Dental Implants, Bridges, & Other Restorative Services in Durham
- Dental Implants: A dental implant is the best replacement option for a lost tooth in terms of how it accurately replaces the missing tooth. A post is surgically implanted into your mouth and the false tooth is attached to the post. This dental implement has the longest lasting durability and and is a strong replacement option.
- Dental Bridges: Another option for a missing tooth or missing teeth is a dental bridge. Unlike an implant a bridge is connected via the surrounding the teeth. The false tooth is placed between existing teeth and connected using dental crowns.
- Dental Crowns: Crowns are synthetic caps placed on top of teeth. There are a few reasons this is done. If a tooth breaks or cracks, a crown might be best for keeping the tooth together. Also if you get a root canal or a dental bridge, a dental crown might be necessary.
- Dental Fillings: When decay spreads to teh dentin of a tooth it is necessary to remove the decay and fill it in. Otherwise the decay could continue to spread until the tooth is irreversibly damaged. If you have a cavity we can fill it, or if you have an issue with a filling we can replace it.
