We find in our work that many people are hesitant to fix their broken, damaged, decayed or even missing teeth. There are a variety of reasons why they choose not to make that call to our Park City, UT, office, but the ramifications of that choice can be staggering. If you don’t repair damaged teeth, further damage and decay can occur. If you don’t replace your missing teeth, the existing ones can shift, resulting in serious bite problems, which can affect your ability to chew and speak normally.
What is CEREC?
If you’ve put off treatment because you think the process will be long, uncomfortable, or disruptive to your daily life, our CEREC same-day crowns and bridges may be the answer for which you’ve been looking. Call our welcoming office today, and we’ll set up a consultation for you. We can explain to you the process, which is fairly simple. It involves the use of an intraoral camera to take digital pictures of your damaged tooth or area of missing teeth. These pictures become a virtual model, which is then turned into a new crown or bridge right here in our office in just a few short hours. You can walk in and walk out the same day with a brand new smile—and the confidence that goes along with it.
This is very different from the traditional crown and bridge process, which includes taking inconvenient impressions and wearing a temporary—and sometimes uncomfortable—piece until your new crown or bridge comes in weeks later.
Crowns are custom fitted and bonded onto an existing tooth, restoring the appearance of the tooth and preventing additional damage from being done to it.
A bridge replaces an entire tooth or multiple teeth. They can either be anchored to existing teeth or held in place with a dental implant. They are a permanent, comfortable solution for restoring your damaged smile.
At Park City Dental Associates, we have the options you need to restore and protect the smile you deserve. Reach out to our caring team in our Park City, UT, office today, and we will look forward to helping you map out your journey to ultimate oral health.
