Our O’Fallon Dentists Outline Ways We Restore Damaged Smiles

Written by Dr. Brace on Sep 15, 2020

If you have sustained a dental injury, or you’re dealing with an oral infection, you may benefit from restorative dental care. Our O’Fallon restorative dentists use a number of different treatments and technologies to help our patients achieve their goals. Keep reading to learn more…. 

  • Gum Tissue Care

Prompt treatment for periodontal disease works to kill harmful oral bacteria before they are able to wreak havoc on your oral health. You may need to use specially formulated rinses or toothpastes to help your oral tissues heal. If gum disease has greatly diminished the amount of healthy tissue in your mouth, you may benefit from gum grafts. 

  • Dental Bonding

Custom-shaded composite resin is applied the patient’s natural tooth structure in order to repair chipped or cracked enamel. Not only does this improve aesthetics, it also fortifies your natural tooth to minimize the risk of future damage.

  • Porcelain Restorations

Another option when it comes to treating dental damage is the ceramic restoration. Porcelain crowns and veneers mimic the appearance of natural enamel while providing exceptional strength, stability, and durability. These restorations are individually crafted and then bonded to your natural tooth.

  • Dentures

Dentures are used to replace a number of consecutive missing teeth. Our team molds the base of the denture to fit snugly over your gum and jawbone tissues. We also customize the shapes, sizes, and colors of the replacement teeth in your dentures.

  • Dental Implants

Implant technology takes replacement teeth to the next level; implants have titanium posts that extend into the jawbone, replacing the natural tooth root. This treatment provides an exceptionally stable permanent replacement tooth to the patient.

Many of the treatments that we have talked about today can be used in combination in order to help you reach your dental goals. We hope that you now have a better idea of what’s possible at our state-of-the-art O’Fallon dental office. Remember, no smile is beyond help!
