Restorative Dentistry Treatments Can Help You Achieve a Brilliant Smile
Patients with missing or damaged teeth can have the appearance and function of their smiles restored at Kids and Grownups Dental through our wide range of restorative dentistry treatments. Dental damage can occur at any stage of life, which is why our doctors provide the highest level of care for both children and adults living in the Irving, TX, area. Whether you are experiencing a cavity, cracked tooth, or complete tooth loss, we can provide the necessary treatment in a comfortable environment.
Cavities are a normal occurrence for patients of all ages. When a cavity occurs, it can lead to dental sensitivity and other aggressive side effects if not treated timely. For patients with minor to moderate tooth decay, we offer tooth-colored fillings. These dental fillings are comprised of composite resin, a mixture of acrylic and ceramic, and are color-matched to the natural shade of your tooth to provide both a durable and realistic restoration.
Inlays and Onlays
When tooth decay is located within the biting surface of your tooth and cannot be suitably treated with a dental filling, we offer inlays and onlays. An inlay is recommended when the damage has occurred within the cusps of your tooth. If the damage extends down the sides of your tooth, an onlay is generally recommended. Made from either composite or porcelain, your restoration will blend naturally with your tooth.
Traditional dental crowns provide patients who have severely decayed, cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth the opportunity to maintain their natural teeth. Made from medical-grade porcelain, the dental crown will cover the damaged tooth and restore its structural integrity. For patients with a single missing teeth, we also offer implant-supported crowns for greater strength and durability.
If you are missing one to three adjacent teeth, a dental bridge can restore the form and function of your smile. This restorative device consists of at least one fake tooth (pontic) flanked by two dental crowns. It is generally made from a single block of porcelain so the piece provides a seamless bond. A dental bridge can be supported by abutment teeth on either side of the gap or with two dental implants.
Whether you are experiencing a cavity, cracked tooth, or complete tooth loss, we can provide the necessary treatment in a comfortable environment.
If you are missing an entire arch of teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both, we provide both traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile. Traditional dentures sit directly on the gums and are secured with suction and a dental adhesive. If you are looking for a more durable and permanent solution, implant-supported dentures are unrivaled in stability and support, and they offer many oral health benefits, as well. Although they are generally more expensive than traditional dentures, many patients consider implant-supported dentures to be an investment in their future oral health because they provide longer-lasting results.
Dental implants are effectively operate like natural tooth roots. These small titanium or ceramic posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone, where they will fuse with your jawbone to support a crown, bridge, or denture. The type of restoration recommended will depend on the severity of your tooth loss. Dental implants promote better oral health and serve as a lasting solution to replacing missing teeth.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
In cases where there has been dental trauma or extensive damage and decay, we can combine a number of the procedures listed above to provide a complete full mouth reconstruction. A full mouth reconstruction allows our doctors to restore both dental function and oral health to improve your quality of life.
