Our Technology

At Astoria Dental Group, Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel are proud to bring all the latest cosmetic dentistry technology to our patients. In the years that we have served patients from Manhattan and throughout the New York City area, we have seen dental technology improve tremendously — our patients can now enjoy more comfortable and effective dentistry than ever before!

Computer Smile Imaging

Get a sneak preview of your new smile before any treatment begins! With computer imaging technology from SmilePix, our dentists can digitally enhance your photo to show you the results you may achieve following cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Computer smile imaging can show the dazzling effects that porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, Invisalign® invisible braces, restorative dentistry, and other procedures can have on your smile. No matter which cosmetic or restorative dentistry treatments you are considering, SmilePix can help you visualize the new you.

Intraoral Camera

Mounted on the end of a pen-shaped instrument, the tiny intraoral camera can be used to provide detailed imaging of the teeth and gums. Digital images are captured instantly and sent to a TV screen mounted above each treatment chair, where patient and dentist can view them together.

Intraoral cameras deliver high-quality images that can help patients learn about problem areas and better understand their treatment, which increases their comfort before and during a procedure. Intraoral cameras are quickly becoming the gold standard in cosmetic dentistry offices and are integral to the treatments we offer to our patients from Manhattan and throughout the New York City area.

Trios Digital Scanner

The Trios digital scanner is a device used in dentistry to create highly accurate digital impressions of a patient’s teeth and gums. This technology replaces the need for traditional putty impressions that can be uncomfortable and messy for patients. The scanner works by using a wand-like tool to capture images of the patient’s mouth, which are then converted into 3D digital models. These digital models can be used to design and create dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and orthodontic appliances, with great precision and accuracy.

DIAGNOdent® — Advanced Cavity Detection

Our DIAGNOdent® diagnostic laser allows our dentists to detect early decay that is hidden in tooth crevices, long before conventional methods would normally find it. The DIAGNOdent® laser reveals cavities at such an early stage, in fact, that in some cases, fluoride treatments alone can reverse the decay and rebuild your healthy tooth structure!

In-House Laboratory

Our cosmetic dentistry practice features its own on-site laboratory so that any repairs or fabrication can be done on the premises. This allows for quicker and more efficient service for our patients.

SimPlant™ One-Day Dental Implants

Our dental practice is one of the few to offer one-day dental implants using the SimPlant™ system. This digitized process allows patients to go home with a long-lasting dental implant after just one visit to our cosmetic dentistry office. Read more about SimPlant™ dental implants.

Dental Implants + CT Scan

When determining whether a patient is a good candidate for dental implants, our dentist use a CT scan to provide superior analysis of patients’ gums and bone structure. This process is important in helping our dentist determine whether a patient has sufficient bone thickness to support a dental implants.
