Restorative dental services are centered on restoring the overall look and functionality of your teeth. If you remember once being able to smile with confidence, but now you’re ashamed to even grin at your friends and family, restorative dental treatment might be right for you. Raleigh dentist Dr. Robert Orander can perform a thorough examination to effectively determine which restorative treatments will best address your unique needs. Restorative services we offer include:
Dental crowns– If a tooth is severely weakened due to decay or trauma, we may recommend a dental crown to protect it from further damage. Crowns can be made of various materials such as porcelain or zirconia that can be closely matched to your natural tooth color for aesthetic appeal.
Removable and fixed bridges– This treatment is used to fill in the space created by missing teeth to prevent the surrounding teeth from moving or shifting. We routinely offer recommendations on which bridge will best meet your needs.
Removable and fixed dentures– Another alternative to addressing missing teeth, conventional dentures are removable and successfully fill in large spaces of missing teeth. Fixed dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures, are locked into place by implants for a more comfortable, secure fit. For this procedure, we will refer you to an oral surgeon for implant placement. Then we will provide custom-made dentures for a perfect fit.
Partial dentures– Removable partial dentures are a good restorative option when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. The replacement teeth are attached to a plastic base that resembles your natural gum, and it is connected by a metal framework that secures the denture in place in your mouth.
Dental implant restoration– Dental implants are a wonderful way to replace missing teeth. Talk to us about helping you restore your smile with dental implants.
