Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are the perfect solution to restoring the use of your damaged or decaying teeth. Our dentists will customize the fit of your crowns to make sure it matches the shape and texture of your existing teeth for a seamless fix. We specialize in dental restoration services including crown fittings at our office in Metamora, IL. Crowns are an easy, long-term solution for restoring your oral health and smile.
Another option to treat missing teeth is dental bridges. If you have lost a tooth, the gap can cause the rest of your teeth to shift, causing issues with your speech or even affecting your ability to eat. Our dental bridges are anchored with crowns on each side of the missing tooth or teeth and can last several years with good oral hygiene.
One of the most common restorative dental solutions for sensitive or painful teeth is a filling. Fillings are given when decay has set in on the surface, and sometimes within, your tooth, causing sudden instances of pain when chewing, biting, or eating certain foods. Once our dentists remove this decay using a small, low-speed drill, they will then fill the small hole with the filling composite to prevent any further damage from happening to the tooth. At our dentistry, we specialize in amalgam fillings that contain silver due to the longevity and affordability of the material. Here are just a few benefits of our amalgam fillings:
Root Canal Treatment
Root canals are necessary when the inside of a tooth has become inflamed, infected, and is causing the patient persistent pain. Our dentists have decades of experience providing root canals for patients with varying oral health conditions. During this treatment, a small incision in the infected tooth will be made to remove any pulp that is harming the tooth, clean the root canal, and fill the hollow space with a filling solution that will prevent further decay. Afterward, our dentists will protect the tooth with a crown that can last several years with proper maintenance. Here are some common facts that patients should know about root canal procedures:
Inlays & Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are necessary when a cavity is too large for a filling to restore. When a tooth has become weakened due to decay, an inlay may be a necessary solution to prevent further damage. Unlike standard fillings, inlays are a pre-fabricated material that is custom-fitted to your tooth to close any opening that was created when removing the cavity. A dental onlay is different in that it covers a larger area of your tooth, similar to, but smaller than a crown. Our dentists will create a mold of the missing area that needs to be replaced to fill the exact spaces with a durable and long-lasting composite material.
If you have a tooth that cannot be repaired using a crown or filling, one of the last restorative procedures our dentists recommend is having a tooth extraction. This is the removal of the tooth that can then be replaced by a partial denture or full dentures if you have several teeth in the same condition. The last thing you want is to have a decaying tooth that prevents you from eating, chewing, or talking.
