Nearly all of us experience dental decay or damage at some point in our lives, and when it happens, what you need most is a team that can provide you with the support you need. Dr. Scott Grivas specializes in restorative services that revitalize the durability and strength of your teeth while also providing a high level of aesthetic quality and natural feel. Whether you have a cavity or you’re missing one or more teeth, our dedicated staff and revolutionary technology in Sacramento will be sure to leave you smiling.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
Dr. Grivas is proud to offer the latest in natural-looking dental restorations: all-ceramic, non-metal crowns. These crowns offer an ideal match to the natural color of your teeth, and you’ll notice right away how lifelike they are, both in look and feel. They’re ideal for front teeth restorations and can benefit patients with metal allergies. Even better is the fact that they don’t produce the black gum line that is fairly common with porcelain-metal crowns.
Are you missing one or more consecutive teeth? A dental bridge can replenish the sturdiness, durability, and aesthetic value you’ve been missing in your smile. Your new restoration is created by fusing high-quality dental crowns together and securing them in place with additional crowns that are fitted over neighboring teeth as anchors. Drs. Grivas will be sure to take into account your personal preferences and needs when determining what kind of material would be best for your new dental bridge and/or crown.
CEREC One-Visit Restorations
When you have a hectic schedule, finding time for the multiple appointments a dental crown requires can be difficult. Thankfully, Dr. Grivas specializes in providing same-day crowns, fillings, inlays, onlays, veneers, and other restorations using state-of-the-art CEREC technology. Only 10 percent of dentists have the training necessary to use CEREC. Our team is always thrilled to be able to help struggling patients walk out after one appointment with a smile that’s healthier, happier, and more confident than ever.
The CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) procedure is fairly simple – first, we’ll capture an optical 3D image with a small camera that’s placed in your mouth. Using this information, we can design a perfect restoration that is then expertly milled from a ceramic block with the help of diamond-coated instruments and revolutionary CAD/CAM technology. After this process, the new restoration should fit ideally within your mouth. Then, once we’ve united porcelain and tooth through bonding, a good polish will give you the pleasantly smooth and natural feel you enjoy. With precise color and form, our special ceramic blend beautifully matches your natural teeth. In fact, the final result is so seamless that many patients tend to forget they ever had a crown placed at all!
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal (also known as endodontic therapy) may become necessary when the nerve of a tooth is severely affected by decay or infection to the point that extraction is a viable option. While the procedure may have a scary reputation, patients can trust their oral health to Dr. Grivas who is well-versed in the art of root canal procedures and will be sure to keep your treatment as comfortable as possible. In order to save your tooth, he and the rest of our team will work to remove diseased pulp, nerves, bacteria, and other decay from the inner chamber. The area is then filled with a special, biocompatible dental material and sealed thoroughly to prevent the risk of further infection. Finally, we’ll design a custom-made dental crown to fit on top, protecting and strengthening the tooth’s structure. Once the inflammation and sensitivity has diminished, patients can fully enjoy a full, healthy smile again – no tooth loss required.
