When teeth become damaged or lost, it will impair the function of your mouth. It’s not great for your self-image, either. To improve both the use and look of your grin, talk to the staff at Hill Avenue Dental about our available restorative dentistry treatments. Drs. Doug and Doug Clark are experienced in providing viable dentistry solutions for their patients, and our staff is ready to welcome you to our Superior, WI practice.
When you’re missing a pearly white, not only is your confidence affected, your gum line will begin to shift and change for the worse. When a tooth is lost or extracted, nerves in the now-empty socket send a message to your jaw bone that it’s no longer needed. As the bone begins to deteriorate, your gums can recede or depreciate as well. The teeth on either edge of the space will begin to shift in order to fill the space, and it changes your entire bite. Dental implant restorations can fill in the gap to provide the support that your gum line and self-assurance need!
When you’re missing one to three teeth in a row, you’ll need to fill in the area with a dependable dental prosthetic. The staff at Hill Avenue Dental has dental bridge therapy as a restorative dentistry option. A dental bridge is created uniquely for you, and we’ll try to match the size and shape of your other teeth. This way, your grin will appear natural while still providing support.
Once damage occurs to your teeth, you’ll most likely need to finish your restorative treatment by getting a dental crown. This can be a lengthy process if you have to wait for a ceramist to create the dental fixture, and that time can leave your tooth susceptible to more damage. Hill Avenue Dental has CEREC one-visit crown technology to reduce the time you have to spend in our office! CEREC, or Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics, is a milling machine which creates crowns that protect your tooth from further damage.

If the answer is yes, the discomfort could be an indicator of a tooth infection. We can treat the source of your problem at our practice. Dr. Clark will examine you, and if he finds it necessary, he can perform expert root canal therapy. When bacteria have slipped beneath the enamel of your tooth, it will begin to decay from the inside out. Your body can’t fight the infection in a tooth like it can for infections that take place elsewhere, so a root canal procedure is your only option if you want to keep your tooth. The restorative dentistry process involves going into the injured tooth to remove the contaminants and then filling the space with a natural-colored filling. Once that’s done, our staff can use CEREC one-visit crown technology to create a dental crown to cap over the damaged area. Root canal therapy from Hill Avenue Dental will protect your tooth and guard your gum health.
