Cutting Edge Technology

Here at Smith Mountain Lake Dental we strive to have the latest technology in the business. That is why we are continuously upgrading our equipment.

Cerec®

CEREC® technology allows us to make porcelain inlay and onlay restorations right in the office. This makes the patient’s experience more convenient, as only one visit is required, with no temporaries or gooey impressions. The restoration also provides for a very cosmetically pleasing and strong tooth.

Digital X-Rays

Our state-of-the-art office features such advancements as Digital X-Rays, which provide high-quality, virtually instantaneous images of your teeth, gums and all parts of your mouth. This is a more efficient and cost-effective method with reduced radiation exposure when compared to traditional X-Rays, which require developing chemicals, films and physical storage capacity. This is just one way we strive to use modern technology to improve the care and service we provide to our patients.

Purline Waterline Filtration

We make sure our clients receive the best care possible. As part of that mission we have installed a Purline waterline 7 stage filtration, with UV light and silver ion technology. Knowing that our waterlines are clean and bacteria free gives us confidence that we are providing another level of protection to our patients.

Isolite

Isolite is a creature comfort that allows you to rest your jaw during dental procedures. It removes all water spray, saliva, and can even help with postnasal drip.

Drill Sounds

This is an area that everyone would love to eliminate. We have progressed as far as the technology of our day allows. ELECTRIC handpieces vs the well known HIGH SPEED handpieces now offer comparable, and in some cases, better benefits to the dentist. Our patients really like the reduction in sound and vibration. Both HIGH SPEED and ELECTRIC handpieces are utilized as per the best applications.

Practice Management

We utilize industry leaders to seek efficiencies in order to minimize costs to patients, while elevating service quality. Practice Management technologies and methods are utilized to optimize old fashioned customer service. Our number one office technology is interpersonal conversation. Our telephone is still the best way for you to obtain fast and effective service. We have digital telephones and train with management techniques provided through practice management consultants. We do also provide online access for your convenience.
