We’re ready to provide it, so contact us today.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
Repairing broken, weakened, or permanently stained teeth is now easier than ever thanks to a traditional dental crown. This tooth-shaped restoration is custom-made to fit over a patient’s damaged tooth, and it can be designed to bring back its structure, strength, and appearance all at the same time. They can be made from a variety of materials ranging from all-metal to all-porcelain, and with the right maintenance, they can be trusted to keep a tooth strong and functional for many years.
And, we can use two of them to “bridge” the gap left by missing teeth as well. Two dental crowns are placed on top of the teeth on either side of the space in the smile, and these are attached to prosthetic teeth to close it. Pretty simple, right? A bridge won’t only make a smile look much better, but it can also even out the bite and prevent the natural teeth from drifting out of place.
For decades, fillings have been used to quickly and effectively fix slightly damaged teeth and small cavities, and for a long time, they were made of a dark gray metallic material called amalgam. While this substance is quite strong and durable, it always left a large, obvious blemish on a tooth, and over time, it’s propensity to expand and contract with temperature changes made a tooth more likely to crack, leading to the need for even more dental work.
This is why our practice chooses to use only tooth-colored fillings made of a composite resin. This material can be specially shaded to make it practically invisible on the teeth, plus because it is metal-free, it won’t change shape due to the temperature. Even better, the composite also forms a stronger bond with enamel compared to amalgam, making the filling more solid, meaning the tooth can be trusted to stand the test of time as well.
Full & Partial Dentures
Millions of Americans are missing a significant number of teeth right now, and if this includes you, Premier Care Dental is ready to provide a relatively quick, easy, and natural-looking solution with custom-made dentures. A partial denture can replace multiple teeth while fitting in comfortably with the remaining ones, while a full denture can instantly restore an entire row of teeth. We can even provide implant-retained dentures to give you an unmatched hold you’ll always be able to trust.
When the innermost chamber of a tooth becomes damaged or infected, this usually brings on quite a bit of dental pain, and typically, the only way to relieve it and save the tooth from removal involves a root canal. For this, your doctor will gently remove the internal portion of the tooth, replace it with a packing material, and then fully restore the tooth with a dental crown. Thanks to dental sedation and an expert touch, this often feared procedure is now virtually painless.
While our number one priority is to help our patients preserve all of their natural teeth for as long as possible, sometimes, an extraction is simply the best way to go. This is often the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be restored
- Gum disease has deteriorated the bone supporting a tooth
- A baby tooth refuses to fall out naturally
- Room needs to be created for a denture/orthodontic treatment
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
The most often extracted teeth are actually the third molars, better known as the wisdom teeth. While they may have been useful for our caveman ancestors, these days, they only tend to cause problems, especially when they try to erupt. Most people simply don’t have enough room in their mouth to fit these teeth, leading them to cause pain and infections when they start coming in. We can perform safe and effective wisdom tooth extractions in-house so you won’t have to drive all over town looking for an outside specialist.
