For nearly a century, dentistry has relied on simple 2D x-rays to diagnose dental disease. While helpful, dentists are still restricted in their ability to see the whole picture with a two dimensional image. Dr. Kelly uses a state of the art, modern three dimensional Cone Beam CT that creates computer generated images of the teeth and jaws. This technology is light years ahead of the 2D X-rays of the past. Dr. Kelly uses 3D to for early diagnosis of dental disease, implant planning, imaging the TMJs, and measurement of airway constrictions. IT IS AMAZING HOW MUCH MORE YOU CAN SEE!
CEREC by Sirona
CEREC is an CAD system that allows 3-D digital imaging of teeth. Using this modern replacement for gooey impression material. Dr. Kelly can Design Smiles Digitally, manufacture dental restorations in one visit, and treatment plan complex cases including implant placement and orthodontic movement.
Beginning in 2004, Dr. Kelly was one of the first North Carolina Dentists to use CEREC technology to design and manufacture porcelain dental restorations in his office. Through the years patients have come to appreciate the quality and ease of this process that is completed in one appointment making the process of getting a crown more convenient and done without the dreaded "temporary". Even more importantly than the convenience, Dr. Kelly makes many ceramic restorations himself and the digital technology allows a more precise fit and custom design.
With this digital technology, advanced ceramic materials and bonding techniques, porcelain restorations have opened a whole new realm of possibility for treating teeth that need crowns and more conservative porcelain inlays, onlays, and veneers. More than ever, this technology allows less tooth structure to be compromised when preparing restorations, typically only replacing the diseased and damaged parts of teeth. Dr. Kelly can attest that many years of experience, sound clinical judgement, and a dedication to designing dentistry himself just after operating on the tooth play a large role in his success with this technology.
William Kelly Dentistry is convenient and accessible from Gastonia and the surrounding area with easy access to I-85/US-74 and local shopping. The new freestanding building was designed to house two distinct dental practices. While the building appears large- housing two practices, within it you will find Dr. Kelly’s space a distinct and private environment that is perfect for receiving optimal care.
