How can we help you?
At Chagrin Family Dental, we believe in communication. As a smaller practice, we are pleased to be able to offer personalized attention. We take the time to get to know our patients and provide them with the care and attention that every single one of them deserves.
Any time you have a question, we want you to feel completely comfortable asking Dr. Hivick or another member of our team. We’ve compiled a selection of questions that patients often ask us about Chagrin Family Dental, the services we offer, and dental health and hygiene.
If your question isn’t answered here, please feel free to give us a call or email us using the convenient form located on our Contact page. We will answer your question as quickly and as thoroughly as we can.
Crowns and Bridges
Crown placement typically occurs in two separate appointments.
Your Initial Visit
At your first appointment, we'll prep your tooth and take photos and impressions to send to the lab we trust to create restorations for our patients. We may also place a temporary crown if necessary.
Permanent Crown Cementing
Once your permanent crown is ready, which usually takes about one to two weeks, you can return to our office and we'll cement your permanent crown securely in place.
Call our office and schedule an examination and consultation with Dr. Brian Hivick. He'll check your teeth and discuss your concerns with you. We have a number of different options available to improve the appearance of your teeth, depending on your particular concern. You may be an excellent candidate for Invisalign, veneers, bonding, teeth whitening, crowns, and more.
Which option is best for you depends on a number of factors including how many teeth are missing, where they are located, your insurance coverage and budget, and your needs and goals.
What Our Team Will Do For You
Dr. Hivick will discuss all of these factors with you and help you make an informed decision that meets your needs. Some of the options for tooth replacement we offer at Chagrin Family Dental include bridges, partials, dentures, and dental implants. In some cases, a combination of tooth replacement methods may even be appropriate such as bridges or dentures held in place using dental implants.
