Gresham Dentist Discusses Same Day Crowns Part V, Materials Used

Filed under: Cold Sores,Cosmetic Dentistry,crowns in one day,same day crowns — drchambers @ 2:42 pm

The most common material used is made of porcelain and called emax. This is the same material that my lab had been using on the crowns I sent them to make since 2007. Because I had good results with emax before, I was confident in the strength and aesthetic appearance of the crowns I would be making when I started making crowns in one day. Sometimes I also use a material called enamic. It has a porcelain core infused with resin that has some advantages in certain situations.

If you need a crown please give me a call at 503 665 9737                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Harry D Chambers DDS

Gresham Dentist’s Receptionist Discusses Treatment for Cold Sores

Filed under: Cold Sores — drchambers @ 3:40 pm

Have you ever had a cold sore? That’s what happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I woke up one morning with two huge cold sores. I was so upset because it was a Monday morning and I was going to a wedding later that week on Saturday. Our hygienist suggested treating them with the office laser.  Usually, if a cold sore is treated with the laser when you first feel it coming on and before it breaks the skin, it immediately goes away. That is the best time to treat it. But I thought, well we’ll try it and see what happens. I was so surprised! They were throbbing before she treated them, you know that awful ache they cause,  and when she treated them the pain went away!

Even though they were scabbed over, not the ideal time to treat them, the treatment took the pain away and they healed quicker than if they hadn’t been treated.

So if you ever feel a cold sore coming on call our office and we’ll get you in right away so we can treat them with our laser.
