Same Day Dentist
Is your life hectic? When your free time is limited, visiting the dentist several times may not be possible. Luckily, you can still improve your smile no matter how busy your schedule. Our Westlake, OH dentist, Dr. Scott D. Sazima at Westlake Periodontics, share information on several same day dentistry services that you may want to consider.
Veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain or composite resin. They're designed to fit the fronts of your teeth exactly and are attached with dental cement. Veneers are often used to cover minor flaws in teeth, such as chips and cracks, but they can also lengthen teeth, close gaps and hide discolorations. Do you want whiter teeth, but don't want to deal with the hassle of whitening treatments? Veneers never need to be touched up and may offer better results than whitening treatments.
Inlays and onlays
Inlays and onlays are recommended when decay has damaged a large area of your tooth and a filling can't be used. Because these restorations bond to your teeth, they help them become stronger, unlike traditional fillings that may weaken teeth. Inlays fit inside the cusps of your teeth, while onlays cover the cups. Cusps are the ridges you can feel around the edges of teeth.
Crowns, sometimes called caps, are hollow and are designed to be worn over teeth. They may be needed if your tooth is fragile, cracked or broken, but are also used to address cosmetic issues. They're a good choice if you need to lengthen a tooth, conceal discolorations or change the shape of a tooth.
Implants and Soft/Minimal Bone Implants
Dr. Sazima has placed more than 8,000 dental implants, many in soft or minimal bone, as well in patients requiring a sinus lift. He does many same day implants, single and multiple, including snap in dentures.
