Cavity Treatment with Tooth-Colored Fillings and Inlays or Onlays
Tooth-colored fillings are used to treat small to medium sized cavities. Made of composite resin, they are matched to the color of surrounding dental enamel providing a nearly invisible restoration. Tooth-colored fillings contain no toxic metals, such as mercury, making for preferred body-safe treatment. Since these fillings are bonded onto teeth, they also preserve the maximum amount of your tooth’s anatomy.
Inlays and onlays are ideal for cavities in molars because they strengthen teeth that provide the force used in chewing. After decay is removed, an impression is taken of the tooth, so a lab can fabricate a prosthetic. Prosthetics are made of durable porcelain, and they are matched to the surrounding enamel color. Inlays and onlays are cemented onto the tooth and provide a restoration that can last many years.
Root Canal Therapy and Porcelain Crowns Treat Severe Tooth Damage
If a cavity has reached the inner chamber of a tooth, Dr. Martinez may recommend root canal therapy. This treatment removes the infection from the tooth and prevents it from spreading to neighboring teeth and the rest of the body. Root canal therapy preserves the function of the tooth, so you can avoid the need of extraction.
Porcelain Crowns are placed on teeth with severe damage or after root canal therapy. Crowns encase a tooth, protecting it from further damage and preserving its function. They are lustrous and lifelike, and when cared for properly, crowns can last a lifetime.
Replace Missing Teeth with Aesthetic Prosthetics
Tooth loss is sometimes unavoidable, but with modern dentistry, there are several effective and aesthetic tooth replacement options:
• Dental Implant Restorations: These replace both a tooth root and tooth with a post implanted into the jaw bone and a beautiful porcelain crown. Implant supported restorations look and feel like a natural tooth, and they also preserve facial structure, helping you maintain a youthful appearance.
• Fixed Bridges: Permanent bridges replace missing teeth with lifelike pontic teeth that are cemented to adjacent teeth. The supporting teeth are first capped with porcelain crowns to make them a strong anchor to the pontic teeth. The entire bridge is matched to surrounding teeth for a restoration that is lifelike and functional.
• Dentures and Partial Dentures: Removable dentures are made of acrylic that is matched to your gums and pearly white prosthetic crowns that are natural and lustrous. Partial dentures are secured in the jaw with metal clasps that hook onto neighboring teeth. Denture that replace a full arch of teeth use adhesive paste to remain intact. Dentures are an attractive restoration that restore many of your teeth’s functions.
