CEREC Same Day Restorations
CAD/CAM technology is used to help the dental team fabricate precise shapes and sizes for dental restorations including inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges.
Commonly used to expose more tooth structure. Crown lengthening involves the removal of gum tissue and/or bone to expose more of a tooth’s structure.
Crown lengthening involves the removal of gum tissue and/or bone to expose more of a tooth’s structure. Crown lengthening is performed to address a gummy smile, or a smile in which the teeth structure is excessively covered by gingival tissue. A gummy smile may make teeth appear smaller than they actually are. This procedure may be performed cosmetically or may also be performed to help improve gum health.
A sinus lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the premolar and molar areas of your mouth. To add bone, an incision is made where the premolar and molar teeth were previously located. Once the bone is exposed, a small circular shape is made in the bone to access the sinus. Once the sinus is accessed, the sinus membrane is gently pushed up and away from the upper jaw. Once this is done, bone graft material is placed into the sinus space to change the shape and provide support. Once the bone is in place, the incision is closed and the healing process begins.
Soft Tissue Grafting
If gum recession is present and tooth roots are exposed, a gum graft may be recommended.
Bone grafting is the replacement or enhancement of bone around teeth. When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone collapses. Bone grafting is performed to reverse bone loss or enhance existing bone. The grafting material can be taken from parts of the body or from synthetic material. Bone grafting allows for proper support of dental implants or prostheses.
