Whether you need to treat a cavity, cover a tooth with a crown, have partial dentures made, or have missing teeth replaced with a fixed bridge, Dr. Henson can help. Restorative dentistry is very effective and particularly important in maintaining healthy teeth. If problems are addressed early on, we can restore your teeth back to good health and full function.
The benefits of restorative dentistry include:
- Preventing the loss of a tooth
- Relieving pain in your mouth
- Replacing missing teeth
- Repairing decayed teeth
- Improving your bite
- Enhancing your smile
Dr. Christie Henson, DMD offers multiple restoration procedures including:
- Tooth Implants
A composite filling will remove the decayed part of the tooth and will be the same color as your tooth, to keep visible areas looking healthy and good as new. Another common restoration is a crown (or cap) that covers your entire tooth to protect and restore the tooth to its original size and shape. A crown is needed if a filling cannot restore the tooth fully. Crowns are also available in the color of your tooth to provide a more natural looking smile.
Partial dentures are removable teeth that act as a replacement to missing teeth. These may be needed if you've lost many teeth in an arch. The making of dentures will involve several appointments to create molds for a custom denture. Another way to replace missing teeth is through fixed bridges. This is a slightly longer procedure and may take a few visits. Dr. Henson will expertly assess what your specific situation requires to create a healthy mouth and renew your beautiful smile through restoration.
