White and Keefe and the entire Taylorsville Family Dental team change lives every day through restorative dentistry. Rejuvenate your smile today with the help of Taylorsville Family Dental!
While typical dentures shift and require the use of adhesives to keep them in place, implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures, such as gum sores and difficulty speaking and chewing. Implant-supported dentures distribute your biting pressure more like your natural teeth, stimulating the supportive structures and preventing the bone and soft tissues from shrinking away. You can replace an entire set of teeth with beautiful, natural-looking implants. Ask your Taylorsville Family Dental team if you might be a candidate for implant-supported dentures.
A natural looking smile and a perfect fit ― those are two of the primary goals that Drs. White and Keefe will achieve if you need dentures to restore your smile. A proper fitting set of dentures is very important, as a good fit ensures that your dentures will allow you to retain much of your mouth’s function. This is vitally important for maintaining natural muscle tone in your face and jaw. Dentures will keep you looking and feeling healthy and will help you retain a natural lifestyle.
Partial dentures will provide you with a natural-looking way to restore your smile to its original brilliance. They will restore the gaps in your smile due to missing teeth (those that cannot be corrected by a bridge.) Partial dentures are removable and are made from a synthetic material supported by lightweight metal that mimics your gum tissue and teeth to give you a beautiful, new smile. The partial denture will preserve your bone structure and the integrity of your existing teeth by preventing them from shifting and tilting-in towards the gaps created by your missing teeth.
Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of wear and tear during your lifetime. Teeth may show this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping, and cracking. Crowns restore your teeth and your smile to look brilliant once again. Porcelain crowns can be made out of porcelain pressed to metal or porcelain throughout and can be shaded to match your other teeth. Crowns made of precious metal are also an option. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specially fitted to restore the look and functionality of your smile. If you have pain when chewing, or if you experience temperature sensitivity, ask Dr. White or Dr. Keefe if crowns are right for you.
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and may cause mouth pain. Additionally, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces can form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by Dr. White or Dr. Keefe, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist, and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.
Sometimes a headache is not just a headache. Sometimes your headaches become debilitating and disrupt your work, family time, and sleep.
