Get Your Smile Back
Legacy Dental offers many restorative treatments for damaged or missing teeth. We work with our patients and their unique needs to restore function, improve appearance, prevent future problems, and keep their oral health in good shape. Some restorative dental treatments include the following.
Are you concerned that you may have a cavity? Fillings can be an economical and quick way to fix decay. Legacy Dental offers high-quality, durable fillings in Burleson, TX. They are strong, high-quality, and resistant to fracture and wear.
If you are suffering from:
- Decayed teeth
- Broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Gaps between your teeth
What are fillings made of?
Durable silver amalgam is the most common material used for traditional dental fillings. This material is used to protect the teeth from damage caused by chewing. Modern dental fillings are made from ceramic and plastic compounds, which mimic natural teeth. These materials are most commonly used for front teeth, where a natural appearance of the teeth is more important. However, depending on the severity of the decay, they can also be used for back teeth.
Dental fillings can be done in one visit and are routine procedures. To ensure that you don’t feel any pain, Dr. Barroso or Dr. Magers will first numb your tooth and surrounding areas. Then, decay can be removed. Next, the cavity is cleaned and prepared for the new filling. After the filling is placed correctly, Dr. Barroso or Dr. Magers will shape or polish the area affected to restore its original function.
A dental crown is a protective coating that covers the exposed tooth and reinforces the damaged structure beneath. For cases that involve severe tooth damage, trauma, or decay, our Burleson dental office offers quality porcelain, IMS E.max, and noble-metal crowns. Crowns can be used when a filling is not appropriate due to structural or integrity concerns. We highly recommend the IMS E.max crowns as they utilize the latest technology, are high-quality, and are strong. We will help you pick the best type of crown for your unique oral situation.
How do I know if I need a crown?
You may need a crown if your tooth is:
- Aggressively won
- A root canal was performed
- Very decayed
One common misconception regarding crown maintenance is that flossing can pull them off. This is false. To prevent bacteria and plaque from building up around your crown, floss around it. Your crown’s life expectancy can be extended by daily flossing, brushing, routine cleanings, and exams at Legacy Dental.
Do you have missing teeth? Partial dentures, as well as complete dentures, can be a cost-effective and reliable solution to tooth loss. Legacy Dental is committed to providing customized dentures that meet your needs.
Modern technology allows dentures to look and function like natural teeth. They can also be made to improve speech quality, chewing ability, facial muscle tone, self-esteem, and chewing ability. Our Burleson dentist will meet with you to discuss your options and help you get your smile back.
Some denture options are:
A partial denture is the best option if you have missing teeth in several places. The wireframe that supports your dentures and keeps them in place is held in place by a plastic base. It can be colored to match your gums.
A complete denture procedure is an option for those who have suffered trauma or are suffering from a medical condition that has resulted in the loss of all their teeth. Complete dentures remove any damaged teeth and prep the gums for cleaning. The new dentures will be fitted after the healing process.
Our Burleson dentist office can help you determine the best option for you, whether you have missing teeth in one or more locations.
A dental bridge is another option for replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges can be used to replace missing teeth and maintain your facial shape. They also relieve stress from your bite. Our teeth work together so if one tooth is lost, the rest of the teeth will gradually fill in the gap. This can lead to multiple problems with chewing and one’s bite.
Dental bridges bridge the gap between two or more teeth. Bridges can be made of porcelain, gold, alloys, or any combination thereof and bonded to the surrounding teeth.
Any type of bridge’s success depends on its foundation. A dental bridge is only possible if there are healthy teeth on both sides of the missing teeth. Dr. Barroso or Dr. Magers will address your concerns and help you choose the best treatment plan.
Dental implants are the gold standard in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. They offer the best strength and durability, with natural-looking aesthetics. Implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss. They consist of an artificial root (typically made from titanium) that is surgically placed in the jaw. It then fuses with the bone in what is called osseointegration.
Implants are known for their incredible durability. To replace a tooth, a crown is placed on top of the implant. This procedure is considered invasive. It takes six months to recover before the crown can be attached and the procedure is complete.
