Dental Impressions That Won’t Make You Gag Marietta, GA

Dental Impressions That Won’t Make You Gag

Digital scanning. Omnicam. Marietta, GA.

If you need a dental restoration, such as a crown, an impression must be taken of your teeth so that the most precise product can be fabricated for your smile. In the past, this impression included biting down on a tray of gooey dental cement. The process not only left room for error, but it was also messy and often left patients gagging. Fortunately, modern dental technology has changed the way you get an impression at the dentist.

At Gilreath Family Dental, we use advanced imaging and scanning tools to capture 3D pictures of your teeth without the need to use messy impressions. Our Omnicam digital scanner is a wand-like device that is held inside your mouth to work its magic while you sit back and relax. The “gag-free” comfort is just one of the many benefits of going to a dentist who uses digital impressions.

Benefits of Digital Impressions

When used correctly, the advanced technology of digital impressions can produce numerous advantages to both patient and dentist. As an office who offers CEREC same-day dental restorations, the use of digital impressions is a vital component that streamlines patient care and alleviates the need for multiple office visits.

Here are some leading benefits of digital dental impressions:

  • Improves productivity and efficiency in the dental office
  • High degree of accuracy/precision for better-fitting restorations
  • Maximum convenience – Less chair time (3-5 min to complete)
  • More pleasant – no bad taste or risk of gagging
  • Cleaner – no mess
  • Reduces room for error – allows chairside adjustments
  • Eco-friendly method of taking impressions
  • Fast turnaround time – digital scans can be sent immediately to labs or in-office printing systems

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we are proud to use cutting-edge technology to boost patient satisfaction. When it comes to dental impressions, you can forget about having to endure the “goop” of physical molds. To learn more about how our digital impression technology works, please call our office.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
