You don’t have to lose your teeth – we can help you restore them! We understand that losing a tooth can be incredibly daunting. We offer several Tucson restorative dentistry to help you get your smile back. Dr. Newman and his team are highly skilled in providing quality, personalized care for every patient.
Why Worry About Missing or Damaged Teeth?
There are many reasons to worry about missing or damaged teeth. For one thing, teeth play an important role in speaking and chewing. When teeth are missing or damaged, it can be challenging to eat correctly, and people may have trouble speaking clearly.
Additionally, missing or damaged teeth can cause a person to feel self-conscious about their appearance. In extreme cases, missing teeth can even lead to problems with the jawbone.
Because of all these potential problems, taking good care of your teeth and regularly seeing a dentist are essential. Taking these precautions can help ensure that your teeth will stay healthy and strong for years to come.
Treatments to Restore or Replace Teeth
Maintaining excellent dental health is a dynamic, ongoing process. Sometimes, it just means keeping your teeth and gum clean with good hygiene, regular dental exams, and routine cleanings. However, other times, it may require actively addressing a problem with one or more of your teeth, such as a severe chip, fracture, break, or the complete loss of the tooth.
Restorative dentistry allows us to repair compromised teeth to restore their health and integrity and helps you avoid the loss of the tooth or the need to extract it. It also allows us to replace lost teeth with highly lifelike replicas to reestablish your smile’s healthy appearance and proper function.
To ensure every patient receives the high-quality, personalized treatment they deserve, we offer several restorative dental treatments, including:
Tooth-colored fillings are made from a durable, tooth-colored composite resin material designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural tooth. We use this type of filling to repair teeth damaged by decay.
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” placed over a tooth to cover it and restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns can be made from different materials, including metals, porcelain, and ceramic. A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth by placing artificial teeth in the space created. Dental bridges are usually made from metals, porcelain, or ceramic.
Same-day crowns are made using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology. This technology allows us to design and create your dental crown in a single visit!
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the natural root of a tooth. Once the implant has bonded with the jawbone, a tooth-colored restoration (crown) is placed on top. Dental implants are an excellent option to replace one or more missing teeth.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is a treatment used to save a tooth damaged by decay or infection. During this procedure, we remove the pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels), and the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and sealed.
Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and match your natural teeth. Dentures can be complete or partial. Partials can replace one or more missing teeth when some natural teeth remain.
