At our dental practice we do same day crowns. You may be asking, what are same day crowns and what can it provide for me?

It is a 3D system that lets us make porcelain crowns and inlays all in one appointment. We have actually now been using this technology for many years and like it more than ever.

Same day crowns are an in-surgery computer system that allows us to change damaged or missing tooth structures with a ceramic material that's as close to a natural tooth as is possible.

This is done while you remain in the practice, in just one visit. All ceramic porcelain inlays and onlays, veneers and crowns that look and feel like natural teeth can be made and placed in a single visit, normally in about an hour.

So exactly what is the treatment?

We scan the opposite teeth and the way the teeth bite together first. We eliminate the old filling, and degeneration and any thin weak tooth product and scan the readied tooth.

After this we stop working in the mouth and begin working on the computer.

Everybody enjoys seeing the pictures of their teeth and the designing of their new tooth. We make 3D design and this info is sent to the milling system.

Everyone asks if this is like 3D printing and yes it is, but the tooth isn't developed layer by layer, it is cut from a block in the machine, which is much more durable.

The block is then precisely carved to produce your new restoration, which is wonderful.

At last, the custom made crown restoration bonded seamlessly into the tooth, strengthening and sealing it at the same time then we clean up!

We have to ensure that you can bite properly, that its smooth and that you can floss.

The Conversation Of The Day Is:

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.

There are a number of types of bridges. We will talk about the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last years with correct home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.

A Couple Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:

  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.

  • Maintain facial shape.

  • Fill space of missing teeth.

  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

  • Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.

  • Restore your smile.


Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge include?

Getting a bridge typically needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks till your next visit.

At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.

You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.

Why Consider Dental Bridges?

This is an option for filling the area created by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for assistance, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.

It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to shift inward, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
