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 cosmetic problems with your smile?
Perhaps a tooth that is discolored, damaged, or missing entirely is keeping you from smiling as much as you’d like. You may 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. 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 can significantly improve your smile and get it looking and feeling great. Here are some of the restorative dentistry procedures Dr. Thompson offers:
- Dental implants—Dental implants are small titanium rods placed into your gums and jaw that become new tooth roots. With a dental crown placed on the dental implant, you have a sturdy, attractive new artificial 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 that cover your existing teeth and can repair cracks, chips, discoloration, or breaks. 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 are attached to dental implants. Traditional and partial dentures are secured to dental implants or dental crowns. These partial dentures can be permanent or removable.
- Dental bridges— Dental bridges restore your smile by replacing missing teeth with an apparatus that bridges a large gap. Dental bridges are secured on either side to dental crowns.
