But what if we could improve your smile in a day? With same day dentistry, we can provide quality restorations and preventive treatments in a single day.

Common Questions About Same Day Dentistry in Rochester, MN

Question: How does CEREC work?

Answer: With CEREC, we will prepare your teeth to receive a dental crown. Afterward, we will gather digital images of your tooth with an intraoral camera. Using the images, a model of your tooth will be created and a restoration designed. We upload these materials to the CEREC machine, which fabricates your new restoration from a solid block of lifelike ceramic. We can then place the tooth, all in a single day.

Question: Can bonding be completed in a day?

Answer: Yes. Dental bonding involves using the same material we use for white fillings. We gently etch the surface of the tooth to ensure the bonding material better adheres to the tooth. We apply multiple layers. We begin sculpting the tooth as it cures under a special light. Once the curing is complete we polish the tooth for a more natural appearance.

Question: How long do dental cleanings take?

Answer: A preventive treatment that can reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay, a cleaning can be performed in a matter of minutes, improving the health and appearance of your smile.

Question: Do you offer free cosmetic consultations?

Answer: We do. If you have smile issues that hurt the beauty of your teeth, then schedule a cosmetic consultation today. The consultation can be completed in one visit and allow the dentist to recommend the most appropriate treatment options.
