CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
Dental crowns repair damaged or broken teeth that are otherwise healthy. We use CEREC technology to provide same-day dental crown procedures, effectively addressing chipped and damaged teeth in a single visit! Dr. Applegate and his team craft same-day dental crowns using durable, tooth-colored materials, including:
- All Porcelain
- All Ceramic
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Our state-of-the-art dental filling material matches the color of your teeth perfectly, eliminating the need for unsightly metal fillings. At Applegate Dentistry, we prioritize your safety and use amalgam-free materials for each dental filling.
Dental Inlays & Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays restore mildly or moderately decayed teeth, especially those in the mouth's posterior region. They are also suitable for fractured teeth that don't require a full dental crown. Like all our restorations, inlays and onlays are meticulously shade-matched to seamlessly blend with your natural smile.
Dental bonding is an excellent method for enhancing the appearance and strength of damaged or missing parts of a tooth. We use expertly shade-matched, tooth-colored materials to address issues such as chips or gaps. In many cases, patients find that numbing or tooth adjustments are unnecessary.
Dental bridges offer an affordable and common solution for replacing a missing tooth. These bridges connect the adjacent teeth to the gap using a fused "bridge" known as a pontic, which serves as a false tooth. At Applegate Dentistry, we offer traditional bridges and those securely affixed using dental implants.
Dr. Applegate's extensive training and experience in implant dentistry enable him to replace lost or missing teeth with state-of-the-art dental implants. These implants closely resemble natural teeth in appearance, feel, and function. The implant consists of a titanium post ("root") permanently anchored to your jawbone. A solid dental crown, known as a restoration, is placed just below the gumline to complete the dental implant procedure, providing a natural look and function.
Our dental implant systems include:
- Single Dental Implants
- Implant-retained overdentures (similar to All-on-4®)
- Hybrid Dental Implants
Whether you need a complete set of dentures or partial dentures, our custom-crafted solutions are cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing. We offer denture options that seamlessly fit your unique needs, whether you're missing a few teeth or require a complete set.
