At some point in your life, you will likely need some kind of restorative dentistry care. Fillings, crowns, inlays, onlays…these are all common procedures used to increase the strength and function of your teeth when damage has occurred. The earlier we can intervene in the case of a cavity, infection, or dental injury, the more likely we are to achieve good results and save your teeth.
Cracks, chips, large cavities – whether it happens because of sudden injury or severe decay, your teeth can suffer all sorts of damage over years. While common solutions like fillings and cosmetic bonding can fix small instances of these issues, more severe cases might require a bigger solution to restore full form and functionality to your smile. That’s where crowns come in! At D’Amico and Mauck, DDS, our dedicated doctors and staff can provide smiles of all shapes and sizes with custom-made crowns that can fully rejuvenate the health and appearance of any damaged, decayed, or misshapen teeth. Better yet, we use beautiful, natural-looking dental porcelain to construct our crowns, meaning that your new tooth will blend seamlessly into the rest of your smile – no one will even be able to tell you had any dental work done!
Teeth Replacement Options
D’Amico and Mauck, DDS offers many options for replacing missing teeth. If you’ve lost one tooth, several teeth, or need to replace all of your teeth, we want you to know that replacement is a top oral health priority. Sure, having a complete smile is more aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also better for your overall well-being, keeping other teeth from shifting or also being lost. Our tooth replacement options include:
And if you need several restorative dentistry procedures in combination to bring your damaged smile back to life, Drs. Mauck and Ricci can perform a full-mouth reconstruction.
Missing teeth are many patients biggest fears. One way to replace a missing tooth is with a bridge. This is accomplished by connecting three or more crowns together and then permanently cementing or bonding it onto two anchor teeth which are in front of and behind the missing space(s). This provides a great permanent solution for a patient that is missing one or more teeth especially when a dental implant is not an option. One big advantage of a bridge over an implant is that it can be completed in just two visits. Dr. Mauck and Dr. Ricci will always make sure that the best option is selected to meet all of your esthetic and functional needs.
Dental Implants & Implant Restoration
Dental implants aren’t anything new in the world of tooth replacement, but they’ve never been better at replacing missing teeth than they are today. In fact, modern dental implants are the most effective method for completing a gapped smile. They are tiny titanium screws that act as prosthetic roots to support the tooth replacement that sits on top. Keep reading to learn about this fantastic option in tooth replacement!
