- Metal-Free Fillings
Tooth fillings are used to restore a tooth that has become damaged due to decay or trauma. Their purpose is to seal a small hole in your tooth (i.e., a cavity) and prevent further damage and demineralization caused by bacteria.
At our modern Hattiesburg practice…See what makes us different…, we use composite fillings to resemble your natural tooth in a discreet and aesthetically beautiful way.
When placing fillings, your dentist will first remove all the decay and prep your tooth. Then, he or she will bond your filling onto your tooth’s surface using high-quality materials. The filling is shaped to blend into your smile and allow for a comfortable bite. It is then polished for a beautiful smile restoration.
The result is a seamless restoration of your tooth in a non-invasive and effective way.
- Crowns & Bridges
Two of the most common restorative dentistry solutions are crowns and bridges. Here is a breakdown of each treatment:
When your tooth is cracked, fractured, or decayed, a dental crown may be the ideal option. Much like a cap, a crown is placed over a damaged tooth to restore its function and strength.
Your crown is designed using state-of-the-art technology and is gently placed by our restorative dental experts. During the placement, your natural tooth is prepared, and impressions are taken. Then we use this data to create your crown and place it over your tooth.
The crown matches the color and shape of your other teeth for a more discreet restoration.
A bridge is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth. It consists of two crowns bonded to either side of an artificial tooth.
Each bridge is custom-made to your individual needs. Using impressions, our doctors can create a bridge that comfortably fits into your smile.
Once the appliance has been made, the crowns are placed over the adjacent teeth (to the gap). They act as anchors that hold the artificial tooth in place.
Bridges help maintain your tooth’s natural look and function and prevent future dental problems.
- Inlays & Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are used to restore and strengthen teeth that have been severely damaged. These restorations are custom-made to replace missing pieces from your tooth so you can enjoy a fully-functional smile once again.
Many people are unsure of the difference between inlays and onlays, so here it is:
Inlays are placed when the damage is between the little points or cusps on premolars or molars.
Onlays, on the other hand, are used when the damage extends between one or more of the cusps and onto the chewing surface.
These restorations are more durable than dental fillings and provide a more conservative approach compared to dental crowns. Both of these restorations are strong and long-lasting solutions that provide excellent aesthetic and functional outcomes.
