Dental Crowns, Inlays & Onlays in Dallas, Texas

August 23, 2016

Creating Beautiful, Durable Smiles with Custom-Made Crowns in Dallas, Texas.

ACTUAL PATIENT OF Dr. Robert Mitchell DDS

*Actual Patient

A damaged or severely worn tooth can mar your appearance and cause discomfort. Left untreated, the problem will only worsen and could result in an awkwardly broken tooth, acute pain, or a diseased tooth root. Let Dr. Mitchell restore structural integrity to your compromised dentition with a custom crown, inlay, or onlay.

A crown sits snugly atop a compromised tooth to strengthen and protect it. Dr. Mitchell uses all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and gold crowns for durable, long-lasting restorations. He’ll consider the location of your tooth and the amount of stress it incurs to determine which material to use. Porcelain crowns look and feel like natural teeth, so they’ll blend seamlessly into your smile.

Typically, we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a couple of short appointments. The procedure for installing a dental crown normally takes two separate dentist visits. At your first appointment, Dr. Mitchell will examine the tooth to make sure that it can support a crown, then begin shaping the tooth to prepare it for the crown. Alternatively, if the tooth is severely damaged or broken, Dr. Mitchell may need to fill it in to make it large enough to properly receive the crown. After the tooth is prepped to the proper shape, Dr. Mitchell will take an impression of the tooth, as well as those surrounding it, and send it away to a dental lab, so the permanent crown can be made accordingly. By the end of this first visit, your tooth will have a new temporary crown that protects it until the final crown is ready to be permanently placed.

When the permanent crown is ready, you will have your second visit. At this appointment, the temporary crown is removed, Dr. Mitchell will position and fasten the new crown to the tooth with a special permanent adhesive.

Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam, too. If you have any questions please call 972-233-1311 we would love to set up a consultation for Dr. Mitchell or one of our knowledgeable staff members to go over the process with you in more detail.

Sedation Dentistry in Dallas, Texas

May 31, 2016

Alleviating Anxiety with Safe, Comfortable Sedation Dentistry

*Actual PatientAlleviating Anxiety with Safe, Comfortable Sedation Dentistry

Fear of the dentist is common, but it needn’t prevent you from achieving a strong, healthy smile. Dr. Mitchell uses sedation dentistry to alleviate anxiety and promote a positive dental care experience. He offers oral conscious sedation as well as intravenous (IV) sedation. Both methods are safe, effective and have been used by millions of people to achieve strong, beautiful smiles. Come in for a consultation, and we’ll help you determine if sedation dentistry is right for you.

Oral Conscious Sedation

If you qualify for oral conscious sedation, Dr. Mitchell will prescribe a sedative for you to take prior to your appointment. You’ll feel groggy, so please have a friend or family member drive you to and from our office. After you enter a state of deep relaxation, Dr. Mitchell will perform your dental work and potentially reverse years of damage or neglect in a single visit. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, may be used to enhance sedation. Your oral conscious sedation will wear off gradually and leave you with only pleasant memories of your time with us.

IV Sedation

Dr. Mitchell may suggest IV sedation to ease apprehension and calm patients who require time-consuming treatments, have a sensitive gag reflex, or suffer from conditions that prevent them from holding their mouths open for long periods of time. Many people prefer IV sedation because they simply fall asleep prior to treatment and awaken with no memory of their procedures. We’ll tailor your level of sedation to your unique needs. Following treatment, you’ll emerge fully from your sedation but will need a friend or family member to drive you home.

Preview Your Future with Digital Imaging

January 5, 2016

When you decide to correct or enhance your smile, it’s often difficult to determine ahead of time exactly what kind of results to expect. After all, a smile is a pretty personal thing, and changing your smile can feel like changing your identity. That’s where cosmetic digital imaging comes into play. Digital imaging is computer software that allows us to take your digital photograph and manipulate it to reflect the procedures you’re considering. The result is a photo that shows you what your smile would look like after treatment. Whether you’re considering 1017529_110613153756_D10g

The process is quite simple. Once your dentist has completed your oral exam and discussed your smile goals, a treatment plan will be created. Various digital photos of your current smile will be taken and change factors will be keyed into the computer. The computer will immediately generate one or more graphic images that accurately demonstrate how the changes will affect the appearance of your mouth, as well as your overall facial appearance. It’s a fun process, and it can instigate excitement similar to when a sonogram reveals the gender of a new baby. Plus, you can take a photo of the new you home to share with family or friends.

Informed patients make wise decisions, and digital imaging allows you the opportunity to actually glimpse your future before committing to treatment. What more could you ask for?

A Beautiful smile is a valuable asset! Let us explain how our advanced procedures in both cosmetic and general dentistry can give you the attractive smile you’ve always wanted.

Call 972-233-1311 today to schedule your Complimentary Consult to learn more about your smile and different options to enhance your smile.
