Dental crowns made right here in our office. This amazing computerized technology provides you with a beautiful custom made porcelain crown in just one visit. By combining Digital X-Rays and Computer Aided Design and Milling, our practice can produce a permanent crown for you in just one visit! CEREC Crowns were introduced over 30 years ago and we have been improving our techniques with the system ever since. Starting with your digital scan, we are able to cut a perfectly fitting crown to replace your damaged original tooth.
CEREC Crowns offer several advantages over traditional crowns:
We know your smile is important. It's one of the first things everyone notices when you meet someone. A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful - it can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression. Since our lifestyles and the aging process can stain and darken our teeth, we have searched for processes and procedures proven to lighten and brighten our patient's smiles. We have several options for brightening your smile – ask us what we recommend for you!
Many of our patients have concerns about anesthesia, drilling, needles and other issues they may have experienced in visits to other dentists. We have a new technique to use with many of our patients, where their x-rays show that their cavities are shallow. We are able to use a relatively new treatment where we use a mini-blaster to remove the decayed portion of the tooth and retain most of the tooth structure. The procedure uses no needles or drills and the patient generally does not feel any pain. The decayed tooth is much softer than your healthy tooth and is easily removed with a blast (stream) of air and a very fine powder. After the tooth is prepared, we are able to fill the cleaned cavity with composite filling material or other material, as needed.
Recognizing the sensitivity that some of our patients may have to injectable or oral anesthesia, we offer Nitrous Oxide as an anxiety reducer.
Frequently called "laughing gas" nirtous oxide in small, controlled quantities, can be an effective Inhalation Anesthetic. As a single agent, it has impressive safety and is excellent for providing minimal and moderate sedation for apprehensive dental patients.
A tremendous benefit of Nitrous Sedation is that the patient leaves cleared with no trace of Nitrous in their system and is able to drive to and from the dental appointment. There is no groggy or sedated feeling after a procedure using Nitrous Sedation.
Dental implants are among the most successful procedures in dentistry. While there is no guarantee an implant procedure will be successful, studies have shown a five-year success rate of 95% for lower jaw implants and 90% for upper jaw implants. Because of this high success rate, we have been very successful with cosmetic and functional restorations that replace tooth loss due to decay, root canal treatment failure, gum disease, and even excessive tooth wear and tear.
Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss. They are frequently used in combination with other dental procedures such as crown replacement, support for dental bridges, and replacement of multiple missing teeth. As is typical of any dental procedure, talk with our dentists to determine if Implant Dentistry and Implant Crowns or Bridges are an appropriate choice for your particular situation.
Many of our patients have beautiful teeth and we work to keep them that way. First, every patient is carefully evaluated to assure the best degree of correction and treatment. By offering orthodontics within our practice, you can make your othro appointment right here with the same dental family you use for your cleanings and regular dental work.
Frequently, some of our patients may have a minor tooth or bite misalignment. We evaluate the needs of the patient, the degree of correction difficulty, and the requirements of the patient. Some of our patients we refer to an orthodontic specialist, others are candidates for treatment by our office.
For many of our in office orthodontic cases, we are able to use the Invisalign Treatment System. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners changed about every two weeks. The aligners are designed to gently move your bite back into shape. Working from a custom molded set of aligners, Invisalign's clear aligners slowly move your teeth into the bite you have always wanted. If you think you are a candidate for Invisalign, please speak to your dentist for an evaluation.
Our team at The Dentists at North Cypress is committed to helping all our patients feel comfortable and confident in their dental health and smiles. We encourage prevention with every visit and every patient who visits our office is educated on basic and advanced oral hygiene, receives oral cancer screenings, and important information about the treatment they need or want.
