Modern dentistry offers more options than ever to help you restore and maintain an optimal level of health. While the strength and beauty of materials continue to advance, the skill of the practitioner makes a significant difference in every outcome. At Kwon Family Dentistry, we focus on utilizing the best techniques for comprehensive care, returning even the most damaged mouths to full health.
Sometimes teeth undergo significant damage due to cavities, substantial bite forces, trauma, or just normal functioning. If a root canal is needed to salvage a severely compromised nerve, the tooth may be especially fragile. Many situations leave teeth in danger of loss without restorative care. Dental crowns, or caps, allow these teeth to be rebuilt and covered with materials that mimic nature. Not only are most “capped” teeth indistinguishable from natural teeth, but they’re also unyielding and comfortable.
Crowns can be crafted to repair a single tooth, multiple teeth (including the entire mouth), or in conjunction with dental implants to fill a space. In fact, when missing teeth enter the equation, special consideration might be given to placing a dental bridge or implants.
CEREC - SINGLE APPOINTMENT TOOTH REPLACEMENT!
CEREC is the most advanced dental restorative system available today. For procedures traditionally requiring a messy impression of your tooth, a temporary crown or bridge, and a second visit for placement, CEREC streamlines the process…dramatically.
In ONE visit, 3D digital images of your teeth appear on the screen and Dr. Kwon and his team design a customized solution with innovative software. The images produce a crafted porcelain restoration through a milling process. Bonded into place minutes later, your new tooth appears and functions just as nature intended.
