Traditional Crowns & Bridges
When it comes to repairing damaged teeth and replacing missing teeth, two of the most time-tested and trusted methods involve dental crowns and bridges. These have been used for generations because they are excellent at restoring a tooth’s strength and appearance at the same time. With just two easy visits, we can rebuild your smile and restore your teeth’s function.
Tooth-colored fillings are used to repair teeth that have been damaged slightly by decay or trauma. Rather than using silver-colored amalgam, these fillings are made of a composite resin. This material is strong and malleable, plus it can be specially shaded to perfectly match the color of your surrounding enamel, offering you a clinical and cosmetic solution with just one visit. It also bonds directly to your teeth, meaning more of your tooth’s natural strength will be preserved while it’s being placed, which will increase its longevity.
When it comes to replacing a large number of missing teeth, dentures are one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to do it. The dentures of today are much more comfortable and natural looking than the ones from the past; but the end result is still a fully restored smile.
Partial dentures can be used to replace missing teeth that are located throughout the mouth, while a full denture can replace an entire row of missing teeth. For a more permanent solution, they can even be held in place with dental implants.
When it comes to relieving severe dental pain and saving teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted, root canals are actually one of the best tools we have available. Thanks to modern dentistry, it’s now practically painless. If you’re suffering from a severe toothache, this should be music to your ears.
While our number one priority is to always preserve your natural teeth, sometimes the best course involves extracting them.
Extractions may be necessary for the following reasons:
- To replace a tooth that is too damaged to be restored
- To make room for orthodontic treatment
- To make room for dentures
- To replace a damaged tooth with a dental implant
- To remove impacted/infected wisdom teeth
In any case, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you are comfortable. We can even offer various forms of sedation so that you can be perfectly relaxed.
