Similar to your car, even if you take great care of your teeth, you will most likely need to have something fixed at one point or another. That’s where restorative dentistry can help. Working with Dr. Redmond, he can repair your decayed, chipped, cracked, or broken tooth in such a way that it looks like nothing was ever wrong with it in the first place. It’s a good idea to contact him right away if you’re dealing with any of these problems to prevent them from getting worse, because also like your car, your teeth aren’t able to fix themselves!
When it comes to restoring minor cavities, tooth-colored fillings offer the best of everything. They can be quickly placed in just one appointment, and unlike traditional fillings, they’re able to seamlessly blend with a tooth and not stick out in the smile. Better yet, they allow Dr. Redmond to preserve more of a tooth’s natural structure, which will create a stronger restoration that can be trusted to last for many years.
In the past, teeth with large cavities or serious damage would just be extracted, but thankfully, Dr. Redmond isn’t stuck in the past! With a dental crown, he can fully restore even the most compromised tooth to its former glory. These restorations are all personally designed by him to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and they simply slip over a tooth to act like a protective helmet. Plus, unlike almost every other dental practice in the area, we’re able to provide crowns in just one appointment (more on this below).
CEREC is a computer-assisted design/manufacturing system that enables Dr. Redmond to create and place high-quality, custom-made crowns in a single appointment. Not only is this approach dramatically faster compared to the old way of getting a crown, but patients also don’t have to go through a messy dental impression or spend a week with an unreliable temporary while their real crown is being made. Here, you walk in, get your crown in about an hour, and walk out. That’s it!
