Do you have chipped or discolored teeth? Are there silver fillings that are making your teeth look darker than they should? Is your alignment what you want it to be? Over the years, teeth can suffer damage from everyday life, accidents, injuries, illness and a variety of situations. Keeping your teeth healthy and a positive self-esteem begins with dental restoration services. Routine cleanings, as well as brushing and flossing, will help to eliminate an excessive amount of bacteria and plaque from building up on your teeth and gums. Early detection of a cavity is important so a tooth doesn’t become infected. Missing teeth should be replaced as quickly as possible so the other teeth don’t shift.
Crowns, veneers, and fillings are only a few types of services that dental restoration services can provide. A crown is usually installed over a tooth that has been filled several times or damaged. Impressions will be taken of the existing tooth’s size and shape before a crown is created. The dentist will remove a portion of the tooth and any remaining filling to safely install a crown. It will be the same color, size and shape of the tooth that was previously removed. Some crowns can be created and made all on the same day. Veneers are a great option for teeth that are discolored, chipped or not the same size as the other teeth. It’s a small piece of porcelain that is applied to the front of the tooth and looks completely natural.
Dental implants are a wonderful alternative to dentures and bridges. They are a permanent solution for a missing tooth and can be cared for in the same way as a natural one. This type of treatment takes two to three visits. A dentist will make a tiny opening in the gums and jawbone where the tooth is missing. They will insert a small titanium post and sometimes a temporary crown. After healing is complete, a patient will return to have a permanent crown installed on the post. It’s a permanent solution and no one will ever know it’s not a natural tooth.
