Whether due to natural wear and tear, dental decay, or an unlucky accident, almost everyone will need some restorative dentistry at one point in their lives. Fortunately, for people dealing with chipped, damaged, decayed, or even missing teeth, our team can provide custom-made restorations to make even the most compromised smile look like new. If you’re ready to have a smile you’re proud to show off again, just give us a call, and we’ll have exactly what you need.
Dental crowns and bridges are two of the most tried and true treatments in all of dentistry, and with them, the Crossroads Family Dentistry team can repair a large cavity, put a broken tooth back together, and even replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Altogether, it takes just two appointments to have a custom crown or bridge designed and placed, and with the proper maintenance, it can easily last for decades to come.
When it comes to repairing small cavities and slightly damaged teeth, tooth-colored fillings are the way to go. They are made of a composite resin material that our team can color-match to a patient’s enamel so it’s practically invisible within the mouth. Plus, it forms a much stronger bond to the enamel compared to a traditional filling, meaning you get a tooth that not only looks great but can be trusted to last as well.
The traditional method for creating crowns requires at least two dental appointments. Thanks to our CEREC machine, though, we can provide you with a beautiful, permanent new crown in just one visit to our office. We use advanced technology to scan your teeth — no messy impressions are necessary — and then an in-office ceramic milling unit carves your new crown out of high-quality materials. The process is fast, efficient, and spares you from having to deal with a temporary crown.
Dealing with multiple missing teeth every day can be a real burden, which is why we’re happy to help patients in this situation by offering full and partial dentures made just for them. With partial dentures, we can fill in the gaps left by missing teeth throughout the mouth, and with full dentures, we can instantly replace an entire row. For an even better hold and appearance, we can also offer our patients implant-retained dentures.
As most of us know, the wisdom teeth actually aren’t that wise, so more often than not, they need to be removed. Why? Because these third molars more often simply don’t fit in the modern human jaw, causing them to bring on crowding, pain, and even an infection when they try to erupt. Many times, we can safely remove these teeth right in our office so you won’t have to visit an outside specialist, and we’ll do our best to keep an eye on them so we can remove them before you experience any major issues.
