RESTORATIVE DENTAL CARE

RESTORING YOUR CONFIDENCE

So you haven’t been the best at keeping up with your routine dentist appointments and it’s led to some frustrating oral problems or toothaches. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Luckily, Gwaltney Dental offers and excels at a variety of top notch restorative treatments that will restore your happy, healthy, beautiful smile!

FILLINGS

“Fillings” replace damaged or decayed tooth structure with a restorative material. There are several different types of filling materials, including:

  • Silver Amalgam This was once the most common material for fillings. However, the lower cost doesn’t make up for the lack of aesthetic appeal.
  • Gold Fillings This material is very durable, able to last approximately 10 to 15 years. The main drawback is the price, since gold is a precious metal.
  • White Fillings After much research, new tooth-colored materials have been developed that are stronger, longer-lasting and more aesthetically pleasing. These fillings bond directly to the tooth, strengthening it by restoring most of its original shape. We can even custom-color match your teeth to help give you the most natural-looking smile possible!

CEREC CROWNS

A crown is a custom-made covering that fits over an original tooth that is decayed, damaged or cracked. We utilize CEREC technology to provide you with custom, porcelain crowns you can depend on in just one office visit!

In most cases, there is no need for multiple visits, temporary crowns or waiting for dental labs to create your custom crown. CEREC allows us to take optical impressions, design and create your custom crown in our office in a single appointment!

CEREC crowns are designed with tooth-colored porcelain, allowing you to maintain the natural appearance of your smile so you can face the world with confidence.

ROOT CANAL THERAPY

A root canal is a procedure that extracts decayed tissue from inside a tooth, reshapes the canal and replaces it with strengthened filler. There are a number of reasons a root canal may be necessary, including dental injuries, severe decay and infection or inflammation in the tooth pulp. When left untreated, these problems can cause extensive damage to tooth structure.

Root canals can typically be completed in one visit, although more extensive cases may require another appointment. You will also be able to drive yourself home after the appointment.

BRIDGES

A bridge is a dental device that fills a space that a tooth previously occupied. A bridge may be necessary to prevent the shifting of teeth, to fix bite problems or to ensure the strength and integrity of the surrounding teeth.

Fixed bridges are the most popular, and consist of a filler tooth attached to two crowns in order to hold the bridge in place. “Maryland” bridges, commonly used to replace missing front teeth, use tooth-colored metal bands bonded to surrounding teeth. Cantilever bridges use two crowned teeth positioned next to each other on the same side of the missing tooth.

Regardless of your needs, we have a bridge solution that will work best!
