Repair & Protect Your Smile
Restorative Dentistry in Simpsonville
If you have a damaged, loose, or knocked-out tooth, this can affect your oral and overall health as well as your emotional well-being. Decayed, damaged teeth are susceptible to further complications. If you lose a tooth, this can also cause other problems such as jaw bone resorption and teeth shifting. Dr. Cash is here to help restore your smile and your confidence if you run into any dental health issues.
Tooth decay is the single most common oral health issue that affects patients of every age. Without proper care, a decayed tooth can continue to progress and will eventually become infected, which will require more extensive restorative treatment. If you have a cavity, we offer durable, natural-looking composite fillings to restore your smile back to optimal health.
These fillings offer a more seamless appearance than metal amalgam fillings, which are gray in color. They also do not contain any mercury, and they bond tightly to your tooth to help strengthen and restore its structure. For more information about composite fillings, contact us for an appointment with Dr. Cash.
Cover Damaged Teeth
Lab-Made Dental Crowns
If your tooth has a large cavity that cannot be treated with a filling, or if your tooth is otherwise damaged, dental crowns can cover up and protect your tooth structure. Crowns are built to completely cover a weakened tooth, all the way down to your gum line. Our office in Simpsonville works with the best dental labs in the country to create durable, strong porcelain crowns. Our restorations are completely indistinguishable from natural teeth, and will give you the ability to smile, speak and chew again with carefree ease.
Get the Perfect Fit
Losing your teeth does not have to affect the way you live your day-to-day life. At Pearl Dental Studio, we help patients with comfortable, natural-looking dentures in Simpsonville. If you’re missing one or multiple teeth, Dr. Cash will work with you to design a set of partial dentures that will integrate perfectly with your smile. With partial dentures, you can restore your bite and your smile, and avoid side effects of tooth loss such as teeth shifting towards your empty socket.
If you’re missing most or all of your upper, lower or both arches of your teeth, Dr. Cash can also design a full set of dentures that will fit comfortably over your gums to restore all of your missing teeth. We work closely with you over multiple appointments to refine the shape of your dentures and ensure that you are completely confident with your new smile. Make an appointment to visit our office located at 117 Batesville Road Suite 202, Simpsonville, SC 29681.
Restorative dentistry helps restore the function, appearance, and comfort of your teeth and oral health. At our Simpsonville office we can repair cracked and damaged teeth, restore unevenly sized or shaped teeth, and improve discoloration. Improving the appearance of the teeth can improve your overall smile, make you look younger, and boost your confidence.
Aside from cosmetic appearances, teeth are vital tools we need to chew and speak. If you’re missing a tooth, we offer tooth replacement options such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures. By replacing missing teeth, you can prevent bone loss, shifting teeth, and changes in the facial structure. Dental bonding is a procedure that can be used to recontour and reshape the teeth.
Did you know that misaligned or shifting teeth can cause a lot of jaw pain and discomfort? Whether you need orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign, tooth replacement, or TMJ/TMD therapy, we can help reduce jaw discomfort with restorative dentistry.
Fillings are one of the most common restorative procedures, used very commonly to fill cavities and stop tooth decay in its tracks. This prevents decay from progressing into a stage that will cause significant pain and damage to the teeth, at which point more complex and expensive procedures could be needed. Restorative dentistry is also preventative.
What Should I Ask my Dentist
Before I Receive Restorative Treatment?
There are many important questions that you should ask your dentist before agreeing to the treatment. Some of these concern pricing and insurance benefits while others focus on the potential benefits and risks of the procedure.
The following is a list of useful questions you can ask your dentist to get a better idea of what to expect, how to prepare, and prevent further damage:
- What happens if I don’t go through with this treatment?
- How experienced are you with this procedure?
- How much does this cost and is it covered by insurance?
- What are the benefits of this treatment?
- Are there any potential risks of this treatment?
- What do I need to do to prepare for this treatment?
- Is there specific aftercare I need to follow?
- What type of fillings will I be receiving?
- Are there any alternatives to this treatment?
The most important questions to ask straight away are the most serious, such as potential risks or rate of failure of certain procedures, such as for dental implants. You will need to fundamentally understand the preparation and aftercare for more complex dental procedures to increase your chances of success.
Is Restorative Dentistry
Right For Me?
Do you have damaged, decayed, diseased, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth? If you answered yes to any of these, then restorative dentistry is exactly what you need. We can protect vulnerable and weak teeth with dental crowns if they are significantly cracked, missing a lot of the structure of the tooth, or have received a root canal.
We will also work with you to restore the function of your teeth so you can get back to comfortably chewing and speaking without pain, swelling, or discomfort. In restorative dentistry, we can treat gum disease, fill cavities, replace missing teeth, and repair or protect damaged and weakened teeth.
While we prepare the function and structure of your teeth, we also work to restore their appearance. Many of our procedures involve taking impressions of the teeth so we can match tooth restorations as closely as possible to the natural appearance of the teeth.
