A Movie Star Smile
As you well know, one of the very first things people notice about your appearance is your smile. It can affect how comfortable you are around others and impact your relationships with family, friends, and co-workers.
Top Quality Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry can give you back a smile that increases your confidence while giving you a stunning new look. If you have missing or damaged teeth, a dental crown or a dental bridge may be the restorative dentistry solution that is perfect for you.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Cary restorative dentist, Dr. Allan Acton, offers a number of dental procedures that improve your oral health and give you a beautiful new smile. Dental crown, dental implant, dental bonding and dental filling treatments are examples of restorative dentistry procedures.
Our doctors have a fantastic record with restorative dentistry procedures, including full mouth reconstruction services in the Morrisville and Apex, NC area. Before treatment, Dr. Acton will inform you about all your oral health options and partner with you to determine the best treatments for your unique situation.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry Services
Solutions For Missing Teeth | A dental crown or dental bridge are common solutions for many people who have one or more missing teeth. We may recommend these to repair or replace damaged teeth to restore your smile.
Oral Health | Many medical professionals believe that dental problems can often be the precursor to other serious health concerns (gum disease has been tied to heart disease by some). Restorative dentistry is an important preventive measure to avoid future problems.
Improve Appearance | If you’ve been suffering with any number of unsightly oral issues, restorative dentistry can truly be a life changing solution and make you feel incredible about how you look and feel.
What is a Dental Bridge?
While there are multiple types of dental bridges, at its core a dental bridge’s function is to span the gap left by a missing tooth or missing teeth. A dental bridge is a false tooth (also known as a pontic) that is held in place via abutments secured to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Dental bridges are comprised of porcelain that is fused to metal.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges have a number of benefits:
- Improved chewing
- Improved speaking
- Maintenance of your face’s natural shape
- Prevention of teeth shifting
- Improved appearance
A tooth colored filling builds back missing tooth structure to its original form
A filling is a mixture of a tooth colored resin with clear glass particles that give it strength.
- Tooth colored fillings are limited because they seal a tooth but do not prevent it from breaking.
- Tooth colored fillings may fracture; the larger the tooth colored fillings, the greater the risk of fracture.
- Preparing for and placing a tooth colored filling can irritate the tooth and cause temporary sensitivity which may last for up to 3 months.
Bite problems may lead to the filling or tooth breaking or loosening.
- A filling may have a good color match with your natural tooth when it is placed but less of a match as your natural tooth ages.
- Tooth colored fillings can collect stain over time from foods such as black tea, coffee and wine.
- Tooth colored fillings may chip or break if used for abnormal activities (e.g. biting finger nails, opening bottles).
