Not replacing teeth that have gone missing is a big mistake that many people make. The reasons for replacing missing teeth go beyond repairing your appearance – it also will help your oral health which will, in turn, help your overall health. Having one of these fantastic restorative dentistry procedures will improve your smile and give you the look that you’ve dreamed of having.
Webster, TX dentist Dr. Das provides several ways to restore damaged and missing teeth. Dental restorations can be direct or indirect. Direct restorations like bonding and fillings are applied directly to the tooth in one visit. Indirect restorations are manufactured in the laboratory and placed at a later date. While waiting for the permanent restoration, the patient usually wears a temporary covering to protect the tooth.
If you are suffering from localized pain in a tooth, you may have an infection that can be fixed only with a root canal procedure. Our root canals are painless and will leave your oral health in excellent condition! Say goodbye to your root canal infection after having a root canal procedure at Clear Lake Dental Care!
If your smile is suffering because of discoloration, cracks, or chips, then dental veneers may be the best choice to restore your smile! Veneers are porcelain shells that are placed on the front of your teeth to restore your smile to its former beauty. After having dental veneers placed, you’ll be supremely confident in your smile!
Fillings are materials that fill a space or cavity in the tooth. Common filling materials are silver amalgam, composite resin, glass ionomer, ceramic, and precious metals. At Clear Lake Dental Care, we use tooth-colored, mercury-free fillings as healthier and natural-looking alternatives to amalgam.
Inlays and onlays are special types of fillings that are used if a tooth is too weak to support a regular filling but is not yet a candidate for a full-coverage dental crown. These indirect fillings are designed in the laboratory in advance to fit the tooth structure perfectly. Inlays are placed within the center of the tooth, while onlays can cover the entire chewing surface.
Dental crowns are used to fix severe damage. If there is dental pulp infection, a root canal is performed before the crown is placed. Dr. Das offers same-day crowns using CEREC technology.
When you lose teeth, it only makes sense to regain your smile and functionality with a restorative dental procedure. An excellent option that Clear Lake Dental Care offers is dental bridges. Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by missing teeth and will give your smile the look that it had before you lost teeth.
Having missing teeth can create quite an embarrassing problem for you when it comes to interacting with others, both socially and professionally. People will look at you as a person who doesn’t take care of yourself because you’ve chosen not to replace your missing teeth. Replacing your teeth with a dental bridge will not only eliminate that problem, but it will also restore your teeth’s functionality.
For several missing teeth, Dr. Das uses dentures and implant-supported teeth. Dental implants are synthetic tooth roots that rebuild the structure from the root up. Dr. Das is an implant expert who places Teeth in a Day, permanent teeth replacement, and immediate placement dental implants.
