Same Day Crowns with CEREC Technology

As our teeth age they tend to get beat up.  Either from decay, broken teeth, or withstanding every day wear and tear, teeth often need to be crowned.  A crown is sometimes referred to as a ‘cap’, and that’s just what it is.  They are designed to surround the tooth 360 degrees, thus providing the protection the tooth needs, all the while looking strikingly like the natural tooth.

A bridge is one of the few ways we have to replace missing teeth.  A bridge is where a fake tooth is attached to two crowns on each side of it, and that unit is cemented in placed, thus replacing a missing tooth and simultaneously crowning both teeth on each adjacent side.

CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) Technology

Of all the advancements in Dentistry over the years the thing that is most exciting is how much technology has increased the quality of treatment we can offer. Dental Technology has now made it possible to decrease your number of office visits for routine dental treatment. Here at Advanta we have the ability to make your crowns and inlays/onlays all in one visit, no impressions, no waiting on the labs, and when you leave you are done with that treatment, no second visits. In addition to crowns in one day, we can also replace plastic or metal fillings with porcelain. Porcelain has the strength of metal and the esthetics of white composite. Please ask us at your next visit or over the phone if this is a good option for you and your oral health.

Night Guards and Sports Guards

These appliances can single handedly make the biggest impact on the quality of an individuals life than almost any other product or service we provide.  Individuals who have a tendency to grind and clench their teeth (often referred to as bruxism) can have acute problems and prolonged problems.  Acutely they can develop pain in their jaw, teeth, or muscles.  They can have difficulty sleeping or relaxing.  If the bruxism continues it can, and most likely will result in fractured teeth, root canals, or possibly extractions.

A simple night guard can help prevent all of that.  They are made right in our office, custom fitted to your individual mouth.  Advanta Dental guarantees them as well, so if you wear it out they are replaced at not additional cost.  If you loose it or your dog eats it…. (and it has happened), there is a small replacement fee.

They cost approximately half the price of a crown, but in the long run will save you from expensive future treatment if left unchecked.

Invisalign

Often referred to as ‘clear braces’, Invisalign is a wonderful way for individuals to get the straight smile they’ve always wanted without going through the discomfort of traditional braces.

How does it work?

Invisalign works buy using pressure points precisely placed into plastic trays that over time move your teeth where we want them.  You wear a new set of plastic trays every two weeks until the desired outcome is achieved.  You will be sent home with 6-8 weeks worth of trays to wear on your own, after which you return to the office for a quick check up and to get your replacement trays.

The two most common questions are, “How long will it take?” and “How much is it?”  Because every case is unique its difficult to answer those questions until an evaluation has been completed at which time we can have a better idea of the case difficulty.

Many people are unaware that there are other options if you suffer from sleep apnea or severe snoring other than the C-PAP.  Oral devices can be made that help hold open your airway while sleeping, and we’ve had great success and encouraging results.  Patients who struggle with this condition and can’t use a C-PAP often find the oral appliances as their saving grace.  If you struggle or think you struggle with restless sleep due to snoring, or you want to try something different for your sleep apnea, set up an appointment for a free consultation at Advanta Dental, an oral appliance may be the answer for you.
