Restore Tooth Decay The Natural Way
More than 90 percent of Americans will have tooth decay in their life. There are only a lucky few who will never deal with cavities. Tooth decay weakens the tooth and will spread if not removed from the mouth. The first step is to remove the decay, but we also need to restore the mouth will an option that looks great and is durable.
At North Oaks Dental, we’re using composite filling material to restore your mouth. For years, dentists used metal materials to restore cavities. The metal can separate from the tooth overtime, and it sticks out like a sore thumb. If you’re 30 or older, you might have a few metal fillings of your own. Or maybe you have noticed them in other people’s mouth whenever they laugh or smile. We are no longer using filling material that sticks out! Our composite fillings blend in with your smile. Compared with metal fillings, these composite fillings require less removal of tooth enamel and actually bound with the tooth.
Special note: our office is offering a special two-year guarantee on every composite filling we place.
Get Rid of Metal-Based Crowns
If a tooth has substantial damage and cannot be restore with a filling, it’s best to use a dental crown. A crown, also known as a cap, will cover the tooth to protect it and keep it functional for years to come. Much like fillings, crowns have been used in dentistry for some time. And also like fillings, metal was used. In fact, we still see metal crowns today. Some crowns are entirely made from metal, while others are metal-fused-to-porcelain. The problem with metal crowns is the aesthetics. Even with a metal-based crown, patients often develop a gray line near the gum line that shows whenever they smile.
To help with function and aesthetics, our office is exclusively offers ceramic crowns that look great and will keep your mouth functional for years.
Fix Gaps in Smile With Long-lasting Options
If you have missing teeth, you have a problem with function and appearance. The gaps in your teeth can be distracting and actually make it hard to eat the food you love. To give a natural, better functioning smile, we’re offering dental bridges and dental implants. A bridge is a great option for patients with a single missing tooth. And dental implants can be used to replace single missing teeth, large gaps in the smile, or to stabilize your dentures. We’ve found that patients with missing teeth often prefer dental implants because they are long-lasting and do not require us to restore other healthy teeth (as is the case with bridges).
