Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for many patients with dental anxiety or patients undergoing lengthy procedures. With sedation dentistry options, such as oral sedation, patients can have extensive dental work performed, or just a simple treatment, with no discomfort.

Is Sedation Dentistry Right for Me?

If you feel nervous about your dental care, we may recommend sedation dentistry to help you relax and stay calm. At Dentistry of Fishers, we provide oral sedation, which is convenient for most patients. With oral sedation, you simply take a prescribed pill about an hour before your procedure, which will make you drowsy.

Due to the drowsiness caused by the pill, you will need to have someone drive you to your appointment. And since the medication takes some time to wear off, you’ll also need to have someone drive you home afterward.

You should stay awake during the procedure and have the ability to communicate with the dental team. However, you shouldn’t remember much, if anything, after the drug’s effects have worn off, so the entire experience is effortless and painless.

Sedation Dentistry in Fishers

Dr. Jeremy Jones, DMD, provides sedation dentistry in Fishers because he wants every dental experience to be the best it can be. If you’re interested in sedation dentistry for your dental procedure, discuss this option with our understanding team.

We’re here to make your visits as comfortable as possible, and sedation dentistry accomplishes that for many patients.

Cosmetic Dentistry

When you have damaged teeth, stained teeth, or other dental problems, it can affect your self-confidence and prevent you from sharing your smile. In addition, some dental issues, such as crooked teeth and missing teeth, can cause you to have difficulty with everyday activities, such as eating your favorite foods. 
 
A full-mouth rehabilitation consists of one or more dental procedures designed to improve the function and health of your teeth and gums. At the same time, a smile makeover generally focuses on improving the aesthetics of your smile through cosmetic procedures. However, patients often enjoy many benefits of a full-mouth rehabilitation with a smile makeover and vice versa since they share many of the same procedures.

What Does a Smile Makeover Entail?

Dr. Jeremy Jones, DMD, will customize your smile makeover to your specific needs and smile goals, so the procedures needed will vary. Common cosmetic procedures performed during a smile makeover include:

  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants, bridges, or dentures
  • CEREC dental crowns
  • Gum contouring with laser dentistry

Our Dentistry of Fishers team works closely with patients to create the perfect, celebrity-caliber smile. In fact, helping our patients create an entirely new smile is one of our favorite parts of our job! 

Your Smile Makeover in Fishers

If you would like to make significant smile improvements, we can help with a variety of cosmetic, periodontal, and restorative procedures. We provide excellent dental care to patients in the Fishers community and nearby communities, like Noblesville, Cicero, Carmel, Pendleton, and Indianapolis.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

A CEREC crown is a dental crown that we can place in just one appointment. This is different from a traditional crown because a traditional crown required at least two dental visits, one for prepping the tooth and one for placing the crown once it was created. 

With a CEREC or same-day dental crown in Fishers, we can prep your tooth, take digital impressions, and create your dental crown all in the same day, so you leave our office with your brand-new crown and need to make another appointment!

Why Would I Need a CEREC Crown?

Dr. Jeremy Jones, DMD, may recommend a CEREC dental crown if you have a tooth that needs protection. For example, if your tooth has become structurally unsound due to a large filling or tooth decay. We may also recommend a dental crown after a root canal procedure to help strengthen the affected tooth. 

Dental crowns are an excellent tooth restoration that allows us to save many teeth that would otherwise need extraction. And the dental crown is customized perfectly to your smile, creating a seamless appearance and a comfortable fit. 

Same-Day Dental Crown in Fishers

Dental Implants

When it comes to tooth replacements, dental implants offer patients the closest option to natural teeth. Dr. Jeremy Jones, DMD, places the titanium dental implant directly into the patient’s jaw, where it integrates with the jawbone.

After the area heals, we attach a dental crown or another tooth replacement option, like dentures or bridge, to the dental implant using an abutment. The dental implant itself can last a lifetime with proper care, which makes it an excellent, long-lasting tooth replacement option for many patients. However, the crown, bridge, or dentures will eventually require replacement.

How Long Does the Denture, Crown, or Bridge Last?

If we’ve attached a dental crown, dentures, or a bridge to your dental implant, that portion of your tooth replacement may need replacement at some point. However, if you adhere to an excellent oral hygiene routine and care for your tooth replacement by avoiding some habits, like chewing on ice or your fingernails, then any of these restorations can last a decade or more. 

To extend the life of your tooth replacement, you should also wear a night guard at night if you tend to grind your teeth or clench your jaw and avoid eating crunchy or hard foods that damage the restoration.

Dental Implants in Fishers

At Dentistry of Fishers, Dr. Jeremy Jones, DMD, performs expert dental implant procedures to help patients create complete, healthy smiles. If you need a tooth or teeth replaced, reach out to our experienced team of dental professionals today.

Invisalign Braces

For most patients, Invisalign treatment takes between a year and a year and a half to complete. However, the amount of time it will take for you to complete your Invisalign treatment will depend on your dental situation and goals.

When you visit us for your Invisalign consultation, Dr. Jeremy Jones, DMD, will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and give you an estimated treatment timeline. At that time, we can also discuss the financial aspect of your treatment, so you leave with a complete plan for your new smile. 

How Can I Speed Up My Treatment?

Unfortunately, there’s really no way to speed up your treatment time. We must move your teeth slowly and steadily over the course of months. However, it is possible to make your treatment time longer if you don’t follow Dr. Jones’ directions about using your Invisalign aligners.

To keep your Invisalign treatment on track, it’s vital that you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day, only removing them to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth. It’s also essential to change your aligners out for the next set of aligners according to the schedule Dr. Jones will provide.

Each set of aligners moves your teeth a bit closer to the desired position, and the aligner schedule must be adhered to closely to achieve accurate, timely results.

Invisalign Treatment in Fishers

There’s no reason to wait. Instead, reach out today to schedule an Invisalign consultation with Dr. Fisher and create a straighter smile that’s both healthier and more appealing.

Preventive Dentistry

With an excellent oral hygiene routine at home and routine dental cleanings and exams at Dentistry of Fishers, you can maintain exceptional oral health and a beautiful smile. We recommend that patients visit us every six months for a dental cleaning and exam at a minimum.

However, if you have gum disease or other oral health issues that we need to keep an eye on, we may increase your cleaning schedule so we can see you more frequently and provide you with more care and attention. 

What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?

At Dentistry of Fishers, your dental cleaning will be performed by a skilled dental hygienist. First, the hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, removing all plaque and tartar for better oral health and a more attractive smile. Then, the hygienist can polish your teeth, making them appear shiny and smooth. Your hygienist may also provide a fluoride treatment.

Our dental hygienist has advanced tools and training in achieving ideal cleanliness and can remove tartar that is impossible to remove with just a toothbrush and floss, so these cleanings truly are necessary to keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong.
