Cavities, cracks, and wear – oh my!
We work every day to restore smiles by treating these conditions. Fixing teeth that are infected, broken, and/or worn is the cornerstone to building a healthy mouth. There is a misconception that only teeth in pain need to be fixed. In reality, all diseases of the teeth will eventually lead to pain and discomfort. But fixing them early is frequently more successful, less invasive, and less expensive than fixing a tooth that has progressed to the point of pain.
Let’s explore ways we can help you fix your teeth.
Crowns & Veneers
Dental crowns are permanent restorations that replace the crown of the tooth by fitting over the remaining natural tooth structure. A crown, which is sometimes called a “cap,” is typically made of ceramic or metal, and it is permanently bonded to the natural tooth structure.
Composite Tooth Fillings
A composite filling is a tooth colored filling that restores a tooth to its ideal color and shape. With a composite filling, issues such as decay, cracks, misshapen teeth, and excessive tooth wear can be corrected in just one visit!
An infected tooth can be very painful. Root canal treatment involves removing the infected tooth tissue, disinfecting the internal aspect of the tooth, and allowing the tooth to be restored. This will resolve pain and allow you to keep your tooth for many years to come.
Whitening your teeth is a wonderful, non-invasive, and relatively inexpensive way to improve your smile! There are many ways to whiten your teeth, including toothpastes, over-the-counter gels, strips, and trays.
