Dentures & Restorative Dentistry
Restorative Dentistry helps improve your everyday life. If you have dental pain, tooth loss, or traumatic injury, restorative dentistry might be right for you. These problems, if ignored, can lead to other health issues such as headaches, infections, additional tooth loss, and more.
Implant Retained Dentures
The advanced technology of modern implant retained dentures eliminates limitations and inconvenience of conventional dentures. Losing teeth can have severe repercussions if they are not properly replaced.
Although some patients may have no problem wearing an upper denture, many patients find it difficult to wear lower dentures. Several implant-supported replacement options are available to alleviate the frustrations of removable teeth. Why our patients choose implant retained dentures:
- Keeps your jawbone safe and secure
- Eliminates pain & decreases risk of infection
- Regain confidence in social settings
- Enjoy foods previously avoided!
- No more questions like “Why do your teeth come out?”
- Avoids facial wrinkles along the nose and lips
A dental bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures, dental bridges are typically used to replace a single, missing tooth.
What is a dental bridge? A bridge is a device used to fill gaps caused by missing teeth. Bridges are bonded into place and can only be removed by a dental professional. Want to learn more about bridges? Contact us today!
What are veneers? Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to make your teeth look healthy and natural. Although thin, they provide an incredible amount of strength and safety for your teeth.
Why choose veneers? Veneers are less intrusive than crowns or braces. They only cover part of your teeth and are extremely useful in correcting small gaps or misalignments. Veneers can be done same day! Contact us today!
Unlike veneers, crowns cover the entire tooth and is a required step after any root canal procedure. Crowns can now be color matched to the shade of your other natural teeth!
Inlays and Onlays
Our inlays and onlays are made with CEREC® porcelain, all completed the same day. These pieces are adhesively cemented to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.
You and Dr. Frank may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for tooth replacement.
