Restore Your Smile Today: Exploring CEREC Crowns

Damaged teeth can impact your smile and confidence. Traditional crowns often involve multiple appointments, messy impressions, and temporary restorations. But what if you could get a beautiful, durable crown in just one visit?

At Winter Dental in Arvada, we proudly offer CEREC technology, a revolutionary solution for single-day crowns. Let’s delve into its benefits and answer your questions:

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. It’s a computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system that allows our Arvada dentists to create and place custom-made crowns in a single appointment.

Advantages of CEREC Crowns

  • One-Visit Convenience: Ditch the hassle of multiple appointments. CEREC streamlines the entire process, saving you valuable time and effort.
  • No More Messy Impressions: CEREC utilizes digital scans for highly accurate impressions, eliminating the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional methods.
  • Natural-Looking Aesthetics: CEREC crowns are crafted from high-quality ceramic, closely mimicking the appearance of your natural teeth.
  • Strength and Durability: These crowns are incredibly strong and can last for many years with proper care.
  • Improved oral health: By restoring damaged teeth promptly, CEREC helps prevent further complications and promotes good oral hygiene.

How Long Do CEREC Crowns Last?

With proper care, CEREC crowns can last up to 20 years. To optimize their lifespan:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing.
  • Consider a nightguard if you grind your teeth.
  • Wear a mouthguard during contact sports.

CEREC: A Potential Solution for You

If you’re seeking a faster, more comfortable way to restore your smile, CEREC might be the perfect answer. Schedule a consultation with our dentists to discuss your options and see if CEREC is right for you.

Transform Your Smile Discreetly: Can Invisalign Fix Your Smile

Invisalign® revolutionized the way people approach orthodontic treatment. Gone are the days of metal braces; these clear aligners offer a discreet and comfortable way to achieve your dream smile. While aesthetics are a significant benefit, it’s crucial to understand what issues Invisalign® can effectively address before making a decision.

Consult with Winter Dental’s Experts:

Remember, Dr. Nick and Dr. Stuart at Winter Dental are always happy to discuss your individual needs and recommend the best treatment option. This blog post highlights common concerns treated effectively by Invisalign®:

1. Straightening Crooked Teeth:

If you’re longing for a straighter smile, Invisalign® is an excellent choice. These clear aligners gently nudge your teeth into alignment, offering a visually appealing and confident smile.

2. Correcting Overbites & Underbites:

Invisalign® can effectively address both overbites (where upper teeth protrude over lower teeth) and underbites (where the lower jaw protrudes). By strategically moving teeth, the aligners achieve proper alignment for a more balanced and functional smile.

3. Treating Crossbites:

Crossbites occur when teeth in your upper and lower jaws don’t align properly when your mouth is closed. Invisalign® can effectively move teeth into correct positions, resolving this misalignment and improving oral health.

4. Closing Gaps & Addressing Crowding:

Invisalign® excels at both closing unwanted gaps between teeth and alleviating crowded teeth, where there’s insufficient space for proper alignment. This not only enhances aesthetics but also makes oral hygiene significantly easier.

5. Understanding Invisalign®’s Limitations:

While versatile, Invisalign® has limitations. For severe cases or requiring complex movement (intrusion/extrusion), traditional braces might be more suitable. However, advancements in technology allow Invisalign® to address increasingly complex situations.
