We provide comprehensive restorative dentistry for our patients suffering from common oral health issues. We like to take a cosmetic approach to these procedures to make sure that your dental restorations also look and feel natural in addition to returning the full functionality to your teeth.
Our experienced dentist, Dr. Hutto provides a wide variety of dental services such as; fillings, crowns, bridges, veneers, root canals and dentures. All of which can make your smile healthier, straighter, and brighter.
Tooth decay is a very common ailment affecting all of us at some time, and when it happens, it can cause discoloration and blemishes that affect how you look and feel. Much more important than this though, these cavities can cause significant damage to your tooth structure and if not fixed on time, can lead to irreversible damage.
Sometimes, when a tooth’s cavity is too large, or the tooth has a fracture of significant size, a filling won’t do and dental crowns are needed. Crowns are custom-designed caps made to resemble a specific tooth. Our porcelain crowns are crafted by hand at a trusted dental lab and are made to very closely imitate your tooth’s colour, shade and light-reflecting abilities.
The risk of losing functionality in your bite, potentially developing speech problems and an increased risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease are something you should avoid at the earliest opportunity. We use porcelain bridges to restore all of these functions and help you gain a confident, whole, healthy smile.
At the same time as increasing the strength and resilience of your natural tooth enamel, porcelain veneers can completely recreate the look of a beautiful, white, natural smile. Wafer thin shells of porcelain are used to cover the front surfaces of your teeth, alleviating several potential cosmetic concerns.
Tooth decay leading to major cavities will not always be treatable by a tooth filling. When the soft tissue inside your tooth, which contains blood vessels, nerves and connecting tissue (known together as ‘pulp’), becomes diseased or infected, then a root canal may be a necessary procedure to avoid the affected tooth needing to be removed altogether.
Even those practicing exceptional oral hygiene and visiting a dentist regularly can still experience tooth loss. The functionality of your bite, as well as the confidence a great smile brings, remain important no matter at any age. In some instances full or partial dentures are the best option available to replace missing teeth.
