Restorative Dentistry Overland Park
At KC Smile in Overland Park, KS, our dentists want patients to have the healthiest smiles possible which is why we offer a complete range of dental procedures to suit their needs. In addition to general and cosmetic dentistry, we specialize in restorative dentistry procedures. Restorative dentistry mends the health and function back to your teeth. Whether you have a cavity, a broken tooth, or missing teeth, our solutions will restore your smile. Our restorative dentists at our dental office in Overland Park can evaluate your smile and find the right solution for you.
When you lose a tooth, you will need to find a restorative option to restore your smile back to full health. When a tooth is not replaced, oral health can decline. This can result in the nearby teeth crowding into the empty gap, and periodontal disease due to the exposed gum line. A dental bridge is both an affordable and ideal solution for missing teeth. The bridge is composed of two dental crowns used to support the bridge in the middle. The two dental crowns will be placed over the teeth next to the missing tooth, or over dental implants. The bridge will be fixed in place so patients never need to worry about their restoration slipping or falling off. The dental bridge will allow you to speak and chew like normal.
Dental implants are the best option when it comes to restoring missing teeth. The best candidates for this restorative dentistry option are patients who have a missing tooth, or multiple missing teeth, patients free of periodontal disease, and patients who have an adequate amount of bone mass in their jaw. To suit our patient’s individual needs, we offer single implants, multiple implants, implant supported dentures and implant bridges. The dental implants are secured with titanium screws placed in the jaw. The implant acts like a root of the tooth, which is great for dental health. The implant promotes bone growth in the jaw which normally decreases with the loss of a tooth.
With modern dentures, gone are the days of dentures falling out at inappropriate times. With technology advancements, dentures are now made to fit every crevice in your mouth for a perfect fit that will not slip or slide. Patients can choose from full dentures for entire jaws of teeth missing, partial dentures for multiple missing teeth, in addition to implant supported dentures for a more secure full jaw solution. Some patients may take a while to adjust to eating and speaking with dentures. However, full functionality and appearance will be restored to the mouth.
Damaged, chipped, worn or even severely stained teeth can benefit from dental crowns. Dental crowns are caps placed over the tops of teeth to protect from further damage, restore appearance, and to mend the tooth back to complete health. Our dental crowns are made from porcelain which makes the tooth look completely natural and will even be colored to match surrounding teeth. Dental crowns can also be used to replace missing teeth when placed on top of a dental implant. This restoration is permanently bonded into your mouth for long-lasting results.
