Restorative Dentistry in Scottsdale, AZ
Restorative Dental Services
In the case your natural tooth has decayed and is missing parts of its overall structure, you’ll want to invest in dental restoration. “Why?”, you might ask. Well, a tooth that is missing parts is both exposed to the harmful elements of the food you consume, and it is also more likely to break during eating. If you are experiencing either decayed or missing tooth structure, please do not wait until it advances into significant pain! Call us today.
Here are the services we offer for restoration.
This service is most appropriately suggested when a tooth has decayed from a cavity, is broken, cracked, or chipped down from misuse (such as opening a bottle cap or tooth grinding.) While there are many cases in which a filling may be used, the process for this treatment is fairly straightforward.
First your AccuCare dentist will provide local anesthetic to numb the area from any pain. He will then clear away any tooth decay in the area, exposing the left over healthy tooth. From there, one of our fillings solutions will be placed and cured inside the area in order to restore the tooth to it’s full original structure.
We think a filling should not only be long term functional, but also aesthetic! That’s why we only offer White Composite filling – a white resin solution that is bonded to the natural tooth.
This type of filling looks like your natural tooth, and during the dental procedure our dentists will go the extra mile to ensure it blends in with the rest of your natural teeth. This is a great benefit, because most patients dislike the color of traditional amalgam (metal) fillings.
In cases where little to no natural tooth is left, dental crowns are the optimal restoration solution.
A dental crown is a tooth shaped “cap” that is placed entirely over the original tooth. The crown covers the tooth all the way from the gum line to the the very top. It is cemented to the natural tooth using a strong bonding adhesive. Because of the total coverage, dental crowns are exceptional in preventing any further decay.
