Restore Your Smile in a Single Visit | Tyngsboro Dentist

When you decide to repair a damaged tooth, there are plenty of treatment options available on the current market. The problem is, many of them take more than one visit in order to complete, which may dissuade someone from committing to the fix. Because this not only means more trips to the dentist, but more time off of work, thereby causing more issues than a broken tooth. Fortunately, there has been a treatment option that will not only save you time and money, but pain. What’s that treatment option? CEREC® Restorations-in-a-Day.

CEREC® is the world’s only system for all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. For the patient this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care. No more silver fillings or discoloring smiles; the filling is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive, and plaque-resistant. We no longer need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit has been eliminated.

During your visit, the tooth is prepared and a 3D photograph is taken. From there, we use computer-aided design CAD software to create the restoration digitally. Using a single block of porcelain that is color-matched to your current tooth shade, the digitally designed restoration is sent to a milling machine where your restoration is cut in about 15 minutes. Once the restoration is finished being milled, it is fitted onto the prepared tooth and adjusted until the bite is accurate.

Why You Need Tooth-Colored Fillings | Tyngsboro Dentist

If you ask your average Joe what they would change if given the chance, there is no doubt plenty would say their smile. It’s your first impression to others, it’s the surefire sign you’re happy, and having one less than appealing may cause you to quit smiling. In the past, our dental restorations were composed of metallic materials, making your fixes not so discreet. In a society focused on a white, bright smile, people tend to want fillings that blend with the natural color of their teeth. Thanks to the advanced technology utilized by your dental professional, you can achieve your ideal smile with tooth-colored fillings.

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-sized fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth, making them a fantastic option for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than it does for a metal filling because composite fillings require the tooth be kept clean and dry while the cavity is being filled. Tooth-colored fillings are now used more often than amalgam or gold fillings, due to their cosmetic look. Need more reason to choose them? Here are the advantages:

  • Eliminates unnatural, traditional metal fillings
  • Diminishes discoloration caused by metal fillings
  • Prevents tooth decay and gum diseases
  • Strengthens your teeth
  • Undetectable to others; matches the exact shade of your teeth
