If you are looking for a simpler way to fill in missing teeth space then dental bridges are perfect for you. A bridge is a customized to fit the gaps in between your missing teeth for a more natural and enhanced smile.

Don’t live with a broken or chipped tooth. Ask about Dental Bonding. | Tyngsboro, MA

Dental Bonding is a great way for you to regain confidence in your smile if you have chipped or broken one (or more) of your teeth. Dental Bonding is a process of directly applying a tooth-colored composite to your tooth. Once the composite is applied, our dentist will sculpt and shape it to make a perfect looking tooth. A high-intensity ultraviolet light is then used to harden the composite and is finished off by a fine polishing.

Not only is dental bonding useful for chipped and broken teeth, but it is great for stained teeth that are resistant to professional whitening treatment.

Although dental bonding does not last as long as veneers or crowns; with proper care, dental bonding composites can last for years.

For more information on dental bonding or to make an appointment, please contact Dr. James Yankowskas at (978) 649-7773 or visit our website.

What is CEREC? | Tyngsboro, MA

Dr. James Yankowskas is proud to offer CEREC®.

CEREC®, allows our doctors to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving patients time and inconvenience.

CEREC® is the world’s only system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC® you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all-ceramic dental crown, onlay, or veneer! For the patient this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.

What does this innovation mean for a patient?

A tooth-colored restoration means 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.

How does it work?

The tooth that requires a CEREC® restoration is prepared and a 3D photograph is taken of the prepared tooth. 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. The milling process usually takes about 15 minutes per restoration.

Once the restoration is finished being milled, it is fitted onto the prepared tooth and adjusted until the bite is accurate.

This procedure is great for dental crowns, veneers and the replacement of old fillings to give you the longest-lasting, best-looking restorations.

For more information on CEREC® and if it’s right for you, contact Dr. James Yankowskas for an appointment and information on Dental Implants, at (978) 649-7773 or visit our website.
