Why Restore Teeth?

Healthy teeth allow you to chew, bite, and speak properly and without complication. Even with a good oral hygiene routine and visiting our office every six months, teeth can still face decay, wear, infection, and other damage. Even a tiny chip or crack in your enamel that is not currently bothering you can develop into a more significant issue, potentially putting your dental and oral health at risk.

Treating these issues with professional restorations helps you protect your smile for years to come. Drs. Joseph Dougherty and Dr. Trenton Dunford offer many procedures to repair tooth enamel and remove decay and infection while also helping to restore the original strength of your teeth. Advancements in dental technology have made restorative treatment more cost-effective and less invasive, so renewing your oral health is more comprehensive than ever before!

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Teeth can become lost due to trauma, severe decay, and gum disease, or even genetics. It is important to replace missing teeth because when a tooth is missing, so are the tooth roots. Lack of stimulation from tooth roots can lead to jawbone weakening, also known as resorption. A resorbed jawbone can lead to other issues affecting natural facial features and speech.

Gaps left from missing teeth can cause neighboring teeth to shift towards the space. This can greatly affect your oral health if left untreated. Luckily, we provide many options to restore your smile after tooth loss!

With Dr. Joseph Doughtery and Dr.Trenton Dunford advanced tools, like intraoral cameras, show us what is going on in your smile and educate you about our findings in real-time. We also take digital x-rays of your teeth, gums, jaws, and neck for a more accurate diagnosis.

What Can Restorations Help Fix Missing Teeth?

When teeth are lost due to an accident, deep decay, orĀ gum disease, we can help restore them with beautiful and lifelike restorations. We proudly offer the following for restoring missing teeth:

  • Porcelain crowns> supported by one dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.
  • Fixed bridges to restore two or more teeth missing in a row. Bridges can either be held in place by two crowns that use neighboring teeth for support or can be attached to two implant posts for lasting security
  • Partial dentures for replacing multiple missing teeth in your smile.
  • Complete dentures, which can restore an entire smile. Complete dentures can be secured with 4-8 dental implants posts for permanent replacement.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implantsĀ are a permanent method for replacing missing teeth. Consisting of body-safe titanium posts, dental implants serve as artificial tooth roots when surgically placed into your jawbone. Because implants fuse naturally with living tissue and bone, they are the only tooth replacement solution that becomes a permanent part of your jawbone.

The process of receiving dental implants can take six months to a year to complete and often involves several visits. Once fusing and healing are complete, your final customized restoration is attached. Your restoration could be a custom crown, bridge, or denture.

What If My Teeth Need Repair?

Composite fillings:

Composite fillings consist of enamel-colored resin materials to help fill in small spaces where decay was removed. We also offer filling treatment as a reliable way to repair minor chips, cracks, fractures, and reshape tooth with mild forms of wear.

Crowns are a better choice for helping to restore teeth that have larger amounts of damage.. They work by encasing the entire structure of a tooth, protecting it from harm while also renewing function and appeal. In addition to strengthening and preserving a tooth, crowns can also improve shape and color.
