July 11th, 2019 Cosmetic Dentistry 0 comments on “Top 5 Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures”

Cosmetic dental care offers many different procedures ranging from simple acts like teeth whitening treatments to more complex operations such as gum reshaping. With so many procedures some are more costly than others, this is dependent on your oral needs and desired outcome.

In this article we’ve outlined the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures so you can research them further and compare the differences, to best decide which option is optimal for you.

  1. Composite Resin Bonding -This cosmetic dentistry procedure is used to repair chips, cracks and small gaps within a tooth. The cracks are filled using a natural looking dental composite (a tooth-colored liquid adhesive) and bonding it to the compromised tooth. Its average cost is $350 to $1500 per tooth. The average length of time for the procedure is 45 minutes to one hour.
  2. Teeth Whitening – This is also known as teeth “bleaching”. This procedure helps patients that have stained, yellowed or discolored teeth. The average cost for this procedure is $650.00. Average length of this procedure is one hour.
  3. Veneers – Ideally for patients that cannot receive a tooth whitening procedure. A veneer is a fabricated natural tooth colored porcelain shell that is placed over the patient’s original teeth. The process for placing porcelain veneers generally takes two to three weeks. Costing roughly $925 to $2,500 per tooth
  4. Dental Implants – Typically, the placement of an implant consists of surgically inserting a titanium rod (acting as the artificial root of the tooth) into the jaw. It then fuses to the bone during the process of osseointegration. Recovery time for this procedure is six months and the average cost is $900 and $3,000 per tooth
  5. Invisible braces – These are completely translucent aligners that act as removeable braces to correct crooked teeth, overbites, and widely spaced teeth. The length of time that the braces are worn is about 15 months, sometimes up 24. Cost of these types of braces range from $2,500 to $7,000.

Those are the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Most cosmetic dentists tend to offer advanced care. Because of this, you should expect a very comfortable and pain free cosmetic dentistry procedure that will produce attractive and enduring results for you to enjoy and be proud of.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Same Day CEREC Crowns

June 6th, 2019 Cosmetic Dentistry 0 comments on “Advantages and Disadvantages of Same Day CEREC Crowns”

In the past, it would take two to three weeks to get a permanent crown in place. Today, thanks to CEREC® technology, patients can receive same day crowns. With this procedure, Dr. David S. Krishingner creates a 3D image of the individual’s mouth. This allows our team to create the crown and bond it within the same appointment. There are advantages and disadvantages of this procedure, but most patients find it a worthwhile endeavor.

Pro: It Looks and Feels Like a Natural Tooth

In the past, dental patients would complain about how the restoration did not blend in well with the surrounding teeth. Fortunately, these advanced crowns restore the shape of the mouth while being virtually undetectable. You will be able to eat all your favorite foods because it is just as strong as your other teeth.

Con: The Scanning May Not Detect Extended Fractures

If you need a crown to deal with a fracture in the tooth, then you may want to proceed with caution. The camera placed in your mouth will not be able to locate fractures below the gum line. Anyone concerned about this as a possibility should talk to Dr. Krishingner about other options.

Pro: It Requires Less Drilling

The recovery process is much faster with CEREC crowns. This is partly due to the fact the procedure does not require as much drilling. This means you get to retain more of your natural enamel.

Con: Only Certain Dentists Offer This Procedure

You do not have to worry about this disadvantage when you are at Water Oak Dental Group. Dentists offering these crowns require certification. Fortunately, our dentist has all the qualifications you would look for to feel confident.
