Benefits of Same Day Dentistry

For individuals suffering from advanced cosmetic degeneration in one or more teeth beyond the help of a simple cleaning or whitening, more drastic measures of improvement may be required. This prognosis can certainly be an unwelcome one, as many of the cosmetic procedures in this category require a significant time commitment on the part of the recipient to give your dental lab an adequate window of time in which to manufacture your crown, bridge, implant, or set of veneers. Same day dentistry is a revolutionary new way of working that allows your dental care provider to evaluate your mouth, collect the relevant data using special equipment, and actually have the restorative implement made in-office that day, allowing them to perform the procedure with no waiting period required.

 

During the appointment, our dentist will clean out any debris. Measurements will be taken and instead of an x-ray you will be put through a much more accurate CT scan, capable of gathering much more data about your mouth and teeth than technology of the past. This information will be fed into a 3D printer, and once the machine is done making your new implant or crown a reality, the rest of the process is a simple as having it placed and cemented to your teeth.

 

Those with active adult lives probably stand to benefit the most from a same day workflow when it comes to enhancing their smiles. A same day procedure eliminates the hassle of endless trips to and from the office and less time wasted in the chair. It also makes the need for temporary measures of protecting exposed, sculpted teeth with non-permanent crowns and retainers obsolete, minimizing the risk of bacteria complicating any part of the process. A same day procedure also requires less long-term planning, which makes it ideal for individuals whose teeth have become lost or damaged unexpectedly, such as in the case of a car accident. A same day restoration will allow you to walk out of the office with teeth just as radiant as they were before.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Pure beauty

Teeth whitening has many benefits, which is why it is quickly becoming one of the most asked for cosmetic treatments in dentistry today. Several bleaching options are available, including in-office and at-home procedures, and patients can choose the type that best meets their needs.

Some of the benefits of teeth bleaching include:

  1. Speed

An in-office whitening procedure can be completed in just about an hour. Professional at-home kits can take longer, but because they use higher concentrations of active ingredients, they are still faster than OTC options.

  1. Effectiveness

The results from professional bleaching treatments are impressive, and many patients experience lightening of up to eight shades or more.

  1. Great results

With a whiter smile, many patients feel more confident. Removing stains from teeth can leave them looking brighter, more youthful, and more attractive.

  1. Safety

Each step of the process is performed under the supervision of a skilled dental professional, so you can be confident that your dental health is guarded throughout the whitening procedure.

  1. Dental health

Not only are whitening treatments safe for your smile, but many patients find they are more committed to good dental habits after a whitening treatment because they want to keep their teeth looking great.
