There are many reasons to go see a dentist. One, of course, is to keep your smile healthy and clean. But what if you have some problems with your smile? Perhaps a missing tooth, a misshapen, discolored or damaged tooth is keeping you from having a smile you love.
You may even be suffering with health issues because some of your teeth are getting too much wear or you are unable to eat the foods you want and need to keep you healthy. You may even be avoiding socializing because your smile is not what you’d like it to be.
If this is the case, restorative dentist Dr. Thompson at Battle Mountain Dental is happy to offer you restorative dentistry.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry basically is a group of procedures that restore your smile. To get your smile functioning properly and healthy, restorative dentistry procedures are an excellent choice. Here are some of the restorative dentistry procedures restorative dentist Dr. Thompson offers:
DENTAL IMPLANTS | Dental implants are a remarkable procedure your restorative dentist offers. Dental implants are small titanium rods placed into your gums and jawbone that, after a healing time of 3-6 months become a “new” tooth root. With a dental crown placed on the dental implant, you have a sturdy, attractive “new” tooth. Dental implants restore your smile by replacing missing teeth.
DENTAL CROWNS | Dental crowns are made from porcelain and are custom made to match your teeth in size, shape and color. Dental crowns are caps over your existing teeth and can repair cracks, chips, misshapen, discolored or broken teeth. Dental crowns can also be used to top dental implants or used as anchors for dentures or dental bridges.
DENTURES | Your restorative dentist Dr. Thompson offers several denture options: permanent dentures, which are attached to dental implants. He also offers partial dentures that can be secured to dental implants or dental crowns. These partial dentures can be permanent or removable, like a retainer with wires. We also offer traditional dentures.
DENTAL BRIDGES | Dental bridges restore your smile by having your restorative dentist replace missing teeth with an apparatus that bridges the gap in your smile. Dental bridges are secured on either side to dental crowns.
