Our smiles are a connecting point between our inner and outer selves. It may sound clichéd, but it’s true – and it means your smile is an integral part of your appearance. If your teeth aren’t up to the task, people may not get the right idea about you. Don’t spend another day with a smile that doesn’t represent your self. Combat the effects of time and gradual wear with Glen Burnie restorative dentistry.
Forms of Dental Restoration
Depending on the state of your teeth, you will have different restorative options. We may need to combine different forms of treatment, or a single crown may be sufficient. We’ll discuss your treatment plan with you prior to starting, to ensure your priorities are met. A few of the restorative procedures involved may include:
- Dental Crowns – Also known as caps, crowns cover damaged natural teeth to rebuild their original structure. Crowns may be built from a number of different materials, some valuing durability and some aesthetics.
- Dental Bridges – Bridges span gaps left by one or more missing teeth. They’re built from crowns connected to a pontic (false tooth), and fit over remaining teeth to replace the missing ones.
- Dentures – Dentures may be full or partial, and replace spans of lost teeth. Modern dentures fit patients well and don’t look or feel unnatural.
- Dental Implants – Implants replace missing tooth roots to provide connecting points for restorations. They may accompany any of the other restorations listed here, to enhance stability and make those restorations feel natural.
- Root Canal – If a tooth becomes infected, it doesn’t need to mean extraction. Endodontic therapy will remove the interior portion of a tooth (the pulp, which has become infected) to allow the rest of the tooth to remain and to thrive.
