Why Restorative Dentistry is Important
Restorative dentistry solves many of the common dental problems that may arise throughout your life. When faced with tooth pain or damage, restorative dentistry is your lifeline. With treatment options, such as colored fillings, crowns, veneers, dentures, partials, and many others, there’s likely something to remedy any issue you have. Remaining in oral good health is essential to your whole-body health. Restorative dentistry helps alleviate pain and correct damage, but more importantly, it helps restore confidence to a damaged smile. Creating a healthy, lasting smile has never been simpler!
Crowns act as a helmet providing protection while forming the new outer surface of a decayed or broken-down tooth. The crown strengthens the tooth and prevents additional breakdown from occurring as a result of normal chewing and eating habits.
CEREC Crowns: Crowns Completed in a Single Appointment
Just like traditional crowns, CEREC crowns treat decaying and broken down teeth. Unlike traditional crowns, the CEREC crown process requires only a few hours instead of a few appointments. No more messy impressions; CEREC Crowns are scanned digitally and designed in our in-house lab while you wait. Patients will receive the same benefits that come with a traditional crown, but in a much less time consuming way. Additionally, CEREC crowns are metal free providing patients with a much more aesthetic look. At Seabreeze Dental, we’re all about making things easier for our patients any way we can.
Bridges are exactly as they sound, a bridge between two teeth. This is done to fill in a gap left by a missing tooth. The teeth on either side of the gap receive a crown and the bridge is anchored between them to give the functionality and appearance of a real tooth. This treatment is a permanent tooth replacement that is fixed in the patient’s mouth.
Bonding is the best solution to repair a chipped, discolored, or misshaped tooth. Using a resin that “bonds” to the tooth, we can mold it to the desired size and shape to repair a tooth back to its original glory.
Fillings are the most common type of dental procedure. A filling eradicates tooth decay (cavities) and fills them to repair the tooth back to its original state.
If you’re experiencing loose teeth or missing teeth altogether, it may be time for dentures. There are many types of dentures, including partial or full dentures and even dentures anchored to implants. To learn more about dentures, speak with your Seabreeze Dental provider today!
Unlike traditional dentures, these dentures are attached to implants making them unremovable. They provide a much more comfortable, aesthetically-pleasing and natural outcome for the patient. At Seabreeze Dental, our team will provide a no-charge consultation to find out if you would make a great candidate for this treatment!
Root canals treat badly decaying teeth by removing the nerve and infected pulp inside the tooth and sealing it off. Without a root canal, the tooth will become severely infected and painful.
Nobody is perfect, but your smile can be! With cosmetic dentistry, we help our patients have the bright, white smile they’ve always dreamed of. The highly-trained specialists at Seabreeze Dental have years of experience and know the best cosmetic techniques to use for every patient.
At-home teeth whitening kits don’t produce great results and common teeth whitening centers can do more harm than good. As a staple of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is a popular treatment for those unhappy with their smile. At Seabreeze Dental, our dentists use professional teeth whitening methods, like ZOOM, to make your teeth really sparkle!
A veneer is a cover that is fixed to the front of the teeth to restore a perfect smile. They’re a permanent solution to help teeth appear straight and white. This cosmetic process is irreversible, so consulting with one of our specialists is required to learn if veneers are right for you.
Restorative Dentistry Maintenance
Depending on the type of treatment you receive, the aftercare process will differ. As always, brushing, flossing and mouthwash are recommended to maintain healthy white teeth. Please speak with your dentist about when normal brushing and flossing can resume, or to learn if there are any areas that need to be avoided immediately after your procedure.
Many patients have anxiety about upcoming dental appointments. To help our procedures go smoothly, we offer IV sedation to reduce anxiety and help eradicate any fear surrounding the dentist. If you are interested in IV sedation or have any questions or concerns, contact our office today!
