Cavities are no fun to deal with and are caused by the growth of bacteria on and around the enamel of your tooth. Even one cavity left untreated can lead to a tooth abscess (infection) or destruction of the inside of the tooth (pulp), ending in pain and possible tooth loss by extraction. At Parkside Dentistry, Dr. Jeffrey Smith provides the following comfortable, effective solutions to fully restore your teeth back to health:
These durable, mercury-free fillings are created with the natural appearance of your teeth so they blend in perfectly.
Dental crowns are used when tooth decay weakens a tooth so that it is unable to be repaired with a filling. At Parkside Dentistry Dr. Jeffrey Smith uses both porcelain and ceramic crowns to restore and return function to the affected tooth. Designed to protect and encase what is left of your natural tooth, crowns also have the appearance and feel of the natural tooth being replaced, giving you the confident smile you deserve.
Effective as a replacement when one or more teeth is missing, dental bridges serve as a long-lasting solution and function like natural teeth. More attractive and natural than dentures, bridges are made up of multiple crowns and a pontic replacing the missing tooth, forming an attractive smile that cannot be removed.
