Looking For Cosmetic Dentistry in Edmonton?
Veneers are a simple way for our patients to fix crooked, stained or chipped teeth. Our west Edmonton dental clinic offers both porcelain veneers and resin veneers.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells that are attached to the front of teeth. Veneers are often only placed on front( anterior) teeth, sometimes on bicuspids and rarely on molars. Depending on why veneers are being placed depends on how many one would have done.
Are you missing a tooth? When a decayed or damaged tooth is removed, both the visible part of the tooth (crown) and the root are lost. A dental crown is the closest you can get to healthy, natural looking teeth.
Implant Crown Procedure
An implant crown is basically a new tooth. During the dental implant procedure, a titanium post is placed in the jawbone with the expectation it will fuse to your natural bone. This implant becomes the new root for your tooth, and with a connector and crown, a brand new tooth is created. Your implant crown will be custom matched to your natural teeth, creating a new, confident smile.
CEREC Same Day Crowns in Edmonton
Do you cringe when someone says the word “crown”? Do you think of gooey impressions, multiple appointments and just the overall inconvenience of it? Technology now exists that allows patients to go from diagnosis to having a dental crown in place all in the same day. In fact, a CEREC crown only takes a few hours from start to finish.
What is the CEREC Crown Procedure?
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) uses a high-tech device that allows our Edmonton dental office to create your crown in just one visit. This device uses digital mapping technology to chart the inside of your mouth and take an image of your tooth. A crown is then created out of a high-grade ceramic block and attached to your damaged tooth.
Is a CEREC Crown Long-Lasting?
When compared to a conventional crown, the CEREC same day crown is just as durable, lasting 10-15 years. Our computer-aided technology ensures that each crown is made with a very high degree of accuracy. Quick fabrication doesn’t mean a lower quality product. With twice daily brushing and semi-annual dental exams, CEREC crowns will last for years, giving our clients the beautiful smile they desire.
What Is the Cost of a CEREC Dental Crown?
A full CEREC crown ranges from $1200-1500 whereas an implant crown ranges between $1800 and $2500.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you’re not alone. Statistics show that 69 percent of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost at least one tooth through an accident, decay, gum disease or a failed root canal. Fortunately, you have multiple options for replacing these missing teeth, including dental bridges.
Dental Bridge vs Implants?
A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. It extends across a section of your jaw that has no teeth. There are a few different types of bridges including; traditional bridges, implant bridges and resin-bonded bridges. Your dentist will recommend the most appropriate type depending on the location of the missing tooth/teeth and the condition of your mouth.
Unlike dental implants, a dental bridge does not require surgery. Bridges are generally more affordable that crown implants and are quicker to get.
Partial and Complete Dentures in Edmonton
Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. If disease, poor oral health or an accident has left you with only a few healthy teeth or none at all, your dentist may suggest dentures.
What Are Partial and Complete Dentures?
Partial dentures are used when teeth are not strong enough for a bridge or when more than just a few teeth are missing. They are made up of one or more artificial teeth, held in place by clasps around your natural teeth. Partial dentures are removable for easy cleaning at night.
Complete dentures are what most people refer to as “false teeth.” They are held in place by suction, but are removable for cleaning. Complete dentures can cause gum tenderness when first getting used to.
