If you've thought about replacing a missing tooth with a restoration, you might be hesitant about dentures, which can be inconvenient, or bridges, which need repair or replacement every few years. Your Peachtree City family dentist is happy to offer dental implants as a long lasting, comfortable, and low maintenance way to fill in gaps from missing teeth! Dental implants are completely anchored in place thanks to the metal post that is implanted in the space where your tooth once was. Over time, the jawbone fuses with this metal post, making it as stable as a natural tooth. Once the porcelain crown is attached, your implant will be complete and virtually impossible to distinguish from a natural tooth.
CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a revolutionary way to create high-quality crowns in a fraction of the time. Your Peachtree City general dentist uses a digital scanner to take several pictures of the tooth that needs a crown; these images will be sent to a computer program where your dentist can design the shape and size of the crown. That information is then sent to the CEREC machine in our office to mill out a ceramic crown that will fit perfectly.
