Dental fillings are the best way to repair decayed teeth. If you have one or more cavities, Dr. V will typically recommend composite fillings. These fillings are made from a durable, strong, and natural-looking blend of dental resin and glass particles. With a filling, you can halt the progression of tooth decay, restore your smile, and treat tooth sensitivity.
With a root canal, you can save an infected tooth. Tooth infections are typically either caused by extensive, untreated tooth decay that damages the outer layer of a tooth, or by dental trauma that seriously cracks or damages a tooth. In this procedure, Dr. V will open up your tooth, clean out the inside, fill up the tooth, and cover it with a dental crown. This treats the infection, preserves your tooth, and also eliminates painful toothaches.
Dental crowns or “caps” are tooth-shaped shells of porcelain. They are designed to fit over your natural tooth, replacing it all the way down to your gum line. Porcelain dental crowns are matched to the color of your teeth, and they look, feel, and function just like a “real” tooth. Crowns are usually recommended to treat deep cavities, to repair cracked and damaged teeth, and to protect teeth after root canal therapy.
A dental bridge uses two crowns that attach to healthy “abutment teeth” on either side of a gap in your smile. Between these crowns, one or more “pontics” (false teeth) are suspended, “bridging” the gap. Bridges are usually used to treat a row of 1-2 missing teeth. They're a convenient and natural-looking option for anyone who is missing one or more of their natural teeth.
Dentures are a very cost-effective way to replace your missing teeth. Partial dentures are built to replace several missing teeth, and consist of multiple false teeth that are built into a metal and plastic framework. This framework snaps onto your remaining teeth, holding your partial dentures in place.
Full dentures are a bit different. They replace the upper, lower, or both rows of teeth with a full set of natural-looking, functional false teeth. Full dentures require you to have all of your remaining teeth extracted, even if they're healthy. Because of this, they are usually only recommended if you have extensive oral health issues.
