Restore Your Smile

Missing teeth, decayed, infected or broken teeth, if not repaired, can cause serious problems over time. Restorative dentistry can help restore your teeth to their natural health, beauty and function. At Lake Country Dental, we offer all aspects of restorative dental care from the simplest to the most complicated treatments, including full-mouth reconstruction.

Our dental restoration services include:

  • Dental crowns with CEREC technology
  • Dental implant restorations
  • Composite (tooth-colored) fillings
  • Inlays and onlays with CEREC technology
  • Endodontic treatment (root canals)
  • Dentures and dental partials
  • Dental bridges

Dental crowns may be used to protect a cracked tooth or restore a tooth with excessive decay to full function. Made out of ceramic, the dental crown literally caps or covers the tooth to provide durable protection. Better yet, with CEREC technology, you can have a dental crown in one visit with no messy impressions and no temporary restorations.

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Implants allow for the replacement of a single tooth, multiple teeth or can be used to stabilize dentures. The implant is a lightweight titanium “screw” that is placed in the jaw bone to act as an anchor. Dental implants are then restored with crowns, bridges or dentures to create beautiful, long-lasting replacement that look, feel and function like your natural teeth.

A root canal is needed when damage or decay has progressed to the pulp or the “center” of the tooth. The pulp provides the nutrients and nerves to the tooth and it runs in a channel within the tooth root. A root canal, or endodontic treatment, removes the diseased pulp from the tooth, and the canal system is then cleaned and sealed off prior to being protected with a dental crown.

It most cases, it can be possible to repair a damaged tooth with a crown and/or a root canal instead of extracting it. However, if extreme decay, disease, impaction or fracture is present, where we believe the tooth cannot be saved, it may be necessary to extract (or pull) the tooth.

Extraction of teeth is a surgical procedure that is irreversible. While serious medical complications are not commonly experienced, missing teeth can affect your bite and your ability to chew. We know that misaligned teeth can lead to joint damage from TMD (Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorder) and break down of other teeth, the premature loss of additional teeth from drifting and shifting leading to periodontal disease (gum disease) and increased tooth decay. We usually recommend some form of dental restoration, such as a dental implant, bridge or partial denture.
