Comprehensive & Restorative Dentistry In Webster, TX
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.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Clear Lake Dental Care 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.
Why Choose Us?
One of the greatest things about Clear Lake Dental Care is that we have three different doctors who each have their own different areas of expertise. Other practices may only have one doctor who only has a select area of expertise, and that can make their practice very limited. We want to stand out and serve you in as many ways as we can, and we do that by having three doctors who are all experienced in a broad range of care as well as many specialized areas. We are able to perform a great deal of dental services in office. These services include the following:
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 we place on the front of your teeth to restore your smile to its former beauty. After the placement of dental veneers, 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.
We use dental crowns to fix severe damage. If there is dental pulp infection, a root canal is necessary before the crown is placed.
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.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you are in your late teens or in your twenties, you are at risk of having problems and pain caused by your wisdom teeth coming in. Some common reasons why wisdom teeth removal could be good for you include the following:
- Your wisdom teeth are coming in at the wrong angle.
- Your jaw does not have space for an extra set of molars.
- You have cavities or gum disease in these teeth due to your inability to reach these teeth with your toothbrush or dental floss.
The main problem that causes pain is when your wisdom teeth become impacted. If your wisdom teeth become impacted, there is not enough room for your wisdom teeth to grow into your mouth, so they crowd your other natural teeth. If your wisdom teeth become impacted, we can remove them so you can escape pain and ensure that your other teeth aren’t affected by being crowded by impacted wisdom teeth. We can also remove your wisdom teeth if they are infected, because that can lead to your other teeth becoming infected, too.
