Your teeth undergo a significant amount of stress during your lifetime. Teeth can show this wear in a variety of ways including discoloration, chipping and cracking. Porcelain crowns can restore the look and function of your teeth. These crowns are made out of porcelain and can be shaded to match your existing teeth. Crowns are specifically fitted to restore tooth functionality and to enhance the appearance of your smile. If you have pain when chewing or temperature sensitivity ask dental office if crowns are right for you.
Having a missing tooth can create significant problems for your oral health if it isn’t corrected. Neighboring teeth can begin moving into the gap resulting in discomfort, pain and even more problems in the future. Porcelain bridges “bridge the gap” in your smile. A lifelike and functional bridge corrects your smile, restores your bite and alleviates your discomfort. Each porcelain bridge is created out of metal, alloys, or porcelain which utilizes surrounding teeth as a supportive structure. Porcelain bridges look and feel completely natural.
Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium directly into your jawbone. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a crown or a prosthetic tooth that is custom made just for you. A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry today and can be used to fix a single tooth or several at a time. You can even support an entire set of dentures on implants. At our dental office implants are sometimes used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the gap.
Partial dentures replace several of your teeth and prevents you from having a gap in your smile. It also maintains the integrity of your other teeth making sure they don’t move out of alignment. It also keeps the supportive structures of your smile engaged so that they don’t shrink away, which can dramatically alter your mouth’s appearance. It is always very important to address any gaps in your smile due to missing teeth. Ask our dental office if a partial denture is right for you.
Your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is usually called your “jaw.” If you have pain or “sticking” in your jaw, or if you suffer from headaches or muscle aches in your neck, you may have issues with your TMJ that need professional attention. Our dental team can give you access to therapies and treatments designed to finally give you relief you’ve been looking for and help your jaw function properly. Don’t live with pain any longer.
