Dental Implants

If you have tooth loss or compromised teeth, one treatment is through artificial tooth replacements with dental implant restoration. Dental implants are natural-appearing prosthetic teeth that are placed into your gum line. Once your dental implant is in place, you’ll have a hard time telling the difference between the dental implant and your natural teeth. Dr. Kawulok is extensively trained and experienced in placing dental implants for over a decade, providing patients with dental implants that promise both longevity and comfort.

Dental Crown Procedures

Living with a severely cracked tooth, a tooth with excessive decay, or a damaged existing crown can be uncomfortable, painful, and unsightly. If you’re experiencing any of these issues, a new crown may be the best solution for you. A dental crown procedure encases the compromised tooth with a lifelike ceramic tooth, helping to restore your tooth’s strength and vitality. At Whole Family Dentistry, we offer modern technology, same-day crowns, with no need to wear a temporary crown and no need for a second visit.

Single-visit Crowns

Single-visit crowns are a great convenience if you need a crown, but don’t want to go home with a temporary tooth and return at a later date for placement of your new crown. Getting a single-visit crown means doing the tooth preparation, imaging, creation of the crown, and placement, all in the same visit.

Single-visit crowns can simplify the process. After an evaluation, your dentist will determine if a single-visit crown is right for you. If so, all tooth prep, imaging, new crown creation, and placement are all done in one convenient visit.

Dental Bridges

A bridge is a form of dental restoration that joins teeth together. A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth and it can be supported by natural or implants. While having a missing tooth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile, having space in your mouth can alter the function of your jaw and bite. In some cases, missing teeth have been shown to cause an increased risk of periodontal disease, which means you’re at a greater risk for tooth decay. If you’re looking to get a dental bridge – make sure it’s custom-designed to be permanent.

Beautiful Prosthesis

You have probably heard about “Same Day Implants” or Hybrid Prosthesis supported by implants. These permanent dentures that you see today are much more natural-looking and comfortable due to the advancement of the materials and the molding techniques used. We at Whole Family Dentistry recommend dentures to our patients that need artificial teeth And best of all, they stay in the mouth, and look, function, and feel like natural teeth. You may be a candidate for a Hybrid Prosthesis if you have many failing or missing teeth.

FAQs

Why Would Someone Need Restorative Dental Work?

Restorative dental work is done if a patient has missing or damaged teeth, including cracks, chips, fractures, and cavities. Restorative dental work can also be performed if a patient has sensitive teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Having Restorative Dental Work Done?

Restorative dentistry is beneficial because it can help:

  • Fill empty spaces in your mouth, helping to keep your teeth properly aligned
  • Restore your comfort during everyday activities such as brushing, chewing, and speaking
  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Improve your oral health
  • Your teeth function better

What Kinds of Problems Would Restorative Dentistry Fix?

Restorative dentistry will help to prevent small cavities from growing into large cavities, or to the point of losing a tooth entirely due to an infection. Cracked and weak teeth can be saved from breaking completely through restorative dentistry procedures such as fillings and crowns.

Do You Need to See a Specialist for Restorative Dentistry?

Specialists are rarely needed to perform restorative dentistry work,and Whole Family Dentistry is highly trained, experienced and competent in comprehensive care and restoration.

What Procedures Do You Offer That Are Classified as Restorative Dentistry?

We at Whole Family Dentistry offer the following services for restorative dentistry:

  • Fillings
  • Inlays
  • Onlays
  • Same day dental crown procedure
  • Bridges
  • Implant restorations

How is Restorative Dentistry Different from Cosmetic Dentistry?

While there are some similarities between cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is performed when you want to improve the look of your smile and generally have healthy teeth. Restorative dentistry is for those that need to regain strength, function, and/or extend the life of their teeth. Candidates for restorative dentistry may need their teeth repaired or replaced entirely. When you make an appointment with Whole Family Dentistry for restorative dentistry, we work to also cosmetically improve your teeth so you have a radiant smile and healthy teeth.

How Expensive is Restorative Dental Work?

The cost of restorative dental work varies depending on the procedures and treatment you will need. At Whole Family Dentistry we feel the value is always greater than the cost. We will assist you with your dental insurance to help you maximize your benefits.

Why is mercury used in fillings?

Mercury is an inexpensive option to fill teeth. Mercury has unique binding properties that allow it to be an effective way to fill teeth. However, mercury is extremely toxic. Though it is usually safe, there is a possibility that it can leak out of the filling and into the body, potentially causing adverse health reactions. This is why we do NOT use mercury fillings and have found safer and better alternatives.

What are safer alternatives to mercury fillings?

At Whole Family Dentistry, we provide the safest options for you and your family. We do not want to run the risk of any of our patients’ health for the quick savings of amalgam - or mercury - fillings.

Instead, we use Natural Composite Dental Fillings. Composite Fillings are made from a resin-material that is the same color as your tooth - unlike the mercury fillings. In addition to being safer, Composite Fillings also look a lot better than amalgam fillings. A Composite Filling is especially great for chips on those front, visible teeth; the filling blends right in, unlike mercury-based fillings.
