CROWNS

Crowns cover and restore a tooth to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth that has a large filling when there isn’t enough healthy tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge or removable partial denture, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to restore teeth that are discolored, badly shaped, or severely crooked. It’s also used to cover a dental implant.

SINGLE APPOINTMENT CROWNS

If you have ever had the crown procedure performed on one or more of your teeth then chances are that you went to your dentist for the initial crown preparation appointment, during which your tooth was numbed, the work was performed on your tooth, an impression was made, and a temporary crown was made. You then went back to your dentist for a second appointment in about 3 weeks to receive your permanent crown. During that 3 week period, you had to be very careful about eating on and around your temporary crown, and if you were really unlucky, your temporary crown may have fallen off causing sensitivity and inconvenience until you could see your dentist to have it put back on. Our office is one of only a handful in the Golden Triangle area that can make your permanent, all porcelain crown in a single appointment utilizing the E4D/Planscan System. No second appointment. No temporary crown. Imagine not having to have the same tooth numbed a second time! You can eat whatever you want just hours after the appointment, instead of eating a restricted diet for 3 or more weeks. The quality of the crown is the same or even better than that of a traditional crown made at a dental laboratory. Dr. Ferguson and Mary Higgins, lead dental assistant, have been extensively trained at the D4D institute in Dallas, Texas, to utilize this amazing technology and have already performed hundreds of cases with tremendous success. If a crown is part of your treatment plan, Dr. Ferguson will be happy to determine if an E4D/Planscan System single appointment crown is right for you.

COMPOSITE FILLINGS

Composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-size restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when preparing the tooth for a composite filling, and this may result in a smaller filling than an amalgam (metal) filling.

VENEERS

A veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature’s mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile. There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped, or crooked. Veneers are thin, custom made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials such as porcelain, designed to cover the front side of teeth. We will be happy to discuss whether veneers may be a good option for you.

ZOOM WHITENING

ZOOM is the in-office whitening system that our office uses and is the quickest and most powerful way to whiten your teeth. During the ZOOM appointment, bleaching material is applied to your teeth in either three or four 15 minute sessions. This bleaching material is activated by our ZOOM light during these sessions. The appointment lasts about two hours. As part of this treatment, our office makes you custom take-home bleaching trays for future use with our at-home bleaching system so your teeth keep the beautiful, white shade that they achieve during the ZOOM appointment.

AT-HOME WHITENING / CUSTOM BLEACHING TRAYS

Another effective method of whitening is with our custom bleaching trays.  We begin by making molds of your teeth from which we make custom trays and you simply apply the bleaching material yourself in the comfort of your home.  You can bleach when it is convenient to you, and you can control the rate at which your teeth whiten.  When you run out of bleach, just come by our office and get more.

AT-HOME WHITENING / SHEERWHITE SYSTEM

SheerWhite is a breakthrough whitening system that can also be done in the comfort of your home and on your schedule. With SheerWhite there are no molds to be made of your teeth and no custom trays. You simply purchase a SheerWhite kit from our office and everything you need to be on your way to a brighter smile is in the kit. It’s that easy!

CLEANING/CHECK-UP

Don’t wait until it hurts! The American Dental Association recommends that people see a dentist twice yearly for periodic checkups/exams and professional teeth cleaning appointments. The treatment philosophy of our office is to provide comprehensive dental care to all of our patients, which means putting special emphasis on diagnosis, prevention, and early treatment of certain dental problems. These preventive appointments enable us to catch many small dental problems before they become large dental problems.  Our professionals also utilize yearly X-ray examinations as well as thorough examination of the head, neck, tongue, and other soft tissue to help catch most problems early.
