Restorative Dentistry

Crown.bridgesAt Little Big Smiles we believe in minimally invasive treatments. This means that we preserve as much the tooth structure as we can while providing you with long lasting restorations. For small cavities, they are easily restored by utilizing high strength dental bonding material which will complement our highly aesthetic and durable composite tooth colored filling materials. Even though our composite filling material has good aesthetic qualities, there is still a chance for the edges of the fillings to stain over time. Therefore, for more aesthetic areas such as your front teeth we offer dental porcelain veneers. As for larger cavity affected teeth we offer dental crowns to make sure we provide good coverage of affected area while preserving the remaining tooth structure to prevent further fractures or decay. If there are missing tooth area, we many options to offer for restoring them. Dental bridges are very good option for replacing the missing area by using teeth next to the missing area. For larger missing teeth area there is the option of removable partial dentures that anchors on your existing teeth or full dentures where there is no more teeth remaining. However, please keep in mind that the dentures by itself is a removable appliance, but they can be made more stable and fixed with dental implants. With recent advances in dental implantology, titanium dental implants are becoming a go-to option for replacing missing tooth areas. Dental implants can act as single root replacement for crowns or act as anchor/abutment roots for dental bridges and even dentures. If you have questions regarding these treatment options, please feel free to contact us.
