Restorative Dentistry addresses the issues that make eating and smiling difficult. Dental pain, tooth loss, and traumatic injury are some of the reasons that Restorative Dentistry might be right for you. These problems, if ignored, can lead to other major health issues and symptoms including headaches, infections, additional tooth loss, heart disease, and more.
If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, and if properly maintained, can last a lifetime!
Dentures & Partials
Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed.
A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy is a process used to remove decayed dental pulp (also known as the root). Once the decay is removed and cleaned, the remaining healthy root is left to support the tooth. A crown is then placed to prevent bacteria from entering the tooth.
Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay. We can even place a crown in one visit!
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that covers the front of teeth to hide imperfection like discoloration, chips, and gaps to improve the aesthetic beauty of your teeth and protect structural damage to the tooth.
