Bridges and Same-Day Crowns
At Wellington Dental, our focus is on helping you maintain a healthy smile by providing you with preventive services like cleanings and exams. However, even if you are conscientious about your oral health, you may experience a problem.
Not all dental damage or tooth loss is related to neglect; you may crack a tooth on a hard candy, or you may lose a tooth in an accident. In any event, we need to address the problem as soon as possible to avoid further damage and discomfort.
State-of-the-Art Same-Day Crowns
A dental crown is a versatile restoration that protects a tooth and restores its function. But one of the drawbacks to traditional crowns has always been that it is a time-consuming process that requires multiple visits to the dentist.
Our doctors understand that your time is valuable, so we have found a way to streamline your visits! We use specialized E4D same-day crown technology to produce beautiful, durable esthetic crowns in just one visit to our Wellington, OH dental office.
Instead of messy impression paste, we use a digital scanner to take an impression of your teeth. This image is used to build a virtual representation of your new crown. This information is sent to a machine in our office where your custom crown is milled from a small block of pure porcelain.
During the process, we invite you to kick back and relax with a warm blanket in our comfy massage chair and listen to music or watch your favorite TV show.
Same-day crowns eliminate the need for multiple visits and the inconvenience of dealing with temporary crowns; now you can leave our office with your new esthetic crown after just one visit!
Tooth Replacement with a Fixed Dental Bridge
A lost tooth needs to be replaced to restore appearance and function. One option we offer is dental bridges that provide an esthetic solution and act as a placeholder for the missing tooth.
A bridge is typically made up of three pieces, consisting of an artificial tooth (called a pontic) suspended by a crown on either side. The crowns are then attached to the teeth adjacent to the empty space.
A dental bridge is an esthetic solution because it restores your appearance, but it also acts as a placeholder to keep adjacent teeth from drifting into the empty space.
In the case of a dental bridge, we will need to send your case to a dental lab where your bridge is custom-crafted according to our specifications. The process usually takes about a week to complete.
