Maintain A Healthy, Beautiful Smile With Restorative Dentistry
Taking care of damaged or missing teeth isn’t merely a cosmetic concern as you may think. Many people that have missing teeth in the back of their mouth think that they can just live without those chompers since they don’t show when smiling. But actually, waiting to replace a tooth could lead to other oral and overall health problems.
For one thing, if you don’t replace a missing tooth, your surrounding teeth will undergo undue stress because they will be forced to compensate when you have to chew food. With enough damage done to the teeth surrounding a missing tooth, you may experience more tooth loss and that hole in your smile could get even bigger.
Perhaps you have a damaged tooth but think you can maintain it by avoiding chewing in that area of your mouth. The trouble is, without properly addressing that damaged tooth, the problem will only get worse and you’ll be damaging your other chompers because they’ll experience too much stress as described above in the case of a missing tooth.
The best thing to do when you have a dental issue is fix it as soon as possible. No matter the problem, we have restorative solutions for you at our South Bend, IN dental office. We will thoroughly assess your situation and recommend a treatment that will get you out of pain and back to living a normal life free of dental troubles.
If you have a cavity, we will clean away the decay and bacteria and rebuild your tooth to its ideal shape using a tooth-colored filling. Unlike the unsightly metal fillings of the past, no one will be able to tell you had dental work done!
If you waited too long to address a cavity and the decay has penetrated the outer layer of your teeth and infected the soft tissue within, we can still help you save your tooth with a gentle root canal. Contrary to urban myths, a root canal is no more uncomfortable than a simple filling.
We can also strengthen, protect, and improve the appearance of a damaged tooth with a custom dental crown that completely caps your natural tooth. Dental crowns can be used in a variety of situations, including:
- A tooth that has become weakened from extensive damaged and repeated dental treatments
- A cracked tooth
- A chipped tooth
- A tooth that has become worn-down
For those that have completely lost a tooth or multiple adjacent missing teeth, we also offer dental bridges to fill the gap in your smile.
Even if you need a full-mouth reconstruction, we have you covered at Tulip Tree Dental Care with a variety of dentures options.
The tooth replacement options we offer that are the closest thing to your natural teeth are dental implant services. Because dental implants literally fuse to your jawbone through a process called “osseointegration,” they create a strong, sturdy foundation for:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
Regardless of which restorative treatment you receive, we will keep you comfortable during your appointment with a variety of amenities, including:
- Cozy blankets
- Soft pillows
- TVs and radio to distract and entertain you
- Dental sedation options to relieve your dental anxiety
So you don’t have to screw up your work week, we offer evening hours on Tuesdays. We also accept a variety of payment options for your convenience.
