Restorative Dentistry Services Transform Smiles
In a perfect world, no one would ever need to have teeth restored, but we both know that sometimes, despite your best efforts, you might develop a problem with your teeth and gums. Our goal is to catch that problem when it is small, before treatment becomes extensive and expensive.
When you do need restorative work done, our goal is to make your experience pain and stress free. We will work with you to be sure you understand why you need treatment and will thoroughly discuss all your options. We choose only the best materials and techniques because we believe you deserve the best possible treatment.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
If you're self-conscious about your smile because of cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy smile with porcelain crowns. A filling can restore a small defect, but a crown is the most reliable way to restore a tooth that has extensive damage. With all the materials and techniques modern dentistry has to offer, crowns can be completely natural looking.
Tooth Colored Fillings
If you're embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth, you may be a good candidate for tooth colored, composite resin fillings. In the past, a silver-colored amalgam was used by dentists to repair damaged teeth. The natural appearance of tooth-colored fillings makes them the best option to fix damaged teeth. Also, the placement procedure allows us to preserve the greatest amount of dental structure.
Dentures & Partials
For advanced tooth loss, we create tooth replacement prosthetics by combining multiple replacement teeth with a gum-colored base. The partial denture base is made to fit snuggly between the remaining healthy teeth filling in the gaps. They are held in position with metal clasps attached to natural teeth. A full denture is formed to fit closely against the gum line creating suction that holds the prosthetic in position. If you’d like a denture with improved stability, we also offer dental implant retained prosthetics.
When the interior part of the tooth is damaged or decayed, a root canal may be necessary. This treatment removes the inner, pulp, layer of the tooth where the nerve is housed. Without treatment, decay and damage that accesses the nerve can lead to painful toothache. Once we’ve removed the pulp from the tooth, we refill the interior with a similar substance. Then, we reseal the tooth, and in most cases attach a dental crown for added strength and protection.
At most times, restorative dentistry services strive to retain natural dental structures. However, there are some situations where removing a damaged or decayed tooth may actually be the best solution to protect a patient’s oral health. In these cases, we’ll be happy to offer safe, effective tooth extraction in our office. We will do our utmost to help you maintain your natural dental structures, but if you do need a tooth extracted, we can also help you find the right tooth replacement solutions.
