Dental decay causes cavities by destroying healthy tooth structure. Fillings are recommended to repair and replace the lost surfaces.
When teeth are chipped or defective, dental bonding techniques can easily restore teeth to their esthetic value in the arch.
Inlays and Onlays
A dental inlay is an indirect dental restoration made of solid dental materials that is bonded within the tooth’s outer walls. An onlay provides more coverage and involves replacing biting cusps.
Crown and Bridge
When extensive tooth structure is damaged, a crown is recommended for more complete coverage and function. In the absence of teeth, bridges can be fabricated to serve as a replacement option.
A veneer is a thin porcelain shell that is bonded to your tooth to provide an aesthetic result. These cosmetic procedures require very minimal tooth reduction or none at all.
Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth is infected or the nerve is inflamed, pulp therapy is required to save your tooth. Root canal therapy involves using instruments and antibacterial cleaning agents to clean out the canals that house the nerves and seal them with rubber like biocompatible materials.
When teeth are badly decayed and unable to be saved, it is necessary to remove them from the dental arch. Some teeth such as molar teeth are impacted or locked in the bone and soft tissue. These teeth may need to be extracted with surgical procedures.
A dental implant is the artificial replacement of the dental root. These fixed structures provide excellent foundation for fixed and removable replacement teeth that can match your existing teeth.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. Whether you have lost several or all teeth from trauma, gum disease, or decay, there are a variety of partial or complete denture options.
