Your dental health is very important to us at Bella Vista Dental. We do everything we can to prevent the various problems that can emerge when your teeth are not properly cleaned and maintained. Even if you take good care of your teeth, deterioration can still happen. All people in need of restorative dentistry can benefit from our services. We aim to help you protect your smile in any situation while also assuring you that you will be protected if something goes wrong. The restorative dental procedures we provide in our dental office in Seguin, Texas, are listed below.
If you have a cavity, a dental filling will repair it. Cavities are caused by plaque and bacteria building up on your teeth, which eventually produces an acid that burns microscopic holes in the enamel. These holes will need to be disinfected and repaired to restore your tooth to its original function. We use tooth-colored composite resin for all our fillings. No one will be able to tell you’ve had a dental filling because your tooth will appear perfectly natural. The filling is rigid and helps your tooth resist decay in the future. This process is quick and will lead to strong teeth.
We use a dental crown to fill cavities too large for a filling. When a tooth becomes decayed, the dentist will file it down, removing any bacteria and decay, and then construct a custom crown. The crown will act as a casing for the tooth, allowing the original tooth to heal beneath while allowing you to chew and speak normally. Crowns are often made of porcelain and function similarly to natural teeth. A crown is a minimally invasive restorative procedure.
A dental bridge is the greatest option for people who are missing many consecutive teeth in a row. A bridge is a prosthetic tooth kept by two anchors on the adjacent teeth. We design the bridge to look perfectly natural. It’s one of the less invasive tooth replacement options we provide. The technique is simple and produces long-lasting results. If you are missing multiple teeth in a row, a bridge may be the perfect option for you. See us today about bridges!
A dental implant is a restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedure. It’s a one-tooth replacement that lasts a lifetime. The operation is surgical and takes a long time to complete since your mouth must recover between each step. No one will notice you have an artificial tooth once the implant is in place. A dental implant can last a lifetime if you properly care for it.
Periodontal disease is a type of gum disease that develops when proper dental hygiene is neglected. The problem is located along the gum line; however, it can lead to bone deterioration and tooth loss if not addressed. Periodontal therapy can help you get back to having a healthy smile by correcting any abnormalities with your gums. Depending on the stage of your disease will determine the type of therapy you receive.
Even though our teeth are highly robust and long-lasting, incidents sometimes occur. You might need a root canal to save a tooth when the pulp on the inside of the tooth gets infected. The dentist will effectively clean the inside of your tooth and fill it with a dental resin to return the tooth to its natural condition. We will restore your tooth naturally, and you will be able to use it again!
At Bella Vista Dental, we want you to be comfortable throughout each procedure. If you are particularly anxious about a treatment, please ask us about the different sedation options available. We want your teeth to be strong and healthy for many years to come! Schedule an appointment today. Our restorative dentistry professionals are here to help.
