SAME DAY TEETH



Updated On Saturday, February 23, 2019 09:17:45 AM

Crowns are artificial caps, normally made from a material like porcelain, put on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are generally used to fix a tooth's function and look following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has become so advanced that large parts of the tooth needs to be removed, crowns are often used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a cracked tooth from becoming worse, attach bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth has to be brought back to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth should usually be reduced in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a special laboratory, which makes a custom-designed crown. In many cases, a temporary crown is applied until the long-term crown is ready. Long-term crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are sometimes mistaken as veneers, but they are quite different. Veneers are usually applied just to fairly little areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With correct care, a good quality crown could last approximately 8 years or longer. It is essential to floss in the location of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Particular behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly reduce the life of a crown. Moreover, eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, or perhaps harm the crown.




Same Day Teeth Restorations

CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital images of locations requiring restoration and produce the suitable restoration on the spot.

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer system milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to make your crown.

CEREC can be used for a broad range of indications: partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays.

Today's Subject Is:

Ultrasonic Cleanings

We use ultrasonic scalers for the majority of adult dental cleanings. These devices utilize ultrasonic vibrations to help breakdown the plaque and calculus on the teeth that cause gingivitis and periodontal disease. The ultrasonic cleaners create microscopic bubbles that implode on the surface of the tooth, killing microorganisms and removing plaque and tartar in the process. Our instruments use a thin tip to better navigate in the periodontal pockets to help maintain optimal gingival health.


  • The treatment only uses water, no chemicals are used.

  • It can remove tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas, without any damage to the tooth enamel.

  • Manual scaling commonly uses pressure for cleaning, while the vibration produced by the scaling tip of an ultrasonic scaler is hardly perceptible. This makes ultrasonic cleaning appropriate to those with delicate teeth.

  • The cleaning process is much faster than manual scaling making your visit more comfy.


After your teeth have actually been cleaned with the ultrasonic cleaner, your teeth will be hand scaled to look for any residual deposits and then polished.
