If your teeth have damage and decay beyond repair with your typical dental filling, reconstructive dentistry is probably your next step in restoring the health and function of your teeth. Unfortunately, many patients believe their treatment will take weeks or months to accomplish. That is not the case. Thanks to our advanced dental technology, we can complete most reconstructive dentistry cases in one day.
What is Reconstructive Dentistry?
Reconstructive dentistry is rebuilding or replacing teeth so that they can not only look more aesthetic but function better and improve their health. Patients who have suffered from tooth decay, broken or worn teeth can usually benefit from reconstructive dentistry. We also recommend it to patients with missing teeth or patients who need to have teeth extracted.
Dr. Polley’s ultimate goal with your reconstructive dentistry treatment is to provide you with a smile that looks and feels natural and healthy once again. To accomplish this, he usually uses a combination of treatments depending on your needs. These treatments can include dental crowns, inlays, onlays, dental bridges, dental implants, and dental veneers.
The Power of CEREC®
CEREC® or Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic is an advanced dental technology that mills metal-free and tooth-colored restorations right here in our Las Vegas dental office. Instead of sending your impressions to a dental lab and waiting several weeks for the permanent restoration to return, we can create your restorations the same day as your appointment.
With CEREC®, we’re able to create custom dental crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and even veneers for your smile. The computer program allows us to customize every aspect from the color of the restoration to the shape and size. The restoration you receive from the CEREC® is the same amazing quality you would receive from the dental lab. The only difference is that you don’t have to wait for weeks to achieve the results.
The only type of reconstructive dentistry procedure we wouldn’t be able to provide you the same-day is a dental implants procedure for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants require several months of healing before the placement of the permanent restoration. However, once that day does come, CEREC® prevents you from having to wear a temporary set longer than you need to because we can create your restoration the same day as your appointment.
