Keep your smile feeling and functioning at its absolute best with restorative dentistry. From simple procedures like dental fillings, to more complex solutions like dental prosthetics and root canal therapy, restorative dentistry aims to revitalize decayed or damaged teeth. Our Bonney Lake dentists provide comprehensive restorative care, so you can take back your overall oral health so you can eat, laugh, and smile with confidence.
Cavities are one of the most common oral diseases, so it's imperative we tackle them as soon as they begin to compromise the health and wellness of your teeth. When left untreated, they can cause serious discomfort and may require more invasive procedures to alleviate. Thanks to fillings, your dentist can halt the progression of tooth decay in a single visit. By stopping by for your regular 6-month cleaning and checkup, you can prevent new cavities from forming in the first place.
If you're dealing with cracked or damaged teeth, dental crowns can restore your smile! Crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that protect your tooth's natural root and revitalize the function of your bite. If you've received a root canal or dental implant, a crown can also be used to bring back the health of your tooth. Since dental crowns can be made from many materials, they are ideal for a variety of restorative and cosmetic applications, so you can smile with confidence.
Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.
Missing a tooth? Need an extraction? The look of your smile, functionality of your bite, and overall oral health can all be restored by a dental implant. Dental implants are the most secure, long-lasting tooth replacement, and the only one that actually halts the progression of bone loss. They're one of the most secure ways to restore lost teeth, so get in touch with us today to see if implants are right for you!
There's no need to keep covering up your mouth if a missing tooth is leaving a gap in your smile. With a dental bridge, the space left behind by one, or several, missing teeth can be permanently covered. The bridge is attached to your teeth on either side of the gap, so it won't slide around when you eat or speak. Your bridge also won't stand out from the rest of your smile —it can be color-matched to blend with your other teeth. Keep your teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of bone loss and problems with your bite by asking your dentist about a bridge. Schedule a consultation today to see if a dental bridge can help you complete your smile!
Tired of your dentures slipping and sliding around in your mouth? Implant-retained dentures, also called overdentures or snap-on dentures, can replace all of your teeth, just like traditional dentures. However, instead of relying on suction or adhesive, they are secured in place with several dental implants. These removable appliances make it easy to keep up with your oral hygiene, and are made from a combination of acrylic and metal materials for enhanced durability.
After your dental implant has been affixed, your dentist will make the finishing touches by adding an implant crown! Dental crowns act as tooth "caps" that are fitted onto the implant. Your dentist will ensure the size and color of your implant crown matches with the rest of your other teeth, so you can have a seamless new smile.
