Crowns and bridges are two of the most tried and trusted treatments in all of dentistry when it comes to repairing damaged teeth and replacing missing ones. A crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that simply fits over the top of a natural tooth to bring back its original shape, size, and appearance all at the same time. In the case of a missing tooth, a crown can actually be attached to one or more prosthetic teeth to literally “bridge” the gap in a patient’s smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are an improvement over traditional silver fillings in almost every way you can imagine. The composite resin material is extremely strong and durable, and it can also be color-matched to a patient’s teeth to ensure it doesn’t alter the appearance of their smile. Plus, it allows our team to restore the teeth using smaller fillings, enabling us to preserve more of a tooth’s natural strength and structure. The end result? A tooth that looks great and can be trusted to stand the test of time.
Most dental offices will take at least two appointments to repair a tooth with a dental crown, but Meadowbrook Dentistry isn’t your typical office. With our in-house CAD/CAM technology, we can fully repair your tooth in just one well-planned and comfortable visit so you can spend less time worrying about your teeth and more time simply enjoying your smile! We can design, fabricate, and mill a completely custom-made crown while you just sit and relax in our office.
If multiple missing teeth are affecting your life every day, then our custom-made dentures can provide the solution you need. Thanks to recent advances in dental prosthetics, dentures of all kinds are now smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever. Partial dentures can fill in the gaps left by multiple missing teeth, while a full denture can restore an entire row of teeth. No matter what your smile needs, we’ll know just how to rebuild it to last a lifetime.
Every tooth has a small amount of soft tissue inside it called the dental pulp, and this is actually where the delicate nerve of the tooth is located. When this tissue becomes infected or damaged, it can cause quite a bit of pain-- the kind that prevents you from concentrating on anything else. Fortunately, we can relieve this kind of discomfort with a root canal, where your dentist will remove this infected tissue and save your tooth. Thanks to modern dental techniques and sedation, you can rest assured that you’ll remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
While we strive to help all of our patients keep their natural teeth for as long as possible, sometimes, the best course of action is simply to remove one. This is often the case if:
