The goal of any dentist is to preserve natural teeth, but unfortunately, that’s not always possible. But with tooth restoration in Michigan City, we can repair or replace your teeth to create a beautiful smile and help maintain your dental health.
Contrary to popular belief, restorative dentistry is not simply about improving the look of your teeth – it is vital for your oral health and for preserving your other teeth. When there are empty spaces in your mouth, stress is put on your natural teeth because there is not as much surface area for chewing.
Missing teeth can also cause your other teeth to shift, which can prevent you from chewing. And odd-shaped gaps caused by missing teeth can provide vulnerable places where plaque-causing bacteria can build up. But using tooth restoration in Michigan City, we can fill in the empty spaces with implants, bridges, dentures or crowns, while protecting your natural teeth and preventing cavities.
Whatever tooth restorative option you choose, you can rest assured that your tooth repairs or replacements will be individually crafted to look both beautiful and natural.
We will always advise you that missing teeth should be replaced, and damaged teeth should be restored. Missing teeth can cause problems with your oral and general health, as well as with your self-esteem and confidence. Even mildly damaged teeth can allow bacteria to enter the center of the teeth, which can lead to infection and dental abscesses, and without intervention can even cause tooth loss.
The best tooth restoration in Michigan City will depend on your personal circumstances, clinical requirements and any preferences you may have. We will perform a detailed examination and discuss the relevant ways to repair or replace your missing teeth.
Options for Broken Teeth
There are a number of options to repair broken teeth, including:
• Veneers: Thin porcelain shells that are used in smile makeovers can also improve the appearance of and reinforce a chipped tooth;
• White fillings: Strong composite material is used to restore teeth;
• Crowns: For additional strength, a tooth-colored crown may be placed on the teeth.
Options for Missing Teeth
Options for missing teeth include:
• Dentures: Modern dentures are very realistic in terms of function and appearance;
• Bridges: Naturally looking bridgework replaces one or a few adjacent teeth;
• Dental implants: Dental implants are the only way your dentist can replace the tooth roots and support a denture, bridge, or crown.
