What are the restorative dentistry procedures we offer?
DENTAL CROWNS | If you have a tooth that is damaged, cracked, chipped, broken, misshapen, discolored, or if you have a tooth that has too much dental work and is in danger of becoming infected, we can place a tooth crown to cap the top of that tooth. A dental crown can look just like your natural tooth. In order to achieve this we have create a mold of your mouth and send the information to a lab that then prepares the dental crown. We also use restorative dentistry procedures to make sure the dental crown is the right shade to match your other teeth. Nobody will ever know the dental crown isn’t your natural tooth. A dental crown requires no extra care–just perform your normal dental hygiene of brushing and flossing and visit your dentist regularly. A dental crown can also top a dental implant to complete the tooth root and tooth restoration.
DENTAL BRIDGE | Many patients around Myers Park ask us how a dental bridge differs from a crown. If you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row, one restorative dentistry procedure that is effective is a dental bridge. A dental bridge actually bridges over the gap in your gums. The dental bridge is connected on each side by a dental crown. The dental crown can either top two of your existing teeth with the dental bridge between the dental crowns. Or the dental bridge can bridge the gap between two dental crowns that top dental implants on each side of the gap.
DENTAL IMPLANTS | If you are missing teeth, one of the most amazing restorative dentistry procedures around is dental implants. A dental implants is similar to a dental bridge, in that it replaces missing teeth. However, a dental implant places a small titanium rod into your gums and jawbone instead of anchoring to adjacent teeth. After the rod heals and fuses with the jawbone (3-6 months), we place a dental crown on the implant. The implant plus the crown together form a “new” tooth root and tooth that is remarkably sturdy and looks, feels and functions like your natural tooth.
DENTURES | If you are missing many or all of your teeth, we offer a variety of denture options. Restoration dentistry offers two main denture options, the dentures can be traditional or permanent; which are secured permanently to dental implants. Our dentures look like natural teeth, so you can feel comfortable smiling, laughing and getting your photo taken.
