At Dental Arts of Tellico Village, we make restorative dentistry a priority. We offer a wide variety of restorative services to make sure your smile is everything you want it to be. We want all of our patients to get the care they need!
If your tooth is damaged (cracked, decayed, has a large filling, etc.), Dr. Angie might recommend capping it with a crown. Crowns not only restore structure, they also strengthen the structures supporting the damaged tooth. Crowns are also a great way to protect weakened teeth from decaying further.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, we might suggest dental bridges as a possible solution. Dental bridges are anchored to your natural teeth on either side of the gap in your mouth. A false tooth (or teeth) are fixed in between your natural teeth to restore your smile.
Partial dentures are used when at least one upper or lower tooth remains. Partials are a removable appliance that have false teeth attached to a naturally colored base. Partial dentures are a solution for the gaps in your smile, and they will also make sure your remaining teeth stay properly aligned.
There are two types of complete dentures, immediate and conventional. Conventional dentures are placed in the mouth two to three months after all teeth are removed. Immediate dentures are available to wear right after the teeth are removed. However, bones and gums are always shrinking, meaning immediate dentures are normally just a temporary fix until conventional dentures are ready to be worn.
Fillings are a great choice to repair decaying teeth. At Dental Arts of Tellico Village, we will remove the damaged part of your tooth and fill it in. There are several types of fillings, allowing you to choose the best option for you. Tooth-colored fillings are popular because they restore your smile to its natural look.
These artificial tooth roots are an ideal way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are fixed into the jaw bone with surgery, and the attached replacement tooth is nearly identical to a normal tooth. Implants can fix problems with chewing and resolve pain. They’re durable, and they can quickly restore a smile to normal. Dr. Angie is an implant dentistry expert, which means you’ll be in great hands at Dental Arts of Tellico Village.
