Restorative dentistry is available to those who have various dental issues, including missing, damaged, or decayed teeth. With the advance of technology, restorative care options have increased in number and in quality. Our professional staff is trained to offer the support, care, and education you need in order to restore and maintain your oral health.
There are varied forms of restorative dentistry available:
Crowns are used when a large portion of a tooth is decayed or damaged. Think of them as a ‘cap’ on your tooth, they attach to your tooth to restore its functionally as well as its cosmetic appearance.
Bridges are used to replace a section of multiple missing teeth, and thus consist of a row of custom-formed teeth that recreate the natural contours of your mouth. Bridges can have an overwhelmingly positive impact on your overall oral health; they restore your natural bite, can reduce the risk of gum disease, as well as restore your natural speech in some cases.
The Root Canal is a method for saving severely damaged or infected teeth. It involves removing damaged portions of the tooth, disinfecting it, then repairing the damage and sealing off the tooth.
Veneers are small, thin porcelain facings that bond to the front of teeth in order to correct chipping or minor alignment issues, as well as to correct discoloration.
Dentures are prosthetic devices used to replace full or partial rows of teeth. We offer traditional style dentures, as well as Implant Over Dentures which connect to two or three dental implants (providing much, much more comfort and functionality over a traditional denture).
A dental implant is the complete replacement of a tooth, both the visible portion and the root. Dr. Wells provides Dental Implants, including the surgical placement of the implants, in-house, and utilizes Nobel BioCare Dental Implant Software to treatment plan each case. Read More Here.
These are not your traditional wire brace aligners. Invisalign® clear aligners are designed to fit around your teeth snugly and and are nearly invisible. They work faster, more predictably, and are more comfortable than wire braces. Please visit Invisalign®, or contact us for more details.
