If you are looking for solutions to any esthetic challenges with your smile or any oral health problems, call our office for same day dentistry. We are conveniently located in Spokane, and you can schedule an appointment by calling (509) 319-2152. In our dental office, we are passionate about oral health and believe in the critical nature of preventative dental care. For this reason, we recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned and examined once or twice a year. Our objective is to use these appointments to prevent many common oral health problems like cavities and gum disease. While our hope is that all of our patients receive this regular dental care, we know that many people are concerned about the time it will take for this or other procedures. When you visit our dental office, you can be confident that we will perform your teeth cleaning and examination promptly and comfortably. In most cases, your appointment will be over before your lunch break ends.
Same Day Dentistry and Teeth Whitening
If you are looking to see a rapid improvement to the appearance of your teeth, we recommend that you schedule a teeth whitening procedure. This same day dentistry solution can whiten your teeth by eight shades or more in a single office visit. To do so, we place a whitening solution on your teeth that is activated by a special laser light. The solution will penetrate the enamel and begin the process of oxidization. This is where the molecules inside of your teeth will change to reflect less light and appear colorless. As it does, your teeth will appear bright and white. This is typically the fastest way for you to see a significant improvement to the esthetics of your smile. If you live in or near the Spokane area, call 509-319-2152 to schedule an appointment with our Spokane dentist office so that you can enjoy living with a more beautiful smile.
Same Day Dentistry and Dental Bonding
At Brooke M. Cloninger, D.D.S., we offer dental bonding as a way to improve the appearance of your teeth and to restore teeth that have been damaged in an accident. In a bonding procedure, the enamel on your teeth will remain intact, making this solution entirely reversible if you choose to use a different type of restoration in the future. The process can be completed in one day by roughening up the surface of your tooth prior to shaping the bonding material. Created to mimic the natural shade of your teeth, it is shaped prior to being hardened in place for a natural looking restoration. This procedure is certainly ideal for children, given how quickly it can be completed. Many adults also use this option when they are pressed for time and looking for an immediate restoration. The only challenge is that the bonding material will not be as durable as a dental crown would be, making it essential to discuss the pros and cons of the procedure.
If you have significantly damaged your tooth, you may likely need a dental crown to restore its appearance and strengthen it. It is critical that you visit our dental office as soon as possible after damaging your tooth. If you leave the damaged area exposed, bacteria can infect the center of your tooth. This can create the need for a root canal to be completed. If the infection becomes severe, like a dental abscess, more drastic steps may be required to drain the pus. This is an unfortunate but entirely avoidable situation. If you simply have the damaged tooth restored immediately, the risk of a bacterial infection goes down significantly.
At Brooke M. Cloninger, D.D.S., we offer same-day dentistry for a variety of general treatments but not for major dental procedures. We can prep and treat patients for dental crowns throughout the Spokane area. When a crown is created, it is a process that involves the dental lab and, thus, requires at least two visits. First, an impression and measurements are taken of a patient’s mouth. That information is then sent to the dental lab for the crown or crowns to be created, which can take several days or weeks to complete. In the meantime, the tooth is prepared by removing a portion of the enamel so that the crown will lay flat without irritating the surrounding teeth. To then protect the tooth, a temporary crown is placed around the prepared tooth and worn until the new one is ready. Due to the multiple steps involved with this process, a patient could have one or two appointments before the permanent crown is secured to the tooth, but crowns are made to last for 10 to 15 years.
If you live in the Spokane area and have a damaged tooth, we recommend that you call 509-319-2152 to schedule an appointment with our dental office. Since crowns are also used for cosmetic applications, we can also change the shape and size of your teeth, close gaps in between your teeth, cover dark stains, and more. For those that need immediate smile improvement, this is an excellent solution to explore and perhaps the most convenient way to restore your damaged tooth or to change the appearance of your smile. To learn more, call 509-319-2152 and visit our Spokane dental office today.
