Wondering what your options are for restoring your oral health in West Hartford? Let’s take a look at a few common restorative treatments now.
Fillings use tooth-colored material to fill cavities and prevent them from damaging your teeth. They are fast, safe, and are the best way to stop tooth decay from getting worse.
Inlays and onlays are made of porcelain, and are usually used to repair cavities that are too big for fillings, but too small for crowns. They are very durable, long-lasting, and are matched to the color of your teeth for excellent cosmetic results.
We use lab-made porcelain dental crowns. These look and feel just like natural teeth, and are custom-made to fit into your mouth perfectly. Crowns are ideal for repairing large cavities and infected teeth, as well as teeth that have been cracked or damaged by oral trauma.
Bridges use two dental crowns. These are attached to two of your healthy teeth. Between them, one or more false teeth can be suspended, “bridging” the gap in your smile. They are durable, long-lasting, and look and feel very natural.
Partial dentures are a fast, affordable way to restore multiple missing teeth. They snap onto your healthy teeth, and allow you to eat, speak, and smile normally. Full dentures are similar, but require the removal of any remaining teeth. They are only recommended if most or all of your natural teeth are unhealthy or damaged.
Depending on your situation, further oral surgeries from our West Hartford practice may be needed to restore your oral health. This could include things like tooth extractions, bone grafts, alveoloplasty, and more.
Mainly, restorative dentistry is concerned with resolving serious oral health issues. This includes things like cavities, infected teeth, missing teeth, and teeth that have been damaged by oral injuries.
Restorative dentistry from our West Hartford office protects your oral health, and prevents further complications. This saves you time and money. It also restores the appearance of your teeth and your mouth, which enhances your confidence and self-esteem.
If you’re experiencing any serious oral pain and discomfort, you’re likely experiencing a dental emergency. Common emergencies include tooth infections, teeth damaged by dental trauma, damaged dental work, and much more.
