How does CEREC work?
Once your tooth is prepared for crown, the dentist will take digital impression with 3D Omnicam. The dentist will then design and finalise the restoration, which will be transmitted wirelessley to the CADCAM milling machine that will precisely make the restoration from porcelain or ceramic blocks. The whole process is monitored by the dentist to ensure quality and efficiency at all times.
When it comes to Philips Zoom, you’ll get the most dramatic results with WhiteSpeed. In 45 minutes your teeth could be up to 8 shades whiter, reversing stains from food and drinks, ageing, even discoloration from some types of medication.
You’ll leave the dentist chair with an instantly brighter, more confident smile.
If you choose Zoom WhiteSpeed, your treatment starts with your dentist checking your current shade, so you can both see the dramatic difference after your treatment is complete.
Once you’re ready, just sit back as your dentist will handles the next steps:
- Dentist will preps your mouth for teeth whitening and applies a layer of advanced whitening gel to your teeth.
- To speed up the whitening process, Dentist will shine WhiteSpeed blue LED lamp onto your teeth. This accelerates the whitening, plus the lamp’s variable settings ensure you’ll get a comfortable experience.
- This is repeated three times – and is completed in just 45 minutes!
- Once you’ve reached your desired shade, the dentist will apply post-treatment gel to help protect enamel and reduce sensitivity.
- Ergonomic treatment thanks to the motor-driven sliding track
- Patient-specific chair positions

VistaScan Mini View
The image plate scanner with a touchscreen for intraoral formats.
The new VistaScan Mini View image plate scanner enables the intuitive, efficient, and time-saving digitisation of image plates.
Digital X-rays are faster and more efficient than traditional radiographs in processing and viewing.
With this latest technology, your dentist can also store digital images on the computer and compare them with previous or future images to see how your dental health is being maintained.
As the modern sensors and phosphor plates are more sensitive to X-rays than the traditional film is, the radiation dose is significantly reduced.
Digital X-rays have many uses besides finding decay and cavities. They also help look at the bone below the teeth to determine if the bone level of support is good. Dentists can use the X-rays to check the placement of an implant, endodontics, position of wisdom teeth and orthodontic purposes.
Latest Sterilizer DAC Premium+
At Heritage Dental Group, as part of our strict infection control procedures, we use DAC PREMIUM+ which uses the same double-walled sterilization chambers (twin chamber technology) as hospital autoclaves. The chambers are preheated with steam, which is then used for sterilization. Our patients are protected by the best possible sterilization result in a reliable and legally compliant manner.
The twin chamber technology also offers a decisive advantage because the air is very quickly evacuated from the hollows of the instruments, sterilization packages and chamber. With autoclaves of the DAC PREMIUM class, you can quickly and easily step into the traceability of the instruments used on patients and thereby solidify your quality management.
Sirolase soft tissue laser
Due to the number of advantages, a dental laser is a standard feature of a modern dental practice.
If you ever need a soft tissue dental procedure, the traditional use of a scalpel or diathermy is gladly avoided with what is a bloodless, and less traumatic technique.
We are pleased to be able to have you recover quicker and of course with less (if any) discomfort.
This high-resolution, USB-based camera is equipped with autofocus and generates excellent intraoral images results in better patient treatment results.
Rotary endodontics employs electrically-powered instruments to perform the root canal treatment rather than traditional stainless-steel manual files. The electric hand tool is equipped with a tip constructed out of nickel titanium – a material that is five times more flexible than stainless steel.
Due to the flexibility and unique movement of the nickel-titanium instrument, it can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway. This makes for a quick and reliable procedure.
Advantages of Rotary Endodontics
- The nickel titanium cleans out the root canal much more smoothly and consistently.
- Rotary endodontic procedures are more reliable with less chance of complications.
- Rotary tools make the root canal procedure much faster.
- The electric tools are much quieter and smoother, without the loud grinding that accompanies manual files.
