Sometimes our smiles need a little extra help to get back to being in great condition. Whether from wear and tear, dental disease, dental trauma, or something else, our teeth can start showing signs of decay and damage. If that’s currently happening to you, know that Chesterfield Dentistry can guide you on the path toward wellness with restorative dentistry, which includes a wide range of treatments. All you have to do is contact our practice to set up your consultation.
Have a cavity? After we’ve cleaned away all the decay inside a tooth, we can place a dental filling in the space that’s been hollowed out by that decay so your tooth is protected and strengthened. The benefit of this type of filling is that it blends seamlessly with your natural tooth color for a natural appearance.
Working as a durable cap over a tooth, a dental crown comes in handy for fixing several oral health issues. It can strengthen a tooth weakened by decay, a large filling, or a crack. It can also be used to cover up a tooth that is severely discolored or misshapen. We use dental crowns to support dental bridges and to finish dental implants as well.
If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, one of your replacement options is a dental bridge. This bridge includes an artificial tooth or artificial teeth to replace the ones you’re missing and secures onto your natural teeth on either side of the gap.
For those who are missing a lot of teeth, like say a whole arch, dentures may be the better option. We offer both full and partial dentures, and regardless of which you need, we take great care designing them to look natural and feel comfortable.
Dental implants are another popular solution for missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to mimic a natural tooth, with an artificial root and crown. They’re often considered a “permanent” tooth-replacement option because they are fixed in place and are meant to last many, many years.
When problematic wisdom teeth are left untreated, it can lead to some serious dental health issues down the line. Wisdom teeth removal gives you the chance to avoid these problems before they even arise. Extracting wisdom teeth is a simple, common procedure and could save you a lot of stress in the future.
Root canal therapy may have a bad reputation, but it might be what’s standing between saving or losing your tooth if it’s severely infected. Many people worry that the procedure hurts, but in reality, it’s meant to save you from the pain of a tooth infection and the most you’ll feel during the treatment is a little bit of pressure.
