We only get one set of adult teeth and sometimes they simply do not last for a lifetime. Accidents happen, decay or infection sets in, unexpected problems occur, and repairs must be made. The restorative dentistry procedures offered by Dr. Charmaine Johnson at Premier Smile Center in Fort Lauderdale are designed to correct and beautify teeth, so you have a smile that is comfortable, fully functional, and attractive.
Porcelain crowns are versatile restorative dentistry treatment. These customized “caps” are color-matched to blend in with the rest of your teeth and placed over a compromised tooth to improve its form and appearance. Crowns are used to correct damaged, decayed, and oddly shaped teeth, and protect teeth that have undergone root canal therapy.
Missing teeth are a big problem for both the look and security of your smile. Over time, holes in your smile can affect the shape of your face. Even one or two missing teeth in the back of your mouth will compromise the rest of your oral health. Dental implants replace both tooth root and crown for a complete dental restoration. This surgical procedure takes time and patience, but the results are permanent and look and feel like natural teeth.
If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, or must have all your teeth extracted, they can be replaced without dentures. All-On-4 is a complete smile solution in which four dental implants are placed within the jawbone and then fitted with a permanent denture to replace all your missing teeth at once. With the All-on-4 procedure, the need for bone grafting – a problem that plagues many people with missing teeth – is eliminated for a faster, more affordable fixed-in, full-mouth tooth replacement.
No matter what kind of dental restoration you are undergoing, the foundation for it must be solid and strong. Dental implants are often placed in a jaw that has suffered bone loss beneath a missing tooth. Augmenting the jawbone is essential to provide enough support for the implant post so the repair is solid and strong. Sinus lifts may also be done to provide vertical space for an implant site.
A missing tooth or a few missing teeth in the same area of your mouth can be replaced with a dental bridge. This restorative dentistry solution “bridges” the gap between teeth and fills in the hole left by a missing tooth. A bridge contains a prosthetic tooth and is often clasped to neighboring teeth which are then anchored with porcelain crowns for extra security.
Smile makeovers that focus on restorative dentistry upgrade your smile in both form and function, making it look and feel better than ever so you are free from pain, discomfort, and can eat and speak confidently once again. Whether your smile makeover consists of full-mouth reconstruction or a la carte solutions like a few dental implants and some porcelain crowns, a solution will be found just for you to give you a healthy, complete smile.
Teeth are meant to be white, not silver. At Premier Smile Center we use tooth-colored fillings made of composite material that is color-matched to your tooth enamel. White fillings are used to repair tooth decay but also to build up teeth that need support or reinforcement. Tooth-colored fillings are free of the toxic mercury in silver fillings, making your mouth healthier overall.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. If you have any level of gum disease, the problem needs to be professionally treated to restore your oral health and the foundation of your smile. Periodontal disease does not go away on its own or with extra brushing and flossing at home. Through laser dentistry, deep cleaning, and antibiotics, your smile can be restored to good health.
