What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Damaged teeth can alter the physical appearance of your smile, affect your self-esteem, and complicate your ability to chew and speak properly.
At Caring Family Dentistry, we use restorative dentistry to replace missing teeth and enhance your natural smile.
White Composite Fillings
A composite filling can repair a tooth affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and filled with a composite filling.
Many filling materials are available, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Our Concord dental team will discuss the best options for restoring your teeth.
Long gone are the days of unsightly metal fillings and tooth restorations. Metal-free porcelain restorations resemble the natural color of your teeth and adhere seamlessly to damaged teeth.
Metal-free restorations are highly customizable and can come in the form of inlays, onlays, dental crowns, and bridges—depending on your unique situation and needs.
Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays, or dental veneers are required to restore damaged teeth, you'll have multiple procedures and some waiting time in-between appointments. CEREC® creates ceramic restorations within minutes in the dental office.
This means that our dentists can complete many treatments completed in just a single visit to our office in Concord. CEREC® consists of several computer-assisted design (CAD) tools and a milling machine that creates custom ceramic restorative devices. This is of great benefit to nervous patients.
Dental implants may be the perfect solution for you if you're missing one or more teeth. Dental implants are natural-looking, and your dentist permanently anchors them into your jawbone.
It is important to replace missing teeth because your teeth can shift and cause a variety of dental problems. When you get your dental implants, your jaw will bond and attach to the implant.
Tooth loss can create more significant problems for dental health if gum disease, decay, and injuries aren't corrected. The teeth next to a missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move, resulting in pain and discomfort.
With bridges, our team can close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge is permanently cemented and will look and act just like natural teeth and help maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.
An Anxiety-free Dental Experience
With the Solea® all-tissue laser, you can get fillings without any numbing. Experience a comfortable, relaxing, and pain-free experience at the dentist. Our team utilizes the Solea laser to fill cavities, treat gum tissue, and much more.
