If you have a dental concern, the dentists at Complete Dental Care can help you restore your smile. From dental crowns to dental fillings to dental implants, Complete Dental Care has the tools and expertise to help you fix the look and function of your smile.
Many patients overlook the convenience of digital x-rays. With digital x-rays, you not only decrease your radiation exposure, but you also have a more accurate image of your teeth and dental concern. Dentists use x-rays before most procedures to identify dental problems and formulate a treatment plan. Your restorative dentist will use a digital x-ray before repairing your smile.
One of the most innovative dental procedures we offer at Complete Dental Care is dental implants. Dental implants are a unique way to replace one or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant replaces the entire tooth from its root to its crown. There are three main parts to a dental implant: the post, the abutment, and the attachment. The placement of a dental implant acts as a tooth’s root and is secured into the jawbone. A dental implant post is made of solid titanium, which the body accepts and grows around.
The next part is the abutment, which is the part that attaches the base to the attachment, which can be a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Depending on how many teeth you are missing and your specific needs, Dr. T.J. Scarborough or Dr. Nick Sampalis will help you decide which attachment is best for you. A dental implant only takes a few months to place.
Another advancement Complete Dental Care is proud of is our same-day crowns. At this restorative dentist in Kellogg, Idaho, we offer crown restorations in one day with the help of a CEREC machine. Your dentist uses a digital x-ray to take pictures of your teeth, then that information is transferred to the CEREC machine where the crown is developed. Gone are the days of getting an impression with a gooey material and waiting weeks for the crown to be delivered from a lab.
Additionally, using a same-day crown, you will not have to pay for or use a temporary crown while you wait for your permanent crown to be made.
A similar restoration to same-day crowns is same-day bridges. The state-of-the-art machine, CEREC, can make dental bridges and crowns. A dental bridge looks like multiple crowns are attached. A dental bridge helps to restore a missing tooth. The outer crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to your missing tooth. With a quick exam, x-ray, and placement, you can restore your lost tooth in one day.
Precise Dental Restorations
Complete Dental Care offers accurate and customized dental restoration with the help of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). With these tools, your dentist can make more accurate restorations with dental crowns, bridges, fillings, and more.
If you have had dental decay or small cracks in your teeth, you may have a dental filling. A dental filling is a procedure to remove decay from your teeth and restore the tooth with a composite resin or tooth-colored filling. A dental filling includes a traditional small filling, an inlay, and an onlay. Each type of filling is similar, but different procedures and materials are used to ensure the success of the restoration. For example, for a traditional small filling, first, your dentist will remove the decay to prevent the future spread of the decay and further dental concerns. Next, your dentist will fill the cavity with a composite resin. The resin will harden and restore your tooth to its natural look and function. Your dentist may use porcelain instead of composite resin for an inlay or an onlay covering a larger cavity area for a better seal.
