Thank you for visiting our site. Dr. Zammerilla uses innovative technology to diagnose and treat your dental needs. In our Family and Cosmetic Dental office, you will find advanced technology in an up-to-date setting.
After graduating from St. Vincent College and the
University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Zammerilla has
been practicing dentistry in Pleasant Hills for over 20 years.
We offer digital radiography, which has many advantages over traditional x-rays: less radiation, no chemicals for the environment, image enhancing to improve viewing, instant viewing, and ability to store and send electronically to specialists and insurance companies.
Along with traditional ways to check for decay such as x-rays and feeling for a soft area with a dental explorer, we also have a diagnostic tool called DIAGNOdent. Using this laser technology, when the smallest amount of decay is present, a fluorescent light bounces back to the sensor and translates a digital readout.
Oral cancer detection is also offered using VelScope, a concentrated light that identifies abnormal areas. Since most pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions are completely pain free it is important to notify us right away!
We are a family practice with emphasis on Cosmetic Dentistry including whitening, veneers, and crowns.
One of the leading technologies available today is CAD/CAM. Using CAD/CAM technology is healthier for you because it provides accurate restorations, made with durable materials that work with advanced dental adhesives. A digital image is taken using a special optical camera that records the tooth's exact dimensions directly to our computer and eliminates the need for conventional impressions to be taken. The images are sent to our laboratory and your restoration is returned to us to be cemented in place.
We welcome you to our office and look forward to giving you the smile you deserve!
