CEREC same day crowns

CEREC technology allows Dr. Weisenberger to prepare, design and seat your dental crown in just one visit, removing the need for multiple visits to the office. The CAD/CAM technology allows Dr. Weisenberger to take a digital impression rather than using sticky impression material. The information is instantly recorded into the CEREC software, which Dr. Weisenberger will use to design a custom crown as you wait. The crown is then milled in-office as well as custom stained and glazed to provide the best aesthetic results possible.

Preventative

Cleaning and exam

A cleaning and exam every six months is the best way to help ensure optimal dental health. During your dental cleaning, our registered dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar that you may not be able to remove at home. This reduces your risk of forming gingivitis or periodontal (gum) disease. Measurements will also be taken of the bone around each tooth to catch any signs of gum disease. The hygienist will also polish your teeth, removing stains and leaving your teeth and mouth feeling refreshed.

Dr. Weisenberger will perform your exam and alert you to any problems that may arise. Digital x-rays will be reviewed for cavities, failing restorations, bone loss, cysts or infections in the nerve of teeth. Your oral screen will allow her to note any changes to teeth, restorations or gums. Your oral cancer screening will also be completed at this time.

The best way to catch problems is to identify them before they start. Your cleaning and exam help establish a solid foundation for complete oral health.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease or gum disease is caused by bacteria and calculus forming around the tooth and its bony structures, resulting in loss of bone and the supporting structures. If periodontal disease goes untreated, it can not only cause tooth loss but also is a contributor to heart disease and diabetes. If we note that the bone levels around your teeth are lower than normal, we may suggest a different type of cleaning called scaling and root planing, also referred to as deep cleaning. This cleaning allows us to remove the bacteria and calculus under the gums. With proper maintenance, bone levels can increase and the foundation for a fabulous smile can be restored.

Sealants

Sealants are placed on molars to help prevent decay in the deep grooves on the chewing surfaces of the tooth. Sealants are usually placed when kids are 6 to 12 years old as this is when the adult molars are usually erupting. This non-invasive procedure is a quick and easy way to help kids maintain a cavity-free smile for years to come.

Fluoride

At the end of your cleaning, you will be offered an in- office fluoride treatment. This treatment can reduce your risk of cavities up to 30%. This is a great treatment for everyone, but especially for those who are at a greater risk for developing cavities.

Nutritional Counseling and Cavity Prevention

Each patient will be assessed for their risk of decay. Looking at your dental and medical history we will learn if you are at a higher risk for cavities. We will also discuss foods and drinks that increase your risk for cavities and what changes you can make to lower your risk.

Night Guards

For those suffering from TMD or clenching and grinding, a night guard may be prescribed. Night guards, or occlusal guards, can help relieve jaw pain, tension headaches and even protect your teeth from fractures due to the extreme pressure that can be placed on them. Occlusal guards are custom made for each patient and delivered in office to make sure the fit is correct.


Restorative

Tooth-colored Fillings

Decay and failing restorations can be removed and replaced with composite resin. The composite is matched to the shade of your tooth so that the filling blends in with your dentition. These restorations are a safe, reliable way to aesthetically restore the function of a tooth.

Crowns

When teeth fracture or have large cavities that compromise their structure, function or longevity, a dental crown may be recommended in order to provide support and protection. Crowns are seated over a portion of the existing tooth in order to maintain the tooth’s overall form and functions.

CEREC technology allows Dr. Weisenberger to prepare, design and seat your dental crown in just one visit, removing the need for multiple visits to the office. The CAD/CAM technology allows Dr. Weisenberger to take a digital impression rather than using sticky impression material. The information is instantly recorded into the CEREC software, which Dr. Weisenberger will use to design a custom crown as you wait. The crown is then milled in-office ancustom stained and glazed to provide the best aesthetic results possible.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are perfect for restoring teeth that have leaking restorations or minor fractures. Constructed out of tooth-colored porcelain, inlays and onlays allow your tooth to be restored without removing a healthy tooth structure, making inlays and onlays more conservative than full-coverage crowns.

Implants

Dental implants can restore the function and beauty of your dentition if one or more teeth are missing. Dental implants are the most advanced and natural way to replace teeth. The dental implant is placed in the bone replacing the root of the tooth, and then a dental crown is placed on top. This procedure allows a missing tooth to be replaced without having to involve the surrounding teeth. If you are unhappy with a partial or denture, implants can be a solution to replace the missing teeth or as an anchor under a denture.

Bridges

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may notice changes in your bite or appearance and a tendency for teeth to shift. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth and help restore not only the function of the teeth but the beauty of your smile. Crowns are placed on the teeth (or implants) surrounding the missing tooth. These crowns are adjacent to an artificial tooth that sits in the area of the missing tooth. Bridges are a beautiful way to replace a missing tooth and bring confidence back to your smile.

Root Canals

Sometimes cavities or fractures get too close to the pulp, or nerve, of a tooth, allowing bacteria to enter. When this occurs, the pulp becomes infected, which can lead to a very painful emergency situation. Root canal therapy allows the infected pulp to be removed and the tooth to be saved. After the root canal is completed, the tooth requires a dental crown to protect it from fracturing or becoming reinfected.


Cosmetic procedures

Teeth Whitening

Drinking soda, coffee and wine can often leave teeth looking dull and discolored.

Professional whitening is a great way to remove those unwanted stains and bring back your bright white smile. Dr. Weisenberger offers both in-office as well as take-home whitening kits consisting of your own custom trays and professional-grade whitening gel. In-office whitening with Zoom gives you a brilliant smile in just one visit. Take-home whitening kits allow you to control how much and when you whiten. Perfect for little touch-ups throughout the year.

Bonding

Cosmetic bonding restores teeth that are chipped, discolored or an unwanted size or shape. By using composite resin, a tooth-colored material, Dr. Weisenberger can restore the function and shape of your teeth. The composite is matched to the color of the tooth for the best aesthetic results.

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain layers that are cemented directly onto the front of the tooth to improve the tooth’s shade and color. Veneers allow your smile to be transformed while maintaining healthy tooth structure.

Tooth Colored fillings

Decay and failing restorations can be removed and replaced with composite resin. The composite is matched to the shade of your tooth so that the filling blends in with your dentition. These restorations are a safe, reliable way to aesthetically restore the function of a tooth.

Porcelain Crowns/Bridges

Porcelain crowns are a terrific way to restore a fractured or missing tooth. The porcelain is color matched to the surrounding teeth allowing for great aesthetic results.

CEREC technology allows Dr. Weisenberger to prepare, design and seat your dental crown in just one visit, removing the need for multiple visits to the office. The CAD/CAM technology allows Dr. Weisenberger to take a digital impression rather than using sticky impression material. The information is instantly recorded into the CEREC software, which Dr. Weisenberger will use to design a custom crown as you wait. The crown is then milled in-office and custom stained and glazed to provide the best aesthetic results possible.

White spot removal

For many reasons teeth can develop white spots that don’t blend in even after whitening. These white spots can be lightened with a quick, simple in-office procedure. No drilling required.


Botox

Over time, smiles, frowns and surprises can add years to your face. The muscles responsible for these expressions cause the fine lines and wrinkles we fight to hide.
Botox is a safe approach to diminishing those signs of aging. This non-surgical procedure safely relaxes the facial muscles to give you a rested, youthful appearance. Botox is commonly used to target the deep creases in the forehead, the “crow’s feet” around the eyes and the “elevens” between the eyebrows. It can also be used to address jaw pain associated with TMD.

The entire procedure usually takes 30 minutes. Results can be seen in four to seven days and can last for three to five months. Call today to set up your free consult with Dr. Weisenberger.


Invisalign®

If you would like to discreetly, gently straighten your teeth, Invisalign® may be right for you!

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth nearly invisibly. Invisalign works through a series of smooth, clear plastic aligner trays that gradually straighten your teeth.

Your custom aligners are removable so you can eat, floss, and brush as usual. Invisalign can also correct a number of orthodontic problems, including:

·       Gapped teeth

·       Misaligned teeth

·       Overly crowded teeth

As part of your initial consult, Dr. Megan Weisenberger will create a custom plan to fit your needs and to improve your smile.
