Same-day crowns (CAD/CAM)
Crowns (or caps) are ceramic restorations that restore both the function, form, and esthetics of a tooth and actually increases the strength of the tooth over a large filling. We use state of the art technology to scan the tooth receiving the crown into a software that generates an exact perfect fit for your tooth. Then a 3-D printer will mill out the crown to custom fit perfectly!
Composite (or tooth-colored) fillings allow dentists to restore areas of decay while maintaining fantastic aesthetics. These fillings also adhere directly to the tooth with a series of adhesives and resins, minimizing the amount of tooth structure removed in the process. We ensure that our adhesive and resin material will create fillings that look great for years.
Root Canal TreatMent
If decay reaches too far into the tooth it may cause what is commonly called a toothache. Nerves and blood vessels are contained within the "pulp", or inside of the tooth, and when bacteria reaches this area it causes an infection in the tooth and pain. Because our teeth are surrounded by bone, antibiotics will not clear this infection and the removal of the pulp tissue is required to alleviate the pain and infection.
Unfortunately a tooth may become so decayed or broken down that it is unable to be saved. Here at Kusek Family & Implant Dentistry we make this process as efficient and comfortable as possible. We utilize the newest and most innovative instruments to ensure any discomfort will be minimized. We also offer nitrous and IV conscious sedation to help ease any anxiety that you may have with this process.
When multiple areas in the mouth are missing teeth it can hinder the way we eat, talk, and the confidence to smile. Partial dentures allow patients to regain eating ability and replace missing teeth in a cost-effective manner. There are multiple different types and styles of partial dentures to help you get the most comfortable feel. Your dentist will be able to help you explain which design is right for you.
If a patient is missing all of their teeth, have many areas of decay, or there are not enough healthy teeth available to support a partial denture, a complete denture is an option. Often times we recommend the placement of implants into the jaw to help retain these dentures and prevent the need of denture adhesive. Replacing all of the teeth allow the dentist, patient, and dental lab to work together to give the patient a new smile that they can be proud of!
