Same Day Crowns

Same Day Crowns

Using the latest technology, Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Manufacture or ‘CAD/CAM’, we are able to fabricate a crown in one appointment in the office. There is no need for a temporary crown; this saves time and reduces discomfort. CEREC technology can also be used to manufacture porcelain fillings (inlays) and veneers.

Crowns

Crowns are used when an extensive restoration is required. Large fillings will not stand up to the enormous biting pressure.

Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic Dentistry also includes veneers, as well as crowns. Veneers are very thin pieces of custom-shaped porcelain or plastic that are bonded on the front of your teeth. They can be the solution for the correction of unwanted or uneven spaces between teeth, or for teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or crooked.

Inlays & Onlays

Cosmetic Dentistry includes replacing the damaged structure of a tooth when more than half is damaged. In this case we may advise inlays or onlays. Many times these are conservative alternatives to larger crowns.

Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain, gold or composite resins that are bonded directly to the teeth. These materials are much stronger than traditional metal or composite fillings and can help prevent further decay or damage.

Bridges

A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic, which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place are attached to the teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge, and is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Unlike removable partial bridges they cannot be removed from your mouth.

If you are missing any teeth and are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene practices, you may be a good candidate for a bridge or you may want to consider dental implants. A bridge is one option to fill the space in your mouth left by missing teeth. If left untreated, this space will allow the surrounding teeth to drift out of position and can cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to disease that can cause further tooth loss. Fixed bridges not only correct an altered bite, improve your chewing ability and speech, but they also safeguard your appearance by preventing the collapse of your facial features that can cause premature wrinkles and age lines.

In some cases where the span is large, Dr. Smith may recommend an implant-supported restoration.

Teeth Whitening

We will fabricate customized bleaching trays for you to use at home. We utilize stronger solutions than are available in over the counter preparations.
