This branch of dental services is for individuals with moderate to severe damage or decay. While a heavy focus lies in restorative damaged or decayed enamel, treatment can also help correct various soft tissue ailments.
Dr. Kimberly Voges and her exceptionally talented team are well suited to provide you with the care you deserve. While there are various ways to achieve this, most of them benefit from our advanced technology; oral lasers and CEREC®, or CAD machines.
Restoration Services We Provide
Crowns, or caps, are a quick and easy way to improve the appearance of your smile while simultaneously improving your health. In the past, porcelain crowns would have taken 2-3 weeks, but now, roughly an hour.
Conversely to crowns, implants are a more drastic procedure aimed at attaching the problem at the root. Usually, there is underlying infection or decay in the root canal, forcing the removal of the tooth. In the vacancy, your dentist will insert a screw, abutment, and finally, your personalized CEREC® crown.
If you’re missing more than one tooth in sequential order, the most effective way of bridging the gap is with these. Much like other crowns, we provide these in just one visit. These are cemented to existing teeth and don’t lead to as lengthy of a recovery time as implants.
Secured with implants, these replace large swaths of teeth in a single go. However, depending on the extent of loss, you may receive a full or partial denture. The benefits of these range of cosmetics are boosts and a return to normal functionality.
Fillers are the most common way of fixing tooth decay after a cavity. These will be stained to the exact color of your tooth, making them unnoticeable. Lastly, they’ll be smoothed out so you won’t have any discomfort or rough edges.
Endodontists perform these. In Greek, “endo” means inside, and “odṓn” meaning tooth. These professionals will remove the inner infected pulp of your tooth, thoroughly clean it, and then fill it like any other cavity. Depending on the severity, this may take two visits to perform.
Have your teeth lost their shine, or are they chipped or cracked? If yes, you may be a prime candidate for veneers. These coverings adhere to the fronts of your teeth to provide cosmetic rejuvenation. The one qualifier for this procedure is that you must have solid overall tooth health, or correction of underlying problems will come before you receive veneers.
Inlays and On lays
Both of these options have been in practice to fix cavities before teeth fillings. Inlays go inside the tooth, and then a bonding agent is used to hold it in place. Dissimilarly, on lays, while being inside the tooth, extend to the biting edge of the tooth.
