Dentistry benefits significantly from evolving technology. Spurred by the dental profession and industry to provide continuously improved care for patients, advancements in dental tools and techniques are often significant. Newer technology can improve every area of a dental practice, from routine general dentistry to more intricate cosmetic procedures and restorative treatments. Not all dentists, however, are motivated to incorporate the most modern dental solutions into their practice. Fortunately for his patients, Dr. Patrick F. McEvoy has a long history of providing outstanding care by investing in the latest dental technology. At his state-of-the-art practice in Mountainview, CA, Dr. McEvoy is able to make your dental treatments as comfortable, efficient, long-lasting, and natural-looking as possible.

Tools for Better Comfort
Dr. McEvoy has several methods at his disposal to make your dental treatment more pleasant. For example, patients are amazed by The Wand® Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA), which delivers immediate, painless dental anesthesia through a computer-controlled system. In addition to vastly improved comfort, the Wand® leaves patients with no numbness in their lips, cheeks, or tongues, which means you can speak clearly and have full control of your mouth immediately after your treatment. Laser dentistry is another way that Dr. McEvoy provides incredibly comfortable dental care. This breakthrough technology is so effective and efficient that no anesthesia is even needed for the majority of cases.
Tools to Improve Efficiency
Efficiency is one of the best reasons to go to a dentist using the latest technologies. With laser dentistry, the time it takes to complete your dental treatment—as well as your recovery time—are both drastically reduced. Dr. McEvoy also offers one-visit dental crowns whenever possible using CEREC® technology. CEREC®, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is hands-down the fastest, most convenient way to get a restorative or cosmetic dental crown. Our x-rays, 3-D scanners, and intraoral cameras are other ways that we improve efficiency as well as precision.
Technology for Advanced Restoration
Dental implants are one of the most groundbreaking technical developments in modern dentistry. Dr. McEvoy surgically implants these small, biocompatible titanium posts in the jaw tissue of patients with missing teeth. When healed, they are fused with the bone and support permanent, natural-looking dental restorations. As a highly trained implant dentist, Dr. McEvoy places and restores dental implants so patients do not have to go to more than one office to get their work done.

Not only is treatment improved, but it is easier for Dr. McEvoy to diagnose conditions and—even better—to help you prevent potential probelms in the first place.
