Reconstructive dentistry is a branch of oral health care focused on restoring the teeth in your upper and lower jaw.
Ultimately, the goal of reconstructive dentistry is to improve the appearance, function, and general wellbeing of your teeth and smile. People who aren’t missing all of their teeth can also benefit from reconstructive dentistry.
At Today’s Dentistry, the team regularly uses reconstructive techniques to repair multiple oral problems at one time, including cracked, discolored, and missing teeth.
Reconstructive dentistry varies from patient-to-patient. The team develops a custom treatment plan for your individual situation, ensuring you’re completely satisfied with the end results.
There are many reasons you might need reconstructive dentistry. These are a few common reasons:
If you chip or knock out a tooth because of a sports-related injury or automobile accident, it’s important to seek emergency dental treatment right away. At Today’s Dentistry, the team offers dental implants, dental crowns, veneers, and bridges that can repair the functionality and appearance of your teeth.
Gum disease and tooth decay are two other common causes of tooth loss. If your Today’s Dentistry provider detects an infection, they might recommend a root canal or extraction. Afterward, reconstructive dentistry treatments can prevent further decay or the spread of infection.
As you get older, your teeth yellow and weaken. This is especially true if you suffer from acid reflux or you regularly drink dark beverages like coffee or soda. If years of bad habits and poor oral hygiene have taken a toll on your teeth, your Today’s Dentistry provider might recommend reconstructive dentistry to whiten and strengthen your smile.
At Today’s Dentistry, the team offers a full suite of reconstructive dentistry services including:
The team also has a state-of-the-art CEREC milling machine on-site. The CEREC system is capable of manufacturing same-day veneers, bridges, and crowns.
The only way to determine if you’re a good candidate for reconstructive dentistry is to schedule an appointment at Today’s Dentistry.
Following an oral exam, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, the team can formulate a treatment plan that helps you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Make an appointment today by calling or clicking the online booking tool.
