After thirty years courting revolutionary exploration of prosthodontic possibilities, The Pi Dental Center is proud to announce another new concept in smile building. Because we can now engineer superior durability with no sacrifice to translucent, natural esthetics, we are naming the ultimate Pi Dental restoration our Capital Smile.
The name comes from the complaint most often brought to the Pi Dental Center — “I can’t eat anything that tastes good.” Taking that to the highest level solution, it is our goal that our patients can enjoy the most sumptuous premium steaks at establishments like The Capital Grille with no worries. No pain. No motion. No chewing issues. No breakage. Just pure dining pleasure.
The specialty of Prosthodontics has been impacted over the years with ever changing science and technology leading to a man-made third set of teeth. The first giant steps were cosmetic. Laboratories developed artistic ways to shape and color teeth so that crowns and veneers no longer appeared horsey, and in the hands of a skillful clinician became indistinguishable from natural teeth. Later the advent of dental implant restorations with CAD/CAM technology made the architecture of the smile more solid and functional, promoting longevity of the restoration prosthesis. Seemingly the profession was on the threshold of the ideal smile, even if a bit costly for the average pocket.
Halfway through 2016, it’s an intensely blended dedication of engineering, product development, cosmetic experience, fresh ideas and collaboration with the worldwide expertise of Global Dental Science, Inc., headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, creator of AvaDent digital removable dentures. Pi has always been about providing our patients the highest quality in the shortest time possible with consideration of the investment. The “Capital Smile” will upgrade technology, increase durability and longevity, and become a more cost effective way to sport a young, healthy smile.
