Rigby Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
At Cedar Creek, we know how important a great smile is to your confidence, oral health, and overall health. That’s why we have created cosmetic dentistry in Rigby that works with your busy schedule, while still maintaining quality service and outstanding results. For our patients that need crowns the same day, we have employed Cerec Same Day Crowns to bring results that last.
CEREC Same Day Crowns
You may be wondering who needs Cerec same day crowns and how the procedure works? The Cerec same day crowns work to replace fillings and help to restore teeth that may be weak, decayed, or broken. The Cerec procedure uses an all ceramic material to retain the natural beauty of your smile. Many dental offices require their patients to come into their office two separate times! That’s not the case at Cedar Creek Dental. With our state of the art Cerec technology, you will be in and out in one day.
How the Procedure Works
Depending on how healthy the tooth or the remaining structure of the tooth is, will play a role in how much restoration is involved in the procedure. It could a filling of full crown depending on the integrity of the tooth or teeth. Once Dr. Mikesell has determined how to proceed the tooth will be anesthetized and then prepared for a filling or crown. Any and all decay and weakened tissue is also removed at this stage. Using the Cerec machine and 3D software, Dr. Mikesell will then create your tooth restoration. Within a few minutes, (using his expertise and the cutting edge technology of the Cerec Machine) Dr. Mikesell is able to send the restoration data to a milling machine in the office. A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is then put into the milling machine and in 10-20 minutes the crown is fitted to ensure all dimensions are correct. The Cerec restoration is then polished and bonded to the affected tooth. And all this is done in one painless appointment!
Porcelain Veneers & Bridges
Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you wish that your smile was not only straight, but also brighter? Our smiles are one of the first things that people notice, so it makes sense that most of us want a smile that truly dazzles. With our porcelain veneers and bridges, that is exactly what you will get. Our trained Rigby cosmetic dentistry experts will give you something to smile about once you are fitted for your new set of Veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your tooth, creating a beautiful and vibrant smile without losing your natural teeth. Since the veneers are bonded to your natural teeth it is important that your natural teeth are in relatively good shape. Perfect candidates for porcelain veneers include people whose teeth are:
- Chipped or worn down
As your premier Rigby cosmetic dentistry facility, we can guarantee the lustrous quality of our porcelain veneers. When you receive porcelain veneers you can be assured that your smile will:
- Be Stain Resistant – Since a porcelain veneer tooth is created from a ceramic and therefore, glasslike, veneers are extremely stain resistant.
- Be Vibrant – Just how your tooth enamel is translucent and the underlying layer is opaque, veneers are able to recreate this natural occurrence, giving your smile a natural shiny luster.
What About Porcelain Bridges?
Porcelain bridges are an excellent alternative to “bridge the gap” between missing teeth. Though some people may turn to dental implants for a missing tooth or teeth, porcelain bridges are another popular option for Rigby cosmetic dentistry because they are much less invasive. So who could benefit from porcelain veneers? People who are missing a tooth that sits next to a tooth that is in need of a crown are the ideal patients for porcelain bridges. If you are not sure if you are a candidate for this procedure, contact us today for more information.
Getting A Porcelain Bridge: The Basics
This Rigby cosmetic dentistry procedure actually involves three teeth, two adjacent teeth to the one tooth you are missing. Depending on the space in your mouth, the two adjacent teeth (abutments) will be slightly reduced in size to make room for the bridge. An impression is then made to create two crowns and a false tooth. These are then assembled as one unit and then bonded onto the prepared teeth. And voila, you no longer have to deal with bite or jaw problems that can be associated with missing teeth.
Professional Teeth Whitening
One of our most popular Rigby cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening. This simple and effective treatment is a great option for those who want a whiter and brighter smile, but don’t necessarily need a complete dental overhaul. Many people can benefit from this simple procedure, since discoloration can happen for so many different reasons. These include:
- Eating or drinking stain causing food like, coffee, dark soda, black tea, red wine, etc.
- Developing teeth coming in contact with too much fluoride.
- Tobacco use
- Illness or from medicine, like an antibiotic
- Teeth injuries
- Genetics or aging
There are many different options out on the market today that promise whiter smiles. Instead of spending money on something that “might work” talk to your dental professional first about this simple Rigby cosmetic dental procedure. Dr. Mikesell will be able to discuss the safest and quickest way to whiten your teeth. A couple options that are made available today are:
- In Office Teeth Whitening – By using top of the line dental technology, your dentist will be able to visible brighten your teeth, in less than an hour.
- At Home Teeth Whitening – If you would rather whiten at home, we offer an at home treatment that includes whitening trays. Your dentist will talk to you about proper uses and risks. This treatment can sometimes take a week or two before results are noticeably visible.
