Damaged teeth are always more difficult to deal with. Even if you don’t necessarily feel pain throughout the day, teeth sensitivity is incredibly common when the enamel is eroded or cavities are present. Plus, not getting them repaired will only result in future damage later, as well as higher restorative costs. Thankfully, Dr. Johnson offers many solutions to damaged teeth, including crowns, tooth-colored fillings, and full/partial dentures! Give us a call to get your smile restored!
Dental crowns are considered to be one of the most commonly used restorations offered in dentistry, largely because of their many functions. If your tooth is damaged due to injury or because of extensive decay, a crown can easily restore its function and appearance. We also use crowns to build more complex restorations like fixed bridges. These work to not only restore teeth but replace missing teeth as well in the long-term. With regular oral hygiene, both restorations should last many years without issue.
In the past, amalgam fillings were the standard option for dental fillings because of their durability. However, amalgam is not the most aesthetically pleasing material for most patients, and neither is the idea of having a mouth full of metal. That’s why our dental office uses composite resin, a mixture made from glass and plastic, to restore damaged teeth. Treatment only takes one appointment to complete, does not sacrifice durability, and blends in perfectly with your existing tooth!
Extensive tooth loss affects millions of Americans every day, putting a damper on their willingness to smile, their self-confidence, and their ability to eat foods they enjoy. But tooth loss doesn’t have to be a reality with the help of full and partial dentures available at our dental office! Both offer affordable solutions to replace many teeth at a time. Plus, the dentures of today are more natural-looking than ever before. Our dental office will make sure every aspect of your denture is just right for you, from the way it fits to its appearance.
