What if I Do Nothing?
While a single cavity or chipped tooth might seem like a minor problem, it won’t stay that way forever. Your teeth can’t actually heal themselves, meaning decay only gets worse, and weakened enamel will eventually break altogether. This can lead to more pain and the need for more extensive care, so for both your smile and your wallet’s sake, it’s best to address any issues right away.
Also known as “caps,” dental crowns are fitted over distressed teeth to restore their strength, function, and appearance all at the same time. They are specially-designed for each patient to perfectly blend into their smile, and they’re often made of natural-looking materials like porcelain. We frequently use them to repair large cavities, mend broken teeth, and even improve the appearance of misshapen/undersized teeth.
With a tooth-colored filling, we can make a minor cavity practically disappear. Instead of using dark gray amalgam to fix a tooth, we instead apply a plastic-based composite resin that is shaded to match a patient’s enamel. This means the restoration ends up looking just like regular dental structure, so a patient doesn’t have to worry about friends or coworkers noticing their dental work. And, because they are metal-free, they don’t cause dental sensitivity like old fillings as well!
One Visit Restorations
At most other dental offices, if a patient needs a crown to fix one of their teeth, they have to attend at least two appointments spaced about a week apart so the restoration can be made in a lab. Who has time for that these days?! Thanks to our in-house technology, Lykins Family Dentistry can design, mill, and place our own custom-made crowns in a single appointment, often in as little as an hour.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Has it been a very long time since you’ve been to the dentist? Has a traumatic accident or years of teeth grinding left you with several broken, decayed, or missing teeth? Whatever your situation might be, a full mouth reconstruction can be used to address multiple problems simultaneously and give your smile a new life. Our team will come up with a personalized treatment plan that combines different procedures to bring health, strength, and beauty back to your teeth at the same time.
