Restore Teeth in One Visit With Same Day Dental Crowns and Bridges
Our Miami dental office offers same day dental crowns and bridges and hopes to help you keep your natural teeth and maintain a healthy biting force for your entire life. Providing durable and long-lasting restorations is one way we can treat your dental problems and repair your smile.
At Greenstein Dental, we use natural-looking, all-ceramic same day dental crowns and bridges to restore your teeth and fill gaps caused by missing teeth.
Crowns (often referred to as “caps”) are fixed restorations permanently cemented over natural teeth or dental implants to restore function and cosmetics. Crowns protect a compromised tooth from further damage or even tooth loss. Our office places crowns on teeth that have had trauma, a root canal, or large cavities and fillings. Sometimes it’s necessary to use crowns on patients who clench or grind their teeth as part of our TMJ solutions.
Most dental offices provide restorative dentistry, but what makes Greenstein Dental so different is our ability to deliver you beautiful, permanent crowns in just one day!
We offer the latest technological advances in the fabrication of crowns using the CEREC CAD/CAM machine. This revolutionary machine allows us to design and craft a crown in about an hour and 30 minutes. We select shades and tints to blend your new crown in with your natural smile.
This technology eliminates:
- Temporary crowns or multiple visits
- Gooey Impression or smelly acrylic materials
- Extra appointments or lost time from work
Our patients relax with a good book or watch a movie from an iPad while the technician designs the crown using the computer software. You can even sit and watch the process if you would like.
At Greenstein Dental, we advise you on the best materials for your particular situation so that you walk out smiling with your finished restoration in one visit!
Bridge the Gap
Often times with things that we hear out in radio, television and marketing, teeth in a day, implants can be placed, a tooth is restored, you get a full smile again; there are occasions when that apply. There are other occasions when you simply have to place the implant and wait before you can restore it. The beauty of an implant is that if you are missing a tooth, some trauma, something happened and you lost a tooth but the teeth around it are in great shape, then let’s place the implant and individually fix the area that has the issue instead of what we used to do as dentists, which is drill down the adjacent teeth and put in a fixed bridge, glue three teeth in when you only needed one. Having said that, there are occasions where both of the teeth on either side are in need of help. An implant may be still something that you want but since you need to restore the teeth on either side, you might want to consider a bridge and take care of the whole side of your mouth in one fell swoop. That’s the idea behind spending time with you and figuring out what’s going to apply in your mouth. What’s going to work most effectively for you.
Bridges are a permanent solution to tooth replacement. By using a tooth on either side of the empty space for support, this restoration is bonded into place and fills the gap where either a tooth or multiple teeth were previously lost.
Bridges are ideal solutions for patients who cannot or do not wish to have dental implants. The biggest disadvantage to a bridge is that it requires us to file down your teeth that will support the device – even if those teeth are healthy and free of cavities.
Using our CEREC, we can also provide same day dental crowns and bridges saving you time away from work and family.
We recommend that patients consider either bridges or dental implants to replace missing teeth. Avoiding replacement of your missing tooth can lead to gum, bone, and bite problems due to the continued movement of adjacent teeth in the area, let alone a worse cosmetic appearance over time.
A quick solution to your missing tooth problem, bridges can last for many, many years if cared for properly.
