Dr. Mary Lewis, a top dentist in Virginia Beach, takes pride in providing her patients with the most modern options available in dentistry today. In her whole practice, including cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry procedures, she uses advanced dental technology in Virginia Beach to create the best possible smiles.
Here are a few of the technology options Dr. Lewis offers her patients.
Air abrasion is a relatively new decay removal tool that we often use in place of the traditional dental drill when we perform fillings. This innovative system allows us to conserve more of the patient’s natural tooth structure and reduce the risk of enamel micro-fracturing. It’s used in the treatment of relatively small and shallow cavities.

Digital Radiography (X-rays)
We’ve invested in a new way of looking into your mouth—a procedure that’s fast, comfortable, and incredibly precise. Using digital radiography, we can clearly identify all external and internal anatomical structures and accurately diagnose your dental problems. Even more amazing, we can immediately translate that information into a large, clear, accurate image, projected onto a monitor that patient and doctor can view together in the office. Additionally, while radiation from traditional dental X-rays is already small, digital X-rays use significantly less radiation – up to 80% less.
A Panorex image is an X-ray that depicts a panoramic view of your mouth, from one side to the other. This image can help the dentist understand the relationship between your teeth, jaws, and occlusion (how your top and bottom teeth fit together). When planning extensive restorative or cosmetic cases, a Panorex may be necessary, in addition to intra- and extra-oral photos and digital X-rays. It’s also used for patients undergoing any type of orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign.
