Sometimes there are no options for a tooth, but to be extracted. Fortunately we have dental implants to replace those missing teeth.
This tooth was extracted because it had fractured too far to be saved. The implant was placed, and then was restored in one-visit with a digital process. Because the ceramics were machined in the office, it was easy to get a great blend of colors and translucencies to match the adjacent teeth.
Crowns are coverings over the diseased tooth. Our practice avoids them as much as possible, but when they are required, we go to great lengths to make them look fantastic.
They are completed in one-visit with NO impressions or temporaries. We take the hassle of getting crowns completed!
This molar had an extreme fracture through it and it was very painful. Think of a broken bone that will not heal. The ceramic crown is completed with a digital machining system immediately when the fracture occurred. This high strength digital crown holds everything together so life can go on!
Cosmetic makeovers are NOT always to get your teeth Hollywood white. Many times it is completed to solve a long-time problem of avoidance, neglect, or embarrassment.
A comprehensive work-up is completed before any treatment is completed, but when it is, it can be dramatic. Especially considering we do this in one day. Really.
Crowns are sometimes a required treatment modality, but if we can avoid them, we do. There are other ways to restore a tooth in great need of help. We can take out the “bad parts” of the tooth and leave the “good parts!” 🙂
We use a digital CAD/CAM system that can customize any sized piece to restore the tooth. No impressions! No temporaries! No kidding!
