Are your front teeth worn, damaged, or missing entirely? Find the restorative solution that fits perfectly
Our teeth connect our inner and outer selves. They help us express who we are, and speak our thoughts and feelings. And your smile is one of the first things a new acquaintance notices, forming the foundation of their first impression. We depend on our teeth for so much – but they’re not always up to the task. Time and physical damage wear away our tooth structure, and leave behind a smile that’s not fully representing who you are.
Restorative dentistry will help you take advantage of your full potential. We’ll find a way to rebuild your teeth that is in line with your personal needs, and results in the smile that you’ve been missing. Full mouth reconstruction typically takes advantage of a group of procedures, which work together to restore your teeth. There’s no way to know which treatments will be best for you until you’ve had a consultation with a restorative dentist – but we can offer some clues as to what might be involved.
Dental Restorations for Your Smile
Find the issue that’s bothering you the most to learn more about which treatments are ideal.
- Cracks or chips – Your enamel is tough, but not always tough enough. If you’ve been clenching or grinding your teeth, or have experienced physical trauma, it’s common for enamel to crack or chip. Depending on the tooth in question, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or porcelain crowns will encompass the damage tooth and strengthen it overall.
- Worn enamel – Bruxism also has an impact on your enamel’s size and shape. Long-term grinding will create flat surfaces on the occlusal areas of your teeth and throw off the balance of your smile. Composite bonding, veneers, or crowns will help restore your teeth.
- Missing tooth/teeth – If you’ve experienced gum disease or an abscess, you may have lost a tooth in the process. While external restorations like a bridge or partial will replace the tooth, we also offer dental implants for added stability and heightened function.
- Stains – Worn enamel may show the yellow layer of dentin beneath, or years of external stains may build up to yellow your smile. If your stains are extrinsic, teeth whitening will correct the issue, and if they’re intrinsic, bonding or veneers will create a brighter layer over your teeth.
- Sensitivity – This is more of a functional concern than an aesthetic one, but you’ll find that improving sensitivity also benefits your smile’s appearance. If your tooth roots have become exposed by receding gums, or your enamel is thin and weak, protecting those areas with veneers, bonding, or crowns will reduce twinges and brighten your smile.
