As a dental practice, we strive to give our patients the best information on oral health and provide optimum dental care to prevent any type of tooth decay, tooth loss, or damage. However, there are times where this simply can’t be avoided.
That is why we offer restorative dentistry. It is a specific branch of dentistry that is focused on restoring not only the health of your smile after tooth decay, loss, or damage but the function as well. Every patient’s need in restoring their smile can be different, so finding a treatment that works specifically for you that will restore both your confidence and function in your smile is important.
Put A Crown on It
If you have a tooth that has become damaged or severely decayed and other dental procedures such as filings don’t solve the issue, a crown could be the solution for you. Crowns do exactly what the name implies. They fit over your tooth like a cap and not only strengthen your natural tooth but make them look better at the same time.
Your crown will be fitted over your entire tooth, starting from the gumline to ensure that your tooth looks as natural as popular. The function of your teeth as well as the confidence of your smile is always in our minds.
Dental crowns can be made of materials including gold, porcelain, or zirconia. Porcelain crowns are always popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. And dental crowns can also help with other dental restorations as well including dental bridges.
Dental Bridges for Restoring Smile
A dental bridge can be a great restorative dental option for patients that are missing multiple teeth in a row. They help bridge the gap anywhere in your mouth where you may be missing teeth.
When you and your dental team decide to have a dental bridge placed, it will be anchored on either side by two dental crowns. These will hold the bridge in place so that your bridge is secure and does not move out of place. Bridges are a dental restoration that will last you years with proper care.
Many times patients may think that missing teeth are just a cosmetic issue and aren’t something that needs to be addressed if it doesn’t greatly affect them. But it is much more than that. Missing teeth can cause issues with your speech, ability to chew properly, and can even cause other teeth to start to move out of position. Dental bridges can help solve these problems.
Restoring With Dentures and Partials
If you find yourself with multiple missing teeth and are looking for a solution that isn’t permanently affixed to your mouth, then a denture solution could work for you. Dentures are removable oral appliances that can help act as a replacement for your missing teeth due to oral diseases, decay, or other health issues.
There are multiple options for dentures depending on your needs. If you are only missing a few teeth and still have natural teeth remaining, you may only need partial dentures. These will have a framework that attaches to your natural teeth and can be removed when needed.
If you have very few or no natural teeth remaining, then a full set of dentures for either both arches or a single arch may be necessary. Both denture options are removable and custom fit so your dentures will sit securely and comfortably in your mouth.
