Replacement Options

Read Transcript

Restorative Dentistry to me kind of encompasses fillings and crowns, as well. Restorative Dentistry, we offer white fillings and that's a great way for us to get rid of flossing cavities, so that prevents them from getting any bigger, also, while no one knows that you've had a filling there because we're doing a white filling in that area. Restorative Dentistry could be as simple as us doing a night guard because you're clenching and grinding your teeth and we want to prevent you from getting a crown on a particular tooth, so we might recommend a night guard. That's going to help preserve enamel and prevent you from clenching and grinding your teeth anymore. There's kind of a wide variety of restorative techniques that we can use, whether it's a minimal technique, like doing a filling, or a more complicated scenario of placing a crown or a bridge that allows you to get full function back to your teeth and without any pain or discomfort.

If you are missing teeth, we offer numerous teeth replacement options. Depending on your specific needs, we can help you find the best solution for you! Are you missing just one tooth? A dental bridge or dental implant may be the right option. Or are you missing an entire arch or a whole mouthful? We have dental implant solutions for that, too, as well as removable denture options. Regardless of your needs, we have a solution for you.

Repair a Damaged Tooth

Depending on the level of damage, our dental team can offer you a variety of repair options. We have dental crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, and fillings. Dental crowns are used for the most extensive damage, while inlays, onlays, and veneers are used for varying levels of damage in different areas of your mouth. Tooth fillings are used to correct the smallest areas of decay, called cavities.

Pain of Root Canals

Root canals are designed to take away your pain! If you are experiencing pain when chewing due to an infected tooth, we can perform a root canal to remove the infection, alleviate dental pain, and restore the health of your tooth. We use a local anesthetic to make sure you don’t feel any discomfort from the procedure. We also offer dental sedation if you are still nervous. Talk to our team about how a root canal can help you.

Tooth Filling Options

Here at Dental Care Center of South Kansas City, we use only tooth-colored filling materials: composite resin and glass ionomer. Both are cosmetically beautiful and will blend right in with your natural smile. These options are great alternatives to the metal amalgam fillings of the past.
