CEREC One Visit Dental Restorations
In the past, if a patient needed to have a tooth restored with a dental crown, it was quite the process. It would take at least two appointments, a messy dental impression, and spending 2-3 weeks with a temporary crown, just to repair one tooth. Thankfully, Brookside Dental Care has a better solution. With CEREC technology, Dr. Griffith can design, fabricate, and place a completely custom-made permanent dental crown in just one easy appointment. This approach creates and delivers a crown in as little as one hour without compromising quality.
Traditional Dental Crown & Bridge
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that simply fits over the top of a damaged tooth With a crown, Dr. Griffith can repair a large cavity, replace missing parts of a broken tooth, and even cosmetically improve a misshapen or undersized tooth. For patients missing one or more teeth in a row, crowns can also be used to support prosthetic teeth to fill in the gaps, forming a bridge. Dr. Griffith personally designs these restorations to ensure they fit seamlessly into a patient’s smile.
When it comes to fixing small cavities and slightly damaged teeth, tooth-colored fillings are the perfect solution. Unlike traditional amalgam (silver) fillings, they can be colored to match a patient’s natural enamel, making the restoration practically undetectable in the mouth. The composite resin material also forms a very strong bond to the tooth, enabling Dr. Griffith to preserve more of your natural tooth structure. The result is a fully repaired tooth that looks great and can be trusted to last.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
For hundreds of years, dentures have offered a way to help patients with extensive tooth loss, and thanks to the latest advancements in dental prosthetics, they are better than ever. No matter how many teeth a person is missing, Dr. Griffith can create a full or partial denture that is comfortable and natural-looking. Plus, he’s also able to offer implant-retained dentures so patients can enjoy the most secure and reliable fit available.
