DENTAL CROWNS & BRIDGES
Dental crowns are individual restorations that are designed to cover a single tooth, rebuilding its functional shape and appearance while preserving what remains of the natural structure underneath. Dr. Wagner may recommend one if you are struggling with severe tooth decay, an injury, worn-down enamel, or cosmetic imperfections. Additionally, dental crowns can be combined to create a dental bridge, which replaces one or more consecutive missing teeth. The crowns are anchored over adjacent natural teeth, holding the new bridge sturdily in place for a fixed and reliable result.
When a tooth is too damaged to support a filling but not quite at the stage of requiring a new dental crown, a personalized inlay or onlay may be the ideal in-between solution here in Jacksonville Beach, FL. Inlays are designed to fit within the cusps of the tooth, while onlays wrap around the cusps and cover a greater amount of the tooth’s surface. These small restorations are designed to be attractive, durable, and long-lasting.
In addition to the traditional uses of a custom-made dental crown, these singular restorations can also be used to effectively cover a single implant! Crowns are the optimal solution for replacing single implants/teeth because they will not significantly impact the health or structure of the patient’s remaining smile. Better yet, we can use CEREC to create your new restoration in just one appointment for maximum convenience.

COMPOSITE RESIN FILLINGS
Cavities are one of the most common dental problems patients face, and a composite resin filling (also known as a “tooth-colored” filling) is an effective and aesthetically pleasing solution. This high-quality material comes in several shades that can be precisely matched to your existing tooth enamel, and its conservative nature also means that we can preserve more of your tooth’s healthy structure for stronger, longer-lasting results. Composite resin can also be used to seamlessly correct minor aesthetic flaws, such as chips or small gaps between teeth.
CEREC ONE-VISIT CROWNS
Traditionally, it would take at least two visits to the dental office and a messy impression to fix a damaged tooth with a crown, but thanks to CEREC One-Visit Restorations, we can save you the time and discomfort all at once. No messy impressions and no gagging! With our CEREC system, we can design, mill, and place a completely custom-made all-porcelain dental crown in about an hour, all without having to use an uncomfortable dental impression. With CEREC, you get speed and quality all at the same time.
FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH DENTURES
With the right kind of dentures, we cannot only replace your missing teeth, but also enhance the entire appearance of your face as well as enable you to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. A normal denture simply can’t guarantee this kind of result, which is why our practice only uses Fountain of Your Dentures to help those patients with multiple missing teeth. With them, you won’t just get your smile back, but we can easily take years off of your appearance as well.
