You can restore your smile’s health by repairing any cavity or a dental infection. If your teeth become worn down or damaged, then call our office 816-452-9700 about restorative dentistry. Using custom dental restorations made from strong and lifelike materials, we can help improve the health, function, and yes, even the appearance of your smile.

Fillings and Crowns

One of the more common issues we encounter is tooth decay. Cavities form when poor oral hygiene or injury enable harmful bacteria to move past the outer enamel and reach the more sensitive inner layers of tooth structure. Tooth sensitivity and toothaches may develop. In order to treat the cavity, we may offer a solution in one visit. With dental fillings, we employ a composite resin, which is metal-free and can be shaded to match the rest of your tooth. We remove the decay and place the filling to treat your tooth. If the issue is severe, or if you have a chipped or cracked tooth, we may recommend a crown. Made and placed in one visit, our ceramic crowns look natural and absorb the bite forces and pressure a natural tooth can. As a result, you can enjoy strong and long-lasting repair.

Addressing Infection

If you don’t have your cavities treated in time, or if the injury is more substantial, then bacteria may reach the inner pulp, the tissues that keep your tooth alive and healthy. An infection then arises, which leads to pain when eating swelling near the tooth, fever, and even a discharge from the tooth. In extreme cases, you could even lose the tooth altogether. However, with a root canal procedure, we have a restorative option to remove the infected tissue and protect the tooth. Following treatment, we cap the tooth with a lifelike, same-day dental crown.

Stopping Your Tooth Loss

What if you lose a tooth entirely? We have restorative options to fill the gaps in your smile, returning your smile to optimal health, function, and beauty. For minor tooth loss, we may place a bridge, which addresses between one and three missing teeth in a row. We also have partial and full dentures for more substantial cases of tooth loss. Our team may discuss implant dentistry as well, which offers longer-lasting and more lifelike replacement options for minor and severe tooth loss. If you have any questions about our restorative procedures, or if you have an aching, damaged, or lost tooth, then please contact our team today.
