Westwood Dental, PC is committed to offering a full range of dentistry services. Whether you’ve had repairs or need a complete replacement, we recommend continual check-ups to assess your gums and bone density to assess the surrounding areas associated with your implant.
When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.request an appointment
When your teeth are missing, it greatly affects your smile. At the same time, the missing tooth has the potential to negatively affect your oral hygiene because of unprotected gum exposure. Dental bridges are one of many options aimed at improving the appearance and function of your teeth by replacing the missing tooth or teeth. During your exam, we will discuss whether or not dental bridges are right for you.request an appointment
Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are considered a conservative method of treating damaged teeth. They are used instead of placing a crown. Some dentists even use inlays and onlays to treat tooth decay. Instead of filling in the tooth, your dentist may use dental inlays and onlays.
Dental inlays and onlays are made in a dental lab and then fitted to your tooth. They are then bonded to your tooth.request an appointment
Cracked Tooth Repair
Cracked teeth can cause a variety of symptoms including pain while chewing, temperature sensitivities, and the release of biting pressure. It’s common for pain to come and go, which can make diagnosing the cause difficult.
While you chew, cracked pieces of your tooth move, causing the pulp within the tooth may become irritated. When biting pressure is released, the crack can close quickly resulting in sharp pain. If left untreated, the pulp will eventually become damaged and the tooth will constantly hurt, even when you are not chewing.
There are different types of cracks, and each should be evaluated to prevent tooth loss and infection.
At Westwood Dental, PC, we are proud to offer single tooth replacements to restore your smile. We know how important a full smile can be in making you feel comfortable and confident, which is why each tooth replacement is custom-made for the perfect fit, look, and feel. Our goal is to always do what is best for the dental health and needs of our patients.
Whether you have a tooth that needs to be replaced or a gap from a missing tooth, our expert staff is here to help. After an initial consultation and examination, we will discuss all of your treatment options and goals so that we can best correct your smile.
For most patients, tooth replacement treatment is often achieved with a simple tooth implant. This implant will act as a new root for a crown that will be made specifically to fit in the gap between the surrounding teeth. Both the tooth implant and crown will be custom-made for your mouth and will be natural-looking and comfortable so no one will know it isn’t your original tooth. A full tooth replacement can take several visits, but once it is over, you won’t even notice it!
