Is Your Mouth a Museum?

Do you have fillings, crowns, bridges or dentures that are more than 15, 20, or even 30 years old?  Dentistry has come a long way in the past 30 years and we are using more biocompatible, life-like restorations.  We have more convenient, comfortable procedures and the results look like you haven’t had anything done.  Instead of old, failing silver fillings that were placed years ago, we can now bond porcelain inlays, onlays and crowns giving you a much more natural look.  You use your mouth to smile, talk, eat, kiss and Capstone Dental wants to give you the smile you deserve.  One that will look amazing and function great for the rest of your life.

To accomplish these regenerative procedures Capstone Dental has brought CEREC’s one day crown system to our downtown office.  No more temporaries, no gooey impressions, no waiting two weeks to get your permanent crown back from the laboratory.  Now in only ONE appointment we can remove old filling materials or any new decay, image the teeth with a camera, design, fabricate and deliver your new restorations.  The procedure is very precise and we are able to keep quality control throughout the entire process because everything is done in one visit at our office.

So if your mouth is a museum with restorations from who knows when, come to Capstone Dental and see the many advancements that have taken place since those old silver fillings were done.

A Message About Fluoride From Brea

Did you know… .

The most common disease affecting people today is tooth decay.  On a daily basis, our teeth are exposed to bacteria, sugar and acids which eventually weaken our teeth and can lead to cavities.  Research has shown that over time good oral hygiene and fluoride are essential in maintaining healthy teeth.  Getting a professional fluoride treatment at every 6mo check-up can reduce cavities by up to 74%. Fluoride is also affective against sensitivity, bacteria and can remineralize softened enamel (shallow cavities) that is beginning to form. Capstone Dental offers fluoride at every dental check-up, so call and make your appointment today and spring into summer with a healthy smile!
