Following minor dental damage or tooth decay, fillings are used to replace lost tooth enamel and recreate the healthy function and appearance of your smile. This conservative treatment plan allows us to fully restore your picture-perfect smile. The process is fast and simple. We remove any damaged structure before the putty-like composite resin is applied to the area, shaped into position, and hardened with a curing light. Once the filling is in place, we smooth and polish the tooth, leaving you with a flawlessly repaired smile.
Dental crowns are restorations used for more advanced decay or damage. They fit over the top of the tooth to replace lost structure and protect the remaining parts of the tooth from additional injury. These prosthetic teeth are attached to strengthen the tooth and restore its structure and beauty.
One-Visit Dental Restorations
Using E4D, or the Chairside Economical Reconstruction of Esthetic Ceramics, we can fit you with a porcelain dental crown or inlay and onlay (also known as an indirect filling) in just one visit to the dentist. The method uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing) technology, which allows your dentist to plan for, prepare, and place your restoration from the comfort of our state-of-the-art dental office.
E4D saves you time, eliminates the need for a temporary crown between appointments, and takes away the risk of miscommunication between our dental office and a separate lab. And patients with sensitive gag reflexes love the fact that E4D uses digital impressions, which are captured without the use of that uncomfortable, bad tasting molding material. We appreciate digital imagery because it is more accurate than the traditional method and leads to improved treatment planning and better results overall.
Inlays & Onlays
For dental damage, decay, chips, and cracks that are too severe for fillings but not advanced enough for a full dental crown, we may recommend an inlay or onlay as a more conservative solution. Inlays are used to repair damage that occurs between the cusps (raised portions on the biting surfaces of teeth). Onlays are used to repair dental damage that impacts one or more tooth cusps. Like dental crown restorations, they’re made of high-quality ceramic, but they allow us to preserve a larger amount of healthy tooth structure.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Patients who suffer from multiple dental and/or oral issues require a comprehensive approach, which is where a full mouth reconstruction comes in. Dr. Georgy, Dr. Mohanna, or Dr. MacLeod will evaluate your teeth, gums, and all surrounding oral structures (like your jaw, or the temporomandibular joint) to determine what course of action would best serve you. Full-mouth reconstruction pulls from multiple areas of dentistry to get you out of pain while also improving the appearance and function of your smile.
In addition to basic dental restorations, we also provide more advanced oral surgery services, including root canal therapy and wisdom tooth extraction.
Dental bone is vitally important to the structure of our teeth, jaw, and overall facial appearance. When bone is lost through injury, gum disease or missing or extracted teeth, a bone graft can provide the foundation for reconstruction with a dental implant or other dental procedure.
A bone graft is the process of filling an area with material such as bone taken from another part of your body, synthetic material, cadaver bone, or animal bone. After filling the area, a seal is placed over the graft and stitches close the area in preparation for healing. Once the graft has healed completely, you are ready for the next step in your dental reconstruction.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy has a bad reputation as being painful, but actually the procedure significantly relieves toothaches and dental sensitivity that often precede the need for root canal therapy. Root canals are performed by creating a small hole in the center of the tooth where the pulp and nerve tissues are housed. With the damaged tissue removed, a dental crown is placed to protect and strengthen your treated tooth.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The third set of molars, wisdom teeth are often removed due to a lack of space within the smile to accommodate this new set of teeth. This can cause wisdom teeth to become impacted or unable to erupt from the gums. They can also cause surrounding teeth to shift out of alignment, and lead to a wide range of other complications. For these and other reasons, extraction is often recommended.
