Our long-time Jeffersonville dental office is here to guide your dental treatment from start to finish. At Kirchner Dental, we can handle everything from general dentistry to in-depth full-mouth reconstructions. Our modern technology and extensive training give us the edge when tackling complicated issues. We can even save you time. That’s right, many dental procedures are quicker than ever before — from straightening teeth to replacing them.

Today I want to outline a few ways we can cut down on your time in the dental office. The bottom line for us, we don’t pursue any additional treatment unless it’s convenient and long-lasting.

Here are a few ways we can help your smile:

Short-term orthodontic treatment Invisalign

Anyone who is older than 30 years old has probably either had braces or knows plenty of people who have had braces. Traditional braces are a great way to straighten teeth, but the treatment can take anywhere from two to three years. That’s a long time to wear braces, especially if you aren’t a child. Conventional braces are still the best way to correct crooked teeth, certainly if you have extensive orthodontic issues. But not everyone needs extensive orthodontic treatment. This is where Invisalign comes in handy.

Invisalign uses clear aligners to move teeth into a more appropriate position. The aligners are removable and only need to be replaced once every two weeks. You’ll only have to visit the office once every six months, too. The treatment only takes about 12 to 18 months. Invisalign is ideal for adults with mild orthodontic issues.

Replacement teeth in a day

Having missing teeth or failing teeth can be traumatic and downright painful. There are millions of people in American living with missing teeth, making it hard to eat the food they love. Won’t it be nice to immediately replace teeth that have failed? Now you can. At Kirchner Dental, we offer a special service known as teeth in a day. It’s important to replace teeth as soon as possible. Not only does it fill in the gaps in your smile, but replacing missing teeth will cause your natural teeth to not shift in the mouth.

We use tools like dental implants, as well as crowns and bridges.

Restore Teeth in Just 90 Minutes

We’re skilled at placing dental implants and restoring damaged teeth. Restorations like crowns and bridges help us repair a tooth that can no longer be helped with a filling. A crown is one of the most versatile treatments in dentistry. We use it for teeth with cosmetic issues or  functional issues. Crowns have been used in dentistry for hundreds of years. Of course, these restorations have come a long way. We can now fabrication, design, and place these crowns in one 90-minute visit. Most dental offices need to schedule two or more visits to finish a crown procedure. Using a technology called CEREC same-day crowns, we can restore the tooth and place the permanent crown in about 90 minutes.

The big advantage of CEREC is that it eliminates the needs for a temporary crown. We’ve met many patients who have worn temporary crowns for weeks — or even months.
