One-Appointment Crowns

At Cook Family Dentistry in Auburn, WA, we provide convenient one-appointment crowns using advanced CEREC technology. This innovative method allows us to design, fabricate, and place high-quality ceramic crowns in a single visit. Say goodbye to temporary crowns and multiple appointments, and enjoy a quick, comfortable, and precise dental restoration experience with our one-appointment crowns.

Composite (White) Fillings

A filling is recommended to restore defects caused by small areas of breakage or decay.  In our office, only composite filling material is used.  Composite is a tooth-colored mixture of plastic and glass that is bonded to the tooth and seals out bacterial well as long as it is in good condition.  Like any material, composite can chip, stan, and fracture over time and the integrity of its seal must be monitored and maintained to avoid new decay in the future.  Amalgam fillings, made of mercury and other metals, have not been placed in our office since 2007.  Placement of amalgam fillings requires more aggressive removal of tooth structure and does not result in a sealed margin.

Dental Imlants

A dental implant is a small titanium part that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used in solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.

Dental implants are not removable by the patient and are the closest replacement for natural teeth.

Tooth Whitening

We recommend three types of tooth whitening that are safe and effective:

Crest White Strips, Disposable Trays, and Custom Trays.

Crest White Strips are strips of plastic wrap with dots of bleaching gel on them that wrap around the front 6 teeth only. For most people, they work well and are the only product available in stores that will hold the bleaching gel on your tooth surfaces long enough to be effective.

Disposable bleach trays.  We sell these sets of wax trays in the office.  They extend farther back than Crest White Strips but not fully like Custom Trays. Wear them for 30 minutes then discard. The kit includes 10 upper and 10 lower trays.

Custom Trays.  We take a digital impression of your teeth and fabricate custom trays for you that treat every natural tooth.  Custom trays come with bleaching gel that you place sparingly into the trays and wear either for 30 minutes during the day or while you sleep.  Custom trays work best because they hold the bleaching gel against the tooth surface best.  If your trays don’t fit after getting a new crown, we’ll replace them at no cost. Bleach for a few days until you’re happy with results, save the remaining gel for a touch-up and when you need more, we sell refill gel at the office. Invisalign trays can be used as Custom Bleach Trays.

Keep bleaching gel off the gums as it can cause temporary color change and sensitivity in gum tissue. As with any bleaching product, teeth can become temperature sensitive after bleaching. If that happens, discontinue bleaching until sensitivity subsides and try again later.  Bleaching gel lifts surface stains; it does not lighten the internal color of the tooth. Fillings and crowns will not lighten with bleach.  Results vary. If whitening does not get the desired results, ask us about other options.
