CEREC One-Appointment Dental Crowns

A dental crown can be used in many different treatments, but traditional technology required at least two visits to the dentist to complete the crown.

Our team wants to bring you the best possible treatment, and that passion leads everyone at Meyer Dentistry to bring you the latest dental technologies available.

Our dentist and dental team work hard to stay current on the latest advances in dental technology and techniques.

CEREC technology allows our team to provide you with a custom-made, high-quality dental restoration in a single visit to our office.

With CEREC technology, we can create many types of dental restorations in just one visit, including:

  • Dental crowns

With CEREC one-visit restorations, you will have no need for uncomfortable temporary crowns, veneers or other restorations.

Root Canal Therapy

If there has been a large amount of decay or infection deep in a tooth, our dentist may recommend a root canal treatment. Dr. Meyer will ensure that your visit with us is as comfortable as possible. For more information about getting a root canal in Greenville, South Carolina, and to schedule your next appointment with our dentist, we welcome you to contact us soon at Meyer Dentistry.

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Dr. Meyer and entire team work hard to provide you with a pleasant and comfortable experience each time you visit our office. To learn more about root canal treatment, we welcome you to contact us today. We are committed to restoring your smile’s health.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to fill the space left by one or more missing teeth. At Meyer Dentistry, we take the greatest care to restore your smile. Dr. Meyer offers quality dental bridges in Greenville, South Carolina, to restore your oral health, appearance, and function after tooth loss. Contact Meyer Dentistry today to schedule your consultation! 

If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete a dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty and health of your smile.

Dr. Meyer may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:

  • Restoring your ability to speak, eat and chew normally
  • Alleviating excess stress on the bite
  • Improving the shape and volume of your face
  • Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
  • Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
  • Enhancing the appearance of your smile

We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. For more information, please call or visit us today.

Dentures & Partials

When multiple teeth are missing, our dentist may recommend dentures to take their place. Dr. Meyer brings excellent quality to each of the dentures and partials he crafts. Each is custom-fitted to bring you the most comfortable fit possible. We welcome you to contact Meyer Dentistry today to schedule your consultation with our friendly dentist for dentures in Greenville, South Carolina!

Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile. There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

  • A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in one or both arches depending on your individual needs. Our dentist may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
  • A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have natural teeth remaining. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

Our dentist may recommend complete or partial dentures to restore your smile if you are missing multiple teeth; dentures can improve your ability to properly speak and eat, restore your natural facial volume, and improve your quality of life. Your dentures will be custom-made to fit your smile comfortably, aesthetically, and securely. Call or visit us soon to learn more about how dentures can improve your smile!

Dental Implants

Here at Meyer Dentistry, we take great pride in our dental implants. Dr. Meyer brings outstanding quality to the dental implants he provides here. Implants are a great choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. Please feel free to contact our office today to learn more about dental implants, and to set up your personalized consultation with Dr. Meyer.

Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.

Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.

Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime. Please feel free to contact our office today to learn more about dental implants and to set up your personalized consultation with Dr. Meyer!

Fillings

Fillings play a large role in many of the services we offer, such as cavity treatment. We are proud to offer fillings in Greenville, SC. Dr. Meyer holds your health, safety and comfort in highest priority. To learn more about fillings, contact us today at Meyer Dentistry!

A filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if a tooth has been damaged by decay (for example, if it has a cavity) or suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function, and return your smile to good health.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Dr. Meyer will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the area with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened by our dentist for a lasting restoration.

If one of your teeth is decayed or damaged, a filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about fillings and schedule your next appointment with our dentist and team. We look forward to caring for your smile!
