Regain Your Full, Healthy Smile With Our Restorative Dentistry Options

Restorative dentistry saves your existing teeth and sometimes replaces them to give you back the function of your mouth.

It is always better to keep your natural teeth, but there are times when the damage to them is too extensive. In those cases, the damaged tooth threatens the health of your other teeth or your entire mouth. Restorative dentistry gives us the means to help keep your teeth safe, healthy, and working properly.

Here’s how Dr. Wilhelm can help:

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings – Tooth decay will eat away at your tooth, creating a void. Our dental fillings will fix this void and support your tooth while you use it to eat, speak, and smile. They’ll also look natural because we’ll color-match the filling material to your teeth.
  • Inlays/Onlays – These are considered partial crowns. They are for conditions that require more than a filling but less than a crown. An inlay goes over the inside of your biting surface, while an onlay extends onto the outer biting surface as well.
  • Dental Crowns – Crowns are cap-like structures that we place over damaged teeth to keep them safe, restore function, and prevent further damage. When you have a severe crack or a break in your tooth, the life of your tooth is at risk. Extensive tooth decay that can’t be fixed with a simple dental filling will threaten your tooth as well. Crowns can help in both cases!
  • Dental Bridges – Missing one or more teeth can cause issues when you are trying to eat, and they can make you hesitate to show your smile. Dr. Wilhelm can create a bridge to fill the gap and get you back to eating and smiling confidently.
  • Dental Veneers – Thin, porcelain veneers act almost like fingernails for your teeth. Both a cosmetic and restorative solution, they quickly repair cracks and chips and restore beauty. When you have a cracked tooth that does not require a crown, a veneer is often a good option. The veneer will bond to the front of the tooth and keep it safe from further cracking or breaking.
  • Dental Implants – Sometimes, a tooth comes out or needs to be extracted. To maintain good oral health, you will need to find a replacement tooth. Dental implants give you the closest replacement for your real teeth that modern dentistry can offer. By bonding with the bone in your jaw, dental implants can support new teeth and do everything that real teeth can do. You will regain the stability, look, and feel of your natural teeth with dental implants from Mark W. Wilhelm, DMD, MSD.
