When your teeth are missing, it greatly affects your smile. At the same time, the missing tooth has the potential to negatively affect your oral hygiene because of unprotected gum exposure. Dental bridges are one of many options aimed at improving the appearance and function of your teeth by replacing the missing tooth or teeth. During your exam, we will discuss whether or not dental bridges are right for you.request an appointment
Cracked Tooth Repair
Cracked teeth can cause a variety of symptoms including pain while chewing, temperature sensitivities, and the release of biting pressure. It’s common for pain to come and go, which can make diagnosing the cause difficult.
While you chew, cracked pieces of your tooth move, causing the pulp within the tooth may become irritated. When biting pressure is released, the crack can close quickly resulting in sharp pain. If left untreated, the pulp will eventually become damaged and the tooth will constantly hurt, even when you are not chewing.
There are different types of cracks, and each should be evaluated to prevent tooth loss and infection.
Implant Crowns offers cutting-edge dental services specializing in implant crowns, a revolutionary solution for individuals with missing or severely damaged teeth. Our expert team utilizes advanced technology and techniques to provide durable and aesthetically pleasing results.
The process begins with the placement of a titanium implant, which acts as an artificial tooth root, ensuring stability and longevity. Through a process called osseointegration, the implant fuses with the jawbone, creating a strong foundation. Once the implant has integrated, a custom-designed dental crown is attached, replicating the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
Our experienced dental professionals work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan, taking into account your unique dental needs and desired outcomes. With precise implant placement and meticulous attention to detail, we strive to achieve optimal results.
Dental fillings are used to fill cavities and repair cracked or broken teeth. Fillings can be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam, but is most commonly done with materials called composite resin fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth.
Additional steps are required for tooth-colored fillings because it requires multiple layers and a special light to dry and harden the area around the filling.
To fill a tooth, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the area around the tooth. A laser or air abrasion instrument will be used to remove the decayed area and your dentist will prepare the space for the filling by cleaning the cavity of bacteria and debris. In some cases, your dentist may apply a liner for your tooth called a glass ionomer to help protect the tooth and nerve before the tooth is filled. After your filling is complete, most dentists will polish the tooth to make it feel smooth and natural.
The procedure can vary in time and cost depending on the extent of the damage to the tooth. If you have any questions about fillings, please call our office today.
A tooth can lose its normal shape and size for a variety of reasons. A crown covers your tooth to help restore its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to make teeth stronger and look better.
Crowns have a variety of uses. In some cases that require a large filling, there isn’t enough tooth remaining to keep the filling in place. A crown can strengthen the tooth and hold the filling. Crowns can also protect teeth that are weak, or help fix ones that are broken. Discolored or misshaped teeth can be covered by a crown, as can dental implants.
Your dentist may recommend a crown for any of the reasons, among many others. Crowns play an important role in dental health, and if you are in need of one, please contact our office today.
Bridges can solve the issue of missing teeth. Similar to dentures, bridges replace gaps in your smile with artificial teeth. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials including porcelain, gold, and alloys. With so many options, it is important to consult with your dentist about which type of bridge is best for you.
You should always keep your current teeth healthy and strong, but a bridge can help if you do lose teeth. Contact us today to discuss which bridge might be right for you.
