Restorative Dentistry

Implants

The dentists at Dental Works can restore a single tooth or multiple teeth using a dental implant. A dental implant utilizes an artificial root made from surgical-grade titanium that the doctors place in your mouth. Your jawbone bonds to the artificial root, creating a secure foundation for the attachment of a natural-looking porcelain crown or for a bridge that is custom created for you.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures distribute your biting pressure more like natural teeth than traditional dentures, stimulating the supportive structures of your teeth and preventing the bone and soft tissues from shrinking away. You can replace an entire set of teeth with beautiful, natural-looking implants. 

Dentures

 A proper fitting denture is very important. A good fit ensures that your dentures will allow you to retain much of your function, which is important for maintaining natural muscle tone in your face and jaw. Dentures will keep you looking and feeling healthy, and will help you retain your typical lifestyle. A natural-looking smile and the best possible fit are two of the primary goals that your doctor will achieve if you need dentures to restore your smile. 

Partial Dentures

A partial denture will provide you with a natural-looking way to restore your smile to its original brilliance. You will be pleased with how your new partial denture restores the gaps in your smile-gaps due to missing teeth that cannot be corrected by a bridge. Your partial denture will be removable and will be made from a synthetic material supported by lightweight metal that mimics your gum tissue and teeth giving you a beautiful new smile. The partial denture will preserve your bone structure as well as the integrity of your existing teeth, by preventing them from shifting and tilting in towards the gaps created by your missing teeth. 

Porcelain Crowns

You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Sometimes called “caps,” porcelain crowns are customized for you, covering broken, cracked, or discolored teeth. Crowns are a durable, strong, and long-lasting method of enhancing both the look and functionality of your smile. After some preparation of the tooth or teeth that will receive the crown(s), your dentist will position a custom-milled, natural-looking porcelain crown over your damaged tooth, restoring and rejuvenating your oral health. 

Bridges

When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and, may cause mouth pain. Also, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by your doctor, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist, and are a long-term, restorative solution to your damaged smile.
