Summer is full of fun, exciting moments. When you think on past years, many memories can be drawn from the warmest months of the year. Think about it, you can enjoy juicy watermelon during a shady picnic and have long lasting memories posted all over social media with your friends and family. Both of these popular summer activities require a healthy beautiful smile. If you’re suffering from tooth loss, but want to fix your smile before summer, your restorative dentist in North Dallas is here to help you. The office of Ellis L. Ramsey, DDS offers many options to replace the missing pieces of your smile.
Dental crowns are used to restore a damaged or weak tooth. Sometimes your teeth become broken or decayed, but the tooth root is still in perfectly good condition—that’s a great thing! Your restorative dentist in Lake Highlands can use a dental crown to preserve it. In this case, Dr. Ramsey will recommend a dental crown. This restoration will offer a covering for the total decayed or broken tooth which is above to gum line to provide strength to broken teeth. You can have your dental crowns in just a few short appointments after taking your custom impressions.
Many patients get tooth-colored dental fillings. These are one of the most common dental restorations. Chipped or ruined teeth could be filled using our tooth-colored dental materials (composite resin) rather than metallic materials to provide effective aesthetic and restorative results.
Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. The tooth is replaced from top to bottom meaning from beneath the gum line to the visible portion of or the crown. It provides a permanent solution for missing teeth with three critical parts: the biocompatible titanium implant post, the abutment, and the dental prosthetic of your choice. Dental implants will be mounted on jawbone within gums for offering support to the enamel bridges and dentures.
These are perfect for filling gaps in your smile from multiple teeth. Just like its name, dental bridges bridge the gap of missing teeth. Patients must take proper care of their dental bridges to extend their lifetime and also to maintain good dental health. So, it’s important to take care of your teeth outside our dental office by brushing and flossing regularly.
