Exam and Preparation
First, Dr.Miski examines the tooth and determines the appropriate treatment.
It could be a simple filling, or a full crown, depending on how much healthy tooth structure is remaining and the clinical judgment of your Dentist. Next, he will prepare your tooth for the restoration, removing decayed and weakened tooth tissue. This preparation is just like he would do for many other restorative techniques.
Then, Dr.Miski takes an Optical Impression of the prepared tooth. Therefore, instead of filling a tray with impression “goop” that you must bite into and hold in your mouth until it hardens, Dr.Miski will take a digital picture of your teeth. This whole Optical Impression process only takes a minute or two.
