Restorative Services provided by the Dentist in St Clair Shores
Crowns & Bridges
Porcelain crowns and bridgework are restorative solutions for tooth loss. Dental trauma, severe tooth decay, root canal infection, and gum disease are common causes of tooth loss. Not only can missing teeth affect your confidence, but it can also lead to other dental problems, such as shifting or loosening of your other teeth.
Crowns can be used to restore broken, severely decayed or weak teeth. Bridgework, when combined with supporting crowns or dental implants, can permanently replace missing teeth.
Our St. Clair Shores dentist is experienced in providing natural and beautiful porcelain crowns.
Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
Root canal therapy can be an effective solution for saving a deeply decayed tooth. Root canal therapy removes the decayed portion of the tooth as well as nerve of the tooth.
Our doctors are experienced in providing root canal therapy in a gentle and effective manner. Please contact our office with any questions about our sedation and anesthetic options or to schedule an appointment.
A dental implant, a tooth replacement option, is used to replace missing teeth or as an anchor to hold dentures or bridges in place. First your dentist will evaluate your bone structure to determine if you are candidate for a dental implant. Bone grafting may be available for those lacking adequate bone structure. Dental implants are typically made of titanium and are a permanent solution for tooth loss.
Dental implants allow for effective speaking, chewing and are the closest tooth replacement option to your natural teeth.
With modern sedation and anesthetics, dental implants can be placed with very little discomfort to the patient. Contact us for more information about dental implants.
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth. They are custom-made to look natural and fit comfortably in your mouth. Dentures are generally made of acrylic resin but can also be made of a combination of other metals.
There are two main types of dentures — complete and partial.
Complete dentures are used to replace all of your missing teeth.
Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth. They rest on a metal framework that is attached to your natural teeth. Partial dentures attach to your teeth with metal clasps or precision attachments.
Your St. Clair Shores dentist will help you to decide which type of denture is best for you.
