Improve the Appearance and Function of Your Teeth with Restorative Dentistry in Plano, TX
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that aims to restore the function and appearance of missing and badly damaged teeth, whether from infection, disease, decay, or trauma. If you have felt hopeless or embarrassed from any of these problems, you’re not alone! Almost three out of four Americans are missing at least one tooth.
1st In Smiles can restore your missing teeth and get you back on your way to a healthy, functioning, and attractive smile! Our advanced technology and experienced staff provide long-lasting restorative solutions with tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crowns, and dental implants.
Dental fillings are the most common form of restoration. They are used to fill holes from cavities and seal your teeth to protect them from further damage.
If you’re like many other American adults, you probably have at least one silver filling. Because a portion of your original tooth has to be removed for silver amalgam fillings, they can often weaken teeth. Your restorative dentist in Plano, TX has embraced recent advancements in technology that allow us to use tooth-colored fillings, which are stronger, safer, and more natural looking than silver fillings.
When too much of your tooth’s structure is removed to support a filling, we can cover your damaged tooth with a porcelain crown or “cap.” This restorative dentistry option, which looks like a natural tooth, will strengthen your tooth and prevent it from suffering further damage. You can read more about crowns and their ability to restore your damaged teeth on our Dental Crowns & Bridges page.
When you lose one or more teeth, a dental implant can securely replace the missing tooth’s root and crown. Dental implants are small, titanium screw-like “anchors” that are placed in your roots and permanently support replacement teeth or dentures on top. With implants, you’ll regain almost all of your speaking, chewing, and eating abilities as well as restore your facial structure.
After we carefully anchor your implant into your bone, the bone will begin to grow around the implant over a period of six weeks to six months. After your bone has healed, we’ll anchor your replacement teeth – crowns, bridges, or dentures – onto the implants, and you’ll walk out with a permanent new smile!
