Restorative Dentistry Services
Routine Dental Cleaning
Routine dental cleanings are essential for maintaining your oral health. At 3 Rivers Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry, we encourage all patients to schedule a routine dental cleaning every six months. During your routine visit, we perform X-rays on your mouth to identify any problems that may be below the surface. Our skilled hygienists will remove any tartar or plaque buildup on the surface of your teeth to leave you with a fresh, polished smile. We ensure you leave our office feeling fresh and satisfied.
If you are experiencing swollen or bleeding gums, harsh breath, or loose teeth, you may have periodontal disease. Oftentimes, this disease can be overlooked and undetected. In its early stages, it can be recognized as gingivitis. Our office is equipped with the skills and expertise to administer treatment according to the severity of the disease. Treatment may involve numbing, deep scaling, and root-planing, although if the case is severe, we will connect you with a periodontist.
If your tooth is severely decayed or damaged, a crown may be necessary if bonded filling material cannot salvage the tooth. A crown offers long-term protection by covering the tooth’s remains and restoring its strength, esthetics, and function. At 3 Rivers Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry, we offer different crown material types for your preference, depending on the area that requires restoration.
When you are experiencing several missing or damaged teeth from decay or injury, a bridge is the best solution. A bridge is a permanent solution that can terminate future problems caused by a gap or multiple damaged teeth. At 3 Rivers Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry, we can close the gap with a bridge to avoid movement and pain in surrounding teeth and maintain the position of your smile.
Root Canal Therapy
The root of your tooth may become infected if a cavity has reached the pulp of a tooth. The infection can oftentimes go unnoticed, but if you are experiencing swelling, extreme sensitivity, or even an unfamiliar taste in the mouth, check with your dentist immediately and get treated right away. Our dentists will clean out the infected area and fill the canal with material to begin the healing process. A core build-up, crown, or bonded post may be necessary to restore the tooth to its normal function.
At 3 Rivers Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry, we offer tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings. As an alternative to silver fillings, the tooth-colored filling is made to be a natural-looking tooth replacement, resulting in a smile you can be proud to show off. We have the expertise to discuss restorative options with you and determine what solution is best for your unique situation.
If you are missing a tooth or an array of teeth, dental implants may be the most efficient option. During a dental implant procedure, our team penetrates your tooth at its root to replace the entire composition. Your bone will naturally fuse to the implant with the titanium root, resulting in a natural feel and appearance. Implants are a natural and permanent solution to improve the health and function of your mouth greatly.
Another option for missing teeth can be complete or partial dentures. We offer custom-fitted, removable dentures to replace your missing teeth and restore your mouth’s function and health. Dentures also prevent facial sagging, restore your eating and speech abilities, and give your smile a natural appearance again. We can have your dentures made and your smile confidence renewed in just a few short visits.
