Restorative Dentistry

If you’re in need of restorative dentistry, you’re not alone. In fact, according to the American Dental Association, 69% of Americans between the ages of 35 and 44 have at least one missing tooth. And while there are a number of reasons why people lose their teeth, the good news is that there are also a number of ways to restore them. Whether you have lost a tooth or damaged a tooth, we have services suitable for reparation, restoration, or replacement to ensure the health of your smile.

Below, you will find a number of restorative procedures that we offer in our Leander, TX office. We encourage you to read about the procedures to learn more about how we can help improve the integrity and aesthetics of your teeth. If you have any questions, contact our office today!

Fillings

Fillings are used to repair a tooth that has been damaged by decay. Once the decay is removed and the tooth is cleaned, the filling material is used to restore the tooth structure while preventing decay progression. At our office, we use a tooth-colored composite resin material for our fillings. This type of filling is less noticeable than the older, silver-colored amalgam fillings and can be matched to the color of your tooth. This ensures a seamless appearance and natural-looking smile.

Crowns

A dental crown is a “cap” that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth above the gum line. Crowns are used to restore a tooth that is critically damaged and cannot be repaired by a filling; this may be due to trauma, severe decay, or infection. Once the tooth has been properly treated, it will require a crown to protect it and restore its strength. 

  • The process begins by reshaping the tooth to prepare it for the crown. 
  • Once your tooth has been prepared, we will use our intraoral scanner to take a digital impression of the tooth. 
  • This digital impression is sent to our in-house dental lab, where our team will quickly get to work designing the perfect restoration. In the meantime, we will place a temporary crown on your tooth. 
  • Once we have completed your permanent crown, you will return to our office for a brief appointment to have the crown placed.

Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth in a sequence. The appliance consists of two dental crowns placed on the teeth adjacent to the empty space, with a false tooth or teeth in between. This “false tooth”, also called a pontic, is attached to the crowns and effectively fills the empty space. This makes it easier to chew food, speak clearly, and prevent the adjacent teeth from shifting out of place.

Dentures

Dentures are removable, restorative appliances that are available in two different forms: partial dentures and full dentures. 

  • Partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing teeth along the upper or lower dental arch. These appliances consist of an acrylic base that matches the color of your gums, with false teeth attached. The partial is held in place by clasps that attach to your natural teeth.
  • Full dentures are used to replace an entire row of teeth along the upper or lower dental arch. The appliance consists of a polymer base that matches the color of your gums, with porcelain teeth attached. Full dentures rely on suction and denture adhesive to stay in place. 

Both types of dentures are removable so that they can be cleaned daily. They should also be removed at night to give your gums a chance to rest.
