Dental Technology

Dental Technology

Ashton Dental is committed to providing patients with the very best treatment that modern technology has to offer.

CEREC® Cad Cam Dentistry

Cerec creates beautiful all ceramic crowns, veneers and onlays in one visit. This eliminates the need for impressions and temporary crowns and reduces the number of dental appointments.

Laser Dentistry

We incorporate lasers into our practice for procedures on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissues. The latest laser bleaching techniques are available.

OPG Machine

Ashton Dental’s OPG Digital X-ray machine takes x-rays of the whole jaw. This enables us to make a complete diagnosis of the mouth. Digital xrays are developed instantly so there is no more waiting and no need for a second appointment.

Sopro Intra-Oral Camera

This wonderful technology allows you to relax in your chair while simultaneously observing real-time images of the inside of your mouth magnified on an adjacent television monitor. The Sopro Intra-Oral camera also uses blue light technology to detect decay in teeth. Not only does this technology make it simple to see and understand what the doctor is telling you, it makes it simple for us to keep incredibly accurate records from one visit to the next.


Dr Ashton has been performing dental implants for more than 15 years and is committed to providing a high level of care for dental implant patients. The use of the Piezosurgery device provides for more precise surgical and dental implant procedures when compared to traditional bone cutting instruments.

In Surgery Television

Televisions are mounted on the ceiling of all our surgeries. Watching a DVD during your dental treatment is a great way to relax.
