Restorative Dentistry in Carrollton
If cracks, breakage, or missing teeth cause you to hide your smile behind your hand, a napkin or even a book, then Carrollton dentist Dr. Campbell can help. Dental problems like these negatively affect eating, speaking, and self-esteem. Moreover, teeth that are damaged can compromise your overall oral and general health. You don't have to settle for a less-than-stellar smile.
Dr. Campbell combines artistic vision and expert craftsmanship in every procedure he performs. He can replace missing teeth, remove tooth decay, and repair structurally unsound teeth. With dentures, dental implants, crowns, inlays, or onlays, and more, we can create strong, attractive restorations and give you an amazing smile. We want our patients to achieve optimal dental health and enjoy strong, healthy smiles for life. Let’s take a closer look at some of the procedures Carrollton restorative dentist Dr. Campbell may recommend to rejuvenate your beautiful smile.
If you’ve just been told that you have a cavity, then you may be thinking that the filling will just be one more dark mark in your smile. Not so with white fillings. Instead, these are made of composite resin material and we’ll use a graduated chart to select the shade the most closely matches the color of your tooth. Along with the aesthetic value of composite resin, you’ll also have a filling that is itself strong and helps strengthen the remaining tooth structure.
Whether by injury or normal wear and tear, our teeth are susceptible to cracks and breaks. A dental crown may be the solution that preserves your tooth. Depending on which tooth needs repair, Dr. Campbell will recommend the appropriate type of dental crown. We use all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or gold crowns.
Your tooth will be slightly filed down to make room for the crown. Then, impressions are taken so our dental lab can create a crown that fits perfectly between your adjacent teeth. While your permanent crown is made, Dr. Campbell will seat a temporary over your prepared tooth. In a couple of weeks, you’ll return to the dentist in Carrollton for the permanent restoration.
Tooth loss is a serious problem that can happen as a result of decay, gum disease, injury, unusual wear or oral cancer. There are currently more than 178 million people in the United States who are missing at least one tooth, and those numbers are expected to grow as the elderly population expands.
One of the best alternatives to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth is dental implants. Dr. Campbell will recommend you to a trusted oral surgeon who will surgically embed the implant in your jaw. Made of biocompatible titanium, the implant and surrounding bone tissue unite to form a solid foundation for your tooth restoration—a porcelain crown for one tooth, a bridge or dentures for several teeth. Aside from looking and functioning like a real tooth, dental implants offer the added advantage of preventing bone resorption that often leads to a shrunken jaw.
