Restorative Dentistry

Restorative Dentistry

We offer state-of-the-art restorative care. We know that even when you do everything right, something can go wrong. If you are suffering from a dental problem, we are here to help with our many restorative dentistry options. Modern technology combined with the in-depth experience of our clinical team can assure you of a successful & long-lasting result. Whether the cause is accident or disease, we can restore your smile.

Our Restorative Dentistry Services Include:

Crowns

Crowns cover & support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. They can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown, also called a cap, is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped as well, or to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger & improve its appearance.

There are several types of crowns, including porcelain, ceramic, resin & metal alloys. The material used can be altered to match the color of your teeth. Our primary concern is keeping your smile bright & healthy, so ask Comfort Family Dental which type is right for you!

Getting a crown takes two steps: First, we prepare the tooth by taking x-rays & pictures to check the surrounding bone & tissue & filing down the tooth to make room for the crown. Then the crown is made & cemented into place.

A crown acts the same way as a tooth, so after your crowns are placed, you should treat it the same way as well. Continue to brush & floss regularly & see your dentist for regular checkups!

Dental & Restorative Implants

Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone & a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge might). This restorative dentistry treatment can be finished in three to five visits over the space of about four to 12 months.

Dentures

If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether you need partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to improve the look of your smile but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you had never lost your teeth, dentures also protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur & cause a more aged appearance. Dentures can also improve your speech. Denture maintenance combined with a regular regimen of proper brushing can guarantee you’ll lead a more comfortable & healthy life.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

We understand that some patients may have concerns about whether mercury amalgam (silver) fillings are hazardous to their health. At Comfort Family Dental, we believe that the overall health & peace of mind of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use new & advanced tooth fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no mercury.

The major advantage of offering mercury-free tooth fillings is that we are able to offer you more subtle, flattering options for fillings. With these new materials, getting a filling no longer means your friends & family see a flash of metal when you smile or open your mouth. Our tooth-colored or white tooth fillings are essentially indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

While our biggest concern is the health & function of your teeth, we are proud to offer tooth filling options that do not affect the aesthetics of your smile.
