Full & Partial Dentures
When you’ve lost several teeth, a majority of teeth, or even all of your teeth, the simplest activities like eating and speaking become embarrassingly difficult. Thankfully, dentures provide fast, cost-effective coverage and support for your smile! Dr. Nassar offer both full prosthetics that restore entire arches and partial prosthetics that restore certain teeth along a single arch. Both of these models are removable, which means patients clean them separately and store them while sleeping for added comfort. If you’re looking for a sturdier tooth replacement solution, implant-retained dentures are also available at our practice. Click here to learn more.
Other Restorative Services
There are two parts to the dental implant restoration procedure: implant placement and crown placement. During the first procedure, we will begin by placing a titanium implant through your gums and into the bone where the tooth is missing. This serves as a replacement for the root of the tooth to allow you to eventually regain full function and bite strength. This implant bonds with the bone to create a secure, anchored point to attach a crown which replaces the visible portion of a tooth.
At this time, impressions will be taken to ensure the crown is crafted to fit the shape and size of the gap between the surrounding teeth. Then, the crown will be placed onto the implant filling to fully restore your smile. Each crown is designed specifically to match the current color of your surrounding teeth and shaped to provide the best look and feel.
During your procedures, you won’t feel a thing as we will use a numbing shot or local anesthetic to keep you comfortable and pain-free. After the operation, you may experience some soreness which can be easily treated with ice, rest, or any prescription medication we discuss with you during your appointment. With proper care, your implant restoration will be a permanent solution to replace your missing tooth and improve your dental hygiene. Click here to learn more.
Dental fillings are used to fill cavities and repair cracked or broken teeth. Fillings can be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam, but is most commonly done with materials called composite resin fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth.
Additional steps are required for tooth-colored fillings because it requires multiple layers and a special light to dry and harden the area around the filling.
To fill a tooth, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the area around the tooth. A laser or air abrasion instrument will be used to remove the decayed area and your dentist will prepare the space for the filling by cleaning the cavity of bacteria and debris. In some cases, your dentist may apply a liner for your tooth called a glass ionomer to help protect the tooth and nerve before the tooth is filled. After your filling is complete, most dentists will polish the tooth to make it feel smooth and natural.
The procedure can vary in time and cost depending on the extent of the damage to the tooth. Click here to learn more.
