Let us help you smile with confidence again with our restorative dental treatments. We can repair chipped teeth, replace missing teeth, treat decaying or discolored teeth, and so much more!
When teeth are cracked or too badly decayed, a filling will simply cause the tooth to break apart even further. Instead, it’s better to cover the tooth and preserve the compromised structure before it has a chance to erode even more. Crowns (sometimes called “caps”) are designed to mimic the appearance and function of a natural tooth, but are a full coverage restoration that encases the entire tooth structure above the gumlines.
A “bridge” is a restoration that suspends artificial porcelain tooth between two functional crowns, anchored on top of healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth. Our San Antonio dentists can also place bridges on top of dental implants, to replace three or four missing teeth at one time. With a bridge, you can maintain a healthy bite and prevent other teeth from shifting out of place because of the excess spacing.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that serve as replacements for root portions of missing natural teeth. They can be placed in the upper and lower jaws. Their biocompatible nature allows them to fuse with the bone over time and become solid anchors for restorations.
Implants look and function just like your natural teeth, and just as with natural teeth, should be routinely checked during your dental visit. Should your dental implants require restorations, our San Antonio, TX dentist can help!
Damaged teeth that become infected or are likely to become infected can often benefit from root canal therapy. This highly successful restorative procedure can provide repairs to a tooth that last a lifetime. Pair the therapy with a natural-looking crown or bridge, and no one will see a difference in your smile!
Root canal therapy has a reputation for being painful, but the toothaches associated with infected tooth roots cause more pain than the treatment itself. We also provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and localized sedation to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment.
