CEREC Dental Crowns
CEREC crowns are constructed from a block of solid resin or ceramic materials. With CEREC Dental Crowns, our doctors can create a full functional, naturally looking crown in our office during a just single visit!
Previously, patients would need to schedule an initial consultation where an impression would be taken of their teeth, and a temporary crown put into place. Patients would then need to wait several weeks for their dental crown to arrive at our office from the lab. Now one visit is all it takes for patients to enjoy a beautiful, fully functional smile.
CEREC Dental Crown use computer imaging technology to construct a detailed model of the patient's tooth that needs a crown placement and the surrounding teeth, as well. Thanks to CAD software that works with this system, our doctors can custom design a patient's crown while examining the mouth to make sure the color matches exactly with the rest of a patient's teeth. And since CEREC Dental Crowns are made from a single block of material, they are considerably stronger than most types of traditional crowns.
Dental implants are a conservative and long term option for replacing missing teeth. Current technology has created software that allows for computer guided placement of implants, which ensures precise and successful treatment. The implant surgery and crown placement are done by the doctors at Burlingame Dental Arts so you don't have to go multiple places to get your treatment completed. The 3-D computer imaging and CEREC technology allows full control of all aspects of the process, from the surgery to the final crown placed on the implant.
Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep Apnea appliances also known as Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for many patients with snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health. Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway. Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. If you and your doctor decide that oral appliance therapy is the best treatment option for you, then your doctor will write a prescription for you to receive a custom-made oral appliance. Burlingame Dental Arts can provide you with a sleep apnea appliance and will recommend the oral appliance that is best for you. Oral appliance therapy is covered by many medical insurance plans.
