When damage or decay impacts teeth, dental restoration services repair and upgrade teeth so they look better, feel better, and work properly.
From minor to major restorations, Rochford Family Dental has the service you need to bring your teeth back to their original appearance and function.
Fillings are the most common dental restoration, as they repair everything from minor chips and cracks to cavities caused by tooth decay. The dentist drills the tooth to remove all the decayed material, and then fills it with composite resin. Quick, effective, and versatile, most people have had experience with fillings, and the modern form of the procedure is more straightforward and painless than ever!
Made of porcelain or ceramic a crown fits over a damaged tooth in order to strengthen and protect it. Normally recommended after a root canal or extensive damage, a crown fits over the tooth, covering it entirely.
Crowns are recommended when the tooth is heavily restored. This means if a tooth has a very large filling a crown may be recommended. Crowns are also recommended after root canals or if a tooth has numerous fractures.
Crowns are hand made by a dental lab artist with guidance from photos, shade guides and prescription instructions from Dr. Nantes and her team. This allows for the ceramic crowns to blend in with the esthetics of your natural teeth and look as natural as possible.
For patients with missing teeth surrounded by healthy remaining teeth, a bridge is an excellent option for tooth replacement. By using the surrounding teeth as anchor points for the appliance, the bridge fills in the gap with artificial replacement teeth. Versatile and effective, bridges are a great choice for tooth replacement.
