CEREC restorations are milled out of a solid ceramic block and are ready to be bonded in place the same day! If we are fabricating an implant-supported crown, Dr. Karen will design your crown herself in-office, which does require a return visit.
Dr. Karen Davis contributed in the development of CEREC dentistry as a chief beta tester in the technical aspects; she also served as a clinical mentor at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The same team you trust to keep your teeth and gums healthy can also provide an in-office whitening treatment that gives you a sparkling smile in one visit up to eight shades brighter! Learn more at zoomwhitening.com.
Cosmetic dentistry is really now an aspect of modern dentistry which allows us to conservatively restore your smile back to its natural, youthful state of strength and beauty. This process gives us an opportunity to also enhance your appearance by closing gaps, straightening crooked teeth, and restoring worn tooth structure.
An implant is a titanium post that is comfortably placed into the bone, "replacing" the missing root. Whether we are addressing a single-tooth replacement or stabilizing a complete denture, dental implants have helped people of all ages to smile and chew with confidence!
Dr. Karen Davis has earned Fellowship status in The International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) which indicates she has been and will continue to be dedicated in her efforts through education, research and clinical experience.
Whether you have fractured a tooth or have multiple crooked teeth, veneers offer you a chance to improve your smile with a natural-looking solution. Due to their durability and resistance to staining, veneers are becoming popular among patients of all ages. Veneers can come in plastic (composite) or porcelain, and both types are bonded to your tooth surface using resin cement.
The pulp is the soft tissue that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When the pulp is diseased or injured and cannot repair itself, it dies. The most common cause of pulp death is a cracked tooth, usually caused by large silver fillings or a deep cavity. Left without treatment, your tooth most likely over time will develop an abscess and cause damage to the bone around the tooth. When the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result. Without treatment, your tooth may have to be removed.
Most root canals can be completed comfortably in one visit. It is recommended that all teeth that have been restored with endodontic therapy be preserved with a crown to help protect and strengthen for long-term wear.
A maintenance program must be a cooperative effort by the patient, along with the dentist and team to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and reoccurrence of diseases and conditions. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults!
The KEY 3 LASER technology comes from Germany, and is one of the most sophisticated dental lasers in the world. We use the KEY 3 for various procedures, such as removal of early decay, tartar buildup below the gum line, and trimming unhealthy, overgrown tissue. Our laser works quickly and gently, many times requiring no anesthetic! The laser kills germs effectively and promotes rapid healing, which allows us to also treat cold sores at the very early onset.
