THE GIST WAY
Note: If your current dental team is cementing your crowns, onlays and or veneers without profound local anesthesia, they are not able to control the sterility of the ‘clinical environment’ that this new restoration will be seated on top of. This lack of profound anesthesia, is a clue that these restorations are being cemented over contaminated fluids and bacteria! This results in ‘Septic contamination’ under your dentistry that can progress into serious dental and systemic health problems. This is a ‘lower standard of care’ that we see every day and is one of many differences that sets our restorative / cosmetic practice apart.
We bond our final restorations with anti-bacterial dual cure resins that adheres the sterile biology (tooth structure) and to the restorative material we chose (ceramic or gold). The resin cements that we use are minimally soluble in oral fluids over time. On the other hand, traditional permanent dental cements are all extremely water soluble and tend to dissolves over time, in the presence of moisture. This is a problem because as the cement dissolves; fluid, organic debris and billions of bacteria creep under the restorations and into the cement void and a septic environment begins.
Note: We do not fabricate restorations using current CAD technologies and computer milling protocols (The so called ‘Same Day Crown’). The human eye of a ‘master dentist, dental team and a master ceramist / artist is vital to achieve perfection in fit, color, contour and function with our cases! This is not unique for special VIP patients or unique and special cases. This is our Daily Standard of Care. Our specific protocols by definition keep the surrounding soft tissue un-inflamed and infection free, which allows for long term comfort, improved health, ultimate aesthetics, and a stable bite relationship. This translates to our patients being able to keep their teeth for a lifetime, have improved systemic health, greater self confidence and long term value.
