Quality Restorative Dentistry for Springfield, MO
All smiles are vulnerable to decay, infection and unexpected injury. If something affects the health of one or more of your teeth, don’t wait to seek a solution. Dental problems don’t get better with time -- instead, they require fast, excellent services in restorative dentistry. Olson Family Dental offers a range of services in this area of dental care to help you enjoy renewed smile health once again.
When you’ve got a problem with your tooth, the restoration that’s right for you will depend on the location and extent of the damage. Dr. Olson will evaluate your teeth, the affected tooth and determine the best route of action for relieving your discomfort and strengthening your tooth back to its original state. Some of the most common treatments we provide for renewing the health of damaged teeth include the following.
When minor decay gets the best of one of your teeth, you’ll need a filling to restore it to its original health. Tooth-colored fillings renew your dental health without marring the appearance of your smile. The method uses a white composite resin to fill in the hole left by the cavity, and the substance is just as strong as alternative filling options. It also requires the removal of less natural tooth structure -- and that’s always a good thing.
Amalgam (Silver) Fillings
At Olson family dental we provide composite/resin fillings. We are happy to replace your old amalgam fillings with composite resins. Composite/resin material will less likely lead to sensitivity issues and the material doesn't expand or contract as much as silver so the tooth is under less stress and less likely to fracture.
For broken, severely decayed or otherwise damaged teeth, dental crowns are a wonderful solution to restore both form and function. When supported by a dental implant, a dental crown can also replace a single missing tooth. They’re thin, tooth-shaped coverings that fit right over the damaged tooth to strengthen it, hold its pieces together and protect it from further damage or decay. For tooth replacement, the dental crown is the prosthetic attached to the implant abutment. Completed in two visits to Olson Family Dental, dental crowns are a long-trusted solution to a number of dental issues.
When you’ve lost one or several teeth, a dental bridge may be the best option for completing your smile once again. This device uses two dental crowns as anchors over the surrounding teeth, and a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) that fills in the space in between. In this way, it creates an actual bridge over the gap left by missing teeth -- renewing your ability to eat, speak and smile with complete confidence.
