Same-day CEREC crowns
Traditional crowns require two visits and a temporary crown in between visits. CEREC all-ceramic crowns are bonded to the tooth and create a more lifelike restoration than standard metal or metal-porcelain crowns. And because these crowns are bonded to the tooth, they can be many times stronger than metal-porcelain crowns.
The traditional method of tooth replacement (a bridge) has been replaced with the implant option. A titanium post is placed in the space of the missing tooth and next a crown is placed on the implant. Implants look and function nearly the same as the tooth they replace.
The foundation of oral health is the gums, or periodontium. Often neglected in the past, we aggressive
ly treat gum disease to avoid the tooth loss and poor overall health linked with the disease. We tailor periodontal treatment to you, whether you need one cleaning a year or four visits to keep you healthy.
Gone are the days when fillings must be silver. Newer composite, or tooth-colored fillings, have demonstrated longevity rivaling and usually exceeding the silver fillings of the 19th century. Additionally, the teeth can be prepared, or drilled, more conservatively and afterward they look more natural.
Soft Tissue Laser
Rather than using a scalpel or an electrosurge (which cuts tissue by burning it with electricity), we use a laser when possible. Lasers generate less heat, less bleeding, and can be less invasive than traditional methods of cutting tissue. Learn more about dental lasers.
Dr. Anderson likes to share his vision of what is and what can become using a variety of imaging tools. Our Nikon camera is used for taking wider angle photos and we use an intraoral camera for closeup photos of teeth and gums for illustrative purposes.
