Age, infection, injury, and decay can all lead to damaged or missing teeth. Thankfully, our team has a variety of options available to restore your teeth back to their normal shape, appearance, and function. Our top priority is providing you with comfortable, high-quality care. If you need restorative dental care, we promise to discuss all treatment options and work with you to create a minimally invasive treatment plan. Here are some of the ways we can restore your smile.
Plaque naturally accumulates on your teeth, and the bacteria within it cause tooth decay. If left untreated, the decay will worsen, potentially leading to the need for a root canal or extraction. Fortunately, we can restore your teeth with composite fillings.In addition to repairing damage caused by decay, composite fillings can be used to repair broken, cracked, and worn teeth. And since they are tooth-colored, they’ll blend in with the rest of your tooth.
Getting a composite filling is a quick and easy procedure. We’ll first use anesthetic to numb the area. Then, we’ll isolate your tooth from saliva to keep it dry. Next, we’ll remove the decayed portion of your tooth and place a bonding agent in the opening. After that, we’ll use a special light to cure the bonding agent. Then, we’ll add, shape, and cure the composite resin. Finally, we’ll polish your filling, and you’re done!
Dental implants are an excellent option for restoring a natural look to your smile and improving your comfort, speech, function, and dental health. They can even help prevent future bone decay. We always stay up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques, and many of our patients are pleasantly surprised by how comfortable, relaxed, and stress-free their experience with dental implants can be.
When you opt for a dental implant, a small titanium cylinder is surgically placed into your jaw. As your bone heals, it will grow around the implant, allowing it to function as an artificial tooth root. We’ll take care to ensure you are comfortable throughout the entire process.
Once you have healed, you have several options for restorations. A crown is a great option for any number of teeth. It’s placed over your implant and looks and functions like your natural tooth. However, if you are missing multiple teeth, you may choose to have implant-supported dentures or bridges. These can be removable or permanent. Talk to your dentist about which option is best for you.
Dental implants aren’t right for everyone. Your doctor will factor in your anatomy, the health of your bones and gums, and any health problems you may have before recommending treatment.
Dentures offer a custom-made cosmetic and functional solution to tooth loss. If you need dentures, our dentist will take impressions of your mouth and create a model that fits your needs. The model will then be sent to a lab that produces your permanent dentures. Finally, when your dentures come in, we’ll ensure they fit properly and make any necessary adjustments.
You have several options for dentures, including partial, immediate full, and conventional full dentures. Partial dentures work as a replacement for one or more teeth, while full dentures replace all your upper or lower teeth. If you need to have a few remaining teeth extracted, immediate full dentures are an excellent solution since they act as a bandage while your gums heal.
