Restorative Dentistry Near West Seneca, Hamburg, & Buffalo
Are your teeth in less-than-perfect condition? It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. There are plenty of reasons why teeth can become damaged over time, from cavities to dental trauma. If you ever find yourself experiencing tooth pain or missing teeth, let the team at McKinley Crossing Dental help. With restorative dentistry, we can make sure your smile is back to looking and feeling great.
Have Tooth Pain?
Tooth pain is no laughing matter. When you have a toothache, it can be a sign of a serious dental problem so it’s important to get professional help to pinpoint what exactly is wrong and address the issue. If your pain is caused by an infection in your tooth, you may need a root canal to give you relief and save your tooth.
So many people think root canals are painful, but that’s not the case. It’s actually quite similar to getting a routine dental filling. In fact, getting a root canal could mean the difference between saving your tooth or losing it because the damage is so severe. In a root canal procedure, we’ll clean out any infected tissue inside the tooth and then restore it with a dental crown or filling.
Have a Cracked, Misshaped, or Discolored Tooth?
Whether you just experienced a dental injury that left your tooth cracked or broken, your tooth has been severely worn down, or your tooth is too discolored for whitening, a dental crown could be just the answer.
Dental crowns are also known as “caps” because we use them to literally cap damaged teeth. They not only strengthen a tooth but they can improve its appearance (including size, shape, and color) as well. We design dental crowns to have a very natural look.
Need Tooth Replacement Options?
A nice smile plays an important role in self-confidence, so know how upsetting it can be to lose one or more teeth. The good news is there are a variety of tooth replacement options out there for you. You don’t have to settle for a smile with spaces! Schedule a consultation at McKinley Crossing Dental to decide which might be right for you.
Dentures are a widely popular method for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they make it easier to chew and speak, but they also help preserve the shape and appearance of your face, which can sag when there are teeth missing. Dentures are a good option for patients missing multiple teeth in a row, or even all the teeth in a row, on either the top or bottom arch.
Dental implants are often praised as the next best thing to natural teeth. That’s because they’re more permanently placed, rather than being a removable appliance. To learn more about how they work and what their benefits are, visit our dental implants page.
Dental bridges are another common choice for filling in the gap left by one or multiple missing teeth in a row. A bridge is basically a row of false teeth that is anchored to the teeth on either side of the space.
