CEREC® Single-Visit Crowns. Whether your teeth have decay, unevenness, cracks, fractures, or past root canal therapy, in just a single visit a crown from Sanger & Albee Family Dental will provide you with a lasting oral health solution.
In many offices, creating and placing a dental crown can require multiple appointments over the course of several weeks. At Sanger & Albee Family Dental in Rochester, however, we have the ability to design, create, and place your custom porcelain crown in just one visit using CEREC® technology. CEREC® crowns are durable, strong, and aesthetically-pleasing, adding a natural beauty to your smile.
CEREC® single-visit crowns are perfect for restoring:
Teeth with significant decay
Uneven, fractured, broken, or cracked teeth
Teeth that have had root canal therapy
The beauty of your smile
CEREC® single-visit crowns are milled right here in our office for your convenience. Once in place, your CEREC® crown will restore the function and beauty of your smile. If you are interested in learning more about CEREC® same-day dentistry or your other options for enhancing your smile and oral health, give our office a call soon!
Composite fillings are placed to repair minor flaws in the teeth, including cracks, decay, and fractures. At Sanger & Albee Family Dental in Rochester, we match the color of the composite filling to the color of your existing tooth for the most aesthetically-pleasing results possible. Our dentist can place the filling in just one appointment, during which they will:
Remove decay and damage
Clean the tooth
Fill the tooth with the composite resin material
Shape and polish the filling to match the contours of the tooth
Tooth-colored composite fillings are leaps and bounds ahead of traditional silver fillings of old. If you would like to learn more about composite fillings and restorative dentistry, we invite you to contact us soon.
Our dentist may recommend root canal therapy to restore teeth that have become significantly damaged or decayed. Unlike tooth extraction, which requires completely removing the natural tooth, root canal therapy gives our dentists the opportunity to save the natural tooth while restoring the function and health of your smile. Root canal therapy may be recommended if one or more of the following is present:
An infection or abscess inside the tooth
Decay inside the tooth’s pulp
Root canal therapy can be completed in just two appointments at Sanger & Albee Family Dental in Rochester. Following the therapy, our dentist will place an aesthetically-pleasing dental crown on the tooth for protection and additional function. Please contact our office immediately if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in your teeth or gums. We will do everything in our power to ensure that you return to optimal oral health and function as soon as possible.
Tooth Replacement Options
Dental implants are incredible restorations that can replace one or more missing teeth. At Sanger and Albee Family Dental in Rochester, Dr Albee will quarterback your dental implant treatment and work with an oral surgeon who will surgically place the dental implant into the jawbone. After a period of healing, you will return to our office for the attachment of the dental implant restoration (the visible portion of the implant).
Depending on your needs, this restoration could be:
A complete or partial denture
Dental implants are investment in your oral health and your smile. If you are missing teeth, there is no better option than a dental implant. Give our office a call today to schedule your consultation and learn more about the benefits of implant dentistry!
Dentures and partial dentures are removable appliances designed for those who are missing all or most of their natural teeth, respectively. Our doctors may recommend a denture or partial to:
Replace complete loss of teeth (complete dentures)
Replace partial tooth loss (partials)
Enhance your facial volume
Restore your ability to speak, chew, and eat with ease
Provide you with a complete, functional, and beautiful new smile
For the most effective and secure restoration, dentures can be attached to dental implants that have been surgically placed into the jawbone. Once your dentures are in place, they will give you something to smile about again!
Missing teeth can be replaced by many means. One tooth replacement option we provide at Sanger & Albee Family Dental is the porcelain fixed bridge. Porcelain bridges are non-removable appliances that use the two adjacent teeth to anchor a “pontic” or artificial tooth. This pontic will look and feel like a natural tooth. Once in place, a fixed porcelain bridge can:
Prevent the loss of facial volume
Replace a removable partial denture
Prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
Restore your ability to chew, speak, and digest normally
Enhance the beauty and function of your smile
We can create and place your custom, porcelain bridge over the course of several visits to our office. There is no need to live with missing teeth thanks to modern dentistry and our convenient payment options. If you are missing teeth, contact our office in Rochester today to learn more about porcelain fixed bridges and your other tooth replacement options!
