If you are missing teeth, restorative dentistry provides treatment options that can help you get your smile back on track. Some of the restorative dentistry options available for those with missing teeth and other dental issues include:
- Tooth Crown – A tooth crown is a special protective cap – usually made of high quality porcelain – used to help repair teeth with cosmetic or functional issues, as well as used to help protect teeth that require some additional help. Some of the issues that a tooth crown can be used for include broken teeth, root canal therapy (to protect the tooth afterwards), chipped teeth, dental bridges with tooth crowns, dental implants, and even more.
- Root Canal Therapy – If one of your teeth has become deeply infected, in many situations a root canal may be the form of restorative dentistry treatment that can help your oral health get back to the standard you desire. Root canal therapy involves first removing infected tissue from the tooth, then cleaning it thoroughly and sealing the tooth to prevent further problems. In most situations, a beautiful tooth crown is used to help protect your treated tooth for the years to come.
- Dental Bridges – A dental bridge is a fantastic restorative dentistry option for filling in the gap caused by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are made to look like natural teeth and are highly functional, helping restore your ability to eat the foods you love and smile naturally. In most cases dental bridges are anchored on either side by beautiful natural looking tooth crowns.
- Dental Implants – In the past, having a missing tooth meant you would either need to leave a gap in your smile, or fill it in with a dental bridge or other device. Now, using dental implants your smile can receive a permanent missing teeth replacement solution. A dental implant is a metal post anchored into the jawbone that provides an anchoring point for a dental device such as a dental crown or denture. This makes it so that we can create “new” teeth where teeth have gone missing, and provide permanent mass tooth replacement solutions.
