Fix Your Broken and Decayed Teeth with Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry is what our team uses to repair chipped, cracked, broken, or decayed teeth, but it can also help you replace missing teeth. Basically, whatever problem your smile might have, restorative dentistry can take care of it so you can show off your teeth with full confidence again. Dr. Jordan Singer only uses the strongest and most natural-looking materials to fabricate our restorations, and patients are always amazed at how well they blend into their smile. Whether you have just one problem tooth or a few, we’re ready to help, so contact us today for an appointment.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
Traditional crowns and bridges are two of the most reliable and effective treatments in all of dentistry when it comes to fixing damaged teeth and even replacing missing ones. A crown is actually a tooth-shaped “cap” that is fitted over a natural tooth in order to restore its shape, size, and strength all at the same time. It’s a fantastic way to repair decayed teeth, broken teeth, and even teeth with permanent stains. They can be made of a variety of materials, but no matter which, they can be used to completely rebuild a tooth in just two visits.
With a bridge, we can quickly replace one missing tooth or even a few in a row. Two crowns are placed on the teeth surrounding the missing ones, and these are bonded to prosthetic teeth to fill in the gap. This not only restores the look of the smile, but it also helps even out the bite and keeps the remaining teeth from shifting out of place (which happens often after tooth loss).
When it comes to repairing small cavities and slightly damaged teeth, one of the quickest and most effective ways to do it is with a filling. In the past, fillings were made of a metallic substance called amalgam, and while it is very durable, it does have some distinct drawbacks. Namely, it always leaves a very large mark on a tooth, and it can even make it more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. Temperature changes can even cause the amalgam to expand and contract, causing a tooth to eventually crack.
This is why Premier Care Dental only uses tooth-colored fillings that are made of a composite resin. This material is just as strong as traditional amalgam, but it can be specially shaded to perfectly blend in with a tooth. Plus, because it is metal-free, it doesn’t make a tooth more sensitive to temperatures or change shape, giving a patient a tooth that looks good, feels great, and can be trusted to last for a long time.
Full & Partial Dentures
Millions of Americans are currently missing multiple teeth, and if this includes you, then you’re well aware of the many issues they can cause your smile. Fortunately, we’re able to provide a strong and natural-looking solution with custom-made dentures. With a partial denture, we can replace multiple teeth and have them fit comfortably among the remaining ones, and with a full denture, we can instantly restore an entire row of teeth. No matter which kind you need, it will be made to fit your individual smile so you can eat and speak with ease again.
The teeth are actually composed of multiple layers, and when damage or decay reaches the innermost one, called the dental pulp, this can actually harm the sensitive nerve of a tooth and create quite a bit of pain. To relieve this kind of discomfort, Dr. Singer can perform a root canal to remove any infected tissue and even save the tooth. Thanks to modern techniques and an expert touch, this often feared procedure is now no more “painful” than getting a small filling.
Our number one goal at Premier Care Dental is to help our patients keep all of their natural teeth for as long as possible, but sometimes, the best course of treatment is simply to remove one. This is often the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged or decayed to be saved
- Gum disease has weakened the underlying bone supporting a tooth
- A baby tooth refuses to fall out naturally
- Room needs to be created for a denture/orthodontic treatment
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
The wisdom teeth are actually the most commonly extracted teeth in the world, and that’s because the modern human mouth simply doesn’t have enough room to fit them. When they start to come in (which usually happens around the late teen years), they tend to cause a variety of problems, including jaw pain, teeth crowding, and infections. We can perform safe wisdom teeth extractions right in our office so you don’t have to run all over town looking for an outside specialist.
