How restorative dentistry from your Mill Creek dentist can save your smilerestorative dentistry

If you have a damaged tooth, restorative dentistry can help. Restorative dental procedures have become state-of-the-art. Your dentists at Penny Creek Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Mill Creek, WA want to share the facts about different dental restorative procedures that will enhance, strengthen and save your smile.

If you have large, bulky, crumbling metal fillings, you may want to think about replacing them with dental crowns. Dental crowns protect the entire visible surfaces of your teeth. When you bite or chew, you can be assured that your teeth are protected and won’t fracture or break off. You can choose from several materials, including porcelain-fused-to-metal and full porcelain.

Dental bridges can fill in the spaces where you are missing teeth. The teeth adjacent to the spaces are prepared to retain the bridge. The bridge consists of crowns, called abutments, to go on the adjacent teeth, and prosthetic teeth, called pontics, to fill in the space. Bridges restore full chewing ability and give you a complete and beautiful smile.

Another choice to replace missing teeth is dental implants. Dental implants look just like natural teeth, and you clean them just like natural teeth too. The dental implant is placed in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. Your bone will begin to grow and fuse with the implant. After the implant is fully secured by bone and healed, a beautiful implant crown is placed on top of the implant. You now have tooth replacement that functions and looks just like a natural tooth.

These are just a few of the restorative procedures your dentists will use to restore and save your smile.
