At Bright Young Smiles, we are proud to offer CEREC, the latest in single visit dental technology. CEREC is a breakthrough computerized 3D system that allows us to create custom dental crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, and bridges right in our Lighthouse Point, FL office. By using this advanced technology, we can give you custom, perfectly matched and fitted crowns, veneers, and porcelain fillings all during the same dental visit!

Using 3D scanning technology, we take a digital impression of your teeth instead of using gooey, uncomfortable impressions. Once we scan your tooth, our team will begin to design a custom crown or restoration to precisely fit your tooth and blend seamlessly with the rest of your mouth.

During this time, you can relax, watch TV, or even run a quick errand if you wish. Your crown is designed by our skilled team of doctors and technicians using the advanced CEREC software to process and transmit it to our milling chamber where your restoration will be created from a single piece of ceramic or porcelain.

After milling, like a small work of art, we hand glaze and color the restoration to match your natural teeth. The result is an aesthetically pleasing replacement tooth that is strong and long-lasting.

Once the crown or restoration is complete, it will be cemented to your tooth. The average treatment time lasts about two hours, and you will walk out the door with your long-lasting dental crown all in one visit. To learn more about your treatment options for same-day dental restorations in Lighthouse Point, FL, call us today to schedule your appointment.

A big shout out to the staff at bright young smiles. I woke up in pain and I had not been to their office in 7 years, but they got me in same day. Dr. Gaffney was amazing. He referred me to the best Endodontics office in Boca. I will always use Bright Young Smile for the rest of my life. Thank you

Going to the dentist has been something I try to put off in the past. However, whenever I come to Bright Young Smiles I can stay there for hours— literally! Dr. Catherine Young and her assistant Rose spent several hours on my latest dental work, filling in cavities and adding bonding. I couldn’t be happier with the results, I feel so much better about my smile now! They made the whole experience extremely comfortable for me, offering a blanket and letting me catch up on my latest Netflix show. They utilize the latest tech gadgets on the market for dentistry so you don’t feel like all these crazy tools are in your mouth. Which in my opinion usually tends to feel uncomfortable hence why I’ve avoided the dentist in the past. Dr. Catherine Young also focuses on cosmetic dentistry and was able to help correct the balance of my smile via lip fillers. She has an artistic eye and takes the time to really focus and perfect where she is injecting in order to make your smile perfectly balanced. I’ve had filler in the past and usually it’s a quick appointment where I felt that they didn’t take the time to consider the structure of my face. Dr. Young was the complete opposite and was so gentle whenever she would inject. Would highly recommend this procedure to be done if you want the perfect smile!

When my friend recommended Bright Young Smiles I never in a million years expected to have the experience My son and I had with them. Dr. Catherine Young has not only helped me with my TMJ problems but I swear to you she has a halo on her head. She is not just really good at what she does but she is so compassionate and kind and held my hand while I was going through a difficult time. Its not hard to see why everyone in her staff is happy in the office. Everyone is very friendly and want to make you feel very comfortable while you’re there. My whole family will start going there now. :)

Inlays are a strong and long-term alternative to a traditional tooth-colored filling. They are used to replace small areas of tooth structure affected by tooth decay. Inlays can be made of a tooth-colored material such as ceramic, porcelain, or special dental composite and are made in our office using the cutting-edge CEREC CAD/CAM technology that creates a customized porcelain restoration in a single visit.

Defective or misshapen “fillings” can be replaced by porcelain inlays and attached to the tooth. This bonding process can actually strengthen the tooth and is a conservative long-term solution to dental cavities because the porcelain material is much more resistant to tooth decay than composite tooth-colored fillings.

Onlays also fit inside the tooth but extend onto the chewing surface of a back tooth to replace one or more cusps. In the past, onlays were made only of gold, but like inlays, more patients wanted a tooth-colored onlay. Onlays are completed in a single visit and are customized for your tooth using our CEREC CAD/CAM technology and in-office dental laboratory. Making the onlay out of ceramic or porcelain allows the restoration to be bonded to the tooth.

This bonding process may actually strengthen the tooth and help seal the onlay to it. In most cases, onlays serve as a more conservative option to a full-coverage dental crown. Whenever possible, our Bright Young Smiles team will present the least invasive treatment available and advise if a dental onlay is right for you.
