Modern dentistry has made a number of exciting advancements for patients who want an improved smile, and we now have the ability to offer our patients the smile of their dreams using cosmetic dental services.
CEREC technology offers patients their crowns in a single visit. This new technology uses advanced 3D imaging devices to create a detailed image of your mouth. This image is then used to produce a computer-generated crown that fits your tooth precisely.
Dr. Leavitt makes same-day crowns, which has several benefits for patients, including:
- Crowns that are created and placed in one visit
- The patient is only numbed once
- There is no temporary crown placed
- CEREC crowns are strong, natural looking and beautiful
- CEREC crowns are ceramic with no metal
In addition to crowns, CEREC technology could be used to create veneers, onlays and fillings.
Our office uses tooth-colored, advanced composite resin filling materials, instead of silver fillings. By filling damaged teeth with this technology, there is no metal or mercury, and we filter all of our waste water to ensure it is metal-free to avoid polluting waterways.
We have the tools to safely brighten your smile, and with our state-of-the-art in-home bleaching kits, your teeth can be whitened in a short time with minimal effort.
Before starting any teeth-whitening regimen, please speak with your dentist.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns allow your dentist to restore your broken and worn teeth. CEREC technology allows your dentist to create a computer-generated crown that offers a perfect fit on your damaged tooth.
If a dental implant cannot be performed, your dentist might suggest a bridge. This procedure uses the strength of the neighboring teeth to help a replacement tooth fill in the gaps.
In addition to these procedures, your dentist will use advanced technology to check your teeth for developing microscopic fractures and to check broken teeth that would benefit from replacement.
Veneers are used to improve the color, position and shape of your teeth. Veneers, which might be as thin as 0.3 mm, will immediately improve the overall appearance of your teeth.
Bonding involves sculpting white composite filling material and chemically adhering it to your teeth. This procedure allows your doctor to quickly fill in gaps, cover discoloration and reshape teeth. Additionally, bonding does not require anesthesia.
