This cosmetic work consists in a thin layer of ceramic material cemented on the front surface of a tooth, is mostly use to improve the aesthetic of a smile by changing color, shape and positioning, although we have to remove surface of tooth for the placement of veneers this is one of the most conservative options regarding smile improvements and a really common alternative to braces in ideal cases.

Inlays and Onlays

Modified crowns such as inlays and onlays give us a more conservative approach to tooth preparations, they are indirect restorations which means they are fabricated in a dental lab from materials such as emax and porcelain same as crowns, matching specific size and shape of the cavity and then cemented, this is an alternative to direct restorations made of composite or amalgam when the tooth has experienced too much damage too support a basic filling but we still have enough healthy structure to not do a crown, this step is considered one step before needing a crown.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthesis that seeks to replace one or several missing teeth which need to be supported by the teeth adjacent on each side of the empty space.To make a dental bridge it is necessary to prepare the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth as crowns, since the dental bridge is a solid structure which is elaborated by a dental laboratory and consists of joining the crowns on the remaining teeth and the crown(s) of the tooth or teeth to replace.The process to make a dental bridge consists ideally of two appointments: The first one, to prepare the teeth for the bridge, take impressions, andsend them to the dental laboratory, which will take approximately 7 business days to elaborate it.Meanwhile, a temporary bridge will be placed. The second appointment will be to cement the final bridge.The number of appointments may vary depending on the case of each patient.At Advanced Smiles Dentistry we offer dental bridges made […]

Same Day Crown

Densah Burs are externally irrigated and designed to be used at drill speeds of 800-1500 rpm. They are marked with laser markings from 3-20 mm depth. Densah® Burs have a tapered geometry; catalog number is a reflection of their minor and major diameter dimension. E.g., Densah® Bur VT3848 has a (minor-diameter) of 3.8 mm and a coronal (major-diameter) of 4.8 mm at 11.5 mm laser mark with an average-diameter of (4.3 mm) at the 8 mm laser mark which becomes the crestal diameter for short implants length 8 mm.

Dental Crown

A dental crown is a ¨cap¨ that is placed on a stump of a tooth or on an implant. The dental crown is a restoration that represents the shape of a natural tooth whose objective is to place it on the previously prepared stump to replace or protect the remaining tooth structure. When is a crown needed? We need to consider a dental crown when a tooth is damaged, fractured, contains little tooth structure, has weak enamel, is quite worn down, when it is necessary to perform cuspal protection after a root canal treatment, when a patient wishes to change the appearance of his tooth and when a crown is placed over an implant as the final restoration. The process of making a dental crown is to shave down the tooth in a specific way to give the required space for the crown to settle. The treatment consists of two appointments: the first appointment is to prepare the tooth, take […]
