Teeth become damaged over the years, even if you do your very best to practice at-home care and attend regular checkups and cleanings. The fact is these habits reduce the need for restorative treatments like dental crowns, bridges and fillings. If your tooth is damaged, either as a result of injury or extensive tooth decay, our durable and long-lasting crowns can restore your smile’s functions all without making dramatic changes to its appearance! To get started on your restorative treatments, give our office a call!
Teeth can become damaged in a variety of ways, but the most common causes include tooth decay due to unremoved plaque. In some cases, decay can become so serious that the tooth requires a full-blown extraction. Regardless of how damaged your tooth may be, we can restore your smile using natural-looking dental crowns and bridges made from trustworthy and durable dental ceramics. Using our digital impression scanner, we can create highly-detailed restorations that fit exactly over your damaged teeth.
If you’ve had dental fillings placed in the past, you likely have small amounts of silver amalgam material inside of your tooth or teeth. While these fillings may be effective at restoring teeth, they aren’t without their drawbacks. At Fromuth & Langlois Dental, we utilize tooth-colored composite resin to restore teeth with your smile’s appearance in mind. Plus, because composite resin does not expand and contract in the same way as amalgam, you don’t have to worry about your filling fracturing your natural tooth over time.
Extensive tooth loss affects millions of people every day, with an estimated 40 million Americans missing all of their teeth. Whether it’s due to old age or as a result of chronic conditions like gum disease, our office can help you restore your smile and expand your diet via comprehensive restorations like full or partial dentures. Full dentures rely on the natural suction and shape of your mouth to stay in place, while partial dentures use metal hooks to secure around existing teeth. Both use acrylic and ceramic materials to blend in with your current oral structures.
In the event that tooth decay reaches the center of your tooth and the vulnerable pulp becomes infected, root canal therapy can not only remove the pain caused by your oral infection, but save your tooth in the process. Our office will always take the steps possible to save natural teeth, and root canal therapy gives us a chance to remove existing infected tissue and restore your tooth via a dental crown. We’ll make sure to go over all the steps of your treatment and aftercare in greater detail.
