Restorative Dental Services in Greensboro, NC
Over time, your teeth can experience considerable damage from a whole range of causes from poor care to accidents, genetic reasons, and disease. Our team of dental professionals understand how important it is to be comfortable enough to smile and show your loved ones how happy you are without being ashamed of damaged teeth.
For this reason, we have put together a range of restorative dental services designed to help you get your smile back!
Crowns and bridges
If you have a decayed, damaged or a missing tooth, crowns and bridges can restore them, allowing you to smile confidently like before. A crown is used to restore one tooth while a bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth. At Dr. Walker’s dental clinic, we ensure the natural appearance of your teeth after crown or bridge treatment.
- Crown restorations are required after a root canal treatment as the tooth becomes more prone to fractures.
- Fractured teeth that can’t be fixed by a filling.
- Teeth supporting the adjacent bridge replacement need a crown restoration.
- To replace decayed tooth.
- Stained or discolored teeth need restorations.
- To replace an extensively damaged tooth that can no longer keep the filling intact.
More about crowns and bridges
Crowns and bridges are usually made up of ceramics such as porcelain and metals like gold. Porcelain crowns and bridges are custom made to sync well with the natural color or shade of the existing teeth. Gold fits the bill at the rear of the mouth where the utmost strength is required and appearance is not an issue. The tooth size is reduced so that a crown or a bridge fits over the existing teeth properly. We would recommend that you rinse your mouth regularly with salt water for the speedy recovery of the gums.
An impression of the prepared tooth is taken by a dentist and the dental lab makes the crown or a bridge using the material as per the specifications. A temporary crown or a bridge is fixed over your teeth until the permanent one has been made. The crown or a bridge is then cemented over the prepared tooth. The durability of the crowns and bridges varies and proper oral hygiene determines the longevity of the restorations.
Partials and dentures
Many of us don’t go in for replacement of missing teeth because we are afraid of visiting a dentist. At Dr. Judy Walker’s dental practice, we help you revive your confident and charming smile with our partial or complete dentures. With recent advancements, using dentures have become more comfortable. Along with comfort we make sure that the dentures look absolutely natural. We offer:
Complete dentures: Dr. Walker can make a patient a complete set of upper and lower dentures if desired. It takes five to six appointments and after the delivery of the dentures, additional adjustment appointments may be necessary to make the patient feel completely comfortable.
Partial dentures: We provide partial dentures to fill the gap caused by some of the missing teeth. These dentures keep all the teeth aligned and save them from further decay or infections in the gums.
Custom-fitted dentures: We also make custom dentures that suit your face structure and enhance you personality and smile. All the process is discussed with the patient along with the size and shape measurements beforehand.
By having your dentures made at Dr. Walker’s office you will experience:
High quality material: We are experts at making perfect dentures and use good quality material which makes the dentures durable. Your dentures will give a pearl shine to your smile.
Comfortable dentures: The first thing we care for is your comfort level while using the dentures. We shape your dentures so perfectly that you forget that you are wearing dentures.
Expert dental lab: Dr. Walker only uses high quality dental laboratories and high quality materials to ensure an excellent fit.
Natural looking dentures: Our goal is that every patient will enjoy a natural looking, custom smile that fits their lifestyle and personality.
Counseling: Our counseling experts will discuss all your dental problems and advise suitably. All the fears and phobias regarding the dentures are sorted out to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Pre- and post-fitting tips: Worried about getting used to dentures? We also provide you with tips on how to take care of your dentures and how to avoid any infections. The patients are also taught how to put on and take off the dentures with care along with many more useful tips.
Another option for teeth replacement is the installation of dental implants. These are small rods which are embedded into your jawbone which then provide a strong base for artificial teeth to be mounted upon.
If having removable or partial dentures does not appeal to you, then dental implants can make for a more sturdy and longer-lasting alternative.
