Restorative Dentistry in Richardson, TX
Some dental issues go beyond regular cleaning and checkups. If you have missing teeth, a cracked tooth, a broken tooth, or other types of damaged teeth, you may be in need of restorative dentistry treatment. Richardson dentist, Dr. Kessner, is a well-trained dentist, and he and his staff offer several options, so you can find what fits best for you!
If you have missing teeth and are looking for a permanent solution, dental implants may be a great option for you! A dental implant is a metal post placed in your jaw, which fuses to the bone and creates a stronger, healthier jaw. The post is then covered with a crown or other covering, which functions just like any other tooth.
Another remedy for missing teeth is a device called a dental bridge. Rather than placing a post in your jaw, a bridge is formed by two caps being placed on the teeth on either side of a gap. A replacement tooth is then set in the gap by attaching to the two caps, restoring that full, glowing smile you’ve wanted.
If you have multiple teeth missing, implants can also provide a great support for dentures. Implants are placed normally, and a set of dentures is then fused to them so they function just like your normal teeth would. This allows you to eat and speak normally, and your new dentures can be cleaned with normal brushing, flossing, and regular visits for cleaning.
Chipped and broken teeth not only affect how your teeth look but are more prone to infection and further dental problems. With dental crowns, you can avoid such problems and restore that beautiful smile you once had. Dental crowns act as both a protective covering for your teeth and function just like a normal tooth, so you can live your life exactly how you’d like.
Chipped and damaged teeth often need to be restored quickly, so there is little to no chance of infection. Tooth-colored fillings can be set quickly, so you don’t have to worry about further damage to your dental health. Also, they’re less noticeable, since they’re made to match the shade of your teeth, so you can share your newly-restored smile with confidence!
