Restorative Dentistry – Green Bay, WI
Bring Back Your Smile
Nobody’s perfect! If you have a broken, decayed, or missing tooth, this is completely normal, even for people who take good care of their teeth! Nonetheless, if you’re walking around with a compromised smile, it’s probably affecting both your self-confidence and oral health in many ways that you don’t even notice. Even a single damaged/missing tooth can start a chain reaction that leads to even more dental issues in the future, all of which can easily cause you to feel even worse about your smile.
To help save your smile and your confidence at the same time, Dr. Scott Quandt can utilize restorative dentistry. With the services listed below, he can give your smile everything it has lost and more in just one or two easy appointments. If you have any questions about these treatments, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment for restorative dentistry in Green Bay, please contact us today.
If you have a tooth that is cracked, chipped, or severely decayed, you’ll need a restoration that offers a level of protection that is not offered by a filling. When your tooth is weak, porcelain crowns make it possible to protect your teeth from further damage or decay. If you’re concerned that the spotlight will shine on your most recent piece of dental work, not to worry! Also called “caps,” they are made up of a solid material that can be matched to your natural tooth color, size, and shape.
In the past, dentists used amalgam fillings to restore and protect damaged and decayed teeth. However, with some patients experiencing allergies to metal, and with more individuals wanting a more visually appealing option, tooth-colored or white fillings are now a safe and effective solution. Using a composite resin that matches your natural tooth color, your dentist in Green Bay will be able to not only protect your tooth and seal it more thoroughly than with traditional amalgam fillings, but they will also be able to create an attractive and healthy-looking smile.
If you’re missing a tooth or several, you’re going to need a tooth replacement solution that offers greater stability, functionality, and looks natural. While dentures and fixed bridges are still viable options, more patients are turning to dental implants to restore their smile. These small titanium posts act like your tooth’s root, creating a strong foundation for your customized restoration that will sit on top of the implant. There’s no need to worry about the negative effects of missing teeth when dental implants can offer a new and improved look and feel.
Dental Implants for Dentures
Patients who are missing all their teeth often believe traditional dentures are their only option. Advancements in dentistry have made it possible to offer these patients the same stability and functionality as those individuals who have lost only one or a few teeth. Implant-retained dentures can restore a smile, enhance facial appearance, and improve functionality for someone who has battled slippage, messy adhesives, and frequent adjustments. Using between 4 and 6 dental implants, Dr. Quandt can create a more comfortable and permanent smile in a matter of months.
If you’re missing a tooth, or even several teeth in a row, we can fill that gap with a dental bridge. We’ll place a durable dental crown over each tooth at the end of the space in your smile, and literally bridge the gap with as many crowns in between as you need. No one should be able to tell the difference between your bridge and the rest of your natural teeth. Simply brush as normal and floss under the bridge crowns, and your restoration should last for years to come.
