Frequently Asked Questions About Same-Day Dentistry in Rochester, MN

Question: When do I need restoration?

Answer: We often recommend a dental crown if a tooth becomes broken or develops a severe cavity. They can also be used to restore teeth following a root canal procedure or replace lost teeth by topping dental implants and anchoring dental bridges into place. A veneer is placed over the front of a tooth in order to address various cosmetic issues, including discoloration or damage.

Question: Can I receive a crown in one-visit?

Answer: Yes. We use CEREC technology to create and place a porcelain crown in just one visit. Our crowns are deigned to withstand powerful bite forces and offer a lifelike, metal-free appearance.

Question: How long does dental bonding take?

Answer: Another example of a same day treatment is dental bonding. Using the same material as a dental filling, we buildup lost tooth structure following an accident. We can shade the material to ensure your repaired tooth looks completely natural.

Question: What does veneer placement involve?

Answer: Placing a veneer begins with tooth reparation. We remove a small amount of structure from teeth receiving a restoration. We then take digital impressions using intraoral cameras. After the veneer is designed, the restoration is crafted from a solid block of ceramic with the CEREC machine. We then place the veneer with a powerful adhesive in the same visit.
