By visiting our dental office, you can learn more about tooth restoration services that can change your smile. Today, there are modern ways to repair teeth with a variety of restorations. In the past, it could require multiple dental office visits to have a restoration designed and applied to a tooth, but today, you can often have restorations with only one office visit. First, our dentist will collect X-rays of your mouth to determine if you have any dental health issues that might include having gum disease or tooth decay. Improving the health of your soft oral tissues and your teeth is imperative, and in some cases, these services will also restore the appearance of your gums and teeth. The goal of restorative dentistry is to make sure that you have functional teeth and gums in addition to having an attractive smile. Each patient will require different restorative dental services to achieve these goals.
Veneers or Dental Bonding
At our dental office, we can begin to restore your smile by performing a thorough cleaning of your teeth to remove a buildup of plaque. This can improve the appearance of your teeth along with preventing gingivitis. If you have gum disease, then immediate treatment is vital to get rid of the bacteria that can infect the roots of your teeth or the underlying alveolar bones. You may need to take antibiotics, or we can perform a procedure to remove the diseased tissue. If you have severe stains on your teeth, then we can remove these discolorations with a teeth-whitening process. After having your teeth whitened, if you still have a stain on a tooth, then it is possible for our dentist to restore its appearance with a bonding process or a dental veneer. With bonding, we mix a composite resin that will match the color of the tooth, and our dentist applies it to the tooth, making sure to polish it to give the tooth a natural appearance. When you need a veneer, this thin restoration is made by a laboratory technician, and our dentist attaches it to the front of the tooth with a waterproof resin.
Replace Your Missing Teeth
We can also mix a composite resin that is suitable for filling cavities, or our dentist can use a computer software program to order inlays and onlays that will repair a decayed tooth. If you have a deep cavity, then our dentist can restore it by performing a root canal procedure before placing a dental crown over the tooth. This will create a tooth that is strong enough for chewing food but that will also have an attractive appearance. We can determine what type of tooth restoration is best for your needs. Our dentist can make a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth, or you might prefer having dental implants inserted directly into your gums.
