Crowns and Bridges Are Never Routine at Lakota Dental

For many dentists, fitting patients with crowns and bridges is a routine procedure, but not for Dr. Mike Lakota at Lakota Dental in Shorewood, Illinois. Dr. Lakota is a caring family dentist with over 25 years of experience in family dentistry, and he has completed more than 500 hours of continuing education in delivering specialized dental services, including tooth repairs. He will take the time to discuss the specific details of your missing or damaged teeth and educate you about your options so you can make an informed decision.

Lakota Dental is also equipped with intraoral scanning technology to create 3D digital images that lead to crowns and bridges that deliver the perfect fit. This means you won’t have to endure the goopy and often distasteful putty impressions that many other dentists rely on to outfit their patients with dental restorations.

CEREC® Same-Day Crowns Available

For many restorative dentistry patients, the most inconvenient aspect of getting a crown is being outfitted with a temporary cap while the permanent crown is manufactured in a dental lab. This can often take weeks. Then the patient will have to return to the dental clinic to be fitted with the permanent crown.

Dr. Lakota offers a better alternative for many patients: CEREC same-day crowns, also known as one-visit crowns. Lakota Dental has invested in the equipment to precisely fabricate custom ceramic crowns within minutes. Dr. Lakota has extensive experience creating and fitting patients with this option, which can be a cost-effective time-saver for many patients.

Our restorative dentistry services include not only crowns and bridges but also dentures, implants, and custom orthotic devices to treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. For more information, contact Lakota Dental in Shorewood today.
