Your Best Source for Dental Crowns and Bridges Near Joliet, IL
We practice high-tech dentistry with a gentle touch.
Quality and Convenience Are Hallmarks of Our Restorative Dentistry Services
Even if a cracked or missing tooth isn’t noticeable when you talk and smile, it’s important to take action to prevent further damage. A cracked tooth is more susceptible to bacterial infection and accelerated decay than a fully intact tooth. And a missing tooth leaves a gap in your bite that, over time, can cause your remaining teeth to shift, leading to alignment problems. For many people, crowns and bridges are cost-effective and enduring solutions—provided they are administered by a well-trained and experienced dentist who takes pride in delivering high-quality services.
Fortunately for those in the Joliet, Illinois, area, there’s just such a dentist at nearby Lakota Dental. Dr. Mike Lakota has more than 25 years of experience in general and restorative dentistry, and he has also logged more than 500 hours of continuing education to make sure he stays abreast of the latest dental technology and techniques.
Using the Latest Technology to Outfit Patients with Crowns and Bridges
When you visit Lakota Dental for restorative dental services, you’ll benefit from our investment in state-of-the-art technology. For example, unlike many other dental clinics that use messy and uncomfortable putty to take dental impressions for custom crowns and bridges, we use handheld digital scanners to create 3D scans within minutes. These scans can be sent to a dental lab that makes traditional crowns and bridges, in which case, we’ll outfit you with a sturdy temporary crown until your customized permanent crown arrives.
Additionally, thanks to our in-house milling equipment, we can often outfit patients with a CEREC® same-day crown. This means we can take precise measurements, create a high-quality and natural-looking permanent crown in our clinic while you wait, and put it in place—all during a single visit. Think of the time you’ll save!
If you’re in the Joliet area, we’re only a few miles west of you. Contact Lakota Dental today to make an appointment or request more information about our many dental services for children and adults.
