What are teeth in a day dental implants?

Drs. Jay M. Lerner and Gerard J. Lemongello describes teeth in a day dental implants, or “same day dental implants,” as a way of replacing an entire arch of missing teeth in a single appointment. It starts with the placement of dental implants, which are titanium posts inserted into the jaw bone. These use the bone as their foundation and stabilization. After the implants are placed, a special denture is fabricated beforehand and snaps into place with the dental implants. Patients can achieve the entire process in just one visit, ensuring they have a fast and straightforward transformation with teeth in a day dental implants.

Who is a candidate?

Any patient who is missing all of the teeth within the dental arch and wants to replace them with a long-lasting, sturdy solution is welcome to book an appointment with the team of professionals in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. During this consultation appointment, the team will provide a thorough evaluation of the patient’s smile, including x-rays to check for sufficient bone. The bone of the jaw must be available and ready for the placement of implants, as this is what holds the implants and ensures the procedure is successful.

How Dental Bonding can Repair the Appearance and Function of your Smile!

General Dentistry Palm Beach Gardens, FL

General Dentistry Palm Beach Gardens, FLChips, cracks, and gaps between the teeth can have a negative impact on the smile’s overall appearance. If you live in or around the area of Palm Beach Gardens, FL and are interested in cosmetic improvements for the smile, the team of Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry encourage you to book a consultation visit with our staff and discuss your options. For many patients, composite resin bonding provides many advantages.

Understanding cosmetic resin bonding

Composite resin bonding, or “dental bonding,” is the use of a special material to reshape a tooth or disguise imperfections. Composite resin bonding is used for:

  • Covering chips and cracks
  • Reshaping an unusually shaped tooth
  • Covering teeth that are misaligned
  • Filling a tooth that has an area of decay
  • Disguising small gaps between the teeth

Many patients love the idea of having composite resin bonding treatments on their smile. It can cover up problems areas in just one appointment and provide lasting results. It is a faster and more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, which are thin ceramic facings custom made to cover the same issues. Composite resin bonding is subjected to staining and discoloration over time, but this often doesn’t keep patients from considering it as an option, even while they are considering porcelain veneers in the long run. At Lerner and Lemongello, our dentists will assess a patient for a cosmetic restoration, and then discuss with them the pros and cons of each. Educating patients in this manner is the best way to ensure they have the information they need to make a knowledgeable decision for their specific needs.

Drs. Lerner and Lemongello describe how Dental Crowns are Used and Fabricated

Dental Crowns Palm Beach Gardens FL

Dental Crowns Palm Beach Gardens FL Dental crowns are one of many dental restorations that are used by the professionals at Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Also known as dental “caps,” dental crowns can be fabricated specifically for a patient to match the color, shape, and size of their existing teeth. There are many situations in which a patient may consider placing dental crowns.

Dental crowns can be used to:

  • Cover a dental implant to function as a natural tooth once did
  • Provide protection for a tooth that has a large filling or has undergone endodontic therapy
  • Reshape a tooth and protect it if it has been affected by a large crack or chip
  • Disguise a tooth that has permanent discoloration that cannot be improved with bleaching

How is a dental crown made?

Dental crowns are custom-made for patients, which requires the dentist to have a special knack for artistry. First, patients are assessed during a consultation appointment to determine fi they can benefit from a dental crown. Second, the tooth requiring the crown is properly prepared with the removal of a substantial portion of enamel. Third, impressions are taken of the natural tooth to create a reverse mold. Fourth, the impressions are mailed to a dental laboratory so a ceramist can fabricate the restoration based on the dentist’s specific instructions for color and size. Fifth, patients return back to the office in approximately one week when the dental crown is complete to have it bonded in place. The entire process can take approximately two weeks or less but provides a restoration that can last a decade or longer!

How to Restore the Smile with Porcelain Dental Restorations

Porcelain Veneers Palm Beach Gardens FL

Porcelain Veneers Palm Beach Gardens FLWhen imperfections are affecting the appearance of the smile, patients often turn to cosmetic dentistry procedures to make a difference. Drs. Jay M. Lerner and Gerard J. Lemongello of the Palm Beach Gardens, FL area are here to help, and can provide patients with the solutions they need to enhance the look of their teeth, including porcelain veneers.

What are porcelain veneers?

Also known as dental veneers, porcelain veneers are a wonderful solution for covering imperfections that may be detracting from an otherwise beautiful smile! These restorations are custom-made for patients and are designed to bond over the front of the anterior teeth to completely disguise problem areas. Teeth that are gapped, broken, chipped, misaligned, or even permanently stained may benefit from the placement of porcelain veneers with the team at Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry.

Why choose porcelain veneers?

There are several advantages for patients who choose porcelain veneers to enhance their natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are:

  • Attractive
  • Natural-looking
  • Custom-fabricated
  • Affordable
  • Long-lasting

What is the process of obtaining porcelain veneers?

Most patients who are candidates for porcelain veneers will decide to move forward with this particular method of treatment for the anterior teeth that have imperfections present. When patients have chosen this cosmetic solution, they need to undergo preparations of the natural teeth. This includes filing down some of the natural tooth enamel from the front. Once completed, impressions are done and sent off to a dental ceramic who fabricates the final restoration for bonding into place approximately one to two weeks later. Porcelain veneers are known for lasting approximately ten years or longer when patients take good care of them, ensuring a decade or more of beautiful smiles! Porcelain veneers can be replaced as necessary by our team.

Ready to discuss the benefits of veneers?

Lemongello and consult with a professional regarding this and many other restorative services available at the practice.

Comparing Lumineers to Traditional Porcelain Veneers

Lumineers Palm Beach Gardens FL

Lumineers Palm Beach Gardens FLAt Lerner and Lemongello in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, we are committed to offering patients affordable and effective solutions for enhancing the appearance of the smile. Many of our patients are proper candidates for veneers. We offer two varieties of veneers in our practice, including traditional veneers and more conservative Lumineers.

Lumineers vs. Traditional Veneers

Patients who have imperfections on the front of the teeth may find that cosmetic facings such as porcelain veneers may be a great choice for enhancing the look of the smile. However, there are two methods of treatment for patients to think about, including traditional porcelain veneers and a thinner alternative called Lumineers. While both of these restorations are made of quality ceramics and fabricated to match the natural teeth, Lumineers has one small advantage. Lumineers are incredibly thin, and do not require the teeth to be prepared beforehand. This means that they are reversible. Traditional porcelain veneers require patients to remove a thin portion of the tooth enamel from the tooth to reduce the likelihood of bulkiness when the veneers are bonded in place. This means that once patients make the decision to place veneers, they will always have to have them in place to cover the natural tooth. However, with Lumineers, patients may choose to have them removed in the future if they choose to do so. This offers more flexibility. However, the cost of Lumineers is more than that of porcelain veneers, so patients need to compare their options closely to make the right choice for their smile.

Curious about Lumineers or traditional veneers?

Which one is right for you? Connect with the team of Lerner and Lemongello in Palm Beach Gardens, FL to discuss your options and decide which treatment you may want to move forward with exploring. Drs. Jay M. Lerner and Gerard J. Lemongello are dedicated to helping patients enhance the appearance of their smile in the most conservative manner.
