Restorative Care & Services
If you have teeth that are damaged, decayed, discolored, or missing, you may require restorative dental treatments. We offer a wide range of restorative care options including:
- Tooth colored fillings
- Dental crowns & bridges
- Root canal treatment
If you have damaged or broken teeth, Dr. Dean may recommend dental crowns as a treatment option. A dental crown is used to cover or cap a tooth to restore its strength and structure. We offer a wide variety of crowns to help protect your teeth and restore the beautiful appearance of your smile.
Dental bridges are used to “bridge” gaps created from missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns attached to adjacent teeth, which work to secure a false tooth that is placed between them. Bridges help to make sure that replacement teeth stay in place and have a very natural look and feel.
Root canal treatment
A root canal treatment can be required if the nerve within the root of a tooth becomes damaged from decay or injury. During this treatment, the infected pulp is removed from the tooth and the canal is then sealed. The opening into the canal is then filled or the tooth is reinforced with a crown. This treatment helps to preserve as much of the original tooth as possible so that your smile can maintain its natural appearance.
Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. Dentures are able to be removed for cleaning and at night for sleeping. Dentures can improve the appearance of your smile and help you retain full functionality of your teeth.
