Restorative Dentistry Procedures at McCleery Dental in Bend, Oregon
At McCleery Dental, we offer the following restorative dental treatments:
Implant Crowns and Implant Bridges
Implant crowns and bridges are implant-supported teeth restorations that replace missing or lost teeth. Crowns are used for replacing one missing tooth. Bridges, on the other hand, can replace a series of missing teeth.
Implants are titanium posts that are surgically embedded into the patient's jawbone. They support the dental crown or bridge. Once the bone grows around the dental implant and the osseointegration process is complete, Dr. McCleery attaches an abutment to the implant to hold the dental crown in place.
Implant-Supported Full-Arch Restorations
When a patient is missing a full set of either upper or lower teeth, Dr. McCleery can perform a full arch restoration using only four dental implants strategically placed in the upper jaw or lower jaw. These implants support a fixed denture.
Traditional dentures are affordable and removable dental restorations. They replace an entire set of lost or missing teeth from the mouth's upper or lower arch. This tooth replacement option rests on the gums and jawbone and stays in place through suction or adhesives.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns and Bridges
At McCleery Dental, we can restore damaged or missing teeth in one dental visit using highly advanced same-day technology. With CEREC’s innovative 3D CAD imaging software and state-of-the-art milling equipment, Dr. McCleery can design and manufacture dental crowns or bridges in only a few hours.
Dr. McCleery uses dental bonding for minor tooth restorations. Using durable bonding materials, he fills in damaged or decayed teeth and restores their appearance and strength.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays restore the structure of teeth that have been affected by decay or damage or replace faulty fillings. At McCleery Dental, we offer these fully customizable restorative solutions made from durable materials like porcelain or composite resin to restore an affected tooth’s strength and bite force.
If you are someone who hates or fears dental visits because of "the drill," at McCleery Dental, we offer drill-free procedures using the air abrasion technique. This innovative solution helps eliminate tooth decay safely and quickly and makes dental visits a stress-free experience.
Air abrasion is a minimally invasive procedure performed using a special instrument that emits a fine stream of aluminum oxide particles. This stream of particles is aimed at the affected portion of the tooth and gently removes decay from the tooth’s surface.
Dental air abrasion is used in the following dental treatments instead of a dental drill:
- To treat cavities and prepare the tooth for a dental filling
- To prepare a tooth for bonding or sealants
- To remove old composite restorations
- To remove plaque and tooth decay
- To remove superficial tooth stains and treat discoloration
