Dealing with dental damage? Our O’Fallon restorative dentists can help!
We offer a number of effective, convenient, and attractive solutions to dental damage. In this short article, we are going to be reviewing a few of them. We hope that this information gives you a better idea of all that is possible in the world of modern dentistry.
The term “dental bonding” refers to the application, shaping, and curing of composite resin to the natural tooth surface. This treatment is used to close gaps between teeth, correct dental damage, and cover dark or stained enamel. One of the key advantages of dental bonding is that our team is able to complete treatment, from start to finish, in just one appointment.
Porcelain Crowns & Veneers
Porcelain restorations are used to improve dental aesthetics, as well as to rebuild or repair missing portions of a patient’s tooth. Because porcelain mimics the appearance of natural enamel, it is an ideal choice when it comes to restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
Dental crowns are designed and shaped to fit over dental damage, while veneers are thin shells that are applied to the dental enamel. Depending on what type of damage you are dealing with, as well as your treatment goals, you may end up using only one of these treatments or a combination thereof.
Tooth Replacement Options
Adult tooth loss not only affects dental aesthetics; your oral health is compromised as soon as you lose a tooth. The tooth replacement options that we offer are designed to replace the visible tooth root, and, through dental implant technology, the missing tooth root. Timely treatment can help you avoid future related issues like loss of jawbone density.
Every restorative and cosmetic dentistry plan is personalized to suit the patient’s needs. When you meet with our O’Fallon dentists we’ll be able to assess your oral health and make recommendations for your smile, specifically. We look forward to speaking with you!
