At Forever Young Dentistry, we want nothing but the best for our patients because we believe everyone deserves to have a healthy, proud smile. We do this through a few different ways, but perhaps one of the most unique ways that we show you our appreciation is through having superior technology available to you and your family.
A crown, in my mind, is needed when more than half of the biting surface of the tooth has been restored or filled. We know, science shows. That that tooth is less than half of its original strength. Even if the tooth's not broken, I can predict that tooth is at a higher risk for breaking. In that case I would explain the risk to the patient, explain that without a crown, this tooth may break, and at that point we can still probably fix it, but the prognosis isn't going to be as good because there's less tooth to work with. There's also a possibility if it breaks the wrong way, tooth would need a root canal. Maybe you could even lose the tooth. The proactive treatment is less costly over the long run than needing a root canal or replacing the tooth. If the tooth needs to be replaced, if a tooth's already been lost, we would talk about an implant or a bridge or a partial denture.
One of those technologically advanced procedures is placing same-day porcelain crowns by using the Planmeca Fit System. The Planmeca Fit same-day crown system is one of the world’s only systems for creating functional porcelain crowns in just one office visit! Dr. Young has been using this system for a decade and has a great deal of experience in the area! We also offer a great way to replace teeth in the form of dental bridges!
Do you want to spend less time at the dentist’s office and in the dental chair? We know that you live a busy life, and you don’t want to waste time at the dentist’s office when you don’t have to. That is why we offer same-day dental crowns for you to take advantage of at Forever Young Dentistry! In just one appointment, we will place the incredibly functional tooth-colored crown to protect the damaged or decayed tooth that is underneath the crown.
There was a time when dentists widely used metals in dental crowns, and some dentists still use these metals despite how unattractive they can make your smile look. Same-day crowns are not just extremely convenient, but they are also beneficial to your oral health! It’s amazing to think that a superior crown can be created in just one visit to Forever Young Dentistry!
Whether you’re in charge of a family or are a busy professional, you may not have the time to make multiple visits to Forever Young Dentistry to have one procedure done to improve your smile. That is why we decided to offer the convenient Planmeca Fit System same-day crowns, because we want you to be able to have your damaged teeth repaired with a porcelain crown in just one visit.
At other practices, your crown placement will take at least two or three visits, because you’ll have one or two visits for them to examine your mouth and take molds of your teeth and one visit to come back and have your crowns placed. Also, at many practices you’ll have to wait weeks for your crowns to be produced, and you shouldn’t have to wait that long! We care about you and your family at Forever Young Dentistry, and that is evident because we invest in state-of-the-art systems like the Planmeca Fit same-day crown system. We can’t wait for you to see your new, functional, confident smile!
It is never a good idea to leave large gaps in your smile that are created by the loss of teeth. If you leave missing teeth unreplaced, you are asking for an appearance that is less than ideal, as well as oral health that can be affected by the loss of bone in your jaw and the loss of gum tissue.
A great way to replace missing teeth is through a dental bridge. If you have one tooth or even a row of teeth that are missing, an ideal replacement option is a dental bridge. This dental procedure will literally bridge the gap left by lost teeth and give your smile the look it’s been lacking. If you wish to restore your smile through a dental bridge, Dr. Young will be happy to give your smile the look that you deserve!
If you have questions about our Planmeca Fit System same-day crowns or our dental bridges, call us at 586-795-5678 to make an appointment, or use our simple online contact form. We always want the best for you and your family, and that is why we have made available these amazing restorative dentistry options!
