Rebuild Your Smile with Restorative Dentistry
At some point in your life, it is very likely that you will have a decayed or damaged tooth that needs to be repaired. This can be true even if you take good care of your teeth every day. Fortunately, we can fix any number of dental problems using our restorative services. Thanks to experience and advanced technology, we’ll be able to give your smile back everything it has lost and more. We’ll always take the time to make sure that your smile isn’t just strong, but that it looks natural and beautiful as well.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
I have used these treatments to literally rebuild thousands of smiles. They are two of the most reliable treatments in all of dentistry and they are the go-to way to repair a wide array of dental issues.
A dental crown can be used to repair a single tooth that has suffered damage, decay, or may need to be improved cosmetically. If you have a missing tooth or even a few in a row, they can even be used to support something called a dental bridge, which will fill in the gap in your smile with prosthetic teeth that will seamlessly blend with your natural teeth.
If you have a small cavity or slightly damaged tooth, I can quickly and easily fix it using a filling. Our practice only uses tooth-colored fillings because they are able to restore a tooth without leaving a large gray mark like a traditional metal-filling would. They are made of a composite resin material that can be specially shaded to perfectly match your natural tooth color. With this treatment, you won’t have to sacrifice your appearance to get the dental care that you need.
Complete & Partial Dentures
Dentures have been used for generations to help people replace numerous missing teeth, and thanks to advancements in the field of dental prosthetics, modern-day dentures are now smaller, sleeker, and more natural-looking than ever.
If you have teeth missing throughout your mouth, a partial denture can seamlessly fill in all the gaps. For an entire row of missing teeth we can make you a comfortable-fitting full denture.
If you have a severe tooth ache, a root canal can help provide complete relief. Despite their dubious reputation, they are actually one of the best tools we have to eliminate severe dental pain and rescue teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. We use them to treat teeth that have damage or an infection deep inside them where the sensitive nerve resides, and thanks to modern techniques, the experience will be no more painful than getting a filling.
While everything we do at our practice is intended to help preserve your natural smile, sometimes the best course of treatment may involve removing a tooth. This may be the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be restored
- Periodontal disease has damaged the bone supporting a tooth
- Room needs to be created for orthodontic treatment
- Room needs to be created for a denture
- A tooth is going to be replaced with a dental implant
In any case, I will handle your extraction with a light touch, and with the help of local anesthesia, I promise that you’ll barely feel anything at all.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
The third molars, more commonly known as the wisdom teeth, usually start to come in around the ages of 17-25. For most people, this can lead to problems because they simply don’t have enough room in their mouth for these teeth, which can lead to pain, crowding, and even an infection. We’ll keep an eye on your wisdom teeth so that we can extract them before they cause you any problems, and when it’s time for them to come out, we can handle the procedure right here in our office.
In order to replace missing teeth with dental implants, a patient needs to have an adequate amount of healthy jawbone. If the jaw isn’t strong enough as is, we can use a bone graft to fortify it so that implants can be safely and securely placed. Unlike most local practices, I won’t need to send you to a specialist to perform this procedure-- as my training allows me to make the process of rebuilding your smile as smooth and simple as possible.
For someone who has suffered an oral injury or hasn’t been to the dentist for many years, they may be able to benefit from reconstructive dentistry. This usually involves performing multiple procedures in order to address a variety of dental problems. These kinds of cases tend to require more planning and coordination than normal, but you can rely on our office to handle your entire reconstruction from start to finish. No matter what condition your teeth may be in now, you can trust that I will always be able to help you.
If you’re dealing with decayed, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth every day, you no longer need to! No matter your situation you can trust that we'll always be able to repair your smile. To start getting your complete smile back, simply contact our office today for an appointment.
