Toledo Restorative Dentistry
At Dental Group West in Toledo, Ohio, we can reconstruct your damaged smile by using restorative dentistry treatments, making sure that it’s once again functional, comfortable, and beautiful, too. Whether you need a single dental filling to combat a cavity or extensive oral rehabilitation, restorative dentistry offers various levels of care to handle problems from the simple to the complex.
We perform quite a few restorative dentistry procedures right here in-house at Dental Group West, and we also work with select specialists to ensure that you get the complete care you need and the high-quality service you deserve. We can perform full-mouth reconstruction for those who are missing several teeth, having difficulty chewing properly, or experiencing facial, jaw joint, or jaw muscle pain due to oral damage. We also offer metal-free restorative dentistry options, which means that you don’t have to worry about unnatural-looking dental restorations.
Restorative dentistry from Dental Group West in Toledo, Ohio includes tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crown and bridge, natural-looking dentures and partials, and dental implant restorations. Fillings and crowns can be used when tooth enamel is damaged or decayed. A tooth-colored filling is an option when the damage is limited; if the damage of a cavity becomes more extensive and wears away more than 50% of the tooth enamel, a crown will most likely be needed instead. Crowns can be created from porcelain and used to strengthen teeth weakened by decay, injury, and infection, and they can also hold dental bridges in place for replacing teeth.
With restorative dentistry, we can address the issues that threaten to destroy your smile and your overall health. A large part of restorative dentistry is replacing teeth, and this is vital if you’ve lost even a single pearly white. One missing tooth can actually change your entire bite. Remaining teeth will slowly move, changing the position of your teeth and causing a variety of problems like gaps and misaligned bite. This can then lead to TMJ pain and dysfunction. Of course, if you’re missing several teeth or need to have all of your teeth extracted, tooth replacement is essential. At Dental Group West, we offer several options for tooth replacement: crown and bridge, dentures and partials, and dental implants.
Of course, the best way to avoid the need for extensive restorative dentistry is to visit our office regularly for dental checkups and cleanings. Make an appointment with us by contacting our Toledo, Ohio dental office today and learn more about the state of your oral health.
