If you are living with missing or damaged teeth as the result of accident, illness or injury then you may well have need for a restorative dentistry practice to get the health of your teeth back on track and enable you to live a better quality of life with more confidence. As experts in restorative dentistry, VIP Smiles can give you the smile makeover that you need here in Syracuse, Utah. We work with patients who value experience and caring in order to restore the functionality and appearance of their teeth.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
This term refers to a very intensive type of dental support that can involve fitting dental implants, adding fillings, doing crowns or ‘caps’ for eroded teeth and installing bridges where teeth are missing or so badly damaged or decayed that they need to be removed altogether. There are lots of options available within restorative dentistry that can increase the use and the look of your teeth, and VIP Smiles can guide you through this process. Our goal is to give you back a great smile and the confidence that goes with it, and help you to minimize future issues that are connected to the health of your mouth and teeth.
What Can Restorative Dentistry Help With?
This type of dental treatment can quite literally be life changing for some patients who are living with reduced use of their teeth. These procedures can support us to:
- Fill empty spaces in the mouth that may cause difficulties with eating
- Keep teeth properly aligned, which helps to prevent future decay
- Replace missing teeth which prevents proper chewing
- Help to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent plaque build up and the problems that this can cause
- Increase your health, self-esteem and appearance
What Are My Treatment Options?
Our experienced dentists will be able to assess the health and condition of your teeth and gums and work out an personalized treatment plan to get your smile back into optimal condition.
Fillings – If you have a cavity that needs treatment we can remove the decay and refill the tooth with several different types of material. One of the most popular is a resin composite in a natural white color that blends in with the natural tooth.
Crowns – If part of your tooth has broken off or become eroded, we may recommend a crown or cap. This is placed over your tooth to restore the shape, appearance and function and protect from further damage.
Bridges – A dental bridge may be used where teeth are completely missing or need to be removed due to advanced damage or decay. It’s composed of a crown at either end with an artificial tooth/teeth in between to fill gaps. A bridge works just the same as your natural teeth once in place and can also keep your other teeth from moving out of place.
Implants – Dental implants replace missing teeth with a simple structure consisting of a metal ‘anchor’ which is fitted into the bone, and a false tooth similar to a crown to replace what’s missing. It looks and feels like a natural tooth and can make a huge difference to your mouth and jaw.
Whatever your dental needs, VIP Smiles can support you to get rid of discomfort and achieve a great smile and better oral health.
