Restorative Dentistry Services
We offer exceptional restorative dentistry services to help you regain confidence in your smile. Whether you have a broken tooth and need a crown, or need to fill a space with a bridge, we can do it all for you. Once you have a restorative procedure done, it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene and avoid eating any hard or sticky food that could damage your dental work.
Whether you have missing or decaying teeth or other oral issues, we can remove or help alleviate any issues within the jawline and gum with dental crowns, bridges, and other dental solutions.
Some benefits of full-mouth restoration include:
- Improved dental health
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Mouth comfort
- Same-day solution
You can choose between a composite resin or porcelain material for your veneers. Porcelain lasts for a long time, is stain resistant, requires less enamel removal than crowns, and has a natural appearance. Composite resin veneers are a less costly option and require fewer trips to the dentist. However, they don’t last as long as porcelain.
The cantilever bridge is for when there is only an existing tooth on one side of the missing space. It is fairly rare because it adds too much force to the teeth in the back of the mouth and causes more harm than good. Another type of bridge is a Maryland bridge, with either porcelain or metal wings to one side of the bridge. Dental bridges can align your smile, help you speak and chew properly, and maintain your face’s shape.
Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, ceramic, resin, and gold, but whatever the material, we ensure its color and shape match the rest of your teeth. We take away the outer portion of your tooth for your initial visit to create space for the crown. We then create an impression of your teeth to design the crown. You will get a temporary crown to wear until your permanent one is ready. When the crown is perfectly fitted, we will attach it with cement.
Dental crowns can break under pressure, and the tooth underneath can get cavities. If you want to prevent decay or damage, you have to take care of your crown. Other than maintaining proper oral hygiene, you should avoid chewy or hard foods that can cause damage.
