St. Louis Cosmetic Dentist and Dental Restorations at Carondelet Park Dental Care
Dental restorations have incredible applications for one’s oral health: they can replace missing teeth, and they can restore damaged ones to a healthy condition. These prostheses rebuild the healthy function of your smile and can also improve the look as well. At Carondelet Park Dental Care, Drs. Marc and Greg Boivin offer restorations for the whole family. The doctors and our dental team of our St. Louis dental practice study each patient’s case and come up with a personalized plan to provide you with the best care possible.
Is Restorative Dentistry Right for You?
The foremost reason for receiving a dental restoration is to restore the health of your smile. If teeth have been lost or damaged, your ability to chew food is affected; the resulting poor diet can have serious general health consequences for your body. Missing or damaged teeth can also overburden any remaining teeth, increasing the risk of damaging those teeth and furthering these complications. Restorations can replace missing teeth and reconstruct damaged ones in order to prevent these dental health complications.
By choosing to receive a dental restoration from our St. Louis dentists, you are also choosing to improve the beauty of your smile. Tooth loss can lead to gaps in the smile and degradation of the jaw bone, giving you the appearance of premature aging. Damaged teeth also have their own unsightly impacts on your smile’s aesthetics, such as tooth discoloration. Dental restorations fill unseemly gaps, improve the appearance of damaged teeth, and reinforce the jaw, so you can smile and laugh with confidence.
Many Restoration Options
Our St. Louis dentists work to ensure each patient receives the restorative dental care they need. We have a wide range of restoration, such as traditional full and partial dentures, but some of our more popular restorations include:
Dental Implants Restorations: If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be the solution. Implants are directly installed and fuse into the jaw, creating a strong foundation for restorative prostheses like dentures and bridges. Implant-supported prostheses also leave the health of neighboring teeth alone, unlike some traditional restorations.
Crowns: Dental crowns protect damaged teeth from the stresses of everyday chewing and further decay. Crowns, when supported by a dental implant, can also replace one missing tooth. They are also the final step of a root canal procedure, helping protect the health of the restored tooth.
Inlays & Onlays: Also known as partial crowns, these restorations are used when a dental crown is too invasive a restoration to use, but a basic dental filling will not be enough. Dental inlays and onlays save a moderately damaged, but mostly healthy, tooth from being extracted or needlessly modified for a crown.
