Eating & Smiling Easily
Enjoying your life can be difficult when your teeth aren’t healthy. You may be embarrassed about your appearance and avoid smiling because you feel self-conscious. Eating and chewing may be difficult and uncomfortable if a tooth is missing or damaged.
Avoiding these problems won’t make them go away. You know that teeth don’t get healthier on their own, and putting off treatment will only result in more costly and complicated dental care in the future.
The team at George Family Dentistry is here to support you in your efforts to keep your teeth healthy and free of disease. Whatever dental problem you’re currently experiencing, we can help!
Help for Damaged Teeth
Teeth can become damaged or decayed for any number of reasons. However, the most important thing to remember is to call us as soon as possible. The sooner we can treat the problem, the sooner you can get back to fully enjoying your life!
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are referred to as dental restorations because they “restore” the appearance and function of a tooth or teeth. They’re both used frequently in dentistry because they’re so versatile and effective.
A crown is used to protect a tooth that’s too damaged to be fixed with a simple filling. It completely surrounds the tooth to protect it and make it stronger. Bridges are used to fill the space left by a missing tooth.
While we do have other methods for replacing a missing tooth, dental implants provide the best long-term result. This is because they are the only tooth replacement available that actually creates a new root for the missing tooth. After the implant has been placed and allowed time to heal, Dr. George will attach a restoration like a crown, bridge, or denture to the root. The result is a tooth that looks natural and is just as strong as a healthy natural tooth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are another tooth replacement option and have been used with great success for many decades. A well-made set of dentures looks natural and allows you to eat comfortably and smile again with confidence. Dr. George takes the time to craft dentures that look as close to natural teeth as possible. No one will ever have to know that those beautiful teeth aren’t all your own.
If you already wear dentures, you may have found that they no longer fit properly. This is natural since the shape of your jaw changes over time, which can definitely affect the fit and comfort of your dentures. At George Family Dentistry, we can update your dentures so that they once again fit comfortably with no more embarrassing slips at the most awkward moments!
