Dr. Pringle has a strong artistic background which shows in the aesthetic quality of his work. Not only is he highly skilled in performing excellent dental procedures, he also knows how to create an aesthetically pleasing result for each patient.
It typically takes several days to get fitted with a new crown, and often the crown is metallic and unnatural looking. That all changes with CEREC. Wellington Family Dentistry we use CEREC to get you perfectly fitting crowns that naturally match the color and contour of your real teeth. A CEREC crown is aesthetically pleasing and available in one day.
Tooth decay is preventable. It is caused by sugars left in the mouth that turn into an acid. That acid eats through the enamel of the tooth. Children are at high risk for tooth decay for a simple reason — many children and adolescents tend to be lax in their oral hygiene habits. Correct brushing and flossing habits and regular dental visits will help to keep too decay away.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth) and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth. It may be recommended to replace a permanent tooth that has fallen out from an injury or was taken out because of bad tooth decay. Implants are natural-looking, can provide support for dentures, and do not affect the teeth bordering them.
Dental veneers – or porcelain veneers – are wafer-thin, laminates (or shells) of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth and are an excellent treatment for improving the color, shape, size, or length of each tooth.
A Full Mouth Reconstruction is not an uncommon practice. Due to the number of extraordinary procedures that can repair or correct virtually every dental problem, it is commonly performed to correct functional problems while providing beauty and aesthetics to the patient’s teeth and mouth. For those with multiple dental problems, a Full Mouth Reconstruction can restore dental health and beauty.
Nearly every dentist will claim that he or she is the best. We think you should listen to their patients. That is the most accurate way to determine if a doctor is skilled, honest, friendly, kind and patient. We cannot put a price on our reputation with each and every patient. We protect and guard those relationships by always doing what’s best for each patient.
It’s not unusual to fear a visit to the dentist, but there are now multiple sedation methods available to make your dental appointment pain-free. Dr. Pringle grew up with strong fears of seeing the dentist and that prompted him to develop expertise in the different methods of pain-free dentistry. No dentist in Wellington, Fort Collins or Cheyenne is more sensitive to your concerns about pain than Dr. Pringle.
