& Second Opinions
About 120 million people in the United States have lost at least one tooth. Many others suffer from broken or decayed teeth. Chances are that you’ll run into some kind of dental trouble at some point in your life. When this happens, Dr. Crumpton always takes a compassionate approach to treatment, offering restorations that will help strengthen your teeth while also letting you regain your confidence. Reach out to schedule a restorative consultation.
Crowns help protect and strengthen teeth that are badly decayed, injured, or even just weakened. Bridges are used to replace one or more teeth in a row so that the rest of your smile doesn’t start to drift into the gap. For both types of restorations, we’ll use a tooth-colored ceramic material that matches the rest of the smile so well that it doesn’t look like any major dental work was needed at all. You can leave our office feeling fully secure about your new grin!
Silver fillings used to be the norm when it came to treating cavities, but nowadays tooth-colored composite resin is more heavily favored by both patients and dentists. Patients love them because of how well they match the rest of the tooth while dental professionals love how they can be placed without undercuts, making it easier to save healthy tooth structure. Be sure to get in touch with us at the first sign of a cavity so that a filling can be placed as soon as possible.
How long are you expecting to wait for a dental crown? Thanks to CEREC, you no longer have to spend days or weeks with a temporary restoration; the permanent one will be ready in just one short appointment! We scan your mouth after preparing the tooth in question, and special software is used to design the crown. Then the physical restoration is made right here in our office out of a block of ceramic material before being placed on the same day.
From ancient times, people have been using dentures in one form or another to replace missing teeth. Today, you have two highly comfortable and customizable options to choose from: full dentures that replace your entire dental arch and partial dentures that fill in multiple spaces at once. You can also get dentures that are anchored to dental implants, granting them additional stability and giving you a new smile that you never have to worry about slipping out of place.
