Teeth restoration is a necessary process that helps to keep your oral health strong and protected for years to come. At Renaissance Dental Care, Dr. John Stockdale can perform many different procedures, including providing CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. But what exactly does this acronym mean, and how can it benefit you? Let's take a look into this topic to help you figure out what is happening. 

What is This Substance? 

This unique medical technology was invented recently to help improve oral health and dental appearance. It stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This process uses a strong ceramic material that matches the natural color of your teeth to repair cracks, breaks, and more. 

It starts by using Computer-Aided Design or CAD technology that uses pictures based on your damaged tooth to restore your tooth. Taking no more than one hour from beginning to end, this restoration method is becoming a standard option for many people throughout California. 

What are the Benefits of a Rancho Cucamonga, CA CEREC Treatment? 

If you're interested in this treatment option, it is vital to understand its many benefits. Just a few reasons why dentists use this process include:

  • Minimal Visitation Needs – Unlike many restoration methods, this option requires just one visit, meaning you can get in and out without a lot of wasted time. 
  • Increased Accuracy – The unique CAD-assisted design method helps to produce a very accurate restoration process for your dental needs. 
  • Improved Natural Appearance – This restoration method uses natural-looking filling materials that look as close to your regular tooth as possible. 
  • Long-Lasting Results – This restoration should last many years without any significant maintenance, providing you with more robust overall oral health. 

These benefits make this care option a valuable option for many people. For example, if you want a long-lasting restoration that won't adversely affect your aesthetic appearance, you should seriously consider this treatment method.

Those in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, looking to replace the gaps left in their mouth from missing teeth may want to consider looking into getting dental implants. However, before going to the dentist and getting dental implants, it is vital to learn the difference between the implants, dentures, and All on 4. Making the best decision depends upon knowing the difference between all of your options. Those with questions about the different dental prosthetics should call to schedule an appointment with Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care. 

Dentures

Dentures are removable, replacements for missing teeth. Complete dentures are used when most teeth are missing and generally ready for placement about eight to 12 weeks after removing the teeth. Partial dentures are still removable and only consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base and used when one or more of the mouth’s natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. 

Dental Implants

Dental implants differ from dentures as they are a more permanent solution to missing teeth. The dental implant is surgically secured into the jawbone and fuses to the bone over a few months. Then, a crown is secured over the implant to serve as the replacement tooth, which appears like a natural-looking tooth. Your Rancho Cucamonga, CA dentist, can help explain how the dental implant process works.  

All On 4

All on 4 is a hybrid denture that is mounted on the jaw using four implants. This type of tooth replacement treatment can replace both the upper and lower arches. This treatment is also permanent and can only be removed by a dentist. 

When looking to replace your teeth or fill in the gaps in your mouth, learning about the different dental prosthetics available can help you decide which option to get. Those considering dental implants in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, should speak with Dr. Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care. Call (909) 987-0040 today to schedule your appointment.

Tags: Partial Crowns  

With restorative dentistry, tooth damage doesn't always have to result in tooth extraction. Your dentist at Renaissance Dental Care, Dr. John Stockdale, will help restore your tooth damage with full dental crowns, partial dental crowns, or CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

What Are Partial Crowns?

Dental restorations such as partial crowns, full crowns, and CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, ensure that you won't lose your teeth to damage. Partial crowns help strengthen your teeth following mild to moderate damage. A partial dental crown is a great option for dental damage that's beyond a simple tooth filling but doesn't require a full crown.

Inlays and Onlays are partial crown types made to fit into your natural teeth perfectly. Treatment for your underlying dental problems such as tooth decay comes first before your partial crowns installation.

The Difference Between Inlays and Onlays

The difference between inlays and Onlays resides in where they are applied and the degree of dental damage they can correct. Inlays lie within your tooth cusps while Onlays extend further to cover multiple cusps.

Despite this difference, Inlays and Onlays are pretty similar. Inlays and Onlays comprise of the same materials and help reinforce weak teeth. The installation process for Inlays and Onlays is also the same. This process begins with a dental consultation where your dentist determines what type of tooth restoration will work best for you. Tinting your dental restorations such as partial crowns ensures they are the perfect color and blend right in with your smile.

Types of Partial Crowns

Your partial dental crowns may be composed of:

  • Composite Resin - Composite resin looks natural but may also be prone to damage and staining
  • Porcelain - Porcelain resists staining and looks natural. Porcelain partial crowns are also durable

A visit to Dr. Stockdale, your dentist at Renaissance Dental Care, will determine which dental restoration such as full dental crowns, partial dental crowns, and CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is best for you. Call (909) 987-0040 to schedule your dental visit today.

Dr. John Stockdale of Renaissance Dental Care is here to help when you need dental implants in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Dental implants can completely replace missing teeth to keep your smile beautiful and your mouth healthy! Keep reading about the benefits of this method of tooth replacement, and call us if you have missing teeth.

Implants are strong

Dental implants are made from a screw-like titanium post that is implanted in your jaw bone with minor surgery. You then heal for a period of weeks while a process called osseointegration takes place. Your jaw bone heals around and fuses to the implant, giving it strength. A ceramic crown sits on top of the implant to replace the tooth. Together they are a strong and beautiful tooth replacement.

Implants keep your mouth healthy

When you have a missing tooth it doesn't just leave an unsightly gap in your smile, it can cause problems with chewing and speaking. If you don't replace missing teeth, over time other teeth in the area will shift. This can change your bite and damage your other teeth, and you'll need more dental work. Invest in dental implants now for a long-lasting solution that keeps your whole mouth healthy.

Implants match your smile beautifully

During the initial healing period, you may wear a temporary tooth cap. This may not match your smile perfectly but is only temporary while you heal. Once the implant has healed, your permanent crown is placed at a final appointment. This has been custom-made to match your smile and looks beautiful.

Easy to care for

When you have dental implants you should maintain a great oral hygiene routine at home and schedule regular dental visits, but there is no special care required to keep implants looking great. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Schedule professional teeth cleaning appointments twice a year so you have regular exams, too. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist will recommend wearing a nightguard to protect the crown from damage.

Dr. John Stockdale of Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, takes pride in providing excellent dental care for the whole family. Everyone must see a dentist this year for their oral and overall health. Regular teeth cleaning and exam appointments twice a year help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Regular cleanings and checkups are essential for staying on top of your oral health. When you visit your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist twice a year, you are investing in your smile for a lifetime. When a tooth only has a little bit of decay, it can be saved with a small filling that won't compromise the strength of the tooth. If a tooth has a lot of decay you could need more involved and more expensive dental work like root canals and tooth replacements. Even a larger filling can compromise the strength of the tooth and lead to other problems. Keeping up with regular appointments actually means less time and money spent at the dentist overall.

At a tooth cleaning appointment, all plaque and tartar are removed from the surfaces of your teeth. Plaque is sticky bacteria that builds upon the surfaces of teeth. If it is not removed by regular brushing, it hardens and forms into tartar, which cannot be brushed away. The bacteria in plaque and tartar can cause gum disease because it irritates the gums and causes them to pull away from the teeth. You should also be examined twice a year for gum disease because it's possible to develop it without ever having obvious symptoms.

Your teeth are also flossed and thoroughly examined at a checkup. Your dentist can identify any problem areas in your mouth for you to adjust your hygiene routine for the best results. Another important part of your checkup is oral cancer screening. Your dentist examines the tissues in your mouth and throat for any early signs of cancer.

Renaissance Dental Care is dedicated to keeping your whole family in great oral health. Make sure you see Dr. John Stockdale this year for a cleaning and exam! Contact us for an appointment in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, at (909) 987-0040.
