Tooth enamel is not made of bone tissue; it contains no living cells, and thus it can’t heal if it has been injured. If a damaged or decayed tooth is left alone, it will only break down further until it’s no longer salvageable. Here at Little Rock Family Dental Care, we have a prosthodontist that specializes in fixing teeth with fillings and crowns to restore their shape, size, and overall appearance. Schedule a consultation with us today to explore your options for bringing your smile back to full strength with restorative dentistry in Little Rock, AR.
Over 90% of American adults will have at least one cavity in their lives. We can treat the decay, but we’ll need to do something about the natural tooth structure that was lost. A filling is a type of restoration that can be molded to fit into a cavity, reversing the damage and protecting the vulnerable inner layers of the tooth from infection. Our fillings are composed of a special resin that matches the rest of the smile, blending in so well that most people don’t even realize it’s there.
The natural crown is the part of the tooth that you can see in the mirror. When teeth have become cracked, broken, or misshapen, generally the best solution is a restoration called a dental crown – a “cap” that has been uniquely designed just for you. Crowns can be made out of porcelain, ceramic, gold, acrylic resin, and other materials; in terms of aesthetics, porcelain is typically the ideal choice for creating a more natural look.
If you’re concerned about keeping your compromised tooth safe until your crown is ready, you can relax. For the convenience of our patients, we can create restorations during a single visit using E4D CAD/CAM technology. Instead of taking impressions of the tooth, we’ll scan your mouth and use those images to create a digital model, allowing us to design the crown with extreme precision. After that, our in-office milling machine will sculpt the crown right then and there, and then we’ll place it immediately!
Is your smile unrecognizable due to serious problems like missing teeth, damage, decay, and wear? If this sounds familiar, we have the perfect solution. A full mouth reconstruction combines a variety of restorative dental services to help you achieve a complete smile transformation. Utilizing the latest treatments and technology, we offer full mouth reconstructions as a way for patients to get a second chance at a healthy, beautiful set of teeth.
Sometimes, a pearly white is so decayed or damaged that it can’t be saved; a dentist will pull it out in those cases. This procedure, best known as tooth extraction, removes the dying (or dead) chomper from the gum socket with specialized tools. Doing so ensures a dental infection won’t cause further harm or spread to other body parts. That said, a dentist will only perform this service as a last resort; they’ll always try to save your tooth before resorting to it.
While dentures have been around for literally hundreds of years, that doesn’t mean the dentures you receive today will be anything like what previous presidents or century-old civilizations used. They have come quite a long way since then in both function and esthetics, so you can feel confident about your future smile. Little Rock Family Dental Care is more than prepared to design and create a personalized denture for you and your family members, so don’t hesitate to call us today to schedule your first appointment!
