Restorative Dentistry

Regular check-ups and cleanings can help ensure the health of your teeth. Unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary to repair damaged teeth. These repairs usually fall into one of three categories: fillings, onlays and crowns.


Same-day Crowns  at Wondra Dental

Did you Know?

The ceramic crowns are designed and applied in a single visit using the advanced CEREC system. This dynamic software takes the guesswork out of crown design. They are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth, and the bonding process provides a superior bond to your teeth.

What is a CEREC Dental Crown?

CEREC in dentistry terms stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This refers to a system that uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to construct materials for dental restoration. This state-of-the-art technology can design crowns, dental implants, fixed bridges, inlays and onlays, veneers, dentures, and some orthodontic appliances.

Dentists can now create dental crowns in various materials, including metal, porcelain, ceramic, and resin. A CEREC crown, however, is made out of extremely durable ceramic. Since they use computer-assisted technology available on-site to design, create, and install these crowns, the entire process can take a single visit.

When the majority of the upper tooth has been damaged and needs to be replaced, a crown may be in order. Dr. Wondra offers crowns in ceramic or gold. Gold crowns are appropriate when appearance is not a priority. The gold metal is malleable, making them fit precisely. There exists a slight possibility (around 1 in 100) of chipping with porcelain crowns, but gold will not chip.

What can CEREC do for you?

CEREC is a computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system used in dentistry to create same day crowns and other dental restorations in a single visit.

With this complete, in-office system, we can create long-lasting ceramic crowns and more—in a single visit, in as little as one hour. That means a healthier smile for you in less time.

Teeth Whitening at Wondra Dental

Did you know?
Over-the-counter bleaching products are not endorsed by the ADA.



Nightguards are custom-made to treat tooth clenching or grinding and prevent excessive wear and fractures to the tooth surfaces while you sleep.


Sports Mouthguards

Dental injuries are the most common type of orificial injury sustained during participation in sports, according to the National Youth Sports Foundation for Safety.

An athlete is 60 times more likely to endure damage to the teeth when not wearing a mouth guard. It is estimated that mouthguards professionally designed by dentists prevent approximately 200,000 injuries, such as concussions and dental and mandibular injuries, each year in high school and college football.

The stock mouthguard, which can be purchased at sports stores without an individual fitting, provides only a low level of protection, if any. Our office can fit you for a custom made sportguard, specific for your athletic needs.


There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today, a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature’s mistake or the results of an injury and help you to have a beautiful smile.

Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. The shells are bonded to the font of the teeth changing their color, shape and size or length.

Some of the top reasons for having veneers are:

  • Teeth that are discolored – because of root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes, or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth

  • Teeth that are worn down, chipped or broken
  • Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped
  • Teeth with gaps between the

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are long term replacements for missing teeth. The advantage of dental implants is that surrounding teeth do not need to be compromised. A specialist will place the implant and then upon healing, Dr. Wondra can have the implant crown fabricated. Dental Implants can also be used to anchor dentures, to help alleviate mobility.


Dental Sealants at Wondra Dental

Did you know?
According to the CDC School-age children (6-11) without sealants have almost 3 times as many cavities in the first molars as children who do have sealants. 

Sealants are offered for every child and adult! Sealants are a protective barrier on the chewing surfaces of molars to protect the grooves from decay. Ultradent Sealants provide the highest level of protection for you and your family.

According to the Center for Disease Control here are some frequently asked questions about dental Sealants:

1What are dental sealants?
A dental sealant, also called a pit and fissure sealant, is a plastic, professionally-applied material that is put on the chewing surfaces of back teeth to prevent cavities. Sealants provide a physical barrier so that cavity-causing bacteria cannot invade the pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of teeth.
2Why should my child get dental sealants?
Since the early 1970s, childhood dental caries on smooth tooth surfaces (those without pits and fissures) has declined markedly because of widespread exposure to fluorides. By 1986-1987, approximately 90% of the decay in children’s teeth occurred in tooth surfaces with pits and fissures, and almost two-thirds were found on the chewing surfaces alone. Dental sealants have been shown to prevent decay on tooth surfaces with pits and fissures. Sealants have been approved for use for many years and are recommended by professional health associations and public health agencies.
3When should my child get dental sealants?
First permanent molars erupt into the mouth at about 6 years of age. Placing sealants on these teeth shortly after they erupt protects them from developing caries in areas of the teeth where food and bacteria collect. If sealants were applied routinely to susceptible tooth surfaces in conjunction with the appropriate use of fluoride, most tooth decay in children could be prevented. Second permanent molars erupt into the mouth at about 12 years of age. Pit and fissure surfaces of these teeth are as susceptible to dental caries as the first permanent molars of younger children. Therefore, young teens need to receive dental sealants shortly after the eruption of their second permanent molars.
4Are dental sealants just for kids?
The potential to develop pit and fissure decay begins early in life, so children and teenagers are obvious candidates. But some adults at high risk of decay can benefit from sealants as well. Your dentist can tell you if you would benefit from dental sealants.
5Do dental sealants replace fluoride?
No. Fluorides, such as those used in community water, toothpaste, gels, varnishes and mouthrinses, also help to prevent decay. Fluoride works best on the smooth surfaces of teeth. The chewing surfaces on the back teeth, however, have tiny grooves where decay often begins. Sealants keep cavity-causing bacteria out of the grooves by covering them with a safe plastic coating. Sealants and fluorides work together to prevent tooth decay.
