It’s very common for a person to experience a chipped, cracked, decayed, or missing tooth at some point in their life. These things happen! Fortunately, they don’t have to impact your smile for long thanks to our restorative treatments. We can make you a strong, natural-looking dental restoration using the highest quality materials so that your smile looks like nothing ever happened to it. Our restorative solutions are always custom-made, and in the end, only you and your dentist will know that you’ve had any dental work done. To learn about all the ways we can help rebuild your smile, read on below or contact us today for an appointment.
At Pearl Care Dental, we try to use only the most conservative treatments we can when repairing your smile. With porcelain crowns, we’ll be able to restore your tooth’s structure and appearance at the same time while preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. These durable materials even resemble natural enamel, so in the end, you’ll get a tooth that looks great, feels better, and is built to stand the test of time.
Do you have one or more missing teeth in a row? When it is not possible to use implants to restore lost teeth, we can still reduce your chances for shifting teeth and bite problems with this type of permanently fixed restoration. Often, we can use all-porcelain bridges with a backbone of zirconium to make your replacement so lifelike it will be hard to tell which tooth has been replaced.
Dental implants are the most functional, natural-looking, and lasting way to replace missing teeth. An implant acts as an artificial root that is placed into the jaw, the bone fuses to the artificial implant, and after 4-6 months of healing time, the final restoration is placed. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, to bridge between several missing teeth, or used to anchor removable prosthetics, including dentures.
If you are interested in seeing if you are a candidate for dental implants, give our office a call to schedule a consult with Dr. Bender.
In a perfect world, we would be able to help you preserve all of your natural teeth forever, but sometimes, the best course of action may involve removing one. This is often the case if:
We’ll handle your extraction with a gentle touch, and if you feel anxious about it, we can also provide you IV sedation therapy.
Our practice works with Anesthetists of Washington in order to provide comprehensive sedation dentistry. With IV sedation, we can minimize any stress or discomfort a patient might feel in the dental chair using a powerful sedative administered via a painless injection. If you’re the kind of person who is terrified of going to the dentist, or if you’d like to have multiple procedures completed in one appointment to save time, IV sedation can help you finally get the healthy smile you deserve.
