Single Tooth Implants

January 6, 2014

Dental ImplantDo you have a full smile, or is a missing tooth threatening to sideline your confidence and good oral health? At my Burlington dental office, I offer a restorative dental service that can help you replace what you’ve lost. That service is known as dental implants.

With a dental implant, I can help you bridge the gap from one tooth to another, restoring your good health and your confidence. A dental implant can also help you prevent the loss of other teeth later on. That’s because dental implants are structured like natural teeth, with a crown on top and a prosthetic titanium root underneath.

Replacing a missing tooth and its root is important, because your roots play a very important role. Besides anchoring your teeth to your jaw, they also stimulate bone growth. When you have a missing root, the jaw can atrophy. As it does, nearby teeth can become weak and eventually shift or fall out. Dental implants help prevent this by replacing your natural root with one made of titanium, a biocompatible metal. Once in place, your implant will form a natural bond with the jaw, anchoring your new tooth and keeping the jaw strong going forward.

A dental implant takes two phases: the placement phase and the restoration phase. I perform both at my Burlington dental office. Many other dentists will refer their patients to an outside doctor for the placement phase, but at Complete Dental Care you’ll be surrounded by a dental team you already know and trust.

Is a dental implant the best way for you to fix the gap in your smile? Call my Burlington dental office today to schedule a consultation. I’ll assess your health and your needs and answer any questions you might have before helping you decide on a customized plan that’s exactly right for you.

My office happily serves patients from Bedford, Billerica, and Woburn.

Effective Restorative Care with CEREC One-Visit Dentistry

September 17, 2013

crownsWhen a tooth is injured or badly decayed, restorative care is a must. To repair a tooth in this position, I’ll use a protective crown. The problem with a conventional crown, though, is that it can take a couple of appointments to complete. It also requires a temporary that can be problematic and the material used can irritate your gums. Often, the final crown is not as natural looking as a CEREC crown.

That’s why I offer one-visit dentistry with CEREC. Using CEREC, I can cap a damaged or decayed tooth with a fully customized crown in just an hour and a half, saving you time and getting back to your normal schedule quickly. CEREC materials mimic natural tooth structure more closely than any other materials used in dentistry. They are kinder to your gums and are extremely durable.

How Does CEREC One-Visit Dentistry Work?

Your one-visit restoration with CEREC begins with an oral exam. Then, after talking to you about your situation, I’ll create a 3-D model of your tooth and design your crown. That information will be fed to my CEREC machine, which will go to work on your personalized restoration while you rest comfortably in my Burlington dental office. In about an hour, your new crown will be ready and we’ll bond it into place.

The Advantages of CEREC One-Visit Dentistry

Here’s what you can look forward to with your finished CEREC crown:

  • Natural-looking results
  • Conserves your natural tooth
  • More functional smile
  • Improves tooth structure
  • Healthier gums
  • Less time spent at the dental office
