Same Day Dentistry by CEREC
Patients who need dental restoration with crowns, inlays, or onlays, can visit our San Francisco same day dentistry expert, Dr. Ben Amini, for same-day treatment instead of waiting weeks and making multiple appointments for results. In addition to making these procedures more convenient and comfortable for patients, same-day dentistry can provide patients with improved appearance and comfort thanks to more precise construction of the restoration involved. Although cutting-edge computer technology is an important element of this option, special training completed by Dr. Amini supports the best possible results for same day dentistry recipients.
Same-day dentistry involves the use of specialized equipment to make 3-D images of the teeth being restored, eliminating the need for traditional dental impressions. This can be particularly beneficial for patients with dental anxiety or gagging reflex problems. Once images have been made, CAD/CAM equipment is used to design the new restoration. Rather than coming back to the office after restorations are manufactured at a separate lab, patients can simply relax in the waiting room as their new restorations are made in the office of our expert in same day dentistry in San Francisco utilizing CEREC technology by Sirona.
Same Day Dentistry San Francisco
Our expert in same day dentistry in San Francisco utilizes CEREC technology by Sirona and begins this process by administering anesthesia to the patient. Imaging equipment makes exact images of the teeth being restored, and the new designs can be refined in terms of color and shape before construction on site. In less than an hour, the new restoration is complete and can be placed in the mouth. After checking the fit, our dentist bonds the new restoration in place with dental adhesive resin. After this single appointment, patients leave with precisely restored teeth that look, feel, and perform naturally.
Patients can help their same-day restorations last longer by caring for them properly, including brushing and flossing every day and visiting our San Francisco same day dentistry expert as often as recommended for routine exams. Avoiding smoking and limiting consumption of very hard or heavily pigmented foods and drinks can also help keep these restorations looking great. To learn more about same-day dental options and their advantages, patients can schedule a consultation with our San Francisco dentist at CitiDent.
Dr. Amini is a certified CAD/CAM faculty at the University of California, UCSF School of Dentistry, teaching this great technology to the next generation of dentists. Dr. Amini is an active member of cerecdoctors.com and the Cerec Academy, the largest CAD/CAM organization in dentistry.
Restorative Dentistry San Francisco
Endodontics is another area of treatment provided by our San Francisco restorative dentistry expert. Used to resolve infections inside of teeth, endodontic therapy eliminates damaged tissue and preserves teeth so that removal can often be avoided. Basic root canal treatment is sufficient for many cases of tooth infection, but root canal surgery may be necessary for certain advanced infections. Endodontic treatment focuses on removal of an infection, filling the tooth with medicated packing material, and sealing the tooth with a filling. A crown is often placed on these teeth for long-term protection as well as cosmetic preservation.
“At CitiDent, you can receive specialty care by our team endodontist and restore your tooth all in one facility to insure you receive an accurate and efficient care in a comfortable setting.” –Dr. Amini
Patients who have lost teeth can visit our experts in restorative dentistry in San Francisco for several tooth replacement options. These include full and partial dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. All of these options restore appearance and the abilities to speak and chew properly, but dental implants also prevent bone resorption in the jaw. Because dental implants are rooted in the jawbone, recipients are also protected from deterioration of facial appearance.
“Dental implants are the most natural replacement for teeth today.” -Dr. Amini
Effective restorations are available at our office for patients who want to regain functionality, comfort, and appearance after suffering from tooth decay or other damage. After any restorative procedure, patients should brush and floss daily and visit our dentist as often as recommended to better preserve results and prevent future problems. At a consultation with Dr. Amini and associates, our dentists in San Francisco, patients can learn more about our restorative dental procedures and their uses.
