Below is a list of services we offer that focus on restoring the function of your teeth
Restorative Dental Services
A dental crown is a “cap” that’s placed over a tooth to cover and restore the tooth to functionality, strength, and positive appearance. It’s a procedure that produces long-lasting results and, when cemented fully into place, encases the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line.
Stuck in a position where you need multiple teeth replaced with dental implants and it seems like an impossible hurdle to overcome? All on 4™ dental implants cost less than a full set of dental implants and don’t necessitate as many implants as older, traditional methods.
Most of us know what dentures are and what they do, but modern dentures have come a long way. Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that replace natural teeth, and they can be full or partial: sometimes, just a few teeth need to be replaced. We custom create dentures for our patients in Waterville and beyond.
You know the drill here. Basically, we remove every trace of decay in the affected tooth, then fill it with any of a range of materials depending on what’s best for your tooth and its appearance. Cracked and/or broken teeth worn out from things like tooth grinding and nail biting can also be repaired with fillings.
Have a gap in your teeth created by the loss of multiple teeth? Dental bridges are the way to go. Supported by natural teeth or implants, a dental bridge completes your smile by bridging the gap. The false teeth in dental bridges can be made from porcelain, gold or alloys. Dental bridges bring your smile back to life!!
Not sure about getting a sinus lift as a precursor to dental implants? We can call it a “sinus augmentation” if that sounds better to our clients, but this procedure is actually not bad. Bone is grafted to the jaw and the sinus membrane is lifted to create additional room. It can be an essential step toward dental implants.
Bite reclamation is a cosmetic dental procedure conducted to restore teeth to their original shape and size. It can help fix issues that cause jaw pain from grinding and clenching to enamel erosion due to acid reflux. However, it’s primarily a cosmetic procedure conducted for aesthetic reasons, to make your smile shine!
A common procedure carried out to prepare clients for dental implants, bone grafting creates a strong platform for those dental implants and also encourages surrounding bone to regenerate. This can help restore the natural look of your face and bone grafting may be necessary before inserting dental implants.
