Traditionally, the process of creating a new dental crown or other custom restoration would take multiple appointments. With an in-office dental lab capable of creating same-day crowns designed by the doctor, you can have a high-quality, natural appearing restoration faster than ever before. The treatment process only takes a single appointment, and you’ll walk out with beautifully personalized results.Learn About CEREC®
When a natural tooth is lost, the strength of the bite as a whole is weakened and the surrounding teeth are subject to higher forces. Implants add strength to the bite, prevent shifting, and ease the burden of chewing on the neighboring teeth. Implants can also help restore confidence and chewing efficiency for denture wearers.Learn More About Implants
