What Are Composite Fillings?

Composite fillings are an alternative to traditional metal-amalgam fillings. Metal-amalgam fillings have been used to restore damaged and decayed teeth for decades, and they are very effective. However, they are made of a blend of metals like silver, tin, and mercury. This means that amalgam fillings are grayish in color and they may detract from the natural beauty of your smile. Composite fillings, on the other hand, are less invasive and they are made of special dental resin that can be matched perfectly to your tooth color for seamless, beautiful results. 

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is the best way to restore a tooth that has become infected. Tooth infections usually occur due to untreated decay that has destroyed the enamel or an oral injury that resulted in a broken or cracked tooth. When this happens, the vulnerable “pulp” inside the tooth is exposed to bacteria, and becomes infected.

At Loveland Lakes Family Dentistry, we perform both anterior and molar root canals. During this procedure, a small hole is made in your tooth and the infected material is removed. Then, the tooth is disinfected, filled with an inert material, and protected with a filling or crown to prevent further damage.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are ideal for treating seriously damaged teeth and you may need a crown if you have an advanced cavity or a cracked tooth. Crowns are designed to cover up and protect your remaining tooth structure. During the procedure, your tooth is trimmed to create a platform that a dental crown can rest on, and impressions are taken. These impressions will be sent to a dental lab where you permanent crown will be manufactured. In the meantime, you’ll be sent home with a temporary crown. When we receive your permanent crown, Dr. Marlor will be bond it permanently to the remaining tooth structure, restoring the beauty and function of your smile.

Are Partial Dentures Right for Me?

Partial dentures are an economical option for replacing multiple missing teeth, and they can prevent common issues related to tooth loss, such as teeth shifting. If you are missing more than one tooth, restoring your smile with partial dentures may be a good option. Contact Loveland Lakes Family Dentistry to schedule an appointment with Dr. Marlor.

What are the Benefits of Restorative Dental Treatment?

Getting restorative dental care at Loveland Lakes Family Dentistry has a number of great benefits. First, it helps you prevent complications if you’re missing a tooth, or one of your teeth is damaged. Treating an infected tooth with a root canal, for example, prevents it from dying and requiring extraction and replacement with a dental implant. 

Restorative dental care also lets you get back to your normal day-to-day life, and eliminate the pain, discomfort, and chewing issues associated with a damaged or missing tooth. You’ll be able to restore the natural function of your bite, and the natural appearance of your smile.

With restorative dentistry, you can also prevent further dental issues in the future. If you replace a missing tooth with an implant, you’ll prevent the adjacent teeth from shifting, and keep your jaw bone healthy. Or, if you cover up a decayed tooth with a crown, you’ll protect the remaining structure from further decay and damage in the future.

For all of these reasons, it’s important to get restorative dental care in Loveland Lakes as soon as you can. Whether you have a single missing or damaged tooth or extensive oral health issues, our team is here to help.

How do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants have two primary components. The first part is the implant itself. This implant is made of a small piece of titanium and is usually shaped like a screw. It’s designed to function as an artificial tooth root and is placed directly into your gum and jaw tissue. Over time, this implant heals and bonds permanently with the surrounding tissue, allowing it to support a false tooth or other restoration.

The second part of a dental implant is the implant-supported restoration. A single dental crown is the most commonly-used restoration and is meant to replace a single missing tooth. However, implant-supported bridges and dentures can be used along with multiple dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth. 

The restoration attaches securely to the implant and is meant to replace your missing tooth or teeth. Together, the implant and the restoration create an artificial tooth that looks and feels completely natural.

How do Crowns and Bridges Work Together?

Dental crowns are a key component of bridges. Bridges are used to restore one or more adjacent missing teeth by suspending false teeth in the gaps where your missing teeth used to be. 

This is done by using two “abutment” crowns. These crowns are placed on healthy teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile. Then, the teeth are trimmed down to accommodate a crown. A bridge is built that includes two crowns that attach to your abutment teeth, as well as one or more pontics (false teeth) that will span the gap where your missing tooth used to be.

The crowns are what hold the bridge securely in place, and they are bonded permanently to your teeth to keep the bridge secure. Unlike a partial denture, a bridge will never shift or move, since it’s securely anchored to these crowns.
