This is one of our most popular services available. With the CEREC technology we have in our office, we can often place these biocompatible restorations in a single visit. It’s made a big difference for many of our customers, and is provided with the highest level of excellence. With this service, we ensure all details are simple, seamless and handled in a timely manner.
In fact, you can even watch as the restoration is being designed and milled from a block of EMAX, our preferred material for such restorations!
The crowns are then chemically bonded to your tooth, restoring your tooth’s original strength.
Whether we’re placing composite or ceramic, always, we use ozone during and after each procedure to support healing and limit the risk of decay recurring below the restoration.
When you work with Drs. Colpitts and O'Brien Wellness Center, you can trust that you’re in great hands.
Composite resin materials can be bonded directly to the remaining enamel structure once the amalgam and any decay has been removed. The two most common materials we use are Admira Fusion and VOCO.
Always, we aim to use the most biologically appropriate materials available for stability, longevity, and aesthetics. This means they’re BPA-free and fluoride-free. However, composites do tend to wear down faster than natural tooth enamel or porcelain restorations.
Because of this, they’re typically recommended for small fillings or teeth toward the front of the mouth, which experience less wear from chewing.
Along with state of the art equipment, we strive to provide the most compassionate care to all of our patients. After all- isn't that the least you should expect during oral surgery?
During your extraction we go the extra mile to ensure you are providing the most sterile environment. Our protocol includes:
Preoperative rinse with ozonated water
Socket cleaning is accomplished with curettes and the laser to ensure the periodontal ligament and granulation tissue are removed.
Socket is disinfected using ozonated water along with the laser. The laser promotes bone formation and healing.
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is placed in the socket after it is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. PRF is used for socket preservation and promotes blood flow and healing in this area.
