Restorative Dentistry Services
We can restore you smile to health and function through patient-centered, quality care and modern dental technology. Restorative dentistry refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, fractured, decayed or lost.
When a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, dental crowns act as a protective covering, making your natural tooth stronger and improving its function and appearance.
For one or more missing teeth, dental bridges literally “bridge the gap” between remaining teeth, stabilizing the jaw by surrounding those teeth with attractive crowns.
Infected tissues in the tooth pulp, or center of your tooth where the nerve lies, can cause severe pain and may eventually lead to tooth loss. Root canal therapy is designed to remove infected tissue with the goal of saving the tooth.
If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, a denture is a viable option. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. A denture will help keep your facial muscles from sagging, which can make your look older. Plus, it will help you eat better and speak more clearly. There are many types of dentures to complete your smile.
Patients with severe dental problems often require a full-mouth reconstruction. Dr. Ken can perform full-mouth reconstructions that involve both cosmetic and restorative dentistry solutions to improve the health, function and appearance of your smile.
Dental implants are a natural-looking and functional option to replace one or more missing teeth. Missing teeth can be detrimental to your long-term oral and overall health and can contribute to a variety of problems, including TMJ/TMD disorder, an increased risk of gum disease and decay, jawbone deterioration, and diminished self-esteem. Replacing missing teeth can not only contribute to your overall health but dramatically improve your smile and the shape of your face.
Dental implants are a great solution to replacing one or more missing teeth or can work in conjunction with dentures/partials for a permanent solution.
