Keep your smile feeling and functioning at its absolute best with restorative dentistry. From simple procedures like dental fillings, to more complex solutions like dental prosthetics and root canal therapy, restorative dentistry aims to revitalize decayed or damaged teeth. With our comprehensive restorative care, you can take back your overall oral health so you can eat, laugh, and smile with confidence.
Cavities are one of the most common oral diseases, so it's imperative we tackle them as soon as they begin to compromise the health and wellness of your teeth. When left untreated, they can cause serious discomfort and may require more invasive procedures to alleviate. Thanks to fillings, your dentist in Bankers Hill can halt the progression of tooth decay in a single visit. By stopping by for your regular 6-month cleaning and checkup, you can prevent new cavities from forming in the first place.
If you're dealing with cracked or damaged, dental crowns can restore your smile! Crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that protect your tooth's natural root and revitalize the function of your bite. If you've received a root canal or dental implant, a crown can also be used to bring back the health of your tooth. Since dental crowns can be made from many materials, they are ideal for a variety of restorative and cosmetic applications, so you can smile with confidence.
Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.
There's no need to keep covering up your mouth if a missing tooth is leaving a gap in your smile. With a dental bridge, the space left behind by one, or several, missing teeth can be permanently covered. The bridge is attached to your teeth on either side of the gap, so it won't slide around when you eat or speak. Your bridge also won't stand out from the rest of your smile —it can be color-matched to blend with your other teeth. Keep your teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of bone loss and problems with your bite by asking your cosmetic dentist in Bankers Hill about a bridge. Schedule a consultation today to see if a dental bridge can help you complete your smile!
Dentures are a removable, affordable solution that can complete your smile after missing one or all of your natural teeth. To ensure a natural look and feel, most dentures are made of a combination of acrylic and metal and are custom-crafted for a comfortable fit. Looking to see if dentures are right for you? Schedule a consultation to find out if a set of full or partial dentures can restore your bite. It's about time you got back to living your life with a smile.
Missing just a few teeth? Partial dentures may be the right choice for you. Partial dentures look natural, are removable, and can be a great solution to restoring the function of your teeth and jaw. Make the first step in restoring your smile by booking a consultation.
Dental implants can be a bit of a confusing procedure. That's because it comes in two parts: the implant and the dental crown. The main thing to remember is that one cannot go without the other. Implants are needed to replace a tooth's root, while dental crowns, bridges, or dentures replace the part you can actually see (your smile). To restore your smile to its full potential and beauty, implant restorations are essential. You deserve to have a set of teeth that you feel comfortable in and we are experts in keeping you smiling for decades to come.
Sometimes, tooth decay is too extensive to be treated with a dental filling, but not extensive enough to require a crown. In cases like this, dental inlays or onlays can be an effective solution. Dental inlays are used to restore the grooves between the cusps of a tooth, while onlays cover the entire chewing surface of the tooth. Both dental inlays and onlays can be made from a variety of materials, including tooth-colored composite to improve the look and function of your smile.
