Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that simply fit over the top of a damaged tooth to protect it and bring back its original structure and appearance. They can be made of a variety of strong and natural-looking materials, and by attaching one to other prosthetic teeth, they can even help replace a missing tooth by forming a bridge. We only use the most advanced techniques and trusted dental labs to make our restorations, so no matter which one you need, you can trust that it will blend seamlessly into your smile.
With dentures from Lakeshore Dental, we can quickly make your missing teeth a problem of the past. Partial dentures are designed to fit among any remaining healthy teeth and fill in the gaps like the missing piece of a puzzle, while full dentures can instantly restore an entire row. Do you currently have a denture that doesn’t fit well? We can help upgrade it so it looks great and feels comfortable.
With a tooth-colored filling, we can fully repair a small cavity without affecting its appearance like a traditional amalgam filling. These are made of a material called composite resin, and they can be specially colored to perfectly match a patient’s enamel, making them practically invisible within the mouth. Plus, these fillings also require less healthy tooth enamel to be removed while being placed compared to regular fillings, helping to preserve more of a tooth’s natural structure and strength over time.
At the center of every tooth lies the delicate nerve, also known as the dental pulp. Whether due to a cavity or dental trauma, this pulp can sometimes become damaged or infected, causing quite a lot of dental pain. To provide relief for this kind of problem, our doctors can perform a root canal, in which the pulp is removed and the tooth is cleaned and restored. Thanks to modern-day dental techniques, this often feared procedure is virtually painless and nothing to fear.
While our primary goal is to help a patient maintain all of their natural teeth, sometimes, an extraction is the best thing we can do for their oral and overall health. A patient may need to have a tooth removed if:
In any case, should you ever need an extraction, our team will take every step to ensure your comfort from the beginning to end.
The “wisdom teeth” are actually the third set of molars that typically start to come in around the ages of 16-21, and they usually need to be extracted because most people simply don’t have enough room in their mouth to accommodate these teeth. Because of this, as they erupt, they can cause jaw pain, teeth crowding, and even develop an infection. We’re able to perform safe and effective wisdom teeth extractions in-house, so should you or your child have any problems with them, we can save you from having to get an expensive and inconvenient referral.
