Consultation: Novato | Mill Valley (415) 388-2172

Advances in dentistry are happening at a rapid pace. The Novato CEREC dentist has chosen to invest in same-day technology because the process is efficient, comfortable, and improves the health and appearance of your smile. We believe that any technology that does all this is worth talking about!

So what exactly does this mean for you? Here are 5 important things you need to know about CEREC crowns:
  1. Crowns made using CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology can be created in just one appointment! No running back and forth for fittings and final placement of your crown.
  2. Placing CEREC crowns is comfortable and efficient, minimizing the time you have to spend in the dental chair. Since we use CAD-CAM technology, Dr. McConnell creates a digital impression. You no longer have to sit in the chair with the dreaded pink paste and a large metal tray in your mouth!
  3. Since CEREC crowns can be made in just one visit with the Novato CEREC dentist office, you don’t have the hassle of dealing with a temporary crown that may look artificial and not fit comfortably.
  4. Unlike conventional porcelain-on-metal crowns, CEREC crowns are all porcelain, so there’ s no metal to show through at your gum line. CEREC technology fabricates crowns out of a block of high-quality, durable porcelain that’s shaded and shaped to match your specific smile.
  5. In the real world, CEREC dental crowns look attractive and hold up beautifully to the wear and tear of daily life—just like a natural tooth does.
While we also offer traditional crowns, many patients prefer CEREC because they can walk out of our office with a beautiful new tooth and a more attractive smile.

The dental needs of your entire family are critical when selecting the right dentist. A dental professional who offers services to family members of all ages is really the best option. You can enjoy the benefits of one-stop convenience for yourself and your children with Novato family dentist Dr. Steven McConnell while ensuring that everyone’s oral health is being monitored regularly.

Prevention Protects Oral Health

The simple truth is that the key to optimum oral health is prevention. The types of services that family dentistry includes are those that address prevention as the first step in dental care. These include regular cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, routine x-rays, and other routine dental work. The American Dental Association suggests at least twice-yearly visits to your family dentist for checkups.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

During your semi-annual visits to the Novato family dentist, you will receive a routine oral examination, including oral cancer screening, and a professional cleaning. The cleaning is essential to get rid of stains and plaque buildup, which in turn prevents tooth decay and gum problems. Your dental team will provide recommendations for proper at-home brushing, flossing and rinsing to help reduce the buildup of plaque between regular appointments.

Another benefit of seeing a family dentist is that they can effectively monitor the oral health of your family from early childhood into adulthood. This establishes a meaningful ongoing relationship with your family. Young children need to be introduced to dental care in a welcoming and comforting setting to develop a trusting relationship with dentists that will last into adulthood.

Please Call for Your Family’s Next Appointment

It is especially important to schedule regular appointments for checkups so that problems can be identified as early as possible before more extensive and costly dental work becomes necessary. Take the stress out of making and keeping your regularly scheduled appointments by selecting a family dentist who can see to all your oral health needs.

Today, there are more options than ever for correcting esthetic smile flaws. If you’re not happy with the position, shape, or whiteness of your teeth, you don’t necessarily need to spend lots of money on high-end cosmetic dental treatments.

Everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of, regardless of their budget. Whenever we can, the Novato cosmetic dentist offers our patients the most conservative and affordable cosmetic treatments available.

Dental bonding is an excellent way to repair chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. It’s fast, less costly than other treatments, and we can usually restore several teeth in just one appointment.

What Problems does Bonding Correct?

Using dental bonding, we can easily alter the shape, size, and even the color of your teeth. One of the things about bonding that makes it so effective is that the material we use can be shaded to closely match the color of your natural teeth. The result is a repair that even you won’t be able to see!

The Novato cosmetic dentist often chooses the procedure to correct the following flaws:

  • Uneven gaps in-between your front teeth
  • Small chips and fractures in enamel
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • How Does Dental Bonding Work?

    Bonding requires special skill and attention to detail, and our doctors start the process by carefully mixing several shades of composite resin to match your natural tooth color as possible. Next, she carefully and expertly shapes and bonds the material to your tooth. Since the repair blends so well with your smile, we can use it to fill in a small chip or cover entire surface of a discolored tooth.

    A Beautiful Smile is Closer than You Think

    Have you always believed that a smile makeover was beyond your reach? If so, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn how a simple process like bonding can produce the beautiful results you’ve always dreamed about.
