Intra-oral imaging provides our patients and our team with a detailed view of your mouth in pictures and videos. Words come to life so you can see what we see.
Viewing specific problem areas on a computer screen allows us to see issues with a clarity and detail not possible using a traditional mouth mirror. Specialized hand-held wands can quickly capture details on your teeth and gums. Even small cracks that often lead to broken teeth appear in vivid detail with the click of a button. By showing you what we see in greater detail, we can explain the need for treatment more clearly.
As an added benefit, dental insurance claims are frequently expedited with visual proof of a capture image in our records.
All About Smiles Family Dentistry is pleased to offer the most advanced dental restorative system available today. CEREC streamlines procedures requiring messy impressions or temporary crowns or bridges that require a second visit for placement.
In a single visit, 3D digital images of your teeth allow Dr. Frances Golly and her team to design a customized solution using innovative software. A crafted porcelain restoration is created from the images through a special milling process. Once bonded into place minutes later, your new tooth is ready to go!
What does CEREC Mean?
The technology is within arm’s reach of the dental chair and works without you leaving your comfortable position.

We are thrilled to offer the most advanced imaging process in dentistry: ConeBeam CT scanning, or 3D imaging. This technology allows us to create unlimited views of your teeth, face, and neck with just one scan. This allows us to obtain high-quality, detailed information to diagnose and plan your treatment needs. We can evaluate your teeth and facial structures from literally every angle, in 3D, and in color! Routine x-rays produce only a single flat image with limited information.
The ConeBeam CT imaging system is a digital x-ray scanner that rotates once around your head while you stand or sit. The process is quick, simple, and completely painless. The scans produced are as precise as conventional CT (CAT) scans but use far less radiation. The applications in dentistry are limitless. We use these scans to provide the best treatment in dental implants, root canals, diagnosis of dental and facial pain, and more!
No matter your needs, 3D imaging makes it possible to plan and customize your care unlike anything ever before. You can have absolute confidence and satisfaction in the treatment you receive, knowing we’ve analyzed every problem with 3D technology.
The latest technological advancements provide improved safety and better treatment results.
- Safety – traditional dental films require minimal radiation for image development, but our digital x-ray system provides unsurpassed safety: up to 90% reduction compared to older film-based systems.
- Time Savings – Images captured instantly with a digital sensor mean less time you have to spend in the dental chair.
- Better Outcomes – Improved image clarity increases Dr. Frances Golly’s ability to diagnose and treat conditions. Software tools bring detailed magnification and detection tools into focus.
