Want to learn more about how you can overcome existing dental damage? This short article is for you! Today our Elmhurst dentists are going through some of the most popular restorative treatments that we use in our dental office. We hope that, as you read through this information, you get a better idea of how dental treatment may be able to help your smile.
Cracks and Chips
When teeth become cracked and chipped, you have a few effective treatment options from which to choose. Dental bonding—which involves placing dental resin over the natural tooth—can fill in dental cracks, and rebuild chipped away portions of a tooth. If your tooth requires a more sizeable restoration you may benefit from a dental crown. Additionally, our team resurfaces teeth with porcelain veneers.
If your teeth have become infected, our dental team will help you overcome this infection and regain a healthy tooth. Small cavities can be treated with tooth-colored fillings. If you have a more severe dental infection, which has infected the dental pulp and roots, our dentist will perform root canal therapy to clear away all of the damaged dental material. Then we can rebuild the tooth with a restoration.
Patients who are missing teeth should pursue tooth replacement treatment in a timely manner. The truth is that tooth loss harms both the aesthetics and the health of your smile. Dental implants are permanent, stand-alone replacement teeth that are secured into the patient’s jawbone with titanium roots. Once these replacement teeth are in your mouth, you’ll be able to treat them, and care for them, just like you do natural teeth.
No matter what your dental concern, our Elmhurst dentists are here to help you find the perfect treatment solutions for your life. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have questions, or if you want to schedule your personal consultation with our helpful team.
