perform a 3-D scan of your tooth, then plan and design the porcelain crown, create it onsite in a CEREC milling machine, and set the crown on your tooth (restoration) in one single visit. No need for messy impressions; no need to waste time sending it to an outside lab, no multiple dental visits. Together Dr. Min and his dental care team create a beautiful, permanent porcelain crown in just two hours. That’s what we call same day crowns.
Sirona Orthophos SL 3D Imaging System
Using the latest cone beam CT scan technology, the Sirona Orthophos SL 3D Imaging System delivers sharp three-dimensional detailed digital images of the jaw using much less radiation than conventional cone beams. A 3D image allows us to see much more than what traditional x-rays reveal, allowing for a more accurate diagnosis, which can be overlooked with traditional x-rays. Cone Beams have also become the standard of care for planning implant surgery. Dr. Min uses these high-definition images in dental implant surgery to accurately position the implant in the jaw, while safely navigating nerves and other structures that may lead to a compromised result. The outcome: a beautiful, natural-looking tooth implant that fits and aligns perfecting with your natural teeth.
Laser Technology | Soft-Tissue Laser
For patients with an uneven gum line or one that has been ravaged by gum disease, a soft-tissue laser can contour your gums into a more aesthetically pleasing gum line and teeth. Lasers lessen the pain associated with various gum treatments with these added benefits: little to no bleeding, better sterilization, remarkable precision, and faster healing. It’s not surprising that lasers have long been a welcome addition to our high-tech dental services.
DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detector by KaVo
The DIAGNOdent laser provides the highest degree of accuracy in the early detection of tooth decay, including cavities that are just beginning to develop. The non-invasive, hand-held laser pinpoints decay so that more of the healthy tooth structure can be protected.
Complementary Dental Technology | Intra-oral Camera
With this hand-held dental camera, real-time views of your mouth are displayed on a screen, so that you and Dr. Min are simultaneously looking at the same images. This easy-view technology enables you to be more of an active partner in your dental treatment so that you see what we see. It’s an especially important benefit when Dr. Min needs to discuss additional treatments or to explain treatment options so that you can make informed decisions.
