Our Elmhurst Dentist Treat Severe Dental Damage With Modern Technology

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Jul 3, 2018

As with most things in life, it’s markedly easier to avoid oral health issues, rather than correct them after the fact. However, sometimes, despite our best efforts, dental issues pop up anyway. Don’t panic! Our Elmhurst dentists offer a range of treatments to help get your smile back on track after dental damage. Keep reading to learn more!

If you have a tooth that is significantly damaged, down to the dental core, then root canal therapy may be necessary to save your remaining healthy tooth structure. During root canal treatment, our team clears away any infected dental material, as well as blood, tissues, and nerves that reside in the center of the tooth. Then, we fill and restore the tooth with a customized restoration. All of the restorations we use are metal-free and custom-shaded to match the patient’s existing enamel.

Another type of restoration that can transform your smile is the dental veneer. A veneer is an exceptionally thin cosmetic restoration that is used to resurface a patient’s tooth. Veneers are permanently bonded in place, and once they are in place, your existing tooth will look completely different. One major advantage of veneer treatment is that the entire process can be completed in just two to three appointments.

For patients who are dealing with incomplete smiles due to premature tooth loss, our dental team offers tooth replacement treatments to help you rebuild your smile. Dental implants, for example, are permanent, customized replacement teeth that are actually grounded in the patient’s jaw tissue. By using state-of-the-art restorative technology, we help patients achieve smiles that both look great and function optimally.

Our Elmhurst dentists are here to answer any questions that you may have about restorative dental treatment. Give us a call to speak to a member of our team, and to schedule a personal consultation!
