When it comes to our everyday lives, our society is a pretty instant society. This isn’t always a bad thing, however. We enjoy texting and emailing, microwaving our leftovers, and hopping in a car to get somewhere much faster than walking or riding horses! Many of these conveniences serve to make our lives happier and easier so that we can spend time doing what we want and with who we want.

Here at Edgewood Dental Care, we have many services that are quick but effective. Thanks to today’s incredible dental technology, Dr. McMahon and our team are able to offer these smile improvements to you! Whether you have missing teeth, damaged teeth, stained teeth, flawed teeth, or even an emergency, we can make your smile look beautiful in just one visit to our Edgewood, KY dentist office!

Take a look at some of these great offerings!

Same-Day Crowns and Bridges
If you have damaged or decayed teeth, a dental crown may be just what you need to protect your remaining tooth structure. We use crowns to cover your tooth after it’s been injured, after it’s been damaged from decay or infection, or after we perform a root canal. The crown fits right over your tooth to look and work just like your natural teeth. If you’re missing a tooth, we can make a dental bridge by connecting a series of crowns to replace your missing tooth and support the entire bridge.

Using CEREC technology, we can create custom crowns right here in our office! We’ll take a digital impression of your teeth, send it to our computers, use it to design your crown, and then send that image to our milling machine. The machine will make your crown out of a block of ceramic in just minutes! Our doctor will perfect, polish, and place it all while you wait in the chair. The whole process for a crown takes about an hour! You’ll walk out with a beautiful smile and a crown that fits to perfection! Read more about it dental crowns and bridges.

Same-Day Implants
Are you missing a tooth and are embarrassed to show your smile? Maybe it’s painful to eat some of the foods you once enjoyed if you don’t have a tooth there. If you’re missing teeth, we can place your implants and give you a set of teeth in the same visit! You won’t have to go without teeth while you’re waiting for your permanent full set of teeth to be made. This means you can eat and avoid being embarrassed as your bone and gums heal from the implant surgery.

Same-Day Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions: Bonding and In-Office Teeth Whitening
One of our quickest, most inexpensive, and popular cosmetic dentistry solutions is bonding. Cosmetic bonding has been around for decades and is a great way to repair minor flaws and imperfections in your teeth, from cracked and chipped teeth to gaps in your teeth and stains. Often, small repairs can take just minutes in the chair! We take great care to make sure the composite bonding matches your smile.
Another way to fix stains in your teeth in just one appointment is with our in-office teeth whitening. Depending on your preference and also the severity of your stains, we can use KoR deep bleaching, Zoom! whitening, or laser whitening in our office. Most take about an hour to an hour and a half to complete, and you’ll notice a big difference in your smile when we’re done! With KoR, you will also take home custom trays to keep your smile white for years to come! Ask us which whitening product is right for you!

Same-Day Previews
Some treatments just take awhile to get the best results possible. Two of these include our smile makeover and Invisalign treatment. Even so, we can help you see what your smile will look like when we’re planning your treatment in the office! We use a computer to provide you with a digital mockup, so that you can see what your results will be before your treatment even begins! This can help you stay patient while your teeth are being perfected because you’ll be able to see the outcome.

Same-Day Emergencies
Did you get a chance to look at our last blog post on dental emergencies? Aside from relying on our experience, we can use our technology to get quick diagnosis and plan your treatment. We can see almost all emergencies the same day! Learn about different types of emergencies here.
