Fillings are the most common methods of teeth restorations. White fillings are preferred more often these days as they come in many shades easy to match the natural color of your teeth. They are metal free and biocompatible.
Dental exams can help prevent extensive restorations. Small restorations are easy to treat and should be taken care of as they will only become bigger with time.
Full mouth restorations
If several teeth are affected in different areas of your mouth, you may require a full mouth restoration. With dental surgery and cosmetic repairs, we can repair any damage that obscures your smile.
Dental surgery might be needed to:
- Replace lost gum tissue (Gum surgery)
- Bone graft and implants
- Replace missing teeth
- Remove abscesses
We provide cosmetics repairs such as depending on the severity of the damage:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Caps or crowns
- Root canals
- Porcelain Veneers
For small decay, fillings are often the best solution to protect the tooth from further damage that will eventually affect your smile. If the damage is extensive or a root canal was performed a crown or a cap might be required to protect the remaining tooth from breaking. Caps or crowns often provide more structural support for the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are similar to crowns but with a more cosmetic purpose. They can be used to strengthen the tooth as well as but primarily provide an even tone and shape to teeth that were somehow compromised.
We encourage you to get your teeth checked regularly and never leave a tooth untreated for long as they can quickly become more problematic and expensive procedure to save or restore. At Gleneagle Dental, we are always taking new patients and emergencies.
It hard to replace a missing tooth but with new and innovative implant technology is possible. Implants do not affect the adjacent teeth and have a look and feel more natural than any other restoration.
