Types of Smile Restoration Treatments
We believe that everyone should feel confident in their smile. If you don’t like how your smile looks or feels, our Amherst dentist can help you achieve a better smile by using one or several of the following smile restoration treatments.
Do you want to fill in the gap that a missing tooth left behind? There are more options today than there used to be. Dental implants have been used instead of bridges and dentures to replace missing teeth. The treatment requires minor surgery where your implant is embedded into your jawbone to hold your prosthetic tooth.
For smile restoration where dental decay is present, fillings are typically going to be used unless your dentist cannot salvage the tooth.
Your dentist will begin by cleaning the tooth and removing the damage. The filling material that best matches the existing color of your teeth will be molded into the area and hardened. Getting a filling is quick and straightforward.

Dental crowns are protective dental caps that are placed onto the tooth to prevent further damage and also strengthen teeth that have become weak. Dental crowns can be made from porcelain or zirconium. In the past, you may have had your teeth capped with amalgam, but that is not often used anymore due to its conspicuous appearance and containing mercury. Porcelain especially looks very tooth-like, durable, and long-lasting. Your crowns can last decades when you take good care of your teeth.
Dental bridges have significant benefits aside from fixing your smile’s appearance. Having a dental bridge placed can even out the pressure your teeth put on your jawbone. When you have missing teeth, the surrounding teeth take more pressure which can cause issues when left untreated. Dental bridges also help you talk and chew easier. Reach out to our dentist today to talk about dental bridges for your smile restoration.
You may require dentures if you have lost your teeth to dental decay, gum disease, injury, hormonal changes, etc. Dentures, partial or total, can help you regain a beautiful and functioning smile.
Teeth are far more likely to fall out if someone is not diligent about oral hygiene. That includes daily brushing, flossing, mouthwash at home, and regular teeth cleanings with your dentist.
